The journey begins

Me and Jairo walked through the empty forest, it was peaceful and quiet, yet it was loud also. I didn't know how it seemed loud, but it was, probably because I kept hearing my mother's scream inside my mind which was disturbing and heartbreaking.

I was so unhappy, and my whole entire town were dead because of me. I couldn't bare to look at Jairo, and even when I did he just smiled like he wasn't about to die before and he wasn't injured. A simple and plain smile as both of our feet made the perfect crunch sound on the ground in the forest. I didn't talk. Partially because I couldn't, I struggled so hard not to let my tears just explode from my tear ducts and flow out like a waterfall so quietly that only my sniffles would let Jairo hear and ask me what's wrong.

So I stayed strong, I kept my emotions and feelings to myself, only shown by facial expressions to myself, if I showed it to Jairo he would ask what's wrong.

"Alright, you haven't spoken the whole entire way, what is it?" He asked, pearing up at me through his long, black eyelashes.

"Jairo,both of my parents have just died, I don't think you would be happy if that happened to you." I looked away, ashamed of the words that just tumbled out of my mouth.

"Actually, my parents both died many years ago." He looked up at the greay sky, lightly clearing away from the burnt buildings. It was horrible to look at for me so i don't know how he did it.

"I'm so sorry, the words just...I really am sorry, I didn't mean to, it just hurts so much, and you have been so kind to me. All I have done is moan. It just is repeatedly going around in my head, the agonizing expression on my mothers face...She was the only person I had, my father too. I'm struggeling so much Jairo." The tears managed to escape from my eyes while I quickly wiped them away with the back of my arm.

"It's ok to cry, I did to.And you haven't been mean, I was the selfish one, I didn't stop to think about your loved ones very much. It is horrible, and I'm going to give you as much time as you want to settle this alone. Even if we don't talk for days, you being happy is all that matters."

"Thankyou." The tears replied to his long comforting speech, I didn't wipe them away, I really didn't care. He put his arm around me and rubbed my shoulder gently.

"It's going to be ok,"He whispered into my hair. " It'll be alright."

I wanted to get revenge. I wanted to slice that womans throat apart and all of her 'friends' too. More like foes for me. If I had a list of foes she would be on the very top, if I knew her name that is.

The grey, murky sky had cleared up a little and became a lightly coloured pink fog. The sunlight beamed on the trees,creating a beautiful green colour on the ground. It was magical and impossible to discribe properly. It was addicting to watch.

Me and Jairo walked towards it, smiling at it. He took my hand, it was a light moisture, and his hands were as soft as silk, then we stood in the sunlight and looked into eachothers eyes. We knew that something was going to happen. Something dangerous at the back of our minds creeping up behind us until we turned around and it grabbed us, creating a dramatic, theatrical performance of danger.

But we didn't concentrate on that, we concentrated on what we were going to do, where we were going to go. Everything.

The moment I looked through his long, thick lashes into his dark, navy blue eyes, something hit me.


The End
