So much blood...
Fires danced around me as our small village was burning to the ground. People Were running around frantically trying to escape the carnage, running into the forests only to be torn apart by the creatures attacking us.
I watched as men struggled to fight back against the monsters that were killing everyone on sight.
Massive wolves nearly as big as horse's were tearing apart men and women alike. Limbs were being ripped from their bodies and throats were being torn into.
All I could do was stand there, paralyzed in fear as the people I grew up with were screaming, fighting, and running for their lives. Even our warriors who were trained to kill beasts like these stood no chance.
The night was shrouded with smoke as fires raged across each building. Blood soaked the grounds as both man and monster alike were slaughtered.
Why was this happening? So many were dying on both sides...what was the point to all this bloodshed? I wish I knew...
"Seraphina!!" I looked around for the voice calling my name, and soon enough I saw my father killing off one of the giant beasts running rampant through our home. He pulled his bloodied blade from the beast's neck and started to run towards me.
I could feel tears prick the corners of my eyes. I was scared....no...terrified... I didnt want to be here anymore!
A deep growl had me looking away as a much larger wolf came out of the smokey ruins of the house across from me. Blood soaked his fur and covered his face. In his maw of sharp teeth, I could see a human arm that was detached from the owners body.
I froze in complete horror as it dropped the limp limb and stepped towards me, with its lips pulled back in a snarl. It's glowing yellow eyes were focused solely on me. The monster before me then stood up on it's hind legs. A strange necklace around the things neck stood out in the night, and a silver pendant with a ruby as red as the blood in it's fur.
I could faintly hear my father shouting my name, and the sounds of a struggle but I didnt dare look away, it was almost as if I knew, if I turned away from the monster in front of me, if my eyes strayed from his then I would die...
It walked closer snarling down at me. As I stood there paralyzed by fear. my heart was ready to beat out of my chest and my breathing quicked. I watched as its muscles tensed and it lunged towards me.
I squeezed my eyes shut and covered my head with my arms before turning away. A sharp pain raked across my back and I fell face-first into the ground. The sound of a heavy chain and a Startled yelp could be heard and I opened my eyes to see my father standing before me with a silver chain around the wolf's neck.
I could hear the sizzle as it burned into the creature's skin. It thrashed around snarling and pounced on my father, knocking him to the ground. I shakily sat up and watched, still in complete shock.
My father lost his grip on the chain and with it loosened the wolf took the chance to slip free and attack.
