The Girl and the Naga

Chapter 1

I ran through the lush foliage of the jungle around me, pushing branches out of the way and trying to avoid tripping on the rocks and plants below me. My backpack thumped against my back as I ran, but I wasn't paying attention to it.

How on Earth did I end up in this situation? I thought to myself.

I stole a glance behind me.

At the moment, I was being chased by a huge anaconda. It was catching up to me, and I was panting and completely out of breath, but I couldn't slow down.

I turned back around to keep running, but I tripped on a root and fell to the ground. I quickly turned around and looked behind me, but the snake had almost reached me, and I would never be able to outrun it now. I brought my hands up to cover my face and squeezed my eyes shut as I expected the snake to reach me.

But it never did.

I looked up and saw the anaconda fighting with what appeared to be another snake. But upon closer inspection, I realized it was a person.

The blurry mass of the two fighting was hard to keep track of. I probably should have run, in case the fight didn't go so well for the person, but I was far too mesmerized to think clearly.

The guy won the fight, and the anaconda slithered away.

Now that they snake was gone, I was able to get a good look at the person, or at least from the back. He has medium length blonde hair, and he was tan and very muscular.

My eyes wandered down his body, and that's when I noticed his lower half.

The reason I had thought the anaconda was fighting another snake was because his lower half was a red and orange scaly tail.

I stared at the back of his head, hoping that he wouldn't turn around.

But he did, and when his tiny slitted snake-like pupils locked on me, I finally regained my senses. I scrambled to my feet and continued running through the jungle, fear and adrenaline fueling me with a new energy.

I ran and pushed everything out of my way and jumped over roots and rocks. I could hear the snake guy crashing through the bushes behind me, and a loud hiss ran shivers up my spine, despite the heat of the jungle.

I looked behind me, and could just see him breaking through the trees, maybe 30 feet away from me, far too close for my comfort.

I turned my head back around, only to smack it into a low hanging branch. The force knocked me backwards and onto my stomach.

Immediately, everything became very fuzzy, and the jungle around me began to spin. I tried to lift myself up, but my arms collapsed beneath me. My vision started to cloud and become gray at the edges.

The last thing I saw before I lost consciousness was the snake creature as he towered over me.

Author's Note:

Here is the first chapter of my new story! As the title states, its about a girl and a naga.

There is not a lot of info in this chapter, its just here to gather interest in the story. We won't find out a lot about the characters for the first couple of chapters, but that is done on purpose.

I hope you all will leave a review and be just as supportive for this story as you have been for my Treasure Planet series.

Unlike the Treasure Planet series (which is located on both fanfiction and deviantart), I will not be asking people to draw scenes from the story. That was only for Treasure Planet.

However, if you want to draw a scene from the story, feel free to do so. You don't need to ask me if you want to do it. Just go ahead and do it, then send me a message with a link to the picture.

This story is also available on deviantart.

Leave a review! I can't wait to see who is interested in the story!
