19. Cities in Ruin

When I woke up I saw that Flit had already got up and left. I stretched and got up. I walked out of my room and smelled that Zander was cooking breakfast. I walked out to the kitchen to see that Flit was laying on the ground in the living room and was gnawing on a piece of meat. I walked over to Zander and he slid me a plate of food. My stomach rumbled at the sight of it and I pretty much inhaled everything.

"Morning." I said in between bites, Zander laughed.

"Good morning, I see someone was hungry."

"Starving." I replied.

"If you want more I can make more."

"No, its ok, thank you." I said to him.

"Trevor might wake up today just for a little though." Zander said. I nodded and got up and headed into Trevor's room. I opened the door and Lykos was laying next to him, resting his head next to Trevor.

"Lykos you're probably hungry. Go hunt or have Zander make you something ok?" I said to him. Lykos got up and started to leave, he hesitated for a moment and then turned to leave. I walked over to Trevor's bed and sat down . I held his hand and sigh.

"I'm so sorry this had to happen Trevor." I tried not to get emotional." God if only you could see how bad I felt.... We'll fix this. I know we will. Unless you wake up and its not worth it." I said, a single tear falling from my face. I grabbed the remote trying to forget what happened. Static popped and sizzled on the screen and I started to flip through channels to see if I could find a channel. My heart started to drop as each and every channel  went through was static and more static. When I finally got to a channel that work guilt set in and I finally knew what Zander was saying was right. A skinny dark haired girl was on the screen holding a microphone. She started talking about their town and how an earthquake had devastated the town and that it was in ruins. She then talked about how that was the only channel on the air. She talked about the other towns and how forest fires had taken out 3 cities. Then she showed on the bottom, pictures of other cities of Pandora, they kept the pictures rolling as they said they were going off the air and possibly never coming back on air. As they faded off the screen they kept the pictures rolling and the survivor to death ratio on the top. Each one had way more dead than alive on them and I knew that Pandora mortals were going to have to try and survive with almost nothing. One picture in particular made me want to be sick. On the top of the screen the survivor count was 0 and the death ratio was 100% the picture looked like it had been taken by a poor cellphone camera. It showed a city that was about to be completely be consumed by darkness, dark shadow warriors had come up from the ground and were running around killing whoever was left.

"I did that.... I'm a monster.." I cried and squeezed Trevor's hand as hard as I could. I wept and wept. I cursed Gabriel's name for ever giving me that horrid curse. Trevor started to stir and wake up. He clutched my hand back so hard his knuckles turned white and my hand felt close to breaking.

"No!" Trevor yelled and looked around the room rapidly.

"Hey!.. Hey its ok shush I'm here Trevor." I said to him getting up and trying to calm him down. "What? Hailee? Where are we?" Trevor asked.

"Were in your room and it's ok just calm down you're badly injured and still not fully healed." I said and he started to calm down and take in his surroundings.

"How did I get here? You were hurt and close to death how are you ok right now?" He said, reaching out for me and I let him grab hold of me and hold me close to him.

"I was but I'm ok now. And I got you back here so that Zander could heal you." I said setting my head on his chest.

"I'm so sorry I wasn't there to fight with you sooner." Trevor said playing my hair." I did tell you not to go after him though and did you listen?" He said and I sighed on reply.

"I'm sorry I thought I could save you both from fighting but obviously that didn't work out so well."

"You should have just let me go talk to him! And if it lead to us fighting then at least I wouldn't of had to worry about you getting hurt in the process to."

"But then you could have died, Trevor."

"Still." He said looking down at me, a pissed expression crossed his face.

"I'm sorry Trevor." I said hiding my face back in his shirt. He sighed,

"It's ok just don't scare me like that EVER again. I love you." He said cupping my face and kissing me. I kissed him back and remembered all the other times he kissed me like this. I missed him so much. I wrapped my arms around him and just kept kissing him. I stopped for a moment and whispered in his ear.

"I love you too Trevor." I said to him. He nodded and hugged me tighter. He kissed me for a little while longer before stopping abruptly and looking at the TV.

"What's that?" He asked

"Oh, those are the pictures that happen as a result of our fights." I said not looking up at the TV.

"No, I figured that we would have done damage. I meant what's the picture of the city with the darkness around it. We don't have that power so what is it?" He asked sitting up. I sighed and closed my eyes,

"Trevor I have something to tell you." I said before explaining how Gabriel had it before me before passing it to me and I explained how my physic powers were coming in and that I could see thing in my dreams but they should happen when I want to find out more as I get older. I told him me and Zander thought that he had the darkness as a curse to balance his immortality. I then explained that whenever I get a strong negative emotion the darkness over takes my fire element and my body.

"If I ever see his face again I'll kill him a second time just for that. It's one thing to not mean it when he gave you the darkness and to feel bad about it, but then to not tell any us. And LIE to my face? That's a whole different thing." He said to me.

"You will see him again at some point. Zander told me about how you had most of this planned out for when he does come back and how we will need to get hybrids to join us and we will need to hunt, train, and build areas for Flit and Lykos as well as any hybrids that come." I said and he nodded."

"Well you just know everything know don't you." He said smiling.

"Not everything."

"Yeah, your right we will need to train harder now in our elements.. Especially you."

"Why me?" I asked feeling slightly offended.

"Because you have that new power to work on now."

"Oh yeah.." I said feeling judged I tried to change the topic. "We have food out in the kitchen if you think you're good enough to walk. Otherwise I can bring you some too."

"Oh, ok thank you, Hailee."

"No problem, Trev."
