The Girl in the Forest ch4That night as I slept I relived my worst nightmare. The wind was whipping my hair against my face. Evan was in front of me guarding me from my death, his black hair flying everywhere. "Evan please, I don't want you to die because of me."
"I'm not moving until I see you safe," he said pausing a few times as Sora brought down her whip of wind. She struck him many times, sometimes against his face, others against his chest. I stood there and whimpered, knowing I wouldn't be able to get him to move. Sora was probably just trying to weaken him to get to me, but he was way too stubborn to go down. That is until she hit him in the neck. He dropped like a bag of rocks. At that exact moment the whole world slowed down. I watched him plummet to the ground in what seemed like hours. As he hit the ground I dropped to my knees. I flipped him over as I screamed his name," Evan, Evan, Evan answer me please."
He slowly opened his eyes and looked at me,"I love you my rose, I've never regretted meeting
The Girl of the Forest ch. 3I sat there in bed thinking about Ion and our race. "I mean she won but she didn't care," I said out loud. I got up and got so I'm ready for school in the morning, because I cant sleep. I'm about to go for a walk around the pits when my mom stops me. "Where do you think your going."
"For a walk I cant sleep, I promise not to get hurt."
"Fine." I walked out the front door and up to the mouth of the volcano and sat down. "I'm worried about Ion, I wanna see her safe and happy. What do you think Kazan?" The volcano rumbled and grumbled in response to me. "You're right right I should go visit her family's graves, thanks Kazan," I threw in a tree branch as an offering to the volcano. Getting up from my seat on the ground I headed into town.
I stood at the entrance to the cemetery entrance trying to force myself to go in. Finally going into the cemetery I searched gravestones for the Blood family. I finally find them and I notice Chasm standing at a gravestone next to them. "I know your there
The Girl of the Forest ch. 2"It's the battle to be called the fastest student here at Dark Horse High School. Our current champion, Ion Blood, versus the rookie, Alan Trapt," Chasm announces. We look at her grinning. She raises her flair gun," Ready, Set, Race." As soon as the gun sounded I was gone, I left Alan in the dust. I started to run backwards to see where he was, he was pretty far behind.
I turned around and took off my shirt showing my bikini top. By taking off my shirt I just kicked into second gear. As I rounded the corner into my second lap I realized he dropped his shoes and shirt allowing him to catch up to me. I then remembered something my mom told me a long time ago," When you don't think you can run anymore then imagine running in your favorite place."
As I came into my third lap I kicked into my highest gear, by imagining I'm running with my parents in the forest. I turned around again and he was getting tired. I ran backwards into the fourth lap then I tripped over Alan's shoe as I'm about to
The Girl of the Forest ch. 1The forest was filled with darkness as I ran barefoot over the landscape. My straight brown hair flying behind me, my shoes in my green messenger bag. I finally hit pavement when the sun started peaking up over the clouds. I ran like that until i got to school. Most of my classmates got rides to school but me.
"Hey forest girl hurry up or you'll be late," some stupid jerk said to me.
I'm Ion Blood and yes this is my usual routine, but over the next few days things will go wrong. The only reason i don't get a ride to school is, one is because there's no road to my house , two I only have one friend and she lives on the beach. Her names Chasm White, shes been my best friend sense i started school, her black hair is untameable.
I run into class and sit down in my seat. Putting my shoes on as soon as the bell rang for class to start. I looked over at Chasm and she was fast asleep on her desk her hair sopping wet. She swims from her house on the beach to the little dock at the ba
