Jax--Girl Trapped

"And this is an orphanage, foster home thingy," Gary muttered, indicating towards fairly nice building, "I don't know much about it."

I froze, to say the least. I could sense not one, not two, but three fellow demons near. And, if my sense were correct, a fox, a panther, and a wolf--great. Maybe I wasn't as free as I thought.

"That's nice," I forced an open grin and looked down the street, "Hey! What's that over there?"

"Where? The street's a dead-end."

I already knew that. I was hoping he didn't.

"Oh," I chuckled uneasily, "Sorry I just thought I saw a cat or...something." I needed a plan B, and quick.

Thud. It came from within orphanage, foster home thingy. There was indeed something going on there--something I most certainly did not want to get involved in.

"Well this has been awesome, but I'd better go find my--er--aunt that I'm staying with."

"Wait, what was that?"

"Probably nothing. Could you help me find my way back?"

"Sure."

But it was too late. It was always too late. Sometimes I wondered if my very name meant 'too late.' A flurry of fur rolled out snarling, growling, hissing, roaring, and barking all at once. It was Gary's turn to freeze. Noticing this, I shoved him down the sidewalk, "Run!"

He obeyed--good. I--wham! The fox lunged at me from out of nowhere and knocked me on my back onto the cold, rough pavement and pinned me there. Though I was somewhat dizzy from the impact my head took, there was no mistaking that furry face morphing into one of a demon's.

A girl, judging by the chestnut hair that fell in my face, causing me to splutter. I had been taken down by a girl. And, as if to rub it in, the two other demons came up behind were also girls.

At least they were all easy on the eyes.
