The night was long and cold as it was the 11th month on the 12th day of 1803 when a woman by the name April Lee Smith was giving birth. There was a scream that could be heard across town, a man named Paul Reaper stood right by her side and held April’s hand tight as April screamed from giving birth in the one room run down shack of a home where they have been living for the past two years. The town doctor was a man by the name Frank Smith was April’s brother that was delivering Aprils baby. It was a happy time for April and Paul for this is their first child together. Paul was a black smith here in Shady Oaks, the town was sure not getting any rest on this night. No sir not one second of rest, but it was a day that will never be forgotten here in Shady Oaks.
Just outside the door was the rest of the Smith family and Reaper family, after a while the baby was finally out of the womb. There was a happy yell from Paul Reaper, he sure was happy when he heard he had a new baby boy, a son he would teach to be a man one day. The only thing that was wrong for the family is the baby did not have a name yet. April and Paul sat there all day to think of a name for the new family member, well a thought came into April’s head when she looked at Paul’s lips as he sat there with a large grin on his face, she looks at the her baby and called him grim reaper out loud.
Paul asked April, “what did you say to the baby?” April said, “grim reaper,” Paul said, “I like that name so that is the baby’s new name for his new life.” The couple went to the rest of the family just out side ready to see the baby and gave them the baby to see with the name Grim reaper, everyone loved the name and everyone was in love with the newest member of the family. Paul’s family is very large and April’s baby is very small, it was not at all that tough for April to go to Paul’s family for the holidays and birthdays. April loved Paul’s family and she felt like she belongs and she does not give it a second thought. After all April only had herself and Paul and her new baby as family. The new baby was very well loved in this town. Paul was working very hard to give grim the life he never had, the family looked for a way to help out April. Paul and April had a fight about Paul’s working all the time, the fight was so bad it ended their relationship for good, but they fought over grim as well. The fighting did get very violent as people in town noticed how bad April looked, black eyes swollen shut most of the time, bruises all over her body.
As the two went their separate ways grim was left with out a father. April felt like she was not stable enough to care for Grim. Paul was then kicked out of his family but they brought in April into the family, Paul was to never return to the family. Mrs. Rose reaper who was in deed Paul’s mother, talked April into taking grim to the local boarding school. A time of 5 days April took grim to the boarding school where grim will be raised till he becomes a man, this boarding school was top of it’s class,
As Grim had grew older the boarding school was his home, it was all he ever known, as Grim grew bigger he gotten stronger. He was not only the most strongest kid in the boarding school. He was also the most smartest kid in the whole boarding school. Grim was always done with his home work and he never gotten an low grade. When he had extra time in class he would do push ups, he always worked on his body and eating the right foods from the local native Americans A local tribe by the tribe name Sioux served meals for the local boarding school. but in return the natives get free schooling for their children as well. Grim was always good friends with all the natives, he did not make friends so easy with the others in his class, the kids hated him because to them Grim was not a normal kid. But they sure was right he was not normal, he was way smarter and way more stronger and had a goal in life. That’s right Grim wanted to be a sheriff of Shady Oaks.
Going threw school grim never got into a fight with another kid. He never had a crush on a girl or even tried to date a girl in the boarding school. Grim was just a kid who knew what he wanted in life and he sure was a go getter. He was determined to be the sheriff, little did everyone know Grim did his home work all a little to much. He knew everything there was to become a sheriff and it was his goal in life, Mrs. Johnston was Grim’s teacher. Mrs. Johnston loved Grim being in her class, in fact Mrs Johnston tried to have Grim as her own. Grim was one child that would have loved the chance to get out of the boarding school.
It was in Grim’s files not to be turned over to anyone but April smith. It was a long time after Grim did was on the schools top list to succeed in the field of his choice. The thriller was after Grim turned about 13 people wanted to see Grim do better in school then how he has always done the last few years. Grim was doing the most good doing odd jobs around town to earn his first months rent and deposit for after he is able to leave the boarding school.
