Chapter 1: Waking Up
Hi guys I was really sad and mad when Star Crossed was canceled. I loved Roman and Emery as a couple and I wished the show had continued. Since I've written some fanfics before I decided to write one on how it I think it should've continued.
(Continues from the ending scene of season 1)
I got up from the ground and walked to the edge. It was over. I looked down expecting to see people going about their daily routine as if nothing happened, but that's not what I saw.
I saw every person on the ground, they looked dead. The only people awake were Atrians, that's why me and Drew were awake. Emery. She wasn't an Atrian.
"Emery?" I said as I looked to where Emery was. She was on the ground like everyone else. I ran to her. Please don't be dead.. "Emery?! Hey."
I kneeled down, picking her up and putting her in my lap. She couldn't be dead, she cant be dead. I wont allow it.
I looked down at her, lifeless. Her eyes close, her body limp.
"Emery." I said as I checked her pulse. There was a pulse, she wasn't dead, but she wasn't waking up either. "Emery, please wake up." I pleaded. I put my head to hers. Why? Why did this have to happen to her? The most amazing girl. She was too innocent.
"Grayson." I heard Drew say next to me as he ran up to Grayson. I looked up at him. He had rolled him over and was now taking his jacket and putting it over Grayson's wound. "Grayson, wake up."
I then heard a sound coming from the Suvek. I looked up and a bright white light coming from the Suvek. Drew was still just trying to help Grayson.
The light was so bright I was squinting with my hand over my eyes and I still could barely see. I knew after this, my eyesight wouldn't be the same, better or worse, I didn't know.
Then I realized, what bomb has a bright light? It was not exploding, but doing something else. Maybe it did what it was meant to. To knock out all humans.
"It's not a bomb." I said to Drew who finally looked up from Grayson and to the Suvek. Then I realized. "It's a signal."
Then the Suvek started to lift off the ground, the blinding white light still eliminating from it, with something going around and around on the outside of it.
"A signal to who?" Drew said after a second.
"Our people." I said once it went away.
"Why is everyone asleep then?" Drew asked trying to help Grayson again.
"So no one could see." I said coming to a realization of what it was being used for. I looked back down at Emery. Were they gonna stay like this? I hoped not, I couldn't handle it if she did. "Emery," I whispered.
"How is she?" Drew asked.
"She has a pulse, but she's lifeless. Like she is dead." I said not looking up. I started to cry. It had been a couple minutes after it activated. If they were gonna wake up, why haven't they?
They will wake up, I tried to tell myself, I wasn't believing it.
Below me Emery gasped and woke up.
"Emery!" I yelled, I've never been so happy. She was awake! Alive! I didn't have to try and live without her, 'cause I knew I wouldn't be able to.
"Roman," She breathed. She sat up in my lap. Before she could say anything else I gave a kiss. I put as much love and passion that I had into this kiss. Once we broke she asked, "What was that for?"
"Whets the last thing you remember?" I asked confused. Did she not know she almost died. I was so happy she wasn't Grayson right now, and that Zoë, finally, was dead.
"Zoë pushing the button." She said. I explained everything that happened, and she was very happy. She said was just floating around in darkness, she could hear me, but she couldn't move, or say anything.
"I'm here now, and I'm so happy your alive." I said, and at that she went to Grayson, remembering that he was shot.
"How is he?" She asked Drew.
"Dead, sadly." Drew responded and Emery put her head to Grayson's body and started crying. I went over and comforted her. It hurt me to see her this sad. All I wanted to do was take away the pain, tell her it was gonna be alright.
But, how was I going to get Emery to believe it if I didn't believe it myself. We have no idea why the Trigs activated the Suvek, our people were either here or dead, our planet died. And the people who were not here or who didn't die on the way here, were dead because they decided to stay and try to save the planet.
'I'm sorry." I said eventually. "I'm sorry about Grayson."
"Look, we got to go, the Trags might be coming, plus people are probably waking so we shouldn't be here when they come up here." Drew said. "Plus we should find the rest."
"Your right." I said, and he was. We didn't know where Taylor was. Hopefully Julia, Eric, Sophia, and Lukas are okay.
"Lets go." Emery said getting up with me and Drew following her.
We took the elevators down and saw Julia and Eric waiting for us.
"Emery!" Julia said as she ran up and gave Emery a hug. "Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I am now." Emery said releasing Julia from the hug. "You?"
"Yeah, were fine."
"Where's Grayson?" Eric asked, walking toward us as we walked out of the elevator.
"He died." Emery told him and went to give him a quick hug.
"What? How?" Julia asked.
"Zoë shot him." I explained as Emery broke from the hug and walked back over to me.
"Please tell me she's dead." Eric asked as Emery wrapped her arms around my stomach. I put my arm around her neck.
"Yes. For sure this time." Drew said.
"There you guys are!" Sophia yelled as she came into the building, Lucas right behind her. Lucas gave Emery and Julia hugs and Sophia me and Drew ones. "What happened?"
