    and his eyes were almost a grey they had a slight tint of blue. They were the color of someone 's emotion while dealing with the grief of their loved one. The one thing I found odd is the fact the devil wears glasses. They were rectangular frames large on his face. They only magnified his amazing eyes. " I don 't want it," I stared into his eyes. They were gorgeous. He staggered back as if I had punched him in the stomach. He looked as if he couldn’t catch his breath. At first he couldn’t form…

I light another cigarette then neared off to the park where I can be alone. ~ I push the snow off the bench and plop down. The park is quiet and lonely; no one in sight except for me.

Then I repeat. “TORNADO, TORNADO, TORNADO!” I look over into my neighbor's yard and see a slight pathway. I jump onto some bricks and almost lose my balance but stay on. Then once again I repeat. “TORNADO, TORNADO, TORNADO!” I make my way around house to house careful not to fall into any of the yards. I yell the message in each yard hoping people will understand. I find myself in Kenna’s…
