A/N: Hey there everyone, these days I have no idea what I want to write so right now Im going to wing it and just go with the flow. Im going the Fire Emblem route right now so hopefully you guys will like it and yea ^_^
Overview: It was madness and every waking minute it never changed. In one day her world turned upside down and simple innocence was replaced by hardening fear and anger. In all of it though will something bloom or will it swallow a once innocent girl before her time?
Prologue: What in the hell have I gotten into!
"Don't let the wench escape!"
"Damn!" Hoping over bushes, I cussed as the thorny vines tore up my legs again, re-opening hour old wounds. Not letting the pain stop me I took off as fast as I could from them, ignoring the long gone modesty that my skirt had provided. You can't care about your underwear showing sometimes if your life is on the line.
"A ha! We found you!"
"Shit!" Stopping short, I pushed off the side of my foot and dodged a barrage of arrows. One of them managed to graze my leg and I had to stop momentarily to bend down and hold it. "Ah..."
"She's injured! Quick! Catch her before she gets away!"
Looking back at them, I wished that I had a tome, bow or hell even a javelin even though I couldn't throw it far. Something to stop these red armored bastards in their tracks for a few moments while I got far enough. But then again, I never thought I'd even be remotely near them or god help me caught up in this madness. Not even a couple of hours ago I was getting out of bed and walking through my hallways of my high school. And now...
"Oh no!" Stopping short, I wound up skidding to the nearest soldier where I was grabbed and hoisted up to my feet. He was able to lift me by my shoulders and carry me to where two other soldiers were waiting. My book bag was thankfully left alone since they didn't know how to un-clip it and they didn't want to risk the chance that I'd get free. "Bastard."
"You do best to watch your tone "girl"."
"Go to hell you rotten assholes!" Slamming my head back, I heard the crack and I was dropped to the ground harshly. Ignoring the stinging sensation in my tail bone, I grabbed the legs of the other two soldiers and yanked as hard as I could. Apparently I had strength I didn't know about or I caught them off guard because they wound up falling over each other onto the ground. "Hah! Suckers." I didn't stick around to gloat because I didn't know how much time I had to get the hell out of there. Taking my opportunity, I dashed off again to leave the injured soldiers to tend to themselves. "I hear water." And sure enough there was a river near by. "Is there a crossing?" Looking around, I heard arrows shooting in the air and pressed myself against a tree to avoid getting hit.
"She's around here somewhere! Spread out and locate her!"
Holding my breath, I waited till those scumbags passed me before letting it out... Only to nearly scream as someone grabbed my arm and pulled me into the nearest body but before it could get out a gloved hand shot out and covered my mouth. Flailing about, I heard the person cuss before pulling me down with them on the ground.
"Calm it down there!"
He hissed at me! Are you seriously kidding me! He has the nerve to say that to me! Biting down on his hand hard, I heard him hiss in pain but bear through it.
"I'm trying to save your life here!"
"Yea, you and what..." I stopped short in my sentence when I heard foot steps stop near us before continuing on. "Uh-oh... Uh..."
"And you were saying?"
I blushed as he helped me up. "Sorry about that umm..."
"Hun?" Looking up, I nearly could have fainted right there from shock.
"My name is Forde, I was out scouting and I happened to see you running away from Grado soldiers. Sorry about the impromptu restraint but there was no other way to make sure you weren't caught."
Standing there stunned, I didn't know what to say so I ran and hugged him. I could tell he was shocked and surprised by my bold move but right now he was the only thing that seemed to be keeping me all together. I felt a gentle hand on my back and I nearly broke down there but I managed to hold back my tears.
I laughed a bit from the tone of his voice, but I was still stunned about what was going on. Grado? Soldiers? Forde saving me? What the hell is going on here?
"Over here Kyle!"
'Kyle?' Looking up I saw the green haired knight himself jogging over to us. He had stopped short and looked immediately at me.
"In all the kings name Forde, what have you done?"
Before he got a full chewing out I stepped in to make sure that didn't happen. "He saved me."
His sharp eyes bore into mine and though I wanted to back down and hide I knew it was going to do nothing for me or Forde at the moment."Sir Forde stepped in and saved me when he saw that I was being pursued by Grado soldiers." I saw him out the corner of my eye smiling and I sent a smile his way knowing that I has his back for saving me.
"Ah, I see... Well you should come with us miss, it's not safe out here for you to be darting threw tree's and bushes."
'No kidding.' But I bit back the comment and instead smiled and started following the two knights. On the outside I appeared to be calm and composed but in truth I wanted to do nothing more but scream and shout. I wasn't supposed to be here and this wasn't right, this was some kind of sick dream that I would wake up from soon and laugh off! But the sharp pain that shot up my leg told me I wasn't dreaming and that this was all real. 'By all blessings of the goddess in this world please help me because you know that I will need it to survive.' I didn't know how much I was going to be repeating those words over the course of this hell hole ridden journey.
A/N: Hopefully I'll do better at this now that I know what I want to do with a Fire Emblem route. Please read and review as always and have a nice day!
