T h e  K n i f e  o f  N e v e r  L e t t i n g  G o (written by Patrick Ness)
Prentisstown isn’t like other towns.
Everyone can hear everyone else’s thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee- whose thoughts Todd can hear, too, whether he wants to or not- stumble upon an area of complete silence.  They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.  But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?

Here is a little Chaos Walking fic I wrote a few months ago. It is about Todd’s parents, when they first came to New World. So, here it is!

What is it? Why wont you let me see where Im going? Vanessa asked, giggling slightly at her husband, who had his hands over her eyes.

Its a surprise, he replied, guiding her out of the large commune where all the new settlers were currently living. He tried desperately not to let his Noise give it away; it was still a very new, unsettling phenomenon, which Vanessa tended to take full advantage of.

Surprise, he thought, over and over again. Surprise, Surprise, Surprise

Will, stop it! Vanessa giggled, as Surprise echoed throughout the small village.

Surprise,

Surprise,

Surprise!

He gently guided her round a bump in the dirt track, before leading her off the track onto some grass, across a meadow thick with wild flowers. She giggled as the tips of the blades brushed against her calves, insects flying away with each step. Will picked a bright red flower, and tucked it behind her ear.

Were nearly there, he teased, Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.

Vanessa tensed slightly, hearing voices and Noise up ahead, before relaxing once she knew who it was.

Cillian? she called, straining her head slightly to hear what he was thinking.

Cillian, be quiet! Will called laughing, before Cillians Noise joined his in Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.

As they reached the far end of the meadow, Cillians hand reached out to take Vanessas, guiding her closer to where they were supposed to be going. She heard odd remnants of Finally finished and Ben, wheres Ben?, before a loud and strong Surprise, Surprise, firmly drowned out any other Noise.

They stopped suddenly, Vanessa tripping slightly, when Will removed his hands, instead reaching them down to rest on her waist.

Surprise, he whispered in her ear.

In front of them stood a small cottage, made firmly of mud and brick, with a large downstairs and two small attic rooms upstairs. The door was made of roughly cut wood, with shutters on every window and flowers in the boxes by the gate. There was a pen around the back with some sheep, and the beginnings of a vegetable patch round the front. The whole house had been whitewashed, giving cleanliness to it.

Its beautiful, Vanessa gasped, tears springing to her eyes. She span around so she was facing Will. Im so proud of you, she whispered, kissing him. Although his face showed nothing but modesty, his Noise was filled with So proud, and Little cottage, and So beautiful, my beautiful Nessa. Ben came running round from the back, wiping his hands on a cloth.

All finished, he announced, Cillian, and all done now, All the plumbings done. Just need to finish our house, and then were all ready to move in!

He came forward to where the others were standing, tossing the cloth on the ground.

Do you want to look inside? he asked, inside, I hope she likes it, Surprise!.

Vanessa ran forwards, grinning in anticipation, dragging Will by the hand.

Thank you so much; Ill see you both later! he called to Ben and Cillian, who were already making their way over to the gate.

***

So, what do you think? Will asked, as Vanessa stood in the kitchen, gazing around. I know its not much, I mean, theres only a few rooms, what if its not enough, and theres only one real bedroom, the others only a box room, and theres not a dining room or anything, but theres a pantry with enough food for the animals as well as us, and I-

Its perfect! Vanessa said, happily opening all the drawers, and investigating every corner.

Thats good,

Nessa,

My Nessa,

She likes it,

Whats this? she asked, uncovering something in the corner.

Oh, thats a picture of my parents that I found; I didnt know where you wanted it, so I just left it.

She spun around the room, trying it in different places, until finally setting it on a shelf by the window.

There we go, she stated, proudly. Todd and Sally Hewitt. She paused, gently touching the picture, and not for the first time, Will wished that she, too, had Noise. Thank you for letting me take care of your son.

She turned back to Will, smiling sadly, and took his hand. How about you show me the rest of the house?

He smiled, nodding, leading her into the small bedroom, with the handmade bed that the villages carpenter, Mr Horton had made for them. The blanket that lay over the crisp, new sheets, was one of the few things that they had taken with them from Old World, and was Vanessas most prized possession, having been made by her grandmother. Will had picked some flowers that matched the colours and arranged them on the windowsill.

Its beautiful, Vanessa breathed, the clean, new room contrasting to the makeshift, dark rooms that they had been living in prior to this.

Youre beautiful, Will thought, louder than planned.

BEAUTIFUL,

Beautiful,

Beautiful,

Echoed throughout the house.

Will? Vanessa asked, suddenly nervous about something. The change was startling, as if someone had just flipped a switch.

Yes? he replied, whats wrong, whats wrong, whats wrong.

Nothings wrong, she said, answering the unspoken, yet nevertheless said, question posed. Its just I have a surprise for you as well.

As she led him out of the small, quaint bedroom, Wills Noise was filled once more with Surprise? Surprise?, only it was no longer an exclamation, it was now a question.

Surprise?

Surprise?

Surprise?

 They stopped once they were in the small box room, that was possibly large enough for a guest, but not for anything of greater use.

What is it? Will asked, Surprise? Surprise?, his worry getting noticeably greater.

Vanessa looked him in the eye, held both of his hands, and firmly announced, Im going to have a baby.

Baby?

Baby?

BABY?

Are you sure?

Gotta be sure, gotta be sure, but she wouldnt tell me it she wasnt sure, but what if shes not? What if she is? What will we do? We cant-

Absolutely. And, well, I checked with Mrs Cooper, you know shes good with this sort of thing, and she said that I was Will say something please or think something I could, I mean, there are drugs and medicines, if you think this is a bad idea, and I-

What? No, not her baby, not my baby, not our baby, not our surprise

And then, it was as if a dam had broken, and suddenly he was laughing, spinning her around, then putting her back down again, dont want to hurt the baby, dont want to hurt our baby, and kissing her soundly.

Who should we tell? Ben and Cillian straight away, obviously, and they can be godfathers! And Jessica, and Molly, and Mrs Prentiss, shes having a baby too, and what shall we call it? Is it a boy or a girl?

Will, breathe! Calm down! Vanessa giggled. We can tell everyone theyll all know anyway, given your Noise and of course I dont know if its a boy or a girl, although I think its a boy. Mrs Cooper said that the sickness was worse with a girl, and I havent been that bad probably why you havent noticed, especially given that youve been leaving so early in the morning.

Baby! Baby! BABY!

Quieten down! I expect that even Old World can hear you!

Wills only response was to kiss her again, grinning manically. Im going to be a Dad…” he breathed.

Im going to be a Dad! Me, a Dad! Daddy, Daddy, it sounds nice, Daddy

Will would you mind, maybe, if…”

Yes Nessa? Me, a Daddy, the baby will call me Daddy, Baby! Baby! Were having a BABY!

Would you mind if the baby was named after one of your parents?

Parents? My parents?

Only they did so much for us, so I thought it would be quite nice, you know…”

He moved a hand down to her still flat belly.

Todd Hewitt the second, he said. I like that.

Todd Hewitt Jr Todd Hewitt baby Todd Hewitt

Dont worry, Baby Todd Hewitt, Daddy will take care of you. Daddy will make sure nothing happens to you. Daddy will keep you safe. Daddy loves you. Daddy will make sure nothing ever hurts you. No spackle, no men, no creature Daddy will look after you as long as he lives. Nothing will ever hurt you, Baby Todd Hewitt. Nothing.

So, there is was! Hope you enjoyed that,
