Heaven Sent

Blue eyes, dark hair over one eye, pale skin...
Who is the mysterious boy that saved Nahla on the night of the fight?
Why is he here? For her sake? Well, Roux is no ordinary guy... Doing what he does is difficult. Not to break the law, bend the rules, to be with her... but, they can get away with it. Can't they?...


15. Nahla

I plough through a mountain of science revision sheets, when I get home. Going through my biology papers and reading up the forces about a million times and finish at nine o clock. Tired, I haul it all back up to my bedroom. Flop! It all detaches itself, flying in different directions. The pages float down to the ground. Sighing, I kneel down to tidy up after myself, when I feel a sudden hand on mine, as I reach for a sheet on air resistance.

The world stops for a mere millisecond and I see his pale, pale hand on mine. Then, I lurch backwards as if being hit by an electric shock. I look up. It's him.

"Shit! Don't do that ever again." I hold my heart, panting hard.

"Hey, its OK" he takes my hand. "Sheesh! I must have made you jump." He puts his hand on my heart, feeling how fast its beating. He laughs.

"Its not funny!" Pushing him over, I say, giggling. Sitting up again, he says:

"No, no! Of course its not funny." putting on a mock serious face and I fall about laughing.

"Why are you here, anyway?" I say, calming down from my hysterics.

"I actually wanted to tell you something..."

"Go on."

"Well... " He trails off.

"Spit it out!" I laugh.

"I might be sent to limbo!"

I frown. "Limbo?"

"Yes, limbo."

"Isn't that a dance they do in Caribbean, or something?" Sighing, he explains.

"No, quite the opposite. Have you seen Inception?"

"Yeah, why?"

"Well... its..." Suddenly it dawns on me.

"Oh, that limbo!" The limbo in the film (Inception) is a place where you live in your nightmares, a horror where time seems much longer than in real life.

Abruptly, I change my tune. "Limbo?! You have a limbo? Roux, why are you being sent there? What have you done?"

"What have I done?..." He slumps.

"Where do I begin? Being with you, is one and fighting with that other guy, Darren or whatever he's called. I'm being stripped of my wings and chucked into limbo, forever. That's only if I do something, one more time!"

He looks at me. "Forever? But, no! I'm just getting to know you, Roux. You can't leave! Might this really happen?" I hug him, tight.

"Maybe...maybe... one last chance." He says into my hair. We pull apart.

"Is there anything I can do?"

"No, just support and trying to prevent anything else from happening." I smile.

"Of course, all the support you need."
