The barren field became a battlefield for Atlas and the unknown creature. The whole thing seemed to be cut out from a Hollywood scene. Vanessa’s eyes would always scan his body back and forth while her hands trembled from time to time.
Looking at her action, Atlas, who was lying on the rugged ground, smiled at her. He held her hand making her trembling stop. “I don’t think I’m going to last long now, but you don’t have to worry I’ll be alright.”
“Don’t laugh!” she shouted. “It’s no laughing matter!” Her brows furrowed with anxiety.
“Don’t worry I’m not going to die. I think I’m going to fall asleep any moment soon tho.” He squeezed her hand as gentle as he could.
“Muu, don’t make such a comment that’s easy to misunderstand…” She pouted seemingly unaware that her anxiety was gradually fading.
He smiled. “Then take care of me then—”
Darkness overtook his vision.
She tucked her hair behind her ear and displayed a beautiful smile. “I will—just have a good rest.”
James kicked the dead creature while cursing it before coming over with a medical kit and Mike in tow. Mike tried to kick the monster but it suddenly opened its bloody mouth making him run for his life behind James.
“Hey, don’t leave me!”
When James got closer, Vanessa said, “He’s just sleeping.” She was gently stroking Atlas’s hair while still holding his hand as gentle as possible. To James, it looked like they were lovers. But he knew that they weren’t.
“Now would you look at that!” he said with a laugh.
Ignoring James’ remark, Vanessa turned to him. “He is in deep pain right now… please help him.”
Mike’s eyes were wide open. “Do you know this guy?”
Having done the first aid, James wiped the bullets of sweat forming on his forehead. “What the f*** is this guy?”
Seeing every wounds and bruise on Atlas, Mike said. “He is a monster right, don’t you agree?”
With furrowed brows, Vanessa said, “If you two don’t have anything else to say, then please leave.”
It was at that moment, they knew they f***** up.
“We’re sorry,” James said. “Hey, Mike, come here. Let’s try to contact the authorities.”
“Y—yeah,” Mike said with a laugh, “let’s do that, James.”
But before they tucked their tails between their legs and went back to the chopper, they didn’t forget to kick dead thing.
Far away from the love birds, James put his arm around Mike’s shoulder.
“Mike,” he said, “What do you think about miss?”
“Vanessa?” Mike asked.
James nodded. “Yes, do you think she’ smitten?”
Mike knitted his brows. “I don’t know. Vanessa has never been with a guy before— much a less a monster of a guy.”
“He is one lucky guy if he landed it right,” James whispered.
Having realized something, Mike shouted, “Oh, I bet he is!”
“Don’t you agree?”
“I certainly do,” Mike said. “So we’ll be leaving the love birds for now.”
James smacked his back. “That’s what we are doing!”
