Giants and Elves: Journey in The Woods

Vaiola stood at the edge of the cliff. I wanted to reach her and grab her away from there. I wanted to keep her safe. I didn’t want to lose her like how I lost my father but no matter what I do, I just couldn’t move.

“Vaiola…” I called. Her hair danced as she turned and I saw how sad she was when the light of the full moon lit up her face.

She reached out her hands as if trying to reach me. “Come…”

I tried to reach her but still I couldn’t. It was as if I was stuck on the ground. It was odd since all of the things around me seemed to move except for me. “Vaiola…” I called her again, this time, trying hard to push myself towards her but it was hard. I could feel my body being pulled away from her.

Tears fell from her eyes as she tried reaching out for me. “George…”

I couldn’t do anything. It was as if my feet were sliding away.

“George… I’m sorry…” I heard her say before a black cloak rose from the cliff behind her.

“Run…” I yelled at her but it was too late. Englum already had her. With his right arm wrapped on Vaiolas’ neck, he grinned at me before they disappeared on the cliff…
