"I think of myself a gentleman. My power, my strength and my action are all driven by one thing- the instinct to protect the things I hold dear. But heed this: if you choose to stand in my way, you will see nothing gentle. Only everlasting suffering and anguish far beyond your comprehension."

A few weeks ago,The music of the party thudded throughout the house and the smell of sticky teenagers was rife in the air. It was the vision of misguided youth with alcohol, drugs, drunken make-outs and a whole lot of annoying the neighbours.Not exactly my scene but I was with my boyfriend who, as an established member of the football team, mixed with this crowd regularly.

Years ago..."Ella! Connor! It's time for bed!" My dad called up the stairs.Our little feet could immediately be heard scurrying towards our warm beds. We knew that if we were quick, he would tell us a story. We snuggled tightly under the warm covers and awaited our father. We were eleven and twelve but you could never be too old for his stories.

October 11thI woke the next morning with the blazing sun shining through the window, flooding the room with bright light.A gentle breeze blew outside, rustling the branches of the trees but the room was perfectly still.
