So this is the second chapter…and please, please, please review! Oh and my editor has a fanfic account too! She hasn't posted anything but is in-progress, she insists on keeping in the dark, for now.
Chap 2: Numbered
I will like to tell you that I eventually caught up to her but that was a lie because when I saw her everything stopped. I couldn't see her face but I could tell she was tiny and lithe also that she had red hair…like me. Sure it sounds romantic but that wasn't exactly the reason why everything stopped. It was because well…I still had that poison in my arm. I fell down with a large THUD and everything went black.
When I opened my eyes I saw a small figure wrapping my arm with a bandage. I still couldn't see her face but I recognized her red braid.
"Ugh." I groaned. My eyes felt like they weight a ton and my arm wasn't any better.
"Stop twitching." She ordered and that's when I notice I was twitching as her cold hand went up my chest. I was about to ask what in the world was she doing but I noticed that she was bandaging it too. "Don't be so full of you boy," she mumbled. "I am only bandaging it." I was about to argue with her when she stood up and turned away quickly towards a little fire. She tossed me my red shirt back. "Put it on." She ordered again. I don't know why but I obeyed her. "Good boy." She teased light heartily. I wanted to ask who was she but she shoved meat in my face and I didn't know but I was terribly hungry. I gobbled it down to its bone. I tried looking at her but whenever I turned to see her she turned the other way.
"Can I ask one thing?" I asked. She shrugged. "Who are you?"
"I was known as one name then another but you can call me: Two." She said as she turned towards me. I chocked in shock. It wasn't possible. This girl was like a goddess! She had a heart shape face and large hazel eyes. Her red braid went to her back and it seemed like she was a fallen angel.
"Two?" I asked confused. She nodded with a slight mysterious grin.
"Did you just make that up?"
"No," she said a bit shocked. "Why will I do such thing?"
"Well two isn't a normal name for a goddess like you." I shrugged. She frowned.
"Are you flirting with me?" she asked between her teeth.
"What? No! Is just the truth, that's all I'm saying, calm down?" I said. She just rolled her eyes. It was so cute…but I didn't say anything. She spoke like a character from a book, all with the right grammar and language. I looked around and saw that we were in a room but there weren't any windows. I was surprise to see electricity and she even had a stove like thing that was heated by the fire. How did she manage to have books here? There was at least a whole stack of them here…in this region (which was my region) I didn't allow anyone to have books…well after I read them all myself.
"Surprise?" she asked as I looked at her small bed made from an old mattress. It wasn't old or filthy just worn.
"Actually, yes I am, beautiful." I said. She rolled her eyes at me.
"You do not want to go further with the compliments boy," she warned. "I am not the type of company you will want."
"Whatever." I said. "I know you will come around." She laughed amused.
"What's your name traveler?" she asked. I was lost for words for the first time. She will kill me if I told her I was the all powerful Brick Jojo.
"Why don't you make me a number?" I asked. She narrowed her eyes looking at me with suspicion I really needed to avoid.
"Why will I do that?"
"Why will I call you: Two?"
"Fine…" she said defeated. "Your number is…Five."
"The others are taken….unless you prefer your real name."
"No, Five is good."
"Good," she said standing up. "Then perhaps I will leave you here and I will go."
"What? You're leaving?" I asked. She could not leave! She looked back and she laughed.
"You're a big boy Five." She teased but then there was an explosion. Her playful expression turned dangerous yet beautiful. She scowled. "You led them here!" she yelled at me.
"No I didn't!" I lied but she rolled her eyes and quicker than I thought possible she had my throat by a knife in her hand. "I thought I lost them!"
"You did not do a very good job then!" she growled.
"Did you really expect me to go far with my arm like this?" I asked and she looked down at my arm and then she scowled again as she took the knife away.
"I do not believe you but if you made this far then you're one of us." Two said. I was confused for a second but I didn't have any time to think about it because the next thing I know Two was pulling me towards a dead end.
"Is a dead end…?" I whispered a bit afraid. (If you saw the demon things you tell me that they are not scary and they are trying to kill us) but she grinned and kicked the 'wall' with her boot to reveal a secret tunnel. She quickly picked up a bag.
"Surprise much?" she asked while we ran towards the tunnel.
