Just a short, horror story.
This is my first attempt at horror, so please leave your advice on how It could be improved.
Driven by the scary drunk guys in the woods, a young maiden named Lora has been tripped by a bumpy thing on the ground. Only to find out that... it was an egg.
Escape into the forest, in the comfort of your cabin...
Eric and I are the perfect couple. The young, strong, will-be soldier and the pretty blonde girlfriend by his side. Homecoming prince and princess. Children of the Empire. With everything stretching out for us to conquer and subdue.
Except we don’t want to conquer. We want to liberate.
And so, by the darkness of the night, we make our way out across the threshold of Eric’s vast house. And we step into our new beginning.
Through the forest. Through the river. Beyond the horizon. To the place of our destiny.
Robbie Hode is thirteen years old. He is hungry, he is tired, he is grief-stricken. Sherwood Forest stretches green in front of him, his little impoverished community lights a fire in his heart, and the prince's castle casts long shadows. He is a prodigy at the bow. He is a rebel at the heart. And he will show them all, even if it costs him his life.

Azania was sixteen. And she couldn’t take it anymore. She had spent her childhood lonely, spent it terrified, spent it desperate, spent it aching. The only adults in her life were the people who saw her as nothing but a tool to exploit and use. She was told over and over and over again that she was nothing and no-one and she didn’t matter. The only people in her life who cared about her were fellow slave-children and she barely ever got to see them at all. She needed freedom. Escape. She was willing to do anything for it.
And she wasn’t the only one. All over the city people were being exploited. People were being forced to work under impossibly degrading conditions and live in abject poverty. People were silenced. Stifled. And they were longing for escape.
The Forest was beyond the edges of the city. It was a place of magic and miracles. It was a place of hope and freedom and rebirth. But getting there was next to impossible.
Within the Forest the wolves howled. Azania emerged from the water. And she wasn’t the only one. And she wouldn’t be the only one. Who she met changed her life forever.

A brief fairy-tale style yarn about a Village that lives by the old ways, and a young man who looks at the world beyond their borders.
I came up with it while listening to "Monster's Cohort (Bakemono Gurui)" by Yurry Canon. I tried writing based on mood and atmosphere more than specific story morals, so its really open to your interpretation.
The kings and queens were satisfied ruling in their large palaces. They thought, falsely, that their people loved them. The people were struggling to scrape by with their poverty and their oppression. But the Forest glowed beyond the fields and villages. The Forest that was the only thing the nobles feared.
For it's powers and it's magic did not belong to them.
But the young woman with the dark hair and eyes, as much as the prince wanted her, she belonged to the Forest. And she would use the powers it gave her.

This story acts as the first entry in the series. While it's definitely a good starting point, I've taken care to write each story in such a way that any of them can be read as someone's potential entry point.
