Here is a small chapter for the Trial by Tail. Hope we can do this more 😉
Raven entered the Blue Forest through the North Gates. It was dark and eerily quiet, it wasn’t like the forest she knew during Surviving Fairytales.
Raven was the seeded fifth in the School for Evil, which meant she entered the forest just over a hour after the Trial started. She didn’t know who the Ever that entered with her was, her name was Juilet or some stupid Ever name like that. Raven didn’t have the time to obsess over who the Evers were, she had to concentrate on what her game plan would be.
What shall I do? Raven thought to herself. Am I going to hide or am I going to hunt Evers down?
Raven decided to go and hunt down Evers. She was a Never, after all. She had to take the offensive side.
Raven went through the pumpkin patch, hoping that a dead-brained Ever would be there. No such luck. She the tried the daisy field. Raven got there and saw something disappear into the sapphire trees on the other side of the field. She ran quickly through the field to the trees only to see that what she saw was a stymph.
Raven backed up quickly, knowing how stymphs hated Nevers more than how Nevers hated bathrooms.
Raven resumed her search of finding vulnerable Evers. Twice more she thought she saw something that was Ever-like, she was wrong on both accounts.
All through the night, Raven could hear screams, growls, roars, and screeches. Raven expected to see more names disappear of the board, but only a few names extinguished from the fireflies glow.
It was about four hours after Raven entered the Trial when she found a trail of blood. Raven followed the trail, thinking it was a wounded Ever. Raven followed the trail through the Blue Forest, past navy trees, around cornflower rocks, and down indigo paths.
The blood finally ran out near a cliff of rocks that rose a hundred yards into the air. Raven searched all around the cliff but she couldn’t she anymore blood.
When Raven was about to give up, she heard a branch snap behind her. Raven turned around, whipping her dark hair around, to see a pack of wild wolves surround her.
There varied in size, and color. There was a small sand colored one, probably the beta of the pack. There were several grey wolves that looked like they would gladly tear each other apart. There two white wolves that were suspiciously staying behind the pack. But at the head of the pack, a ********* wolf with cold blue eyes glared at her. Raven knew immediately this wolf was the alpha.
Moments passed when the wolf and Raven glared at each other. The other wolves were growing restless, drawing closer and closer to Raven. She kept backing up, never looking away from the black wolf.
Raven took a step back and her knee buckled. She fell, looking away from the alpha. The alpha howled, signaling to its pack members that they could feast.
Wolves bounded towards Raven, teeth and claws glowing white in the moonlight. Raven quickly took off her golden ring on her right hand and flipped it in the air. When it landed in her palm again, it wasn’t a ring anymore, it was a gold bow staff.
When the first wolf got to her, she whacked it hard with her staff, throwing it to the side. The next was shot into the air. Raven hit the wolves on their backs, legs, stomachs, and heads but they all kept coming back. Raven pressed a secret button on the staff and a sharp blade popped out of the bottom of the staff. Raven stabbed several wolves with her spear, aiming for they most vulnerable parts of the body.
All of the wolves backed up a bit, regrouping and circling Raven. She was watching all of them, not taking a chance. Raven had been bitten twice in the leg and three times on her arms, two on her left, one on her right. Her trial cloak was all but gone. When Raven thought the wolves were about to pounce, she remembered the big, black wolf. It wasn’t with the other wolves. It wasn’t on the ground with the dead wolves.
Raven realized this too late. The black wolf jumped from a hidden path on the cliff, ten feet above her head, on to Raven’s back. Raven screamed in pain as the wolf’s teeth dug into her shoulder. Raven was able to grab one of the small daggers inside of her ****** cloak and stab the the wolf in the stomach. The wolf fell off of her back in a ****** heap. It wasn’t getting up and didn’t look like it was breathing.
The others wolves watched with scared eyes to see if their alpha would get up. When it was clear that he was never getting up, the wolves ran with their tails between their legs.
When they left, Raven fell to the ground, pale from the blood lost. She was able to pull the red handkerchief from her boot and throw it to the ground. Raven disappeared with a small pop. She appeared in the Clearing, looking up at the night sky.
Nymphs and teachers rushed to her side, but when they saw what the black wolf did to her shoulder and neck, they new that it was too late. She was bleeding out, Raven knew it. The teachers tried to keep her comfortable and tried to say that everything would be alright.
Raven looked up at them and said her last words to them.
“I…wish…that…I…had…time,” she croaked.
They last thing Raven saw was the constellation of Leo the Lion in the night sky, surrounded by thousands, no, millions of other stars.
Raven died on the ground of the Clearing. She would forever be remembered because the teachers, both Good and Evil, added a new constellation to the sky. One of Raven battling the wolves that took her life.
Raven died looking at the stars, with her gold bow staff in hand…and her true love on her mind.
Sorry if that story was such a let down, I just wanted to do something that was nothing like I have written already. Good night 🙂
That was a fantastic piece of writing, RavenQueen123! The words you used were very descriptive and I could fully imagine the story while I was reading it. I love how you killed Raven, since the heroes and heroines always living isn’t really realistic. 😀
Thanks guys! I used a slightly different writing style for this…short story. I am not usually the kill someone type 😉
