No Return

809 20 10

I opened my eyes slowly to see a crying abel. He was yelling something in the other direction but i couldn't make it out, all i could feel is pain all over my body and I just wanted it to go away and be with abel.

I lifted up my hand stroked his cheek. his eyes snapped to me and relief covered his face. He did a small smile and kissed my hand saying my name over and over oh how the butterflies erupt in my stomach when he says my name.

I felt myself about to slip out of conciseness but wanted to say something so that when i wake up we can do it. "Abel when i get better i want to see the stars" he kissed my forehead while saying "we will definitely go see the stars Ariel and we can have a picnic."

"what's a picnic?" I asked. "it's when you go somewhere with a loved one and you eat privately with them just enjoying each others company"  I smiled at thought of me and abel trying to throw grapes in each other's mouths but failing.

"I would like that abel I want to go everywhere with you because I love you"   he sniffed and said "I'll take you around the world and back Ariel" I felt really weird so i closed my eyes to sleep I can't wait for the picnic...

When i came to i was in a meado..wait how'd I get here? "it's beautiful isn't it" I heard the most gentle voice say. I quickly turned around to find a beautiful women with white long hair that reached her stomach with violate eyes. "yes its beautiful can you tell me where it is so me and abel can come" I said while taking the view in

"it's called the in between" I thought how weird to name something so beautiful an in between. The women placed her hand on my shoulder and said "are you ready to go Ariel?." "yes but where i don't see the castle anywhere"

"oh no child" she said, "you don't know" she gently took my hand and led me to a white oval shaped door.. wait when did that get there. suddenly i am on the street wait i know this street i looked over to the side and saw Abel rocking back and forth. Wow its abel thank god "thank you for taking me back to abel bye" I went to go tap on his shoulder when i heard him mumbling.

then I heard him sobbing when i went out in front of him I saw..me!?  wait what but what no no I'm right here this doesn't make since "your body was left on earth but your soul travled here child" I turned around and felt the hot tears stain my cheeks "so..o.o..o I'm dead?"

the lady nodded and said I silent sorry

NO NO.NOOOO I can't dead what about our picnic the stars going to see the world NO NO NO IT'S NOT FAIR I LOVE HIM I WANT TO BE WITH HIM NOOOOO

"I WANT TO GO BACK TAKE ME BACK NOW PLEASE JUST PLEASE GO BACK GO BACK"

"I'm afraid I can't do that your already dead child" I fell on my knees screaming why me why me. "it's time to go Ariel you can't stay here." I whipped my face and said "NO IM NOT GOING TO LEAVE HIM"

I rushed to his side and kissed his cheek "I'm right here I'm here abel I'll be with you always I'm right here" but he didn't move like I wasn't even there "I'M HERE LOOK AT ME ABEL PLEASE LET'S GO ON A PICNIC LOOK AT ME COME ON LOOK AT MEEE!!!!!!!" I yelled

"let go child he will grieve but will one day join you but you need to let go" I watched him let his men take me in a black carriage "is it really over am I not able to go back ever?" I asked

"I'm sorry" I walked over to him and said

"I'm sorry I did not mean to leave you it's beyond me i cannot carry the weight of a heavy world so goodbye"

that was the last line from the first book abel gave me. The lady stretched out her hand that I took with confidence "are you ready my darling" I took a deep breath and breathed out a yes.

suddenly a a huge blinding light appeared I looked at the women wide eyed and she said "keep the memories of good in your heart and throw away the bad" I smiled and my eyes started to water

my eyes burned from the hot tears going down my face. I turned around and said "I will always love you abel always and for eternity" then turned and faced the white light. come on Ariel don't be a baby go i heard in my head

I took a small breath and stepped into the blinding white light.
