Ten years ago
My mom and I had just finished making dinner for my dad and us. My dad had been out trying to steal the necessary things that we would need to survive. That's how our life has always been. My mom is a hybrid of Werewolf and Wendigo and my dad is a hybrid of Dragon and Vampire. So guess what that makes me.
Yep you guessed it. I'm all four of those. I have all their strengths and only one weakness per specie. But we are on the run because we aren't allowed to live. None of us are. Hybrids are illegal. I lost my grandparents because of that law. I have been trying to understand why it is like that but my mom always says that I'll understand when I get older.
Well back to what's happening.
My dad just broke through trees. I ran straight for him. "Daddy!" I yelled. Don't judge, I've always been a daddy's girl. "Hey baby girl" my dad said. "What have my ladies been up to?" he asked. "We made dinner" I said and pulled him towards my mom. In that same instance, we all heard a twig snap. My mom and dad immediately snapped their heads up and got ready to fight. "Alice, if I tell you to run then promise me that you will run. You have to survive for all of us. You have to be free for all of us" my mom said to me. "But mommy what's going on?" I asked. I was scared out of my mind. I didn't know what was going on and I didn't want to leave my mom and dad. "Sweetie just promise me that you'll run" my mom said. "I promise" I said scared.
That's when the smell hit me. It was a mix of everything. Smoke, fresh cut grass, decomposition and blood. Immediately I knew what was going on. 'No they found us' I thought to myself. Suddenly we were surrounded by about 20 people. 5 werewolves, 5 vampires, 5 wendigos and 5 dragons. There was no way we were going to get out of this alive.
We stood like that for what felt like hours. Suddenly all of them jump towards us. One of the dragons grabbed me and held me in place while the rest fought my mom and dad. "Please don't hurt my mummy or daddy" I screamed with tears rolling down my cheeks. They were all I had left. I couldn't lose them too. "Shut up freak" the dragon that held me said.
After a short period, they overpowered my mom and dad. The Lieutenants, or at least I think they are, was talking.
I stared at the two wolves that was holding my mother. I tried to see if there was something special about them. One of them had three scars across his face. It looked like claw marks. The other was completely covered in tattoos. I would let the image of their looks burn into my mind so I would be able to find them and avenge my mother.
I then looked over at my dad and the wendigo and vampire that held him. The wendigo had what looked like a birth mark on his neck and a burn mark on the right side of his face. The vampire on the other hand looked like any other vampire. I couldn't see anything to identify him by. That was until my dad tried to get away from him. The sleeve of the jacket got pulled up and I saw what I could only describe as a brand which meant he wasn't born a vampire but was turned. He was owned by someone and I made sure to imprint the brand in my mind so I would be able to find him.
The next moment they ripped my mom and dad's head off. I saw all the blood gush out of their neck. I wanted to scream. I want to kill them all. But I knew there were too many. So I did the only thing I could do, I escaped. I kicked the dragon that was holding me in his balls and ran straight for the forest. I needed to get away as quickly as possible.
I had a promise to keep.
I had to survive.
I had to be free.
I had to do it for my mom and dad.
