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.

17. Screw you, Andrew.

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

        "Where is that slut sister of mine, and the Ice Queen Bitch?" I hissed. My anger knew no bounds. It was open season. I raised my arm to hit him once more, when a warm hand gripped my wrist in a death lock. "Ade, what the hell are you doing? Who is this boy?" I detected a bit of...jealously in Marcus voice? I snarled, before getting to my feet. "He's nothing, just scum from the past." I turned and began walking away, intending to leave the matter at that. "I'm not scum! I'm your brother, Adella!" I froze, before slowly turning around. I could feel my eyes burning, betraying my intense hatred. Andrew gulped, and fear crept into his eyes. "You were never my brother. That bond was shattered the day Eliza died." My voice was soft, but carried a deadly tone that made Marcus and Andrew flinch backwards. I turned away, my footsteps creating a soft whoosh that echoed through the small room.  

           "Adella, I'm still your brother.." His voice trailed. I sighed, before facing him and Marcus. "Do you not get it? The moment when I needed you most, you weren't  there for me. You don't even have an excuse-you abandoned me. Anything I felt for you-trust, love, the hope that you would one day be my big brother-was shattered the instant you turned me away. This is your fault. In the span of 2 days, I had lost everything. Yet you still took my last ounce of hope-and crushed it between your fingers with no remorse. Why would you care now?" I paused. "I have nothing left to say to you." 

          I reached out and took Marcus' hand in my own. Wordlessly, I began to drag him towards the door. We were leaving-now. In one swift movement, I swept up all our supplies into my back pack, and swung it over my shoulder. "We're leaving." My voice cut through the tense air, and with the nod from Marcus, I walked out the door and into the dark woods. I stalked forward, easily side stepping the dangers and tree roots. "Ade-" "Don't." I cut him off. "I don't need your pity." My harsh words echoed through the woods. Suddenly, the sound of rushing water broke through the uncomfortable silence. Unconsciously, I began to move forward, brushing away the vines in order to get a better view.

       I gasped, awed by the beauty of the site before me. A large waterfall, surrounded by ancient flowers and basked in moonlight, stood proud. A small pond  extended from the fall of deep, ocean blue water, while scattered fireflies danced in the darkness. It was as if someone had yanked a scene from a fairy tale, and plastered it proudly for the world to see.  For me to see. In an instant, I was closer, touching the water lightly. I was afraid that if I was too rash, it would disappear, and be reveled to be nothing more then an illusion. 

         Ripples floated across the surface as I lightly dragged my hand across. I sighed. It was so serene here, so soothing and calm. It was as if the corrupt Council did not exist, that the missing persons had been found. "Do I...?" I whispered softly. "Ade.." I jumped, broken out of the trance the waterfall had produced. "I'm...going to look for food. It might be a while." I nodded, eager to go back to my state of peace from before.  It was late August, and the warm days were soon fading into cold, damp nights. But with the moon shining down on me, I felt as though I didn't have a care in the world. 

        Slowly, I turned around, checking the area out for Marcus or any other prying eyes, before stripping down and laying my clothes in a neat pile.  Carefully, I stepped around the thick brush and flowers, being careful not to disturb any piece of this magical place. The water was cool, and immediately brought relief from the sweltering heat and humidity.  I sighed, and sank deeper into the pool. My hair drifted around me in lazy circles, and I tipped my head backwards-just enough-to wet my roots. I washed away the dirt, grime, and sweat which had come to be a permanent stain on my skin. I gazed upward, shocked at just how bright the moon looked. I closed my eyes, the image of the moon, big and bright, plastered to my eyelids.  I let out a deep breathe, and let my conciousness fade into the moonlit night.

   "Boss, she's by herself right now. Do you want me to remove her?" The little pest of a girl and her friend zoned pussy sidekick was going in to far, finding out things they didn't need to know. They need to keep their noses out of our business. I glanced upward at my boss. He was staring intently at the spot where the girl was.  "What's wrong? Lemme see-" "No."  He cut me off, and looked back to me. "We will get her...later." I said in a gruff voice. "Alright." I replied, still a bit unsure. What was he was planning. "This girl...isn't human." The announcement nearly knocked me off my feet and reveled my position. If she wasn't human, what the hell was she?
