Tanith bit her nails a bit, looking around. "Okay, Veni Vidi. Can we leave now?" She shivered. "God this place is creepy." From above them, there was a brief screech of metal, but it stopped almost as soon as it started.
The sheriff's house was a meek little two story clapboard; probably nearly a hundred years old, it had a Victorian-style wraparound porch and a garage attached to the side. Joey opened the door and was nearly tackled by two young kids and a teenager. "Guys, off of me!"
"But daddeeeee! Joana saw a doggie outside and now she won't cook dinner because she's scared the smell'll draw it in!"
"It won't, the door's locked and the Ferals can't get in. Don't worry." Joey pried the kids off of him and patted the teenager on the shoulder. "Alex, can you get some of your extra clothes for this kid? He's freezing here." The teen nodded and ran upstairs; the two littler kids followed. "Sorry, they're skittish."
High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life. Fight fear for the selfish pain;
It was worth it every time. Hold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this ends.
A clock ticks 'til it breaks your glass and I drown in you again,
'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need. Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why!
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy? If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
