Come back, I prayed.

I couldn't utter it. I watched Frank leave and he never turned back.

Please!, My heart begged.

"It's alright." My father pacified me.

He hugged me all the way out and I felt reassured that somebody cared. I had pushed another person that sincerely cared away but at least I still had one by my side. One that knew me, good and bad.

The ride home was lonely and it seemed the goddess decide to punish me for my rash tongue. Everything I saw on the way home reminded me of Frank. The trees, every good looking guy that passed and the speeding bike.

"What happens now?", I asked father when we got back to the apartment.

"I've been dreading to tell you but I will have to eventually. Kristy is never coming back."

Saying these words, Father burst into tears.

I joined him, hugging him and sobbing.

"But there has to be a way? A wormhole to the underworld perhaps?"

"No!" Father retorted, "it's been sealed after the great war."

"But if he could somehow return?"

"He can't. Whatever you saw was his shadow."

I refused to accept it. Some of the blood rain remained in my hair. I could not mistake that.

Speaking of blood, I had to wash it out.

"I have to go." I excused myself from my father and proceeded to the bathroom.

I took off my gown and placed it on a rack close by.

I turned to the mirror seeing my reflection.

Tattered me.

It felt like I was looking at Kristy early in the morning like I did. I didn't notice. My eyes had started to bleed.

I'm sorry Kristy.

I took a handful of shampoo and ran it into my head, scrubbing hard.

The lather formed, turning bright pink. The purple in my hair was now more visible. The part of me I had tried to hide.

I sank on the tiled walls in despair. I turned the valve and water came running down, lashing on me and it felt good. The pain was needed.

All I wanted was to remain there. Maybe even die there.


Why was I cursed to be unhappy all my life. My mother, now Kristy. I could literally see my father slipping away too.

I knew he planned something, something he didn't want me to know. I sensed it.

At least

-yellow bean-bag chair, a relic of the seventies. An old tape deck and a towering set of speakers whose cloth was fraying.

Bad, I knew but it wasn't what I was expecting at all. He was rich compared to what I got stick in my head.

He want to his fridge and brought out a bottle of soda(S.H.O.C.K.E.D).

"You drink soft drinks?" I asked.

"Yep." He answered.

He opened his soda and stared blankly at me.

He wanted to know my purpose.

"Well, I've briefly visited to know-you know because of your connections, if you happen to know a way to the underworld."

I expected him to laugh but he looked serious.

"Is that to find your sister?"

"Yes. She is there."

"Ok. I can help."

"Really?" I raised an eyebrow. He was really full of surprises.

"But first..."

"You are not marking me!"

"I don't!, Yet. I want us to be friends."

"Friends? Why?"

"Well, I want you to know I'm not so bad and I also want to get to know you."

It wasn't such a bad idea for me. I've always been lacking in friends. This eas someone some of my peers would trip for.

"Sure friends. Now tell me what you know."

He began, "The queen of Unseelie sealed the deal o the underworld to prevent demons from returning to this realm so I doubt you can use the driveway but there is always a way. A loophole in the archives and from what I know, every Royal should have it."

The glint in McCoy's eyes told me all.
