I swim as fast as I can, blindly fighting fish, this whole thing is a bloody mess! I see a sinister shape in the distance, and a flash of light. Silverbeam? I swim up to him, then I feel something slice down my spine. I give a small groan, then slump to the ground, before everything fades into darkness.
I open my eyes. What the-? This isn't where we were! I'm in an ocean, not a riverbed, an ocean, surrounded by colorful coral, and sparkling objects I can't quite make out. Small orbs float past me, like wisps. I see a familiar shape in the distance. " Neptune?" I say, stunned. he grins, then swims up to me, followed by... Shona. " What are you doing here?" I say to her. If she understood what I said, she ignored it. " Am I dead?" I say again. They don't answer. " Tell me!" I yell. " You are in a state where your passing between your world, and where we are," she says calmly. I glare at her. So I am dead, then. Neptune clears his throat. " Basta, something big is going to happen...something important. Darkmist is now defeated, but a bigger threat lies somewhere, hidden," he says. Shona looks at me, with those intelligent eyes I had once trusted with my life. " Silverbeam's powers will only work, if you are willing to come back... will you?" she says. I don't answer, deep in thought. She groans. " Basta, you're so blind! Can't you see, you have friends to go back to besides Neptune! Silverbeam, Draco, Manny, Flamesong, Mika, Oscar, and all of the others!" she says. " Even Breme and Iris," she adds, a soft look in her eyes. I stare at her. Did she think I wanted to be with her? She's wrong. I don't love her anymore, and I never will, although I have nothing against Iris and Breme. Though I am impressed she pointed out the pluses to me, instead of making it seem like I have nothing... maybe she... no, no. That's impossible. " Take me back," I say determindly. I see something in her eyes... sadness? Disapointment? Neptune simply smiles. " Good choice," he says, and everything fades into darkness once again.
Basta tears so fast to get to the others, we can barely keep up. We see a flash of light. Amazing... Silverbeam did it. He killed Darkmist. My eyes fill with tears of happiness, and in my giddieness. In my excitement, I hug Oscar, and he looks at me with awe, and I turn away, my face burning. I hear a small groan, and I turn, to see Basta, an open wound in his spine. " NO!" I scream
Hi guys, you've probably noticed I'm not on as much. The reason for that is the fact that I'm so much busier than I was last year. Also, I'm in the school play for once. (Squee!) So, I probably will be popping around everyone once in while anyway. But, until then- toodles!
