That part of the forest was tranquil. There was only the chirping of birds to be heard. The rays of the sun pierced through the partings in the leaves to illuminate the ground. The ground was littered with dry and fresh leaves which had fallen.
There was a figured rested on the trunk of an oak tree. The figure had blonde hair, white skin and was adorned with dirty grey clothes. A gentle breeze blew on the girl, causing her to stir. Gradually, those baby blue eyes opened and stared at nothing in particular until they were able to focus. She could not recognize her surroundings at first until the memory hit her like lightning.
It was very dark and she was running without focus. She lost her friends. Then she stopped to catch her breath. That was where the memory stopped.
With a start, Kasa jumped up from where she sat. It had just dawned on her that she was in fact very lost. She took a second look at the place she was
The sun kissed his sand colored hair. Liam had been wandering about for the whole morning and afternoon. He had gotten up early to find the others. Thus far, he was unsuccessful. He was about to give up until he heard a Voice singing. The voice was so sweet to listen to. It sounded like it was a nymph singing. It caused a wave of calm to wash over him. He closed his eyes in order to savour this sweetness and short lived peace of mind. Liam was rooted on the spot until he concluded that the owner of the voice should be investigated. He listened for it. For some reason, there was nothing to be heard. The forest was a quiet as ever, as if it had always been this quiet. "But I'm sure I heard singing," he said to himself. "How come I suddenly feel like there was never anything here to be heard? Let me try again." He listened again for it, this time with more focus. This time, he heard the sweet voice again. It sounded like it had never
We all stood behind a tree close to the South border to make sure that nobody was there. The five of us were hurdled together in one spot."From here, it's going to be your call, Catori," Fenris yelled over the rain."Okay," I managed to say. I kept wondering if he felt what I felt whenever he was close to me or if I just happened to have some sort of crush on him.Get your head in the game, Catori, I scolded myself. The last thing I needed was to be caught up in my daydreams about somebody who couldn't care less about me."There's nobody there," the lady I had come to know as Amar said. My eyes made a beeline for the security post with my vision was slightly blurred due to the rain. True to her words, there was nobody there."Once we get passed that guard post, we just have to keep going straight ahead to the big building in the centre of the town," I told them.T
"What made me even think that moment meant something? Why did I deceive myself into thinking that it meant anything at all to him. I'm just a cruise." I must have spent the last hour scolding myself while in bed. I tried falling asleep to no avail. I tired myself out so much with my self scolding that I just decided to take my phone to the walk-in closet and just stay there. At least I had enough clothes to use as a makeshift bed.Again, my flashlight accidentally landed in the Reapers' direction or maybe my hand deliberately flashed it there. My face automatically assumed a scowl when I saw them cuddled together. Taking my pillow, I briskly crossed the room to the closet. Nestling myself in the makeshift bed I made, I soon dozed off.The sound of violent knocking woke me up from sleep. "Who is it?" I asked groggily. I got up and went to the door to see one of the guys whose names I didn't know, the one who had a ta
Fenris held his breath as a figure walked passed his hiding place. He held unto Catori's waist even tighter than before. Hopefully, nobody would think to come in here. "Well, there is nobody in here," a rough male voice said. "So why did we even come here? To waste our precious time?" "Well," what sounded like a fidgeting elder started, "the Beta said we should come and check just in case. He also said that Mrs Maxwell has been acting strange for some days now." "Just because of a random call," the other man hissed. "Anyway, let us get out of here. I have more important things to do." The door clicked outside. "Wait, wait, wait," Fenris muttered under his breath. Thankfully, it was like they all read his mind and stayed hidden for a little while more. When he was sure that the trespassers were gone, he dragged a half conscious Catori out of the closet and laid her on the bed. "I wonder who tipped them off
"Who's in there?" they heard from outside, in the bedroom. The voice didn't belong to Mrs Maxwell, and it wasn't Beta Calian either. To be on the safe side, Catori signalled to the other four to find places to conceal themselves for the mean time. Without wasting time, she wrapped myself in a very long wool material that was found laying on the floor."I'm sure that I heard sounds come from in here," the voice said."You heard sounds or you just made the decision to waste my time again?" she heard Beta Calian say. His tone was laced with acidity and irritation."Sir, I..." He was cut short."Shut up and let's leave!" Beta Calian thundered. "I have better things to do than to give into every whim you get. And don't you ever think of calling me out to this room again when you have no solid evidence that someone is here.""Yes... yes sir," the minion stuttered."Good. Now, let us leave this plac
"How is it that you are my dad?" Liam asked the man. They were seated in the dark cave. The revelation that had just been brought to him was more than any shocker he had ever been given his entire life."So you're trying to say that you can't even remember how your father looks? I thought you said he disappeared when you were ten," the red eyed man said."Exactly. Emphasis on he 'disappeared'," he hissed. "How do you expect me to consider remembering a man who just up and abandoned me when I was being faced with the new burden of survival?""That makes some sense," the man said. "But still, I think you should at least have a vague memory of what your father looked like.""To be honest, I do not care. But I do know that you did not have red eyes the last time I saw you. What's up with the change in colour?"The man regarded Cassarina and chose not to speak in her presence. "Anyway, my name is Arthur," he said instead. "
Someone touched Valentino's shoulder. "Who are you?" a man with a deep bass voice asked him. Valentino turned his head to look at his discoverer.Shoot. What am I supposed to do now? he pondered, staring at the man. The scar across the man's face showed that no lie was going to get him Without answering his own question, he made a run for it."Go after him!" the man yelled. Valentino zapped through the corridors leading to Catori's room with every able bodied man who was in the area hot on his heels."I just hope that Catori is back at that room," he muttered as he ran.Catori got to the door to her room, her pursuers hot on her tails. She managed to put a great distance between herself and them though. "Get your things and run!" she yelled to the people inside as she fought with the handle of the door. Someone finally opened it from the inside. "Get your bags," she said rapidly."But where
"Kurt, stop shouting. I hear something." Kasa stood up from the ground with some difficulty. "Should we check it out or should we just avoid the trouble?" Kasa asked in a whisper."Check what out, Kasa? I can't hear shit," her brother said. Kasa stared at him in disbelief."Can you not hear some footsteps coming in this direction or is your sense of smell your only proficiency?" she asked. "Well, no problem. I'll just go check it out myself, just in case it's Tori."Kasa followed the sound of the footsteps crushing dead leaves as they went. When she felt she was close enough, she hid herself behind the large trunk of a tree. She sensed that it must be more than one person as the footsteps were not in as coherent enough to belong to one person alone. As cautiously as she could, she peeped out from behind the tree trunk. There were three people: a red eyed man whose eyes she could even see from that distance; a girl and a young man
