Ally followed closely, keeping an eye out for any enemy soldiers, wether they be from her side, or Rai's.
Rai watched the horizon as he walked. He studied the sun as it came down and almost disapeared behind the horizon. "We should set up camp soon."
"So close to a camp? Areyou sure?"
"No," Rai said, "but as long as we can conceal ourselves and have no fire, then we should be fine. This camp shouldn't be moving around for a few more days."
"Alright. Well, uhh.. i prefer to keep in the trees when I sleep. I feel safer up there." Ally said looking up at the tree tops.
"I prefer to sleep on the ground because when you wake up 20 feet from the ground to find that your tree is on fire... Well, good luck." Rai shrugged.
"Ever heard of par core? I'm sure i could make it to the next tree over and find a way down. I'll be fine." Ally said knudging Rai.
"mmm" Rai shrugged, "whatever. Your choice." He quickly found some materials and arranged them in a mat. Rai lay down and closed his eyes.
Ally tightened the staps of her backpack and quickly made her way up a nearby tree. After finding a decent branch, she pulled a small pillow from her backpack and lay down on the branch, trying to relex, keeping her backpack hanging right by her hand so she can grab her gun if she needs to.
Rai drifted into sleep as the sky darkened. He found himself in a dream. The sky was cloudy and a storm was on it's course of wreaking havoc. Rai was running in a tall grass field. There were two others with him.
"Hurry up Ron," one guy with glasses said.
"Yeah," Ron replied, "but where's Erick?"
"We lost him back in the mud. He'll follow our tracks." Rai anwsered. He tried to see over the tall grass, but it was seven feet high. "Artie, birdcall to alert him to our position."
Artie put his hands over his mouth and did a birdcall. After a few minutes a figure came bursting through, it was Erick. He didn't thank them, instead they all ran crazily.
Rai turned back a saw men chasing them. He cursed. "Run faster!" Just then Ron tripped over. The boys stopped.
"Ron are you okay?" They all shouted.
Rai looked around trying to hear the pursuers. "Dam.nit they're getting closer!"
"Just leave me!" Ron shouted, "I can feel it, my ankle's twisted."
"No," Artie added, "we'll prop you. Hurry." Without waiting for Ron's response Erick and Artie propped Ron up. "Ok, we're good to go."
Rai started running with the slow pace that they were taking. Soon, they jumped out of the grass and hit a dead end. "Cra.p. Turn around. Quickly!"
It was too late. Soldiers with dogs came out of the grass and they were surrounded. The four boys were cornered. In response to that, Artie charged into them. They took out their guns and pumped lead. Rai watched as the bullets flowed through the air and pierced the flesh of Artie.
"Nooooooo!" Rai cried out. He felt furious, sad. Then outraged,Erick charged too and was killed. During that time, Rai had managed to get Ron up. "Come one Ron-" Thunder coursed throughout the world. Rai felt his friend being pulled away from him... His last friend. He watched slowly as red liquid drifted out into the air by his dead friend.
Rai dropped to the ground. Overcome by grief of his friends' deaths. Tears came out of his eyes and all sorts of emotions came out of him. First he felt sad, so sad as if he was dead himself. After that, his sorrow was quenched by something far more deadly. Anger. Breathing heavily, Rai turned around with a look of a beast and lunged towards the soldiers. Lightning flashed. Then Rai opened his eyes to the early morning. He didn't shudder, he didn't cry. He was already long past that.
((Sorry for the long post))
When ally awake she just lay there, perched on the branch not wanting to open her eyes, thinking. Ok, so he's a little cute. He seems upset over something. Maybe something happened to him to make him so cold. I hope it wasn't because of Father. That would be horrible. Ally continued to lay in the tree and think with her eyes closed as long as she could.
((It's fine lol))
Rai took a deep, shaky breath. Then he got up and cleared his bed. After that Rai sat down and leaned against the tree that Ally was sleeping on.
Ally knew Rai was awake. She had heard him moving about on the ground beneath her. When everything got quiet, she bagan to wonder if he had left her or not. Carefully she sat up and opened her eyes, look to theground for Rai.
Rai heard Ally move up in the tree, he looked up as saw Ally looking at him. "Good morning."
"There is a Rogue camp not far from here. I can get us food. My father hasn't put anything out about me going missing. They will think I'm out scouting and doing my fathers will. I will tell them you are with me, they will leave you alone. That alright with you?" Ally asked, she wouldn't do it if he said no.
"Fine by me." Rai said. "Although would you mind if I stay here?"
"I don't mind you staying. May I ask why you want to stay here?" Ally questioned
"I just want to do some routine excersises." Rai anwsered Ally. "I won't leave."
