“It's your choice.”

 He hung up. Those three words laced with venom. They were heavy on the scales, three words that could be disregarded in a millisecond by others. But these words held hidden messages. Between each word hidden and powerful threats were being detained, waiting to be unleashed, unlocked. Those words held trouble. His words echoed over and over again in my head like a song stuck in your head, except this was far from being a song or anything soothing to the ears.

The word ‘choice’ is a noun, meaning an act of choosing between two or more possibilities. His word choice was inappropriate. I see no possibilities. The only thing I heard was a threat and it was a must do. He gave me no choice at all. It was basically do or die. Or if I don’t do, I’ll watch everyone I know die.

Who knew three words could be the choice between my life and death, or other's lives, between my happiness and sadness, between peace and war, between love and hate and lastly between friends and enemies.

 This time I couldn’t curl up into a ball sobbing and having anxiety and asthma attacks one after another, like I would have done a few months back. Now I have no choice but to fight. I need to show them what they choose to mess with. I’m going to fix everything that’s been broken. I’m going to fix this all.

Alone.

By myself.

Without the help of anyone.

Or perhaps just one person.

Or maybe two.

 They say don’t start something you can’t finish. Well although I was pushed into this, I had no choice but to finish this. Once and for all. 

I need to do this for Blade, Jackie, Felix, Pixel, Bruce and Grace.

For Luke.

For mum.

“…Stay strong. Always have hope. You’re powerful, you’re not weak. Prove it to everyone, especially yourself. Prove it. For me…”

Yes mum for you. Sorry Luke, you’ll just have to suck it up. I am really sorry, but I’d rather you be angry with me than dead. I’ve already made that mistake twice.

“Gabby… I love you too, take care of yourself, go home, stand up tall, proud and fly, don’t be afraid to be yourself, I wanted you to be m-mine, you’re special…”

I loved you too. In fact I still love you and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to find someone as special as you. You were sweet, fun, kind-hearted, sometimes really annoying but you stuck by even when I pushed you away. Kai I won’t let you down.

I’m determined, to do the impossible for everyone’s safety. All these years, I’ve been hiding behind my brother’s shadow. I’ve been at the bottom of a dark, deep pit. Now I have to reach out, climb out on my own. I need to set things straight. I need to pull and push everyone away, of course not before I give them what they’re looking for. I’ll only go down fighting. If not with my fists, I’ll use my legs. If not with my legs, then I’ll use my teeth.

I'm Gabriella Charlotte Phoenix for God's sake, and I'm new and improved. 

Luke would be fine on his own for now, I’ll be back. Soon.
