My... poor... Liam.
Everything seems to be falling apart in our world, mpart!  :'(
Clarissa's just going to have to be part of the 5%.
After she tells Liam, of course.
Then they'll ride off into the sunset! Right? Right...? Please!
 :'(  :'(  :'(
There aren't enough frowny faces in the world for that.

That was a gorgeous picture of Bridgeport. You really captured Clarissa's feelings in that last bit. I feel so terrible for her, it must be hard to feel so alone.

Despite the sadness, I still loved everything about this chapter. Liam and Clarissa are so wonderful together - and Liam will forever kick himself and wish he never taunted her father that way!
PS. That bit about Agnes was wonderful. She's such a debbie downer when it comes to fun.  ::)

If it makes you feel any better someone else dies too. I'm not saying Clarissa dies or does not die, I'm just saying someone dies in the next chapter.  I'm glad I capture her feelings well. She is so use to dealing with everything by herself like her mother. Poor Liam. I'm sure he will join Zane's ranks if/when he has a daughter. Maleficent doesn't like Agnes and will probably continue mentioning it.

Mercy brought the cup of coffee up to her lips and  knew instantly something was wrong with it. Mercy frowned. Perhaps not enough creamer? It tasted bitter, strange. Mercy shrugged and continued drinking it. She hadn’t notice the bitter woman slip out of the shadows.
“You fool.”
Mercy stared at the stranger and it suddenly connected. She spoke softly,”You poisoned it, didn’t you?”
“That was for killing my father.”
Mercy frowned. “You ruined a good cup of coffee! Perhaps it is still salvageable if I add some creamer.”
“You have a hour left to live.”
“I lived a good life.”
Mercy sighed. She had lived a life full of drama, good and bad, and she didn’t regret a moment of it. The only this she regretted was not teaching her daughter a valuable lesson that had taken her years to learn.
“You said I killed your father?”
“My name is Gladys Brantley.”
Mercy felt a pang of remorse hit her. Zane had known that Alexander had another daughter and hadn’t told her. Somehow, the fact it was Alexander’s daughter made her stand straighter.
“That is interesting.”
“You snatched my parents from my life and I intend to do the same thing to your daughter. If she survives long enough.”
Gladys smirked.
Mercy’s smile faltered.
“Oh crap. She’s pregnant, isn’t she?”
“She has a 5% chance at living.”
“She will beat the odds.”
“Stress drastically decreases the chances.”
“You are killing two birds with one stone?”
“Exactly.”
Mercy already could feel herself growing weaker.



“This where your father made the same mistake Gladys. He underestimated my ability to survive. Are you expecting some plea of mercy? Oh, I bet you bought the cure to taunt me, to remind me of how your father didn’t get mercy. Why would I give you that satisfaction? Your father was a miserable coward and died like one.”
“Shut up.”
Mercy wasn’t done.
“He wasn’t that intelligent either. Trying to set a fire to save me from a curse? Please.”
“Didn’t you go insane the first time?”
“Oh yes. It was a hard lesson learning it was okay to defend myself. I’m glad in the end that pathetic moron drove me to the point of insanity. He taught me a valuable lesson. What that lesson was exactly? Stop living in the past. You dear, are living in the past. It will the key to your destruction.”



“This is your last chance Mercy. I made a deal with Fate and this time you will stay dead until she dies.”
Mercy smirked.
“She enjoys torturing her pawns, doesn’t she? Let me guess, she made this deal because she wants Clarissa to die?”
Gladys said nothing.
“I’m dying. At least answer the question. You know she will kill you, right? You did this for no good reason.”
“You have to pay the price for magic.”
Mercy sighed.
“My story isn’t anything special. If anything it is the most simplest thing. I don’t know why you Brantley's won’t learn the lesson. I have been at the edge of death six times. I die by my own terms.”
Mercy finally indulged in the temptation to set the room ablaze. It was simple really. It had always been simple. Fire had been a constant variable her whole life. Mercy was going out with a bang, not a whimper.



“What are you doing?”
Mercy was trembling from the strain of using her power. She smiled.
The room was ablaze.
“I’m deciding how I die.”
“You are immune to fire.”
“Not unless I don’t want to be.”
Gladys lunged for Mercy the moment another fireball hit the wall.



“No! This isn’t how it is suppose to go! You are suppose to suffer!”
“I have stopped being a pawn in other’s game a long time ago.”
“What about your family?”
“I have convinced Zane not to hunt you down for a long time, Gladys. I didn’t know who you exactly were, but I knew that he would make you suffer. I won’t be there to stop him. I am your greatest ally and your greatest enemy. In killing me you have chosen your fate. Clarissa will be fine. If anything, she will be a better mother than I was.”



Mercy stepped in the fire and felt the tingling sensation. It wasn’t agonizing like it was suppose to be for mortals, but it would do its job. She had instructed it to.



The moments were agonizingly long. She was going to be with her mother again. A silent tear fell from her face. She forgave her father in those last moments. She managed a weak smile.



She suddenly saw her body and saw the reaper smile. The reaper doesn’t smile.
“You proved everyone wrong. You will go down a legend. I’m glad Thanatos made me spare you.”
“Thanatos?”
“The god of death.”
“Let me guess, I’m somehow related to him?”
“Your grandfather.”
Mercy sighed. She hesitated, “Will my family be okay?”
“Yes.”
Mercy smiled. “Let's get going then. I have some people I need to see again.”
“You realize that you will be part of the most powerful organization in the world once the 10th heir replaces the goddess of fate. You will be part of the council that will help them determine the fate of the world.”
Mercy grinned.
“Can I get another cup of coffee?”
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The page’s of the Book of Fate turned a page and thus, the chapter on Mercy’s life had ended. Where the chapter had ended another one readily replaced it.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LivvieLove gave me the idea about the organization. Thank you so much. :) I hope I did Mercy justice, she was one of my favorite characters and taught me a lesson or two. It was a short part, but I wanted it to just be hers.

(Sniffles) So long Mercy! We await to see you on the council!
I'm so excited to see you posted this chapter, and so sad too! Mercy went out with a bang, as she usually does. She will be greatly missed. I hope that Clarissa is ok though...
Liam won't be ok if Clarissa isn't ok, and their babies won't be ok if they aren't ok...

You're breaking my heart, mpart. I can't wait to read more!

No one would have noticed the small grave that was in the middle of the graveyard. It was simple, boring. It was normal. Ordinary. It was meant to be simple even though it held one of the most powerful beings to ever walk the Earth. It’s cracks held thousands of deaths, thousands of last words to love ones. It was the small things that showed you how extraordinary it was. How the grave held no significant name in its depths. The being it was keeping hidden from the world was far from dead. He was alive waiting, plotting, for the right person to take his place. Death was simply simple though complicated. Being the one holding the temporary burden was not an easy to do. Especially if it wasn’t yours to take. So you waited. You plotted. You kept waiting even if it killed you in the process. Thanatos was not one to be impatient but he wasn’t one to wait for things that appeared to never be coming. He was waiting for the girl to take his place and for him to finally get his revenge on the goddess of Fate that could have saved him from this miserable destiny. Being married to your best friend and worst enemy had never been easy. Especially after she was the one who had killed you in the first place.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ostriches flew tulips over the stone slab and they never landed. Maleficent sighed. Was this the grave? Did she really have to do this? Her eyebrows furrowed in concentration. The grave was so simple, so ordinary. Surely the god of Death would have wanted to be buried somewhere else? The dragon egg that Maleficent had received as a birthday present had said otherwise. This was the grave. How Majnun had managed to put an encrypted code that only Maleficent understood was baffling. It had told her two things. Dragon Valley. Champs Les Sims. It’s time. It would have been absolute insanity if you hadn’t been Maleficent. She happened to know that Champs Les Sims was where Fate was from and where Thanatos had met Fate. She also knew that a certain god of Death had been buried there. How had she known?

 She had been the one to make sure he kept his power even after he died which in the process, made him immortal. The title of death had been passed on from mortal to mortal until the last keeper had been Thanatos Niccoli. The only difference about this keeper of death was that he was a goddesses son. When Maleficent had made him immortal she had unleashed a god. All the sudden he had always been the god of death. She had literally messed with the whole system. The keepers of death disappeared into the fading pages of a book that didn’t exist. The only person that had known these keepers had existed was her and it was terrifying.

Many had tried to replace Thanatos and had failed. They had died inhumane deaths because they couldn’t raise him back to life. They couldn’t replace death. If you succeeded you were forced to take the role. Megan Labelle had always threatened her mother that she would raise him from the dead since it seemed more likely that she could take the role. No one wanted the role though. The burden was too great for most. That wasn’t the cherry on top of the camel shake though. Thanatos would return and bring back the death keepers which weren’t as merciful as everyone wanted them to be.  His replacement would have to kill him again and make sure that the death keepers were never seen. No one could know. If they did they would have the wrath of the gods on all of them. It didn’t help that Thanatos had a grudge against Fate though. She had killed him after all. Ironic that Fate killed Death, isn’t it? No one could ever know the death keepers had existed. There wouldn’t be any would left to know they hadn’t exist. Maleficent chimed,”Magic always comes with a price.” Death keepers were like valkyries in every way except few ways They served themselves and opened the gates of death and life when they pleased. They were also still alive. This didn’t dampen Maleficent’s spirit though.

This had been her best birthday ever. She had gotten a freakin dragon that somehow had a message in it. She hated that she would owe Majnun. As much as she respected insanity she had to draw the line when it came to him. He was your best friend and your worst enemy. One moment he would bless with a long life and the other moment stab you in the back and laugh as the life drained out of your eyes. Maleficent had always tried to approach such creatures with caution. One wrong movement and they would attack. The thing about Thanatos’s grave was that it also had the power to show you how you would die if you lived long enough.  When Maleficent approached the grave it answered her question on whether it was Thanatos’s grave. It had a small poison apple on top of the grave. Insignificant really unless you were Maleficent. Maleficent frowned. She was going out poison apple style.



Her killer wasn’t allowed to do that! That was Maleficent’s thing! Maleficent scowled at the poison apple. “Not fair. Not fair at all.” Maleficent fingers fumbled for her braid, but only found loose strands of her hair. Maleficent had decided to let her hair down and was suddenly regretting it. Fumbling with the braid had been the thing that had kept her calm during times of distress. So she laughed out loud. “Here goes nothing. Either the monkey goes up and attacks the red dot or the purple flamingo loses.” Maleficent chanted a simple spell that was complicated for the average magic user, but easy for her

. She knew death better than anyone because she was half-dead anyways. She had believed that being a vampire was the same as a death sentence. It didn’t matter how you spinned the story they still ended up in a coffin. It was strange, absurd that she had actually wanted to be death. She wanted to prove to everyone that she was more than her mother’s shadow. She was Maleficent the sorceress that was meant to be feared. After today she would be a goddess. It was strange how today she had given Alexander a poison apple, and made Thanatos immortal. It had seemed like a distant memory for so many, but for her it had happened a couple of hours ago. She laughed. Time travel was strange and that was why she loved it. 

