[Fan Fiction] S.A.L.V.A.T.O.R.E | 8. Run With The Wolves, Chase With A Vampire
With his arms wrapped around me tightly, I kept my face hidden within his shirt. I believed what Jacob had said to me was true, but my own stupid mother’s words kept echoing in my head. I shook my head against his neck, trying to forget what she had said. I didn’t believe her words anymore, but it was still hard to forget them. I trusted Jacob, I really did. But, I didn’t know where that trust came from. I had only known him for just around a month and yet, it was like I had known him for years and years. Like I had known him since we both had been babies. But I knew that wasn’t true nor could it be. He had lived here for all of his life.
With the tears freely flowing down the side of my face, my head rested into his chest as he murmured ‘it’s okay’ into my ear softly every few seconds. I couldn’t believe just how hard things had gotten so quickly and suddenly. It was like everything and everyone was trying to stop us from being together, and yet, a very few amount of people knew we were together. How was this all happening to me? To us? It didn’t seem fair to me.
Abruptly, I noticed Jacob’s breathing almost stopped and he froze against me. I looked up to him, seeing that his eyes were glued to the forest just ahead of us. I could see in his eyes there was something wrong. They had suddenly turned black and piecing in that direction. “What’s going on Jacob?” I whispered into his ear softly with a cracked tone of voice from crying so much.
Slowly he arose to his feet, his arms and hold on me not loosening. “Keep your voice down,” he murmured huskily, almost silent. I leaned against him, turning around so that I could try and see what he was staring at. I couldn’t see anything. It was just all darkness of night and a forest a head and around us. Suddenly the sound of a tree branch been broken came from in front of us. Jacob started slightly shaking less than a millisecond after it. I looked up to him, his jaw was clenched tightly and his breathing soft. Once I looked back to the forest ahead of us, I could saw a faint figure coming out of the shadows. My body instantly froze against Jacob’s. His grip tightened slightly around me, finding and taking my hand into his tightly while taking a step back.
“Well, well, well. If it isn’t Jade and her little pet dog,” Dan humoured darkly. Jacob growled lightly at his words, taking another step back as Dan got closer to us. My entire body was shaking with fear. Even with Jacob here beside me, he couldn’t protect me, himself and fight Dan all at the same time, but who was around to help us? No one! I didn’t see any way out of this for us. There was only one way things could go and I didn’t like it.
