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.

emmaneal74: I loved this booked. Would definitely buy it when published and read it again. The story flowed in such a way I just couldn't put it down. I was never confused about the characters or their roles in the story which can happen sometimes with so many lead. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to r...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

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!

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...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

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 ...

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.
