The inhabitants of the small settlement Safe Harbor were following their daily duties as they did always; they went out to fish some food for the evening, some other young men were working in the forest to lumber some trees for buildings and many more. Everybody has his own job, everybody was important and there was one special person that has a very important job, even more important than any else; and this one was Jade.
Jade was a giantess and unlike other giantesses she wasnt a human eating person, no, she was defending humans and especially the inhabitants of Safe Harbor. The most predator in Felarya were already informed about the fact that Jade was protecting the area around the village and most of them stood away from this, so there werent many fights but from time to time some younger and brave predators tried to attack the village although
just to learn that a giantess like Jade can hit somebody in the face very hard.
This day was such a day, a younger naga tried to hunt some of the worker in the forest and she ran directly into Jade. Rotten luck for the naga, she wasnt strong enough and in the end she got only one trophy; a black eye.
Jade was exhausted from all the fighting, she was sitting at the border of the village, leaning against a bigger tree and her eyes went up into the sky. The clouds were flying along the horizon and a tiring feeling was lying over her mind, her eyes became heavier and then they began to close, a long sleep should follow; a long asleep with a dream, or maybe it wasnt a dream?
As she opened her eyes again she was standing on a wide grass field and she knew that this wasnt Felarya, it was a place more familiar to her.
As she began to stroke over her face she suddenly felt how her fingers began to slide over her forehead, the bandana she always wore was away
and there was more, she felt strange.
A last view down her body told her what exactly was wrong; she was smaller than usual and she also knew why; she was a child. She just wanted to look around again as she heard a voice beside her
Gotcha big Sis! and she was suddenly hit from the side and felt to the ground, a giggling girl was lying over her and grinned down into Jades face.
! came over Jades lips and she saw her younger sister, a child too. Her blue hair was longer than today but there was still this view, her cheeky expression and a big smile. Come on go down from me! Jade said a little annoyed.
Awww, big sis
why not having a little fun and playing with me? We could play hunting, youre the human and Im the giantess! she said and giggled while she was hugging her older sister.
Jade just sighed No! Because Mum told you its forbidden to you to use this magic again! The last time you nearly killed yourself because you couldnt control it! she said and pushed Nina down from her body and stood up.
Nina was lying at the ground and took a grim. Youre a little mommy-lover
always doing what our parents are telling you.
I can control this magic! And I swear you one day Im perfect with it and theeen Im doing something special with it! I promise you: one day everybody will say Look this is Nina, the grill that can make us all tiiiiiny with one fingertip youll see! she said and a dreamy glance came at her eyes.
you should stop daydreaming all the time and looking forward to something important. Like your future profession. Jade said with a stern expression on her face, Nina was just making a Pffff noise.
Ohhh look at me, Im Jade, the great strong giantess. I want to become a member of the guard
I will protect our people from the evil evil creatures that are everywhere and this means I can never smile and be funny
Nina was imitating Jade and stretched out her tongue and earned a angry expression of Jade.
Stop doing that! Im smiling very often and I also have fun! But I dont break every rule like you do! And I swear you, one day youll get a lot of trouble because of this! Jade replied and nodded to underline her words, Nina just wanted to say anything but then a lout yell came over the field:
JAAAAADE, NIIIINA! Come home, lunch is ready! and so the arguing was forgotten
for the moment.
They yell came from a big house, not far away. It was built of wood and three stages high, candle-light was shining from the inside; it was their home, the place where they lived their whole childhood.
Jade and Nina were entering the house and the warm air was surrounding them and her mother was expecting them. She was a big woman even for a giantess; she had long black hair and a warm expression on her face while she was hugging her daughters. They followed her into the kitchen; her father was already sitting in the spartan room. There was just a table, a fireplace with a big pot hanging over the flames and some chairs around the table.
A stern view went over the girls as they entered and sat down before the older giant was smiling.
Today Ive a little surprise
we went to the village and bought something special to eat. And while he was explaining he pointed to a small plate that their mother was carrying, Jade and Nina were recognizing instantly the small creatures on it.
HUMANS! Nina was yelling happy and also Jade was smiling bright. Like in Felarya humans were food in her home world but they were rare because her world was dominated by the giants.
The small humans were tied so that they couldnt run away but they were also alive, this was important for the taste. Everybody got one human and Nina grabbed her human, examined her it was a woman- and began to lick over her body, pushing against her body with one finger and giggled.
Nina! her father said a little louder and instantly the younger girl blinked to him. Dont play with them! They are living creatures like we are. They are our food, yes, but they are living souls and you shouldnt torture them. Just swallow them like everybody is doing it!
but after a second view of her father she sighed, nodded and opened her mouth, dropping the human at her tongue and swallowed one time. Jade was doing the same, moments before she swallowed her tongue was gliding over the body of the male human and she enjoyed the feeling of his struggling body inside her stomach. Yeah in the past she loved to eat them
she was like everybody else
Her view went to her mother and her dad, they were smiling now at her daughters, a proud expression on their faces. The picture of a perfect family
And then suddenly everything began to change
In the next moment she was again outside, it was dark and even if she couldnt see anything for moments she knew this part of her past. She was older, now she was twelve years old and she was alone on the far grass field, running into the direction of her house, even if she knew what she would see, she couldnt stop. Smoke was rising into the sky in the far and her steps became slowly as she was able to see her house; and it was burning.
Flames were consuming the woods, smoke was poisoning the sky and she felt how tears began to flow down her face. She ran as fast as she could to the house MUM?! DAD!? NINA?! but nobody answered, there was no reply, no sign of life, they were all dead, as many others in this horrible night, killed by a threat that never knew before.
Again the scene changed, she was walking along the ways, searching for her parents, inside her all the last bit of hope she had and then she found Nina, alive
but with finding her, her hopes were destroyed. Her parents were dead, Nina could escape the same destiny only very close and the big sister was now the only person in her life.
She held Nina in her arms, pressing her against the own body, tears were floating down her face, they were alone
and only a few months later she would leave Nina during a cold, leaving her back because she feared the responsibility for her
leaving her because she became a nomad.
Again everything changed and she was alone, it was the familiar scene, the scene which followed her in her nightmares.
The night when she got enrage, when her hunger made her to a stupid and mindless creature, the night when she wiped out a whole village of humans, eating everybody, biting through their bodies, drinking their blood
this all in this one night full of insanity, the night when she regretted everything, the night when she swore never eating humans again.
And in the end
there was only one picture of a young woman standing in front of her. She was smiling up to her and showed her something
This is for you
this gem should remember you at this day
the day when you saved my life. The day when she got the gem for her bandana
the day when she realized that she would never have something like a home again
Jade opened her eyes. It was dark, the sun was sinking and she began to shake her head. Nobody of the inhabitants woke her up. Her chin felt wet and as she blinked a few single tears were floating down her face. A last view into the sky and she whispered the same words she whispered before at this one night when she left Nina.
I miss you so much
I miss you so much
