I FINALLY HAVE WIFI!!! *celebrates* *cheers* *dances around like crazy*
Yes, I’ve been suffering without my wifi. XD
Okay, so this story turned out kinda long, but I think you’ll all enjoy it! Prepare yourselves for a cliffhanger… XD
I used these 8 prompts, Loren:
My feet carried me as quickly as they could as I passed through the village cemetery. The White Shadow was hot on my trail. No one knew exactly what this creature was or where it came from. All we knew was that it was cunning, it was brave, it was brutal, it was relentless – and it was hunting us down.
I glanced over my shoulder, my long, blonde hair whipping in front of my face. I saw two White Shadows emerging from the trees in the Ragoul Forest, their wide eyes fixed on me.
I ran on breathlessly until I saw the sign I’d been searching for nailed to a tree, saying; Here be faeries.
I smiled in relief and made a quick right turn, entering faerie territory, where the White Shadows dared not go. The one thing they feared were faeries, which was a mystery to us all. The White Shadows turned around in fright. I was safe now.
I slowed to a walk and headed for the falls where others brought their pet dragons for refreshing water. I saw one of my good friends, Elodie, perched on a fallen tree, reading a book to her dragon. My heart ached as I watched them together and memories flashed before me. Bad memories. Ones that I preferred to leave unopened. Yet every now and then, I found that I needed to open up that box- no matter how much pain it brought me.
“Maybell, are you alright?”
I entered back into reality and quickly wiped the tears away that flooded my eyes.
“I’m fine, Graham.” I replied stiffly.
“You’re thinking about her again, aren’t you?” He inquired, his eyes showing concern.
“Yeah.” I choked, barely able to speak of it.
“It’s been three years since you lost Atta. How long do you expect to go on like this?” Graham wondered.
“She was all I had left, Graham. When I lost her, I lost a part of me, too. I don’t know how to go on without her.” I sobbed. Graham placed his hand on my shoulder and said, “I know it’s hard. Atta fought bravely alongside the rest of the dragons. But, Maybell, you have to move on. You can’t spend the rest of your life grieving. Find happiness again.” He encouraged, but I couldn’t accept his words. I couldn’t let her go.
“I can’t. I can’t be happy. At least not until I avenge her death. Until every last White Shadow is destroyed.” I said with a scowl. Seeing there was no changing my mind, he stepped away.
5 months later….
My fingers curled tightly around the rope, I pulled myself up the mountain. Every inch hurt and my hands burned from the rope rubbing against my skin.
Almost there, almost there.
I encouraged myself as I climbed. At last I reached the mountain’s ledge and hoisted my body up. I lied on the ground, despite the fact that ice lay all around me. White Shadows lived in the mountains where they spit ice cubes everywhere for their nests. They were close to becoming the dominant species and I wasn’t about to let that happen. The world needed a hero, so that’s what I became – in my mind at least. It hasn’t happened yet, but I knew it was about to.
I entered the cave where I knew whoever was behind this would be waiting. Ice filled every inch of the cave and my teeth chattered. Each second it seemed to get colder. I wrapped my arms around me and shivered. Then it happened. That tingle. That terrible tickle in your nose. I fought it, but sometimes there’s no stopping it. I sneezed so loudly, you could surely hear it from a mile away. I placed my hand over my mouth as I gasped in fright. I heard what sounded like dragon wings flapping and then something heavy landed behind me.
“Oh, Maybell. You couldn’t stay away, could you?”
“Elodie!” I exclaimed in complete shock. “You’re behind this?”
Elodie huffed and said, “Yes, Maybell, it’s all me.” Before I could grasp my head around what was happening, Elodie grabbed something from her pocket and then my world went black.
*bites bottom lip* I have a feeling you’re all gonna hate me right now XD