The more she chanted the spell the louder her fears that haunted her became. “Mommy don’t leave. I’m sorry daddy died. Mommy don’t leave. I promise I will be good.” Maleficent gritted her teeth and inwardly screamed. It was settled then. The people that had become death had died from their fear from the past. She didn’t care. She was strong enough to deal with it. Her deepest, darkest fears chanted back in her union as she raised Thanatos from the dead. She would never forget it. It was the single worst moment of her life and she had many bad moments in her life. This was the grape on top of the caterpillar.



All the sudden a neon haired man clawed his way out of the Earth’s crust. The voices screaming at Maleficent vanished and what came was a surge of power igniting the power in her veins. She had been born to be a goddess. She laughed. No wonder everyone feared her in the future she was death.



Maleficent chanted a simple blessing that had been commonly used. It was difficult for Maleficent though, she was used to cursing people not blessing them. She hadn’t even known how much time had passed. She didn’t care. What was time in the scheme of things? After a while the blessing finally worked and Thanatos emerged.



Maleficent managed a small smile. He was a hybrid like she was. It was strange because most death keepers were hybrids after all. He had sleek hair and eyes that made her skin crawl. That was why her family had such unwordly eyes. They were the eyes of the cursed.



“You best be off Maleficent. You have paperwork to do.” Maleficent shrugged. “I’m hiring people to do the boring stuff. You realize you are going to have to die again so no new death-keepers show up, right?” Thanatos nodded. Maleficent knew that he wouldn’t forget what he originally was. “We keep this between us. Now go find Fate and get your revenge. I always enjoy family entertainment.” Maleficent smirked as she was surrounded by power that was going to transport her to who knows where. All she knew was that she was someone with power now and no one would ever call her her mother’s shadow.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fate sighed as she waited for her mother and her ex-husband who had recently been brought back to life to show up. How exhausting. It felt like just yesterday her mother had died. Fate reminisced back to the good old days, where everyone would stay dead when she meant them to. She remembered her mother’s death fondly even though Fate had been cursed with those absurd tattoos that had marked her mother has Nyx’s high priestess. Meh. It was just a show of power that Fate had been able to defeat Nyx’s high priestess and would do it again. Her eyes had also turned back to normal when her ex-husband had been brought back to life. She had been cursed with her eyes show the unworldly power that she had possessed and showing how much she was a danger to everyone that had met her. Again, another badge of power. Fate was baffled by the thought that these people had thought she didn’t want to show her power. Who didn’t want to?

She waited at her old home in Champs Les Sims that used to be a fine nectary until it was abandoned because it was apparently haunted. Fate had bought the house back and had gotten strange looks from the locals who didn’t know how she was. She was the person who apparently “haunted” the house, didn’t they know that? With great happiness she watched as the house decayed into something vivid. It was beautiful. Her mother would have hated it. The door finally opened and her mother entered with a scowl already placed onto her face. Fate was glad she had seen the properties state, she had done it for her mother after all. Fate gracefully walked down the steps and grinned at her mother. “Took you long enough to show up! I have been expecting you mother.”



“What are you doing you stupid child! Cursing your descendants! If you would've just stayed you could have lived a simple life. Married a rich man and had children.”
Fate rolled her eyes. “Still living in that age mother? Aren’t you the one to tell me to run away after all?”
Fate’s mother was temporarily flustered. “Mother you were Nyx’s high priestess. Arrogant, foolish, you were a high priestess. Now just imagined all the wonderful things I have done. I know your pea-sized brain won’t be able to handle it.” Fate’s eyes suddenly dawned in realization. “Who brought you back to life anyways?” Fate’s mother glared at Fate. “You know exactly who brought me back to life.” Fate sighed and repeated a simple curse that would kill her mortal mother. It didn’t work. Fate’s mother grinned. “You can’t kill me darling. He made sure of that.”



Fate finally noticed how her hair was turning red. Her mother continued on,”You are so much like your father.” Fate yawned. “Where is the crazy lunatic anyways? I don’t have all day for this wonderful mother and daughter meeting.” All the sudden a clown walked into the room. Fate frowned. “You look different.” “I'm hiding from the begonias"  Majnun’s eyes steered towards Nyx’s priestess who was glaring at him. “You took what was mine peacock, but I want my high priestess back. My little gift of appreciation will be here soon enough.” Fate sighed. She understood him which was disturbing. She had messed with Fate so Mania had a child, but had kidnapped her and was paying the price. Fate’s insanity was different. She didn’t speak in strange riddles, she just did strange things. “It seems to be a trend for goddesses of Fate to kill priestesses.”

She knew she was trending on dangerous ground. Majnun didn’t take the bait. “These weeks have been very trying for me. Sheogorath failed and kidnapped the wrong person.” Fate peered at him. “What do you need from me?” It dawned on her and she bursted out laughing. “My pawns are doing their job too well?” She could see him glaring at her in utter disinterest. “You will end up like your grandmother if you continue down this road. Reconcile with your father.” He said the four words Fate had dreaded her entire life. Fate raised an eyebrow at the mad god. “Why should I? It isn’t my fault he got someone has stupid as my mother pregnant. If he was stupid enough to get someone like my mother pregnant than I would rather not speak to him.” Fate sneered. Majnun was not someone to give up. "Yes, brightness doesn't run in the family, silly, we're not lightbulbs. Clucking is, unfortunately, genetic I hear which is why you might benefit from a cluck-fest with Sheogorath, my dear, he peered at Fate, how is my favorite swallow’s fate looking?” Fate smiled sweetly at him. She would love to tell him. “It appears the umbrella will soon enough be out when the rain comes. Pawns will rise, pawns will fall. Death shall come, death shall not. Trial and error will be her guide.” “Maleficent!” His voice boomed causing the room to rumble.



All the sudden a figure stepped out of the fireplace that had roared with power. The room gradually became darker and Fate stared at the bright green eyes glowing with power. How dare she replace Death when her allegiance was to Fate and Fate alone. “Man this death this is great and all but the paperwork is going to kill me.” Maleficent turned around swiftly and slapped Fate. “That is for killing my father and destroying my mother.” Majnun watched, amused by the interaction.



Fate smiled at the girl. “There are so many worse things than death for your family, dear Maleficent. I have been too easy on them, haven’t I?  Maleficent glared at Fate. “Your death will be very unpleasant, I assure you. You will be more hated than Alessandra and will die alone at the rate of how things are going.” Maleficent turned and stepped into the fire.



Majnun yawned and was bouncing back and forth. “Even death comes for the immortal.” The funny looking cloud walked out of the door. Fate stared at her mother. “I have turned into you, haven’t I?” A wicked smile appeared onto the woman's face. “It appears you have.”



Fate couldn’t keep the grin off her face as Thanatos walked into view. “What an interesting day.”



Thanatos coolly replied,”Fate.”
Fate smiled. “How are the death keepers doing?”

Thanks for the shoutout! You did most of the legwork though. :D

I love that Maleficent has risen finally. Now she can go have arguments with Agnes about those tombs of hers. ::)
Good to see my dearest god of lunacy has landed where he needs to. Fate better be careful how she talks to him though! She got lucky that he's out of it. ;)

Beautifully written mpart! I can't wait to see what you have in store for everyone (myself included).

Maleficent will be fighting with every Reaper she can about keeping her tomb system. Where else is she going to put the annoying relatives? Glad to hear you liked the chapter. :D

Clarissa stood up and dusted off the snow. This wasn’t helping her. Self pity wouldn’t make her chances of surviving better. What was she suppose to do now? What now? Her pathetic excuse of a career was finally getting better and she was due for a promotion soon enough. She had a house with bare necessities even if it wasn’t the most beautiful thing, it was hers. She had a steady relationship for once in her life that she didn't want to ruin. She had met her crazy family that was growing on her. Her life was finally coming together and all the sudden it had to shatter into pieces again. What about Liam?

She was almost positive he would not want to be a dad. What was she suppose to do? She wasn’t mother material. Heck, she wouldn’t even be alive to see the kid grow up. Some crazy gut feeling told her that she was wrong. That this was going to work itself out. She decided that some people were worth dying for. She hated the fact she had to make this decision. She stared at the whistle the watcher had given her. It was the obvious choice to use it. Her instinct to her otherwise. Something worse was going to happen and she better save it. Clarissa sighed and called for a taxi.



It was nearly 3:00 a.m when she got home. Liam was pretending to be asleep when Clarissa walked in. She was tempted to whack him with a pillow and start a full out war but just shook her head sadly. She had to put her barriers up and not do anything stupid. She muttered under her breath,”Stupid work. Stupid taser.” She didn’t want to hurt him. She had finally had this little piece of heaven she could call hers. Apart of her wishes she would have made him go back to his family.

Clarissa sighed. She was tempted to punch something. If she would of have ruined her chance for happiness. Maybe she should call Jack on how best to break the news to him? She couldn’t bother Jack right now. He was busy looking for Jupiter. Clarissa stared at the ceiling contemplating her next move. She couldn’t sleep. All she want to do was get a tub of ice cream and watch some sad movies. That would be the least effective move, but it would make her feel better. Clarissa had decided that it was the best move for her at the moment and got up. The moment she got up her stomach lurched. She turned the light on and navigated to the nearest toilet.



After what seemed painfully long she looked into the refrigerator hoping for some happiness in her life. She sighed as she saw that there was no ice cream. She was tempted to whack Liam with a pillow because of that. He deserved it. Didn’t he realize that he needed it more than ever? Didn’t he care? Clarissa sighed and went back to bed. Focusing on her anger, she was finally able to to drift into a restless sleep. Her nightmares returned. This time, she saw Maleficent holding someone’s body, crying. She couldn’t see exactly who. She couldn’t do anything. She was useless. Maleficent didn’t cry when her mother had turned against her. Maleficent didn’t cry, period. Somehow Clarissa knew she was the cause for the stranger’s death.



Clarissa woke up, gasping for air. Her stomach lurched and she rushed to the restroom yet again. Clarissa muttered under her breath,”Stupid morning-” Clarissa shut her mouth before she could get the next word out. She had almost forgotten that Liam had unnatural hearing abilities. She was tempted to find her phone and call Jack. Instead, she laughed bitterly. Stupid werewolf hearing. Something inside of her told her to not mention the fact she was pregnant. She could disappear for a few months and give Liam parenting rights when she gave birth. If he didn’t want the kid would her mother take them? Clarissa wouldn’t her mother so badly to help her. Would it be best to disappear and tell no one she was slowly dying? Could she get away with it? She wouldn’t survive this. She wanted to make sure no one went down with her. She knew how this issue could be solved except it would destroy her. She would never be the same.



She hadn’t even noticed Liam was behind her. She needed to fight about something, anything or she would burst crying. She wasn’t ready to die. She snapped at Liam who was look at her in concern. “You ate all the ice cream.” Liam groggily stared at her. “So?” “Did you even care that I might have wanted some?” Liam smirked. “It is just ice cream.” “No it isn’t. You didn’t even take account of the fact I might have wanted some.” Liam shifted uncomfortably. “You are kidding, right? Is this a female thing? Do you need to talk to someone about it?” Clarissa was about to snap at him.



