Chapter 157 Real Conversation
Elena turns around and looks at Eric, going for his hand. Giving him a smile. He takes her hand and they both walk upstairs into there quarters. Elena finally feeling at peace. She remembered everything now. There was nothing clouding her mind. She was free.
“I am sorry he did all that to you Elena,” Eric says.
“It's not your fault. I should have never left with him in the first place. It was all my fault.” Elena answers.
“That’s not true. You didn’t know he would be that way. You always thought he was better than that. You have a good heart.“Eric remarks.
“I had a good heart. I am not that person anymore Eric. I have done a lot of bad things, I just want to be the woman you want. The woman you think I am, Because no matter what I have done, it was so I could be with you. If nothing else i really do love you. That was never a lie.“Elena responds.
“You do still have a good heart. You have just been put in bad situations. I never second-guessed about your love for me. I know its true. I feel the same about you, I want us to be able to live a happy life together. I may not like your dark side but you are the woman I want.” Eric replies.
“My dark half is part of me. I can’t change that, To be honest I don’t want to. I am glad she is part of me. To protect me and make me strong. Make me who I should be, Instead of the little girl that was so scared Who fell apart. I Won't let that happen again. The only thing that saved William tonight was you. I knew you were behind me and I didn’t want you to witness that. Otherwise, that opener would of went from ear to ear. You need to know what I truly am. Not that naive girl you once knew.“Elena admits.
“I have known that for a while now. I see you will do anything you need to. To get what you want. I see William has taught you a few tricks. In a way, it’s a good thing I am glad you can take care of yourself. You need to. I also see that you can control her now. You have come a long way from when I first got here. I also see I can tame you in away. I keep you on the right track. If you feel I will be disappointed or mad, you can control it. That may be a good thing.“Eric answers.
“For you, I would do anything. I don’t want to scare you away. I also can’t live a lie. I lived it for far too long. I need to be free in every way.” Elena comments.
“I understand that Are we leaving here?” Eric asks.
“Yes, and we are taking Alexie. No more games. He can still see her, Just her. I want nothing to do with him. I am done. I want to give you the life you want. The marriage you wanted from the start. Just me and you The way it's supposed to be.” Elena remarks.
“Do you think he will really let this happen? What about his protection?” Eric responds.
“After all this, I don’t think we will need his protection. He can do his little rants if he wants to. It’s not going to work. He is just going to have to move on.“Elena reveals.
“I know you just went through a lot. Just before all this, you were willing to go back to his bed. To make the marriage work between all three of us. Are you really ok with letting this go? Letting him go?” Eric asks.
“Yes. It’s about time. I can’t hold on to the past anymore. If it was going to work with me and William it would of already. I chose you. Now I need to keep it only you. ” Elena answers
. “I am very glad to hear that,” Eric replies Holding her close to him. Kissing her head. Taking a deep breath. Hoping that what she said tonight stays. That she doesn’t change her mind or go to William.
Eric saw a different side of her. She was dark and angry with William. Yet she turned it off with him, The dark side leaving and talking to him. Being two reasonable adults. Then again he did see she wanted to kill William, but because he was there She withheld her true feelings. He knew she was growing stronger. She was just as evil as William if not more so. Eric knew it. There really was no hiding it. William created a monster One he should be proud of. She was better than any other creation he could have made. She as a bitter angry woman. William was in for it. Eric just knew that Wiliam wasn’t going to stand for this. Elena walking out on him and taking his child? Yea right. William loses a fight? That wasn’t like him at all. When she was holding that point to his throat he stays there for a while till he got bored and pushed her away. Could she really defeat him? In the end, Eric wasn’t sure if they were going to get there happy ending or not. There was always something in the way. William would just have to think of something else to get to her. Not to mention he knew even if she took Alexie. She would still be in the way. William would want to see her Using that as his excuse to see the child and even Elena. He would still be in there lives. It was just a start to break free, just the more and more Eric thought about it. They would never really be free.
