Here we go guys! The prologue! Now it’s a very depressing start, but I assure you it has some cute and funny moments in later posts.
Trees bent and creaked as harsh wind swept across a dark forest. Animals rustled through the fallen leaves, searching for food and shelter. The moon shone bright, sweeping away some of the surrounding darkness. Shadows consumed the small figure slowly walking through a batch of thick trees. Long dark hair seemed to cover the young girl’s delicate appearance. Only one feature shone through the messy tresses. Her bright ruby red eyes seemed to glow in the night, scaring any animals or creatures that happened upon her. Frightened eyes shifted around, scanning the area for something to pop out at her. She slowly walked into a small grassy clearing.
“Mummy? Daddy? Where are you?” Small, calloused fingers clasped together at her chest.
“Daddy? Mummy? Why did you leave me here? I was a good girl. I didn’t do anything bad! I did all my chores! I didn’t talk back! I finished everything on my plate! Why did you leave me here? What did I do?” The little girl continued walking until her foot caught on a root. Yelping, she tumbled down onto the damp grass. Shaking shoulders were seen by a passing squirrel. Sobbing followed soon after.
“Why? What did I do? I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Please come back. Please, I’ll do better. I’ll be the best person ever. Please just come back! Mummy! Daddy!” She curled into a little ball and cried. A drop of rain crashed onto her shaking back. A second. Then it started to pour and she didn’t move. Animals scampered to find shelter, while the girl cried. After what seemed like hours to the tiny child, the sobbing was reduced to hiccups. She sat up and gazed into the sky. The evidence of her tears washed away by the rain.
“Why does everyone hate me? I did everything they said. I was a good girl. Am a good girl. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Please. Just come back, Mummy. I love you. Please Mummy. I swear I’ll do better. You and Daddy won’t have to do a thing. I’ll do everything. Just please don’t throw me away. I’m sorry.” Her head dropped down to look at the wet grass in front of her, hoping for her mother and father to show up.
But no one came. She sat there for hours. Now the rain had stopped and the moon was out. The little girl’s head tilted up, once again, to peer into the black sky. Expressionless eyes followed a passing cloud.
“Where are they? Why did they leave me here? How could they leave me here all alone? They always told me that the forest was dangerous. Did they…Did they do it on purpose? They left me here to die? But why? I didn’t do anything! Why did they leave me here?!” The little girl screamed into the sky. Her once expressionless eyes, glowing with rage. She stood up, hands clenched at her sides.
“I swear I’ll find them. Mummy. Daddy. I’ll find you and ask you. I’ll ask you why you abandoned me. Why you left me to die in this forest. I did everything! I listened to you, even when I thought it was wrong! I’ll find you and make you pay! I swear it! The next time you see me, I’ll kick your butt! I’ll become strong and great! No guards will be able to protect you! You hear me?! I swear it!” She screamed into the knight sky.
Ebony tresses flowed behind her as she pushed on into the forest, not knowing what path lies ahead.
