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.

   Me and Marcus sat there for quite some time, just holding each other. Neither of us wanted to break the silence. I sighed. I had so much already to deal with, finding a new home, racing for plan XXY-Wait, the plan! I jumped up and pushed Marcus away. "Marcus! Why didn't you remind me about plan XXY?! We have to get going right away, we've already lost 3 days with all of this drama! He could be there right now! Why didn't you tell me, I would've snapped out of this!' "Well, maybe I didn't tell you because I have a life threatening disease eating me alive and you just confessed feelings for me? Oh, and let's not mention dropping the bomb about..Eliza."  I winced as his words cut through me, but shook them off. "Yeah.." I rubbed the back of my head. "Sorry 'bout that. But," I paused "I think we should shut all of this" I waved my hand between the two of us. "Until the mission is completed. We can sort this out then. OK?" 

    There was a bit of an awkward silence. I don't know if I'll be able to keep my feelings at bay for that long, but I'll try. This is for the good of Pangaea. "Alright." Marcus's gruff voice shocked me out of my thoughts, and I nodded curtly. Swallowing hard, I stuck out my hand. "Shake on it?" was my lame attempt at some comic relief. To my surprise, however, Marcus chuckled and shook my hand in a soft, yet very firm grip. I smiled. Finally, we had some control over our lives. Forget 'bout the virus, forget about the drama. We need to focus on the task at hand. Just as I was about to ask where we should get supplies, I heard a blood curling shriek. 

     Marcus and I shared a look, before darting off in the direction of the sound. It wasn't too far from here, and we ran like lightning. Quickly, I reached into my back pocket and pulled out my dagger. Marcus raced ahead of me, and got there before I did. "Wait up!" I called. Marcus stopped abruptly, and I crashed into his back. "Hey-" My voice died out as I peeked around his broad shoulders. What I saw nearly made me vomit. 

     A corpse sat in the center of a ring of blood, already surrounded by bugs and maggots. I took a small step forward, and tried to inspect the body. Vicious stab wounds covered his chest, and I could see blue veins protruding out. I gagged, and stepped backward.  Marcus stepped forward, and turned the body over onto it's back. I doubled over, and tried to calm my upset stomach. A message was carved into the back of the boy(?). It said "Ade, Do you like my present?" Tears welled up in my eyes, and I furiously swept them away and stalked forward. I'm determined to find out who this person was. I took a giant step forward, and gently moved the body back so it was face up. Ignoring the blood that my hands were now covered in, I moved the head to it's side. The half that had faced us had been completely torn off, exposing the muscle and tissue while hiding the identity of the victim. 

        I gasped, and scrambled backwards, away from the corpse. The blonde hair, the vacant green eyes. Sparrow! I turned around and promptly vomited all over the ground. Clutching my stomach, I crawled away from the sick and the body. Memories of the annoying little trainee flashed over and over in my mind. When he was first brought in, dirty and with shifting eyes. When he told the truth about me and Arrow.  Though I didn't know the boy on a very personal level, it still hurt to see a friend's life slip between your fingers. 

      "Ade..." I looked up long enough to see the stricken look on Marcus's face. "There's something you need to see." I nodded, before pushing to my feet. My shoulders sagged as I made my way over to where Marcus was. There, written in blood, was the message. "The game's begun."
