10. Never Regret Unless There's Blood

Chapter Ten-- Never Regret Unless There's Blood

I sit in the corner confused.

What was this feeling in my stomach, why was I so happy yet worried. My heart was speeding.

I was scared.

I run my fingers through my knotted blondish hair.

I catch myself looking into Kobel's vibrant, neon blue eyes.

He looks into mine and my heart goes so much faster than before.

His dark brown hair is still so beautiful even though it was dark.

I don't know what feeling this was...

I was confused, worried, scared... But overall... Over all these insane feelings filling my heart and mind.

The main emotion was happiness.

Our eye connection breaks when we hear the door creak open and Eclipse walks in with a grip on the gun tight as if it was the only thing keeping her existence.

"What do you want from-"

"Shut up." Eclipse interrupts Kobel pointing a gun at me.

"Why are you pointing a gun to me?" I ask.

"You two have to be the dumbest people on earth." She says rolling her eyes.

She walks over to me and I back into a wall and she places the gun to my forehead.

"Me killing Kobel wouldn't hurt him. He's the one who did wrong... But hurting you... That might as well as be killing him.

My eyes grow.

I look at Kobel seeing if he'd say something but he didn't.

"What did he do wrong?" I ask.

She puts the gun down and looks at Kobel.

"Would you mind to tell her or should I?" He puts his head down.

"Fine, he broke into the system's main department, and stole a file."

I look at him confused.

"What file?" I ask.

He continues looking at the ground.

"The question shouldn't be "what file", but "who's file"." Eclipse says.

I look at him questioning.

"Kobel what did you do?" I ask.

"I knew a lot about you before we met..." Kobel whispers.

I bite my lip.


"Let me finish." He mumbles.

"I had stolen my own file a while ago, I was caught but only given a warning. I found your name in my file..." He mumbles.


"I didn't know what to do.

"When I passed out and almost died in front of your house I recognized your face from the picture. Except you know you weren't as pretty he must've given you the pill. But I saw you and realized that you were my lock, but then that man ran outside and I realized your lock w-was gone." Tears fill his eyes, "You were supposed to be my lock... And the way he treats you he shouldn't even have a lock, how is it fair that he beats you and I wouldn't ever touch you but," tears start rolling down his face, "but that jerk got to call you his! He got the baby! He got marriage! That day that I came to your house scared was because that's the day I stole your file, that's the day I found out my name was in your file... I'm sorry.."

"Where's the girl's file?" Eclipse asks.

"I burned it..." Kobel mumbles, "I didn't want Crestant to find it.."

"We might've let you go," she cocks the gun, "but now that she has no file," she puts the gun softly on my forehead, "she doesn't exist here." my eyes close and tighten, "Maybe she'll exist in an afterlife. Last words?"

I shake my head.

What was there left to say, I'd rather my last words be an interruption than what words I wanted to say.

Kobel is the reason I'll die.


He runs over and knocks the gun out of Eclipse's hands before she shoots me.

Maybe he's the reason I'll stay alive?

A bullet flies onto the wall next to my head.

I scream and I drop to the floor.

The fear is over taking.

I hear another bullet go off ad I turn my head so quick I'm shocked I didn't break my neck.

And when I saw Kobel's lifeless body on the floor and Eclipse gone I think all my senses gave out, all were gone, for a moment or two I would've been happiest if I died, as long as I didn't have to see his blood pour from the whole the gun created in his temple.

I fall to the ground next to him.

My senses went out, besides touch, and sight.

I couldn't hear my screams but I could feel my throat ache. I could feel his blood run through my trembling fingers.

I could see him drift.

"Kobel p-please." I whisper.

His lips moved but the sound failed to reach my ears.

I kissed him one last time.

And then, I don't know if it was the shock, anger, fear, whatever... I passed out.
