I sigh, relieved, once their footsteps start to sound farther and farther away, crunching the snow and not even trying to be quiet as they attracted the attention of the close by zombies, and instead of passing by they had fun cutting their heads off or smashing it down with a mace.
It is gruesome and disgusting, but it's hard to say if it was more repulsive than their personalities.
I hold Kira tight to keep her from walking away and marking the ground, staying hidden for longer to confirm that they were far enough for us to safely run away.
I smile. We did it, we really did it! This food will buy us a few more weeks alive, a few more full bellies, and if not for those guys I can finally rest my mind and body a little, until we have to prepare again for the next weeks to come later.
But now I was more at ease, well, until we are farther away that is, so that the cycle would repeat again, over, and over, as it has for the last 3 years, as it will until the last day of our lives.
This is what life has become, never being safe, always moving, always looking for something, trying to survive. I saw once, somewhere, that when you don’t have the basic to survive you do not have time for anything anymore, and they were right; how many times I had been bored to death before, only trying to find a good show to watch and taking for granted my life, ignoring the blessing of a full plate on my table.
Oh, I would kill for a pizza, a burger even, with real meat, bread, God I missed a fresh bread, not the bricks we eat now, almost making me lose my teeth in the process.
Kira keeps walking right beside me, almost making it difficult to walk as my leg keep rasping on her side, but at least I was always aware of where she was without having to look, keeping my gaze on the zombies.
Good thing that the already slow corpses roaming about were slowed down even more by the snow, making very easy to dodge them, if only no Hunters nor Stalkers appear that would be great.
But fearing the worst; as always; I do not waste my time and move on, trying to find some cover from the storm that was due to come anytime if the increasing wind and snow were right.
I was attentive, but I could see nothing as I felt Kira tense beside me, stopping and raising her lips without making a sound, ears back and a fierce gaze upon the wilderness.
I look where her nose was pointing only to see snow and trees, almost hidden in the increasing darkness that was starting to overcome the already grey day.
And yet something was amiss… like some… unnatural rustling of leaves?
Being alone for so long, out here, alert all the time, gave me a good feeling of when something was off, and this was one of those moments.
A movement close by caught my eye, making me turn too late as I was slapped back and threw so fiercely that my body hit the tree, taking the air out of my lungs as my mouth opens like a fish out of the water, only for me to hit face-first the snow, the sudden movement making me dizzy enough not to know if I passed out and neither for how long I was out.
Once I’m able to sit back up I pass the inwards of my clothing in my face trying to take the snow and dirt off, the crescent need to clean it with alcohol makes my fingers twitch, clenching my teeth as I could still feel some moisture over my skin, worst ever in my clothes now.
It was all over me. And I couldn’t take it out.
I take a shaky breath, feeling a disgraceful feeling building up as I try to calm down like I always did, holding my hands against my chest and closing my eyes, focusing on counting my breaths.
That is, until I heard a whimper of pain.
“Kira!” I shout, out of the start of a panic attack quicker than a slash of a whip as I look up and dash in the direction of the sound, almost falling down from doing it so hurriedly.
Shit, my head hurts. What the fuck hit me?
I feel something wet driping down my face and every fiber of my being screamed for me to clean it up but I shut it out and focus my energy and anger to try and find Kira.
No one messes with my fucking dog!
I run up to where I could hear the commotion, but nothing could prepare me for what I saw.
I-it was some kind of monster!
I could barely make out his brown fur as the creature stood tall on his hind legs, body tabby and fit, but what caught my attention was the fact that he was about to hit Kira with his big paw as she cowered away on the side.
“Kira!” I scream, feeling the adrenaline rush mixed with a furious rage build up as I run towards him, acting first without thinking as I hit the back of the creature’s head with my wrench, hearing a dry bang as I swinged furiously down, feeling a numbness spread on my arms with the force of the impact as the weapon ricochets back, leaving a dent on the metal and only making the creature whimper and growl in pain, swinging his arm aimlessly at his back, almost hitting me if the impact hadn’t pushed me out of the way.
