Drabble Day 24


It was the first time I’d spent the night with Sage. We were eleven. Sage found his dad’s collection of VHS tapes and one labeled “It”. Curiously, as Sage always did, he popped it in and we watched the story unfold.

I learned about monsters every day of my life. They didn’t scare me. And I knew this was fiction, but that clown — Pennywise. I was terrified. I had nightmares on top of my nightmares for months.

I could never look at a clown the same again. Dorian once tried to take me to a circus once — it didn’t go well.

My name is Nox Sétanta. I am first and foremost a fictional character escaped from the mind of my creator AJ. In layman's terms I'm a magic wielding monster hunter born to my human mother and my Venatori father.
