Dark Secrets

My name's Hope and I'm dead... Well, I'm supposed to be. I woke up buried and in a cemetery and to make matters worse it looks like I have a personal stalker as well who may be my only chance at answers. Let's just hope he doesn't kill me while we're at it.


9. Chapter 9

Hope's P.O.V

I'd finally given in and asked Al for help. He'd told me that he would train me and teach me how to use my powers. I was so grateful.

Now, it's been two weeks and I've mastered all my powers. I was a quick learner, he'd told me.

The guy from the graveyard had only returned once to my house and given up after that. I'd seen him attempting to find me, but he didn't know I was there and always gave up by the end.

Why did he care so much anyways? It's not like I killed his family or something. He's just an ordinary hunter, an Ajokoira.

Now, Al wanted to test me, so he dressed me in ordinary clothes and set me out. He wasn't far behind me, fairly close, keeping watch if anything happened.

I walked down the street, acting like this was something I do everyday, when I felt something whiz by my ear, just missing. A wooden stake dropped to the ground in front of me. I laughed and turned to see him standing there, in broad daylight for the first time. He had very defined and chiselled features. Quite attractive, if I might add.

"Nice shot, but... You missed." I teased. He threw another which I dodged by simply jumping out of the way. "And again! This really isn't your day is it?" I could see the anger in his face as he threw another, closer this time, but still missed. His anger was blindsiding him. I could use this to my advantage. "If you want me, you'll have to come and get me." I yelled as I turned and ran. I could hear his shoes smacking onto the ground as he chased after me.

I put on a little bit more speed and gained the upper hand.

"Your losing!" I called back. "But, no one's faster than me." He kept coming, not bothering to even shout a reply. Stakes dropped on the ground behind me, like a trail almost.

I turned down a street, the trick had worked the first time and went down, stopping half way and catching the stake as it tried to impale itself in my face.

"Nice shot this time. But you still missed!" I dropped the stake and continued running, turning down the street and then taking another turn back up onto the main street.

Stakes kept dropping to the ground behind me, but I could hear his heavy footsteps as he ran after me, desperate to catch me. I took a quick look around and darted into an alleyway behind a convenience store and running. Right into a dead end. No!

I slid against the wall, finding a dip in the cement wall and waited. Let's just hope he doesn't see me.

The footsteps advanced, and stopped outside the entrance to the alley, let's pray he doesn't come in. "Come and get me!" I called, using the trick Al taught me that made your voice sound like it's coming from all around the person your yelling to. He stopped dead in his tracks and examined the surroundings, his eyes landed on the alley and a smirk spread across his face. He entered the alley.

I sucked into the wall as best I could, but I knew it wouldn't be enough. Slowly, as I watched him, I ran to out to greet him.

"Found me have you?" I said before bursting back and leaning against the wall. "Well you still have to catch me." He ran forward and attempted to grab me but I ran the opposite way and waved at him when he turned.

"What's your problem? Can't you just let me kill you!"

"That's not an option, pretty boy."

He pretty much growled at me and ran forward but I ran to the wall and jumped, pushing off it and landing behind him.

"I'm over here."

He whipped around and I waved again, he ran forward and I backed up into the corner and before I could stop him he had me stuck, with a stake in his hand, ready to impale into my heart. Fear consumed me as he walked closer and whispered in my ear; "Today is the day you die, pretty girl." His eyes glowed with happiness as he saw the look of horror on my face, the corners of his mouth curved up into a smirk, he knew he had won. I felt my life flash before my eyes as memories came flooding back as he started to bring the stake down to my heart. My eyes filled with panic as I stared into his eyes pleading for him to spare my life, his ocean blue irises didn't have a happy glow anymore they were dull and emotionless almost as if he was deep in thought. I gave up knowing today was the day I would die (for the second time), I closed my eyes and waited for the impact.
