My Dead Heart

ch.1 Awakenings

The sound of thunder boomed throughout the valley as streaks of purple lighting danced wildly through the thick clouds of the night sky. Deep in the heart of a place known as ”Dead-Wood Forest ” the pungent smell of blood was only just barely masked by the scent of fresh rain and burning wood that slowly withered before crackling out to die.

Charred tree stumps and uprooted plants littered the ground along with bits of debris and the horrifying sight of hundreds of corpses strewn about in random places. Each body was thoroughly dismembered and gutted leaving no trace of their limbs or missing organs only empty half burnt husks.

Among the bodies their stood one alone that differed from the rest. In the center of the chaos a feminine figure stood unmoving while adorning a slew of vulpine esque features. While having the traditional fox ears and tails that were typically seen in the spirit-fox branch of the tailed beast clan the little girl also had a patch of silkily black fur on her fore arms that ran up from her wrist to just past her elbow, while on her bare legs the same soft fur ran from just above her small ankles, up past her knees and stopped half way up her thighs; from afar it looked as if she were just wearing a pair of arm & leg warmers. Despite the healthy glow of her pale skin her body was ridged and unmoving even against the howling winds that threatened to uproot whatever plants where left over inside the unnatural clearing.

”Oh? It seems someone has finally managed to successfully absorb my inheritance…. Ah~ Truly a shame… It seems this body did not willingly receive it ” A voice that was her own yet completely foreign brushed gently past her dry, cracking lips before cutting through the stormy winds with a domineering aura that seemed to suppress everything around it.

”As our law dictates, in the case one manages to inherit our power without their consent or knowledge a boon must be granted to the inheritor before we depart… ” The raspy, inhuman voice mixed with the childlike voice of the bodys owner in the air giving the voice a rather sinister/creepy feel about it.

”Very well, you shall receive your boon along with the my power. However…. to have this situation come to bear in the first place is a great affront to me in itself… ” As the voice continued to speak one could feel a pure, unrivaled bloodlust began to build behind its words.

”It was not your choosing for this to happen, so you or your clan are not to blame youngling. ” After these words fell the head of the little girl slowly turned in a rather exaggerated manner before stopping so that her closed eyes fell to rest upon a certain corpse that layed up against a half destroyed tree.

”However these humans shall not escape blame…. As such I will reluctantly brake a promise I once made. Nitäl my time has come.. as such I can no longer look after your life essence thus I take it as my own and pass it down with my inheritance. ” Reaching out its dainty hand the body of the little girl reached out towards the corpse with an open hand.

The effect was immediate. All the blood in the clearing began to charging towards that charred corpse with a grand fever. Once most of the blood had gathered the little girl closed her palm and once again, the blood immediately responded. Small little rivers of blood cut through the loose forest floor with ease in their rush to follow whatever call drew it to that single corpse. The entire process happened in just the blink of in eye; first new arms and legs where formed out of blood that quickly hardened and solidified before changing in color to match the rest of the body. Second, any vital organs would be replaced while the rest would be reformed only for decoration. Third and finally, the charred skin and open chest cavity would be healed along with the head and brain along with any other cosmetic areas such as hair and genitals.

Once the process was finally completed the corpse corpse was fully restored if one were to guess they would think the man dressed in black robs with a full head of blonde hair was only sleeping.

”Once this body awakens you will be their to cater to its every need, but do not think this is your only punishment, no, for as long as this body continues to live so will you and through life you will cursed to face an unending nightmare.. Either awake or sleeping the agonizing torture that this body had to endure will be felt as clear as day in unending waves. ” As the immense bloodlust fled the area so did the domineering and wise aura that the voice once had. Slowly the child like voice that had at first mixed harmoniously with the rough and raspy voice had now begun to slowly take over.

”It seems my time is finally coming to an end… Good. I will finally be able to rest. Go little one and achieve what I could not! Let no one tell you what is and is not achievable! For you are my inheritor! The child of death and calamity itself! This world shall become your play ground little one, for you are no longer a simple mortal! You are a Primordial! ”

As the gentle morning rays of the sun eagerly began to peek over the distant horizon, the storm clouds that had once raged with unbridled fury had now began to gently part giving way to a clear blue sky.

In a small clearing a small grunt could be heard cutting through the sweet symphonies of the morning song birds. following the cute childlike grunt a small head suddenly jerked up tossing off the freshly fallen leaves that had begun to bury it to reveal the face of a cute little girl no older then 8 or 9 years of age. Atop the young girls head rested a pair of cute and fuzzy vulpine ears that seemed to hear to be listening to everything all at once. In the space where a normal human might find a pair of ears a set of thick, demonic like horns grew out before curving around so that they framed the little girls face almost perfectly.

Once fully awake the girls crystal blue eyes darted all around to take in her surroundings only to cause a small frown to appear on her thin yet supple lips. She had no idea how she arrived at this place!

”Mum? ” Her sweet voice
