A Mortal's Fate
Default Chapter: Damien's Sacrifice
Michael Ryan Destrois was born on October 31, in the year of 1254. The
proud Mr. and Mrs. Claudius Destrois looked at their child with much love,
never knowing the fate that awaited their son. Had they known, they would
have taken Michael far, far, away.
The small child was active, and very happy. Yet, as the days went on, many
omens started to appear, and it was whispered that Michael was the child of
the devil. Michael was very close to nature, and he often disappeared for
many hours into he woods that surrounded the small town.
Tongues started to wag when the small boy was seen associating with a
"Dark" child. Or, as the towns folk secretly called them, a spawn of Satan.
Yet, even more dangerous, was the fact that Michael liked to wander off in
the middle of the night, so it was no wonder that the peasants in the small
town were all for having Michael sacrificed to the "Dark People's King".
But that is for later, on, and right now Michael is still young.
* 15 Years After Michael's Birth*
Michael ran down the dusty path, his clothes rustling softly in the wind.
His brown hair which was tightly secured, was being buffeted by the strong
wind. He was nervous, his best friend Damien was going to be sacrificed.
Michael burst through the wicker fence, and stopped in front of his
friend's form. Damien was standing with his face turned to the ground, and
he looked like he was fighting hard not to cry.
Michael opened his mouth, but quickly closed it when he realized that he
had nothing to say that would make this awkward and sad situation better.
Damien finally looked up, and his tear glazed eyes met Michael's.
Michael gasped and took a step backwards, for he was terrified by the dead
look in his friend's eyes.
"I-I guess this is...goodbye. It was nice knowing you, Michael." Damien
said, no emotion whatsoever in his voice. It was only his eyes that
betrayed him, for they mirrored Damien's fear and great sadness.
"No! Don't say that, Damien! I will see you again!" Michael cried, not
wanting to believe that this would be the last time that he saw his best
Damien only shook his head, and softly said, "You know that I am to be
given to the Dark people. You know as well as I do that no one ever returns
Michael violently shook his head, and cried, "You're different, Damien!
You'll come back, I know that you will!"
Damien drew him into a quick, tight embrace. Michael numbly returned the
hug, and before he knew it, the hug was broken by Damien.
He watched as Damien walked down the beaten path, and blinked away tears.
"I-I'll see you soon Damien!" he cried, and only got a half hearted wave in
Even though he wanted to believe he was wrong, Michael was pretty sure that
he would never see his friend again.
