The pain was slowing me down, as if a lightening stroke was constantly hitting every joint of my body. My mind was on fire, as if a volcano is about erupt from it……. but i could not stop running…. i had to reach there ….i had to save her … because now they had found what they had been looking for all their lives …. they were finally onto fulfilling the purpose for what they had been born for …. and so i kept running , neglecting away the pain flowing throughout my body like waves in a turmoil ocean … avoiding the heavy bushes …. skipping and breaking away the branches hurdling in my path …for i had to reach …. before they could ….. she must have been waiting for me …. saving her could be my only redemption ….for it was me that made her face this day …. the guilt was eating the insides of me …. so i had to run and run and run …till my last breath … but as people say the worst follows the worse, i had no idea that my fate was about to be decided. …. for i was now followed … by the beasts ..wilder than any animal … deadly than any death …. i could feel the anger , the hunger and the hatred with which these beasts were running after me … now i had to run not only to save her …but to save myself too …. for my own existence would guarantee her’s … I was hopeful that today would be the decisive day ….but the luck was not on my side ….for now the beasts were standing right ahead of me, blocking my path ….. so i had to skid and eventually slip towards them because now i was fully surrounded … no where to run ….no where to hide …. the beasts had some last words to talk to me … some last questions to ask of me …so they did not immediately attacked me …. they restored themselves to their original human form …. turning back into the decent of all the creatures ever born …
“Tell us where she is”, one of them asked me. “I don’t know, please let me go”, I replied. Another man spoke,” Listen boy, its better you tell us. We cant let a threat live among us”, another man continued, “if you don’t, then we are afraid that you become a threat to us too”. I remained silent and then cried, “You were always wrong. I have seen it with my own eyes. I cant understand why you put the blame away when we ourselves are the worst animals of all. The agony i am going through, cant you just see that; instead you all are overburdening me, burning me from inside. Its better you let me go for now,please i beg you”. “Not until you tell us where she is”,they answered. “I wont betray her”, I replied. “In that case, we are helpless”, after this reply suddenly those men were replaced by what seemed like overgrown dogs, wild enough to swallow anyone within a single bite. All of a sudden, the dogs jumped and then i heard myself screaming in my last agony.
I laid there for how much time i had no clue …. as if the pain was forever … the wounds were spitting out fountains of blood …. every breath of mine was taking away the fragments of my life and my soul … for i knew i had failed … and my time had come ……at least i had my senses …for i could sense the pain ….i could feel the air filled with smoke …..i could sense the touch of the ground and i could still hear the distant voices crying in gratitude ….
Oh Dear Lord, Grant Us The Forgiveness
For We Offer The Blood , O Promisee
Oh Dear Lord, Grant Us The Courage
For Hate Stood By, He Didn’t Flee
Oh Dear Lord, Save Us From Betrayal
For Love Was Too Fragile To Outsee
Oh Dear Lord, Defend For Our Fate
For Balance Was Cruel On Decree
Oh Dear Lord, We Are Honored
For Beyond Life & Death, We Live By Thee
Silence had fallen and my mind was going hazy. I waited for my eyes to go blank and then came the last breath out of me ………
And here i was ….back again … same forest …same pain …same destination …same threat. Those chains had revived in me the deepest and darkest of my memories. My mind could have restored much more but right now, i had to run ….i should not be delayed now ….for this time, i had no followers …. i could see no beasts chasing to rip me off …i was definitely going to save her this time …i could reach before they would set fire to the mansion ….and so I held my breath and kept running ….dealing away with agonising pain the wounds were giving me.
The forest stretched itself over to a hill at the other side of which lied her mansion … the mansion where it all began… the mansion i was brought to tonight…. the mansion they all were out to set fire to … for they now knew that she dwell somewhere inside … In the meantime, i was now on the top of the hill. From that point i could see a sea, so dark and calm as if it was non-existent, stretching to the point my eyes could not reach. Another thought struck my mind, i had been for quite some time in the same mansion tonight but could not notice the sea at all ..strange it was …for the sea itself seemed to be hidden and quiet.
The bushes and the branches had given me enough bruises to fall…but i had more important thing to take care of … so i ran down the hill, only to get myself slipped and rolled down to the its foot where lied my destination …. among all these happenings, i could only sense the silence …hence they did not make it before me … i finally had this chance to make all the wrongs, right. With this feeling, i stood off the ground, rolling my head around in search of the mansion …in the dark behind me, i spotted some walls. Fighting through the forest again, i moved closer to the walls. After finally reaching there, i wished that i should not have bore the pain of seeking it. For instead of the mansion, stood its dead ruins from the time immemorial ….
