The End is my Beginning
There are things we wish we could change just to save ourselves some tears. But there are sometimes we wish those actions never existed.
I, I made some mistakes, some mistakes that seemed like simple actions before some time. How can something so simple destroy someone life? I don't know, I still don't.
I was running in the forest through trees and rocks, falling but still running. My heart was punching my chest and my mind was drowing in my thoughts. I could only see the path infront of me and then the thoughts came along making it endless, running but never reaching them.
After what it seemed like an eternity I found the edge of the forest and the begining of a town. The town I was born in was in flames, the trees I used to climb with my ( )other are now nothing but dead life and the lake we used to fish and throw rocks with my sister is now red. And I ask myself what I did wrong, was I not fast enough?I was late?
It didn't take me long to find the causes of the destructions, it was what my father wrote me about, he was in fear that someone was planning to invade our town, I wrote him back and told to stay calm, I would be there in two days. It took me a weak. What my father feared was what I dismissed and now I look in front of me and see it happening.
I can see the dead bodies around me, this one is the bakers', I used to make fun of his crooked leg but my sister loved this guy, she said he is one of the thew hard workers in our town. I never said sorry to him and if I do now what's the point. This is miss Elliona, my teacher in school, I really liked her, she was the only one that never made fun of me but only encourage me to keep being what I want.
Then, I guess, you could say that I felt grief but I couldn't thing about nothing but my people. I runned to the center of the town, where all the kids used to play with each other, now, they are still there but they don't play anymore. I could see them looking at me with a cold and empty look. I knew where I could find them now, I just had to let the road of blood lead me.
It led me to my favourite part of my town, a small open theater, I always liked seeing them sing and dance sometimes I even joined them but that was back at my school days, now it's about to turn in my worst nightmare. They are either there or I'll have to burn the whole place down. I moved near the entry that led me to the main hall that this time it was decorated with soldiers and dead bodies. You don't need to know what I did, I burned them all, all except one, a guy that wore some fancy clother even ny his appearance I knew he wasn't a soldier. I ordered him to show me the bodies, he was not used to taking orders but only giving them.
How could I think of anything else but them, I prayed to someone that listens for the bodies not to be the ones I looked for, I made myself believe that they had time to leave before the soldiers catch them, even if all of the people of the town are here.
The man showed me the body of a man, it was my stepfather, to be honest I felt nothing when I saw him, he was always nothing but a cause of problems in my family. He hated me so did I, he destroyed me and now someone else did the same thing on him. I asked the man to saw me the woman near my stepfather, I knew who she was. She was wearing a ( )acelet I made for her when I was younger, it was made by colourful pebbles I found in the lake.
I didn't want to see her face but my eyes couldn't help it, I looked at her more than I should but I immediately recognised her eyes. The woman I loved the most, the one that raised and the one that never lost my respect and caring. My mother was laying dead, next to her was my oldest ( )other and near him was my father.
My heart stopped punching my chest because it was ( )oken and my mind was peaceful, no more thoughts to drow into. My body was numb, for a second I thought it was a sick dream but then reality kicked in. My sister was not there...
I asked the man where she is but he said he didn't know. I was not in to play some games, I asked him again, same answer. He was useless but not innocent, so I burned his neck off. I had to find her...
I stood there for a moment before I take the road back to the forest. I cried my eyes out, something I had never done before in my life. I promised I won't let them go like that, I will take back our blood and raise our honour.
<( ) />
My sister is probably gone too, I searched for her for months and I still do. I can't change the past but I can build the future. Before some days I joined the Night Watchers, I thought I could find my sister there. Atleast I met some people like me. It was the perfect place a freak like me could find a new home, a place where people won't fear me.
I will find you Megaera, even if I have to loose everything again, even if I have to live the same pain all over again.
