Chapter 3

"NO!" I yell. This can't be true. He can't be... I can't believe it, I WON'T believe it.

I collapse on the forest floor, rustling the leaves with my shakes. I hang my head, tears slowly make their way down my face.

"Yes, Dante. It's true. I am your father."

*             *            *

"Why? How?" I stutter. He just looks at me and shakes his head pitying me. He walks towards me slowly and reaches out to me, I stand and walk backwards quickly.

"Dante?" He pleads. I've never seen him like this before.

I run.

I run and run and run. He is probably just waiting until I stop. I don't care though. I keep running. I cast off my brown leather and toss it aside with my sword, I can run faster now.

*        *        *

I don't know how long I've been running. Quite a few minutes I would've thought, but I'm getting tired now. I stop for a breath. Panting, I look up. He's there. Of course he is.
He's always there.

"You're not going to kill me, are you?" I know he won't kill me for sure now I now this.
He shakes his head sadly.
"There is another thing too. As you are my son... You have my powers too."

The End
