Hiding in the Shadows

My name is Dani and I am almost 20. When I was little, I was marked above my collar bone. Everyone says that it's aliens, and so does my boyfriend Pj. He has the same mark but it's on the knuckle of his thumb. My best friend Bo has been here for her whole life too and is still single. This is my story.

8. It's not what I expected

Pj was in our room when I returned. "Where have you been?" I asked curiously. "I could ask you the same." He replied in a teasing way. I kept the door open, so I could escape if I got angry again. "Where, where were you?" He asked in a more, serious way. "No where." I replied turning away. Then Elias stormed in all cut up. "Whoa, man what happen to you?" Pj asked. "Let me tell you! One time, this is the one time I'm warning you! If you ever touch her again, you won't ever be able to touch anything again!" He shouted. "Um, Elias?" Bo called quietly from the hallway. Two middle aged adults were standing outside our door. One female with long black hair and a male with very short brown hair. They both had grey eyes and pale skin. Elias slipped out and washed the blood off of himself and went with the family. As they walked away, Bo shot me a look over her shoulder. The cold stare lasted till I turned away. "I'm so sorry." I whispered as I turned towards Pj. "Why? Because you attacked your best friend AND her boyfriend?" He said angrily. "What? Because that ass just took her away from me because I'm TO strong? Because I'm smarter than him? Because I survived the mist and his sister didn't?" His face went from angry to almost a sad. "I thought you died." "I thought I did too." He stood up and put his hands on my cheeks and his forehead against mine. "You don't understand. I love you. More than you even know. Something with what's wrong with us made it that way and I don't even know how to describe it." I didn't even know. I knew I felt the same. "I know. I feel it too. The tingling in our marks when we're near. Never knowing what's next. The insanity in my mind when I'm near you." Suddenly the room went cold. The vibrations between us were flat. He had backed up pulling me behind him. Swirly purple columns rising around us. "No!!" I screamed thinking about Pj. I shoved myself in front of him and closed my eyes in concentration. The coolness from the mist filled me and the outside became warm and I could feel the vibrations again. My body collapsed to the ground as the cold turned to stinging. I was paralized and slowly dying. "I... love... you..." I choked before it all went blank. 

 

       I woke up in a bed with cords hooked up to me and machines blinking and a TV playing. Twitching my finer, I found the thing for my pulse. "Where... am... I?" I said slowly even though I didn't know if anyone was in the room. Someone stroked my hair and I turned. Pj was sitting next to me with a "I'm so sorry" look. "I can't be in a hospital. No. This isn't fair. No!" I shouted. "Sh, you're ok." He calmed. "No they'll do tests on me! I'll b-" I was cut of by his lips pressed to mine. I put my hand on the back of his neck and pulled him down further. My fingers were locked in his hair as he kissed me. He pulled back and looked at me. "What?" I asked. "No. I can't" He replied. "Can't what?" "Pretend that it doesn't kill me when the damn mist comes into the picture." "Look it's not like I died. I'm fine, I feel fine." He left the room and I heard him leave. I couldn't stand that he was upset. 

 

        I sat there. Waiting. But he didn't come back. All of the sudden I felt sick. Like throwing up. I ran to the bathroom and threw up. "Pj..." I choked. All of the sudden this sharp pain struck inside me. A shriek escaped my lips. Then I realized. I'm a virgin. I never had sex to get me pregnant. So how the hell am I pregnant?! There was knock on the door and I hoped it was a nurse. "Can I come in?" A familiar voice called. "Pj." whispered. "Come in!" I yelled. "Dani? Where... oh. Oh my gosh are you ok?!" He asked. "I think I'm... pregnant." I said. "What? That's impossible." "I know but somehow...the mist." I whispered. "Why would mist get you pregnant?" "It wanted me to die. But I didn't. It wanted you to die, but I took it from getting you. It wants a piece of me, oh my gawd it's gonna kill her!" I yelled. I shrieked again as the pain grew stronger. "This child is growing. And fast." I said as I clutched my stomach. "Here!" He handed me a pair of sweatpants and a sweater for me to change into. Quickly I went into the bathroom and changed. We left the hospital, checked out and all, and head to the hotel. He packed our things and we left. "Where are we going?" I ask, my teeth chattering. "We need somewhere for you to be safe." He clutched my free hand and dragged me through crowds. He pulled me behind a fence. His old house. Another sharp pain struck causing me to scream in agony. "She's upset." I cried as I curled up in a ball clenching my stomach. "What's she doing to you?!" Pj asked trying to get me up. He picked me up and brought me inside through the broken window. "Here." He set me in his bed and tucked me under the covers. Quickly I fell asleep under the warmth. I'd get terrible strikes and I knew it wasn't my baby. The mist remained making sure she would die. I couldn't let her. I knew she was a girl, I could just feel it. She was hurting because I was, I was killing her. "No.." I cried. "NO!" Pj rushed in shaking me. My eyes opened but were all blurry from tears. "It's hurting me... the mist... it's hurting me and I'm killing her!" I cried. He sat next to me and I cried into his chest. 

 

Pj's POV

Pregnant? Pregnant?! What could this thing do to her?! I wanted it, but I couldn't let it hurt my girl. She started to scream so I rushed in to find her weeping heavily. I let her cry as I cradled her. Soon she fell back asleep. Her stomach already had started to bulge and I knew it was growing fast.

 

        The next day she looked five months pregnant. She couldn't even walk. Most of the time she'd wake up crying to what the mist was doing to her and her baby. I felt terrible and there was nothing I could do. I wanted it as much as she did. In a period of four days she looked nine months. Her body was deteriorating and I knew she wouldn't deliver normally. After she delivered, her "immortal" thing would make her normal. 

 

Dani's POV

Great. I was huge.

 

        The worst pain imaginable stroke and she was ripping her way out. Everything inside me was torn to shreds. "Pj!" I shrieked at the top of my lungs. He ran in and nearly fainted at the blood poring out of me. "H...e...l...p... ME!" I screamed as more pain struck. "She can't get out! Do something!" The tears started poring out of me. He came back with a thingy from the first aid kit. He gave me a terrified and sad look before he cut me open even more. I shrieked as my body was ruined. Crying began and I saw my baby in his arms. I smiled. "Re...nae..." I choked as my vision went blurred. I felt the cold rush through me as it repaired me. It didn't take long till I was awake. "Pj. Renae." I said. Jumping out of bed, I ran out the door. "Pj!" I smiled and ran into his arms. "Hey babe." He whispered. He kissed me and then realized, our daughter. "How's our daughter?" I asked. "Perfect. She has your hair and eyes, my lips and nose." He smiled. "The mist made it hard for me, didn't it?" I asked. He turned around and picked a perfectly wrapped baby out of a crib. "May I?" I asked and took her from his arms. "Hi Renae," I smiled, "I'm your mom." Her face lit up and smiled. All teeth. She did grow more.
