He grabbed her other hand and held onto them tightly, which only made it harder for Pocahontas.
Pocahontas took a deep breath, thinking of how she would tell John it was over. Since she had just recently seen John Smith and found her love again, she knew the only way to be happy was to leave John.
When she was back in her village, she saw that John wasn’t there. When she asked where he was, she learned he was by the river. She made her way to the river and saw that he was alone.
“Good,” she thought. “At least I can do this in private.”
She walked up to John and grabbed his hand. He turned around. He grabbed her other hand and held onto them tightly, which only made it harder for Pocahontas. She knew she was about to break his heart, but it wasn’t fair to stay with him when she loved another.
“John,” She started. “I must speak with you.”
“Okay,” He smiled. ‘What is it?”
Pocahontas took a deep breath before she began. She was hesitant to speak, but she knew it had to be done. She told him she had seen John Smith a few days ago and decided to look for him. She told him they had found each other and kissed. She told him she loved him and always will.
“John,” She whispered. “I am so sorry, but he is the path I choose and I know now that he is the right path. I will always—”
Pocahontas was interrupted when a hand came across her face and knocked her to the ground. She stared up at John Rolfe who had a look of anger on his face. Pocahontas had never seen him so angry. She never knew he could get so angry. He got down on his knees next to Pocahontas and grabbed onto her face so they were staring right at each other.
“Listen to me,” He said each word with anger. “You cannot just leave me. I won’t allow it. I don’t care if you love him. I’m going to find him and I’m going to kill him.”
Pocahontas gasped as John left her side and began to walk away. Pocahontas quickly rose and ran to him.
“No!” She cried. “You can’t do this.”
John grabbed her tightly and pushed her down again. This time, he pushed her so hard, that she fell unconscious. There was a darkness in John Rolfe that no one knew of. He kept it hidden because for once he was happy in his life, and had no reason to be angry. Pocahontas’s words somehow released all his anger. He wouldn’t stand to lose her, even if that meant killing a man. He went after John Smith and all the while, Pocahontas remained unconscious.
