Chapter 01: First Attempt To Return

I, Julius Eagle, have just a few days ago, been kicked out of my haven. In my haven, I got free meals, was able to socialise with many different types of people, from all different backgrounds and cultures, in the haven we were all equals. Depending on what each person did outside the haven, decided how long one remained in the haven. Some just for a couple of months, some for their entire lives.

This place I am referring to as a haven, is of course – prison. My stay within the haven has ended, so I was forced out. However, I will return, to my old life style, to my old friends, and my old sense of comfort.

I shall return to my haven.

I am walking down the street, just a bit past rush hour. How can I return to my haven? The answer is obvious, I just have to commit a crime, and get myself sent down. What would be the most effective method? Anything bar murder is fair play. However, whilst I am at it, I might as well try and get sent down for as long as possible.

It is at that point I notice a girl, she is wearing a local high school uniform. Perfect, rape is at least a decade within the haven. There are also lot's of people around to witness my crime, so my guilt will be undeniable. I now have a plan, time to put it into action.

As the girl begins to cross the road, I prepare to hunt my prey. I dash for all I am worth.

"Huh!?" The girl is wearing a shocked expression. Sorry that I am going to do this to you young lady, but I simply must return to prison.

I jump at the girl, and push her down to the floor. I cushion her head with my hand, I don't want to cause her unnecessary harm.

*Beep beep* - A car horn from behind me rang out. I look back at it. It's a stylish red car, I'm not to knowledgeable about them, but even I can tell that it cost a pretty penny. But enough about that, I return my gaze to the girl.

I have the girl pinned under me. Now I am going to do the deed. My haven is calling me. Don't worry little girl, there are plenty of people here to stop me, so just play my victim for a while. As I begin to move my hand towards the girl, a man approaches me from the side.

"You just saved that girl's life." The man says to me, I suddenly stand up in shock.

"Wait!? What?" I could not hide my confusion.

*Clap, clap, clap, clap!* - all the nearby pedestrians are applauding me. What on earth happened!?

"Thank you for saving me sir." The girl says to me with an angelic smile. "If it wasn't for you, I would have been knocked down by that speeding car."

That horn that came from behind me? Shit! They completely misunderstood my previous action. I was trying to rape her; not save her.

*Clap, clap, clap, clap!* - the applause is still ongoing.

"I am Lily Sparrow, what's your name?" The girl who I accidentally saved introduced herself.

"I...I'm..." I stutter. I can't remain here. I run away as fast my legs can carry me. That damn car ruined my great plan to return to my haven.

I can only cry for my misfortune.

Author notes

Let me just say first off, don't take this series seriously, or to heart. What characters do in this series in no way reflects on my personal beliefs or morals. Okay now that, that is out of the way. This is a little side project I am going to do every now and then. Soul Anomaly and Reality Of One shall remain my two main series. Please review and tell me what you think. This is a bit different from what I am used to; so it feels like I am writing blind. I'm sure there must be a word for what Julius is going through, but I don't know it. But, I hope everyone enjoys it all the same.
