Several hours had passed and we were still stuck in the same place. Our phones had died, perfect timing, leaving us no ways of communication. Ella and I laid in the backseat, my arm around her as she cuddled against me. We had slipped our clothes back on, and instead we were here. Holding each other like we never wanted to loose the other. Which is true...I never want to loose Ella. She's the only thing I have worth fighting for. I've had so many girls come and go but she was different. I'd hold onto her like the rarest diamond. Special but hard to find.
She took in a breath, nuzzling her head in the crook of my neck as I played with her long hair which had lost its color I remember her having in Florida. I thought back to that time, a weakened feeling nibbling at my body. Or maybe it was because night was dawning but either way, it brought an uneasiness to my stomach. Life had gone downhill but now I was determined to make it right.
"Are we stuck out here?" She finally asked after hours of silence. I forwarded my eyebrows, geniunely thinking over the question. I didn't want to lie. I mean, I took this road because nobody ever drives out on it. In fact, I don't even think this is a road on a map it's so exclusive. Our phones were dead, leaving us no communication mechanisms and honestly, I was beginning to wonder myself if we would ever escape the ditch we had dug.
After realizing that minutes had passed without my response, I finally drifted back into reality with a stern look on my face.
"Are you okay?" She asked gently, her hand reaching up to gently cup my cheek. My cheeks warmed as I looked down at her with a smile, pressing my lips to her forehead before sighing.
"Honestly baby girl. I don't know." I answered as truthfully as I could. She nodded slightly before wrapping her arms even tighter around me. I enjoyed her embrace, the feeling soothing as the moon rose in the sky. She slept soundly through the night, but eventually the sounds bothered me. I slowly got up, making sure she stayed asleep before exitting the car. Air, that's exactly what I needed. Sounds from the woods became louder, my insecurities nipping at me.
Ella is too good for you.
You're not worth anybodys time.
You don't deserve to be happy.
Each word was another blow and another, wearing away at my inner sanity. If I had any left to be destroyed. I walked uneasily down the road, both my hands tangling through my hair as I let out riggid breaths. I took a turn onto a dirt path, surrounded by trees, not knowing where I was headed. I walked further and further down, the light becoming farther and farther away until I was surrounded by nothing but darkness. I guess it matched what I was on the inside. Surrounded but things of the dark. No idea how I got there. Yet, nonetheless there.
I looked back, my body travelling to far to see the entrance I had turned onto. I began to feel a heavy feeling settling in the pit of my stomach, turning in several directions of hopes of finding a way out. I tried walking back but the closer I thought I was getting, the further I had to go. I walked back the exact amount I had walked in but I wasn't met with the road...just more darkness.
"Well, well, well." I heard a deep, hatred laced voice chuckle. I turned my hand, my jaw clenching along with my fists. This is fucking funny, how they think some darkness and trees can weaken me. I don't know if they remember but I'm Marcel Styles. The only thing that scares me now is losing the girl I love.
The voice sounded all to familiar, as I raked through my mind in attempts to match it with a face.
"So sad, you can't remember me. We could have been great friends." The voice said, sarcasm oozing in every word. Every syllable.
"Who the hell are you?" I spat, my tone deeper due to the tiredness my body held, but forceful due to the anger captivated in me.
"Oh don't you remember? I only gave Ella back to the light when you surrounded her in darkness. When you gave her everything she didn't need." He replied as my eyes widened the slightest bit. He gave Ella the light?
The name Dylan was first to come to mind but I knew he had been taken care of. Jake appeared in my mind next, but his voice didn't exactly match.
I let silence linger before speaking.
"Ding, ding, ding! We've got a winner!" He laughed as my whole body tightened in anger. If he lays a hand on my precious Ella I will make his life a living hell.
"What do you want?" I spat, still unable to see him.
"Well, isn't it obvious? I want my Ella back." Something about him calling Ella his made a pounding race through my whole body.
"She's not your Ella. If you don't recall, she chose me. Not you! Ring a bell?" I seethed, the vein prominate in my neck.
"And had her life gotten any better since then? That's what you do Marcel. You do something sweet to get her back but all you do is trap her in darkness again." He answered, the voices in my head heavily agreeing with his statement.
"Not this time. You've got it all wrong and if you think she isn't happier with me...thats your problem, not mine." I rolled my eyes before his figure suddenly walked up in front of me. I glared at him, our eyes burning hatred as we both stood still.
"You make the first move. No matter who goes first, I'll end it." He smirked, unaware of what I would do to protect Ella.
I lunged at him, my hand wrapping around his throat as I slammed his back against the nearest tree. He brought his fist up to knock me in the back of my head, his fist reaching up to slam into his jaw. I heard a painful crack but he kept going at it. My legs were pushed from beneath me as I grabbed onto his wrist, pulling him down and slamming him onto the rocky ground. He groaned in pain and just as my fist rose to let him slip into unconciousness a sweet, sleepy voice stopped me.
"M-Marcel?" Ella spoke, obviously still unaware of what was going on.
"Ella!" I exclaimed, my eyes widening, "Just go back to the car angel." I instructed her but her limpy, tired figure stayed put.
"Is that...is that Michael?" She asked, her sleepiness now fully gone and replaced with curiousity.
At my moment of weakness I felt Michaels hand wrap tightly around my throat slamming me to the ground.
"Marcel!" Ella screamed, running towards me before everything went black.
