Everything was silent, the sounds around me suppressed as I laid there and took in every part of the world at once. I just wanted to sit in an endless world of silence.
A spec of snow fell on top of my nose and my eyes shot open, all of the sounds and smells around me bombarded my senses. It smelt horrible like metal. Explosions and gunshots erupted from everywhere around me. I covered my ears to drown out the sounds around me as I tried to look for a way out of here.
I found myself in a ditch sitting in my thoughts and feelings. The realization hit me.
“What..was my name?” I couldn’t think about that now. I had to get out of here
I looked to my left and found a bag lying next to me in the dirt. I reached for it and opened it up.
I searched through it and inside there was a black cloak, a dagger with some strange markings on it and a white mask with a black pattern and two horns. I grabbed the cloak out of the bag and put it around me, this could help me blend in with the darkness. I then looked up from the ditch to see if there was anywhere I could make an escape through. There was a dark oak forest in the distance not too far from the ditch I was in and if I was fast enough maybe no one would see me leave.
Before I knew it a bullet flew by, I dropped down and heard some men yelling “We need to find her!”, “Go and search that area over there”. I heard a man's foot-steps getting closer and closer to my ditch. I then quickly looked through the bag to take out the dagger feeling the inevitable danger coming towards me. But once my hand came in contact with the dagger my arm went into paralyzing pain. The pain was so excruciating that I could barely move my body. I got a glance at my arm and saw that my veins looked a lot like circuits
I groaned in pain and tried to cover my mouth to stop the sound from escaping the ditch but the man already heard me. He then rushed towards the ditch and found me lying there in pain. He yelled out to inform the others that I was there, then they rushed towards the spot I was in. Before they had the chance to capture me I regained a bit of strength I then grabbed the knife tightly and got up
Before they were able to react I started slashing away. I was able to get two of them before more came after me.
Seeing that I was outnumbered I decided to run towards the forest. The men were not giving up and were right behind me. I knew that once I was in the forest I could hide and take them out easier.
Finally getting to the forest I hid behind an oak tree waiting for the right time to strike. Then there was the moment one of the men came close enough for me to stab him, I lunged at him stabbing him in the neck killing him quickly.
There were more though they started shooting after me. I dodged and climbed up the tree after that I jumped on one of the men stabbing him in the heart, mumbling to myself “One less way more to go” and there were sure more.
Out of nowhere and with no chance for me to react, one of them tackled me. I was able to push him off of me and once I was over him I stabbed him and jumped out of the way of some bullets coming towards me.
While all of this was going on I couldn’t help but wonder how I was able to move like this. It was like I used to do this before. After dodging the bullets I took cover behind a tree. The men ran towards me and decided to not go one by one seeing how fast I took care of the other four. I had to think of something quickly or I would get captured and whatever they want from me surely won’t be good.
Then it hit me. I can take one out by cutting at his ankles and then get the other one while he is down. I got ready for action again and as I predicted there were two coming after me I cut them both down and decided to run again I needed to find a way to escape as there were too many for me to fight alone but as I got ready to leave I felt a chop on the back of my neck and fell down unconscious.
The next thing I know I was in a car cuffed and guarded by four armed men. I struggled through my binds while screaming at the men to let me go. One of them got sick of hearing me yell, took out the pistol and whipped me with it across the face. I then fell unconscious again.
Waiting for what would happen to me..
