As her vision flickered one last time, the man was gone. It was her mother looking into her eyes.  
Her mother's eyes were filled with so much love that it seemed to release her from her pain and fear as it had when she was a small child. Her mother cradled her as a baby, rocking her back and forth. She was safe now in her mother's arms. She was at peace. Mommy, her heart sang, you're here to save me.  

The warmth of her mother's love enveloped her tortured soul. She looked into her mother's eyes. She touched Kayn's face and started to sing a song that she had sung to her every night when she was very small.  

Sleep, sweet sleep till the morning 
Just dream away and close your eyes 
My love you'll be safe until the morning 
Sleeping in my heart, all through the night 
Although bad dreams come to scare you 
My love will scare them all away 
My heart 
The lights flickered, the pain went away, and her mother was holding her, singing "Sleep, sweet sleep." 

The beginning  

What if.... 
the things that go bump in the night that you thought were simply a figment of your  
wild imagination are in fact very real.  
Would you live your life differently if you knew that you were going to be corrected..... 
erased from this world sometime around your sixteenth birthday. 
You and your twin sister were never meant to be born.... 
There will be no place to run.... 
No place to hide.... 
You won't even know they're coming. 
Do you have what it takes to survive your Correction? 
Do you have what it takes to leave your humanity behind? 
If your answer is yes, then hold on tight...
