Return to Me

By Whisperer

Romance / Action

Prologue

It had all gone so wrong. This wasn't supposed to happen

“Maka!” Soul shouted to his meister, who was laying like a rag doll on the ground. Her leg was bent in an awkward angle, her skin was broken by scratches and bruises but what worried the weapon most were her eyes. The emerald orbs, usually sparkling with life, were now clouded over by a haze. As if she was staring at something above her that no one else could see.

Soul felt the wavelength between them shaking. As if it was hanging on by a threat. No this couldn't be happening! He thought desperately. “Maka, listen to me! Stay with me!”

It wasn't supposed to be so hard to stop the witch. She wasn't supposed to be this strong.

“Soul, how's she holding up?” Kid asked worried. He looked over his shoulder and saw his friend bend over the small blonde. His words didn't seem to reach Soul but he couldn't repeat himself since his attention was being pulled back to his target ahead of him.

“Maka don't you dare do this to me!” Soul growled. He stroked her cheek, leaving a bloody smear on her ivory skin. His hands had become coated in crimson when he'd tried to stem the gaping wound at Maka's side.

“S-Soul?” Maka whispered, her eyes finally seeming to find her partner's. If Soul hadn't payed close attention to her, he would've missed it.

But of course he didn't. He'd never stop paying attention to Maka. “Maka stay with me! I swear to Death I'll never forgive you if you leave me.”

Maka smiled a little. “You're not getting that easily rid of me.” she said before she started coughing. And to Soul's horror she coughed up blood

“You're going to be okay Maka, I promise!” Soul said, pulling Maka in his arms. “Where are the reinforcements?”

Maka slipped her hand in Soul's and pinched it a little before she suddenly became dead weight, eyes closed.

“Maka no! God damn it Maka, open your eyes!” Soul cried.

From a distance he heard the helicopters coming their way.

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.
