Chapter 1.

Chapter 1
Oakshire


"Get back here you stupid cat! You are so road kill when I get my hands on you!" shouted a teenage girl around the age of thirteen who was running around chasing a black colored cat with white trims around its legs. They had been running around the orphanage for quite a while and the girl was nearly out of breath. When the girl had finally caught the cat, there was a loud bang in the kitchen of the orphanage. "Nessa!" a middle aged woman with a plump face and black oily hair pinned into a bun raced out from the back door which connected the kitchen from the orphanage to the back yard where the girl named Anessa stood stiffly with the cat in her hands. The woman walked towards the girl and pulled her by the ear and dragged her to the kitchen. "Why is there tea spilt on the floor and why haven’t you mopped it?" The woman, a widow named Mrs. Maria how was in charge of the orphanage had entered the kitchen to get some snacks for the children had slipped because of the wet floor causing a flight of stacked plates to fall along with her. "Actually Mrs. Maria, it’s not tea. You see, Boots here he." but before she could finish, Mrs. Maria had already gotten the meaning. Her face went pale at first and then turned bright red. Her eyes were bulging out as if they were going to fall out of her face and then, she screamed.

For the rest of the day, Anessa was assigned to kitchen duty. Which made no difference because since Ms. Mutia, the kitchen lady was unable to be at the orphanage since last week due to her son who was having a wedding; Anessa had already volunteered to help around the kitchen. She loved cooking and making a meal for 17 children wasn't that big a deal for her. Anessa had been in the orphanage for as long as she could remember. Every time a couple would come to adopt a child she would be their first choice. With her long wavy blond hair and mesmerizing emerald green eyes, long lashes and rosy red lips, she was definitely eye-catching. But problems would arise every time she went to a new home. Her adopted mother would be jealous of the attention her husband was giving her, at times she had almost faced being raped but then, strange things would happen without her realization. More than once she felt as if she was capable to do a lot of thing that a normal person would have never been able to do like moving things with her mind or so called telekinesis, the ability to control water and plants, not to mention the bond she had with animals. And all these weird events made every single one of her foster parents hand her back to the orphanage.

Mrs. Maria had once adored her too, there was always a small envelope filled with money for her. A monthly expense to say, but no one ever found out who had been sending them. After a while, the money stopped coming which as well brought an abrupt stop to Mrs. Maria's love towards her. To Mrs. Maria, she was just a burden no matter how bright, potential, and perfect she was. She was treated even worse than the other orphans because of all the trouble she made. Anessa let out a small sigh. Her life had almost always gone downhill since she could remember and she didn’t expect much from it. Then again, she still wasn’t longing to spend the rest of her life cooped up in the orphanage. She knew she had a bright future. If only she had the chance to prove herself.She started humming sadly to a song she memorized, she had the most beautiful voice and even Mrs. Maria couldn’t deny it.

She continued humming as she stepped out into the garden and started singing afterwards. She had always felt at peace with nature. it gave her the only sense of belonging she knew and she was not about to give it up for kitchen duty. She had always adored the orphanage garden. A lot of the planning was also from her very own creativity and she loved doing garden work during her free time. Not long after,there was a sudden noise within the bushes and the little kitten boots made her way out. She purred as she walked around Anessa’s leg and then it nudged Anessa to follow it. The kitten moved faster and faster making it almost imposible for Anessa to keep up with her. They were about 3 kilometers away from the orphanage when Anessa realized they were in the middle of the forest. infront of her stood a beautiful achway made my the two rows of tall oak trees on each of the sides. She couldn't resist the urge to walk through and walked slowly awed by the beauty of nature. As she neared the end,everything started to change around her.The next step she took led her to a whole new place she never saw or been too before. What was weirder was that the sun was shining so bright! It was broad daylight at that time when just seconds ago she could’ve sworn it was already night fall. A small sign showed a street named “Oakshire”. It gave a ring in Anessa’s memory. But she couldn’t remember from when. She walked down the road and wandered off into the woods. Her adrenaline was fast. But she couldn’t figure out why. She predicted it was because of the sudden change or it could also be because she could feel somebody watching her.
