It's been... a very long time since I've been writing here. When this all started because of... well you all know.
It's amazing what will happen in that span. It's a very long span of time.
In that time I learned my father wasn't dead, that he had gone insane, then he came back, and I watched him die.
Like I said before those well... hollowed is what I will call them because most proxies I know have a smidgen of humanity in them. Not these... people. There was nothing left. Nothing but a dark hole and a body to cause pain.
It wasn't so much that they over powered us with strength so much as thtey used their ruthelessness and their numbers against us.
We had to go to the forest. We had to. We all agreed it was a stupid plan but it was the only one. If we had run into any of them we would have died. In the forest there was a chance. A very very small chance but a chance
So we fled there. Dy, my father, and I. They separated us though. Dy managed to ax a few but even their numbers slowed her down. My father was closest to me when I almost ran into it's legs...
That is if I could move when it appeared. Appeared is a bad word. It was more like I was running through the forest one tree after another passing by and then It was there.
Glowering at me.
And my legs had suddenly frozen.
My head began to hurt and I felt blood beginning to run down my face and all of a sudden I felt something warm splash onto my jacket.
Ten I was moving again but my legs weren't carrying me.
I looked down to see my father carrying me along some how still running while being partially evcirated.
He was almost white when we got behind a hill and he fell onto his knees. I held him close as I heard Dy's boots coming up the hill.
"I need you to run now Maggie."
I told him I didn't want to run anymore.
"Please, Maggie. Please. It's alright. Everything's going to be okay."
and I felt the tears on my face cutting through the dried blood. I told him it wasn't going to be okay and he just smiled at me and he said.
"Don't be scared."
I held him close and I told him I loved him and I didn't want him to go.
And he said "Sometimes we all have to go. This is my time, Maggie. I'm so happy now. So happy." and he started getting cold and I could feel it.
He choked a little on the blood.
"It's all so beautiful, Maggie. I love you."
And he was gone.
And I felt Dy tugging at my jacket gently and she pulled me up. She told me we had to go now.
I just sobbed and nodded and we started running again. We made it to a highway and managed to find a cafe where we could get cleaned up and call for someone to get our vehicle.
So now we're just sitting here.
In another hotel room.
With another hole in our lives.
