He needed that spider silk, and now all of a sudden he couldn’t find any spiders. They seemed to be absolutely everywhere just a day ago, and now it’s like they all had packed their dens onto their backs and walked away.
“Friend? No spiders,” Hadrian said to Wilson.
“I know.”
The forest was getting to him. The sun was starting to go down, and the twilight shadows kept playing tricks on him. Creepy tricks.
Here there be monsters.
That line came to him every time he thought he saw something. The scary thing was, there could be monsters here. Hell, he found pigmen and monster-ish spiders already, and whatever Chester was. Who’s to say there weren’t real monsters in whatever strange world he was trapped in?
That thought just made him more paranoid.
“What other things live in this world?”
“Don’t understand.”
Wilson almost wanted to slap the pigman. How could he not understand such a simple question? Instead, he placed a hand to his forehead in frustration. How could he word the question so the man-beast could understand him?
“Monsters?” he said finally. He had no idea if the creature would know what the word meant. So far, conversing with him was nearly always fruitless.
“Monsters?” Hadrian echoed curiously.
“Things. Beasts. Come on, Hadrian. Pigmen, spiders…What else?”
There was a silence. Their footsteps echoed in the dark forest. A gust of wind blew, chilly and threatening. Even Chester seemed nervous somehow, despite not really having a face.
“Chester,” Hadrian said finally.
“Yes, I figured.” Wilson was thoroughly annoyed. Why did he even spend time with this thing? It was so…incompetent. He assumed it was just his gentleman side. He couldn’t very well abandon something, even if it was dense as a rock. He was a gentleman scientist, and he took it very seriously.
“…What?” This answer puzzled Wilson.
“Trees. Trees alive.”
“Yes…Trees generally are.”
“No. You me, alive.”
Wilson thought he could infer what the man-beast meant, but he didn’t really want to believe it. They were, after all, surrounded by trees at the moment.
“You mean the trees are like people?”
“Trees alive. Few. They attack. Scary.”
Wilson went silent. Forests back home always seemed so serene, and now, here, they seemed like Hell. A very living Hell. Every time the wind blew now, he imagine the leaves being fingers, raking the air, trying to reach for him.
And the shadows. They all seemed like…they were trying to grab him and pull him somewhere. Perhaps a Hell even worse than this wilderness.
“It get dark. Not like dark.”
Hadrian’s words couldn’t have been more true. The trees seemed to be getting thicker as the sun moved along, blocking more and more of what little light there was left in the sky. He would have to make a fire soon.
“Huh?” Wilson wasn’t paying much attention to the pigman anymore. He was keeping his eyes on the malicious looking trees. Was he going crazy?
“Merms. Mmm…Man fish.”
Wilson was brought back by this. “Man fish? What?”
“Man fish,” Hadrian repeated, almost matter-of-factly.
“There are man fish? Like mermen?”
Hadrian looked at him quizzically. Of course, he didn’t know what mermen are, he wasn’t from Wilson’s world. All he could assume was that whatever the pigman spoke of was indeed something along the lines of mermen. Hopefully they weren’t dangerous. Either way, they were probably something that lived near water, which, as far as Wilson knew, they were not anywhere near. He’d have to fix that at some point, though.
But he didn’t want to think about it. Not now. Not when the shadows were getting darker. And longer. And closer.
“We need to make a fire.”
“Yay! Not like dark.”
“Neither do I.” He turned to Chester and crouched down in front of him. “Sticks, Chester. And some grass and flint.”
Chester opened his round maw and Wilson stuck his hand in. He drew out the items he spoke of and placed them on the ground next to Chester.
“Thank you, Chester.”
Chester made a chuff noise and sat down not unlike a puppy. If he had had a tail, Wilson assumed he would be wagging it.
He piled the sticks into a pyramid and stuffed the dry grass in between them, then rubbed some of the flint against itself until bright sparks shone and caught the dry grass. The flame quickly engulfed the pyramid of sticks, lighting the area with a comforting warm glow and expelling the shadows. He took some rocks from the surrounding area and carefully placed them around the fire.
“Light, yay!” Hadrian sat down in front of the flames with his hands out. Wilson sat down across from him, and soon after, Chester curled up next to him.  There was light now. Everything would be okay. What was he thinking? Shadows couldn’t grab him. They couldn’t even touch him. Why was he frightened?
He blamed it on Maxwell. He had obviously done something to Wilson’s mind, to make him fear this world. But why? What did Maxwell get from Wilson’s fear and confusion? He would find out, and he’d make Maxwell pay for it.
DS: The Dark Within (Chapter 1)
Prologue: DS: The Dark Within (Prologue)
Next chapter: coming soon
Wilson's fear of the forest (and shadows) becomes apparent, and so does his need for spider webs. A quest shall ensue! In the next chapter...

