Your character and Katherine have been going out for a few years now, but Katherine has been coming home late, each time with some sort of scratch. One night, she comes home with a bruised hand, a split lip, and is limping. How does your character react to her appearance?
She looked around. Around the forest they once the ought would be safe from the horrors of the city. Her name is Iris. The boy laying next to her, dying, was Dylan. She called for help. For anyone, even the forest animals, for help. But it was too late. The arrow had taken his life.
