14smithteen16 Death's flying immortal horse, carrying Gordan and, of course, Death, landed unseen outside the inn. Gordan pulled out the hourglass labeled Aaron Goodman. It was almost empty. "Why does he die?" Gordan asked.

THAT IS NOT FOR US TO DECIDE, Death answered in his usual way of talking without speaking. Death entered the inn by passing through the closed door. Gordan opened the door and followed.

message 19: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments Summer grabbed some sheets and walked to the stairs.

message 20: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 Death didn't ever have a problem getting around people, Gordan noticed. Wherever he walked, people just seemed to drift out of the way without noticing. He eyed the black clothes that Death had allowed him to borrow. He looked like he was attending a funeral. With this job, I very well might be, he thought.

Death silently approached the stairs to the second story rooms. WE MUST HURRY, he said to Gordan.

message 21: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments She started up the stairs. 'Man, this gets so boring' she thought.
She took another step and tripped. She droped the sheets and tried to ballance herself, but slipped on the sheets and rolled down the stairs.

message 22: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 ((Is she magical in any way?))

message 23: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments ((Yup, elemental, but doesn't know how to use her powers))

message 24: by 14smithteen16 (last edited Oct 17, 2013 09:23AM) (new)

14smithteen16 ((Okay, so she can probably see Death and Gordan.))
Death paused a moment as the girl landed at his feet. Death's ever present grin seemed to grow a bit wider for a second, before he stepped over her and continued up the stairs toward the room of Aaron Goodman.

Gordan stopped after Death and bent down to lend Summer a hand. "Are you alright?"

message 25: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments "Yeah I'm good" she blushed from embarassement. "Thanks" she righted herself and picket up the sheets. "Do you need a room?"

message 26: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 "Uh, not exactly," he muttered. "I'm looking for someone named Goodman?"

message 27: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments "oh, he's upstairs. I'll take you to him" she grabbed the sheet from the floor and started up the stairs a little more carefully this time.

message 28: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 "Thanks." Gordan wasn't sure she would like what was going to happen next. He followed her up the stairs, and stopped in front of the door to the room. The door was locked, but that never seemed to stop Death. Gordan was sure he was already inside. "Could you open the door for me? It's kind of important."

message 29: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments "okay" she pulled out a key and unlocked the door opening it for him.

message 30: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 Gordan entered without a word. A very old man lay sleeping on the bed, his chest slowly rising and falling. He saw Death standing over the man. Gordan took out the lifetimer hourglass. Only a few seconds remained.

TAKE THIS, Death handed his black scythe, with its blade of shimmering silver, over to Gordan. The blade was as thin as a piece of paper. WHEN THE TIME RUNS OUT, SLICE ACROSS THE NECK. He pointed with a bony finger.

Gordan looked back at Summer. He wasn't sure if she could hear or see Death, but she could see him, and it was hard to miss the hollow look in his eyes.

message 31: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments she gaped at death "y-you...i-i know you.." she wrung her hands but didn't move.

message 32: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 Mr. Goodman's breathing slowed and became irregular. Gordan hefted the scythe. Beads of sweat formed on his forehead. Gordan Checked the lifetimer, the hourglass with Goodman's name on it. Just a few stubborn grains left. Saying that he was nervous would be like saying that Hell was a little warm. The last grain of sand fell and hit the bottom of the hourglass. Gordan swung the scythe with all his might, cutting across the man's no longer moving neck. Nothing seemed to happen.

message 33: by Rachelle£ (last edited Oct 17, 2013 06:32PM) (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments As soon as Gordan swung the scythe Summer lunged forward to stop him arms outstretched. "NOO!"
she looked at the man in astonishment "n-nothing happened.." she grabbed the scythe from Gordan and tossed it across the room and glared at him her heir beginning to lift as though the gravity was turned off and a wind started blowing around them.

message 34: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 Gordan was numb. He made no move as Summer took the scythe. Gordan wasn't sure that the blow had connected. It looked like it, but he hadn't felt any resistance. He watched the old man for any hint of movement. There was none. The rising and falling of the man's chest had stopped. Gordan sank to his knees, tears streaking down his face. "Why?"

message 35: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments Summer sofened and nelt beside him putting a hand on his shoulder to comfort him. "What's wrong? Why were you trying to kill him?"

message 36: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 He thought a moment. "I don't know. I'm... Death's apprentice. If you're capable of seeing him, he's over there," Gordan pointed.

