A/N: This is my first fanfic, and I hope it's good. I think the coming chapters after 1 and 2 are going to be much longer, and have more action of course :P. I'd really love some feedback on this story so I know how I'm doing, thanks!
An untimely meeting
He woke up, staring outside the window into the sunset. Wait, sunset? It was that late already! What did it matter to him though? It was just another boring day in Freeze City. Nothing new was going to happen, but he built up the energy to get out of bed anyway.
The walls were tearing off a little bit, the sea green paint faded off even more than it already had, if that was even possible. The wooden floor creaked whenever someone walked on it, and was obscured with random clothes that probably went out of style years ago. He had a tiny kitchen and bathroom too, but they were just as old and decrepit.
Letting out a wolfish yawn, he scratched his hair, and decided to leave. He lived on the 4th floor of his decaying apartment complex, and as he walked outside, the smell of rotting food pierced his nose. He always had a gift for smelling (as weird as it sounded), but that's how it was. A sea of trash greeted him as he looked around the street. He looked to his left and saw the vegetable vendor who lived right outside the apartment complex.
"Hey there Yan! Would you like to buy anything? I have your favorite red peppers. They aren't that easy to come by anymore you know…"
"That's fine old man, I've… gotto go…"
He was usually really outgoing with the old man, considering he was one of the few decent folk around here, but he couldn't stay. He had to go. Where to, he didn't know. But something seemed to be calling to him. It sounded so weird when he thought about it, but it's just that he needed to go somewhere… So, he followed his instincts and walked up the hill through the market district.
The voices of the annoying shopkeepers constantly tried to pervade his mind, but his determination remained undeterred. The chatter of the shopping street was something regular that you had to live by, if you, well, wanted to live there. All the people flaunting their wares on the streets just kind of annoyed him, but that's how life had to be in this place.
And just then, he stopped in his tracks. Looking at the ground he saw a small animal, no more than a quarter of a foot tall. The small white kitten greeted him with a "meow.", and then walked away into an alley. Maybe this is where he had to go. He followed the frivolous feline through the convoluted alley, and… arrived at a dead end.
"How surprising, a dead end. Why do I do this to myself? I'm gonna go crazy if I keep doing stuff like this… or if I keep talking to myself… What a waste of time…"
He stretched is arms into the air, and turned around to walk away…
He couldn't move. He was paralyzed. His eyes were open, surprised beyond belief. His legs were shaking like a hammer had struck both his knees. The sight he saw as he turned around, was, appalling.
There in front of him, was a wolf.
Its fur glistened in the shine of the sunlight, but every hair looked like a knife ready to cut him up. Its teeth were sharpened and glowed like small little stars in its mouth, but they were ready to bite off his appendages. Its claws were a beautiful brown color, matching the coat of the creature that was about to take his life away. Every time he thought about how beautiful it was, he couldn't help but to notice how easily it could kill him.
Yan was paralyzed with fear. Everyone knew wolves were extinct. Scientists proved it already, didn't they? All of the sudden, Yan wasn't so sure of himself anymore. The legends told of how dangerous wolves were; their voracious appetites… their relentless drive… and… and… it was looking straight at him. With both of those ideals in mind it seemed. Black pearls in a sea of gold fixated on him. And all of the sudden a smile crossed its face.
Hold on, a smile?
It was too late to think about it though. The creature lunged towards him, sinking its sharp teeth into his left arm. Scarlet tears flashed off of Yan as he threw his arm around in a rage, trying to get the creature off.
"I… everything… it's going white…"
And with that, he fainted.
