Everything is cold.
Elle shivered and pulled her pink jacket closer about her shoulders. She was huddled
in a small cave deep in the Kakhar Ice Caverns. She buried her face in her
knees. Don’t cry. You’re a big girl. You
can’t cry. She could hear monsters moving around the main corridor of the
cave, and she tried to push herself deeper inside her small cave.
It was a year since Ludger… since Ludger… Well, it had been
a year. It was hard for Gaius and Rowen to leave Rieze Maxia, so everyone
decided to meet at Kanbalar. As they were awaiting Gaius, Rowen, and the
spirits to arrive, word came of unusual monster activity outside the Xalien
Woods. There wasn’t any question, of course they would help! The reports seemed
to indicate some increase number of monsters, but not anything they hadn’t
They were wrong.
Elle brought her knees to her chest as she remember the
monster that awaited them. It was huge… with giant wings and a terrifying roar
sent shivers down Elle’s spine. It was more than any of them expected. It
attacked with such ferocity that it took everyone off guard. Elle could do
nothing as Alvin and Leia were slammed into a large tree, where they slumped to
the ground, not moving. Elize rushed to assist them, but was tossed across the
battlefield like a rag doll. Jude had rushed in front of Elle and, taking a
defensive stance, yelled at her to run.
Elle hesitated, but Jude pushed her and yelled at her to get
away. I need to get help, Elle
thought as she ran in what she hoped was the direction of Kanbalar. Gaius would
be there. Gaius could help.
Before she could make much distance, the monster landed in
front of her, and growled at her menacingly. Elle turned quickly, and ran
blindly into the woods, making her way into the Ice Caverns. She ducked into
the first cave she found.
I need to get help!
Everyone… no one knows where they are!
Elle shook at the thought of encountering that creature again alone.
Footsteps outside her cave shook Elle from her thoughts.
They sounded almost… human.
