Lust in the Woods — Part III: Viscera

  About 7 hours of peaceful rest, I finally stirred awake. I forced my eyes to open and blink and I looked around, slowly remembering where I was. Sitting up, I rubbed my cheek in thought.

  “ɪ’ʟʟ ɴᴇᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ꜰɪɴᴅ ᴀ ᴍᴀᴛᴇ ɪɴ ᴏʀᴅᴇʀ ᴛᴏ ɢᴀɪɴ ᴍʏ ꜰᴜʟʟ ꜱᴛʀᴇɴɢᴛʜ ʙᴀᴄᴋ.” I mumbled to myself, stretching. “ʙᴜᴛ ꜰᴏʀ ɴᴏᴡ, ᴀ ʜᴜɴᴛ ᴍᴜꜱᴛ ꜱᴜꜰꜰɪᴄᴇ. ᴀᴛ ʟᴇᴀꜱᴛ ᴜɴᴛɪʟ ɪ ꜰɪɴᴅ ᴀ ᴍᴏʀᴛᴀʟ ᴀʀᴏᴜɴᴅ ʜᴇʀᴇ..ᴏʀ ᴀɴʏ ᴍᴏʀᴛᴀʟꜱ ꜰᴏʀ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴍᴀᴛᴛᴇʀ.”

  Standing up, I exited the bedroom and headed towards the front door before opening it. I stepped outside and back into the cold whiteness that I still found exhilarating, soon beginning to walk through the surroundings and back into the woods.

  “ᴘᴇʀʜᴀᴘꜱ ᴀ ʜᴇʀᴅ ɪꜱ ᴀʀᴏᴜɴᴅ.” I thought aloud as I looked around, keeping all of my senses on high alert. “ᴏʀ ᴀ ᴍᴏʀᴛᴀʟ ᴄᴏʟʟᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ ᴏꜰ ᴛʜᴇꜱᴇ ɴᴇᴡ ʙᴇᴀꜱᴛ..ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴍɪɢʜᴛ ʙᴇ ᴀ ʙᴇᴛᴛᴇʀ ɪᴅᴇᴀ. ᴇꜱᴘᴇᴄɪᴀʟʟʏ ꜱɪɴᴄᴇ ꜱᴜᴄʜ ᴀ ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇ ᴡᴏᴜʟᴅ ʙᴇ ʙᴇɴᴇꜰɪᴄɪᴀʟ ꜰᴏʀ ᴠɪᴛᴀʟ ᴍᴀᴛᴇʀɪᴀʟꜱ ᴀꜱ ᴡᴇʟʟ.”

  As I kept on walking, I suddenly felt something sharp temporarily piercing my skin, slicing my ankle. I growled in slight enjoyment and looked down to see something intriguing. Pieces of wood—it seemed—with sharp yet tiny spikes protruding outwards as if it was always in a defensive mode. I gazed at it all, my eyes widening in excitement and curiosity.

  “ɪᴛ’ꜱ ꜱᴏ..ꜱʜᴀʀᴘ. ʙᴜᴛ ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ ʙᴇꜱᴛ ᴡᴀʏ..” I whispered as I picked up a second of what had just cut me, smirking. “ᴀ ᴘᴇʀꜰᴇᴄᴛ ᴛᴏᴏʟ. ᴘᴇʀꜰᴇᴄᴛ..”

  As I continued onwards, I slowly realized that my blood was leaving a rather..rotten..trail behind. But I didn’t care. It’d help me find my way back, after all. So I kept going, eventually coming across a uniquely-shaped building..and more Beasts. Exactly what I wanted.

  “ᴘᴇʀꜰᴇᴄᴛ.” I state with a smile, heading closer towards the heard of Beasts. They were oddly close to one another, which would make it harder to hunt just one without causing a stirr. But as I kept on looking, I found it. A lonely Beast just minding itself.

  I decided to keep quiet, slowly approaching the Beast from behind. After a bit, I stood right behind it, currently thinking of an idea..until it finally hit me..

  “ᴘᴏꜱꜱᴇꜱꜱɪᴏɴ.” I whispered, walking up to the Beast. I gently waited until it opened its mouth to do anything else. And when it did, I crawled inside and vanished within the creature, taking over its body and also dropping the prickly tool I found earlier intentionally. I couldn’t help but chuckle as I got comfortable within it, finding myself—as usual—right behind its spin in its abdomen.

“ᴀɴᴅ ɴᴏᴡ..ᴛʜᴇ ꜰᴇᴀꜱᴛ ᴄᴀɴ ʙᴇɢɪɴ..”
