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.


11. Turning Point.






               (Marcus POV.)  I needed to clear my mind. After our...kiss, Ade has passed out. Stupid, Stupid! You should have waited until she was ready. Why, why did I have to ruin what we had in a moment of pure and utter impulse? I scolded myself, before hoping over a large tree root. I had gone out for a walk, to try and figure out what to do to fix this. "Ade, I swear, it meant nothing..I was trying to get you to snap out of it." Sighing, I knew I had to be getting back. Changing direction, I turned back around. As I walked, I took note of the forest around me.

                The green was bright, unusual for Autumn. A sea of shimmering red, gold, and brown leaves made a colorful tarp above me, while the amazing blue sky peeked out from huge, white puffy clouds. The blue matched Ade's eyes perfectly... The thought popped into my head without warning. Why, does this have to hurt so much?  The pain of knowing that She'll never love me back. This heartache, why me? I have enough to worry about..Shaking my head, I pushed the morbid thoughts away, and concentrated on getting back before dark. As I reached the outskirts of our camp, I heard voices.

            More than one, to be exact. "Marcus, I think...I love you too. But," There was a bit of a pause, but the shock was overwhelming. She loves me?! But, who is she talking too? "I take it slow. I can't do this more than one step at a time." "That's fine by me baby." My gaze narrowed, I knew this voice. Just as I was about to reveal myself, I heard an ear piercing scream, one that echoed for miles. "Ade!"  


          (Ade's POV.) I gulped as Arrow stalked towards me, like an animal who had found it's prey. I walked backwards, nearly crying out from the pain erupting inside my head. The world around me spun in circles, a haze of green, red, brown, and gold. I stumbled, and almost screamed as my ankle twisted underneath me. I fell backward, and slammed into the ground with a loud thud. "What's wrong honey, didn't you miss me? Maybe your just out of sorts, since I didn't even have to touch you to get you down." Arrow stood over me, blocking out the sun and creating a long, twisting shadow across the rough grass. I cringed, hating feeling so weak. I tried to kick out, knock Arrow off his feet. I wasn't that lucky.  Arrow easily blocked my weak kick, and let out a heart wrenching laugh. Fury boiled up inside me.

          This man had the audacity to laugh at me-at us- after everything we've been through! Screaming, I lunged for him, tackling him instantly. With a new surge of energy, I clawed at his face, punching with all my might. Screw Strategy, this was revenge. With a clear shot at his face, I brought my fist down once more, leaving black and blue bruises. In my fury, I hadn't realized how much damage I'd done. I didn't care, he deserved this. Suddenly, I heard a distinct thud. The gun! It was in my back pocket. Reaching backwards, without letting go of my hold on Arrow, I pulled the gun out.

         It was a small thing, hardly enough to be considered a weapon. But it would do the job. Slowly, I put the gun to Arrows head, resting it just below his temple. The cool metal was surreal, and almost felt soothing. With one movement, one push, this could be over. My troubles could be over, and I could have a life with Marcus. I could see us, having children and growing old together. I took a deep, trembling breath, before moving my finger so it rested on the trigger. But I still hesitated.

          Could I do this? Take another's life so easily? Especially when it's him. "Just do it already!" Arrow sneered. My grip on the gun shook, and I struggled to hold it steady.  Tears cascaded down my cheeks as I looked into the face of the man I had once loved. "I can't-" I stopped. "I can't do this!" Tossing the gun aside, I leaned into Arrow, still holding him in a pinned position. "I still love you, how is this possible?!" I screamed into his shoulder.  

        "How is it possible to love both of you? My affections are like a ball, bouncing between the players on opposite teams." My lips trembled as I bit back a scream of frustration. I needed to get a grip, but this seems so hard, so impossible.For now, I'll..let myself have this. One final goodbye. Brushing the hair out of Arrow's mahogany brown eyes, I examined his injuries. His lip was torn and bleeding, and  bruises bloomed all on his face. A nasty cut was stationed right about his right eye, and I couldn't help but reach out. "Why am I so stupid?" I whispered. I have the chance right now to end this, to end Arrow's life, but I couldn't do it. I still loved him. All of the sudden, I was on my back, with Arrow towering over me.

        "Boo..." he said softly, looking deep into my eyes. Boo. Suddenly, I was thrust into a flashback. "Heya Boo-Bear!" said Darren from behind me. "Whatcha making?" I laughed, Darren was like a little kid sometimes. I'm sure he'll make a great dad. Smiling, I looked down at my growing tummy. I was about 7 months now, and me and Darren decided to fine out what the sex is tomorrow, since we weren't sure until now if we wanted to know. I hope it's a girl! I felt warm arms come wrap themselves around my middle, and soft lips kissing along the curve of my neck. "What are you thinking about?" I didn't want to ruin the moment by speaking. In fact, I wanted to stay in Darren's arms forever if possible. Gently, I lifted my hand a place it on my stomach. Darren seemed to understand. I was so happy, just being in his arms. It made me wonder about our future, and what was to come. I'm sure it will be perfect. "I love you Boo-Bear" "I love you too..."   


       Tears once more weld up in my eyes. How could this have gone so wrong? "Darren.." "Get away from her!" In an instant, the weight on top of me was gone, Arrow no where to be found. I sat up quickly, forgetting about my now once more pounding head. The adrenaline was gone, and I was as sleepy as ever. I lied down, seeing fuzzy spots in the foliage around me. I closed my eyes, and tried to drown out the noises of the fight. I couldn't even muster up enough energy to speak, give encouragement to Marcus. Time seemed to fly by, and in an instant, Marcus was leaning over me. "Ade, are you alright?!" All I could do was nod as he helped me into a sitting position. Looking at him, I could now see some minor injuries. A split lip, bruised jaw, nothing serious. He was OK. Letting out a sigh of relief, I leaned on his shoulder. "Ade, you scared me! You should have called for help, or something-" Marcus stopped short, and I looked up to see what was the matter.


        Marcus gasped, before pushing me away and doubling over. "Marcus, what's wrong? Are you hurt? Let me see!" I tried to push past his arms, but I was still weak. Suddenly, Marcus heaved once more before coughing up a familiar green substance. I gasped, and instinctively moved back, trying to get myself as far away as possible. Marcus has the virus!
