After the Fall - Chapter 1Get up!After the Fall - Chapter 1 by TraumaChick777
I'm not entirely sure where I am, or why I've decided to sleep on the bare ground like this, but my inner instincts are screaming for me to get up, to run, to fight, to do something... I try pulling myself up into a sitting position, a deep, fiery pain radiating throughout my entire side. Reflexively, I draw in a sharp breath, but that nearly knocks me unconscious from the pain alone. Shakily pressing my hand up against the origin of the pain, I take quick, shallow breaths. I try moving my other arm; there isn't a response, just a twitching of my fingers.
Whatever injuries I've sustained are covered up by both my suit of armor and the woolen clothes I wear underneath. Despite seeing several lifetimes' worth of carnage in battle, I must admit I'm anxious to strip down and see the full extent of the damage. At least my wings are intact, I think to myself. If anything had happened to my wings, there really isn't a way for me to get back to my home on the mount

My wings are completely stiff, locked up in their folded position against my back.
This is how I'm going to die...
The ground is approaching faster than I can comprehend, with nothing in sight that could possibly break my fall.
Is this really how I'm going to go? Falling to my death while on a simple hunting trip?
I cover my head with my armor-clad hands in a last-ditch effort to protect myself.
I always imagined that, granted that I did die, I would go down in a glorious battle, my memory honored for aeons to come.
My life flashes before me; I can see my younger self training in the grand halls of the Valkyrie Palace, later being awarded the title of Elder Warrior, then Commander. Little Kathryn, the upbeat if somewhat naive Healer I've taken under my wing both metaphorically and literally. That's when it hits me...
Who will take care of Kathryn when I'm gone?
Heavens know that I know what losing a Guardian is like... Mine, a Kee
