Chapter 1: Dream?
Running so fast and long her legs were about to give in. Why was she running? Where was she? What was she doing? Well, next to running that is.
She aw glimpses of herself. Those were not her regular clothes. That was not how she wore her hair. What was happening? What in the world-
Bam! Lose track of your legs for a second and you fall. She tried to get up again, only to notice that her hands are bruised and bloody and probably broken too. But she was in good health last time she checked. Or was she? This was all so confusing.
There were footsteps. People coming for her. She felt panic rising in her chest, but why? Wasn’t it good that there were people coming now she couldn’t run any further?
Or was she running from them.
Which one it was didn’t matter when the footsteps came horrible close. She felt warmth. What was it? She tried to look around, but her attention went to a pair of legs in front of her very quickly.
Managing to look up, she saw a pair of bright, glowing eyes looking at her. And a smirk. Why… Did this feel so familiar?
No time to think about it, the person in front of her grabbed her left arm and pulled her up. It hurt, it hurt like hell. But the smirk stayed. “Got you now, witch!”
And then she noticed the warmth around her came from torches.
Hikaru wake up bathing in sweat. What… What did just happen? A dream. It was a nightmare. She sighed and sat up. Someone knocked on the door. It was her brother, who else could it be? “Is something wrong sis? I heard you moaning.” Hikaru smiled a little, Haruki always was nice to her. “Just a bad dream, nothing to worry about.”, she told him. “I’m going to take a shower.” Haruki hummed in agreement and she heard him walk back to his own room. She got up, rubbing her eyes.
Her hands were bruised. Bloody. Probably broken too.
And she screamed.
