Chapter 5 – The Unknown

Chapter 1 – The Making of Alice Chapter 2 – The Deepest Pit Chapter 3 – All That Glitters Chapter 4 – The Hunt   Slowly, Alice became aware of herself being awake. She supposed she should’ve been feeling fear. Pain. Terror. Whispers. Shadows. Anything. But she was just aware. Numb. She couldn’t tell whether it…

Chapter 4 – The Hunt

Alice circled around the buildings, all thoughts of self gone. She was focusing on the people below her. She spotted a young boy with messy jet black hair walking next to an absolute giant of a man. She soared past them, they weren’t her target today. Had they looked up, they would’ve only seen a…

Chapter 3 – All That Glitters

Forcing herself to put one foot in front of the other she made her way to the door. It was mind numbingly slow going. It was the only way Alice knew. Being made to leave her sanctuary – the only place where she couldn’t hurt anyone – was not something she was going to speed…

5 Years Ago

Tectonic Llamas

‘What… What are these things?’ Ollie whispered, his voice shaking, as all his sister could do was gape at these creatures. And what a sight they were, too. Truly worth taking a few seconds out of your life just to be astounded by the wonders of this strange world. Massive, no, absolutely monumental beasts with…
