This is some of the back story a character I've been working with. Annag is pronounced Anak, Scottish Gaelic for Anne.
Annag, the lone surviving soul of Clan MacClarren, awoke in the unfamiliar bed, trying to die. Escape.
Escape the terror that began as her wedding feast.
Trying not to believe her betrothed had been torn apart in front of her.
Escape the vision of savaged flesh that had been her mother.
Trying not to remember her father being pulled down and slain.
Escape the scream of her young sister before her head was ripped from her body.
Trying not to see every one of her clansmen dismembered, bloodied. Dead.
Escape the soothing voice that kept repeating, "It will be alright."
This is my offering for Lance's #100wordsong.
The track this week is The Beatles; Revolution
