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.


21. Marcus's POV (Been awhile, huh?)






        As I shoved the grimy, mud-covered wood onto the pile, I couldn't help but think of somewhere else, where someone else was waiting for my return. Mary Ann doesn't know that I'm not a soldier anymore, neither does Mom. Dad would be disgusted if he knew that after my injury, I left. PTSD, that's what the doc's said was wrong with me. Why I can't get rid of these goddamned nightmares, and look at rain or fireworks the same way. Gunshots. Blood. "Adrianna! Wait, wait! They didn't give the order to attack yet, what are you going?! "I'll be fine, Markie, just you wait. . ." BOOM! CRASH!"

      I shook my head furiously, trying to wipe away the image of my dead baby sister from my mind. She didn't wait! Mom was against her going, but Dad didn't care. He could care less about her! It's his fault! It was his mistress!  I took a deep breathe, and tried to focus on what we were going to do. Back in town, I'd seen a girl. . . who looked just like Ari. "Damn." I cursed. That one little girl had brought back years of suffering. It would set me back! 

       "Marcus!" I looked up and abruptly dropped the axe I was holding. "What are you doing?! You could have taken your left foot off!" Ade yelled, pointing at the spot where the axe had landed, only a few inches from my foot. I grinned sheepishly. "Sorry, you scared me." Ade snorted. "Yeah, yeah. Come on, we've got to get going." She glanced up at the sky. It was about 1:00. I frowned. "Why so soon?" Ade rolled her eyes. "Idiot, we should have left this morning, and it's after 12 already. This is a huge set back." "Oh." "Yeah, 'Oh'" Ade mimicked me. 

       I laughed. "Let's just keep moving. With luck, we'll reach the capital by next week. If, of course, neither of us die in the process."  She said dryly. "Hang on, where's your brother?" The blonde boy had been missing for a while now. "Damn! I was hoping we'd forget and he'd go away." I gaped at her. "That's not very nice." I muttered. "Well, neither is he."  

      "Whatever, let's just go find the little brat." Suddenly, there was a rustling in the bushes behind us. Me and Ade stopped walking abruptly. Sheepishly, Andrew (That's his name, right?" climbed out of the bushes, rubbing the back of his head. "Sorry, I had to-" "Let's just go." Ade cut through his sentence. I shivered-you could actually feel the ice coming off of her.  Without hesitating, I followed her, trying to keep up with her frantic pace. 

       "Jesus Ade, did you have to be so harsh?" I asked, keeping my voice low so that the klutz didn't hear us. "Yes, yes I did."  I snorted.  She could be so cynical sometimes. The tension between the siblings was so thick, you could probably cut it with a knife and serve it with toast. I sighed. Officially Day 1 of our trip, and it already was almost unbearable.  I heard a rustling coming from behind us. "Yo, Andy, is that you?" I called. This kid is starting to get on my nerves, I thought.

       "No, what are you talking about?" Frowning, I looked behind me. The kid was struggling to keep up, but he wasn't in the bushes. "Ade. . ." I began. Suddenly, I heard a gunshot ring out. "Oh god." I mumbled. The world was spinning around me. "Ari. Ari! ARI!" I screamed, before tripping and falling face-first in the mud. Vaguely, I heard Ade scream-"It's an ambush!"
