LOH: Ch. 2 "Draft One"CHAPTER 2
Night of Peril
Phoenix and James snuck out of their home and headed for the forest. The moon was shining brightly through the canopy of the tall trees, but there seemed to be something ominous in the air. Something not right. The wind howled eerily, swaying the branches in a foreboding manner, as if they were a warning.
James Did you really need to bring your sword?
N-No I I just wanted to Y-You know Im scared of the dark! They can see me But I cant see them And there could be so many of them James was fearful. He seemed very anxious and unsure whether to follow his brother into the depths of what appeared to be danger. I dont even know why I agreed to come!

Life So Far
So, I guess I just got this journal I guess I should start writing about myself, yes? Anyway My name is Phoenix. Phoenix Thaella. Yeah My name is pretty strange, but I guess thats what makes me unique, huh? But, anyway I live with my mom and dad in a small house in the woods. Actually, just on the edge of the forest, but I guess we cant be too picky about it, huh? Anyway, I have a brother, too. His name is James. Hes admirably strong, but the blade of his sword is no measure of his intelligence, no matter how sharp it is. No doubt, I take after mom more than he does. Im very shy, too; I usually spend time by myself drawing or reading, or going out to the forest to play with the fairies. Theyre very nice; they help me get over problems and theyre very helpful! They taught me how to make my magic just that much more strong and they helped me study herbs, as well. I dont tell anyone, especially J
LOH: Prologue "Draft One"It was a calm and quiet evening. The moon shined brilliantly upon the dancing waters of the river. Gentle breezes brushed through the branches of the mighty trees of the forest, creating a harmonic symphony of rustling leaves. Fireflies dotted the skies, flickering like candlelight. The howling of wolves could be heard and echoed in the distance, replied by the gentle coo of an owl.
In the center of the symphony of evening calm was a small, humble home nestled in the quiet depths of a clearing near the forest. It seemed to be a seedling among the many tall and ancient trees encompassing it. It was life; waiting to grow, waiting to learn. It was life that existed inside this dwelling, the pride and joy of the sowing of life.
The couple was looking at their two sons, twins. Strong and healthy twins. They were bonded strongly with each other. Like two sides of a coin, they were destined to remain together, inseparable.
They are fine children, are they not? asked the man,
Leaving Southampton She was in the kitchen when he stumbled in noisily, tripping as he went past the shelves and catching the edge of the table to keep himself from falling.
Pretending not to hear the stream of curses that followed, she kept her eyes fixed on the dishes, letting her hand trail in the soapy water. There was a loud scraping of wood against grimy concrete as he drew a chair and collapsed into it. At this she looked up, and after a moment's hesitation, she said, unnecessarily, "You've been drinking."
He clutched his head and said nothing. He hadn't shaved in weeks and stank of sweat and alcohol; he looked much older than his eighteen years.
They sat in silence for a while. Then he announced, loudly, "Fuck."
She didn't bother to tell him off. She just waited. And jumped when he suddenly brought his fist down, hard, onto the table.
"Our lives here are s
