15. This isn't Paradise, It's Purgatory (pt 2)


“Help!” I screamed at the top of my lungs, rushing to reach the man.

His head snapped towards my direction as I continued to run towards the clearing. The creature howled behind me, he was getting closer to me. I burst from the darkness into the clearing, running full speed at the man in front of me. I realized it was Christian.

“Hurry!” Christian bellowed. 

He was suddenly in front of me giving me no time to stop myself causing me to collided with him, falling to the ground. I didn’t even see him move, he was too fast. Fast like a bullet, I only saw a blur before my mind had time to stop my body. When I smashed into him, the force knocked me off my feet it was as if I ran into a brick wall. The pain knocked the wind out of me and I couldn’t breath. I hit the ground hard, the last image I saw was Christian’s pale face hovering above me, the creature appearing a couple of feet behind him. I opened my mouth to warn him about the creature, when he whipped around swiftly. A snarl erupted from Christian who suddenly sprung into a crouch facing the animal. The creature stood its ground, ready to fight. Christian leapt into the air as if he had bouncy springs in his shoes and landed right on top of the animal, scratching and trying to control the beast. 

I sat up, transfixed and unable to move. The creature threw Christian off of its back and jumped on him snarling in his face. Christian grabbed the creature by the snout, holding him off from biting off his face. I jumped up, adrenaline pulsed through me and I reached for my flare gun. I aimed it at the creature and fired, I missed the shot and the creature turned its attention on me. 

"Run Madison!" Christian commanded.

I threw the flare gun at the beast, hitting it in the head and ran off into the woods. I kept running, desperate to keep the creature attention on me and lead it away from Christian. The beast took after me, and I ran into the darkness once again being attacked by the many branches hitting me in the face. My legs protested and burned but I kept on running until I tripped on a vine and fell. My head hit the sharp edge of a rock, and I felt the blood gush out of my head and colored dots filled my vision. I let out a yelp, and turned around to see the creature stare at me. Tears fell down my face as I struggled to crawl away from the animal, the animal stalked me knowing that I was unable to get away. I struggled to keep my eyes open and keep conscious.

The animal crouched once more, ready to finish me off but it never got a chance to pounce, once again Christian launched himself on top of the animal. I cried in relief but now in more fear for his life. Christian snarled as the animal tried to shake him off, this time he was no match for Christian. Christian lifted the animal up by the scruff of its neck and fling it into a tree. The animal hit the tree hard, and stood up stunned by the impact of the hit. It stared at me once again, then ran off into the darkness. All my strength left me as I tried to process what I'd seen, my eyes closed as I saw Christian lean over me. I finally have gone completely crazy was my last thought before I passed out.
