Chapter 1 - Sophie

Iโ€™m running. Running away from my mistakes. More specifically my elvin life. Iโ€™m now Allison Miller, a 27-year-old, a grown adult. A new name, a new career, and a new home. I now live in America and attend Southern California University.

Am I happy?

No.

Iโ€™m not broke- yet. I distract myself. Every. Single. Day. 4 years to be exact.

Iโ€™m a model and a student. Elves are jaw- dropping gorgeous, right? Well, I guess I am for sure. Whenever I look in the mirror, I see Councillor Oralie- my mother. Weโ€™re basically identical. Except for my eyes and hair.

Iโ€™m pretty sure that all my friends had given up on me- they have nothing to worry about, since the Neverseen were gone. They were dead. All my fault. I blew up half of Atlantis.

They were dead.

Including all the people over there.

Including Grady and Edaline.

I have nightmares.

Every day. My agenda was: Wake. Work. Sleep. Repeat. And donโ€™t embrace the guilt.

Today was day 87, year 4, and it was 8:48 pm

Iโ€™m sitting on a white stool at my black marble counter working on complicated math equations for my math class. I have on my black wayfarer glasses and have my hair in a messy bun. After this I have to make dinner.

I sighed and looked down at my outfit. Iโ€™m in pjs. Iโ€™m wearing a light blue airy crop top that had a small black heart in the middle and I also had on NIKE, black shorts.

I checked my phone- which I recently got, and I declined more requests on my Instagram page. Which took quite a while to inasmuch that there were so many.

I put my phone down and sighed again.

Iโ€™m done.

I got up from my stool and grabbed my math papers and made it over to my window seat where my backpack was waiting for me. I stuffed my papers in my navy blue rucksack backpack. I opened the front pocket and threw my glasses in it, and I tossed my backpack on the black and white cushions. I ambled over to my modern kitchen, which was also black and white- my house was modern.

I threw my day-old vegetarian pasta in the microwave. I checked my phone again and saw the request again.

Great.

โ€ฒI scrolled down, which took some time. I decided I wonโ€™t even bother denying all of those requests, so I changed my account to public. I grabbed my hot pasta, a water bottle and sat on my white couch and turned on a random show on my huge flat screen tv. โ€ฒ

* * * *

After I finished my dinner, I washed the dishes and swept the floor. I headed to my bathroom and brushed my teeth, avoiding my face in the mirror because I didnโ€™t want to see my face. I headed to my bedroom where Ella was waiting for me. Ella was the only thing keeping me from losing my sanity. I got in bed, clutching Ella, waiting for my dreams to annihilate me.

โ€œSOPHIE! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!โ€ Fitz yelled over the deadly fire consuming us, separating him, and me.

โ€œPutting an end to this,โ€ I panted, wiping the sweat off my forehead as I scrambled finding the right pocket where I had put the bombs. I knew what to do. โ€œFitz, get EVERYONE out of here!โ€

โ€œBut, Sophie-โ€

โ€œGET THEM OUT OF THE BUILDING!โ€

โ€œSophie no,โ€ Fitz hissed trying to reach me. โ€œYouโ€™ll die,โ€

โ€œI wonโ€™t, Fitz,โ€ I assured him and turned around to face him. I know he will not let me off that easily. โ€œGet Keefe, Dex, Biana, Tam and the bodyguards OUT OF HERE,โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t know about this, Sophie,โ€ Fitz said, trying to step forward but the fire that Fintan had created was way too hot.