Clarissa sighed and shakily reached for her phone. Liam glared at her suspiciously. “What is going on?” Clarissa spoke quietly,”Could you leave for a moment and not eavesdrop?” A look of realization came upon Liam’s face. “I don’t want to know, do I?” Clarissa nodded letting him assume whatever he would like. She dialed Jack’s number and took shallow breaths. “Is this Ms.Clarissa?” Jack sounded sick and Clarissa instantly felt guilty for putting yet another burden on Jack. He was already having a bad time. “Hi Jack this is me. Is this a bad time?” Jack instantly knew something was wrong. “Is Liam okay? Did someone die? Have you found Jupiter? Do you need legal help? I have a list of lawyers here somewhere…” Clarissa was tempted to laugh. “It isn’t anything like that. Well, not yet anyways.” This didn’t seem to comfort Jack at all. “Not yet? Is someone dying?” Clarissa noticed she was getting a call from her mother. She ignored it until the fifth phone call. “I’m sorry Jack. I have to answer this call.”




Clarissa angrily answered the phone. “What do you want? Another lecture mother?” The person that answered was not her mother. “Is this Clarissa Kwa?” Clarissa stepped back. “Who is this?” “This is your father’s boss. I’m sorry I’m going to be the one to inform you what happened to your parents.” “What did you do? Where are they?” The man hesitated,”Your parent's home went up in flames. We found your mother’s body but your father is missing. It appeared before that your mother was poisoned.” “What are you saying?” “We think Zane Kwa might be responsible for the murder of Mercy Labelle.” “My mother isn’t dead. My father isn’t a murder.” ‘The evidence is pointing to-” “Shut up! Just shut up! My father isn’t a murder and my mother isn’t dead!” “We would like you to come in.” Clarissa took a deep breath and felt the tears falling down. “How long has she been dead?” “She has been dead a week. Her body was buried three days ago. Didn’t your family tell you this?” Clarissa slammed the phone shut.



What were her last words to her mother? Her last words. Her mother was dead. She wouldn’t be there to help her up again or tease her father. She was dead. Dead. Her father? All evidence pointed that her father had murdered her. Her father wasn’t to blame. She just knew he wasn’t to blame. If anything Clarissa was the one to blame. She had screamed at her mother not giving her a chance to explain.  Clarissa dropped the phone and ran to the nearest subway. She was screaming inside. She had to run away.

How could you run away from yourself though? She felt as if the guilt was clawing away at her, destroying her piece by piece. She deserved it. She deserved all the guilt. It was her fault her mother was dead. She finally arrived at the desolate graveyard. It was completely empty. People were too busy celebrating Snowflake day to worry about the dead. She stumbled to the newest grave. “Mom? I’m sorry. “ She screamed at nothing in particular. “I’m ready to wake up now!” Clarissa stared at the red flowers dusted in snow. Her father had left them. “This isn’t funny anymore! You can come out now.”



Clarissa sunk to the ground as realization set in. Her mother was dead and Clarissa caused it. How could she have been so cruel? Clarissa had thought she would be the one her mother would be mourning over, not the other way. “I’m so sorry.” Her mother was immune to fire. That much she knew. If she had died that way she had chosen it. Was it because of Clarissa? The guilt was clawing at her, threatening to ruin everything good that life had given her.



Clarissa stood up after what seemed to be hours and finally walked home. She felt numb. Nothing mattered. Clarissa walked into the house to a frantic Liam. “Clarissa? Are you okay?” “My mom is dead and the police think my father murdered her. Thanks for asking.” “Clarissa don’t shut me out.” Clarissa snapped. “What do you want to know Liam? My mom is dead. My dad is a murder. I’m pregnant and it’s yours. I think I’m going to die.” Liam stared at her angrily. “That isn’t funny Clarissa.” Clarissa coldly responded,”I hope the truth isn’t funny Liam. Who do you think I was calling today? I was calling Jack.” “You are kidding, right?” “Congrats Liam.”



“Clarissa stop this. I don’t know what is going on with you today!” “What do you want me to say Liam? I’m pregnant! Do you want me to tell you that I’m jumping up and down with joy? I’m scared Liam. My life is falling apart.” “Are you going to keep it?” “What else would I do Liam! I’m not ready to be a parent but I’m not giving it up!” Liam froze with terror. “I’m sorry Clarissa. I’m so sorry.” “I won’t hold it against you if you don’t want to be a parent. You can just leave if you don’t want to be a parent.” It was terrifying how quickly Liam bolted out of the room and out the door. Out of Clarissa’s life.

Clarissa waited twenty minutes before speaking again. “Couldn’t you have just stayed and told me it was going to be okay?” Clarissa buried her head into her hands. She was going to die. Her kid would never know either of their parents. She had no one she could turn to and ask them to be there for her. Liam was her home. He was her only family. Clarissa had given him a piece of herself. She had let him in and in the end, was it going to destroy her? Clarissa stared at the door. Would it be stupid if she chased after him when he clearly didn’t want to be with her?



Clarissa’s body racked with sobs she hadn’t known she had been keeping. She sunk to the floor drowning in guilt and self-pity. It was pathetic. She had let him in. He had destroyed her or had she done that herself? She seemed to have something self-destructive in her. Everything she touched seemed to break. She wasn’t as unstoppable as she would like to believe. Letting people in had never been one of her talents. Letting them destroy her had. Her best friend had done it. Clarissa’s eyes skirted to the journal hazardly leaning off the edge of the bedtable. Clarissa lunged for the book and carefully laid it on the floor. One touch was all it would take to transport her into a different time, a different world. Clarissa needed to be someone else for a few minutes even if it meant being a psychopathic goddess that had destroyed her family. Clarissa reached for the book and got what she wished.


=======================================================================

Fate held her head high as she walked into her family’s nectary. It was a large mansion sitting on a hilltop that had grape vines surrounding the house. It had made her step-father rich in the process of forcing servants to do the work while he laid back and took credit for it. The wisteria was starting to take root and overthrow the house’s simple nature. She had always liked the vines that had threatened to suck the simplicity out of the house. Her mother and stepfather owned it. Well, her step-father’s nectary that her mother had always insisted was hers also. Her mother had tried in vain to have his child. When that didn’t work she told Fate that she was her step-father’s child. She discovered this lie one day when she was feeding the chickens after her mother chased her with a broom across the home.



“Her grandfather found her. That stupid psychopath has finally come for what he claims his. He can have that pathetic thing. I just want another child.”
Her mother was talking to her “father” who was as smart as the common pigeon.
“Make a deal with him.”
Fate watched as her mother glared at him.
“That man is not right in the head.”
Fate frowned. Grandfather? What grandfather? Her mère was acting strange. What was this pathetic thing she spoke of? She finally took a deep breath and walked out of the shadows of the maple tree.
“What grandfather mama?”
Her mother glared at her.
“Your father’s father smart one.” Fate was tempted to roll her eyes.
“What grandfather? Mother, have you lost your mind again today?”
Her mother’s face went red with fury.
“You are a mistake! A curse given from the goddess of Fate herself! Your father was a stupid, foolish man who had gifts that you clearly didn’t inherit.”
She glared at her father.


“Don’t insult my pére. He doesn’t have any sense, but atleast he has a heart. What do you mean by ‘gifts?’”
Her mother glared daggers at her. She always wondered if she had gotten her own temper from her mother, though she would like to believe she was more logical than her.
“Your father isn’t him. Your father is an insane immortal that should have died a long time ago from his stupidity.”
Fate stumbled back. She stared at her “father.”
“Is this true?”
The man nodded his head.
Her mother smirked.



“Run away child. You are useless after all. If your grandpére finds you, you are truly doomed.” Fate stumbled past them and ran to the only place she truly felt safe, the small nectary storage room. She hid between the wisteria vines that were starting to over take the place. It was the best hiding place ever. No one would ever find her there. All the sudden a gaping hole opened in her hiding place. Fate shrugged and went through the hole.

When she came out of the strange hole she saw blinding lights. Witchcraft. Strange pieces of metal  were racing down the road that had strange lines. What was going on? Throughout the days Fate had stolen various articles of cloth that were strange. They seemed to work well enough though for clothing. After gaining information about her grandpére and her real pére she learned the startling truth.

Her mother was right. Her stupid, foolish mother was right. Fate started running through the city of witchcraft and tall castles and floating metal until she stumbled upon a book that changed her life. Some might have said she had “stolen” or “borrowed” the book but Fate believed none of this. Her grandfather wasn’t the type to just leave powerful things around for his granddaughter to find. One day, she hoped to meet him. If she met her father who was stupid enough to get a woman like her mother pregnant, then she never wanted to meet him. He was the stupidest idiot in the world and she hated him for it. She didn’t know him to already tell his lack of intelligence from the woman he had gotten pregnant.



She sighed as she entered the portal and whispered a few words she wasn’t sure anyone could hear. “Thanks grandpére. I won’t fail. I will make them all pay.” That had lead her to the current point in her life. The house was fairly large and her calico cat greeted her with love. She smiled at the small cat. She had named her Bell because she had found her near a bell. Her mother had always insisted her name was meant to Belle, but Fate knew that was a lie. She only answered to Fate after all. Fate’s voice was strange, alien like. “Mother! Guess who I met!” Her mother swiftly turned to look at her daughter with anger. “You don’t look different, you pathetic-” Fate smiled. “Wrong.” Fate’s eyes showed exactly what had happened to her. The power, the fates of millions on her fragile shoulders. She opened her book and stared at her mother. “How would you like to die mother?” All the sudden a broomstick whacked her in the head and Fate sank into darkness.



When she woke up she was furious. She reached for her book that was near her at all times even if someone tried to take it and stopped when she saw the strange boy staring at her. His eyes were a deep gray like the night sky and his hair was a strange pink color. “What was that for you moron!” The boy sighed. “She was going to hurt you.” Fate bristled. “I had the situation under control!”



The boy glared at her. “She was a witch! She was about to curse you! Don’t you see?” It dawned on Fate that this boy might be right. “Why does it matter to you then?” The boy ran his hands through his hair. “My mother doesn’t like me either. She cursed me and in doing so gave me this freakish hair color.” Fate frowned. “Its pretty.” The boy huffed. “What is your name?” Fate hestiated, ”Fate.”  The boy smiled. “Hi Fate, I’m Thanatos.” Fate suspiciously shook the boy’s hand while glaring at him. “We will show them. We are gifts to mankind.” Thanatos raised an eyebrow. “Gifts?” Fate smiled. “Curses. Curses because they forgot our power and we shall punish them for it.” The boy said nothing of how the girl’s eyes turned red even though it was for only a second.  From that day there were inseparable until power became more important to the little girl.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clarissa shaked with anxiety after the vision. It was driving her insane. What happened to Thanatos? All the sudden Liam bolted into the room anxiously looking around for Clarissa. Clarissa stood up and didn’t meet Liam’s eye contact. Somehow his gaze still met her’s. Stupid. He looked embarrassed. “I got someone at  the store to help me find things for the err, baby.” Clarissa was tempted to cover her relief with anger. Instead, she let him in. Again. All she could manage was a simple smile.

