Delilah Regenes. Born into a family of wealth and power. Born with a scheduled life, and

a path set with all the necessary precautions. This is what the entire empire of the

Regenes family thought of their newest and final addition to the family line. She was to

continue the legacy of the Regenes. She would be prosperous! She would be powerful. She

would be everything her father had been. Except the Regene clan...was entirely wrong.

She was pretty. Delilah was the perfect little girl. She wore frilly white dresses and

allowed bows to be placed in her hair. She had jade green eyes and the darkest of hair.

She had fair skin and when she smiled (though rare, to her parents dismay) the largest of

dimples would appear upon the canvas of her face.

But there was something very wrong with the perfect little girl. A flaw. A flaw so

obvious that no matter what the elder Regens did, it could not be hidden from their

overly publicized world. The girl was mad.

Not overtly so, but subtly. She would host tea parties in her expansive room with her

"friends". When her mother asked why she hadn't sat dolls about in the little chairs that

surrounded the small and detailed table, Raven would merely look up at her, puzzled,

explaining that her dolls wouldn't talk to her, but her "friends" did. Bewildered and

disturbed, Mrs. Regenes covered her fear with the denial that it was a phase Raven was

going through.

But the "phase" continued.

They told Delilah not to talk to her friends. That they weren't really there. This led

Delilah to tears as she solemnly agreed to no longer speak with her friends.

By the time she was sixteen, the family believed her to be cured of her "visions". She no

longer spoke of the floating black creature and the other horrifying friends that she had

come to know over the years. The Regenes believed that their troubles of their heir

continuing the family had ceased and that all would go along according to their plan.

Until Mrs. Regens stumbled across the journal of her which was carelessly hidden beneath

her bed. Inside it's detailed pages, Mrs.Regenes found that the family schedule would not

be followed according to plan. Fantom, Headless Man, Chopped Up Dog...All their

apprearences, plights...Their history, their likes and dislikes...The colour drained from

her face as she called her husband to Delilah's room, where they cried over the book. Not

of the apparent illness that their daughter possessed, but of the fact that they, the

Regenes, the family that had been knighted by the queen of England and given the respect

and courtesy of the president of the United States, would never continue. It would all

end with the twisted sights that their monstrous, strange child their daughter had

created within her equally seemingly twisted mind.

They called her to the study. She arrived. She in turn drained the colour unwillingly

from her face as she saw her leather bound, yellowing book upon her fathers desk.

He told her she was going to see a professional.

Neat story. I like the idea and it gives her a very interesting background. Especially since everyone knows who she is, making it difficult to hide her activities. I can see certain people taking a big interest in her...
