The Wolverine's Growl [Wolverine RP/Closed]

Postby Stanmore on Tue Sep 08, 2009 8:02 pm

The Canadian wilderness is a dangerous place. There are monsterous creatures, with watching eyes, waiting to pounce. They snarl behind thick leaves and the shadows of the trees. They don't show themselves until it is too late. Too late to run, or retreat. Too late to call for help. And there is one monster in this forest that has claws. Claws that will tear you apart with ease, that will spill your blood as a warning to others. Do not come through here, it warns.

No one ever listens. They close their eyes to the warning signs, the flashing red stains are ignored. Fences are climbed, barricades are scaled. This month, the forest has been responsible for three deaths. And there is more to come. A black sedan comes along the dirt path, it sends small stones upwards, hitting against the paint. The tyres struggle to grip the road properly, yet it remains at its quick speed. The accelerator is pushed against the carpet of the floor, the man's other foot staying away from the brake.

"I told you, slow down! They're not following us anymore, they stopped when we reached the forest. Take your foot off the gas, Daniel!" It appears as if the voice in the passenger seat is disobeyed for a brief moment, but the vehicle gently crawls to a halt. The natural barricade of a tree the reason.

Daniel slams his palm against the leather of the steering wheel and exits the sedan in anger. "I'm not going back that way either. We're gonna have to go by foot, Matt. Longer we stand here, the quicker those cops will catch us." He walks towards the trunk and clicks the lock open, looking down at the woman struggling in the rope around her wrists. "We're walking. As soon as we get out of this forest, we'll let you go. That's if you play nice."

The sound of gritting gravel and the engine revving was the only clue as to the outside world for Eva as she was full of fear. Never before had she thought that she would've been kidnapped and now that she had been, she was terrified for her life. She knew she was different, but she never thought that it would lead to kidnapping. She had kept her, secret, hidden from everyone that she hadn't thought anyone would've picked up on it.

But they had, and here she was, locked up tightly in a trunk. She had no idea where they were taking her, but as the police sirens had died down, she had a few guesses as to where and none of them were very exciting.

For the passed while now she had been trying to free her hands from the rope, but it only succeeded it burning them and now her wrists stung terribly. She wished that this would all end, and before she knew it the vehicle had stopped. Her eyes squinted against the sudden light as her captors open the trunk and pulled her hastily from it. She groaned as her wrists hurt even more and the fear was burning through her veins as she stared at him horrified.

"Please, let me go," she whispered, but the gag in her mouth prevented it from sounding like anything but garbled words.

As she looked around she wanted to pass out once she saw where they were. The vasy forest that had given itself a knew name. Hell's Grove. Of course it was so much bigger than a grove of trees, but everyone knew that only one thing lived there. Death. That was why she was so terrified for her life. She'd rather had them murder her now than find out what lived in the trees that had caused so much death.

"Daniel, take her damn gag off."

Daniel did as he was asked, and removed the stuffing in her mouth, allowing the woman to speak with audible words for a change. "Now what were you saying? Did that sound like you wanted to stay here with us, and keep walking? I thought so. A wise choice, Miss-what-ever-your-name-is." It had occured to Daniel that although they had nabbed someone and thrown them in to the trunk, they had little-to-no-idea about them. Her name, her age, why she was even there at that same moment.

What ever the case, she was now with them. In this forest, which Daniel and Matt had never been to before in their lives. The trees seemed to create a wall around the roads and paths, darkening the flooring and allowing little light down between the green leaves. They swayed in practised motion from side to side, creating small whistles as they moved.

While Daniel held on to the woman tightly, Matt walked forward a few paces and attempted to move the fallen trunk, but it was no use. They had to walk, no other way about it. Grabbing the backpack and slinging it over both shoulders, he reached in to the trunk and pulled out the flashlight, checking to see that it still worked. "Okay, this forest shouldn't be too big. We just follow this path, it'll take us out the other side."

Eva was shaking slightly as she stared at them in fear. She felt the horrid gag taken from her mouth and she sighed with relief. It was good to have it gone, but she was terrified to say anything to them now. They could do basically anything they wanted to her, she wasn't strong enough to fight back and now she wished desperately that this was a horrible dream or they would at least kill her all ready.

She looked around at the trees in fear as they loomed over them. To her kidnappers it probably just sounded like any trees would, but it sent chills down Eva's spine. She had heard enough stories to have never come close to the first warning sign. Now she was close to the heart of it and she could practically feel death sneaking up on them. She was about ready to faint from her fears when the one who seemed to be in charge said that it shouldn't be to big.

"You don't know this place, do you?" she asked in a quiet tone. "Only death lives here, how could you ignore the facts?" she didn't want to anger as she just was telling the truth of the place. "Please, for your own safety, we have to leave. This forest goes on for miles...and there is a demon that lives here." Eva was trying to give them warning, but she knew they would never go for it.

"We have to leave? What do you think we're doing, hen? We're walking along this path, to the exit. So it goes on for a couple of miles, rather a couple of miles a free man than walking back that way with hands held out for the handcuffs to go around them." Matt was insisting on going straight on, and it appeared that nothing was going to change his thought of mind. "A demon? What the hell are you talking about? Did a tiger escape from the zoo and run off in here? Don't worry, I have a gun. Your night in shining armour won't let a big cat touch you. If it comes looking for something to eat... then we'll just put it out of its misery, won't we Dan?"

He shook his head and moved on further in to the darkness. The flashlight danced ahead of them, the beam darting from corner to corner and not missing any part of the darkness. The road ahead seemed to get narrower, almost becoming no wider than a metre. Large rocks protruded at either side, and for a moment, the trees seemed to grow thicker and create weird shapes. There was a small body of water to their right, a few fish were swimming unaware of the humans above them. But something startled Matt. At the bottom of the water, something became clear when the torch pointed its nose downwards. Something horrible.

"Is that... is that a body?" He asked, turning to Daniel. "Is that what I think it-"

The man was cut off by a strange noise. A growl. His hands suddenly trembled, letting go of the girl for a few moments, giving her time to probably run. "Did you hear that? That was a fucking loud roar, Matt."

Eva felt despair as she wasn't paid any heed. She knew that she was walking to her death, and that scared her. She'd rather have walked across miles of scorching sand barefooted with no water than to walk forward in the dark forest. She shook her head slightly as they continued to walk. "You don't understand, people die here," she whispered with a frightened reverence for the place. Anyone who hung around in the surrounding towns long enough would hear of a disappearence sooner or later. She jumped every time a foreign sound hit her ears. Eva was starting to get the feeling that they had no idea who she was...let alone what she could do. If they had known, then they probably would be treating her differently. So was she just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Either way, she wished they hadn't snatched her.

After a little bit she could feel the color draining from her face as the man with the flashlight stopped and spoke. Eva looked over his shoulder and could feel ready to lose her stomach as she saw the body. She jumped rather high as there was a roar close by. She could've run, but they had said they had a gun and she knew that if she had any chance, she should stay with them despite who they were and the fact that they had kidnapped her. She couldn't help but make a smart remark towards what he had said.

"It's just a cat." She sneered as she narrowed her eyes. "I thought you were tough, what harm can a little kitty do to such a strong man like you." She snapped slightly but had a feeling that this wasn't good. Eva stepped away from them as her skin crawled. She didn't like what she was feeling. The fear coursed through her body and slowly that fear took over. The stories and photos from the paper moved about in her head. Slowly her body began to fade away as she was seemingly becoming invisible. She knew she could do things, but she had no idea she could blend in with her surroundings.
