World Leap Chap16 Part1Night was approaching; the clearing was not far from the campsite, thus the tents were kept intact.
I wandered deep in the bush to change as the dull pain started to gnaw at me. I felt uncomfortable changing near people; it didn't feel right, in fact, I was tempted to run, right there. But
Trust no-one, trust yourself even less, you are alone, as it should be.
But they were the only people I had; I wasn't alone, because of them.
I was worried even as deep as I was in the bushes. Ebony sat just outside the bushes, to explain my absence even though I'd told Sakura I'd be there.
Moonlight streamed through the branches as the mist cleared and I took a step toward the clearing. Then I hesitated. For the first time since I got this curse I felt ashamed of myself. I was a monster, created only to destroy everything that breathed.
I didn't want to fight, I couldn't fight, and I've never fought a human. They'll all shun me!
As I've warned you, run, hide or fight let
World Leap Chap15 Part1I looked down, shied, the most attractive boy I had ever seen was right in front of me; Sasuke, and he had saved my life twice, I wanted to earn his respect, great start Jess.
Naruto was fuming for some unknown reason and Sakura seemed to be repressing several negative emotions behind a forced smile. I quickly turned to Sakura "Thank you" I told her quickly, offering a short bow before picking up the offered sandwich.
I took off my bag and sat by the fire, giving half the warm sandwich to Ebony and ate, glancing around suspiciously: no matter how attractive one of them were any moment they could turn on me, any moment I could die: trust was something they would have to earn.
"What's with that girl and that bird?" Naruto whispered to Sakura.
"Reminds me of Kiba." Sakura whispered back.
"Who is Kiba?" I whispered, joining in on their little chat. They both looked up guiltily.
"He has a canine familiar as a companion; they fight together, inseparable." Sasuke replied, walking over t
World Leap Chap14 Part1Ebony screeched in shock, I didn't know why she was worried, she could fly.
To Eggman I was nothing but a battery to power his plans, but Eggman couldn't use a dead battery so I was going to die for a purpose.
Anyway, if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be here in the first place, in fact I'd be enjoying my excursion, Dark Gaia would never have come and given me this curse.
I would probably, actually be home, with my friends, my family. But I wasn't, I was saving them by what I was doing and maybe I wasn't prepared to die, but that's what the hero does right? They commit the ultimate sacrifice and saved the day.
That's not what you really think is it? What is it? Deep in your soul you're saving them from yourself' aren't you? It whispered; that immediately shocked me out of my thoughts: before before it only spoke to me at night, when I was the wolf too. But during the day?!
I gritted my teeth, holding back the screams that were t
I know now.I'm just sitting around.
Lost in your eyes.
Your presence, your scent.
You shift closer, almost hardly.
And touch my hand with yours.
You stand close to me.
I shower in this ecstasy.
You squeeze my hand.
I squeeze back.
Lost in every word you say.
My heart beats in unison.
With your deep breathing.
I can't see anything else.
When you're next to me.
I like him.
Everything about him.
It races through my mind.
"I love you so much."
He whispers out loud.
I love him.
Everything about him.
How our fingers fit perfectly.
And how I can fly in his presence.
I feel like lead without him there.
I can't breathe straight.
I'm half of myself.
But I understand
I understand everything.
World Leap Chap13 Part1As Ebony tried not to fall off her perch while laughing wildly, I tore through the clothes in the closet, thrusting the ones I didn't like on my bed or in the middle of the floor.
From the thousands of clothes jammed in the small closet, only a loose, long sleeve cloak, a skivvy and long pants was left as well as my previous clothes: A torn hot pink top I never liked much and navy blue track pants.
I kept the good clothes in a neat pile and grabbed one of the leather crap heaps, throwing it on top, hiding my book underneath also before ruffling through the small mini fridge in one corner, next to a large TV and a computer desk, I noticed a small camera above the TV and quickly splashed the remains from the Chun-Nan water on it until it sparked.
I spun around with a strong sense of accomplishment, I did something, just a small thing, but something. And it made me feel good.
Ebony was looking at me strangely and I came to sit on my bed.
"Thank you." I whispered solemnly.
She cocked her h
World Leap Chap12 Part1His lips grazed mine before he stepped back: "You'll have to leave you know." He whispered.
I sighed: "Yes I know." He held me to his chest as I started to cry. "But I don't want too."
"I know but he's too strong right now, even for me and-"
"Yes, I know, you need to get stronger, so you can avenge their deaths."
"I'm sorry." I reached up and kissed him on the cheek, tears still running down mine.
"Don't be, I'll return home I'll finally have my normal life and everything will be fine. Maybe I'll even find a way to get rid of "
"Maybe when he's dead I will go."
"Maybe " I looked up at him, hope colouring my eyes. "I'll be safe, don't worry."
"I love you Mizuki An'ya."
"I love you too."
We were falling, happily entwined.
We were dying, together we were blind.
The sound echoed through my empty thoughts, making me feel dizzy. Did it beep in hell? Because I was pretty sure that was where I was.
World Leap Chap11 Part1Paws were never the best for opening doors and Eggman had kindly replaced his windows with a slightly harder to break glass, so I kindly took the message and destroyed the door instead. Much to the surprise of the robot standing behind, who seemed to be trying to open the door: just as I stepped in he pressed a button raising the tattered remains of the metal frame.
I ignored its stares as I ran past, needing only a few sniffs to follow Eggman's pungent odour.
I slowed to a trot as I entered the room he was in, the main room: arguing with a robot over the progress of control over Dark Gaia. It ended with a short mention of the Chaos emeralds before Eggman started cackling wildly.
I sighed: raking the newly fixed power box with razor sharp claws to bring him from his fantasies. It worked: much to my delight. There was a muffled grunt as Eggman fumbled for a switch before a new set of lights from presumably a backup power supply flickered on.
He turned towards me, face red, moustache bri
World Leap Part1 Chap10I stayed hidden, out of sight. Ebony had hopped off to search for food and find out about Sonic's location and had not yet returned. The moon was still high and my tail flickered like flame
I left the alley; made of red wooden walls reeking of old noodles and other various Chinese foods, and stalked into an empty courtyard.
'Here seems good,' I thought, striding into the centre. The area around me bubbled. Deformed beasts came out of the ground and I howled; egging them on. They howled with me, forming a circle around me; waiting.
My tail twitched gently. "Stir up some trouble. Cause some chaos and hunt down the blue hedgehog." The beast inside whispered. One bowed. It seemed to be the leader of the large platoon.
I twitched my tail again and a harsh wind blew through the clearing. They blew away like smoke, leaving nothing behind but a memory.
I turned without a second glance back, I did not doubt that they wouldn't attack me. The beast and I: We, were just an extension of their god o
