Thanks for the feedback guys ^^ I wrote the 3rd chapter, sorry it's a little late was kind of having writers block >.<; I mean, there's going to be so many characters so there's going to be a lot of stories within the main story but i wanted to hurry up and get Lily to NL so we could get the real story going! And here it is! Hope you all enjoy it like you did the last 2 ^^
Lily took a step back, as if hoping, that would help her escape. Remember what you learned in school. Flight or Fight. Seems kind of unfair that they are attacking with weapons when I have none. Do they think I'm going to use my "hacker powers" to save myself?
"Hey listen! Someone gave me that item! I had no idea what it was for, he just said it'd help me!"
"Yeah, help you get out of trouble and ruin our city!" A female mod with a blue circle around her neck, jabbed her staff at Lily.
"If there's one thing, I hate more then Virus', it's Hackers," a male mod standing next to Mika said. He had deep blue hair, tied in a ponytail in the back with a bright green square dangling from his neck. "Hacker's are so pathetic."
"I'm not a Hacker! I don't even know what one is!" Lily pleaded. "Please! I just want to go home."
Tallion stepped forward, his sword still raised. "I will not tell you again. Come peacefully and I'll let you off with only a few years in prison." His eyes narrowed. "Or would you like to end up as that Virus had? Tom doesn't look kindly on Hackers you know."
Lily's heart was racing, sweat poured from her brow. She looked around for anything or anyone who could save her. She didn't know if she could ever get out of this situation. Tallion took a step forward as she took a step back.
Lily's head jerked up and looked around fiercely for the voice.
Don't stand there gawking! Run!
Lily's heart skipped a beat as she turned her back on them. She didn't know what pulled at her, all that she knew was that she had to escape. Her legs felt as heavy as a ton of bricks as she started to run. She heard Tallion call after her, she felt the heat of blasts around her but she didn't care. She just wanted to go. Adrenalin and pure determination were all that carried her. She was tired from the lack of sleep and food. Her body throbbed and ached. She'd kill to be home right now, even in the Hell Hole with her mother and Mark.
She ran down the beaten path, with Tallion and the other Mods hot on her heels. Her heart stopped for a split second and the voice came back. DODGE!
As the voice faded another replaced it. "PERM BANNED!"
Something, beside her, pulled her to her right and into the forest just as a huge red wave splashed over her. She dove for the bushes and trees, scrapping her leg in the process. She glanced behind her. The spot where she had stood was nothing more then a smoldering crater in the Earth's face. Her eyes were filled with terror. She was still not safe. She picked herself up and continued to run off into the woods, no path to guide her, just her own will to survive.
Mika took a step toward the edge of the path as she watched the figure of Lily disappear into the darkness of the woods.
"No," said Tallion, resting a hand on Mika's shoulder as she went to take a step forward. "She'll be dead before the night’s end. The way she's heading, the Virus's will get to her long before we ever will. It's not worth us risking our lives."
With a heavy heart, Mika nodded and turned her back on the woods with the rest of the Mods as they made their way back down to NC. Up in the trees, hidden by the shadows, the man stood there and looked off into the distance to which Lily had run.
Lily ran. She didn't stop running until her own body made her collapse. She lay there, sprawled on the cool ground, gasping for air. She rolled over onto her back and stared up at the sky. The sun and the moon were doing their evening battle. The blood and energy from both were colliding in the sky to create a beautiful scenery.
Lily sat up on her elbow and looked down at herself. Her clothes were torn from the trees branches. Her knees and palms were scrapped from the dive she took, but she was so tired that only numbness held her close. She was cold and hungry and tired. She lay back down as her eyelids began to grow heavy.
I just want to go home.....please. Someone . . . Anyone...help me.
Lily was awakened by a twitching on her nose. She opened her eyes slowly and glanced up at a small creature with red hair like fire on top her face. She lay there for a second, taking it in, then sat up abruptly and slapped the creature away.
The little creature, no bigger then her foot, flopped down at her feet and bounced slightly. Lily laid there, her eyes opened wide starring at the creature. It stood up and rubbed its head, with a scowl on its face. It had small little hands, no fingers. On its back was a gored with a star on the back of it. He wore mostly brown and his eyes shun with such a bright green, it lite up the night sky. It had a mean look on its face but Lily could tell, it wasn't that much of a threat.
"He...Hey little guy." Lily reached her hand out to pet the thing. It hissed slightly and took off running.
Lily looked around. The moon was high in the sky but it was slowly disappearing. The sun and moon were always in a constant battle, and tonight the sun was winning. The moon sat there with a bite taken out of it, its blood filled the sky with its blackness. She stood and dusted herself off. She was no longer numb, everything about her body ached.