Aw! Poor Clarissa and Liam! I'm so glad Liam came back with baby supplies! He's so sweet, if a little dense.
I can't wait to meet the baby though... but I can because I don't want to lose Clarissa! :(

Clarissa noticed how Liam still flinched at the word “baby.” She had the feeling that he hadn’t fully accepted he was going to be a father. It didn’t help when Jack called panicking because someone had used his premium card to buy baby supplies.
“Liam what happened? Why did I purchase baby supplies? What is wrong with Ms.Clarissa? Who is going to die?”
 Liam winced as each question was fired at him. He tossed the phone to Clarissa. Clarissa tossed the phone back to Liam. Liam sighed and finally answered Jack.
“Isn’t the weather outside great Jack?”
 “No, it isn’t. The weather is terrible. Why did I purchase baby supplies?”
 “I don’t know Jack. It is your card after all.” Liam answered sarcastically.


 “Don’t get sassy with me Liam. I know I didn’t purchase that supplies. It was either you or Jupiter. Jack spoke softly, Have you heard from him?”
 Liam hesitated,”He contacted me to ask how you and Eveline were doing. I’m going to screenshot you the number he contacted me from.”
“What? When? Why didn’t you tell me sooner?” Jack was in full panic mode and Liam was trying his best not to snap at him.
“I’m not sure Jack. I was transported into a tomb and then I learned some interesting news. How is the bloodsucker’s girlfriend doing?”
“Liam! After everything he has been through you still call him that? Eveline is fine. Apparently she has a dragon now. Who transported you into a tomb? What interesting news?”

“Just a crazy hybrid running through the city that happens to be Clarissa’s niece.” Liam shrugged. He seemed to lose his nerve when Jack waited quietly for Liam’s answer for the baby supplies. Clarissa took the phone from his hand. He instantly clenched his hand in fists, transported to somewhere else. 
“Hello Jack. This is Clarissa.” She answered quietly. 
“What is going on Ms.Clarissa?”
“Well Liam just learned he was going to be a father.” Clarissa laughed nervously and glanced at Liam who was debating if he was going to run out the door or not.
Jack sighed. “So Liam didn’t hit anyone? Thank the watcher. Wait, what? You’re pregnant?”
Clarissa gulped. “Yeah.”

“That is great news! Do you know what gender it is going to be? Do you have all the supplies you two need?” Clarissa was baffled by Jack’s response. He was rambling on about how to take care of a kid and how Clarissa and Liam would be great parents instead of threatening to kill Liam. Suddenly Clarissa missed her parents badly. It was like a hole in her chest that she hadn’t even known was there. She had to get out of the room to scream, to do something. Anything. She couldn’t stay here talking about how great that she was going to die and her kid was going to live while her father would be stuck in prison for something he didn’t do. She knew he didn’t kill her mother. Clarissa inhaled.

“Jack would you like to Liam? I think he isn’t wondering if you are going to kill him anymore.” Clarissa smiled at Liam.
“Of course Ms.Clarissa. Are you and Liam okay?” He knew that she was dying. She shouldn’t have said anything to him. She could deal with this. She would deal with this. Clarissa smiled. “Yes Jack. Here is Liam.” Clarissa handed Liam the phone and gave him a small smile and then exited the room to read a book for “work.” If she could ever go back that is.
=======================================================================

Liam took the phone from Clarissa who smiled reassuringly at Liam. The smile didn’t reach her eyes. He didn’t know what was going on with her. He took a deep breath. He was Liam Reaper. Liam smirked.
“Yes old man?”
It took a while before Jack answered back.
“Have you seen your mother lately Liam?” Jack asked Liam quitely.
Liam tensed staring at the doorway. He could do this. He would do this.
“No.” Liam answered simply without emotion.
“Liam-”
“Jack I’m fine.”

“You won’t end up like your father Liam.” Liam closed his eyes and clenched his fist that was not holding the phone. He would not break another phone.
“Jack, what if I do?” Liam’s voice came out weak.
“You won’t. You aren’t the people before you.” Jack answered back Liam firmly. Liam sighed.
“I ran out the house because I didn’t want to be a father until I turned back to get supplies for the, you know.”
“Baby Liam. You went to get supplies for your child. I’m sure you reacted in the usual manner. You will be a great father.” Jack answered back gently.
“You really think so Jack?”
“I do.”
“Thanks, for everything Jack. I will tell you if Jupiter tries to contact me again.” Liam’s voice was thick with emotion.
“Tell him I miss my son.”

With that the conversation ended. Liam texted the random number Jupiter had seem to respond to.
Congrats Jupiter. This better be you. Your psychotic girlfriend now has a dragon to do her bidding. Liam waited impatiently glancing at Clarissa trying to figure out what was wrong with her. Liam sighed. Jack misses his son. We all miss you. Liam hesitated before adding what was on his mind. I’m going to be a father. This seemed to peak Jupiter’s interest enough for him to answer back. The universe can’t handle another Liam. Liam shrugged. I don’t think the universe gets a choice in this matter. Come home. Liam sighed as he stared at the phone. Jupiter wasn’t going to reply back and Liam knew it.

Clarissa gingerly walked into the room smiling at Liam. “Thank you.” Liam stared at her suspiciously. “For what?” “For being here.” Liam rolled his eyes. “You have high standards if you are asking just for my presence.” Clarissa frowned at him. “Stop making faces. You are going to be a great father and you already know it.”  Before Liam could even respond Clarissa kissed him.


=======================================================================

Clarissa tossed and turned that night, dreaming about the day when Liam found out when she knew she was going to die. How long was she able to keep it a secret? Could she keep it a secret all the way to her grave? It was tearing her apart. She should just tell him but she couldn’t. She wasn’t ready to give up. If she told him it would feel like a death sentence. Clarissa woke up feeling more drained than ever. She gave Liam a weary smile. She was tempted to collapse to the ground and stay there but didn’t for Liam. It didn’t matter what happened to her, it mattered what happened to him. In the following days Clarissa and Liam attempted to decorate a nursery. When they were done they bursted out laughing. “I can’t believe this is happening.” Liam rolled his eyes.

Clarissa stopped laughing for a moment. “I wanted your opinion on the name for the baby.” Liam stopped laughing and smirked. “We aren’t naming it Mercy if it is a girl and Liam Jr. if it boy, right?” Clarissa rolled her eyes. “I was thinking if it was a boy we could name him Zack and if it is a girl we could name her after your mother.” Clarissa couldn’t meet Liam’s eyes. She knew how Liam’s mother was a sensitive subject. Liam smiled. “That would be perfect.” Clarissa smiled at him. “I bet the kid’s first word will be nutter.” Liam rolled his eyes.



Clarissa had never thought that her life could be so good. She hated that she was doing this to Liam, giving him false hope in what seemed to be the midst of destruction. She just kept getting weaker and weaker until one day she didn’t even want to open her eyes. She did though. Everyday she waked up and was determined to stay. She wasn’t done yet. Liam was perfect. His imperfections just made him better in her eyes. “I’m getting fat.” Liam frowned at her. “Do not insult my child.” Clarissa scowled at him.



She couldn’t be mad at him for long though. It had taken him forever to finally say that it was his child. Clarissa knew that he wasn’t sure about his ability to be a parent. To be truthful, she wasn’t either. She had talked back to her parents and made them feel guilt for what they did at every turn. Looking back it all she wanted was another second, another minute with her parents.



Apart of Clarissa wondered how her dad reacted when her mom found out she was pregnant. Clarissa shrugged. Something inside of her said he panicked. Her calm father panicking at the thought of a child. Seeing that would be priceless.









She didn’t know what the future held for her. Clarissa stared at the strange journal. Liam hadn’t said anything about it. Clarissa traced the strange crescent shape that was barely visible. What did it mean? Clarissa stared at the picture with her and Liam. She debated using the whistle the Watcher gave her. It would save all this trouble. Why wasn’t she? Clarissa sighed as she put the journal down. Worrying wasn’t going to help her.


 
A sudden jolt of pain brought Clarissa back to reality. She started panicking. The baby decided that it wanted to make an early appearance. She couldn’t drive to the hospital and Liam was out of the house. Maleficent walked into the room humming about oranges. She stopped in her tracks. “You’re pregnant! Oh my watcher you are pregnant!” Clarissa snapped at Maleficent,”Get me to the hospital.” Maleficent stared at her. “This the opposite of my job.” “I don’t care what your job is. Get me to the hospital or you are helping me deliver a baby here.” Maleficent flinched and shuddered. “Fine.”

Ah, I love Maleficent. She always brightens up a chapter. You had to leave us on a cliff hanger though? I'm so nervous about what's going to happen to Clarissa!

I love the conversation between Jack and Liam. Thank goodness Liam CAN be just like his father.
Because the only father that's ever counted is Jack.. :3 Clarissa just needs to hold on a little longer! She can totally pull through this! I know it! She HAS to! Liam as a single dad? That would break my heart. :(

Beautiful job with the chapter mpart! I can't wait to see what happens to my dearest Clarissa.

Well, Clarissa has the Goddess of Death taking her to the hospital, so Milicent could just order her minions not to take Clary!

Jack is awesome. He is a great character. The next chapter too forever to write though I think it is okay.

Sadly Maleficent has to follow orders or she will end up in court. (The gods would judge her and she could potentially die if she messed up the order of things now that she is a goddess.)

This chapter took forever to write. Just for some new readers, Amelie and Megan are Clarissa's cousins. Megan was named after Clarissa's grandmother. Megan and Maleficent are very close and Amelie has been known in the past to be psychopathic. If you have any questions about the characters PM me! (This excludes future spoilers. Sorry.) This chapter has a lack of pictures do to the fact it has so much going on in it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Amelie sighed as she stared at the hospital her cousin would be arriving at any moment. She had never understood why Fate had allowed Gladys and Stephen to be running the lab. The only thing actually keeping things productive there was Astra and she was always complaining about her dead husband.  Amelie didn’t care. They were all fools. Amelie was a highly manipulative person that enjoyed destroying other’s lives, but she wasn’t a fool. When Fate finally wanted her descendants to start having true power, Amelie would step up to teach them.

Her sister was an excuse to sirens everywhere anyways. She had never truly learned how to use her powers. It was pathetic. Amelie stare thoughtfully at the hospital. There was an old saying that you died a hero or you lived long enough to see yourself become the villain. When Gladys and Stephen messed up Amelie would gladly put the organization back together again instead of killing off distant relatives.

