Chapter 19 – Fear

He’s not human! He’s not human! He’s a ghost! He’s a ghost! Mara kept chanting to herself. Her wobbly legs took her back into the safety of her hotel room. She crawled into her bed and covered her entire body with a blanket, her only protection.

Why must he be a ghost?! Mara questioned the heavens. This was injustice. Life had been too harsh on her. Her newfound love, her one hope, her only Jun Xiong, was viciously snatched away from her within one night. Mara’s heart ached for him and yet was scared of him. She regretted bringing his father to him.

“WHY?!” Mara screamed. She started hitting her bed. Her fist was pounding furiously against the bed.

“Don’t do that.” A voice whispered. It was a voice filled with concern; a voice she had gotten used to. Jun Xiong was in her room. He was worried for her. It took him lots of courage to look for Mara. Unknown to her, he had floated into her room as no door could stop him.

“AHHHH!!!” Mara shrieked and hid under her covers. She was frightened. Where is he??? Her guts had left her. She did not dare to risk peeping out from her blanket.

“I have never and will never hurt you. Mara, please believe me.” He was pleading with her.

You lied to me! You’re a ghost! Mara could not be convinced. “Get out! Please leave me alone!” She cried.

“Could you please listen to my reasons?” There was an edge to his voice. Jun Xiong was on the verge of despair.

Still trembling with fear, she shouted at him. “There’s nothing to explain! Uncle could not see you because you’re already dead!” Mara was angry. She was experiencing an overwhelming blend of emotions. Resentment, sadness, fear and disappointment were all grabbing her at once. She was weak against her emotional trauma.

“I shall leave you alone then. I am sorry for everything. Thank you for being there for me the whole time. Do not worry for I will never look for you again.” The final note in his voice hit her heart. Mara did not want him to leave. She knew it but yet…

“Goodbye my love” Jun Xiong muttered as he ebbed away.

You are so right! What can I say? I guess Mara will naturally be afraid of Jun Xiong.
