Sample Chapter

One day, a creature entered the local diner. The regulars whispered amongst themselves, uncertain what to do.

They weren't used to outsiders in town, no one ever did much coming or going. Still, Charlie took care of the creature, like he would any other customer.

"Can I get you anything else? Piece of our homemade cherry pie?"

"No thanks, just the coffee. I'm just passing through... off to see the world."

And just like that he was gone again.

The regulars went back to their business, but Charlie couldn't get that creature out of his mind.

"Off to see the world...."
