(Ironclad is where the humans are right? and forge is the vampire place? im confused now....I hope its alright that I had made up my own little place)
Hailey had begun to take on the habit of watching the other townspeople from afar. Not getting to close to anybody. It had been little over a week since she had moved from her small home in Faders ridge, a small town, unknown by most, almost hidden inbetween a layer of mountains. It had taken all her might to move from Faders ridge to Ironclad, though faders Ridge had hardly been a warm home to her. It had provided the neccasary elements of survival. She could remember just a week before, when she had been using those elements, and then had made the descision to move to ironclad.
Hailey looked around, spotting one of the many scattered piles of debris from a bulldozed home. She didnt move, waiting for any sound coming from the rubble. She waited a whole hour before shifting foreward and searching the rubble. Finding nothing but the body of an infant and its mother, she turned, and left, not wanting to stay any longer incase any thugs came. She sighed, spotting one of the more forunate families, two children, a mother, and a father. It was rare to have a stable family be found in Faders ridge. Hailey smiled at the sight, saying a small prayer for the family and moving on towards another demolished house. There she found two loaves of slightly molded bread, and a dead dog. She picked up the dog, and took it with her. Meat was meat, no matter what form.
Hailey looked around her, disgusted with this demolished town. It was a wreck, everyone was dying, everyone was poor, all the families were unstable like hers. She cursed. Faders ridge was just a worn out old town with nothing to look foreward to, all the buildings were demolished, fountains were drained of water, people died every minute, there were thugs on every block. Hailey shook her head dissapointed as she reached the broken down old crematorium that she called home. The walls were brown and dirt stained, various bricks had come loose from the wall. All window on all floors were smashed, Hailey's real home though, was in the underground area of the creamatorium. Where she kept her few belongings. She walked down, ate the meat and bread, and packe dup her stuff. She was making the decision to leave this place forever, and go to Ironclad, a place thats only a three day walk away from Faders ridge. She smiled at the thought of leaving this place behind.
And now here she was. Exasperated, not knowing what to do with herself. Traveling with only a backpack that was torn and tattered. Her only food was the leftover dog meat she had saved. Sighing she sat down, she was now closer than ever the the vampire threat. It didnt scare her much, but it was unnerving. She had chosen to sit on a small patch of grass that littered the ground. Faders ridge had no grass at all, except for the dead weeds that would litter the cold ground. She sighed as she looked all around her. She had to admit that Ironclad was much Better than Faders ridge, in every way possible.
She could still Smell the putrid smell of death that you could smell on the streets. She shook it from her head as she stared up at the sky. Memories of her child hood sweeping aorund in her head.
TEn year old Hailey Hanes ran home from the dusty old school with pride shining in her eyes. She had just gotten her first report card, and was wanting to show her mom and dad. Before she got halfway home a terrible smell hit her nose. The smell of burning rubble. There was a fire at the old church. Hailey didnt stop running home though, in faders ridge if you stopped to help someone you usually got killed. Hailey entered her old apartment. Running to the kitchen and seeing her mother. For once her mother wasnt on meth, so Hailey handed her the repot card.
Her eyes widening at her mothers rare smile. Untill she heard the door to the apartment slam open. Her eyes widened more, but in fear, as her mother ditched Hailey and ran to the room. Hailey watched her drunken father walk in, a few of his friends with him. And that was all she could remember before she blacked out.
Hailey felt tears well up in her eyes. She couldnt remember much from that memory, but it was the one that was burned into her mind. She shook it away and stood up. Grabbing her back and made her way around Ironclad. Admiring everything. Then seeing a guy, in the distance, watching somewhere far away. Hailey was confused, so she stood there, watching also.
(ehhh, im feeling sappy right now, oh well, anyways, the guy is jared, lol, just thought we could make these human interactions pick up a bit, the vampy's seem to be having all the fun)
