The sound reverberated throughout the dense forest as her bleeding feet hit the ground.
Somewhere in the distance a birds wail can be heard portraying her hearts turmoil.
But the sound was drowned out in her ears.
The ache in her feet was ignored as she ran. She ran with desperation, to reach him before its too late.
In her desperation she failed to notice the stray root of the great oak sticking out and her foot caught in it making her fall with a yelp on her knees and arms scraping them in the process.
Although she was familiar with pain, she could never get used to it. She ignored the pain as she pushed herself up and took off towards her destination.

Her eyes widened and her breath hitched when she saw the same friend of his turn around and run a sword through his torso.
His eyes widened as he was caught off guard. His back was facing his friend as he trusted him with his life after all.
He turned around and saw her running towards him.
