Til Death Due Us Part

By Amanda White

Action / Horror

Chapter 1

Lunette's P.O.V

I heard screaming as I walked out and saw that there was a hole broken in Wall Maria. Titans were starting to walk in, the ground shaking as their feet hit the ground. Out of the corner of my eyes I saw a girl running in my direction. She look to be around my age with dark, shoulder length hair. On closer inspection I noticed blood dripping down from a gash that ran along the top of her head and she also seemed to be covered in blood, if it was her own, I have no idea. But my attention was drawn away from her when I felt the earth below me start to shake even harder. Turning my head around, I could see the form of a titan approaching and while it was still in the distance, it was heading straight for us. Turning my head back toward the girl, I noticed she had not stop running and by the looks of it, she was going to attempt to pass me. When she got close enough, I reached out and grabbed her arm.

"Are you trying to get yourself killed? Don't go that way!" I said to her she tried to shake me off "Can't you see that there's a fucking titan that way?" She stopped struggling and look down at me with her amber, fear ridden eyes. She seemed like she was going to respond when suddenly there was a crash and suddenly we were thrown back by a strong gush of wind. Attempting to sit up, I looked up and realize that the titan was getting to close for comfort. Scrambling onto my feet, I quickly look around and spot the girl from earlier laying a few feet away. Running over to her, I noticed she seemed to be stunned so my first instinct was to grab her and throw her over my shoulder. For someone almost half a foot taller than me, she didn't seem to be that heavy. Hearing the heavy steps of the titan approaching, I took off running down an alley and made my way toward the boat dock. I was shoving my way through the huge crowd only to be stopped by a group of soldiers.

"Sorry but we cannot let you on right now, there is simply too many people and we need to wait for the other boats to get here." Was the only reply that they gave me. So I was supposed to sit here and wait to become a snack for a titan?! Oh I don't think so! So I shoved passed the soldiers and suddenly heaved the girl onto the boat, jumping after her. We both hit the deck with a thud, sending a few of people sitting near where we landed scattering out of our way. I heard a small groan coming from the girl next to me.

"Are you doing okay?" I asked, concerned about how many hits she has took today and not knowing how much damage she has received. She just looked at me, slowly blinking before she finally responded.

"I..I think so? But, I, uh wanted to thank you for saving me!" She nearly screamed her thanks at me. Just as I was about the respond, she threw herself at me and hugged me. That's when I realize she was crying; honestly I do not even think she realized she was crying. I decided to wait until she calmed down before I started to question her.

"So, if you don't mind me asking, what's your name?" I asked her softly.

"Sola" she replied with a snivel.

"I'm going to call you Soul." I told her as she looked at me with a confused look.

"What is your name?" she asked.

"It's Lunette" I replied with a smile. At first all she did was stare until she slowly responded with a small smile. She then slowly curled in toward my side. Looking down in confusion, I realized that she fell asleep. I don't blame the poor girl, she has been through a lot today. Looking down, I noticed the gash on her head was still bleeding. Reaching down slowly so I would not disturb her sleep, I took the bandana I carried in my pocket and began ripping it into strips so that I could wrap her wound.

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more. Some book have a comparison between other books that fallow like premises so i will do my own: Arena has the compellingly emotional stresses and t...

kotabsavage91: This young author really knows her stuff. From the 1st chapter I was sucked in and entertained the book. The characters are rich and well thought out and the plot keeps you guessing all the way through to an imaginatively well exacuted showdown. Keep up the great work, I look forward to more of ...

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book. Your writing style reminded me of a fan fiction writer, always adding in tiny details and making things like "Oh, my name is [name that no one would ever name a child] and here is my life story. Oh, d...

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...

SeanSavage: Good plot that moves fairly quickly. Time passage somewhat vague. but not indecipherable. Very good syntax, grammar and punctuation. The story flowed very well, however, the breaks between chapters and the time jumps tended to be slightly confusing at first. I could see where the author was going...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

iann4701: I'm no expert but I know when I have read a good book and this was one. From the beginning it had me wondering where it was going next and what the outcome would be. If you fancy a read with a slightly different perspective from the norm then I would certainly give this book a read. I will look o...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.