She had contemplated if her brother John would have become the villain if he had lived long enough. He was the one who created the first version of the chip. It was suppose to give him immunity from a siren’s voice, but in the end it failed. Failure was not an option. Amelie stared at the empty vial of vampire venom in her hand. The needle was safely hidden away needed to insert the venom into the body.  Failure was indeed, not an option.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maleficent almost fell asleep driving until Clarissa started screaming. That woke her up. Maleficent knew what death’s mark was and Clarissa seemed to have it. Maleficent gritted her teeth. Clarissa wasn’t going to die. Maleficent almost ran over someone. She sighed and stared at the stop sign she ran over. “I think it is just a vampire.” Clarissa took a moment to stop screaming in pain. “Wha-at vampire?” All the color drained from Clarissa’s face.

Maleficent frowned. “Someone who had recently been bitten.” Maleficent peered at the person and the color drained from her face. “Megan!” Maleficent screamed. Maleficent stared at Clarissa who had passed out. Maleficent wasn’t even sure she was breathing. Maleficent steered the car around her best friend and headed to the hospital. She let out a silent sob. Her best friend wouldn’t survive. She was already a magic user and it was nearly impossible for someone to survive being a hybrid.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Liam stared at the strange woman. “What ring would you like?” The woman asked impatiently. Liam rolled his eyes. “An engagement ring.” The woman sighed and shook her head. “I’m aware of that. That is the fourth time you have told me that. What kind of ring?” Liam pointed at a ring. “That one.” The woman huffed with relief. “Is that all for you today?”

 Liam hid a mischievous smile. “Actually I was thinking of buying a bracelet to go along with it.” The woman’s face dropped for a second until she disguised it to be emotionless. Liam’s phone started ringing. He looked to see who was calling and realized it was Clarissa. He turned the phone on mute. Was it necessary to call him ten times in a row? Liam sighed. Sometimes he wished he could one more moment of peace. Liam certainly didn’t know Clarissa had died and Maleficent was calling him to tell him.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clarissa barely remembered getting in the car. She saw glimpses of Maleficent screaming at the doctor and everyone telling her she would be okay. She saw glimpses of blonde hair but she didn’t see him. She had to stay alive for him. Who was he? She had to keep breathing in this cruel world for him. Nothing matter except that. She couldn’t leave him. Could she? She heard the doctors around her encouraging her to stay awake long enough for her child to survive. What child? Clarissa was tempted to laugh. She wasn’t a mother. The blurred shapes didn’t know what they were talking about.

Why was that purple shape screaming on the phone? Clarissa was tempted to wave at the shape. Would the shape wave back at her? That was crazy. Shapes didn’t wave. Just like Clarissa wasn’t a mother. Who was she staying awake for? The shapes were disappearing now. All the sudden out of the chaotic glimpse out reality a baby started crying. It was adorable really. It had fiery, red hair and these bright, bold, green eyes. The eyes were stunning. All the sudden Clarissa was crying uncontrollably while she was holding the child. Everything was coming back into focus. Her name was Kaida. That was a strange name. The shapes nodded in agreement.

The purple shape was crying now. Maybe the shape had always been crying. Did shapes cry? The baby seemed to memorize Clarissa’s face and stared at her in awe. Clarissa held the baby tightly next to her. If she could just keep the baby close everything would be fine. She wouldn’t sleep. All the sudden something was beeping and the baby was taken away from her. Why were the shapes taking the baby away from her? Clarissa reached for the baby. She couldn’t move though. The shapes were blurring again and everything kept spinning. She just wanted to see his face one last time. Maybe this was for the best that he didn’t see her this way.

The purple shape was clutching the phone tightly to it’s chest. It was acting strangely for a shape. Clarissa didn’t want to stay. The beeping wouldn’t stop and all she wanted to do was take a nap. The purple shape was talking to someone named Jack. Jack? Why did that name seem so familiar. All she wanted to do was hold the baby. Why did the shapes take the baby away from her? The baby seemed to be fine. She remembered the purple shape throwing the phone down. Clarissa tried to frown. That phone was expensive. He broke phones too. Where was he?

The shapes were black and white now. She couldn’t tell which one was the purple one anymore. Another shape seemed to join in though. It was calming down another shape. The world was still spinning. Had the world always spinned? She couldn’t remember. All she could remember were those green eyes that kept her awake. She just needed to see them again. Why wasn’t he coming? Didn’t he care? Maybe he didn’t like the shapes or the baby that stared at Clarissa in awe. Clarissa didn’t like the dark because it brought nightmares along with it. All the sudden she was in the snow practicing martial arts. “That's part of it. No pain no gain sweetheart.” She acted aggravated when he had called her sweetheart. She actually loved when he called her that. He had meant it to taunt her at first but she had hoped it meant something more. Then she was dancing with him. “Thank you for the dance.”



She wanted to smile at him. Kiss him. Why wasn’t he here? Could she dance with him one more time? “So bossy.” “You love it.” Suddenly she remember the few words he had said quietly. “Indeed, it seems I do.” She couldn’t remember what his face looked like. What was keeping her here? She remembered when she had met him. She had slapped him. He wasn’t any prince in shining armor, but he was hers. He had always wanted to be a magic user, to be accepted. He hadn’t realized he was perfect because of his imperfections.



Could she tell him she loved him one last time? Would he listen to her? The world suddenly came back into focus for Clarissa. The blonde smirked. “Hey cousin. I’m your long lost relative. What a shame you survived childbirth.” The blond leaned down. “It is a shame nobody will know and your little friend will think the ‘unstable’ pregnancy killed you.” “His name is Liam.” Clarissa managed to say weakly.

Her long-lost relative sighed. “I really don’t care.” The blonde grabbed a pillow and the world went black. The shapes were gone even. All Clarissa could see were the stars. She just wanted to make sure everything was alright. Clarissa struggled against the blonde, trying to stay awake for him. It didn’t work. The world plummeted into darkness again and all Clarissa could see were the stars. She just wanted him to stay with her. She couldn’t stay with him even though she struggled to. All that was the blinding light.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Liam stared the ring he bought. He checked his phone. Fifty phone calls? Seriously Clarissa?  He loved that crazy woman though he didn’t understand sometimes why she did things. Liam dialed her phone number. Liam shrugged. Her phone was dead. Liam attempted to call Jupiter again. No luck. He called Jack.
Jack answered, his voice thick with emotion. “Liam where are you? Why haven’t you answered your phone?”
Liam was caught off guard by Jack’s voice. “What happened? Is Clarissa alright?”
“Liam-”

“Let me talk to him! Let me talk to-”
“Maleficent I don’t think he should take this news from you.”
“She asked for him in her final moments! He isn’t allowed to escape this! Answer your stupid phone! You should have answered your stupid phone!”
The stupid hybrid was screeching on the other side of the phone. Liam was shaking. Whose final moments?


“Jack what is going on? What is that stupid hybrid talking about?” Liam’s voice dropped into a whisper.
“Liam, this isn’t something I can tell you over the phone.”
“What is it?” Liam was screaming at the phone. All the sudden it dawned on him as he stared the phone.“She is dead. She is dead.”
“Lia-” Liam hanged up and clutched the phone in one hand. He collapsed to the ground, silent tears streaming down his face. He shakily called Jupiter who didn’t answer. “Jupiter, just come home! Stop avoiding us all because of your girlfriend! She isn’t dead so stop acting like she is!” That would be a pleasant voicemail to listen to. Liam didn’t care. He didn’t care about anything.



The phone kept ringing. That stupid thing kept ringing. He didn’t know what he had until he had lost it. He lost everything. It was his own fault in the end though. It was those stupid nutters fault. It was everyone's fault. He didn’t care about the details or the speculations. He had made a mistake and was paying for it. He deserved it. He had left her. Liam got up and finally realized he was soaked.

It would be easy to just turn into a werewolf right now. Disappear for a couple days. Keep everyone out of his head. Could he do that though? “Some people are worth opening up to.” Even when she was dead she was haunting him. He shook his head. He had open up to her and she had ended up dead. People would mourn over her but he would be frozen in time, trying to grasp at the memory of her. He would be chasing the past like his mother. His mother. He would end up like her. No, he was his father. The man that had destroyed his mother until nothing remained but the ashes of who she once was. He had ignored her. Just like Liam had ignored Clarissa.



Liam picked himself up and called Jack. He had to see her. One more time. Just one more time. Even if it killed him.
“Can I see her Jack?”
Liam could hear Jack pacing.
“Liam-”
“Can I see her?”
“I don’t think that would be the best thing for you right now.” Jack said gently.
Liam sighed and tensed in frustration. He need to disappear for a few days.
“Tell me what happened to her. What happened to the baby?” Liam looked around, looking for a fight.
“Liam I’m coming to you.”
“Don’t.”
 “You shouldn’t be alone.”
“She is dead because of me Jack.”
“Liam-”
“What happened to her and the baby?” Liam was trying to keep his voice steady. He needed to get out of this city. He just need to know.
“Jack just tell me.”
“Liam I am not going to tell you over the phone.” Jack said firmly.
“I need to know Jack. I need to know before-”
“You have a daughter Liam. Think wisely before you do anything.”
“What?”
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maleficent looked around the city, scrambling for her friend. Maybe she could save her if she came soon enough. Maybe, just maybe, she could do something right for once. She was a freak. Maleficent found Megan’s body, haphazardly dumped by the road. Someone had moved her. Maleficent peered into the darkness. She held her dead friend’s body and started sobbing. She was alone. Again. Her friend wasn’t even her usual tint of green. She was a pale pastel color. It didn’t matter what Maleficent did. She couldn’t save anyone from death or she would be forced into a long trial by the gods. This was all an idiotic dream. Maleficent examined her friends corpse. Where was the vampire bite? Where was the stupid vampire bite? Maleficent shaked her head. It was impossible.



She didn’t even know he was behind her until it was too late to do anything.  She grinned like the maniac she was. “Hello there. Happy Yeti day!” Maleficent bursted out laughing as the stranger stared at her in bewilderment. She ruined his plans. Maleficent frowned. “What do you want? Do I know you? Did you kill her?” She suddenly noticed his blue hair and bursted out laughing. “Did you bury the body deep enough?” Jupiter released her. “Are you insane?” Maleficent smirked. “You should treat the goddess of Death with more respect! Phil would be ashamed!”



Jupiter’s eyes never wavered from Megan’s dead body. “What did you do to her?” Jupiter spat out angrily. Maleficent met Jupiter’s cold stare. “I did nothing. I found her while I was taking a pregnant lady to the hospital.” “What is she to you?” Maleficent flinched. “She is, was, my best friend that I just found dead because her body rejected the venom injected into her system. She was already a powerful magic user.”
 Jupiter flinched and Maleficent knew she had found a sore spot for him. He lowered his voice. “What are you?” Maleficent rolled her eyes. “Lunatic. Goddess. Hybrid.” Jupiter stared at her quizzically. “Hybrid?” Maleficent sighed. “Half vampire, half magic user. Go away. Run to Reaper or something. Clarissa died.” Jupiter hesitantly got up and stared at the strange woman. “Sorry about your friend.” Maleficent sighed. She slumped back to the ground, defeated.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Liam arrived at the hospital too late to do any good. He arrived defeated and all his arrogance gone from his features. Just pain. He didn’t even notice the blue-haired vampire staring at the hospital entrance until he taped Liam on the shoulder. Liam snapped and turned around ready to scream at the intruder until he was met with a humorless face. Always proper. Always trying to be like Jack. Liam couldn’t find words to say. For once in his life he was speechless. He soon recovered and sighed. “Welcome back.”

