Chapter 17: Struggling Truth

Elijah’s POV:

After dropping Luna off, I was fighting my inner self to not turn the car around! What the hell was Ren doing at the house? And what was he talking about with Luna’s Dad!? Just picturing my Luna and Ren talking to each other pisses me off! My anger was getting the best of me that I didn’t even realize how fast I was starting to drive.

As I pulled up to my house I parked my truck inside the garage. Closing my eyes, I took a deep breath in and exhaled heavily. I needed to relax my nerves...but I found it impossible, the thought of not knowing what Luna was doing was driving me crazy! What is she saying, is she with Ren? With my mind starting to overthink, I stepped out of the car and decided to take a breather... on top of the roof of the house. It was something I always did whenever I needed to calm myself. Besides, I am expecting someone to come by later today...

Once I sat on the roof, I ran my fingers through my hair while laying down to watch the sun slowly beginning to set. The brightness began to die down into darkness as I watched the many houses in front of me beginning to turn their lights on, one by one. Letting out a small chuckle, I found it amusing how needy humans are for any source of light. When they’re cold they make a fire to warm themselves from the bitter coldness that tries to consume them.

Whenever they’re scared they try to find any comfort that would protect them from the dark shadows that may be lurking behind them. They live off the sun yet shut themselves in their homes during the night, it’s as if they’re afraid of whatever wickedness may be out there to get them...

“Humans are such fragile creatures,” I whispered out feeling annoyed.

Resting my arms behind my head, I continued to lay down while shutting my eyes closed. I wonder how long it’s been since I last slept, has it been 8 years already? How am I supposed to sleep when this body of mine is constantly in pain...who knew that death would be this uncomfortable. I then suddenly jolt my body forward as I felt my lungs being set on fire! I immediately began coughing uncontrollably, gasping for any kind of air I could get. Covering my mouth, I felt a warm liquid touching my lips...it was blood. I wasn’t surprised seeing the amount that stained my hand. As I stared at the blood dripping from my palm, I heard someone calling out to me...

“My Lord.”

Without turning myself around, I brought my hand to a fist as I looked out to the horizon...

“You’re late, Raven,” I said while standing myself up as I wiped the blood from my mouth.

“My apologies, but your father had something very important for me to tell you.”

“So he’s still alive, huh? What does he want now?”

I asked as I turned myself around to finally face her. She had her eyes completely covered from that thick hooded robe she always wore, I’ve known Raven for many years now, my father would send her from time to time to check up on me to see if I was still alive. Though throughout the years, I’ve been able to rely on her whenever I needed something from the underworld. For example, Luna’s ring that I had Raven make for her...

“The king needs you to come home now.”

She explained as I watched her head turn towards my bloodied-up hand.

“My Lord, I also think it’s time for you to come back to the kingdom as well, this body of yours won’t last very long. You’re about to awaken anytime now, so I beg of you to leave this disgusting human world behind before you die with it.” She said in a deep concern...

“No! Not yet, there’s still one last thing I must do before I leave. Did you bring what I asked?”

I said in a serious tone as I approached her...

“Of course.”

She answered as I watched her pull out a hand mirror from her robe.

“This mirror will allow you to see and hear everything, as long as the person never takes off the ring.”

She explained as she bowed before me, handing me the mirror I stared at my reflection.

“So I’ll be able to know everything about what they’re doing for the rest of their life, correct?”

I asked her as I gripped onto the mirror more tightly...

“Yes, but once the person takes the ring off, the spell will be broken and it will no longer work,” she said.

“I understand, you may leave now. Oh! Before you go...tell my father that’ll I’ll be coming home very soon, however, there’s one thing I must do...”

I said to her as I walked towards my window.

“Very well my Lord, will all be waiting for our future king to come home.”

She responded as she took one last final bow before raising her hand in front of her face. Placing her index finger close to her lips, she muttered a few words that I couldn’t quite understand and I watched as her body began to dematerialize into the darkness that blended into the night sky. She completely disappeared right in front of me, all I could see was this heavy black mist in the air that she had left behind.

