Writing Game #2

Yes, I can see you're so very exuberant! It's the writing game and it's back!

He would have appeared to be a lost boy looking for his mother in the woods, had any stranger come upon him at that moment. They would never realize his status with the Dark King. They would never leave that grove of trees alive. Assassin for evil, the words tickled his mind. Did he care? Right now, he struggled with his own life. His soul.

He looked up at the sky, which peeked through the branches of the trees. He curled into a ball, wanting to hide under the roots of the trees. It's after me, he thought, the light is after me and it's going to get me. He could do nothing. It's my destiny. He broke down and sobbed. Everyone had to face the light and now his turn had come.
