Chapter 12A Chapter by MaxRideFan
Akiza and Erik meet again, and Vera's story is revealed.
It was late afternoon, and she was late. It was amazing; I didn’t think it was possible for Vera to be late! Yet here it was, 1:00 when she should have arrived at noon. I heard the doorbell ring and I ran to it thinking “Yes, she’s here! She’s here! She’s here!” But when I looked through the peephole, I saw Akiza.
I stared at her speechless, and she waved her hand in front of the hole and I blinked. I unlocked the door with fumbling, slippery hands and peeled it open then I pulled her inside. “What are you doing here? This is a dangerous part of town!” I hissed. “I could ask the same of you.” She reply-thought in a cool voice. “Vera asked me to come here, where is she?” “Here I am! And here is where you will stay.” Her voice sounded half mad, like one of those creepy clowns. It echoed through the house but she was nowhere to be seen. “You’ll never leave! You’ll be my dollies forever and ever.” Akiza frowned and shook her head. “My sister was saved from the fire but has psychotic powers too. She can control people and weather. After both her parents died and she had the vaccine for the Black Mark, she went mad and ran away. She told me to come here because she had something precious of mine, and I had to listen to Vera.” Suddenly Akiza’s expression became absolutely evil and she punched me, hard. I wheezed and fell down. “I’m sorry,” she thought into my mind “she made me do it! But apparently I still have my powers!” Suddenly an image appeared in my mind of all the horrible times me and Akiza have had, and I reached out and grabbed her. I shook her so hard she was woozy and fell into the couch. Then I reached for her neck but grasped only air because she had run to the back door where she hurriedly unlocked the door and went outside. Then I started banging my head repeatedly. Akiza looked around and found what she was looking for, grabbed something and punched it. I stopped banging my head. I felt very lightheaded and rushed over to the bed and lay down heavily. Akiza walked in, grabbed a knife out of the kitchen drawer, and slit her sister’s throat creating a waterfall of scarlet. It was to this ghastly image that I fainted to, and the sound of Akiza shouting “Wake up Erik! Wake up!”
