Escape From Dark Moon Island Essay

1752 words - 8 pages

Denial. Denial.

My heart pounded with every step I took. Just keep running. Right, left, right, left, jump. Branches snapped under the heavy footsteps behind me.

“You cannot outrun me, boy!” The massive creature roared. “Fan out! Surround him! Kill him!”

“Hey! Pick on someone your own size, Gargantuan!” A voice cried out. The footsteps ceased as I glanced over my shoulder.

“You...will die,” he said, his voice echoing in the dark forest. Gargantuan (Was that his name?) was glaring at a girl about my age. I almost fell when I recognised her.

“Katherine?”

“Toby, run,” she said. “Run!”

I did as she told me.

“Get the boy!”

A few of the malicious creatures came after me, fangs bared and ...view middle of the document...

Katherine lit one of the many torches in the room and told me to sit, which I did. Only then did I realise how hungry and tired I was.

Katherine, as if sensing my weariness, rummaged through a chest at one corner of the room. She produced a loaf of bread and some fruit, along with a bottle of water.

“Where did you get these?” I asked as I took a bite out of the bread she had given me generously. Even so, I felt like everything I ate and drank tasted more like clay than food.

“Shipwrecks happen a lot,” she said with a slight shrug.

“What about the whole Lunath thing?” I inquired. She closed her eyes and remained silent. For a moment, I was worried that she had fallen asleep but when she opened her eyes and exhaled deeply, I was taken aback. Instead of the ice blue eyes I usually saw on my sister, her eyes were as dark as obsidian.

“Creatures born of hate and hellfire,” she said. “I, unfortunately, am one of them.”

I stared at her quizzically.

“Gargantuan and his lackeys are…Lunaths that take on a more monstrous personality,” she said.

“I’ve noticed.” I nodded slowly. “Then…what are you?”

“When I was younger, I was told that everything had its own opposite personality like Yin and Yang, good and evil, land and sea…” she trailed off. “Anyway, Lunaths have two breeds. One, we call the Baders which is my kind, the good one. The other, we refer to as Zealots, the bad guys.”

“There are more of you?” I asked.

“Once upon a time,” she said. “The Zealots have hunted us down to the point of extinction. I am the only one left.”

I rubbed the back of my neck and leaned against the wall, trying to ingest everything that I had just learned.

“It’s confusing, I know,” she said, walking over to me. She crouched down in front of me and I looked at her.

“What is this place?” I asked.

“Dark Moon Island,” she replied hesitantly.

“Why is it called Dark Moon Island?”

“Well, like the dark side of the moon, most people know what it is but they don’t know what it holds. Secrets untold, left behind by our ancestors who once ruled over the earth.” She sighed.

“The thing is you have to go before things get out of hand. If Gargantuan gets to you, he will rip you to shreds,” she said. “So, you should rest up. I’ll keep watch.”

I pressed my lips together, another question forming in my head but I decided not to voice it. I lay on the rugged cloth on the ground and succumbed to the darkness.

Soon, I was awoken by Katherine who was obviously agitated. She paced the room, muttering gibberish and hitting the wall a few times.

“Blasphemy,” she cried. “What did he mean there was no escape?”

As if just noticing that I had woken up, she glanced at me before continuing. I could barely understand what was happening when she charged at me.

“Whoa! Calm down!” I attempted to placate her. She was panting heavily.

“Relax. What’s going on?” I asked. She twitched.

“Nothing,” she said. “Let’s get you out of here.”

She pulled me to my feet and...
