The snow crunched under her feet as she stopped for a moment trying to catch her breath. The warm blood of abominations dripped from her arms, staining the white ground beneath her as she stared on. There the temple was, nearly a mile away in all its ruined glory. They had finally made it, the prophet’s ashes would be inside.
She glanced back at her party, the other three seeming to be in the same shape as her. Little droplets of blood scattered around them. She had to keep herself from smirking as she thought of the trail of bread crumbs they had left and the type of creatures that would actually follow such a trail.
A shimmer to her right caught her eye. It was a gong. The golden wonder shimmering in all its splendor…here… in the middle of nowhere. She took several strides right up to it, glaring at its randomness amidst the snow. She couldn’t help herself and before she noticed she had flicked the metal and its song sang throughout the mountains and was shortly followed by a tremendous roar above them.
The sun was blocked by the glittering of red scales flying through the sky above them. It was only moments before she blinked to see the teeth of a dragon clasping down upon her small frame.
“…. F^<#… STUPID GONG!” I nearly throw the controller but am startled by my phone and it’s need to vibrate the hell out of itself in order to get my attention. *text*text*text* “How’s your day, love?” I read and text back “Great! Other than getting eaten by a dragon all thanks to a stupid gong!” I glare at the tv as if it cares before loading my last save.
So, time has finally opened up for me to get back to my real trade. Writing. I have moved, settled in, finished most of my training in my new/old job and have finally been able to take a true minute to breath and have to myself and my imagination.
What’s happened? How did the move go? You, possibly, ask.” The move went smoothly!” I would exclaim if asked. We were done in time for the big college game. I had a lot of help from Brian, his parents and sisters, and my friends Kitt and Jesse. I found out a few things about myself, one being of which that I apparently pack much differently and more organized than most and what’s really necessary. Also found out that even apart from getting rid/throwing away/donating a large quantity of my belongings/junk I have come to the realization that I own a lot of CRAP! We filled, to the brim, a large produce truck about the same size as the largest U-Haul truck with all of my belongings in my tiny one bedroom apartment. I did not think I owned SO MUCH!
Now there were some down falls, literally. I, of course, did my number of trips, falls, crashes, and falling from the sidewalk into the grass with a desk as Kitt semi laughed at me. An old entertainment center that was bought from target and put together back in 2005 went end over end as Jesse pushed it over the lawn to the trash. And Brian had a large three seating couch dropped on his leg UP the stairs. Luckily he was fine and no serious injuries occurred.
What’s happened in the big/little city? Not much different than the big city actually. I’ve been able to meet and make new friends as well as hang out with old friends and play xbox for recreation. I’ve had my “run ins” with the village crazies just as I did in Tempe when I moved there. All in all, I LOVE IT HERE! The people are great and there is a beautiful view. We have mountains here, which is both amazing and wonderful. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to actually go hiking soon before it gets too hot. But in the meantime I’m going to hop right back into my blog and do my best at finishing my book. Hope you all enjoy!
