Obviously I dont own anything, i mean who on fan fiction does? I dont own the photo either...whoever made it...its pretty awesome;D
My name is Fionna, I live in a little town in the middle of the Evil Forest named Derjek. It's a small village with only about a few hundred people living in it, it's mostly a farming community. The Land of Aaa is a peaceful place, the last war was The Great Mushroom War several hundred years ago. When the Mushroom War ended, all of the vampire just disappeared, along with the elves and the gnomes All that's left is humans, candy people, lumpy space people, the animals, and plants. The human all live in fear, for we have no special powers to protect us and we mostly produce goods. The Candy Kingdom has some of the best minds in the entire land, and the lumpy space people...well I don't really know what their good at.
I live with my adopted sisters Cake, short for Caroline Jolene Cakelin, she's 22, and my other sister Beatrice Madeline Odin, or BMO for short, she's 11, and my name, well my full name, is Fionna Anne Juster, I'm 15.
We all lived in the same village around 10 years ago. It was a normal winter night, when it happened. Sorcers' Fire. The blue fire consumed everything in its path, taking victims with no mercy, it didn't matter your race, age, or gender, you were a goner. I had been practicing my sword with my father when we came back to the village to see it on fire. My father threw me over his shoulder and ran towards our house, he left me outside while he ran inside to get my mother and baby brother, but it was in vain.
He came back to me ash covering his face, he had my mother over his shoulder and was cradling my brother in his arms, he had a haunted expression on his face that I will remember until the day I die. He had found them in the bedroom and had dragged them out through all of the corpses of the servants.
He ran to me , but he got all of ten feet before things went terribly wrong.
An arrow peirced my father in the heart through his back. Lady Sickle she had hated my father for years, she had believed that her family deserved the crown because my father was the bastard child of the King. Oh yeah did I mention, my family was the royals of the Human race.
She had shot a ice arrow into his heart and the same to my mother and brother. I can still hear her shrill cackle, the feeling of the blood of my family on my skin and clothing, the sight of the blood staining the snow crimson with their life essences. These things will forever haunt my nights for the rest of my days.
She rode her polar bear towards me and jumped off. I stood there doe eyed and unable to move.
"Do you see what you've done here,if you had never been here your parents would still be alive." she sneered at me. I just stood there staring at the crimson bodies of my family, unable to look away.
"LOOK AT ME WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU, YOU LITTLE BASTARD!" she screamed at me, while grabbing my chin with her taloned icy blue nails digging into my skin. I just stared at them, not giving her the slightest of my reared her hand back to slap me when a figure stepped in and grabbed her hand and threw her back.
He, for it was clearly a man, was standing there a black hooded cape flowing around his shoulders, his onyx hair messy from the wind, and his cold eyes the color of the blood that once flowed through my parents veins, his face set into a snarl as he leered over the woman in front of him.
She slowly got up and fixed her eyes on him, her eyes flashing fear before they settled on me with their hatred piercing me to the bones."I'll be back for you." she sneered and disappeared in a flurry of snow.
The man let out an unsteady breath and turned towards me. His eyes were still so hard and cold, but when they settled on me thought they seemed to melt into a black onyx, the same color as his hair and he gave me a timid smile and keeled in front of me.
And that's when I broke, I ran into his surprised arms and bawled my eyes out, I felt his cool arms encircled me and him rest his cheek against my head and whisper 'shhhh' into my ear and patted my blonde locks until I calmed down some, when I did he picked me up and the rest was a blur, I remember finding Cake and BMO hiding inside the horse stables and we salvaged some things from the castle, I found a picture of all of my family together along with my stuffed rabbit, Stifles We grabbed a horse and some traveling supplies along with a shovel and he helped me dig graves for my parents.
I was crying through out the entire time, silent tears flowing down my cheeks and freezing in the bitter cold. When we had placed them inside and covered them back up he placed three large rocks ontop of the and I scratched their names onto them.
"I'm so sorry Fionna, I never wanted this to happen." he said sadly hugging me to his chest.
"It's not your fault, she clearly wanted me." I said and wiped my eyes and glared up at him.
"You caught some of that ehh?" he said and rubbed the back of his head sheepishly.
"Of course, I am old enough to listen and comprehend word you know." I said pointedly.
"'Comprehend'," he quoted "that's a rather large word for a...what, 4...5 year old?" he asked
"What time is it?" I asked him
He looked at me incredibly and looked up at the moon."A little past midnight...why?" he asked.
I sighed."Well then I am now 6." I said "Me and father were suppose to go and pick out a new bow for my birthday, but as you can see that...is...clearly...not...gonna...happen."I said between sobbs, big tears falling down my face as I attempted to wipe them away.
"Awwww." he said and helped me wipe them away. He cradled my face in his cold hands and looked me dead in the face."Here." he said and threw his cloak over me. it dragging several feet onto the ground, seeing as how he was so tall." Happy Birthday Fionna." he said with a smile.
"How do you know my name?" I asked him suddenly curious.
"Because you will become someone very special to me someday." he said with a smile and he kisses my forehead.
"Then how come I don't your name?" I asked him.
He hesitated." Marshal...Marshal Lee." he said hesitantly.
"Ohh..well what did you mean by someone specia-?"I asked but was cut off by a howl in the distance.
"Chimeras." he said suddenly business like and threw me on top of the horse along with Cake and BMO. "Do you know how to ride?" he asked Cake.
She nodded he head.
"Good."he said visibly relieved " I want you to ride and ride until you can't anymore, if I can I'll find you...Okay?" he asked. We nodded.
He Leaned over and kissed my forehead. "See you in 10 years, Fi." He said with a crooked smile.
I reached over and kissed his cheek, not noticing the stunned look on his face "Okay." I said "Be careful." And we rode off, never to see him again.
