I felt the hard blow to my side. "Owch! " I shouted, veering to my left. I grabbed my side, soft thick blood leaking through my fingers. I glanced around me. It had been so stupid of me to think i could last on my own, now I was an open target for him. The next attack was hot and feirce. I ripped at it with my hands, claws replacing fingernails. The blazing punch still hit despite my reckless defense, and it hit my stomach. I lurched forward, trying not to puke. My front was drenched in my liquid blood from this useless battle.
My senses flared but I knew I was doomed. The only escape now would be to run if I could. I started to jolt down the path, fast and silent. My right hand holding my side, my left on my wounded stomach. I should've known running was usless as well when I felt the next hit. The attack drew blood on my back, almost breaking my spine, scorching it with burning heat. The claws ripped at my fragile flesh, and I fell to the ground. I landed in a small puddle of crimson blood that had dripped from my body at my feet. I wanted to screamm but how pointless would that be? I only curled up and hid my face, closing my eyes to the torture of the burnign claws.
"Giving up?" A deep voice asked. Was this my chance? If I gave up, would they spare my life?
"Yes!" I screamed "I give up! I can't run or fight anymore!" A devious laugh rolled through the thundering forest around us. Footsteps circled me. I uncurled my wounded body and rose slowly, no one was in my sighting range. At least until a man walked out from a dark patch in the shadowed trees. He had messy brown hair and a torn white shirt, probablt from my reckless defense. He had blazing wild eyes, full of anxious excitment. The worst part of his presence, though, was he reeked of blood, and his clothes were soaked with it. I gulped, clutching my wounded stomach, what had I done? I'm such an idiot. Of course giving up wouldn't spare my life. It only means I'm letting him kill me without fighting back. I'm pathetic. Even if I escape, these wounds will kill me.
