Chapter One!

I always knew I was different, I just didn't know how I was different. Now that I know, I'm not sure I want to...I didn't have the slightest idea I was that different.

I'm all-alone in the world, my family would probably disown me if they knew... my friends would probably just freak, and the love of my life, the only one who would understand disappears when I need him the most. I thought growing up would make life easier...all it's done is make life more complicated.

I expected a lot of things during my freshman year of high school but I never would have guessed that a virtual stranger would come up to me and say something that would change my life forever.

"Alice," I heard the silky voice whisper my name from behind.

I whirled around only to come face to face with the most gorgeous guy I have ever seen. Eric was the definition of tall dark and handsome. I swear, if you looked it up in the dictionary his smiling face would be pasted there.

"Y-y-yes" I stammered.

"I need to talk to you about something...in private, will you call me tonight so we can set up a time to meet?"

"Sure!" I said a little to enthusiastically," I mean, yeah that'd be fine."

"Great he said!" A smile stretching across his face, "I'll talk to you later then." that said, he walked away.
