----------------- SAMPLE FROM CHAPTER 1 ----------------

“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. . . .”

The wheels of the hoist slowly started to turn, and the coffin was lowered into the ground. The crowd that had gathered included Reverend Kasper, a few of his loyal followers and the men from the cemetery. No news cameras, no reporters it was like the wake at the church was as far as they were willing to go. I had been standing off to the side and now that the people had left I was the only left at the burial. I clutched the red rose that I had been holding even tighter, and a thorn pierced my thumb, starting a trickle of blood that now seeped into the hole along with the plain wooden box. I glanced up and three rows back standing next to a monument I could see the outline of a man. I couldn’t be sure because of the glare that was reflecting off of the monument but I had a feeling of who it was. He had come.

With my head down I walked up to the hole before the coffin was completely lowered into the ground. From my pocket I pulled a necklace I had been given years ago. The years had dulled the shine of the metal but you could still make out the inscription written on the heart shaped charm.