GORDAN, Death interrupted. WATCH. As Gordan looked, Mr. Goodman sat up in his bed, looking a bit bewildered. No, not quite. A transparent version of the man sat up, leaving the body behind. It looked at Death.

"Can you see that?!" Gordan asked Summer with excitement.

message 37: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments She turned and saw the man sit up. She gaped her mouth opening and closing like a fish. "Wh-whats going on?" She whispered gripping Gordans shoulder tightly.

message 38: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 IT'S THE MAN'S SOUL, Death explained, half to Gordan, and half to Summer. THE SCYTHE DOESN'T KILL, IT ENSURES THE SOUL'S PASSING. As he spoke, the man slowly stood up, looked at Death, looked back at his body, which was still on the bed, then back to Death.

"Oh," he said simply. "I see." Death patted him on the shoulder as the soul began to fade, and disappeared entirely.

message 39: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments "Bye Mr. Goodman" she sat on the floor tying to take everything in. "S-so your death?"

message 40: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 I AM DEATH, said Death.

"And I'm Gordan," said Gordan. "Nice to meet you," he said in a voice that implied that it was not, considering the circumstances, a good time to meet anyone. "I'm his apprentice, I guess."

message 41: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments She jumped up and lunged at Death punching him in the skull and breaking a couple ribs "YOU MONSTER!! YOU KILLED MY BROTHER!!"

message 42: by 14smithteen16 (new)


But Gordan was not letting this go. "Who was your brother?"

message 43: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments She punched death again for good measure. "My brothers name was Kalvin. He was 12 when he dissapeared." Her chin trimbled as she held back tears.

message 44: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 ((Is Kalvin dead, or just missing? This is something Death would know.))
Gordan tried awkwardly to comfort her, if only to stop her from punching Death himself in the face. "How did he disappear?" asked Gordan, sounding genuinely interested, despite his false comforting.

message 45: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments ((Missing))
She quit u ching death, but glared at him. "We were playing in the creek 4 years ago. I turned around for a second and when I looked back he was gone"

message 46: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 SO YOU ASSUMED HE WAS DEAD, JUST AS YOU ASSUME THAT I KILL THOSE THAT I TAKE. I DO NOT CAUSE DEATH, I AM DEATH, he explained. Gordan merely watched this exchange. Death retrieved the scythe from where it had fallen on the floor. IF YOU DON'T MIND, WE HAVE SOULS TO FERRY.

"Wait, what did happen to her brother?" Gordan asked. Death did not respond.

message 47: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments With a gust of wind the door slammed and death was spun to face Summer. "Answer the question!" She clench her fists tightly.

message 48: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 I SUSPECT YOU'LL FIND OUT ON YOUR OWN. GORDAN, YOU MAY SPEND SOME TIME WITH HER IF YOU WISH. IT'LL DO YOU SOME GOOD. Death passed through the wooden barrier as if it didn't exist, and disappeared.

"Um..." Gordan muttered. There were no words for a minute. "W-what are you gonna do?"

message 49: by Rachelle£ (new)

Rachelle£ | 177 comments She watched death go not even hearing Gordans question. "What did he mean by 'it'll do you some good?" She turned to look at him.

message 50: by 14smithteen16 (new)

14smithteen16 "Who the hell knows?! It's not even my fault I'm his apprentice." Gordan turned a bit red at his outburst. "So where's this creek anyways?" he asked.
