"Why do I intrigue you?" I asked softly, careful not to disturb the tranquility of the morning. "Because you haven't lost it. There's a reason why Neverland beings you so much pain and longing. A reason why you don't hear the cries at night. A reason why you don't hear the pipe play it's tune. And a reason why you do not fear me." He replied, never taking his eyes off the scene set before him. "I've lost everything. My family, my home, my best friend, and almost my life. How can you of all people say that I still have something?" He turned and locked his eyes with mine. "Hope. You still have hope Tessa Brooks. That is far more valuable than anything else you could have. You long to get away from here because you are confident that you will return home." I remained silent, not knowing what to say but just waiting. "But you won't. You won't want to go home because soon enough, you'll forget that home ever existed. And when that happens, you'll lose everything." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I would especially like to thank my buddy Clifford (@clary2342) for making the beautiful cover for this book!