Before I upload the next chapter I'll be adding a few illustrations (probably one for each chapter from now on if I can get that done). I have an original character coming up I need to draw before her appearance. Hope you'll enjoy!

:iconikilleditplz:WARNING: LOTS OF INFO ON ME BELOW :iconwapeplz:
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8 I upload writing, art, and non-furry costumes on this account (and this is also my main one, so if you want to contact me do it through this account). I try to check my messages every day. My other account is :icontwistedterrace: , which I post CLEAN furry art and fursuits (furry costumes) on. I'm not separating these two accounts because I'm embarrassed to be a furry, it's just a sad truth that I know people will judge me for it. What they don't take the time to understand is, I'm a furry for the artistic side and I will have none of that weird porn/sex crap, and most furries aren't even like that anyway. I make suits, and I love to see other makers suits. Is that so bad?
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8 I'm believed to be the biggest Silent Hill fan out there, at least according to most everyone I know, so feel free to chat me up n' shit :D I understand all of what people don't seem to about the series. I own multiple copies of each of the games and have a whole crap-tone of memorabilia that I really should take pictures of o.O It's ironic, though, that people think I don't have any deeper understanding of Silent Hill when they are told about the storyline for my animated series "Fog Lights". Well, it's a crossover, what do you expect? It's NOT going to be exactly like Silent Hill, it's not supposed to. So don't get on here and start spewing about how I "did things wrong" in Fog Lights. I know more than you do, I'll bet, and I'm not just saying that. You can't bash something when I never intended it in the first place. Dummies. Pfft. Anyway, I was a fan of the whole series until it all started going downhill around Homecoming, BUT: Homecoming was still on my okay list. So was Downpour, although it had a shit-ton of stuff I didn't approve of, but I'm really glad that got that creepiness back. Dem mannequins O.O Then there's Shattered Memories. Don't even talk to me about that game. I try to believe it never existed. Questions, comments? Feel free to shoot. Oh, and I'm still looking for voice actors for Fog Lights, so send me a note if you're interested!
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8 I'm a zombie and lycan fanatic, I know much, much more than most people can even comprehend about the subjects, as well as their origins and 'facts' in each type of mythology. I'm also somewhat adept in the subjects of other mythological creatures such as nosferatu and pretty much anything else you can come up with.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8 I'm a female gamer. I prefer PS3, but I also own and original Xbox, a Wii, a Gameboy, a DS, a 3DS, and a Vita. Most games I love are first person shooters, but I have my strays.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8My favorite games consist of Pokemon, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Amnesia, Penumbra (VERY MUCH PENUMBRA) and more, you can find in my "Interests" section. My favorite game of all time is 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8I love to read and write. My favorite authors are Dean Koontz, Scott Westerfeld, and Stephen King. I collect Dean Koontz books, and my favorite series is Odd Thomas.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8My favorite movies are Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Warm Bodies, Saw, Jurassic Park, Get Smart, Despicable Me, the FIRST Resident Evil (only), and a bunch, bunch more, check out my Interests.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8My favorite band is The Birthday Massacre, and I hope to meet them and have them sign everything I own someday :D
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8I also have a GREAT GREAT love of dinosaurs, and I still don't understand why everyone seems to think they're 'gay'. YOU'RE gay.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8My favorite dinosaur is a Dilophosaurus. I love them very much <3
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8Aaaaaaand...hmm...I can't think of anything else :dummy: TA-DA! Mah page.

HEY LISTEN. HEY LISTEN. I'm a zombie fanatic and I LOOOOVE Warm Bodies! HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!
My answer: BECAUSE IT'S CUTE AND ITS SUPPOSED TO BE A COMEDY SO I DON'T CARE. I'm all for 'real', mindless zombies. I'm probably one of the biggest female zombie fans out there. Seriously, you all should see my room o.O That doesn't change the fact that I think Warm Bodies is f*cking adorable, and it's hilarious. Don't go see it for the zombie aspect, and don't be expecting 'zombies'. Expect cuteness and hilarity.

I certainly will, you're amazing!

Are you guys still hanging out at the college for the summer semester? Not sure if I should come visit :o I'm not taking classes over the summer but I'd love to hang out with you guys still.
MSundinPhotography Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
XD Thank you!

I haven't heard anything about where people are hanging out during the summer, which is kinda annoying because I've been aching for a duel. 
KyraMcKinley Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014  Student General Artist
Me too :( I've been dueling my mom, but she's kind of a noob. She really likes it though. She actually awkwardly told me today she wants to start collecting her own cards but was kind of reserved about it XD I guess she really likes it, which is cool with me, I'd love to tell people my mom plays Yugioh. BADASS PARENTING.
