It's been a year. A whole year, has gone and went in a blink of an eye. Damn.
I didn't really want to start writing. I think it's kind of stupid, but Hope talked me into it. Say's it'll be good to get stuff of my chest.
I don't even know why I'm writing these. It's not like your ever going to get them. Not like I'm ever going to send them.
Still, Hope says I should write down what happened. Holy Hell a year. I've been gone a year.
Damn I don't know where to start.
I asked Hope. He says to start from the beginning, but I don't really know where that is.
Did I ever tell you about my life before we met? Before Az brought me back?
I don't think I did. Oh! Crap my name. Wait you know it. You say it with that stupid greek accent of your, when ever you forget its now the 21st century cause your a dork. Cause I still-
Anyways, maybe I should write this like we're meeting for the first time again. Or maybe like were pen pals writing to each other for the first time, though your never gonna get them cause I'm never gonna send them. Well here goes nothing.
I'm Lucael Vincent Bosch. You can call me Luca. God this is stupid. You'd know this.
Anyways. Anyways, I'll tell you about my life before Az brought me back, before we met, before this year past.
I was born in a small town inside the providence of Florence Italy called Fiesole. Don't think you ever knew that. My mother was Italian and my father was german. From what Hope tell's me from what he gleamed from our older siblings, they were a beautiful couple before the war. Papa left the family to go when Marcus and I were one and when he came back two years later, well you know what war does to people. He wasn't the same. Mama had Rosey a year after he came home and our family of seven grew to eight. I was five and Peter had just turned fifteen and was able to start working, so he quit school and started helping the family out. Papa had stopped working by then and Mama had her hands full with the five younger kids. Mary tried her best to keep Marcus and Antonio out of trouble, but the two of them were some of the biggest mischief makers I have ever met!
The antics Toni would drag Marcus in would cause massive upheaval in the household and even around the town. I miss them. It's been a while since those times, but I remember one day Tony got Marcus to hold a bowl of water to the ceiling while standing on the table and then asked Mary to help him preform a magic trick. He asked her to hold the bowl with the bottom of a broom and mad Marcus let it go and get down. After saying some weird gibberish and making stupid hand movements they left Mary alone with the water. She was pissed to say the least. Marcus came back over and tickled her till she dropped the bowl on herself and spilled the water. It was stupid, but funny.
I miss them.
I haven't seen them since Hope and I were sent off. Though looking back at it we didn't go with an old Uncle we were sold of to demons. Okay not demons, Shadow walkers and demons are different, but still. We went through hell and back those first years.
I still wonder why they left us. I mean by the time they did Gabriella had been born. Maybe it was cause me and Hope couldn't work? Or we were the dead weight? I dont know.
I don't want to write about this anymore.
I, I've been doing well, now. Went off on a journey of self discovery. I left last October, a month after you left. I didn't really know what to do with myself so I figured I'd go exploring. I started figuring myself out. When Az brought me back I wasn't human anymore. I was how you knee me. A Shadow walker, but I didn't know exactly what that was. I'd only know the darker side of them. The things that ran the slave trade and black market, but thats not how they started. I went journeying through the Shadow realms.
Rumors had drifted through Hope's bakery and around the town that there was an old woman who was the mother of them that new their beginning story and I headed out to look for her.
The leads where weird and I went to even weirder places, but I learned how to control shadow walking better. You know how I always sucked at that. Well I haven't ended up in China, not once since then! Shut up I can hear you laughing at the letter. I'm being serious here! I actually got it under control now with some other things.
I have to get going soon, break times over and I need to get back to work. I'll write some more to you later Than.
