Title: The Invisible Companion

Barnabus Chapman had a very peculiar name. His name was Barnabus Chapman. At a very young age, he developed an invisible friend, which is not very uncommon, except this invisible friend is not like the others. Everybody thought young Barnabus was going through a phase because, after all, he was just a child; however, nobody knew that this phase would never end. As the child grew older, he became very frightened of his companion. He began to out bad thoughts into young Barnabus’ mind.

She had a gothic painting, which really caught his attention. There was a handsome man with long curly blond hair dressed in a fine silk. He had a mirror in his hand, but his reflection from the outside was not in the porceline hand mirror. Instead you seen his reflection of what he was on the inside a monster with blood dripping out of his sharp fang like teeth. His eyes are what really intrigued Barnabus the most; they were solid black as if he had no soul. Barnabus found strange comfort in this disturbing painting. All sorts of these fine paintings were hung all over her deep royal purple striped walls. He noticed on her table in the center of the room was a shiny metal stand with weeping angels decorated around the circle with a crystal ball surrounded by tarot cards.
