Chapter 1: Flashbacks and Dreams

            “You’re nothing more than a pussy to screw and that’s all anyone else is ever going to see when they look at you!” He screamed as he threw a glass, shattering it on the wall beside her. She tried to stop shaking, but she couldn’t help it.

            “A-A-Adam, please!”

            “Shut up” he said, throwing a plate at her. She screamed and ducked, putting her hands and arms over her head to keep any loose shards from cutting her. She looked down and saw her keys sitting on the table with her phone and she lunged, snatching them up and turning for the door.

            “Anna!”

            She turned just in time for a piece of a broken plate to slice from her left eye down her cheek. She felt the blood rushing down her face as she turned back, running for the door. She tried to yank the door open, but the chain was across it, pulling the door back shut. She tried, frantically, to get the chain away from the door, but her hands wouldn’t cooperate and by the time she had the door unlocked Adam had his hand around her wrist and pulled her back hard enough to fling her against a wall.

            She slid to the ground and when she looked back up she staggered onto all fours, seeing a black wolf, a wolf she knew was Adam, on the ground with another wolf tearing his throat out.

 

            Anna shot up in bed, clutching at her chest as she gasped for air. Liam bolted awake and looked around, his hair ruffled from having tossed and turned all night. She reached out for one of his hands and when he felt her hand clutch on to his he wrapped his arms around her as he sat up behind her. “Anna, it’s alright. You’re alright. You’re here. With me. Breathe. Breathe deep in. Let it out slowly. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. In. Two. Three. Four. Five.”

            She squeezed his hand while he counted and she took careful breaths. “L-Li-Liam.” She shook as she tried to breathe.

            “I’m here. Just breathe. Out for five, in for five.” She listened to him count it out as she took breaths in and let them out. She was still shaking, but she was taking normal breaths again. “What happened, baby?”

            She leaned her head against his shoulder, letting tears fall down her face. He pulled her onto his lap and held her there as she found her words. “Even in my dreams I’m not safe from him. Even with him dead he still comes in my dreams and I relive it. There’s no escaping him, Liam. There’s no way to get away from him.” She looked up at her fiancé, more tears welling up in her eyes.

            He kissed her softly. Starting at her head and slowly moving from the top of her head to her temple, her cheek, her chin, and ending at her lips. “You. Are. Free. He’s. Gone.” His words lingered on her lips.

            Anna wrapped her arms around Liam’s neck and pressed as close as she could to him. He held her there for a minute before easing them back down onto the bed. “Let’s try to get back to sleep” he whispered. She nodded and moved off of him to lie beside him and rest her head in the crook of his neck. He had an arm wrapped around her and she pulled the blanket over them.

            “Liam?” She asked.

            “Yeah?”

            “Thank you.” She whispered.

            He smiled at her. Anything for you, Anna. “I love you.”

Yes, I actually bothered to put a content warning on this. For good reason.

First chapter is live!

Weeeell... I'm planning a "real" story (with several chapters, yay :D) but I have no time to write anything right now :(
Should be better in a week or two. We'll see.

I'm still working on my own "time to write" stuff so I know how the "no time" thing goes. Lots of changes constantly happening around here so it's hard to say the least.

Hope you get time soon. Are you planning on posting your "real" story to dA?

Of course!
It may take a few months, I'll have to plan it, write it, read it, screw it, rewrite it, proofread it, translate it and upload it before. If all goes well.

I'll try to keep it rather short, like 8 chapters or so, or I'll never get to finishing it. I had a plot and a chapter, but since my characters were rather bland I made a lot of character development. As a result, half of the plot has become inconsistent with the new characters, so I have to replan it and rewrite the first chapter. Yeepee.

Well, it grows slowly and I won't write before I've got a solid plot, but I'm rather satisfied until now. I take it like a test, to see if I can actually manage to write more than a one-shot or two chapters before dropping a story. Or if I can manage to imagine a plot which can last more than two chapters.

Wow nice work, I like the begging part where she's having the flashback with Adam.

I was worried about how some people would react to it because of the content, but I thought it was a good way to open.

I'm glad you like :)

Yeah I liked how it's opened up to her flashback it makes the story exciting. Plus like I said before it's like watching a horror movie :)
