Adventure

Alexis

Hey there guys! I don't write a lot, warning you ahead of time. I know every chapter will be around 1,000+ words and I have no idea how many chapter there will be in the end. Enjoy!


"I hate you!" the young girl screamed at the top of her lungs as she slammed a door behind her. She ran away from the small house that she called home for so many years of her life. She ran away from the woman left yelling from the doorway that she had just fled from. She ran away, hoping that her life would change. All she ever asked for was a mother that cared and a life that wasn't full of disappointment. All this young girl wanted, was to escape this life of hers that felt like an everlasting hell.

This girl's name was Alexis. She was sixteen and never felt like she truly belonged anywhere. Her father had died when she was only seven years old, but she had never forgotten that day. Sickness had swept through the town like a storm. Most people stayed in their homes, staying safe from the infection, but Alexis's father was a scientist. He wanted to help with a cure, and he did. He was one of the lead scientists in the entire process. But there was one day when he wasn't careful enough when he went to work. It was only 24 hours later that he was gone. He had gone to work and he had never gotten the chance to come home. That's when this world became hell. Alexis's mother became distant after that. She only cared about herself, and even that didn't do her any good. Her mother rarely got up, barely ever went to work, and never took care of her little girl. Alexis soon had to learn to care for herself. She learned how to toughen up, how to stay away from people, and how to fight with her mother. The arguments were always over serious matters though, such as where they would get money and food, but her mother never cared enough to listen. When she was old enough, Alexis got a low paying job at a shop to try to hold them together and it kinda worked. She never got praise for it though. Her mother just stayed distant and stubborn. Finally, one day, Alexis wasn't able to pay that month's rent, and her mother yelled at her for it. This woman that does nothing but sleep and mope around every hour of every day, has the audacity to yell at me, her teenage daughter, for not being able to pay for them both, Alexis thought when the argument started. That's when she decided to run.

Mount Ebbot. My mother would never look for me there, the girl said to herself as she ran for the mountain just east of the city. Luckily it was evening, so there were very few people out on the streets and even then, most of them were to busy or tired to give this fleeing girl a second glance. Once Alexis finally started to reach the outskirts of the city unbothered, she slowed to a calm walk. Let's see what's so special about this mountain anyway. Not like anyone will care if I never come back. She stared at the ground, thinking lonely thoughts. Good, then my mother will actually have to do something in life. If not, then maybe she'll end up the streets where she belongs.

"Hey Alexis!" The upset girl looked up to see a familiar face in front of her. It was the guy that was always hanging around her in school, whether she liked it or not. She had to admit though that it was kind of nice to have someone watch your back sometimes. He was a nice person, and the closest thing that she had to a friend. He was athletic, smart, but also a sixteen year old boy nonetheless. But now was not one of those moments that she wanted him around.
"Go away Louis."
"Why are you all the way out here? You live closer to the center of the city, don't you?"
"Yes, I do. I'm just going out for a jog. Needed some air."
"Want a jogging partner?"
"Nope."
"Too bad. I can tell something's on your mind." The girl rolled her eyes in annoyance, but didn't add anything. "So, where you going?"
"Nowhere," the girl replied blandly.
"Come on. Give me a place. It can be any place in this whole damn city."

" Mount Ebbot."
"What?" The boy was speechless for a moment. He wasn't exactly sure how to respond to such a bold and plain word. Nobody ever went to the mountain. It was almost like a secret law that was always followed. But after a minute, he composed himself and confronted the girl beside him. "What about the legend? You know, how everyone knows that there has never been a person to return from there."
"It's just a tale. Everyone knows it's not even true Louis."
"Fine, then I'm coming with," he stated boldly.
"No. Leave me alone. Go home. Just stay away."
"As a friend once boldly stated, "nope"."
"Shut up before I punch you…" The boy laughed at the girl's response. She scowled in return.
"Come on, we're going together. Nobody wants to go on a walk all alone. Not even an old meany like you."
"I said shut up."
"Yes your highness" Louis stated dramatically with a bow. The two then continued to walk on past the city in silence and eventually started to made their way up to the mountain where the incipient of an unknown journey would make reality take a whole new meaning.
