I lay there for a minute knowing nothing, feeling nothing, then the first thing that hits me is the smell! I smell blood, my own blood as well as other scents, smoke, burring flesh and death. Then a scent I cant quite place drifts around making me want to wretch. The second sensation is the pain. This pain i feel is explosive and even without opening my eyes I know my left leg is broken. No, broken is to soft a way to put it, shattered thats the word. My left wrist feels if it it too is broken, so I Dare to open my eyes and asses the damage.
My leg is a disaster. The bone protrudes just below the knee and the surrounding flesh is dark with dried blood, however a steady trickle of fresh blood spills onto the ground. I look at the rest of my body, and claw marks are scattered all over it but no animal did this to me. When i close my eyes I see the vile disgusting creature that did this to me. Its image haunts and mocks me, its eyes house a sinister intent. This Thing may look human but it is anything but. Outwardly you might think it was just a overly good looking person, but once you see those eyes that would be impossible, eyes that burn into yours, dark chasms that look endless and ancient like shiny volcanic rock.
All the girls said that it looked handsome and that its eyes just creeped them out. All those stupid girls, creepy was an understatement.
I stop myself. Wait. What girls? I realize in that moment I cant remember my own name, who I am or what I am and I search my memory and what I see scares me. my memory is next to nothing I only have small unimportant things like that I have to feed the chickens and collect their eggs at seven every morning, But I cant remember where the chickens are so what good is that going to do me?
Crap, I think. I'm going to die without knowing my name. What will happen to me when I die, will I still make it to Heaven or will I be sent to Hell?
I have nothing better to do so i look at my surroundings considering that I'm going to die her and all. Im in a peaceful meadow, there are little wildflowers growing around me all different colors. my eyes find a cluster of white ones and as I look closer there is red on them. hum. I think. Must be mine. however, I am wrong. beside the flowers I see a hand and that have has a body connected to it, a body of a boy that is vaguely familiar.
"Hel-" I begin And am cut off by the inhuman choking noise that comes from me. "H-Hello?" I cough out "Are y-you aliv-ve?" I ask in vain as the dead eyes of the boy stare at me.
My pain is slowly fading this can only tell me that I am going, my fingers and toes are going numb and cold, so I look for comfort in the few memories I do have. I close my eyes and I see the chickens. those damn chickens.
I'm throwing feed when I hear footsteps behind me they are soft as if someone it attempting to sneak up on me. so I spin around and toss the feed at the not so stealthy girl and laugh.
"Thought you could sneak up on me now did we?" a say as I continue to toss the feed. "How could you ever sneak up on me?"
She ducks behind the roost wall and grunts in protest "Stop it!"
"Never!" I yell maniacally as I run after her, and as I come to the wall without warning there is an egg cracked in my face. "blech" I complain "you didn't have to do that" as I wipe the egg from my eyes.
she falls to the ground laughing and clutching her stomach gasping for air. she is laughing so hard tears come to her eyes.
"WHAT ARE YOU LAUGHING AT?" I holler as I bend down to her
"I don't even know!" she sputters.
I grab a egg from a nest and crack it in her face. she looks at me with disgust as a smile grows on my face. "ha" i scoff and offer her my hand up. she takes it and we head outside and both of us collapse on the grass convulsing with laughter.
"I guess it is funny" I say
"yea" she agrees
This memory helps so I search for more of her and there are many more but one stands out I see the destruction of my home and that boy, my little brother. that creature did it all. he killed my brother my parents and the whole village. I see her though not dead but alive
I run yelling a name and i hear a name that draws me to the frantic girl. I lock eyes with her an breath a sight of relief.
I hug her "thank godness you're alright," I say, kissing the top of her head. She pushes herself away and takes my hand
"Let's get out of here, we have to become the last two survivors. we can start a new pack, and we can even start our own..." she stops and feezes
I sigh "I would love to run away with you." iIrun my fingers though her red hair "We should head off right away, before anymore trouble comes"
she nods as red flow to her cheeks "My father said to take the main road."
I nodded and took her hand as we ran, but some thing was wrong in the air. they had almost made it to the road when the stench of the creature hit him
She looked at him with big eyes
"I can smell the immortal" I whisper.
"your not going after it" she pleads.
I am surprised by this after all I'm a strong guy i can hold it off long enough for her to get away. "And why shouldn't i? It's close, your in danger."
"and youll die!" she cryed
I smile " i took an oath to protect you, I'm not going to break it."
tears stream down her face "then protect me by running away with me."
I shook my head "And why shouldn't I die protecting something i love?"
"Because I love you, you stupid fool!" she said through gritted teeth and closed eyes.
I grabbed her sholders "do you really mean that?" I asked franticly.
her eyes fluttered open "yes" she breathed
So i did what any guy would do I leaned in and kissed her. she gripped my shirt and kissed me back. I just wanted to hold her tighter and not let her go but i had to pull away.
i looked into her eyes "im still going after the immortal" i whispered "ill distract him as much as i can so that you can get away. ill eventually give him the slip and come for you could you at least agreee to that?"
"i guess so"
"I promise that ill find you again, no matter what it takes." I chuckle as i lift her chin an kiss her, turn and run off
"don't die" she whispers and I respond though she can hear me "I wont, and I will find you no matter what or how long it takes."
so i run in the direction of the stench and it leads me to meadow that i grew up playing in, training in and falling in love in after all this is where I first saw her. There is something dead wrong with it though the immortal stand in the center holding both sides of my little brothers head as he pleads for his life.
"NO!" I scream bursting form the bushes. I'm too late the immortal cracks his neck and blood sprays from his mouth to the white flowers. I stop.
"Hello my name is Sol, what is yours?" he asks
I just stare at him
Sol looks at me then the my brother seeing our family marks on our cheeks "oh, you related?" he purses his lips "A shame really that i have to kill you both" he sniffs the air " the she wolf she was with you, right?"
"No" i answer quickly
"I smell her on you" he says as he moves closer to me making me take a step back "you are a cute guy, maybe you had to say a painful farewell to her before running into battle to save her."
I breath in and out deeply preparing myself for what comes next.
"To bad, but I'm going to have to kill you, then her no happy ending, so sad." Sol smiled as he cracked his knuckles and neck "What was you name again?"
"My name." a say letting a smile creep onto my face "oh its nothing cool like Sol or anything" I spit on the ground " its so plain, I don't really like it." I shrug
"oh I cant fight you until I know you name. so I can ask God to forgive me and all that"
"Well if you insist it's Jordan, Jordan Shival" and I morph and lunge at him
