A/N: I'm sorry this is so short. But, anyway, I hope you like it! And even if you don't...please CC. It really means a lot. Of course, I should probably shut up now and get on with the story...so, uh, yeah. Here you go!
The wind whispered in my ears, gentle and calming, yet I knew exactly what was coming. I leaned against the birch tree and closed my eyes, trying to imagine what it would be like to live a perfect life. A life where my only sister wouldn’t be taken away. A life where my story actually ended with and they lived happily ever after.
“Ah, Kathryn,” a man’s voice cooed. I opened my eyes and looked for the speaker. My eyes landed on him—his revolting face, dark clothing, wide, evil beam. “You showed up. I had my doubts about you but—”
“Just take her and leave, you sick creature,” I growled, holding out the sleeping baby girl. My enemy laughed—playful and joyful. Like he was enjoying watching the silent battle rage in my mind.
“Well, fine. But I must say, you’re not any fun!” he teased. I was so tempted to slap him. To kick him where it hurts and just run away.
Tears stung in my eyes, and I choked the words out: “Leave me alone! Go away!” My enemy laughed again and he took the baby from my hands, bundled her up in his own. I forced myself to stand, to say goodbye. I gingerly kissed my sister’s forehead, and whispered, “This is for the best. I’m sorry.”
“I’ll be leaving now, Kathryn,” my enemy said. A burning pain flickered through my body as he pushed me away.
“Don’t hurt her!” I pleaded. “Please don’t hurt her!”
He smiled cruelly, and in a flash of smoky black, was gone.