โ€œFitz, stop wasting time!โ€ I yelled, anger bubbling in my stomach. Doesnโ€™t he trust me? โ€œYou trust me, right?โ€

โ€œYeah, but-โ€

โ€œTRUST ME!โ€

โ€œFINE! Iโ€™ll GO!โ€ Fitz yelled incandescently. โ€œYouโ€™ll regret this! The building will explode because of YOU and with YOU in it! Letโ€™s just follow Mr. Forkleโ€™s directions!โ€

โ€œI have a plan to get out! I promise, okay?โ€ I argued as I continued looking for the bombs. โ€œMeet me at Everglen,โ€

โ€œLetโ€™s follow Mr. Forkleโ€™s directions,โ€ Fitz repeated

โ€œFitz. Listen to me. The Neverseen has killed way too many people. Ruined Keefeโ€™s life. I canโ€™t let that happen to anyone else,โ€ I said, not meeting his eyes. โ€œMeet me at Everglen. When everyone else is safe, transmit to me. I have a plan.โ€

โ€œIโ€™ll get everyone out! Okay?โ€ Fitz said, narrowing his eyes and turning around. โ€œJust come backโ€

โ€œI will,โ€ I reassured him as he ran away from me in the tower in which they were in. A tower full of all the members of the Neverseen.

I coughed- the smoke affecting my lungs

I found the bombs- finally

There were two types of bombs, one in each of my hands. I looked back and forth. I forgot which one was which.

I searched my memory, but the smoke was making me disoriented.

I coughed again, water in my eyes made it hard to see, Iโ€™m losing my balance.

SOPHIE? WEโ€™RE OUT!

I dropped the bombs in my hands in the fire- in shock of the loud reverberation in my head; out, out, out.

Beeb, beeb, beeb

The bombs were active- the fire. I ran towards the towerโ€™s window- I was on the top floor.

What was happening?

I felt a thousand shards of glass against my body. I felt a crushing pain all over my body, my face felt like it was melting off, blood trickled down the side of my face.

I tasted blood.

The disgusting metallic taste coated my mouth like someone was spreading jam made of blood. At the same time, I felt like my lunges could live again. Sweet, congenial, endurable air filled my lunges. Air pushed against my face as I fell out of the tower. I concentrated and a void split in front of me. I thought of Everglen; the grayness split with a flash of light and I dropped through it and I fell onto the soft grass of Everglen.

โ€œSOPHIE!โ€ I heard Keefeโ€™s voice, and I struggled to get up. Pain was still searing through my entire body. Two brawny arms pulled me up- Keefe. โ€œSophie are y-you okay?โ€

I nodded meekly, but quickly regretted it when pain shot behind my neck.

โ€œNo, sheโ€™s not!โ€ Fitz yelled as I opened my half-closed eyes and leaned on Keefe.

Great! Now heโ€™s mad.

โ€œIโ€™ll get to Elwinโ€ Keefe said and picked me up- bridal style.

I was drifting off in Keefeโ€™s arms as everyone around me asked the same questions.

โ€œWhat happened?โ€

โ€œOMG! Is she okay?โ€

*Time skip*

โ€œYOU KIDS CANโ€™T DO WHAT I SAY THATโ€™S WHY!โ€ Mr. Forkleโ€™s voice ringed through my ears.

I winced.

โ€œI told her to listen!โ€ Fitz yelled. โ€œI knew this would happen!โ€

โ€œFitz itโ€™s okay she was in the fire,โ€ Keefe said, who had dark circles under his eyes and put a hand on Fitzโ€™s shoulder. Fitz scooted away from Keefe on the couch.

โ€œITโ€™S SOPHIEโ€™S FAULT! Everyone is dead!โ€

It was my fault. Iโ€™m-

โ€œNot everyone,โ€ Keefe argued calmly

โ€œWho cares? She killed off half of Atlantis!โ€ Fitz yelled he narrowed his eyes at me, I was so close to tears. โ€œThis. Is. All. Your. Fault.โ€

Fault. Fault. Fault.

I jolted awake, โ€œNO!โ€

I dropped back on my bed and looked at the ceiling as tears dropped from my eyes, leaking down on both sides of my head entering my hair. I shifted to one side and clutched Ella as hard as I ever did. I buried my head in Ella and cried to sleep.

Iโ€™m okay

Okay

Not my fault

Stay for Grady and Edaline

They love you

Not my fault.
