End of Chapter 5
I turned on my heel and started running back towards my house, not at a out run but faster then I had been running before my cramp. I swear I could feel someone watching me, and it was distracting me from my run. I know better then to stop watching where I run..I'm always very careful when running with traffic but the feeling of someone's eyes on me had me completely distracted.
I heard the horn a fraction of a second before I turned and saw the car that I had just stepped out in front of. I knew I wouldn't have time to get out of the way, that the car wouldn't have time to stop before it hit me. I screamed as loud as I could as I closed my eyes and wished I could see Dom.
"YOU should not be here." A male voice said mockingly. I knew that voice..I had heard it before..but I couldn't remember where.
I turned to see a guy with the most perfect olive shin, deep brown eyes and hair as black as night that hung into his face sitting in a chair in the middle of a wide open field. I scanned the area around me to find that there were woods surrounding this place, but everything inside the clearing was dead, as if it had been burnt in the past leaving just the blacked remains of grass or grain. The woods reminded me of Dom, and I wished that I could see him...
"You will, don't worry." The guy said, with a mischievous.
"I will what?" I asked as I turned back to face him completely.
"You will see my perfect brother soon."
"Your..your what?" I asked.
"Dom..my brother." He said, with an annoyed tone in his voice. "You will see him soon, but I got to you first..so it's my turn to talk to you Alexandra."
"How do you know me? Who are you anyway?" I asked as my hands went instinctively to my hips.
"Of course you don't know who I am." He said with a laugh. "No one remembers Elijah...why would they?"
"Who are you talking to?"
"Myself..to you..to anyone else who's listening." He said as he swung his long legs over the arm of the chair.
"Ok..." I said as I flipped my hair over my shoulder. "So you're Elijah..Dom's brother...great..where are we?"
"In my...realm." He said, as if that would me any sense to me.
"My..realm. Dom has his area and I have mine, but for some reason mine is burnt today." He said with a shrug as he looked around. "Bummer."
"Ok..I'm super confused and quite annoyed. Can someone tell me what the hell is going on here?" I said, my anger and annoyance finally winning over my curiosity.
"Another day love," He said as he stood up and took a step closer to me. "We are being interrupted..but remember that I am watching you, and we will meet again soon."
"What the hell..." I asked, but was interrupted by a very bright light and many voices calling to me. I did my best to ignore them but they were winning and I was being pulled towards them against my will.
"We've got her back." I heard a voice say, the tone tired and anxious.
"But for how long?" Another said.
"Forever..." I heard a voice whisper, and I could swear it was either Dom's or Elijah's..but I couldn't figure it out before the darkness took me again.
