I was cornered. Stuck in a glitch, unable to move. My body’s rage was persistent, as I attempted to lash out at the one attacking me, but I just couldn’t anymore.
His diamond blue eyes stared down at me with the darkest of intent.
“This is for Dave.”
And with that, I felt the blade come down. Over and over it lashed into my thick skin, drawing out violet-tinted crimson liquid.
The rage subsided.
The pain stopped.
I couldn’t see.
I couldn’t hear.
It was the end.
I woke up, groaning in pain. I had apparently fallen asleep in a small cave of shadows…
…I was dead…
But no, that was just a dream…
But the fear in my gut promised me otherwise.
From now on, I’d have to watch my back…
…And he’d have to watch his.
