Tomb Riader: Is it the End?

By Elizabeth B21

Adventure / Mystery

Chapter 1: The letter

Chapter 1: The letter

He turned his back on her and all of a sudden he felt a sharp pain in his back, going through to his stomach. He looked down and saw the tip of the claw poking through his shirt. He grunted and as it was pulled out of his body, he unclipped his Chirugai and beheaded the flying Boaz. Making the head roll on the ground. As he fell to the ground, he fell to the floor on his knees, clanging his stomach with on hand and the other holding him up.

"No!" Lara yelled from above, she had just come back from Eckhardt's lab when she saw Kurtis collapsing on the floor.

Lara began to look for a way down and grabbed onto the ledge of the catwalk and she lowered herself down to the floor. When landing she hurt her leg and looked up to Kurtis. She ignored the pain and run to his side. She rolled him over and blood is still seeping out of his wound. She placed her hand over the wound and applied pressure onto it.

"Hey Stranger" He whispered, she looked at him as he opened his blue eyes under her. She pulled her hand back and it is covered in blood, the injury is continuing to bleed.

"Oh bugger, Kurtis I can't lose you." She whispered and closes her eyes, trying to keep herself from crying. "What am I going to do when someone I care about…love, is hurt?" Kurtis reached for her other hand and placed some small kisses on it before placing her hand on his chest, over his heart.

"Lara, thank you." He whispered and Lara rested her head against his fore head and the tears came out. She could feel his heartbeat is beginning to slow down, every minute that past.

"Shh" he said quietly. Lara opened her eyes and moved a lock of hair out of his face, to see those ocean blue eyes.

"I love you, Lara." He said and smiled at her. She leaned in and kissed him on the lips fully. When she broke the kiss, he closed his eyes and took one last breath, before his chest stopped moving.

Lara looked at him as more tears streamed down her face

"I love you too, Kurtis." She whispered and she rested her head on his chest and fell asleep crying.

Many hours later and she awoke with a startled. Slowly she rose herself up from the ground and notice that she is alone. Kurtis's body is gone, Boaz's corpses is gone. The only thing that is still with her is Kurtis's Chirugai lying near the pool of blood he had left. She got to her feet and picked the Chirugai up from the ground, the blade snapped out, the orange glow beginning to form and pulled her arm to the door that Boaz had came out of hours ago. She looked at it as it pulled her to the darkness. She smiled and finally the blades closed and she walked off into the darkness.


Six months later…

Lara sat at her father's grave, thinking about everything that had happened in her life. She had her backpack with her and in her hands the Chirugai. Sighting she got off from the ground and clipped the Chirugai onto her belt. She zipped open her backpack and took out a letter she had written. She opened it up and read it over.

Dear Hillary

I'm going away for a while and need to clear my mind, sorry if I didn't say goodbye but I just don't feel in the mood for any talks. After what had happen six months ago, I've come to a point that there's more to life then Raiding Tombs and finding priceless artifacts and saving the world. You know after Alex and Terry I never thought I'd fall in love again…but I did and I lost him. I had held him in my arms in his last moments on this earth and I've not been the same since. I think I need to find myself, because the Lara Croft everyone knows, I don't know anymore and I think a trip away from everyone and everything will do me good. I'll be fine and don't worry about me too much, I will be back soon

Sincerely with love

Lara

She wiped away the tears that had been forming in her eyes and she said her last words to her father before heading back into the manor. She headed for the kitchen and placed the letter on the counter. She then went to the garage and walked around all the cars and bike's until she got to the newest one in her collection, Kurtis's bike.

She claimed on after opening the doors of the garage and placing the helmet on her head. She revved the engine and slipped into gear and she speeded off, out of the courtyard and onto the road. She had no idea where she is going but she just drove. Where ever she will end up no one will know.
