Chapter 1 - Slay the Nightmare
The chilled night was plagued by thick black storm clouds, turned ashy by the towers of spiraling smoke that drifted up from the remains of a burning town that lay tucked in the valley below. Somewhere off in the distance, a cold rain muffled the bloodcurdling cries of frightened townspeople that echoed from the heart of the remnants of the village. Heavy footsteps shook the ground with the force of a mighty earthquake, coaxing curious eyes to peer through the cracks of snapped boards to view the foul monster that stalked through the empty streets, hungry for his next human meal. A single large eyeball appeared through the shattered glass of the arched window a young family had been spectating from. The mother cradled her screaming son close to her chest, as if to shield his precious eyes from the hot, musty breath that swept through their dusty hiding place, while a small girl cried into the shredded cloth at her trembling side.
Charred bits of blackened wood showered down upon the quivering family as a massive hand busted through the collapsing ceiling, capturing the mother and her son in a powerful viselike grip. Squirming in a desperate attempt to escape the strong fingers that bound her son and herself to death, the mother tilted her terrified hazel gaze to the magenta spheres of the evil being that caused her home’s destruction. Within the hypnotic feel of the savage’s wide brutal stare, she could see no visible trace of anything humane or remorseful in their crystalline depths, which only fed the terror inhabiting her petrified mind. The beast raised them high over his wedge-shaped head, opening his large mouth to reveal two rows of razor sharp teeth coated in a sizzling lime green slime. As they were released from the python hold of the creature’s meaty fingers, the only sounds audible while dropping through the freezing night air were the snapping of great jaws, and the tortured cries of a young girl calling for a mother snatched from existence. #attackontitan #aot #shingekinokyojin #snk #snkfandom #fanfic #fanfiction #snkfans
