Chapter 8 – A New Friend

He had heard her scream. Finally, he woke up from his sleep and rushed to her side as she was lying on the ground. Mara had not been wrong. Her pursuers were starving. He stood by her as they drew near. But they could not see him.

They were panting by the time they reached. There was no need for conversation. Glances were exchanged as they were deciding on whom to peel off Mara’s dress. The decision did not take long. The old man who approached Mara was handed the deed.

He rubbed his hands together, itching for the touch of her soft and smooth skin. It had been some time since he had a fresh young body to savage. The hardening part of him ached for Mara. Just as his demanding hand reached for her dress, he felt an intense pain. Someone had punched him fiercely. Unfazed, he attempted for a second time.

Ouch! He was kicked off balance. His followers witnessed the strange sight and took off immediately. Panic gripped his heart. It was after all the 7th Month of the lunar calendar – the Hungry Ghost Festival. His knees dropped to the ground and he apologized profusely and got on his fours. Within a few seconds, he ran off to join his gang.

Left alone with Mara, the mysterious guy appeared out of his hiding. Who is she? What is she doing here? Where are we? Questions flooded his mind. He touched her face lightly. A wave of sorrow overcame him. He had no answer to why he was sad.

“Hey miss, are you ok?” His voice was gentle and kind.

Mara stirred. She opened her eyes and started screaming, punching and kicking him. Her body refused to be violated a second time.

“No, I won’t hurt you. Please stop.” He maintained his composure as he held on to her wrists.

Mara finally ended her struggle. She eyed him warily. Poor girl, she must have been frightened badly, he thought to himself. He smiled at her inquisitive eyes. His smile was warm and friendly.

“Did you save me?” There was a quiver in her voice.

“Yes, I did. They’re gone. You’re safe now.” He had calmed her down with his soothing tone. All her tears started pouring out as she hugged him. His strong arms came around her shoulders. Some part of him knew that Mara needed his embrace. There was no one else for her anymore…
