Cold and cruel, but deep down she’s a scared little girl who just wants someone to love and care for her.
William Taylor was a criminal. He had robbed, beaten and even killed people in the past and as a result he was on the run from the police. It wasn’t long until they cornered him and his journey to jail was inevitable, but just as the cops were going into arrest him a slim figure burst out of the shadows and within a few seconds the cops were down and a woman was leading William through the streets away from the men who she had just beaten. They finally stopped when they reached an abandoned building. They went in and spent the night together in love. When the night was over the woman was gone and a few weeks later William was arrested and sent to jail…for life.
After some time had passed a man came and told William that his child was there. He brought a baby girl in a basket and William didn’t need anyone to tell him that the child was from that mysterious woman that had saved him from the police…because the baby looked exactly like her. William named her Teresa. He softened at the thought of the woman and wanted to keep the baby for himself, but he was in jail and had no family that he could give her to. So with no other choice he sent her to an orphanage. The orphanage was cruel and didn’t treat her as good as the other children because she was a criminal’s daughter. As a result she became quiet and distant and the only time she would smile was the time she had visiting her father.
Years passed and Teresa became a young woman (14), but never felt part of the world she lived in. She even started hating her father. “How could he do this to me?” she would ask herself…deep down she knew her father loved her to pieces, but it wasn’t enough for her to just know, she needed to feel it…to see it in his eyes or sense it in his touch and there was always a window of glass between them to stop it. Then it happened, during one of her crying sessions one of the staff at the orphanage came in and abused her. That was the last straw; she cut herself completely from the world and became cold and cruel. After the horrible experience was over she ran from the orphanage as rivers of tears fiercely ran down her face. She finally stopped running and sat in a dark alley…still crying. That’s when she heard it…a sound like a bird moving its wing. She looked up to see a creature she had never seen before in her life, a harpy! It suddenly swooped down toward her, but out of the corner of her eye she saw a boy about her age throw something toward her. She caught it and she saw it was a small, bronze knife. Her rage swelled in her body and looked up toward the creature flying toward her. Time slowed and she saw the teachers who had treated her like the scum, the children who had bullied her and finally the man who had just abused her. So with a cry of absolute fury she thrust the knife right through the harpy’s chest! It disappeared in a shower of golden dust. The boy who had thrown her the knife came up and said that they had to leave immediately. Teresa didn’t trust him at first, but the look in his eyes sent her a message that this was true so she finally allowed him to lead her. On the way he told her that all the Greek myths were real, that he was a satyr and strangely she straight away believed him…now she finally had someone to blame for her life. They finally reached the place he called Camp Half Blood and she was instantly claimed. “So you finally show up, Mom?” she said to herself as she walked down the hill to her new home.