Liam walked into the hospital ignoring the hostile stares he had gotten. He returned many of them. He walked over to Jack dozing quietly in a chair and shook him. Jack launched up and stared at Jupiter who wasn’t meeting his eyes. “Where is Clarissa?” Jack was at a lost for words. “Jupiter-” Liam ventured past them and pushed open some random doors. He could hear Jack and Jupiter hugging it out. Jack had forgiven Jupiter. Jack always forgave Jupiter. His son. Jack would probably never leave Jupiter alone again though. Liam allowed himself a small moment of happiness he didn’t deserve. Jupiter was back with Jack because of that stupid voicemail. At least he had done something right today.

He walked straight into a room that was covered with Clarissa’s scent and the reek of death. It had a scent too sweet covered in it also. Liam froze. Clarissa looked very tired, almost peaceful. Someone else had been in here when she had died though. Someone had murdered her. She was dead because someone had murdered her. If only he had been there then she would have still been alive. He walked right into the scene of Jack and Jupiter staring worriedly at him. “Liam-” Laim didn’t realize he had clenched his hands into fists and he had murder in his eyes. “Someone killed her.” Jack sighed, weary from the situation. “We all loved Ms.Clarissa and she knew what she was doing. Liam, she died from an unstable pregnancy. She had known if she carried through the pregnancy the chances of her surviving were slim.” Jack said as gently as he could.

“She wouldn’t leave me like that. I know her Jack. She wouldn’t leave me like that.” Liam was trembling, already staring at the door. He knew her though. She wouldn’t tell him if she didn’t think he could handle it. He felt betrayed. He felt angry, but more than ever hurt. She hadn’t trusted him enough to tell him. Liam sunk into a chair, no longer staring at anything or anyone. “I should have known. I should have done more.” “It wasn’t your fault.” Jack hesitated. “If you need me to watch Kaida for a while-” Liam interrupted him. “I need to see her.”

Liam lunged past the doctors and nurse and went to where Kaida was located. A small baby was crying noisily. Liam held the baby awkwardly until it stopped screaming. The baby appeared to look at him in awe with a look of bewilderment. She had Liam’s eyes though she already had Clarissa’s hair. “I won’t leave you. Ever.” Kaida reached to tug on Liam’s hair and Liam finally smiled.

I'm really glad I was able to capture the right emotions when writing that chapter. It was difficult for me to write. I promise some happier chapters are doomed to show up! (That or I will lose my mind.)

Kaida wasn’t sure of everything. She just knew a couple of things. Uncle Jupiter talked too much about a blonde lady. Grandpa Jack was the nicest person ever. Daddy was the best person in the whole wide world. Daddy didn’t react well to everything. He kept drinking potions and muttering about keeping it together.

 Kaida was tempted to give him duct tape. It fixed everything and irritated uncle Jupiter. It was beautiful. Kaida enjoyed torturing uncle Jupiter. It made daddy laugh occasionally. He smiled sadly at Kaida.
“What are you thinking about you crazy nutter?”
Kaida giggled. She wasn’t a nutter. Uncle Jupiter was. Clearly.



Daddy always had a smile for Kaida. She was almost positive it was the only thing he smiled about. Kaida didn’t like the fact he stopped smiling. He made funny faces. He was a weirdo, she loved him though. He didn’t say much. He wasn’t like uncle Jupiter. All uncle Jupiter talked about was this blonde lady. Kaida could dimly remember one time where he was more chatty than usual.

“I messed up Kaida. She was perfect. She never really understood how perfect she was. She was gorgeous. She didn’t care about what I was.”
Kaida nodded her head. Uncle Jupiter was an idiot. He need to bring her flowers and duct tape.
“Her name is Eveline. I can’t believe I messed up so badly.”
Kaida was tempted to sigh. Uncle Jupiter was an idiot, again. He was going to need even more duct tape.
Uncle Jupiter laughed. “I can’t believe I’m telling this to a child. I’m glad you don’t understand.”
Kaida was tempted to scowl at uncle Jupiter. She understood perfectly. Eveline was a genius, uncle Jupiter was an idiot. It took her a long time to realize that in order for geniuses to exist, idiots must to.

Daddy glanced over at Kaida who was pretending to be asleep. It was hard making sure daddy smiled at least once a day. Kaida knew why he didn’t smile much and she knew how to fix it. She was just waiting to tell the right person. Daddy was in a hurry to make his potions that kept him from feeling. Uncle Jupiter and grandpa Jack would be back soon. She wanted daddy to understand that he didn’t have to hide. A lot of duct tape is needed to make a hiding place. You can’t waste your duct tape.



Daddy sighed and flipped open the pages of his book, mesmerized by it’s contents. He murmured under his breath,”I promise I will be there for her Clarissa.” Kaida was tempted to cry for daddy to pick her up. Jake was staring at her curiously again. He was her partner in crime. Partners didn’t tattle on each other. She was tempted to glare at him. He better keep his end of the deal.



Kaida fell asleep on watch and before she knew it daddy was triumphantly holding a potion. No! This wasn’t suppose to happen! No potions! Potions were bad! She knew they weren’t good for daddy. The woman had so said so. Everyone thinks Kaida doesn’t understand or can’t see them. Silly adults.



Liam stared at Kaida who peered at him. “I’m glad you don’t understand everything that is happening around you Kaida.” Daddy seemed to lose it everytime he said Kaida’s name. She just needed her plan to work. Daddy tried to have her speak. Kaida didn’t want to. She was waiting for the right moment and the right words. She couldn’t waste the opportunity. You only got to speak once. She wasn’t going to waste her first words. That would be silly. Daddy lifted her up out of the suffocating seat and tossed her in the hair. Grandpa Jack wouldn’t have liked it, but Kaida loved being tossed into the air.



Daddy was snoring soon enough, exhausted from staying up all night. Kaida finally allowed herself some sleep. Her dreams were plagued with strange people she had never met. The book was even stranger. Weird.



Kaida woke up, stunned. Grandpa Jack and uncle Jupiter were there. How did she not know that? Daddy was holding her still. Kaida wiped her eyes sleepily and tugged on daddy’s hair. He scowled at her and she giggled. Daddy made funny faces. Kaida tugged on daddy’s hair.
“Ow Kaida. Really?” Kaida pointed at uncle Jupiter. Jupiter rolled his eyes.

“I swear she is out to get me.” Kaida scowled at uncle Jupiter. Uncle Jupiter laughed. Laughed. Kaida was very tempted to insult uncle Jupiter. “Liam, she is a mini you. The world doesn’t need more Liams.” Daddy scowled at uncle Jupiter. Kaida smiled. Grandpa Jack just chuckled. Kaida hid her face. She wanted to fall asleep again.



Grandpa Jack glanced at daddy worriedly. Kaida was glad she wasn’t the only one worried about daddy.



Kaida yawned and stared out the window, waiting for the strange woman to arrive. Any day now. She had something important to tell her. Maybe she would even do some paperwork for her when she was older. Nah. She would die before she did that. Daddy held her and pointed something out.
“What is that Kaida?”
A melted snowman.
“Can you tell me what it is?”
You already know. Duh.
Daddy sighed. Kaida glanced back at grandpa Jack and gave him a smile only they shared. He understood stuff daddy didn’t. Kaida didn’t want to stay things like “melted snowman.” That was boring.



Daddy droned on and on about the stupid, melted snowman. Kaida was irritated and just wanted to be put down. Grandpa Jack would understand. Kaida didn’t care about melted snowmen or snow. She just wanted to torture uncle Jupiter and plot with Jake.



“Let me hold her Liam.” Daddy handed her over to grandpa Jack who was delighted to hold her. “Aren’t you adorable!” Grandpa Jack cooed at Kaida and she couldn’t help but look bewildered. Grandpa Jack was strange. She wasn’t a bird. Maybe she got this whole language thing wrong. Jack did meow and occasionally hiss at uncle Jupiter after all. He was the best. Kaida loved her grandpa Jack though.



“I think Kaida wants to be put down.” Grandpa Jack said kindly. Kaida was tempted to sigh with relief. Exactly. Grandpa Jack could read minds it seemed like. Grandpa Jack glanced at daddy. They did their weird adult thing where they talk without talking. Grandpa Jack and daddy went outside leaving Kaida to torture uncle Jupiter. Kaida smiled.



Uncle Jupiter peered at Kaida. “You really don’t know what you lost until you lose it Kaida.” Uncle Jupiter said quietly. Kaida was tempted to smack him. Does this Eveline person even exist? Instead Kaida sighed. Uncle Jupiter glared at her. “What was that for Kaida?” Kaida laughed and pointed at Jupiter.  Uncle Jupiter held her and flipped her over to the point she was she was upside down, kicking her feet in the hair. Kaida smacked Jupiter and giggled.

“Jupiter! What are you doing to Kaida?!”
Uncle Jupiter almost dropped Kaida.
Kaida pretended to cry.
“Look what you have done!”
Jupiter glared at Kaida and she gave him a little smile. She continued her fit.



Grandpa Jack took Kaida carefully. “There, there, Kaida. Don’t let him bother you.”
I don’t. Daddy shook his head mockingly. “What have you done to my child Jupiter? She better not start running away. You better stop teaching her your ways, bloodsucker.”
Uncle Jupiter looked offended.



Kaida hid her head as grandpa Jack somehow managed to get her to fall asleep.



Kaida woke up, startled. The adults were all talking. Very important. Grandpa Jack was giving daddy that weird stare again. Kaida climbed into her walker and started listening to the adults conversation.
“You need to bury her.”
Daddy shook his head.
“Later.”
“Liam.”
“I said later.”
Jupiter snickered at Kaida and pointed at her. She had ran into a wall on accident. That was it. She was done being quiet and listening to that idiot. She lifted up her tiny hands.



All the sudden uncle Jupiter was on leaning against the sofa. The chair he was sitting in was tossed to the side. Kaida’s favorite toy, her pet rabbit, was there to comfort him. Kaida crawled over to him and avoided the shell shocked adults. “Stop talking about Eveline. No run away you idiot. Duct tape and flowers solve everything.” Look at what he had done! She didn’t want to say that for her first words! Kaida scowled at uncle Jupiter. Daddy puffed up with pride and grandpa Jack bursted out laughing between glancing concerned looks at uncle Jupiter. Kaida was aggravated. “Does she exist?” This caused daddy to burst out laughing once again.



Uncle Jupiter cleared his throat and got up. “Well I guess I will see you and your mini you tomorrow. If you ever need anything-” Daddy rolled his eyes. “Not you and the old man too? Have fun with the lecture over Eveline. Make sure she actually exists.” Daddy started laughing again.

