The sounds of screaming filled the boy's ears and jolted him awake, a concerned frown on his face. "Ciera? Is that you?" He asked, thinking that it was his little sister of five years. She often had nightmares and would wake up screaming during the night so he'd gotten used to sleeping light and waking up whenever he heard her. Much to his surprise, Oruin found that he was no longer in his bedroom but in what looked to be a jungle or tropical type of enviornment. "Now how the hell did I get here?" He asked himself out loud. He couldn't remember anything but his name, age and the fact that he was here. Everything else grabbed at the corners of his mind but would never reveal themselves.
Sighing to himself, the boy stood and then jumped as there was another scream. It sounded human, at least, and he decided to go towards the noise, even if it did sound a bit crazied. "Hello?!" He called out and turned in a little circle to see of his call had been heard. With a pout, he realized that it didn't and he contuined forward in the direction he assumed the person to be in. Eventually, he heard another human like noise but, instead of screaming, it was sniffling, like he or she definately needed a tissue. "Hey. Is somebody there?" Oruin called out again as he slowly moved the branches out the way, revealing the form of another...girl. "Hey. You. Girl." He said to her, trying to get her attention. "Do you know where we are?"
Aoi sat up quickly, a terrible nightmare startling her out of her sleep. "Ma!" She called out, not yet realizing that she definately wa snot back at home in her cozy twin size bed. "Mommy?" When she finally got a good look at her new surroundings, Aoi's heart nearly stopped in her chest. As far as she knew, she was in the middle of some jungle who's nane was unknown to her.
Okay....stay calm...There's nothing to worry about... she tried to reassure herself as she stood up, brushing off the little peices of dirt that clung to her pants. Something hissed near her and she nearly jumped out her skin. Nothing but snakes and other killer animals to watch out for now... The girl quickly moved away, running through a clumpf of nerby trees. What Aoi didn't know is that the trees abruptly let out to a cliff, one that she ran right over. Her screams bounced off the walls and her eyes watered. This is how it ends...This is how she would die--
Suddenly, her body hit a deep pool of water with a loud splash, nearly knocking the girl unconcious. The pool was endlessly supplied by a waterfall overhead and deposited by the mini river that was currently pulling Aoi downstream, her face up instead of down where she couldn't get air.
