Guardians of the Spiral Chapter 1

Chapter 1: Wildfire- Jason raced through the forest avoiding the flames that engulfed the area. The fire seemed to leap at him like a Cougar attacking a Deer. All of it was spreading rapidly. What had started as a simple camping trip had turned into a nightmare. He and his parents had gone on a monthly camping trip in the Sierra Nevada mountains. He had gone out to look for some wood to burn a fire but out of nowhere smoke covered the area. He started running and had been running ever since. But then he suddenly stopped running. He had ran to the edge of a cliff and was cornered if he stayed the shock from the fire would probably tumble him off. Jason's mind raced, should he stand his ground or run straight into the brilliant orange flames that had covered the normally peaceful and quaint landscape. The fire was approaching fast and he had to act fast. So without thinking Jason ran away from the cliff straight into the flames.His body was overwhelmed with heat and there was no part that didn't ache. He was losing sense of where he was. His mind started going into shutdown mode he knew this was it there was no escape he was dying and there was no stopping the fire. He closed his eyes and prepared to die he hoped his family would be fine without him and as his last moments approached him he quickly smiled and then everything went black.
Chapter 2:Blizzard: Nicole huddled next to the run down shack it was too small to enter and it looked unstable anyway. Nicole was on a simple skiing trip with her school but then she and her friend had gotten lost on the mountain, A storm soon set in and they had to huddle next to this shack. Her friend Erin had gone to find help 2 days ago but she had never returned, it had now been 3 days alone in a blizzard with no food or water. Frostbite was slowly killing Nicole and the blizzard had no intention of stopping. She was persistent though, she would try to live as long as she could but she knew it couldn't be too much longer. Her heart was beating slower and slower by the second. Her fingers were purple and she was homesick. Her mother had advised her not to go on this trip, she had always been right why hadn't she realized that. Her body was slowly warming up which meant she had hypothermia too another problem. She knew her time was up she wanted to go and find Erin but she had no strength. The best thing she could was close her eyes fall asleep and hope for death. She pondered the thought for a few minutes as she constantly shivered. She finally laid back on the snow and closed her eyes for what would be the very last time.
I hope you guys like the story two more chapters tomorrow(Tempest,Earthquake) See ya in the Spiral!
