I hit the earth -thankfully landing in a snow dune- with a thud. I laid there as I gasped for air, and felt the coldness of the dune surround me. For a moment everything was peaceful. Then that moment ended as Pitches face appeared above me and he looked.......Worried?
I locked eyes with Pitch and discreetly reached for my staff which thankfully landed within arms reach- I brought it above my head then down forcefully. Ice shot out and struck Pitch in the chest, He flew backwards, and landed somewhere with a thump.
"now Wind!" I shouted.
I felt myself being shot into the air, I angled myself so I was now parallel with the ground. I sort of hovered there for a second, as I searched for Pitch. My heart started to beat faster as I couldn't find him. I let out a scream as something hit my side, it felt like I was being stabbed. I spun out of control, but soon regained control. I faced the direction I had been struck from.
"Tsk tsk Jack, you're letting your emotions cloud your judgement." Pitch said, and I whipped around, still just barely floating.
I breathed in then out, trying to calm, and ease the pain in my side. I felt myself slowly falling to the earth and tried to concentrate on staying afloat. The whole time never breaking eye contact with Pitch. My grip tightened on my staff, and I screamed out as ice shot from the staff. Pitch quickly released some of his sand. And for a moment, we were evenly matched. I felt myself weaken from blood loss. Then thoughts of Jamie, Little Tooth, North, Tooth, Sandy, Bunny, and most of all, my sister filled my brain. At least if I'm gonna die, then I'll die thinking of them. I thought. And as if on cue, the black sand started to overcome my ice. I wasn't strong enough. I pushed harder, but still wasn't strong enough.
"Give up Jack, you're weaker then me. I know your every move, your past. Your sister. Your mom. Your friends. Everything about you, you can't beat me." He said.
I stared at him in shock, how did he know? The only one beside me who knew was Tooth. So how did he find out? I was caught up in my thoughts that I hadn't realized a hoard of NightMares coming up behind me before it was too late and they crashed into me. I felt the air leave me as I was surrounded by darkness. I shot ice all around me trying to make an exit but it was useless. I was trapped. I wasn't going to make it out of this one. Then in a second, the hoard lifted up as one, and crashed down onto me. A pained scream escaped my lips, then wheezing as I couldn't breathe. I tried to call upon wind to fight back, but they were to strong. All to soon my body made contact with hard ground, and the world spun around me. Then slowly faded to dark. I'm sorry. Was the last thought I had before everything went completely black. Pitch Black.
