IMPORTANT NOTE: He is NOT flipping her the bird!!! I actually referenced someone's hand for that beckoning pose, and that's what it came out looking like!! SO DON'T BE IMMATURE!!**Aki was running through a dark, cold forest. She could hardly see where she was going, and her other senses seemed to be heightened greatly. The sounds. The loud, ferocious sounds. There were men, hundreds of them, hot on Aki's trail. It seemed the more she ran, the more the voices only seemed to grow stronger and closer. Aki's breathing was heavy and her heart was pounding hard in her chest. They would catch her at any moment. Suddenly, one of the men dashed out from behind a tree, and tried to make a grab for her, yelling to his comrades that he'd spotted her. Aki screamed and managed to duck out and away from his outstretched arms. But she would turn another corner, and another, and each time there was another one of the fearsome men waiting to capture her. She turned another corner, and screamed. There before was a tall hooded figure, flanked by a vast army of men. The glowing red eyes coming from underneath his hood were unmistakable. With a wave of his hand, Aki was brought to the ground as if many invisible bonds had entangled themselves around her, restraining her, choking her. The figure approached and removed his hood, and started leaning his face toward hers. But the man's blue hair and red eyes morphed into a familiar but just as fearsome man with silver hair and silver eyes. She cried as his lips met hers.**
Aki screamed and awoke with a start, panting and shivering despite her warm surroundings. She looked around frantically to see that she was just still at the campfire, with Ryuu and Usa nearbye. She felt her moist forehead and tried to calm herself down, but only broke into a fit of more tears. 'I can't escape him...!!'
A scene from the Marchen RP where poor Aki had a nightmare... And a terrifying one at that. Pretty much it's her past creeping into her mind and mixing with her current situation with Ryuu. She is afraid that Ryuu is going to do the same thing to her that Freyr did; Overpower her and force her to do his will.
And unbeknownst to Aki, Freyr IS now a very powerful force, and pretty much controls the entire elven population. He is closer on her tail than she knows...
I imagine Freyr's army of henchmen to be a mixture of elves and humans, either family men who need the money, forced laborers, or greedy bandits. I intend to give a few henchmen some decent character depth when they come in...
the gradient fill feature! And photoshop+tablet=LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE!!!
I'm so happy with this! The only thing I don't really like about photoshop is the difference in colors when I view the image outside of it. -_-;; Rather annoying, and gray tones are essential to my work!!! This is a bit darker than it should be, but I think it's still fine...
Aki, Freyr, and funny old men (sorry, no Ryuu) (c) Me!!
