25. Twenty-Five.

“What are you doing?” Julia shouted.

I heard chains rattling and knew she was trying to get Graham lose. I knew it wasn't going to happen, and I knew they would die trying to get out. There was no stopping what was inevitable, just like this. This is what I was meant to do.

I suppose those missing girls would never be found after all.

“Yes they will,” Graham said weakly. “You're going to win this thing, Vivian. With or without us. Terry knew that. Terry had faith. I lost that somewhere along the line, but not for you. For myself. I always knew you'd make it. And you will get out of here and find those girls, because you were meant for bigger things than the monsters that stand before you.”

I turned and looked at him, at the bruises on his face, and the blood running from his lips. He smiled, red staining his teeth. Then he screamed.

I didn't realize what was happening until I saw a dark shadow hovering over him. It had pushed Julia out of the way, and was standing before Graham, lethal and angry.

“What are you?” I said. “Stop!”

Behind me, someone chuckled. “Just as I thought, this is much more entertaining than letting them go.” Jev was beside me in seconds, his hands touching my face.

“Get off,” I said, brushing his hand away. “What have you done?” I whispered.

“Me?” He feigned innocence. “This is what you wanted, Vivian. I could see it when I looked into your face. You knew you couldn't save them, so you wondered why I didn't just kill them.”

“No,” I said, shutting my eyes. “I don't want them dead.”

A familiar voice answered me. “You never wanted any of this. You used to be normal, until the day you died. Remember, we know what that's like. And what it's like to come back new. Don't worry, you didn't kill me. I would have died for you. For all of you. I guess I did.”

I opened my eyes and looked into Terry's face. Then I collapsed against him. “Is it really you?” I asked, trying hard not to start sobbing.

He nodded. “It's me. Mira did what she promised.”

I smiled. “We've got to get out of here.”

He looked at me, amber eyes dark again. “First things first,” he muttered. He grabbed my wrist and twisting it. Over my screaming, he said, “You really are foolish, aren't you?”

Jev smirked at me.

“Did you really think poor, stupid, half-dead Mira would help you? She doesn't have enough power to do that. Besides, I'd kill her before she even got started. You don't deserve your friend back. He was useless.”

“He wasn't,” I snarled, my fingers tingling. If I could just touch him, just once.

“You think you can stop me now that you've defied us?” He laughed and slapped me across the face. My head snapped to the side and I took a deep breath.

Before I could reply, something rumbled behind me and flew passed my head. It slammed into Jev, knocking him off his feet. It was part of the see-saw.

“You talk a lot,” Julia said, coming up beside me. She gripped my hand tightly. “I can help you.” She smiled. A cut on her forehead dripping blood onto her nose, but she didn't seem to care all too much.

Suddenly, the biggest surge of energy I've ever felt in my life shot through me. So much that it brought me to my knees.

“What is this?” I gasped.

“We're giving you our powers,” Julia said.

“We?” I asked, finally able to stand.

I looked around. When I didn't see anyone else, but felt someone grab my other hand, I was startled. But not as much as I was when I saw a familiar black-haired, amber-eyed man standing next to me.
