Chapter 1.

Chapter 1

        She kills everything she touches - and she is a hugger.
        Penumbra cannot go on any longer.
        She has been walking for so long, getting weaker with each step.
        But she sees the dead grass slowly becoming greener; the darkness slowly losing its hold on her.
        Finally, she can feel the Dark slip away. The ground underneath her feet is healthy green grass; a great weight leaves her soul as the darkness lets go.
        Penumbra looks at her deathly pale skin. Color rushes back into it.
        Her scalp goes from being bald to being covered with brown hair, styled in a pixie cut.
        She grows a couple inches taller.
        Penumbra watches as her jet-black robes are replaced with blue jeans and a red T-shirt; her heeled boots are replaced with green sneakers.
        She is in the mortal realm now.
        Penumbra squints, and can make out a building in the distance. Filled with purpose once again, she walks towards it.
