There have been shadows in the corner of your eye since you were born. One day, you finally catch one in the center of your vision and it deflects a car hurdling towards you. As you look around, the shadows are preventing multiple untimely deaths from happening to you.

I always felt like I was being watched. I just never knew by who. I could swear to anyone I knew that I’d seen them, the shadows lurking just outside of my vision. As I grew into my late teens, I began to stop questioning, and just accept that I had bad eyesight, regardless of the perfect vision the doctor said I had.

One day, the one time I wasn’t paying attention as I crossed the street, I looked up to see a car coming straight for me, paying less attention than I was. But, just before it hit, something moved out of the corner of my eye and hurled itself into the car, knocking it across the street. I looked down at what had caused that kind of tremendous effect on that car, and there it was. The shadow, that had always been there. Just outside of my direct line of sight. It lay there, helpless. I picked it up before anyone could see, and ran to an alley.

“What are you? Why did you save me?” I pleaded with the shadow as I set it on the ground.

It looked at me, or at least I thought it did. We are just what you believe us to be. Shadows. We have been sent to watch you. You had a deadly disease when you were born and weren’t supposed to live. Your parents sold themselves for you to have a life. Now, we keep you safe, until you turn twenty-one.

I turn twenty-one tomorrow.

And then what happened????
