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.
