Weding ring problems
“Come on Aya. Don’t prolong this cat-and-mouse game more that it needs to be.”
The voice thundered over me. I turned my head slowly hoping not to find his face there, but “He” stood there with his arms crossed on top of a small building a few feet from where I was standing. His scarred face stirred an uneasy feeling with in me. My hairs stood on end as his gaze seem to pierce my own flesh.
“What, do you want with me Thanos?”
My voice was barely audible. All conviction had been flushed away from me when by a simple movement of his hand Thanos had destroyed a small portion of the town, and I had stood there powerless to stop him. Now as he was only feet away from me those fears arose once again. My hands where shaking as well as my legs no doubt due to my fear of this man.
“What I want from you is that lovely Ethera ring that you have in your right hand.” Thanos’ deep voice echoed in the empty ruins that I had known as a center of commerce.
“But, why?” I replied half-knowing the answer to my question.
“I need that ring if I want to accomplish my goal.”
“Why does it have to be my ring?” My hands had begun to calm down.
“Just know that I need it, and as for your future you can always become a nun.”
His laugh made my back shiver. I knew that his threats were not baseless and deep within me the feeling of fear had begun to completely take me over. My legs wanted to run from that dreadful spot but I willed myself to stay. Thanos jumped down, but his fall was slow as if the air was his ally. My fists were up and my ring began to glow. I felt my strength began to increase, but he saw me with unmoving eyes.
“How cute, the prey is trying to be the predator.” Thanos had finally landed on the floor. As soon as his feet hit the floor I saw him move forward. His movements were so fast that my eyes could not keep up. The only thing I felt was pain coming from my stomach as his fist connected a blow. My stomach burned with pain as I gasped for air from the surrounding area. He lowered his hand and grabbed my hair. My eyes met his eyes and my body was paralyzed with fear. He effortlessly threw me away. I felt weightless as I sailed the air powerless. I felt my ring come off from my hand.
“Now, to claim my prize.” Thanos walked toward me. His stride was slow but sure and that just added to my fear. He knelt down and picked up my right had. The fear I felt had rendered me motionless.
“What? Where is your ring?” He shot up looking for my ring frantically. In that tiny space of time I stood up and began to run. As I ran I saw a shine from with in the debris. That must be my ring. I picked it up and put it on. I knew if I turned around I would find Thanos behind me. I focused on the ring but, I did not feel my strength coming back. This is not my ring. The though shocked me. Then that must mean that the owner of this ring and me are now…