Uncle Jupiter glanced at Kaida. “Good by devil child.”
Kaida smiled. “Stop inswulting yourself.”
Grandpa Jack gave her a hug and said bye to her.
“I knew you were a genius Kaida.”
“I know.”



Kaida fell asleep once again until she woke up to the sound of her daddy screaming. Kaida climbed over her crib and transported her bunny to him. He had his head in one of his hands.
“I can’t do this Clarissa.” Kaida tilted her head at him. He didn’t acknowledge her. Daddy wasn’t smirking or scowling at someone. He needed a lot of duct tape. Kaida crawled towards him and waited.



She finally spoke. “No potions.” She wasn’t sure who had put the idea in her head in the first place. Daddy sighed. “You don’t understand Kaida.” Kaida was stubborn. “No potions. Potions are bad. I’m not stupwid.” Daddy smiled at her. “You are already so much like your mother.”
Kaida glared at her father. “No potions.”



“No potions.” He agreed hesitantly. He lifted Kaida up and she was left to scream with joy. “As long as you stay with me nutter, I promise.” Kaida hugged daddy. “Deal.”

I love this chapter so, so much!
I almost feel bad for poor Uncle Jupiter.
Almost.

Also, can I say how much I adore the title "grandpa Jack?" That's so perfect for him. He's nothing but a big grandpa at heart. I also love how Jupiter is going to get a nice lecture about Eveline. It'll be great. I can almost hear Jack now.
"Jupiter, let me call her and you can talk to her."
"No, Jack, that's not a good idea."
"I can tell you've been really bothered by this. It's not good to let these things sit inside, and do you know..."

I just love everything about this chapter.

Re: Another Labelle Story - Chapter 12 - Where Are You?
« Reply #47 on: May 01, 2016, 06:58:59 PM »

Clarissa closed her eyes and was engulfed into the darkness from all the funny shapes and her beautiful little girl. Where was Liam? Who was Liam? Clarissa shook her head. Where was she? Clarissa stared around the large, open field. Was she dead? Clarissa flinched at the memory of the woman smirking. She was dead. Where was she? Where was her family? Clarissa closed her eyes and let the pain sink in. She couldn’t remember their names. She couldn’t remember anyone’s names.

Clarissa closed her eyes and collapsed to the ground. Luke? No, Liam. Don’t forget Liam. Tears started streaming down her face. Where was he? Where was that little girl? Happiness had been in her grasp and she had wasted it. Took it for granted. She was a fool. “Where are you? Why didn’t you come for me?” Her heart was torn into pieces that were being swept away. She hadn’t even been able to say goodbye to him. Why hadn’t he showed up at the hospital? Clarissa shook her head. She got up, wiped the tears off her face and looked around. All she could see was miles of fields that seemed to gone on forever.



She was determined to get back, somehow. She started walking south, assuming that there must be an ending to this thing. She needed a distraction. Yes, a blissful distraction. She had never thought she would be walking in an empty field for the little girl she was missing and him. Silent tears started falling down her face again. She needed to stop this. She would find them again. Clarissa started ranting to no one in particular. “I finally found someone and I get smuggled with a pillow! A pillow! I can’t find an end to this stupid field and I can’t find anyone!” Clarissa shook her head. Resentment grew stronger with every step until she felt she could no longer keep it contained. She wanted to scream at something, blame something or anyone. So she did. “Where were you? Why didn’t you come? Am I stuck in this place for the rest of eternity? Is anyone here?!”



She was talking to the sky. She was talking to the freaking sky. Clarissa peered at the sky. It wasn’t the sky she was use to. How many days, months, years had she been dead? Clarissa started screaming again. She was losing her mind that was for sure. “Someone answer me! I can’t be the only one in this place! Am I dead? Where are you people?!” Every step fueled that she couldn’t contain. Why bother? Who cared anyways? She was losing her mind. Suddenly someone answered back. “Not quite.” Clarissa stopped in tracks and peered into the field looking for the source. “What? I’m not dead?” The voice seemed aggravated. Oh great, she was hearing voices. “You were suppose to become the next goddess of the Moon until someone decided to change fate.”

Clarissa laughed. “I’m not a goddess. I’m dead. D-E-A-D. Game over.” The voice audibly sighed. “You aren’t dead. You need to wake up and to do so you need to complete a few tasks.” Clarissa finally felt a glimmer of hope in the barren field. “What tasks, oh great voice in my head?” Clarissa smirked. She felt a pang of sadness where her heart should have been beating. “You need to restore a wolf clan and manage to avoid the time keepers.” Clarissa tilted her head. “The whats?” “Just keep heading south. This isn’t an issue that will be easily fixed. You will need to have 9 generations of descendants so you can ascend to goddesshood. You will still be in charge of carrying out the duties of the goddess of moon and restoring the wolf packs.”



Clarissa sighed. “That sounds like a big job. I’m a scientist that can’t keep a job. I’m the person that got smuggled with a pillow. I’m not a goddess.” Somehow Clarissa kept heading south even if she didn’t believe what the voice was promising. Having an ounce of hope that she could get back to them was better than nothing. Clarissa held her head high and didn’t let anything destroy her. Not even death it seemed. “You are my replacement. Get use to it.” Clarissa heard the anger in the voice. “What is your name anyways, oh wise voice in my head that isn’t clearly caused by a hallucination?” The voice chuckled. “Nyx Niccoli.” Clarissa looked around for something and her hands landed on a leather journal. Huh. “Didn’t I have this when I was alive Nyx?” Nyx didn’t answer back for a long time and when she did her voice was full of suspicion. “Where did you get that? Where did you get Fate’s journal?” Clarissa shrugged. “I don’t know.” She could see a furry shape coming into her distance. “Wrong answer.” Clarissa blacked out, not knowing what was going to happen.



=======================================================================

Three wolves with eyes that seemed to stare into her soul surrounded her. She was too weak to try anything. If she was dead it didn’t matter. One wolf, the alpha it seemed, nudged her gently to get up. In return, Clarissa gave it a hostile glare. It growled at her. The other two stared at her with those same uncanny eyes. Clarissa stumbled back looking for something to throw. All her bravado was gone. “Leave me alone!”



The wolves slowly backed off and waited for something, anything it seemed. Clarissa was searching around for something that could be used as a weapon if things went badly. Anything. Everything. Clarissa stared at the wolves. What were they waiting for? Out of the glimpse of her eye she saw a young woman walking towards her. She smiled. Clarissa stared at her and finally realized was so strange about the woman. She had the exact same eyes as her. This didn’t comfort Clarissa one bit, it unnerved her.  Who was this woman? The woman offered Clarissa a hand. Clarissa was tempted to punch the woman for no reason. Clarissa shook her head, where would that get her?

So she hesitantly took the woman’s hand. She was beautiful in her own light. Her hair was so light it was almost appeared to be white. It was absurd to Clarissa. The thing that unnerved her the most was that the woman had her eyes. The woman stared at Clarissa a little too long to be normal. Her eyes said what words could not. Clarissa cleared her throat. “Where am I? The woman shook her head. “I don’t know who you are speaking of. You are on a werewolf reservation.” Clarissa rolled her eyes and started laughing. “There is no such thing as a werewolf reservation.” Clarissa turned around to the largest wolf and continued laughing. “This isn’t real!

The woman smiled sadly at her. “Your father didn’t teach you anything about where he came from?” Clarissa’s smile faded. “What?” The woman stared impatiently past Clarissa and gestured for the wolves to go away. All of them left except one. The woman rolled her eyes. “I will be fine.” The wolf stared at Clarissa that was more human-like than wolf-like and gracefully walked away. Clarissa stared at the woman. “My mother has a strange family and you are telling me my father has a strange family too?” The woman chuckled. “He was a follower of Nyx.”



Clarissa clawed at her memory for the name. Nyx. Nyx Niccoli. She wasn’t sure she had heard the woman right. “Who?” The woman shook her head. “He was a follower of the woman you will be replacing.” Clarissa shook her head. I need to find a way to get back, him.” Clarissa couldn’t remember his name in that moment. The woman stared curiously at her. “Who?” Clarissa shook her head again. “I don’t know. I need to get back. You don’t understand. I’m not done. I can’t leave him.” The woman’s smile faded. “He will heal. I’m sorry this was forced onto you. Visiting him would just make it more painful for him to move on. Come along.” The woman started walking and Clarissa found herself walking towards her. Clarissa stared at the ground. Nyx had promised her that she would be able to get back to him when she “waked up.” She would find a way back to him even if it destroyed her in the process. He would heal, but she wouldn’t. She didn’t want to be anywhere else but with him and the little girl.


=======================================================================

Entering the reservation Clarissa couldn’t help but have a deja vu feeling. Grace explained it to her on the way. “You are technically neither alive nor dead, someone needs to replace Nyx. She died and no one knows exactly who killed her. She was one of the oldest of the gods. Your spirit is bounded to this reservation. This is an extremely unique case. If a replacement for Nyx had been able you would have gone to the World of Essence.” Clarissa had stared at her. “The what?” Grace smiled. “The World of Essence is where those ever touched with goddess or god power will go. They are the ones that choose the next gods and goddesses. Recently the god of Death was replaced.” Grace tensed up at the word “god of Death.” Clarissa didn’t pry why Grace tensed up. “Who replaced him?” Grace laughed lightly. “Maleficent Labelle.” Clarissa grinned like a madwoman. “That explains a lot.”

Children ran up to her and stared at her in awe. Clarissa felt a sharp pain hit her when she saw the innocent faces gazing up at her with awe. It reminded her of someone. She was rushed around by small children showing her the place. Clarissa couldn’t help but filled with awe. The place was amazing. The people were self sufficient. One child tugged on Grace’s dress. “He is bothering us! The one with the hat!” Grace knelt down and stared the child in the eyes. “What has he done this time?” The girl shrugged. “He keeps asking for Alice. I think he is lost.” Clarissa couldn’t help but have yet another deja vu feeling when the little girl mentioned “the one with the hat.” Grace frowned. “You never told me what he looked like.” The little girl shrugged. “I can’t remember. All I remember is the hat and him muttering about Alice.”  The little girl ran off as Grace peered over at what Clarissa assumed was the girl's parents.



“I think she just made the person up. She is a child so that isn’t that big of a deal.” Grace smiled at Clarissa. The whole situation unsettled Clarissa though. “Are you sure?” Grace chuckled. “Children are strange.” Clarissa felt another pang where her heart should have been beating. Everything she had never known she had wanted until she had lost it had slipped out of the palm of her hand. Clarissa closed her eyes. If she could have one second, one minute, with him what would she say? Clarissa tapped Grace on the shoulder. “Is it possible I could see them?” Grace stared at her with a mixture of understanding and pity. “You wouldn’t give him the option to move on.” Clarissa snapped. “I don’t care! I just need to see him one more time! Just one more time.” Grace nodded. “Later.” Clarissa felt her hands clench into fists. Later? Later!

