60 days to find love

How will I do this when I find the one? Who knows? But I do not plan on going down without a fight. A fight for my freedom, my life

7. Chapter 6

Words could not describe my horror. Darkness surrounded me and a eerie trickling sound was slowly driving me insane. The cold atmosphere forced anxious shivers to rake through my body and my breathing came out ragged and uneven. Words clicked in my mind and I suddenly remembered my mother. The curse. My curse. I could hear the erratic beating of my frantic heart as the sound echoed endlessly.

"Hello darling. Miss me?" The horrible scratchy voice of someone who I dreaded to see. Or hear from for that matter. My eyes started to slowly adjust to the darkness surrounding me but nothing could prepare me for this mentally. Nothing. There she was. The horrible creature staring at me, a sadistic smile etched into the monsters face and eyes shrunken in their sockets, had a emptiness that still clawed at my insides.

"You do remember what I told you, don't you?" How could I ever forget? Even trying to store it in the back of my head like box never to be opened again failed. Her words permanently repeating in my head. Over and over again. "From this day on you have exactly 60 days, no more no less, to find love. True love." She said the last part mockingly, seemingly not believing that love was possible. I stood still as a statue trying to remember the exact consequences that would follow if I failed.

"A raven." She said softly, staring and getting lost in her messed up reality. My names sake. If I were to fail, I would be forever transformed into a raven and kept in a cage for all eternity. Never to escape. I took the time to look around where I was. A cave I think. Standing in the middle, I started to rotate slowly, taking in the hard black sharpness of the rocks that jagged out of the ground. What a horrible place to be. So empty and quiet. Being in it would make anyone uneasy and if you looked for too long, it seemed like the rough, crumbly walks were starting to cave in. At least I wasn't claustrophobic.

Finishing my 360 degree panorama of the cave, I was suddenly thrown back against the rocks. Pain shot through my wrist as it bent at an odd angle and I whimpered loudly. Warm, fat teas streamed down my face as I tried not to scream from the agony I was feeling. I slowly looked up expecting to see an empty cave of nothingness but I was greeted with feathers. Black feathers. Raven feathers.

Trying to stumble up, I was thrown back down again by an invisible force. "You shall not win." Was all I heard before nearly passing out. My head drifted and closing my eyes seemed like a very good idea. No. I shan't yield. I forced myself up but unsurprisingly I was hammered back down, unfortunately landing on my wrist. Excruciating pain grasped at me and I let out a scream of pure torture. Suddenly everything went completely black.

"Raven. Raven wake up. Please Raven wake up." Slowly I began drifting back into consciousness and I could see a bright light ahead of me. Since my consciousness was coming back, I kind of guessed I wasn't dying. My eyes finally fluttered open and started watering due to the bright light. I got my whereabouts and I realised that he was still with me. God I didn't know his name and he was in my room practically in me, his hands still on my shoulders from shaking me awake.

His gorgeousness up close was honestly quite dazzling but I obviously managed to hide is because it would have been really embarrassing him knowing about the effect he had on me. He'll not just on me. Everyone was charmed. " I'm fine." The most cliche thing to say and I just said it. When I looked down I saw my wrist swelling at a rapid rate and I nearly started to hyperventilate. " I'm going to get you ice. Stay here do not move. You hear me Raven? Good. Stay here." All I could do was nod and watch him exit the room. Just as he was about to walk out he turned around and said....

"The name is Ash. Ash Carter."
