I ran as fast as my quick legs would carry me, cursing when I tripped, flying into the ground before I knew what was happening.

As I scrambled to get up, I took a quick look around then burst into a sprint once more, the greenery around me blurring past me.

I soon came upon a clearing, and in it, I noticed I had come full circle. There he was, waiting for me. He stalked forward obviously glad that his troubles were coming to an end.

Then he jumped out of nowhere, prepared to fight for both our lives. How had this escalated so quickly?

Oh no, it's happening, I thought as I watched him try to protect me, to save both of us. Just as I knew it would. I closed my eyes and waited for it all to come true.


A/N: I know, I know, it's short, but hey, that's what prefaces are for, right? Yeah I know, I don't like it either, but I'm posting the first and second chapters soon because I'm basically done writing them.

Like it? Hate it? Grammatical errors? Let me know in a friendly (or, you know, not so friendly) review!
