Chapter One
    The stores were back to life after the holidays in preparation for New Year's. Hundreds of humans roamed the stores hoping for a bargain, praying for one last special. Parents attempted to contain their children while grabbing food, alcohol, and fireworks. Luke could almost guess what they were thinking. “Bring on bedtime so we can party hard, drink way too much, and enjoy ourselves for just one night!” He couldn’t help but gain pleasure from their exhausted faces. Luke let out an exhausted sigh as he made his way through the crowds, dodging small children as they ran carelessly through the people.
    Unruly little shits, if only I could show them who they just pissed off , Luke thought. A snarled smile formed on his face as he imagined the catastrophic chaos he could have caused within the confined walls of the store he was desperately trying to escape.
    He reached the exit, extending his arms to push the doors wide open. Fresh air filled his lungs, Luke stood there for a moment allowing his mind and body to relax. His anger slowly dissolved making it easier for him to maintain control.
    Luke’s mind began to process what New Year’s Eve actually meant, not only for him,
