12. Enemy Love
When I woke, it was pitch black. The only light available was from the moon overhead. It took a few minutes for my eyes to finally adjust to the light. Without getting up, I scanned my surroundings and listened for any movement in the woods. Nothing. I slowly got up and tiptoed out into the opening for a better view. I guess all the orcs were sleeping because there was nothing to be seen or breathing to be heard...surprisingly. I slowly pulled myself out of the pit and tiptoed around, trying to find any branches so I could avoid stepping on them. One step at a time it took and eventually I was out of the woods in what seemed like a year. I felt like I couldn't make it. I was so weak. I looked weak too. I was soaked in my own blood and my clothes were ripped to smitherines. I looked like someone who just got in a fight with some mad dog or something. I was hurt bad but that wasn't gonna stop me from reaching Legolas and the dwarves. Just saying his name made me feel like there was hope. That I just had to wait for the right time to get it. I still couldn't believe I wanted to do this. I almost got myself killed for it. Well, I am pretty much killed. I don't think I have very much longer to live. Who knows where everyone else is. Who knows if I'll will ever make it back in time or make it back at all. I checked my wings in the moonlight and flapped them. I could still fly luckily. Suddenly from behind me, I heard a low growling, like it was coming from deep down in someones or somethings chest. A million things started running through my mind like a racecar trying to win a race. I was scared to turn around. I did and didn't want to know what was behind me but I slowly turned around anyways. It was an orc. I swallowed hard. my palms suddenly becoming sweaty and my heart started racing, the orc slowly walked up to me and looked as if he was absorbing my features. He grazed my cheek softly. I started shaking madly. My breaths struggling to come lose. I could feel his soft warm breath on my face. "Precious little girl" He cooed as if he didn't want anyone else to hear what he was saying. He looked into my eyes and game a warm smile. Wait. Was that even possible? An orc having a warm smile? I didn't care at the moment. All I cared about was worrying if I was about to be raped by an orc. "Don't be scared. I'm not going to hurt you." He said softly as he leaned in and tilted his head. I was paralyzed to the bone out of fear. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't move. The orc rested his lips upon mine as he wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled me closer. I looked calm on the outside but on the inside, I was panicking.I pushed him off of me. "What do you think your doing?" I asked him furiously as I wiped my mouth off. "Marking my territory." He said. My stomach did a backflip inside and instantly I felt sick. I shoved him off of me and tried to run. The orc was too fast for me and shoved me into a corner. I was trapped between a rock and him. He started kissing me again, but this time, pulling his claws up by body in the process. I knew I had no other choice. I acted as if I was into it. I grabbed part of his jacket and pulled him to me. The orc gave a chuckle. "Good girllll." He moaned into the kiss. With my other hand, I made my way to my knife and stabbed the orc in the gut. He collapsed onto me and I shoved him off into the dirt.
"I will find you...and when I do...you will be sorry..." I heard the orc growl.
