and the hunted
cautiously walked forward to the edge of the tree line. He
motioned for the others to move forward. They saw their prey. A
strange eight legged tiger like beast. It was drinking from a
river directly in front of the small group. Tammy readied a
spear. Theodore motioned for her to throw it and it sailed
straight into the beast. It flew right into its skull. It fell
Francis quickly ran over to it and started to skin it.
Theodore and Tammy slowly approached. Theodore quickly made fire
large enough to cook the meat. They'd been in this strange jungle
for six months now. They were the longest lasting prey. They were
being hunted by something that had no feelings. Tammy used her
wings to prevent the smoke from the fire from spreading in a very
Francis occasionally blew more fire onto their pile of
sticks. They each had special abilities. Theodore could turn
invisible, teleport small distances, and thermal vision when he
closed his eyes. Francis could breathe fire and had super
strength. Tammy had wings and could turn into animals for a short
period of time. That's why they were being hunted.
Two hours later, they were lying in a tree and trying to fall
asleep. They could hear the shouts of our hunter in the distance.
Theodore was on first watch, but nobody could sleep. Theodore
closed his eyes and quietly warned the others. The hunter was
coming and he was very close. Tammy jumped in the air and took
flight. Francis got ready to fight. Theodore turned invisible and
teleported behind him
Theodore pulled out his knife and got ready to stab The
Hunter. He quickly wiped around a smacked him with his plasma
shotgun. Theodore was knocked over. He got ready to shoot
Theodore, but Francis attacked him with a flaming spear. Francis
tackled him, but the hunter stabbed him with a weird mechanical
sword. Blood started to pour out of Francis. He fell over,
Tammy shot arrows down at him. A couple got lodged in his
shoulder. He pulled out a pistol and shot the shit out of her
wings. She fell and landed on her arm. Theodore heard a loud
cracking noise. The Hunter put his shotgun up to her head. He
pulled the trigger and her head exploded. Theodore turned
invisible while he was doing this.
He turned toward him. Theodore quietly started to sneak away.
He threw a knife in his general direction. It hit Theodore's leg
and caused him to become visible. Theodore pulled the knife out
of his leg and drew his own knife. The Hunter drew his mechanical
sword. Theodore started to fight him, but Theodore had a lot of
trouble with his cut leg. Theodore kept using his teleporting
power to avoid The Hunter's attacks.
He eventually knocked both the knives out of Theodore's
hands. He knocked Theodore over and leveled his shotgun at
Theodore. "Fine," Theodore said. "You already killed my friends.
I'm going to bleed to death if I run. Just, grant me one death
wish." "Couldn't hurt," He growled. "Tell me something," Theodore
said. "What kind of heartless jackass could kill like you do?
What the fuck are you?"
He laughed at this. "Same thing you are," he replied. "But, I
thought we were the last humans," Theodore said. "Far from," he
said. Right before he shot Theodore a flash of red light came out
of nowhere and struck the hunter square in the chest. He stood
there for a minute, frozen. He fell over and Theodore knew he was
Theodore turned around and saw a robot holding a blaster. It
motioned for him to follow it. It ran off into the woods.
Considering he had nothing better to do and that his friends were
dead, Theodore ran after it. He took The Hunters shotgun before
he left. For the first time in his life, Theodore felt something
different inside of him. It was hope.
