From Maggieís P.O.V
††††††††††††††† I slowly opened my eyes.
††††††††††††††† I was in the rock cave, on the edge of the small water pond that sparkled. Christopher lay in the dark corner of the room and I could tell he was asleep.
††††††††††††††† I lifted my body up and instantly felt aches.
††††††††††††††† I remembered the night before. I remembered the pain and what if felt like. Tears came to my eyes but I brushed them away quickly and tried to stay calm.
††††††††††††††† ďThe water will help.Ē Christopher said softly from the corner. I guess he wasn't asleep. He crawled out from the corner, stood and walked to the tunnel opening, ďIíll be a while Maggie, you can take your time.Ē He gave a faint smile then sped up the tunnel and out into the forest.
††††††††††††††† Where was he going?
††††††††††††††† It didnít matter. I wanted to take a real bath before he got back.
††††††††††††††† I took my dirty hood off that wasnít all that torn from last night. My clothes were only a tad bit worn and werenít bad at all. I cleaned the dirt off of them in the water. Then the dirt soon disappeared as the water cleaned the dirt out of itself.
††††††††††††††† I hopped in the water that wasnít cold but wasnít warm either. I dunked my head under and felt it cleaning my skin.
††††††††††††††† Pen would have loved this. She was always into the spa stuff and primping type activities.
††††††††††††††† The night where I camped in the forest with Chaz, Brian, and Pen came back to me.
††††††††††††††† I no longer felt bad for it. They were probably better off dead anyways. What was the difference in being dead and alive anyways? No one really amounted to anything. Even if you smart enough to invent something or do something interesting with your life you would just die at the end of it all. What was the point?
††††††††††††††† I could see now why Christopher wasnít so concerned with the life of humans. It was like the food chain. Humanís thought they were on top and they ate animals and thought they were better smarter. They never even consider that maybe there is a creature in the world that is stronger than them. They never even consider that Iím on top and they arenít. I eat them and they eat everything else. That must mean Iím on the top of the food chain.
††††††††††††††† If humans could eat anything they wanted besides their own kind. I could do the same thing.
††††††††††††††† I would do the same thing.
