The Viod in the Dark

Ariel and Jessy just died. Adam has to escort them to the afterlife. Of course, thats his job. But when Ariel and Adam fall in love, will she be the one breaking the rules?


4. One More Option

"Ariel?" I hear a voice ask.

"Yes?" I reply, still staring into Adam's eyes. He does a cute half smile before he turns to my sister.

"You guys ready?" he asks, directed at both of us.

"Yep!" Jessy and I reply at the same time. Jessy looks at me and we laugh.

"Why do we keep doing this?' she asks me, while still laughing.

"I....don't...know!" I reply, having trouble talking because I'm gasping for air between fits of laughter.

"Well then, let's go!" interrupts Adam. He looks like he's trying not to laugh as well. He notices that I noticed his effort. He chuckles.

"Okay then, let's go to the Elysian Fields!" he says enthusiastically.

"One second, I want to say goodbye to Mom and Dad, even though they can't hear us." mumbles Jessy.

"Me too. I would hate leaving without at least hugging them!" I also mumble. Luckily, Adam hears us.

"Okay, I'll be at the entrance!" he nods and walks off. 

"Ready?" I ask.

"Yes." is all Jessy says. I offer my hand and she takes it, a single tear rolling down her cheek.

"Jessy, it will be okay." I try to reassure her.

"No, Mom and Dad will never pick the Elysian Fields. They'll go for Heaven like its obvious." she mutters, not even lifting her head. I would try to reassure he again, but I doubt it will work. I squeeze her hand and she looks at me, more tears rolling freely down her cheek. We walk up to Mom and Dad. We hug them, and when we do, they shiver, but smiles come onto their faces.

"Honey, did you feel that too?" we hear Dad ask Mom.

"Yes Honey, I think the girls are here!'' she replys sadly yet enthusiastically. Smiles remain  on their faces as Mom asks, "Girls, if you are here, show a sign."

I go over and knock over a plant. Then Jessy pushes over another.

"They're here." says Mom, a tear rolling down her cheek as well. Dad's not holding in his feeling either. He's on the verge of crying.

"Girls, we will find out who did this, no matter what!" promises Dad.

"I promise." he mumbles, reassuring us. We hug them again and whisper in their ears.

"We love you." and walk away. Adam must be getting irritated by now. As we're walking, Jessy speaks.

"Were we murdered?" I think about it. It was no accident.

"Yes we were." I answer.

"Do you know who it was?" she mutters.

"No, they came up behind me.'' I mutter back.

"But I was shot in the back. They couldn't have gotten to you without you seeing them."

"Maybe when you slumped down in my arms, I was only looking at you."

"Or there could've been two." We end our conversation as we get closer to Adam.

"There's one more option." he mumbles.

"What?" I ask, confused.

'You don't have to go to the Elysian fields..." he trails off.

"What do you mean?" Jessy asks him. He picks up his head and sighs.

"Normally I don't say this, but I overheard you two talking. Since you were murdered, you can stay in the mortal world and figure out your murder. If you want, you can even become mortal again for a certain amount of time." he suggests. I look over at Jessy. She nods.

"We'll do that." Jessy and I say in unison.

"Okay, good luck." he says, and we are transported to somewhere else.
