AN- Hello, this is veeheart914, your author. This is the prologue of my new story, "KEEPER: The Book of Secrets". I hope you enjoy it! If you don't like dark stories, you may not want to read this. It may have some disturbing things.
Me: Hey! Mom! Can I have…
Me: But I didn't ask yet!
Mom: You will NEVER own a tv show! You're 13!
Me: I own nothing….*sigh*
Prologue: Ignorance Is Bliss
People have problems.
People have secrets.
People pretend they don't.
They lie, act, deceive.
No matter what you say, the concept is the same.
I, Sonny Monroe, am ashamed to say I am one of those people.
And now there's no turning back.
They all think Zora know everyone's secrets.
They're wrong. Way off.
Zora doesn't know any of the dark things. She's only found the tip of the iceberg.
I'm the one that knows everything.
I'm keeper. I'm 'Boss'.
No one knows.
Not Zora. Not any of the others.
I see to it that they see nothing they can't handle.
They don't know any of the depressing, heart shattering, mind blowing things I know.
It's nothing to brag about, really.
These things put you into a twisted mental state.
Leaves you mangled, dirtied.
Only a shell of the person you were before.
Nothing is normal after the first secret.
They're right when they say ignorance is bliss.
Most of the knowledge I now have, I'd rather not know.
If I had known what I was getting into, I wouldn't have done it.
That one fateful day changed my whole world.
I had decided to check out the vents after work.
I mean, why not? Zora seemed to love them!
I crawled among the narrow metal pathways for hours when I saw it. A small red door with a large S engraved in the center. The curiosity getting the better of me, I crawled up to it. I traced the big letter with my finger tips when suddenly, it wasn't there. I fell forward into a chamber. It looked very medieval and it gave off a bad vibe. Something inside me was telling me to run as fast as I could away from there. I tried to get back through the opening, but the panel wouldn't budge. For the time being, I was trapped. Then, out of nowhere appeared a low square table with a blood red book on it. There were unfamiliar carvings on the cover that seemed to be floating around on it. In the center was a blank rectangle. I walked up to it and as soon as I got to it, words showed in the open space. It read "The Book of Secrets". I again, being curious wanted to know what these so-called secrets were. I opened to the first page. It was blank. I flipped through the whole book. Blank. Until I got to the last page. Words started forming as if someone invisible to me was writing. I read what the words said.
If you are reading this, you are the next Keeper. There is much for you to learn. This knowledge, if found by the wrong people, could become a curse. You have powers. Dark powers. These powers won't go away until you die or until you are forced out of this position. Don't get your hopes up, you'll probably die first. You can see how many days people have left to live. You can't meddle with this. If you do, you'll die. You also decide where people go when they die. If you mess up, you die. You can enter dreams. You cannot use this for your own pleasure. Only for the secrets. If you don't follow this, you will die. You can kill people if you think words that are hurtful enough. Control your thoughts. You are the head keeper. You are boss. If anyone finds out, you guessed it- you die. If the wrong person finds out, they'll kill you in a second. There are things that aren't meant to be known. Knowing all is your job. You are the keeper of secrets. You have other keepers that know certain parts, but only you know all. The first secret is that your father, David Monroe, told your mother. Exactly three minutes later, he was brutally murdered. We know all, Allison. You take the book with you. To others it will look like a normal diary. Every day, open to the first page. You will see a secret. You'll know what to do.
I was shocked. Up until then, I had been told my father died in a car crash.
Another thing was that a lot of the people in my family had been crazy.
Is that what the keeper thing does to you? I didn't know what to think.
I quickly found my way back to the vent in my dressing room and went home with the book, wondering of it was real the whole time.
- flashback over-
Well, that's how this train wreck started.
How a sunny girl was to start being changed into a twisted, brutal, angry, dark, secretive person.
How I came to face this awful decision I have a head of me.
How do you decide where the one you love goes after they die?
How do you tell them that you've known that they would die today for a year?
I guess I should start at the beginning of the real problem.
AN- heyo! Veeheart914 here again! I hope you're enjoying the story so far! Please review! It really makes my day when you do! And plus! I have a lot of inspiration for this story, but I don't want to write if no one reads! I will post the next chapter tomorrow! I already have it written!
