Our Destiny (Sequel to Fallen)

It's been a year since Karla started to remember, and everything looks perfect. It feels perfect. But the burden from her being an orphan, and both of her parents dying because of her, keeps adding more weight on her shoulders. When Justin and Karla find themselves in a situation they can't get out of, will their love be enough?

11. The letter

Six hours after my phone call with Justin there was a knock on the door of room 37. With mixed emotions I went to open the door. I stared into Justin's deep brown eyes. I felt the tears burn in my eyes as Justin dropped his bag on the floor outside my room. I took small steps up to him. I felt a tear run down my cheek as I almost jumped into his arms. He embraced me to his warm chest. My hands wrapped around his back as I held him tightly to my body. I felt his breath in my neck and his hand curling up in my hair. I pulled away from him and gazed into his eyes. His hands moved from my waist to my cheeks. He stroked a tear form my cheek away with his thumb as the right side of his mouth turned slightly upwards. I intertwined my fingers into his hair as he pulled me to him. Our lips met. I felt another tear running down from my eye. In that moment I knew everything was going to be okay. Or at least, that's what I thought.

I woke up with my head on Justin's chest. Our fingers intertwined. I looked up at his sleeping face. His other arm was wrapped around my torso. For a while, I just laid there, listening to his calm heartbeat. Staring out into nothing. It hurt me with every vein in my body, but I knew what I had to do. As carefully as I could, I pulled myself from him. He would be sleeping for a few more hours. I grabbed a pen and a piece of paper from my bag and started writing.

5 minutes later, with loads of changes I was finished. I looked at Justin safe and soundly sleeping in the bed. And then at the paper in front of me. Yet another tear slipped away from my eye and hit the note. I had to get out of there. I walked up to Justin and gently kissed his forehead. With my heart aching I went to the door. I looked back for a final glance of him. The fact that I would never meet him again almost made me drop to the floor. Every vein in my body told me to turn back around. But I chose to ignore them. As quietly as I could I opened it, stepped out and closed it behind me. My forehead hit the outside of the door. "Goodbye Justin." I whispered.

Justin's POV

I woke up overly excited, I was with the girl of my dreams again, finally. I turned around to embrace her, but all I could find was the cold sheet. My eyes slowly opened, there was no Karla next to me. She was probably in the bathroom. I sat up in the small bed. "Karla?" I called. The room stayed quiet. "Karla?" I called louder. Still no response. I sighed and got out of the bed. "Haha very funny Karla, you can come out now." I opened the bathroom door. No one. Where could she be? "Karla you know I love hide and seek, but now's not really the time." I smiled as I checked for her behind the counter. No sign of her. I walked over to the closet, the last place she could be hiding. "And.. got you!" I opened the closet doors expecting to find her in there, smiling cheekily, but no, there was no sign of her. I was starting to get worried. Where was she? I turned around and saw something white on the table. A paper. Was this another part of her hide and seek? I smiled as I picked up the paper, that smile quickly faded away.

Justin,

After telling you everything that happened this morning, I realized something. I realized that I can't let you get dragged into all of this. All I'm doing is bringing more trouble into your life. You can't get hurt. You need to be safe. No matter what, I can't let Rhett get to you, or your family, because he won't stop with just me, he will go after everyone that I possibly care about. And I can't let that happen. I'm going to try to get him to  only take me. And I hope it works. Because if you die, because of me, I will never be able to forgive myself. You need to stay out of my life, if you want to keep your own. Justin, I love you so much,  and I wish I wouldn't have to do this, but I have no choice. Whatever you do, don't come after me, please. Consider it my last wish. He isn't worth it. I know you will find happiness again someday. You will meet a beautiful girl that has a normal family, a normal life. You will get married. You will have beautiful children together. You will be happy. I hope you won't forget me, I know I won't forget you, but don't let it come in the way of your future. I promise you, this is for the best.

I love you.

Karla
