Chapter 24: Last Touch

Elijah’s POV:

Hearing Luna moan one last time, she let my body go before going limb. I’ve never seen her wear such an expression before, she had the utmost intense pleasure in her eyes. But as I slowly began to pull myself out of her, the existence in her eyes soon changed! I knew she didn’t feel whole again without me...and I felt the same way. It was like we could never get enough of each other no matter what. So I immediately pulled her hot body close to mine as I laid myself next to her. However, her body was still shaking as I held her tightly. I guess I was a bit too rough with her...

“I love you, Eli. So much...don’t ever leave my side, okay...”

She said in a weak sigh before snuggling close to me, it’s painful...how one minute my heart could feel so close and connected to her. To only feel it shatter into a million pieces, she was my world, my air, and my life. I don’t want to leave her in this disgusting world where these humans can touch her. I wish I could just take her with me, and just have her all to myself...

“I love you more than anything in this world, Luna. Don’t ever forget that...”

I said while placing a kiss on her forehead, slowly running my fingers through her long silky hair. I grabbed her bedsheets and covered both of us with them as I pulled her back into my embrace. She looked so delicate and fragile in my arms that I couldn’t help but bring her closer to me. However, I completely stopped breathing when I heard her speak...

“Elijah, when we’re both done with school...let’s get married.”

She shyly spoke as she buried her face against my chest. I could feel my insides breaking apart as I began to shake with fury. How can my life already been decided once I was born! What the hell am I suppose to say to her! How can I look into those gentle warm eyes of hers and just completely ruin them?

She then suddenly raised her head and looked at me with that cute smile of hers. She was so precious to me that I would give anything in the world to protect that smile. But I have no right to speak since I’ll be the reason for her tears very soon...

“We...could talk more about it tomorrow, it’s really late now. So let’s go to sleep...”

I painfully said to her as I placed a kiss on her eyelids, I was trying so hard to hold back my tears as I averted my sights soon afterward...

“Okay...goodnight Eli, I love you.”

She responded so sweetly as she gave me one last smile before she cuddled herself closer to me. If things were a lot different, I would have been the one to ask her to marry me! It hurts knowing that I can’t be the one to make her mine forever, Luna. My Luna...please, at least have sweet dreams when I’m gone. Don’t lose that smile of yours, I need you to stay happy for the both of us...

Hours have passed since Luna had fallen asleep, I watched her body lay there right next to me. As her soothing calm breathing filled my ears with ease, I touched her smooth shoulder and began to caress her soft skin, following down to her collar bone. I traced the sharp angle of her sculpted frame and leaned myself closer to her face. She was even more beautiful in her sleep as I closely watched her breathe in and out softly...

“Luna, my beloved...I’m sorry...I’m so sorry, I hope one day you’ll forgive me. I love you...I love you so very much...”

I whispered so she wouldn’t hear, but a part of me wishes she did. Carefully scooting myself off the bed, I carefully stood myself up and made sure to cover Luna’s naked body with the sheets. I didn’t know how hard this was going to be, just watching her now without me next to her, was sending me into a world of madness! I don’t know if I’ll be able to leave her, it’s just too much for me to bear!

My mind was soon set on something else as I suddenly felt someone’s presence lurking around the room. Still completely naked, I made my way to the restroom in total darkness. Facing the mirror I was able to notice a light misty fog forming right behind me...

“Raven, didn’t anyone tell you that it’s rude to peep on others?”

I sternly said as I stood there watching her from the reflection...

“I apologize, my Lord. But you’re almost out of time, It’s almost sunrise. You must come home immediately.”

She said with uneasiness in her voice, I knew that I had no more time left and that everyone was waiting for me back in the underworld...

“I understand, let me get dressed first...wait outside,” I said to her in high demand as I left the room to put my clothes on.

Almost fully clothed, I began to prepare myself mentally for what was to come. Everything is going to change now, and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do it on my own without Luna. Shifting my gaze towards her, I saw that she was still sound asleep. Making my way in her direction, I ran my thumb lightly against her soft lips and admired her beauty one last time...

“What if I bring her with me?”

I said in a low voice as I looked at the ring she was still wearing...

“Then she’ll die,” Raven spoke to me telepathically as I continued to watch my Luna sleep.

“I could protect her,” I said while clenching my fists tightly with anger.

“You’re not strong enough yet, my Lord. Please, we must leave at once...”

Raven responded impatiently as I felt myself beginning to feel weak. She was right, no matter how much I looked at it. There was no other way, Luna has to stay here for her safety. If only I was stronger! Only then, could I have brought her with me? This overwhelming feeling of anger was growing as I became frustrated with my own weakness...

This body of mine was no longer working anymore, there was no longer a place for me here. The only thing that was keeping me whole was Luna, she was the only reason why I enjoyed being human for a while. My emotions were now taking control over me as I leaned myself closer to her lips. These lips of hers that I’ve been kissing almost every day, it all ends here...

Shutting my eyes, I pressed my lips so lightly against hers one last time. Her light breathing made me want to hold her so close to me as I felt my eyes beginning to water. Was I in this much pain that even my body was starting to ache for her? Re-opening my eyes, all I saw was a blur. I was crying, and I couldn’t stop these tears from coming down. Is this what it feels like being heartbroken? If so, I don’t wish for my Luna to go through any of this! I know I can’t prevent whatever happens to her, but I would rather go through any brutal punishment than have my love go through what I am feeling!

It’s like having your whole existence being ripped away from you. So I automatically held her hand and noticed how much I was shaking with fear. I’m afraid, I’m scared to leave her alone. Not being able to hold her when she cries, not being able to protect her when she’s in pain. I’m trying to avoid these thoughts running through my mind but I can’t help it. So I hope with all my well-being that she will wear this ring forever! Gripping her hand one last time, I slowly and painfully let her go. If she ends up hating me over this, then I’ll accept it. Just as long she doesn’t forget about me. As I began to walk out of her room, I made sure to stop midway through the door before turning myself around to look at Luna one last time...

“Goodbye, my beloved...”
