Chapter one: Ice Moon
I walked out of my house as the crisp, cold air touched my skin. I could see my breath, my eyes shining white in the moonlight. My feet slowly made their way across the snow-covered ground. The tall pine trees surrounded me. I lived alone in the forest—just a little cabin in the middle of nowhere.
My name is Sage, I am 24 years old. I have always lived alone. Ever since my mom died and my father left me. I could never figure out where my white hair had come from. My mom was a blonde and my dad a brunette. I had icy blue eyes which were also strange. My mom had brown and my dad had green. As I made my way to the river that ran near my house, I thought about how cold it had gotten this winter. I pulled out my fishing pull and put a fake little fish on it. It shined in the night. I Cast the line out to the rushing water. hoping to catch dinner. But as I was waiting in the silence of the earth, a pair of eyes caught my attention. I stared into their green-yellow glare. My lips cold against the night mumbled. "w-who are you?" It said nothing. All it did was stare. I slowly started backing up. reeling in my line. My voice- a little stronger called out again. "Who are you." This time it turned away. running off.
That night I had only spam for dinner. With a glass of water from the river. But hey- it was the best water you can find out here. And it's very clean, coming from which mountain I do not know. As I finished up my "Dinner" I went to the small bathroom upstairs of the cabin. That's where my room was and a guest bedroom. Not like I ever had guests. I guess it must have been my room as a child. See before dad left me- at least he thought of teaching me how to fish and cut wood for the fireplace. So I started a miny fire not too big. I crawled into the sheets and tried to fall asleep.
My feet ran across the harsh ground. My eyes determined on a figure in front of me. My breath was loud as I continued to run, faster and faster. The figure did not stop. I yelled something at it- but what? What had I yelled? And what was the figure? But then, it started turning... I could finally figure out what it was. After a whole lot of running. A lot of yelling... here it was. The truth to this masked thing. Finally, it was almost fully turned around-
I woke up abruptly in my bed. I looked out my window to see sunlight peeking threw a cloud. I clenched my fists. I had awoken from the truth of what had visited me last night.
I went to my mini library in one of the downstairs rooms. I pulled out a guide to city people. Maybe it was one of those- tho I hope not. I heard they are hard to deal with. Feisty little things. So I started flipping threw the pages. Not realizing what had been watching me.
