Running running running
A River flows, like time
Time, the terror of many mortal men
And It always only moves forward, and unsurprisingly it slows for nearly no man
Time has always been my submissive servant
Using my servant, I have been both a deplorable destroyer and kind creator
Doing both, merely on a whim
Arrogantly, I entertained the idiotic idea of being eternal!
After all I believed that I was superior and sat above God and Death!
How wrong I was...
I do not currently comprehend how
However, Time created...something! Its sole purpose to slay me
So Time could be free from its servitude
It was without a doubt, the most hideous and heinous creature imaginable
It resembled a wolf
Much bigger though, at least twice a large as an average one
Like me, it posses the ability to manipulate Time
If I run, it will catch me, no matter when or where
If I fight, no matter how fierce or ferocious I am,
it could truly only slightly delay the inevitable.
All I am able to do is stare
Stare as it slowly and silently stalks towards me
I petition to God for pity
An answer of silence was only given
The Creature growls
Then pounces, baring its sharp silver fangs
I look away, too cowardly to face my deserved demise and stare at the river
Perhaps, I could find reprieve and refuge in it's waters! I glance back at The Creature now mere millimeters from my face!
