Artificial Angel Novel Prologue RewrittenTorrential rain pelts down all around a tiny girl as she flees barefoot down a forest path illuminated by tiny shreds of moonlight that pierce the branches above. Each step she takes brings her closer to collapsing from exhaustion but fear drives her beyond her natural limits and she continues through the darkness with no true direction. Her brown muddy cloak weighs her down greatly but without it she'd succumb to the unrelenting storm long before her pursuers could catch her.
Tracing her every step is a platoon of savage knights who would stop at nothing to present their king with the trophy of the hunt; the cold lifeless body of the girl. Unlike the girl the knight's horses gallop with haste but their sheer size restricts there movement in the dense forest allowing the girl a more even playing field.
Despite this the armour clad leader of the knights creates a new path with his steed barbarically disregarding his surroundings as he tramples everything between him and his targe

Girl with wings
Rain pours down on a tiny girl as she runs barefoot down a muddy path through a field with no grass. She is wearing a dusty brown cloak which covers her face in shadows. In the distance a group of armour clad horsemen pursue her closing the distance rapidly. The horsemen's armour clangs loudly as their horses gallop after the exhausted girl.

Squinting in harsh sunlight I make my way across the concrete platform and lower myself down into the dusty river bed. Green plant life is huddled in the very centre of the riverbed desperately trying to absorb the little water the once grand river now provides. It's a long walk just to get to the water from the river bank but the effort is worth the reward.
Stuffing some of the edible plants into my bag I scoot closer to the water and dip my drinking flask into a puddle. The water level is dangerously low and it takes all my effort to avoid scooping dirt into my flask. I drink my fill and refill my flask using the last of the puddle. I'm not sure what to do next. This will only last me a day and although there is a few other puddles around I don't think they will last more than a few hours in the sun. I don't want to say it but I think I'm going to have to move on.
My world is small, I've never had the need to leave the comfort of my home under the br
