Black River Falls Part Four
" Phoebe Elizabeth Cassandra Coraline..." I could hear, from a distance. His voice, Nathaniel's voice. The voice, I had not heard in so many years. Or, had it been that long? Time never mattered there.
I looked around at the bright green, tree's of my secret forest. Where I was the only one, and was always the only one. I had been there so long.
But, I did not feel the pain, I thought I would feel. In fact, I could feel nothing, just numbness. I was so confused though. Brushing a lock of long red hair behind my ear, and standing up, from my place, sitting on a large grey rock.
" Phoebe Wake up..."
I heard it again.
" Where are you Nathaniel!" I yelled to anywhere, that he might be. I could not see him, just hear his faint voice, that seemed pained and desprate.
Why was he sad? Had something happen while he was in war? Did some of his knew made friend die? Why wouldn't he come to me... I wanted to see him to badly.
I wanted to see anyone! Bethany, where was she? Where was I?
What was this, never ending field, of neon colors?
" Wake up..."
" I am awake! Come to me!" I yelled, confused.
My dark blue dress still in the, never blowing wind. The sky the same, bright blue cloudless as always. It was so strange here. So, unworldly.
" I'm scared Nathaniel!" I yelled into the air.
" Wake up Phoebe, I need you..."
" I'm right here!"
I felt, dizzy, and sick inside.
" I need you Phoebe, Wake up.."
Wake up... Wake up... Wake up...
Ringing threw my ears over and over.
" I'm...coming..." I whispered, and I felt like I was falling. I closed my eyes.
Seeing everything, everything I could not remember, in my lonely heaven.
I saw, myself, standing at the door. My smile disappearing, as a man in a blue uniform handed me a envolope. And I shut the door. Watching my own face, as I read the letter. The letter dropping from my hands. My self falling downward to the ground, sobbing, into the floor.
I could feel the pain, running threw my body.
I could feel it, like a lightening bolt.
Nathaniel Micheal Thomas, dead at war.
Is what it said...
I felt the pain, and the release, of the sharp nife sliding threw my chest, and I remembered the way, I hovered over my limp cold body, before, I was taken into my heaven.
I could see something else. I memory that wasnt mine.
Only flashes of it.
Of Nathaniel, being killed. Him with fangs. Him as a vampire. Him coming home, to find out I had killed my self. I felt his pain. And I started to understand. For years he had tried to bring me back. Threw my rebirths.
Everything was dark, and grey, and I felt a jolt of energy, like I was flying threw a tunnel. A bright light at the end. I felt it surround me, and then. I felt, a thump.
I was opening my eyes. Slowly, feeling dizzy, and out of place.
" Nathaniel, where are you?" I whispered, everything, blurry around me.
" What?!" He seemed stressed.
" You didn't call me Ms. Coralline.." I murmed, smiling again. Suddenly, arms were holding me tightly.
" Your back..." He whispered, and I felt, warm, tears drip onto my shoulder.
Seeing my, long... blonde hair with streak of colors? What?
" What year is it?"
" 2011" He whispered.
" Who am I? I mean, whose body have a been, reancarnated into?"
" Phoebe Kings..."
" What is the matter with you, why are you hugging me like crazy?"
" I have waited, almost a hundred years to see you again..."
I felt, cool lips touch mine.
" This is all so, disoreanting..." I whispered, putting a hand to my head.
" But you here, with me again..."
" Yes I am, is this what all the girls like like now?" I asked looking at my pink streak of color.
" No, just you...." He smiled.
" This is so crazy! You sound soooo weird. I sound soooo weird! Why am I talking like this?" I asked, confused.
" Its going to take some time, but you will get used to it. Its how people talk now."
" Is that why you did not call me Ms. Coralline?" I asked, and he smiled.
" Yes, sort of..."
" Oh wow. This is, different. I think I need to lay down for a moment Nathaniel" I blinked feeling dizzy.
" But I just got you..." He whispered, and pulled me back into his arms. I sighed. Missing this. I was fine with it, even if, I did not look like what I was used to. I was still Poebe Coralline...
" You don't honestly think she ran away?" I asked, running a hand threw my light brown hair, I was on the phone, with Phoebe's dad. Brian. Phoebe had been missing almost two days. And it just was not like her to, not tell her dad where she was going. She knew how he felt, about not knowing where she was.
" I don't know John" He spoke into the phone.
I was worried. Worried that something had happend to her. I had a bad feeling inside. I had always been able to tell if she was safe. It was part of dating her for three whole years. I just wished I was not so far away. Maybe she was mad at me, because I broke up with her. I only did it, because I did not want her hanging onto me, while she was more then 1000 miles away. She needed to find someone better for her. I sighed. I could not live with the fact, she might have hurt her self, because of me.
" I am coming there.." I told Brian, looking into the living room where my brother was sitting looking at the TV, knowing nothing about Phoebe's disapperence. I would have to tell him, though, if I ever wanted to get enough money to get a plane ticket to get to Black River Falls.
I always had a bad feeling about that place, when Phoebe talked about, how her and her father were going to move there, because thats where her mom and dad met for the first time.
I knew though, it was going to be hard, I was going to have to bring Ash with me. Ash, is obsessed with things. Like, vampires, and werewolfs. He swears he's a trained hunter. But I always said, when I see the papers, I will believe it. But, some part of me, felt like it would need him. I had no idea why, but I had to bring him, or else I was going to be screwed.
I hung up the phone, before Brian could say anything against my plans. And started walking toward the living room and stopped in front of Ash.
" We have something to do..."
A large, crooked grin made its way to his face, and he sat up.
" Lets go..."
End of Black River Falls Part Four.
Sorry for the shortness. There will be a Black River Falls: Part Five.
I could have made this into a novel. But, I find parts much better, for this story line.
I hope you loved it! Though it was a bit hard to figure out how to write how, Coralline comes back.
But either way! I loved it!
