Branches, mud, wind, earth, leaves and blood. So much blood. The warm liquid flows down my arms from the wrists to the elbow and then drips onto the damp, cold floor. In the distance I hear them already, my pursuers. These monsters! I have to go here. I cut the wound on my joints even deeper with my nails. It is not enough, I need more blood. I want to put an end to this life.
I let my hands glide crossed over my forearms and then interlock the fingers and palms together.
Hold the wish in you and pray. Pray as hard as you can to activate your powers. The powers you curse so much. Use it one last time.
The blood lights up deep red and my body starts to burn. It burns from the inside and causes me a lot of pain. Faster, they are getting closer! I do not want to go back! The burning sensation changes into icy cold and for a brief moment I have disappeared from this world. All my strength has escaped me, now not only the mental, but finally also the physical and magical.
Thankfully, it worked.
With everything that remains with me now, I straighten up and stumble on and on as far as I can. I have to get further away from this hell, far, far away.
Mud covers my feet, almost completely and even shorts and shirt are not as white as they were originally. Despite my situation, a smile flits across my face. I had not noticed it before, but it smells wonderful here. The forest already gives me a sense of freedom and security. How far have I come so far? I do not hear them anymore, so a little relief spreads in me.
I can barely keep my eyes open and therefore hardly notice the houses that stand behind the forest. With my last step I slip the elevation, the city of forest separates and comes lying on the ground. I do not feel the impact because of my blood loss and the pain in my head. Only a few meters left! Trying to sit up fails me and so I try to move my arms to at least move forward.
After a meter, my body succumbs to me and I am now finally black in front of my eyes.
I hope that was enough ...
