SCREEEEEAM!

A resonating, shrill screech echoed through the Vystrian wilds as soon as she saw him. She had been stalking him for what felt like an eternity but in actuality was only a couple of hours, and she had finally found him. The wiry young boy wanted so desperately to be left alone, which is probably why he ran away from her directly into the forest, but she simply couldn't take the hint. She was completely obsessed, evident by the crazed glint in her eyes and the fact that she had followed him for over two and a half miles. "Why are you running?! I'm... going to write a song about you!" Miranda panted.

"P-please, leave me alone! You s-seriously ran that far?!"
"Come on," she begged as she stepped closer. "Pleeease?"
The thin boy took a step back. "G-get away."
Her posture slumped, relaxed. "If you... if you won't let me write about you, I'll make you!" Suddenly, even from her position, Miranda ran at him with all her might and grabbed him by the collar of his tattered shirt, grappling him to the ground. But, just as she was about to say something, she found herself grasping nothing but a scrap of cloth, and the boy was gone, the only sign of his presence a small lump of black shadow moving into the bushes.

Miranda got up and dusted herself off, pouting. All that fighting and screaming had created quite a commotion, and it would be a miracle if something unsavory hadn't heard it...

The forest was oddly silent. Birds didn't chirp, the insects seemed to be holding their breath. Not even the ravens wanted in on the feast below. In fact, the only sound was the crunch of tendons and bone in a powerful jaw.

A completely white head rose, empty eye-sockets whipping around, searching. Noise. She heard a noise. Everything about her honed into that. Her maw lowered, snagging the last of the meat from the last carcass, the blood-infected area around her seeming to take a sigh of relief as she shot off like a bullet.

And then she reached where a human was. Prey. Iruk made a sound akin to a howl before walking out of her hind legs. A misshapen beast, at thirteen feet tall. Her skin was a waxy cream-yellow color, and was taunt around her entire body. A deer-like head sat on her shoulders, topped with branching antlers, and adorned with fangs, one set mimicking what appeared to be ogreish tusks. The strangest part, however, were the vines of morning glories that were tangled within.

She shook herself, the thin bluish fur covering her body shaking slightly. A slender hand pulled back, and oddly enough lacked claws. Or at least, that'd be the first thought, as her serrated talons slipped free from her fingers and bare, lupine-like feet. If a wendigo could smile, she'd be grinning as she stood in front of the loud human.

With little more hesitation, the abomination of a humanoid dashed forward, opening her maw to be ready to bite. This'd be an easy meal.

Miranda looked around and shrugged. She'd find a new subject for her immeasurable creativity and talent, and with her astounding amount of loyal fans of her amazing work, she was sure someone would just fall into her arms just begging to have a song written for them.

What she didn't expect, however, was for that someone to be a wendigo.

Even Miranda had the sense to back away, terrified. Whatever that abomination was, it didn't look very happy. The girl suddenly felt an urge to shout at the creature with the only magic she possessed, but that thought only occurred to her for mere seconds before the towering wendigo dashed at her with speed she though impossible up to now.

With a shrill shriek, she desperately dove to the side when she saw it move, missing a gruesome demise by mere centimeters, still getting tackled by the creature and thrown into the trunk of a tree.

Then, for a reason even she didn't know, she screamed with all her might at the creature.

The wendigo honestly expected this to be easy. So when she smacked into the being, her first instinct was to bite. And bite she did, into thin air. Iruk's maw eased open now that she stood still again, watching the human, and a thin pink tongue flicked out to clean a piece of blood from one of the teeth.

Before Iruk could react, however, a piercing scream came from the girl, and she whined, covering her ears. And then she howled, ready to tear into the human. And that she made to do, figuring she'd ignore the screaming and just attack, the creature ran straight up to Miranda, claws extended, and a wild grin on her boned features.

Miranda stared at the wendigo, frozen. She had no clue why the hell she had just screamed at the thing, but it seemed to have worked... that is, until the beast howled at her. Then, faster than the simpleminded girl could register, it was already there.

She tried to dodge again, but this time she wasn't so lucky, its claws sinking into her flesh with a sickening squelch, rending her with the force. The girl was pushed further into the tree on which she had been leaning, the wooden trunk straining from their combined weight.

Blood trickled from her mouth and poured from the open wound in her torso. Clearly she wouldn't recover very quickly from that one; the massive gash covered the entire left side of her and was barely holding in her innards. Miranda slumped against the tree, her pupils shrunken. As far as she knew, she was done for.

Then something rustled in the overgrown bushes. No, two... three... five somethings. They tore through the plants to reveal a group of five burly humans, each wielding some variety of axe. By the looks of them, they were lumberjacks, and they must have heard her scream while they were on the job. "W-what the hell is that thing?!"
"Some kind of... zombie?"
"T-there are five of us! Go!"

All five men charged Iruk with their axes, to the faintly registered shock of Miranda.

Iruk was this close from biting into the food's neck, feeling that sweet lifeblood fall into her jaws when she heard something else. An interuption. Deer head whipping around, she examined the five humans. They would need to be taken rid of.

The wendigo rushed up to the first, snapping into his shoulder, while his cries of surprise alerted the other just how fast she was. Another swung at her, creating a gash in her shoulder, but she didn't even seem to notice as oily black blood began to drip out of the wound. But either way, the creature bounded back, to look over the lumberjacks warily, hovering over her first victim, glaring at the five hungrily.

The steady stream of black blood soon fell into the wound of her victim, but she didn't seem to notice as she rushed right on back at her new prey.

The lumberjack fell with a distorted scream as the other four desperately threw their axes at Iruk and ran away. It seemed Miranda was really lost, after all...

Then a tremor. A small one, to be sure, but it was something. After that, a larger one that lasted a few seconds seemed to cause the ground to vibrate a little. Finally, the ground started to shake abruptly and suddenly, causing Miranda to come to her senses for a moment.

The earthquake only got worse as time passed, and Miranda took it as her opportunity while the beast was distracted (or so she thought). She began to crawl away, aiming for the bushes behind the tree.

The tremors would be... problematic. Iruk steadied herself against a tree, and watched as her new prey started to escape. Glancing at the wounded girl, the beast turned suddenly, and got on all fours, taking off at the same speed at which she came, running after the four lumberjacks that got away.

A small time later, the death-screams of the four men rose into the air, and so too did the howl of victory that came from Iruk. She was feeding at last, lifeblood and flesh swallowed up greedily.

The remaining Lumberjack shakily got to his feet, abandoning his axe as he stumbled over to Miranda. He was obviously mangled, and was bleeding profusely. "C'mon, girly. We gotta get outta here, we gotta run!" He muttered, trying to help her up with what little strength he could.
