Get Away

Alyssa saw the signs that she was in an abusive relationship, she just chose to ignore them. Now that she has run away with her abusive boyfriend Rey, she realizes that she needs to get away. But how will she do that when he's taken her miles away from home?

Now Alyssa is caught in the middle of a top-secret plan and some interesting people she never knew existed. Her life will never be normal again.
How will Alyssa survive in this new dangerous world she has stumbled into? And who is the stranger who continues to help her? And most importantly, why does he seem so familiar?

(This is my first story so please don't judge it too harshly. I put a lot of effort into this book.)


10. Didn't I deserve a little normal?


"Would someone please explain to me what you're talking about?" I asked desperately. 

  The beautiful woman clicked her tongue at me before speaking. "Zhere is a lot to explain." She said quietly, almost to herself. "Vell I guess if you are going to give us some information ve might as vell give you some."

  "What are Dagelia?" I asked. I didn't feel safe asking this. Like knowing the answer would put me in grave danger.

    "Zat is a simple question. Dagelia are another race of human beings. Ve are rare and it is hard to find ozers like us."

  I was just as confused as I was earlier. "But what are you? The Dagelia I mean."

    "Ve are like super humans. Like humans wiz super enhanced senses and strengz. Unlike a normal human, Dagelia can jump up to 20 feet high and run at speeds as fast as 60 miles per hour. Ve can see much better zan your pazetic eyes can. Our ozer senses are enhanced too. Ve are super strong as vell." I was starting to understand about what they were, but that was about it.

    "So what about these powers you were talking about earlier? The ones you said that your ring enhanced?" 

  "Ahhh. Vell ze Dagelia race is also known to have a power. It is different for each descendant. Let me explain. 

  "Centuries ago ze Dagelia race was created using witchcraft. Zere vhere 4 people vho helped create it. Zey are know as Gorean, Lunic, Helenette, and Denrik. Each had zeir own power. Do you understand?"

  I nodded my head although I really didn't. 

  "Vell descendants of Gorean have ze power of illusion. Zey can make someone see somezing zat is not really zhere. But not for long of course as zis power takes a lot of concentration.

  "Descendants of Lunic have ze power of invisibility. Zey can make zemselves completely invisible. It comes in handy.

    "Those vho's ancestor is Helenette have ze power to control nearby objects. For example, zey could lift zat (she pointed at a small stool near the corner) and move it around or bring it to zem. But only small objects zat are nearby. Nice vhen you are too lazy to reach ze remote. 

  "Last but certainly not least, Denrik. His descendants have ze power to erase memories. Ze memories are not completely erased but fuzzy. As if somezing zat is right at ze tip of your tongue but you can not zink of it. Zey can only erase recent memories zough."

  My brain hurt from trying to understand all this new information. What? This had to be a dream. This was nuts! There were no super enhanced people roaming the earth who have super powers. 

  "So like, all the descendants of Gorean are like related?" I was even more confused now. I was torn between actually trying to understand, and just accepting that this was some dream or hallucination. 

  "Vell kind of." She she tilted her head while saying this. "But too distantly related for it to change anyzing." 

  "So how come it's rare to be a Dagelia?"

  "Because. Even if you are a descendant of any of ze 4 founders, it does not mean you are Dagelia. If you are a descendant zen zhere is definently a chance zat you may be Dagelia. But most descendants are not." 

  My head was reeling from all this. I needed a break. An escape to reality. I needed to wake up. But how do you wake yourself up from a dream? Pinching yourself?

    I decided to give it a try. I pinched my fingers together on the skin of my forearm. No. I was still here.

    "So. What does this have to do with Rey?" I asked. 

  "I told you. He stole a ring from us. Ve just vant it back." 

  "But you said he was Dagelia."

  "Ah yes. Vell you see, Dagelia are a very complicated race to track down. Your boyfriend happens to be Denrik's descendant." That made sense. All those times I would forget what happened to me. I thought it was just my subconscious trying to protect me, but all this time it was Rey who was making me forget.

    "How do you guys-"

  "Enough of ze questions. I am tired of answering your questions vhen you are not answering mine. So come. I shall ask you questions now." I already told them as best as I could where he was. What else did they was to know from me?

  "First of all, has Rey ever used his power on you? Even zough you had no idea at ze time zat he was Dagelia, you vould have to know when you forgot zings for no reason and never remembered zem again." 

  I nodded. "Now that I think about it, he did. All the time." I took a deep breath. "He would abuse me then alter my memories so I wouldn't remember what he did to me. It seems so obvious now." Not really. But I had to play it up. Act as if I weren't crazy. As if I were really trying to understand. 

  "Great! Ve may be able to get him for zat." She narrowed her eyes. She must despise Rey as much as I did.

  "Get him?" 

  "Yes. Ve have a secret police system. Ve are not to use our powers in public or on ozer people who do not know about Dagelia."

  "But isn't that pretty much everyone?"

  "Sort of. It is easy for zose who are descendants of Lunic. But zose who can erase memories, create illusions, and move objects have a much harder time concealing zeir power." 


  I nodded in understanding. There was so much to learn about these people.

    Wait. I forgot. This is just a dream. But still, it doesn't hurt to see what my subconscious imagination came up with. Although I don't remember my dreams being quite this vivid...

  "So if I lead you to where Rey is, I can be released? To go home?" I questioned hopefully. 

  "Vell, not exactly." She looked a bit nervous. "See. Now zat you know about us, your life vill never be ze same. You should have never met Rey." I agreed. My life would have been so much better without him. 

  "You said my life would never be the same, how so?" 

  "Vell some vould vant to hunt you down. Take care of you before you could possibly tell anyone. Some Dagelia are a very secretive and dirty.  Zey do not forgive. Zey show no mercy. Do not make zem mad, or else you may lose an eye." I felt lightheaded. What? I could die now? It wasn't my fault I got messed up with these super humans (well it kind of was). I just wanted to go home. I wanted my life to be normal. After all that's happened, didn't I deserve a little normal?
