I'm sorry for posting like this but I have no choice since I have no access to a direct computer so please bare with me. This is part 4 of my short story and the last part however it's very long ago I advise if you like to read any of my work a break might be needed, haha. Anyhow because I can't properly space the paragraphs I will be using the dash marks ( --- ) to show both the beginning of a new paragraph and the ending of the previous. I hope you didn't wait to long to read the last part and I hope you enjoy. Thanks for all of your support. --- As I come to its pitch black and I can hear the dripping of water. On high alert I let my eyes adjust and see that the rooms completely empty, sighing I test my head. There isn't much leverage, but I think of all the things in me and the powers they hold when they don't cancel each other out. Taking some hope from this I think of all the things I'd read, then it comes to me, " These things that bind, will not trap my mind. I will my powers to stretch their limits... " and I continue to repeat this. Snapping out of it I find myself standing in the corner panting and aching. Looking down I see blood and look around, across the room lays a dead man. The panic didn't set in and I can't walk over to the door. As the pain of my Grayson hurting me sets in, the door flies off is hinges. Storming out I make my way down the hall, just as I make it to the other door I hear his ragged breathing. My heart breaks even more for my dear Felix, the one I'm willing to give my life for. --- Putting my ear to the door I hope to catch something else from him to raise my hopes that that wasn't his last dying breath. Only to be disheartened when I'm only met with silence. What if' s run through my mind, the most prominent being, am I to late? Then I hear the slight rustle then a weak whimper lifting my hope. Summoning all of my strength I force the door open with just a simple push. Stalking through I quickly take out what must have been teen men. Walking carefully to Felix I check that he is still breathing, then I scan the room. I know deep down that Grayson is in the room, that he's to blame for Felix's torture. I want to make him suffer for all of the pain he put Felix through, for all the heartache I went through when he supposedly died. I'm not certain if it was his fault but this is the only way I can bring myself to kill him. I can't let him continue to hurt others and I have to put him out of his pain. --- He's been this way for way to long and I just wish to reach my Grayson, see him for the last time. Hoping it doesn't cause me to misstep in my mission to save Felix and get out of this place. Catching the subtle scraping of a shoe, pivoting on that direction trapping Grayson with a simple thought. Walking over to him I avoid eye contact not wanting to get trapped in his gaze. Knowing to do so means our deaths, which I'm not about to let happen. " baby please your hurting me. " he whimpers. I snap back, " your not my Grayson anymore, he's long gone and you know it! " He again attempts, " please I don't know what's going on. " on that last word I know he can barely keep himself from going out of character. " stop lying to me it's over. In no longer yours, the fact you marked me by biting me means nothing. " In a rage he struggles to get free, losing his kind loving expression for one of nothing good. I can his longing to hurt me and I stumble back. --- I don't know if I can deal with this, if I'm going to be able to overcome it. And it leads to me taking another step back and Grayson' s working face. When I took that extra step back, I bumped into something out someone and I wince. Only to be comforted by Felix's voice, " this ends today I won't let this continue any longer. Willa doesn't deserve this, Its only opening old wounds. Deep down do you really want this Grayson? " Grayson spits back, " why would she mean anything to me, she's worthless in my eyes. " Tsking him he goes on, " quit kidding yourself she meant the world to you. You'd have done anything for her. Even now you can't help but fall under her spell. " Out of desperation I plead, " please let us help you, we don't have to kill you. Just...Just do this for me, don't you love me? Want to continue what we once had? " " of course, but I've done to many terrible things I have to pay for. In just glad your the one to stop this mess that I've caused. " Only my Grayson would say such words and I lose all of my self control. Running to him I throw my arms around him and my tears are so close to becoming sobs. Realizing to late he had tricked me knowing I couldn't help myself. " I thought you were smarter than that you stupid girl. He's long gone just like you said to me earlier only you didn't truly believe it. " --- The sharp pain of the dagger registers, and I look into his eyes one last time before I fall to the ground. Then I think of something my mother used to tell me, " my enemy, my closest, my life and my end. You weaken me yet strengthen me always to the end. Follow me, call on me our time is close to through. With my last breathe I call unto thee to carry out this action. " A warmth spreads through me heading my wounds. Waking from my haze I look over to see the life leaving Grayson, crawling over to him I cradle him against me. I sit there numb to everything for so long I don't even know Felix is still in the room. Pulling myself up I walk over to him and willingly go into his arms basking in the comfort. " it's going to be okay Willa you did what you had to survive. He had to die and it wasn't even really Grayson, just his shell that was possessed. " " it's not fair he did nothing wrong all he did was love me. Was that such a sin. That I had to end him. " I breathe. Cupping my face with his hands he kisses my forehead sighing, " that's just it your the only one who could set his soul free. It may seem that he's gone but he's in here. " he's say tapping his chest. Taking in a shuddering breathe I kiss him not knowing how to put how I feel into words. " thank you for saving me, and in glad we're both alive but I must leave you. In only a burden and nothing else. " and I look in the direction of Grayson, he moves. --- Running to him u hold him against me, " baby, it's not your fault...you did what you had to. I love you but I can't stay, I got granted this, time to say my goodbyes. And Felix take care of my girl love her and never falter. She's with more than I knew and the same will go...for you." He looks back to me, " now listen to me, it's...going to be hard to go on at times....this is the way...it works though. I'm always with you no matter what, but I gave you my life...to save yours. It's your chance to honor my life that u have given. " My tears fall and I kiss his lips for the last time and gently last his head down, and close his eyes. Going over to Felix I sob, it hurts to lose him once again unable to do anything about it. Walking out with Felix carrying Grayson I bury the pain. I know one day I will get revenge for Grayson, for now though I'm on the path to healing and its a long path indeed.
