chapter 13

I heard the voices of my parents, Emily and Joel all calling out to me. I wake up and see that I’m still in the clearing but I look down to see that I’m not wearing the traditional sun dress but the same dress that I wore to graduation. I’m not entirely sure how I woke up to wearing this dress instead of the sun dress that I should be wearing. I look around and see my parents, Emily and Joel are extending their hands towards me. I start to walk towards them, how long has it been since I’ve seen my parents and Emily have such loving smiles and Joel looking happy to see me.

“Come back.” A faint yet familiar voice said to me.

I know that voice from somewhere, who could it be? Their voice is so distant and faint, they must be a great distance away from me. I soon stood in front of my family and hesitated, I shouldn’t be hesitating. I know that I’m supposed to take their hand and move on but if I do what happens to the people that I leave behind?

“At the center of your being you hold the answer, you know who you are.” A mesmerizing voice said to me in my thoughts.

“What should I do then?” I thought.

“Search deep within and remember.”

I closed my eyes and followed the directions, I looked deep within myself and suddenly I saw all of my memories from when I was alive play like a movie that’s played in movie theater. All of the death that I’ve seen when I was alive, but I see Alucard, Shawn and the others waiting for me but also seeing my family wait for me. I don’t want to leave them but I also know that I must go. I know that I’m the most powerful witch but I don’t think that the prophecy has been completely fulfilled yet.

“You would be correct, dear child.”

“I still need to die don’t I?”

“Yes, but think first.”

“What do you mean?”

“I can’t say anymore, I’ve said too much for you to know.”

“How long do I have?”

“As long as it takes but just remember the time that passes here is half the speed of the living.”

Great that means I don’t actually have long. Let’s see, Joel died and uncle did too but I’m torn between returning and fulfilling the prophecy. What to do? I see two paths one leading towards my family and the other leads to Alucard and Shawn. I don’t know what to do, I stand at the fork between the two paths. I’m sick of this choosing nonsense, I’m drawing out my own path. I side step to the left to blankness as I’m stepping a path forms ahead. I could feel inside myself that I made the right decision.

“Good bye, mom and dad. Emily and Joel, I’ll miss all of you.” I said as I feel the blankness swallow me whole. “I don’t regret my decision.”

I hear two voices calling out to me but they still seem so distant and quiet. I’m sure that once I wake up, Alucard and Shawn are going to be so angry at me. It makes sense, I did disobey their orders. Again. I want to go back and see Alucard and Shawn.

“Show me the present.” I said as I transported to the present but no one will be able to see or hear me.

“Lilura come back to us. Damn it, you’re supposed to be at the house.” Alucard said as he punches a tree which goes flying across the clearing.

“Punching a tree won’t bring her back, Alucard. You should know that by now. You stupid vamp.” Shawn said.

“What did you just call me, dog boy?” Alucard said angrily.

“You heard me bat boy. God, I can’t stand to look at you.”

“Same here.”

This isn’t supposed to happen, I’m supposed to die and get buried by them. They aren’t supposed to be fighting over the little things. I have to return to my body and set things right.

“I think that there’s a way to bring her back.” Alucard said as he comes back to my lifeless body.

To say the least, I don’t look good. One hole in my right side and the death ray that got me right beneath the sternum. I’ve got so much blood covering everything, when I return to my body I would have a low chance of recovering. I might as well go now. I walk over to my body and have my face hover a few inches from my dead face, after looking at my face I gently rest my forehead onto my body and do a summersault so that my spirit matches up with my body.

I could feel something coming from my body and spreads across the entire town then comes back at a forceful speed. I suddenly cough and feel the rain bounce off my face, I try to sit up but I feel someone keeping me down.

“I’m sorry.” I said as I started to cry out loud.

“Welcome back, Lilura.” Shawn said as he gave me a hug.

“You are a mischievous witch you know that.” Alucard said as he came over.

“I know and I’m sorry about that.” I said trying to sit up again. “Alucard can you come here.”

Alucard sulked as he came over to my side. He kneelt next to me, I looked at him and saw that he was trying to hide his tears.

“I know that I’m mischievous but thank you for looking after me.” I said sliding my finger at the corner of his eyes. “I’m sorry that I’ve cause so much of you to suffer at my expense.”

“Shut up, that’s in the past now.” Alucard said getting up. “We should get you to a doctor’s.”

“Sounds like a good idea.”

I spent two months in the hospital recovering, I tried to walk a few times but of course I was caught by Alucard or Shawn. They hardly ever left the hospital, they would only go if a vampire or werewolf came to get them. Since I’ve killed my uncle I haven’t tried to use magic at all. I don’t know if I can still use magic or not, I want to try it out but I keep being interrupted. I look outside and see that the weather has turned from bad to worse. Downpour hitting the windows and strong winds shaking everything, I’m surprised the power hasn’t gone out yet. Suddenly the power went out, I just had to open my big mouth didn’t I?

“Light.” I said and nothing but I waited patiently until the lights in my room came back on. “I’ve still got it.”

“Yes and you’ll pay for coming back.” A low gruff voice said in the room but I know that he isn’t physically here.

“Who are you?”

“You’re worse nightmare.” The voice said as everything went dark.

AN: This is the end of the book. I don't know if I should write a second one or not so if you want one just give me a message. I probably will but I don't know how long it will take to write and post that one. Sorry.
