I speed through the foliage, the only source of light coming from the full moon gazing lonlily from the empty sky. The forest was never known as a welcoming place, even in it's earliest days. Between poison ivy, venomous spiders, and it's other mysteries, it was a place most people avoided. Branches groaned and swayed back and forth in the stiff breeze; shadows flitted across the ground, each one looking more threatening than the last. I can feel the person, no, THING, chasing me; the whoosing wind of barely missing claws against my back, hot, stinking breath scalding my neck.
A strange feeling makes me want to stop, but the animal pursuing me keeps me going. Finally, nerves make me give in. I press my heels onto the ground, skidding to a pause.
All in good time. I feel claws lightly graze my nose. Had I been going just a bit faster, or taken a longer time for me to realize there was something in front of me, I could have lost an eye- or worse.
While inhaling my sigh of relief, caterwauling makes me realize that there is more than one creature. Large, furry creatures with pointed ears and fluffly tails circle me like lions surrounding a antelope foal. I was cornered. I was cornered, by cats- but not your average house kitty. These cats were muscular, large, the biggest nearly surpassing my knees, with glinting amber eyes, long claws, sharp teeth, and the extreme need to kill.
I drew in a breath as I saw the cat I saw yesterday, the black cat with green eyes. Would they really kill me?
"Fuffil." The voice was scratchy and harsh, like acid slowly dissolving a rod of metal. The voice was many, yet it sounded like one. "Fuffil your destiny." The black cat leaped on me. As if that was a signal, the mass of cats swarmed on me. I screamed, but it was drowned out by a slice of a claw. The salty tang of blood filled my mouth, turning my plea for help, my last chance to be found, into a helpless gurgling. There was no way I could be saved now. I shut my eyes and prepared for death.
I jerked up, my clothes clinging onto my body from sweat. I felt my neck. No bite. It was all a dream.
No. It WASN'T just a dream. It was so… so vivid, so real, that it COULDN'T be just a dream, even if I wished it was. It had to be some sort… some sort of vision, a warning, or- if that was even possible- a blessing.
I was still thinking when the clanging of pans that it was morning.
My mother was staring at me through hostile, icy eyes, while her hazel gaze was normally soft and caring, even for people she didn't know that well. She didn't call me over to her, indicating that I didn't do anything wrong- or was too angry to speak with me. I quickly traced back to yesterday. I didn't remember doing anything bad, besides looking at that cat.
That cat. That cat in my dreams. Why my mother never talked of my father and didn't let me get a pet. Suddenly, I was sure, for some reason, cats were tied to the reason of how my father had died.
"Eat your breakfast," my mother snarled, yanking me out of my thoughts. I quickly sat down and ate my breakfast. With a shudder, I realized Tari was frowning at me too. 'What have I done to deserve this? I didn't know the cat was bad, I didn't even want that dream? Why are they shunning me?'
I ran back to my roon, leaving my breakfast, and sobbed into my pillow. My mother didn't come to comfort me, like she usually did.
Something is wrong.
Something is terribly, horribly wrong.
