12. The hunt
I hop over to Meg to get a better look at what she is doing and with one quick glace I see she has craved it into a knife. "It's time." She says. I look her up and down like she just told me that I had two heads. She sees my face and adds "we will fight. We will kill." I leap over to her and shake my head so hard it looks like I'm trying to avoid bees. Meg laughs and I start to think maybe she has gone mad like when we fell from the cave it messed up her head.
She keeps this wicked looking grin on her face that makes me feel uneasy. Is she really going to go though with this? No, she can't. "Meg no." I say and look up at her again. "We can't." She turns her head to the side as if to say why not? "Meg I'm only going say this once. I have a BROKEN leg how am I supposed to hurt!?"
"I can hurt." Meg says like that's the only thing in the world that matters. I left off a heavy sigh that mix in with a grunt. "Let's go!" Then Meg just runs. She just runs away from me. I have a million questions on my mind but right now number one is did she leave me here to die?
This is it I think to myself. This is the perfect weapon and I could just leave Peach here. No I can't Peach is to weak. This is a time to hunt. I whip around and tell Peach that we are leaving. I can't tell even it's the lose of blood or that Peach hates this plan but her face is as pale as paper. I can't wait to get out of here and I don't really want to talk right now. I tell her that it is time again but she shakes her head.
I try to smile at her to make her want to come but I don't think she gets my point because all she says is no. What? I didn't think this would happen I try to keep smiling though I don't know why. Then she points out that she has a broken leg like I had no clue. But I didn't really care or have time for this.
I told her that I could hurt but she still wouldn't listen. Why doesn't she get it? We need to hurt now. Then without thinking I run. I can't wait for Peach and then I stop. How could I? How could I leave Peach like that? I mean to turn around but I can't. I'm already to far gone.
