Lust in the Woods — Part I: Arrival


  I managed to purr out those words as I sat in the blood-colored River amongst the snowy woodlands I found myself in. My body shivered with chilling thrills as the freezing breeze encapsulates me, my breathing becoming a visible icy mist. I stood up, the wind hitting my lower half and causing me to slightly growl in response as I looked around.

  “ɪ ᴍᴀᴅᴇ ɪᴛ..ɪ ᴍᴀᴅᴇ ɪᴛ..” I whispered to myself and started off at the wintering environment around me. It reminded me of the Conceit Layer, although that place was still warmer in comparison to this.

  I had made it to the Mortal Plane. No Sigil. No Summoning. Nothing but a long time of crawling upwards..and it was worth it. This place was beautiful, after all.

  I continued onwards, the Blood Moon hanging high above me as the night plagued everything into darkness. But I was used to it by now, so I kept walking. The slushy snow underneath my feet gave me various sensory tingles as I tried to keep quiet, my entire being jolting in excitement at all the new senses it was experiencing.

  Eventually, I found something interesting. It was an Animal I had never seen before. It was pure white in fur, its horns beautifully portraying a tree-like look to them as I gazed at it. It didn’t seem to notice me, however..it was actually just eating away, acting rather pacifistic in nature.

  “ʙᴇᴀᴜᴛɪꜰᴜʟ..” I whispered to myself, about to continue my speech until my stomach growled in hunger. I hadn’t eaten since I left the Indignation Layer, so I was practically starving by now. So after clutching my stomach, I crawled towards the Animal on all fours.

  The Animal hadn’t noticed me, to my surprise, seemingly just munching at the ground. So when I finally got close enough, I lunged at it and unleashed my teeth, sinking them into its neck. As the Animal screams, I tore out a gigantic section of its neck before quickly hopping off of it, watching as it fell to the ground with a quiet thud and bled itself to death. And once it fully died, I skinned the Animal of its Hide and wrapped it around my body before beginning to eat its Organs one by one, occasionally swallowing them whole.

  I finished my raw meal rather quickly, my stomach bulging outwards as it made room for everything I just consumed. I let out a quiet sigh and looked at the remains of the Animal, gently picking up the Skull and examining it.

  “ᴛʜᴀɴᴋ ʏᴏᴜ ꜰᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜʀ ꜱᴇʀᴠɪᴄᴇ ᴀꜱ ᴍʏ ᴍᴇᴀʟ.” I spoke while looking dead at the Animal Skull, thinking. “ʏᴏᴜʀ ʙᴏᴅʏ ᴡɪʟʟ ɴᴏᴛ ɢᴏ ᴜɴɴᴏᴛɪᴄᴇᴅ. ɪ ᴡɪʟʟ ᴅɪꜱᴘʟᴀʏ ʏᴏᴜʀ ʀᴇᴍᴀɪɴꜱ ᴘʀᴏᴘᴇʀʟʏ.”

  Then, I started to look around for a place to put the Skull, eventually coming across a dead tree. I placed the Skull on one of its branches, letting the tree hook and dangle it from above the ground. The rest of the Skeleton was placed on the same branch to where the Carcass of the Animals was simply laying on it in peace. I stepped back and admired my work, smiling.

  “ʙᴇᴀᴜᴛɪꜰᴜʟ. ɪ ᴡɪʟʟ ᴋᴇᴇᴘ ɢᴏɪɴɢ, ʙᴜᴛ ᴍᴀʏ ᴀ ᴍᴏʀᴛᴀʟ ɢɪᴠᴇ ʏᴏᴜ ᴡʜᴀᴛ ʏᴏᴜ ᴅᴇꜱɪʀᴇ ᴛᴏ ʀᴇᴛᴜʀɴ, ᴍʏ ᴅᴇᴀʀ.~” I whispered to the Carcass and gently kissed the Animal’s Skull before venturing further out into the frozen night of my new Plane.
