Chapter 2: Attacked
Bella slowly walked down the streets of Cardiff . It had been two months now since Edward’s death. That first day she had boarded a train to Milan, where she had stayed for two weeks. After that she had hopped another train to Paris; she hadn’t stayed there too long, there was a reason it was known as the romance capital of the world. All the couples that were so in love only managed to make Bella even more depressed, so not even two days after she had arrived, Bella was once again on a train. From Paris, Bella had gone to London, where she had spent five weeks losing herself in the city life, drowning out reality. When reality had started to intrude, Bella had decided it was time to leave again; this time boarding a train to Cardiff . Which is where she had been for the last week.
The thing Bella hated most about new cities was that she could never remember her way around. She had been wandering for the last hour and still hadn’t managed to find the little hole-in-the-wall apartment she was staying in. She’d gone out to look for a job as she had barely had enough money to make it to Cardiff and rent her tiny apartment and now she couldn't figure out how to get back to said hole-in-the-wall.
Bella jumped as she heard a growl from behind her. Looking around, she tried to find the source of the noise, even as she started walking faster. Her eyes widened as one of the ugliest creatures she had ever seen stepped out of the shadows. It walked upright like a human, but its features were anything but; it had sunken eyes, sharp teeth and a sparse amount of hair on the top of its head. The creature growled again and started running towards Bella. Her eyes widened even further and she spun around with a scream, starting to run as fast as she could. She may not have been all there since Edward’s death, but she didn’t have a death wish of her own…Well, not really…Okay, so she kind of did. But she knew that Edward wouldn’t want that for her, so she was going to at least put up a bit of a fight before giving in. And so she ran.
Bella pushed herself to go faster, even as her legs started to burn. She could hear the creature gaining on her and lengthened her strides, going as fast as she could. She practically flew around a corner into an alley that cut between two buildings, breathing a sigh of relief as she saw an open end to the alley. Racing down the alleyway, she jumped over a bag of garbage as she heard the creature drawing ever closer; its growls making her skin crawl with fear. Bella let out a sharp, shrill scream as she landed wrong, her ankle twisting out from under her with a sharp snap
. She screamed again as she tried to scrabble to her feet, the ankle giving out beneath her.
Bella turned as she heard a low growl close behind her and her eyes widened in fear as the creature came closer and closer. She started to crab-walk away as best and as fast as she could, dragging the foot with the surely-broken ankle. She whimpered as her back hit the alley wall then let out an ear-splitting scream as the creature lunged.
Razor-sharp teeth tore into her throat and her scream cut off with a gurgle, her body flailing uselessly. The last thing she was aware of as her world went black, her body went limp and her breathing stuttered to a halt was the sound of a gunshot and the sudden weight of the creature landing on top of her.~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Okay, I know it’s really short, especially compared to chapter one, but it couldn’t really be helped. I tried to make it longer but it just ended up sounding forced. And no worries; this isn’t the end of the fic!
Please review? They make my day!
