A New World About to Dawn

*********Enjonine Story (Eponine + Enjolras)*********
What would happen if Eponine survived the gun wound? What if Enjolras feels for her more than he thinks he does? What if that growns into something more? She has always loved him......maybe even a bit more than Marius, although she prefers not to admit it.


3. The Barricades are NO Place For a Woman


                I run over to Eponine, who is resting in Marius' arms.

" Eponine? Eponine?" I start to cry. " Eponine, God! Wake up!" I yell.

              I take Eponine into my arms caressing her face.. I kiss her lips ever so softly. Pools of tears are collecting on my cheeks. Grantaire approaches us.

" I am agog, I am a ghast. Is Enjolras in love at last?" He jokes.

"You sick bastard!" I yell at him." Can't you see she is dying?" Under my breath I mutter."Sick drunk bastard he is."

               He retreats shocked. At this point I am knocking on every door I can. Only one of them answers.

"We ain't wantin' any of that barricade business here!" She calls out.

"Please, Madame, have mercy!" Sobs escape me.

She opens the door a bit.

"The barricade is no place for a woman" I tell her, mourning deepening.


               She brings us in and takes Eponine from my arms. The woman lays her upon a cold table.  She stares at me.

"We'll you helpin'?"


               I hold Eponine's hand while the woman takes the bullet out and bandages her. Eponine crys out for Marius every now and then. Once, I swear I heard my name. Does she feel for me the same way I do for her? I sit on the couch with Eponine on my lap. Her head against my neck. I hug her tightly, not wanting to let go. I taste the sweet honey  of her lips once more, desperately wishing her to wake up. She stirs and I  back off. Her eyes began to open and she begins to adjust.