For the first time I lock eyes with the beast, the yellow orb livid with a wild glint to it as his saliva dripped of his furry chin, all teeth exposed as he raised his lips, cracking the knuckles of his long fingers, giving me a good view of his claws.
I gulp down. Fuck me.
At that he jumps at me, his strong legs carrying him farther then I thought possible and surprising me as he manages to fall on top of me before I could even turn, my only reaction being putting my only weapon between me and those rows of sharp teeth and keeping my arms stretch to get the creature as far away as possible from my face, making him bite the metal hard as he tried to pull it out of my hand.
That battle didn’t last long as he pinned me down on the snow, his drool covering my hands and falling right next to my face as I try to free one of my legs to push him out, only that he finally used one of his hands to squish mine, making me drop my weapon with a hiss of pain as he hardens his grip on my wrist.
But when I thought things could not get worst… they did.
He holds me down, one big paw-hand on my neck, with enough strength to keep me on the edge of choking and pulls my clothes open ruffianly with the other one, tearing it up and leaving my white milky skin exposed as he passes his long tongue over my neck and shoulder, making me shudder in disgust as he takes it for eagerness and growls at my face, making me stare at one white and one yellow eye as he coated my neck in saliva.
The eyes of a beast, wild, untamed, excited.
I simply stood in shock, unable to move as my mind went in overload and my body shivered nonstop with little spasms here and there as the creature had his way with me.
But far worse was when he turned me around, holding my face against the snow and having my back towards him.
I woke up from the shock as I feel something hard against my thigh, my breath speeding up in irregular sharp intakes as I start to panic, trashing on his hold trying to set myself free, all for naught as the creature was far stronger then I, point proven even more when he brought both my arms up and pinned then down on the snow with only one hand, his iron grip strong and bruising my skin.
I hear howling in the distant, but I was far too out of it to even realize that we had an audience of yellow eyes around us pawing their way on the snow, eager eyes and dripping mouths open, hard members ready.
No, the only thing I felt at that point was the creature on top of me, especially when he brutally pulled my pants down and left my ass exposed.
Oh no, no no NO! S-stop it!
Unable to move an inch anymore, feeling his body pressing against mine as disgust and fear controlled my mind I keep trembling all over, not even noticing the river of tears rolling down my eyes as I could torturously feel every move of his body on mine, his furry chest hopping dry on my back, moving like this even before entering me, too eager to wait as his tongue makes a wet trail on the skin of my shoulder.
Every time his tongue passed the fair skin the wolves around would grow in expectation, some even biting the air from anxiety or caving the snow, eager to replace the creature on my back, even if those did not have a humanoid body but a total wolf form.
Soon pain replaced my senses as the creature behind me bite my shoulder without reservations, his sharp row of teeth piercing the skin and drawing blood as he humped against my leg, making me very aware of his huge hairy member and of his earnest for the unspeakable attack, getting to close to it for comfort.
I just scream in the top of my lungs as I have never before, sobs being engulfed by the agony as my wound burned and worsened as the creature did not let go, instead started licking the blood and shivering with the taste, making the circle of wolves smaller as they were attracted by the smell of blood.
H-how things had turned out this way?
I could not think straight anymore, the shock and the loss of blood, plus the hunger, made me weak as my conscious tried to sweep away to a glorious slumber were none of this would reach me, the only place I could run away from what was about to happen.
And yet I couldn’t, I needed to keep trying to escape from this fate worse than death.
But it wasn’t as if I had a choice on the matter as I could feel the darkness growing over my vision and my eyes unfocused and blurred, tears rolling down every time I blinked, slower as slower until I lost consciousness.
The last thing I heard were whimpers of pain and a fight breaking in, bites and slashes being exchanged as the weight on my back was suddenly removed as my last words escaped my lips before my body went limp:
And I passed out.
Oh boy that was intense… hope you guys enjoyed it! d(>_･ )
