The Curse

Scifi / Fantasy

Untitled Chapter

I looked at them from a far...

Waiting till the sun was down all the way, taking no chances this time.

I was cocky then and got too many killed...

I stood ready to leap off my ledge, to start my reign of hell.

Outcast-ed for siding with darkness...

They think they knew hell! They know nothing of hell!

My tail whipped around in suspense as the sun dropped its last rays into the horizon.

I let out a roar and leap into the air.

I let my giant wings catch the cool night air and rose up above the ground above the small puny humans.

I watched them as they scurried about on their pathetic patrols.

They had no idea what was coming.

I felt for my daggers at my sides and glided towards the bunker.

He was there....

I saw him with her standing idle at their now small camp.

I had taken out more than half the night before....but they had taken my child...

Not only did they kill my only child but to rub salt in the wound they hung her up at the church.

I could not get to her in time...but they would pay!

I took down my bow and aimed it at his bitch's head...right between the eyes.

I let my arrow fly...

It soared with speed and with a sicking sound it sank into her right eye as she turned!

He sprung to her and looked out my way.

Our eyes met and the hatred flared like a fire to the thicket.

I smiled and tossed my head back and let loose a heart piercing laugh.

Below me the humans gathered to try to kill me once more...

I started chanting and below me the ground shook with the fallen in it.

The dead rose up once more and to kill their brethren for their new master!

As my minions slaughtered the puny troops, I took flight to the bunker.

He saw me coming and grabbed her body and started running.

I could smell his fear and it excited me and I could feel my revenge was near!

He ran till he came to the ledge and was cornered...

He pulled out his knife to which I used my tail to pierce his hand and ripped it off and brought the knife to me.

He struggled now to hold his stump of a hand and the bitch....

He moaned in pain and I delighted in it!

I bared my teeth and claws at him as he did to me.

He looked behind him at the cliff below and I knew his plan.

I quickly summoned the vines to root him to the ground.

In doing so it startled him and he dropped her...

I quickly jumped and caught her and brought her back to face him.

I saw his soul in his eyes fill with fear as I took my finger an put it to her heart.

"No please!" He begged.

I grinned and thrust my finger into her heart.

I filled her with my power and tossed him back his knife and released the vines.

I tossed her down at his feet.

He looked at her in horror...I grinned and laughed.

"Why?" He mumbled.

"So you can know what it feels like to lose the one you love most like I have." I said and flew up.

His beloved was now nothing more than a soulless corpse, the very things he hunted...

I watched as she advanced on him and he pleaded with her to stop.

She lunged and bite his bad arm where I ripped off his hand.

He looked away and stabbed her in the head and cried.

I laughed at him.

He looked up at me with hate.

"ARE YOU HAPPY NOW!" He yelled.

I smiled.

"Now you will know my pain forever..." I said.

His face grew in horror as his arm started to mutate.

"When I mutated her and she bite you that mutation went to you as well...now you will know my full pain of loss and to be hunted as I am, you are to live forever to die forever to live my pain as long as I live." I said and flew off.

I could hear his muffled cries as I flew off into the moonlight an knew I would see him again; but not now... not till we were both ready to die...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

spec4huff: Thank you for creating this world. I am a 6'3" veteran that thinks himself tough. But the piece of literature you have created made me misty eyed on a number of occasions. I want a love like this. Thank you again, I would totally buy this book and hopefully the sequels to this ever enchanting lov...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

themyronus: Vanessa has made 'amazing' the norme. I didn't want to read this as I am waiting for the finished and polished book to come out. But then I decided to read one chapter for kicks...well hours later I finished what was posted. Fortunately, my memory is not to good and I hope I will read the book wi...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Krupa Kataria: the detailing is really awesome ....the characters, ur plots jst too Awsm ,m waiting for the further chapters please do complete it ...like m really craving for those ones ...great job with words too ..please complete the further parts ...
