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.

            The world around me is a muddle-a blur of endless colors and swirls, twirling and twisting until I have lost my train of thought, only concentrating on the blank pages ahead of me. My life was an open book, as if I have no control over who, where, or what happens in my world. I already know this, though. If I had even just a smidgen,  a fraction of control over my life, I would bring my daughter back.  I would sacrifice anything, even myself, just to see her sweet face once more. To hold her small, soft body in my arms, cuddle her when she cries, and wipe the crystal tears from her blue, blue eyes. I can wish all I want, with all my heart, but nothing will bring her back. As long as I have lived with my grief, I know that nothing can fill the hole in my heart. Except..No, I cannot think like that. I could be replacing my daughter! "But-"  A small, very small part of me told me to let someone in. Maybe, it would be alright. Maybe, just maybe, it wouldn't be bad to feel once more. Arrow was a distraction, a source of affection. I realize that now, because with his betrayal, our "love" was shattered. The illusion was over, and the ugly truth has reared his head. Arrow, I now know, was nothing but a distraction, an excuse to be loved. I know that now. Though my heart is shattered, it is possible to pick up the pieces. Yes, I know this! It is possible, but I need help. I need...help.

          When I first opened my eyes, all I could see was the blue sky above me. Groaning, I rolled over, rubbing the back of my head. It felt sore, and I briefly remembered Arrow, no, Darren now, slamming my head into the wall. Gripping on to the nearest tree, I tried to stand. My hands pushed upward, and I held onto the fragile bark as best I could. Almost there, I told myself, "Just up a bit more." I straightened out my back as best as I could without letting go, before trying to transfer my weight from my knees to my feet. A bit higher and..yes! I managed to grab a hold of a small branch, drooping down towards the ground. Praying that the branch wouldn't snap, I finally pushed myself up into a standing position.

         Pain. Pain and dizzying colors were flying around me, Still holding onto my branch for dear life, I tried to shake away some of the initial shock, but to no avail. Gasping, I slowly let go of the branch, and imminently crashed back towards the ground. I prepared myself for the impact, tightening my stomach and curling inwards. But, the impact never came. My head wasn't cracked on the large rock below me, and as far as I know, I wasn't bleeding. I tilted my head, trying to see what had caught me. All I could see was tanned skin, and I relaxed. It was only Marcus. "Marcus, I'm sorry that I broke down like that. So much has happened lately, and with Arrow being Darren and the-" I paused for a moment, taking a deep breathe before continuing "And the memories of Eliza. I'm sorry that I didn't realize your feelings, and how much you got hurt because of me. I'm sorry, Marcus." The warm hands around my middle dissapeared, and I leaned once more against the rough bark of the tree. 

       "In truth, Marcus, I think...I love you too. But," Without looking up, a put my hand in front of him. "I want..to take it slow. I can't do this more than one step at a time." "That's fine by me baby." My mouth fell open, and I jerked my gaze upwards. This-this isn't Marcus! "Miss me, babe?" Arrow grinned
