Pangaea* (Under revision!)

50.5 million years into the future, and Earth has reverted back to it's original state-the super continent of Pangaea. A new country is born, learning from past mistakes. A girl, riddled with sadness but an unknown power. A boy, with a silver spoon in his mouth and pockets full of money. This infant country is, however, surrounded by war and death, and both boy and girl are no exception. When a government plot threatens to overthrow everything they hold dear, Adelle and Marcus must search themselves to decide what's right.


6. Arrow!







              Grumbling, I kicked at the small pebbles lining the walkway back towards camp. Sparrow had some nerve talking to me like that! How dare he bring up my past, he knows nothing! Nothing at all! After I fell asleep, Marcus had brought me back to my tent. I had training once more with Sparrow, and he was the same as always. Typical. Biting my lip, I plunked down on a large rock. Ignoring the sharp prick of pain that came from sitting on a rock, I let my thoughts wander. Marcus...Arrow. Sparrow, Huh, they rhythm...I didn't notice. So different though...just like Andrew and Penelope. Andrew was so funny, always making me laugh with that goofy smile of his...Wait, what am I doing? I should be hating them! But, even when I can easily remember the bad things, it's just too hard to forget the good. Like when I was little, and Mama, not Mother, was there. We'd bake together in our old kitchen, with the worn down wooden counter tops, and the fading butter yellow walls. Papa always said we'd repaint someday, with maybe a nice blue, or a light purple. 

              Papa. I miss him so much. Your such a coward, you couldn't even swallow your shame until his funeral! You didn't even say goodbye, you selfish slut. No wonder Marcus didn't want you, no one does.  I tried to ignore the little voice, but as the salty tears ran down my face, I couldn't control myself. I fell to the ground, scraping my knees in the process. I couldn't feel the pain, my mind was focused on the gaping hole in my heart. Slowly, I curled into my turtle shell. My turtle shell, Andrew's nickname for my small little shell. "No! Why, why won't this endless pain leave me? Why me? What did I do to deserve this?!" I screamed. "I don't want to remember!" In an instant, I was on my feet, breathing heavily. I need to talk to the only one who knows about my past. Arrow. 

            Racing past the training group that had just been let out, I made my way over to Arrow's cabin. Wiping the tears from my eyes, I ignored the stares and questions thrown my way. "Ade, what are doing? Ade.." Marcus paused as he took in my disheveled state. My clothes were, undoubtedly, wrinkled beyond repair, and I was certain my hair was a rats nest. Suddenly feeling self conscious  I tried to smooth out my shirt. "Have you seen Arrow?" I bit my lip, Marcus didn't know anything about my past. I refused to speak to anyone for a whole month, and only Arrow knew about my past.  

              'Yeah, he's in his room...Ade, what's wrong?" Ignoring his last question, I raced past him. "Thanks Marcus!" Navigating through the crowd, I burst into Arrows room. "Oh, hey Ade..Ade? What's wrong baby?" Sobbing into his shoulder, I explained everything. When I was done, I noticed that we were now sitting on his bed. "Ade, how could you ever think that I wouldn't want you?" Staring deep into my eyes, Arrow pulled me closer, and kissed me. I sighed, and leaned into him. This felt so right..until I felt a hand creep up my blouse. "Arrow!" I smacked him upside the head, but he didn't stop. 

               A cold shiver ran down my back as I tried to push him off of me. "Come on, we've been together for..." I gaped at him. How could he not know how long we were together?!?! I squirmed under him, trying to push him off. "No! I said no, Arrow!" He wasn't listening. Gritting my teeth, I tried to ignore the disgusting sensation of his lips on my neck. I only had one shot..YES! I brought my knee up hard, and managed to hit him in between the legs. I quickly pushed him off of me, and stood up, breathing hard. "What is wrong with you?! I said no!" Arrow didn't reply, he just stalked towards me with a certain glint in his eyes. "What are you going to do? You have no one here who even likes you, you stuck up bitch. I gave you everything, yet you can't give me this?" Arrow snarled. "I-I'll tell the camp what you did! They'll throw you out for sure!" Arrow just laughed, throwing his head back.

           "And why would they believe you, and not me? After all, If I let it slip about your past..." I gasped, he wouldn't dare. "I mean, come on! Your such a coward, running away like that. Not to mention saying things like that to your mother, of all people! Then of course, the fact that now your a weak link is out, some members might want to snap the chain." Growling, I pulled out my sword and charged. I hit his thigh, and in seconds he was on the ground bleeding. "I'm leaving," I announced  "I can't believe that only now, I saw your true colors." I said, strutting towards the door. "Wait, what about plan XXY? You do want revenge, don't you?" I hesitated, before turning back to his crumpled form.  "I'll do it on my own, I don't need you." "Alright, but care to make a wager before you go?" I snorted. "Your in no condition to be making bargains, captain." 

          "Just hear me out, OK.  If our group can complete plan XXY, you return to me and my bed." I raised an eyebrow. As if! "And if I win?" "Then you get control of the camp. I'll step down-and you'll get the credit for taking down the corrupt government." Arrow spat on the ground, as he always did when he brought up the government." I debated over whether or not to take up his offer. It was a huge risk to take, but I can't stay here. Not after..."Alright." Arrow's head snapped up, clearly he hadn't thought I'd agree. "But I'm taking Marcus, so tell him he needs to pack. Say nothing of this mission to him." I commanded Arrow. I don't think Marcus will go if only I tell him too. Or worse, He'll be on Arrow's side.

          "There's no need for that, Captain. I've heard more than enough, and I've made my decision." I felt my jaw drop, and as I turned around slowly, I was flabbergasted to see Marcus! "How much did you..." He had heard us....Will he leave me?!
