I laughed slightly as I started to come out of hiding but stopped as someone grabbed my hood. I turned around and my heart seemed to thud to a stop, my grip tightened on my staff a well, for the person currently holding my hood, was none other than Pitch Black. My nemesis.
I ripped my hood out of Pitches grasp, and stepped backwards. I put my staff in front of me,- aimed at Pitch- and took a defensive stance.
"What do you want Pitch?" I said between clenched teeth.
He smiled as two NightMares appeared behind him.
"Well, isn't it obvious Jack?" He questioned.
I looked at him questionably.
"Jack?" My heart stopped as I heard Jamie, then footsteps approaching us.
I looked behind me, my eyes widened as Jamie got closer. He finally saw me and a huge smile spread across his face.
"Jack! I've missed you so..." He stops as he saw Pitch and the Mares.
"Jack what's he doing here." His voice was barely audible.
I immediately got in front of Jamie, I wouldn't let anything happen to him. It's my sole duty as a guardian to protect the children.
"It doesn't matter.." I didn't get to finish because Pitch interrupted me.
"You see, little Jamie, I'm here for him." Pitch said as his eyes narrowed on me.
"Me..me? Why?" I cursed myself as I seemed weak.
I'm not afraid of him. I'm not afraid of him. I've beaten him before, I can do it again. I'm not afraid of him. Protect Jamie at all costs. Were the thoughts running through my head. And I wasn't afraid of him. But afraid of letting Jamie down, or not defeating Pitch.
That's what I was afraid of. I couldn't let him, nor the other guardians, down. What would they think of me, then? Would they even still want me as a guardian? I was awoken from my thoughts by NightMares coming towards me and Jamie, time seemed to slow, I brought my staff to the side quickly as ice came out.
"Jamie! Get out of here! Now!" I screamed.
I calmed slightly as I heard his retreating steps, along with several others. Now it was only me, Pitch, and his Mares. I quickly looked behind me as snorts reached my ears. I was surrounded. All hope I had of winning this, plummeted to the ground.
"Give up, Jack. I just want to talk." Pitch said as a sinister smile spread across his face.
"A little help Wind." I mumbled.
I shot straight into the air, mentally thanking Wind. I looked down and saw Pitch flying into the air as well. I looked back up as a black cloud came toward me. My eyes widened in fear as I tried to stop, but I wasn't quick enough. The cloud slammed into my body, with a loud thump. I felt all the air leave my body as I fell back to the earth. I tried to call upon Wind, but I couldn't stop. I angled my body so I wouldn't land head first. 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?
A/N as you can probably tell I don't have a schedule for updating yet. Anywho, what do you think of this chapter yay or nay? I don't really like this chap, I feel like it's not some of my best work :/...
