“Welcome to hell!” The Devil had a big smile on his face. “We’re going to get to know each other very, very well.”
John wasn’t sure he wanted to. He’d heard about this guy, and he didn’t like what he’d heard.
“Could I please go to the bathroom?” he asked, looking for some kind of escape if even just for a moment.
“There is no bathroom!” He laughed and laughed, echoing through the halls.
It always… (more)
“We have to stop meeting like this,” the swordhands warrior said to the mantis priestess. “If the dark lords find out, we’re doomed.”
“I know… I’m so sorry.”
“Me to, my love. Goodbye.”
They parted ways with heavy heart that night. One day interspecies love would be accepted in this world, but they would be long gone by then.
The warrior was sad, so sad…
Larket held his hand out towards the giant in front of him.
“Stop!” he said. “Don’t come any closer!”
Someone tapped him on the shoulder. He jumped.
“Let him in”, the tree beside him said. It had a face. Hands and fingers were branches growing wildly.
The squirrel stared up against him. It had a judging look on its face, like it had something nasty to say. The rabbits laughed a wicked laugh.
“You…” the giant said. “You have broken our rules…
The twilight was once again starting to light up the sky. He had been waiting all night.
“Please? he said once again, pleading begging. “Please open?”
He couldn’t understand. The disappointment tore his soul, broke his heart. His smile was still pasted to his face, hoping till the very end. Inside he was crying.
He’d seen her in the forest, seen her walking between the trees. Her beauty made his heart beat faster, his hands shake. He wanted her, He needed her…
He looked down on his reflection. He saw his own face, dry and worn, nothing but a shadow of who he used to be. The forest was dying around him.
There were no birds anymore. No animals, just a fly every once in a while. He had learned how to catch them, but they weren’t much food.
Down by the lake he could see the old pram lying by the shore, sunken into the water. There were no more fish, no more nothing. Poison. It was where it had started, so silently.
He followed the water upstream…
He could feel the horrors in the corners, the evil of the shadows. He could feel the monster lurk, creatures run in fear.
He wanted to leave, wanted to run. He was still there.
He wanted to scream, he wanted to fight. He stayed still.
Paralysed by darkness, nowhere to flee….
