~ First instalment in my Black Butler series ~

Shadow was thirteen years old. She had been working in the Noah's Ark circus for over three years now as a solo aerialist act. Everyday went by the same - blankly. Shadow was sullen and icy cold to anyone and everyone, regardless of how kind they were to her. She hated her life at the circus. Spinning and tumbling before a crowd in a skimpy costume wasn't exactly how she wanted to live her life. Albeit, she managed, but she didn't care. Everything was the same to her. Tasteless and indifferent. 

She craved something new; something to get her out of this hellhole and into a new life. Though, she knew this was only wishful thinking. They'd never let her leave. After some time, she simply accepted that this was her life now. To be a mindless puppet, tied down by her strings. She never expected her tedious life to change. That was, until, a young boy and a tall, dark man joined the circus. Both amazingly talented. Both equally suspicious. Despite how much she wanted to, she swallowed her words for a change.

Because, when she saw the boy's mark on his back, she knew for sure that they were one and the same...