“Witches are so devious with their magic. But I guess someone like me has no right to speak, I am far worse than any of them...”

I said to myself while tilting my head back to see the many stars shining above me. However, I noticed that there was no moon tonight, no wonder it seemed a lot darker than usual. Shifting my body back, I went through my window before shutting it. This night was finally over for me as I began to strip my shirt off. Though my body was still aching in pain as well as my insides that still felt like needles were stabbing right through them! I tried my best to keep my composure in front of Raven and I think it worked. If I were to have shown any sign of agony, then I’m certain she would’ve brought me back to the kingdom...

I know that the only way for me to become a warlock is to die as a human, only to be awakened by the demon that chooses me. Though I didn’t expect the change to be this excruciating, every bone in my body felt broken, my blood throbbing with discomfort and my muscles growing weak. This heart of mine is suffering, it aches...and it longs for her. Even if it’s for a little while, she’s the only one that can make the pain feel nonexistent.

“Luna...I really wish you were here right now...I wish to hold you in my arms...and never let you go.”

I said to myself silently, it’s only been a few hours since I last held her. But it never seems to be enough. I’ve become greedy over the years, wanting her by my side, needing her soft hands to hold me close to her. To smell her beautiful scent of fine strawberries that she always lathers her body in and to taste that delicious skin of hers that I’ve come to crave so much...

“I hate myself...Luna...I’m sorry for what I’m about to do to you...I hope that one day...you’ll be able to understand...I’m becoming something you’ll despise.”

After saying that, the violent coughing came back to my throat! Making it extremely difficult for me to breathe, bending myself forward, I tried to get rid of the coughing. Only to then feel my body becoming heavy! Stumbling my way to make it to the restroom, I wasn’t able to even make two steps before collapsing to the door! The lightheadedness was just too much for me to handle...

But I still struggled to pick myself up as I reached for the nightstand that was closest to me, the heavy wheezing that I could hear myself doing was only further proof that my organs were shutting down. As I managed to sit upright on the cold floor, I was just too weak to move. Resting my body against the side of the bed, I slouched my head over to see the amount of blood that I have coughed out onto the floor...

“How...much blood...do humans have...in their fucking bodies...”

I grunted out in agony, feeling completely tormented. Reaching for the inside of my pocket, I pulled out the mirror that Raven had given me earlier. The front of the mirror was a bit smeared by my bloody fingertips, but I didn’t care. All that mattered was wanting to know if this will work! Holding up the mirror in front of me, I stared deeply into my reflection before chanting out her name...

“Show me....my Luna...”

Once I said that... the mirror reflected a flash of multiple luminous lights! The brightness made my eyes squint a bit as I continued to hold the mirror tightly. As the bright colors began to die down, I could see a faint image showing up...it was Luna! She was soundly fast asleep in her bed, I could see her shoulders slowly rising up and down from her calm breathing. The ring on her finger was glowing a bit, I guess that’s the magic that’s being connected to the mirror. I just hope she never takes the ring off, that way I could always watch over her...

Watching her sleep put my mind at ease, the pain in my body was now a bit bearable to withstand. Being able to see my girl whenever I want, was absolutely satisfying to me. It will make it a little easier to leave, only a little...

“Luna, forgive me...but I don’t think...I’ll be able to go to school with you anymore...”

I coughed out feeling completely dizzy. I knew that I could no longer attend school, not when my body is in this severe condition. I bet if any doctor were to examine me, they would all wonder how I’m still alive? Hell, even my heart feels like it could stop beating at any given moment...

No, not yet...not until I fulfill my soul desire...

“Luna...I hope that you can continue to sleep this peacefully when I leave...so please, don’t lose that smile of yours that I fell in love with...Luna...my Luna...I will always love you.”

I said delicately as I continued to watch her sleep, it was the only thing I could do that would keep me sane...this heart of mine...still wants to live...I don’t...want to die...
