Chapter One

Since the untimely death of her mother, Serenity went to live with her brother in Domino, Serenity had just turned fifteen, and was a very timid teenager.

She had been home schooled by her mother and now she was going to be going to Domino High and she was kind of scared.

Today she went to the Mall with her brother to get some new clothes for school, and as she was walking around the Mall, she got the feeling that someone was following her, but when she turned around there was no one there.

When they were through, and went back home and as she took her things to her room to put her new clothes away, again she felt like someone was watching her.

She hurried out of her room and went to the kitchen where she sat down opposite her brother and when Joey saw how upset she was, he asked her, "Rene, what's wrong?"

With tears running down her face she said, "It happened twice, I felt like someone was watching me, but there was no one there, I'm so scared, what do I do."

Joey said, "When did this start to happen?"

Serenity told him, "Ever since the party that your friends threw for me, I've had the feeling like someone was watching me, but there's never anyone there."

Joey then told said, "Tomorrow, I'm going to take you to talk to Ishizu, she's the sister of Malik, you met him at the party. Ishizu has the ability to sometimes find out what's going on, and maybe she can help you."

Serenity wiped the tears from her eyes and said, "I'm afraid to go back into my room or to be alone, Joey, will it be alright if I sleep in your room tonight, I'll sleep on the floor if you let me."

Joey went around the table and sat down beside her and he put his arm around her and said, "Rene, you can sleep in my room, but I'll be the one sleeping on the floor, then tomorrow we'll go talk to Ishizu."

Serenity hugged him and then his stomach began to growl and they both started to laugh and she said, "What can we make for dinner?" That night they laughed and had a great time fixing dinner and then doing the dishes.

When it was time for them to get ready for bed, Joey went to the basement and got his old sleeping bag and went back to his room and then he opened it and got a couple of pillows and then he gave Serenity a kiss and they went to bed.

During the middle of the night, Serenity was having a dream and a evil present invaded her dream and then what was a very happy dream, turned into a horrible nightmare, that she couldn't get out of.

Dream Sequence...

In her dream she was having a great time back in New York, she was walking to the theater with her mother and they were laughing about seeing "The Producers", when all of a sudden the sky turned dark and when she reached for her mom's hand, her mother had disappeared.

Then she looked around and she didn't reconize where she was, all she knew was that someone was coming towards her and she was terrified, but she couldn't run away.

Then all of a sudden the presence that was trying to get to her disappeared and her mother was there screaming something but she couldn't make out what she was saying. Then all of a sudden she woke up, she was breathing so hard and her heart was racing and she was covered with sweat. Finally Serenity was able to scream and she screamed JOEY!

End of Dream Sequence....

Forgetting that he was sleeping on the floor, when Serenity screamed, Joey started to get up fast and got tangled in the sleeping bag and he went tumbling across the floor and hit the dresser.

When he finally got to his feet, he hurried over and sat down next to his sister and he took her into his arms and said, "Rene, what's wrong?"

Serenity grabbed hold of her brother and she sobbed, "Someone's trying to get me, please don't let them get me please."

All he could do is hold her and try to get her to settle down; she was shaking so badly that he thought that he'd have to call a doctor. "Rene please stop, you're going to make yourself sick."

She then wiped her face and she said, "In my dream, mother and I were coming out of the theater after seeing "The Producers" and we were laughing and having a great time, then the sky turned black and when I tried to grab hold of mom's hand, she wasn't there.

Then I felt someone trying to get to me and I couldn't run, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't move. Then all of a sudden, mom was there and she was yelling something at who ever was trying to get hold of me and then I woke up. Joey what does it mean?"

Joey held her in his arms and then he said, "How about if we go get some hot chocolate and tomorrow I promise that we'll go talk to Ishizu and maybe then we'll find out who's after you."

They went to the kitchen and Joey made some hot chocolate and they sat at the table drinking the hot chocolate and just talked about things that they remembered about their mom and dad, they sat there until the sun rose, then Joey said, "We need to get changed and I'll call and see if Ishizu can see us today."
