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.


7. Marcus....







                   "Marcus,how long were you there?!" I demanded. How much did he hear? How much he see? Realized that my shirt was torn, I crossed my arms over my chest, trying to protect what little dignity I had left. Seeing my slight movement, Marcus stalked towards me. Instinctively, I flinched. Marcus sighed lightly, and I couldn't help but watch the vivid firelight as it created shadows that danced across Marcus's dark skin. Smiling slightly, Marcus leaned towards me. I watched as he shrugged off his jacket-his worn leather one, which I had always secretly adored. In one fluid movement, the jacket was around me, protecting and shielding my torn clothes from prying eyes. 

           I glanced up at him, why would he stick by me? I was damaged goods-according to nearly everyone I met. Except...Marcus. Trying to calm my shaking nerves, I glanced around the cabin. Thick, worn, animal skin rugs covered an oak wood floor, polished to perfection. A stone fireplace sat against the far wall, while weapons such as swords, bow and arrows, and daggers hung on the walls nearby. A white sash was draped over the heavy, birch wood door. In Latin, the words proclaim the inhabitant of this cabin leader. I've heard rumors that the sash has been passed down for generations, but it looks pretty new to me.

            While I was studying the room, a deadly silence spread over the cramped space.  It's poison blanketed the room, giving a choking sensation. Timidly, I opened my mouth to ask Marcus once more, when Arrow held up a hand. I flinched, and Marcus pulled me too him, and adjusted himself so that he was standing in front of me.  "Well, isn't this just lovely?" sneered Arrow. "Now, if you'll excuse me, Sayre, (Marcus' last name) me and Ade were just talking..right, Ade?" I hid my face in between Marcus' shoulder blades. I was too ashamed to reply, let alone with my usual sass. I said no!

           Choking back a sob, i gripped Marcus tighter, and ignored him. "What's the matter, cat got your tongue?" Snarling, Marcus lunged toward Arrow. I held back a scream as I stood, paralyzed with fear as the two men grappled. "Ade-run!" It was like he was talking to me through a tunnel, with his voice echoing in my subconscious. I swayed as I watched Marcus land an upper cut maybe? Who knows, it worked. I sank to the floor, feeling numb all over. I could faintly hear Arrows moans of pain, as Marcus yanked me up and pulled me towards the door. 

            "Run away, just like you always did..." Turning, I stopped dead in my tracks. Confusion washed over me like a wave, without warning, taking away any other thought. Where, where had I head that before? In an instant, I remembered. My freedom, my fight. My deathly wound. No, it can't be! Darren...he can't be Arrow! And with that thought, I collapsed, ignoring Marcus's shouts. As I lay on the freezing ground, I couldn't help but smile faintly as the dim light above slowly faded towards black.




HIYA! I like this chapter....anyway, who remembers who Darren is? Ade's old boyfriend of course! He left without a word, and too bad, because they were engaged too. So, this means that jerkface Arrow is really Darren!  Tell me what you think, maybe a bit of some Marcus POV? I know you guys love him ;D Give me some feedback, and please no threats D: I guess Arrow didn't realize that Ade (Adella) would be back in his life sooner then he thought! 

As usual, my readers,

Write to ya'll later!
