Eyeless Jack fell asleep before I did, I stopped singing and stared at the ceiling. “Why did I take this path..?” I asked myself, I fell asleep thinking of what would happen next.
I must of slept in because I was being shaken. “Raven! Wake up!” Eyeless Jack yelled in my ear. “What?!” I yelled as I hit my head on Eyeless Jack’s head. “Ouch..” We said in unison. “Sorry…” I said putting my head down. “It’s fine, it’s my fault I yelled in your ear. By the way, are you okay?” Eyeless Jack asked as he rubbed the back of his head. “I’m perfectly fine! Don’t worry, but thanks for asking..” I said blushing a little. “Uhh, yeah! No problem!” Eyeless Jack said smiling as his face started to become red. “We should head down stairs and eat!” I changed the subject and smiled. “Yeah, your right let’s go!” Eyeless Jack said as he ran and opened the door. “You don’t have to open the door for me…” I said blushing more. “Oh, I uhh….well just go for today.” Eyeless Jack said smiling and blushing a little more.
We went down stairs to find Laughing Jack sitting on the couch, Jeff in the kitchen cleaning the knives and Toby getting ready to head out. “Hey, go sit down on the couch and I’ll get you some cereal.” Eyeless Jack said going in the kitchen. I sat down on the couch next to Laughing Jack. “Hello Raven.” Laughing Jack said excited. “Hi Laughing Jack.” I said smiling at him. “Your smile is beautiful, smile more please.” Laughing Jack said smiling. “I don’t smile a lot, so it will take a while for me Laughing Jack.” I said looking down at the carpet. “Oh? Maybe I can fix that….” Laughing Jack said getting quiet at the end. “What was that last part..?” I asked. “Oh it was nothing! I should get going now, goodbye lovely!” Laughing Jack said smiling as he walked and then disappeared into a black mist. “Raven! Here’s your cereal, we only have Rice Crispy right now…” Eyeless Jack said frowning a little. “Oh, I actually like Rice Crispy! Thank you Eyeless Jack!” I said smiling and blushing. “Y-your welcome!” He said smiling. We finished eating fast and Eyeless Jack invited me to go on a walk and soon after we packed up we left.
“Eyeless Jack?” I asked waiting for a response. “Yeah?” He answered. “I know a cool place we can go to, do you want to go?” I asked and waited. “Sure.” He answered. “We’re going to have to run to get there in time.” I said, Eyeless Jack seemed to pause as his brain started to panic. “What if I lose you and I can’t find you?!” He asked stopping and grabbing my shoulders firmly. “Y-you won’t…..I-I promise…” I said blushing. “I-uhh…sorry. Let’s go…” He said walking. “Okay.” I said and started running and he followed.
“Whoa!!” Eyeless Jack said in amazement. “Glad you like it!” I said smiling. “Whoa, what’s that?! And that?!” Eyeless Jack said. He seemed like he was having fun, I for some reason felt alone. I went over and sat on the bridges edge and looked at the moon and star’s.
“Raven…are you okay?” Eyeless Jack asked running over to me. “Huh…yeah, I just felt alone for a moment…” I said looking down at the water. “Oh…why did you feel alone..?” Eyeless Jack asked. “I…honestly don’t know…” I told him. “Then you shouldn’t feel alone!” He said sitting next to me. “I just….there’s something missing in my life…..but I don’t know what it is yet.” I said thinking hard about it but I dismissed it and spoke again. “We should head back. Come on!” I said smiling and running. “Wait up Raven!! I’m as fast as you!!” Eyeless Jack said smiling and running while out of breath. “Slow poke!” I yelled. “Not!!” Eyeless Jack yelled back. “Fine! Your not but your slow to me!!” I yelled louder because we were making distance between each other so I slowed down to keep him in my sight. “Why’d you slow down?” Eyeless Jack asked out of breath. “To keep you in my sight.” I said. “I’m not a kid Raven!” Eyeless Jack said smiling. “Not because of that, there are Sirens and Witches here.” I said quietly. “Oh, good reason…” Eyeless Jack said quietly too.
We soon got back to the Mansion and went in the bedroom to unpack our things. I pulled out my headphones and right before I put them on Eyeless Jack said. “Can you sing Angel by Deadman?” “Sure Eyeless Jack.” I said and started singing the song. “I’m in love with an Angel, Heaven forbid….” I continued singing in till the end of the song. “Your beautiful- I mean your voice- yes your voice is beautiful!” Eyeless Jack said as he started to panic and blush. “Uhh- yeah thanks, Eyeless Jack, thanks very much!” I said smiling as I panicked and blushed….
