On a hill, above a small village stood a dark and mysterious castle named The Harovich Castle. Many rumors had surfaced about the inhabitants of this castle, who were rarely ever seen by the villagers that lived below. The most prominent of these rumors was that the The Harovich Castle was home to one of the most feared creatures in the land: vampires. Having no proof, however, these rumors only survived in the stories of children who often used them in an attempt to scare eachother. Recently, though, the rumors had returned to the minds of men and women in the village with the sight of a strange boy who had been seen wandering around at night. ~~~~ Adelaide dropped the empty flour bags outside, behind the bakery. She wiped the sweat from her forehead as she looked up at the sky. It was a beautiful, sunny day and a slight breeze blew against her face. Her gaze shifted to the eerie castle that who's shadow cloaked the entire village during the early morning. She stared at it curiously, daydreaming about what the people who lived in the castle. 'I wonder what they are like,' she thought to herself. She didn't believe all of the rumors about them being mean and evil monsters. He dad roused her from her thoughts as he called for her from inside the bakery. She gave the castle one more glance before she walked back into the bakery.
