Holly's eyes widened in terror as she recognized the figure attacking her brother. Chase's dark blue eyes and shock of black hair were not mistakeable as she had gotten closer. Aaryn looked at her, Chase didn't. The slight advantage he had in the fight was lost as he lost his concentration. In a mere matter of seconds, the angel was on the ground and Chase was at his throat with a dagger. The dagger glinted evily, mimicking the same look that gleamed in the knight-in-training's eyes. It came closer.
"No!!" The 15-year-old Olisthir couldn't stop the word from ripping itself out of her body. It was too late, however. A pool of blood was already starting to from underneath her brother. She was dizzy. She lost them all in the span of a few days. How did this all come to be?
Chase stood up, night sky eyes distant and cold as he looked down at Aaryn. As he turned, he finally realized someone had been watching him. His eyes filled with horror as he noticed ocean blue eyes and blonde hair. As he met her eyes, he instantly regretted what he had done. Bad move. Very, very bad move. "Holly... I didn't mean for you to see this."
She was quiet. Her gaze went straight through Chase, no longer concerned with him at this moment. At a rushed speed, she walked to her brother. Without a word to her friend -- if she could even call him that anymore --, Holly took Aaryn's arm and wrapped it around her shoulders. She wrapped her arm around his waist, held her breath, and lifted him off the ground. Stumbling and struggling, she trudged out of the alley, not muttering a word of farewell.
Holly was able to make it back to her front porch before falling to her knees. She placed her brother down gently, tears dripping down her face. She held her hand over his throat, willing magic to heal it. "Come back to me, Aaryn! You can't die! I don't want to be alone! You can't leave! Not you too!" She cried, hands shaking. As much magic as she willed into this effort, he should have come to life, right?!
I love you, Holly, Aaryn's voice entered Holly's mind.
The Olisthir stopped in that instant, bloody hands falling to her sides in defeat. That was a message of farewell. She knew that if Aaryn was going to make it, he would have said something else, something much more hopeful than "I love you, Holly".
Screaming in rage and sorrow, she ripped off the necklace that Chase had given her for her birthday and threw it on the ground. "I hate you, Chase Vega! Do you hear me?! I hate you!" As she searched the streets with a quick scan, she noticed no one there. She didn't know if she meant what she said, but she felt pretty confident about it. What he did was unforgiveable. And, thinking about it, he was probably the one who killed Krista and her parents are well.
Turning back to her brother, her heart stopped. "Aaryn?!" His body was gone. She rushed into the house, looking around hastily. Nothing. After looking around for a long while, she simply dropped to the ground in the middle of the living room, an empty and lonely feeling settling over her.