How long would it take for her to forget him? How long until she couldn’t even remember who he was? She was in a delicate balance between life and death which was showing to have consequences. Grace led her through the reservation where people were daring to catch a glimpse of their new “goddess.” She wasn’t a goddess. She was just herself. Mothers doted at their children that ran around like untamed animals while wolves circled the reservation, restless. Clarissa tapped Grace on the shoulder who jerked up in frustration. “What is going on? Why are they still in their animal forms?” Grace wouldn’t look Clarissa in the eye. “Ever since Nyx died the situation has declined. Everything is out of balance. Soon enough the time keepers are going to come.” Clarissa glared daggers at Grace. “The what? No one really explained them to me.” Grace sighed. “They will be forced to restore order to the situation.” Clarissa sighed. “What does that mean?” Grace crossed her arms against her chest. “You will know soon enough.”



Grace waved her forward into a large house. “This is where you will be staying for a while. I can introduce you to the families later. Just get some rest, or meditate. I’m sure this is a lot to take in.” The door slammed shut, leaving Clarissa in the darkness. Alone. “Nyx, where are you? Nyx?” No one answered. Clarissa took a deep breath and decided she needed to see how he was doing, anything that could help her. She found herself weaving through the shadows fairly easily. She was overwhelmed with the feeling of power she had never knew she had. Liam was right there in front of her. Clarissa rushed out to embrace him, but couldn’t reach him. A curious face stared at her and smiled. That was when the horrid screaming started and didn’t stop. Clarissa fell to the ground in agony. She yearned to comfort him and started rocking back and forth. “I’m fine Liam. I will get back to you Liam. Please. Stop doing this.”



Liam had his head in his hands. It never struck Clarissa how much he loved her until that moment. He whispered a few words that she could barely catch,”I can’t do this Clarissa.” Clarissa reached out for him but only grabbed at darkness. “No more potions! Stop! I’m not worth it Liam.” Surprisingly a gentle face that had Clarissa’s hair and her father’s perfect, green eyes rushed to comfort her father.



The little girl spoke.
“No potions.” Clarissa jerked up. How did she hear her? The little girl had seemed surprised herself. Liam shook his head, barely recognizable as the arrogant man she had first met.
“You don’t understand Kaida.” The little girl seemed to smile at Clarissa. Clarissa tried to smile back. She spoke with more confidence that Clarissa could have ever managed that was clearly from her father.
“No potions. Potions are bad. I’m not stupwid.”
Liam gave her his signature smile.
“You are already so much like your mother.”
Clarissa smiled sadly at the little girl. She did have her determination, that was sure with Liam’s confidence. A dangerous combination it seemed.
Kaida glared daggers at her father. “No potions.”
Clarissa was right. Deadly combination.
Liam agreed hesitantly with Kaida. “No more potions.” Clarissa didn’t even realize it but she was remembering names again. Her smile got wider. Liam shouldn’t be torturing herself over her anyways. She wasn’t worth it. She loved him so much and wanted the best for him.



Liam lifted Kaida in the air and she started screaming with joy. Clarissa laughed. Her little baby girl. “As long as you stay with me nutter, I promise.” Clarissa’s heart plummeted. Kaida agreed. “I promise.” Clarissa left after that and was left in the shadows alone. Should she let him heal and stop torturing him? Clarissa sobbed. Had she ever cried so much in her life? Clarissa laughed bitterly. She just wanted the best for him. It would be selfish for her to walk back into his life after tearing it apart. She would only go back if he wanted her to. She needed to raise her little girl and maybe, just maybe she could go back to Liam. She had been selfish and wasted precious seconds with him. She was a fool. Clarissa sighed and was left to pick up the pieces of her heart. “Let's get started on this deal of ours Nyx.” “Took you long enough.”


=======================================================================


Maleficent learned that goddesses couldn’t die easily when someone decided to run her over with a car. She was walking around the city staring at the bright lights that haunted her at every twist and turn. Unaccumulated cellar. The game was not an easy one to win if you didn’t know how to cheat. Staying alive was a difficult thing to do in this city. The car jerked to a stop but it was too late. It was Maleficent’s move. With a gesture of her hand the car flipped over. Anyone that could save the now severely injured in the car would think think they were just seeing things as their lives flashed in front of their eyes. The goddess of Death couldn’t have glared at them and walked away, right? Maleficent stared at the place where her very dead friend had been. She couldn’t have saved her. Nondivisional bulldog. What would have happened to Clarissa and the baby? They would have both ended up dead.

That is what Maleficent kept telling herself. At the end of the day Clarissa and Megan were both still dead. Dead wasn’t the irreversible. Being dead and going to the World of Essence was. Actually, Maleficent didn’t know where their spirits actually were. She was a sad excuse of a Death goddess. Usually the bodies of those who were destined to go to the World of Essence disintegrated after they died. Neither did that and she couldn’t find either of their spirits. She had dreaded calling Charlie, her father, to inform him his last child was now dead. Maleficent flinched at the memory. The funeral had been depressing. Maleficent usually liked funerals. Clarissa’s though? Maleficent didn’t think Liam would ever have the guts to have one for her.

It wasn’t his fault. Maleficent didn’t even know how Clarissa had really died. Maleficent sighed and stared at the wreckage of the car. Back to work. You would think being the goddess of Death would have more to do with death and less paperwork. It doesn’t. Maleficent made a gesture with her hand and a portal opened. Maleficent glanced over her shoulder, still surprised that in mere seconds mortals ceased to be able to see her. She stepped through the portal to her realm. The realm of Death.



With a gesture of her hand the door’s to her castle bursted open. Maleficent stared around the castle, waiting for her best friend to come back from behind her and start rambling about the vastness of the castle. Maleficent closed her eyes and just for a moment, even a small one, she could see her friend jumping in the piles of paperwork and running around the halls of the castle. Maleficent opened her eyes and was only met with the loneliness of her great power. A few moments ago she had been a teenager that was forced to travel through time cursing people for Fate for her Family. A few moments ago she had something she could honestly say she lived for. This, though? This was death. Maleficent rushed up the stairs, not taking a second to admire the fine design of them. Subnormal bicycling.

Maleficent navigated past the maze of rooms in her castle until she finally reached her study. She started checking off everything that needed to be addressed at that exact moment and things that could wait. Maleficent closed her eyes and allowed herself only a few sparse moments to mediate. Wearied raspberry. Lurching bandit. Chilling parasite. She reclined in the back of her chair as the fire in her study suddenly roared to life. Maleficent frowned. A god was trying to break her barrier. She had been ignoring the council for too long it seemed. Not her problem. They could wait.

With a snap of her fingers the articles on her desk started floating as Maleficent filled out the paperwork with inhuman speed. Everyone who passed through the gates of her realm had paperwork that needed to be filled out. She finished the papers with ease as she looked for Megan and Clarissa’s. It would be the easiest option to find out their cause of death in the paperwork. Maleficent liked to keep tabs on everything going on but she was new. Her other option was to mess with time and watch their deaths happen.

Maleficent’s gaze skirted to the telephone that was ringing. She didn’t have time for this. The fire roared to life once again. Maleficent rolled her eyes. 
“What do you want Agonin?”
“For the good of everyone stop this and come back to it later.”
Maleficent frowned and rolled her eyes.
“I’m multitasking.”
“You are an untrained goddess.”
“What? I’m doing paperwork.”
“With the death keepers it is urgent you need to start your training.”
“Later.” Maleficent didn’t even react to the news. Of course the council found out about them. The more you knew.
“That isn’t an option.”
Maleficent gestured for the objects to stop floating and resume their original place.

“Who is going to teach me? Adessi? I’m a HUGE fan of hers. Didn’t you know? Malice? I’m not his equal though. I should be the one bowing down before him clearly. Calypso? Wait. She is a little preoccupied right now.”
The world started spinning again or wait, was that just the fact everything in the room was floating? Maybe both. The paintings were insulting her again. How rude.
“Have you created the barrier/doorway between the living and the dead? Have you found a place to settle in at?  Do you have a system that can tell you everyone who's alive and everyone who's dead? Do you have followers to collect the souls finding their way to your realm? Do you know when and where people are going to die at? Do you have a book or two of all the living in it? Do you know how to fight to keep your domain when the death keepers rise?

Maleficent rose from her chair.
“ENOUGH. I get the idea Agonin. I will do my job and you will do yours.”
The fire roared to life once again and would not settle down.
Maleficent could hear Agonin’s frustration on the other side of the phone.
“You are starting to become Majnun.”
Maleficent laughed.
“You mean I’m doing my job that WELL already? Thank you. Tell the council I will meet with them soon enough.” With that Maleficent threw the phone at the wall. Maleficent mumbled under her breath,”I’m going to have to replace that.”
Suddenly Maleficent turned around and noticed the strange man’s presence. He was pouring tea and mumbling gibberish.



“Oiled hysteria. Death. Eeriest channeling. To. Electrifying geese. The. Marketable pickup. Red. Antiexpressionist bunk. Queen.”
Maleficent stared the strange man in the eye.
“What are you doing in my house. Only-” Maleficent’s eyes widened in surprise.
The strange man stared at her desk. “What such fine detail! The bunny rabbits will love this! Do you think the ostriches would be okay if I stole it? No! No! We can’t be having any of that, can we?” The man’s voice was at moments very low and at other moments very high.
Maleficent stared at the strange man’s hat and noted his obsession with tea. She was standing in the presence of a legend. She was standing in the presence of the Mad Hatter.



Maleficent laughed. She had once inspired to be like this man. She frowned. “Why are you here?”
The man’s fingers started tapping to the rhythm of the fire’s roars. Maleficent simply calmed the fire down with one look. A bubbly laughter came out of him. “It seems you are having a bad day. Would you like some tea?”
Maleficent ignored him. Anticryptic tryout. Uninstigated flatterer. Unstabbed maid.
“No. Why are you here?”



The Mad Hatter gestured for his teacup to stop floating.
“What a shame. I’m here to inform you about unjudicative sandstorm. Clarissa. The new goddess of the Moon. Killed by the unprovokable mini computer. Amelie. The new death keeper that has risen is unscratchable lollipop. Kaida.”
Maleficent felt suspicion rising in her.
“How did you get this information?” The Mad Hatter laughed and stirred his tea.
“I’m a priest of Time’s Past. Consider us even.” The Mad Hatter stared at his watch and frowned. “Tea time has come to an end my dear.” With a simple toss of his hat the Mad Hatter flickered out of the room like he had never existed. Maleficent shaked her head and stared at the teacup that had been there moments before. The information had shocked her. What was the most disturbing bit of information was that if she was right about the Mad Hatter’s real identity then she would be thrown into not one, but two wars.
                     
================================================================
 Jupiter closed his eyes for just a moment, he could see her. The way her cheeks turned pink when she was embarrassed, how she was too excited and has trouble keeping secrets, and how she always smelled like flowers, honey, and fire. She was forever optimistic and her laugh was adorable even if she alway denied it. For a moment he almost forgot he was a monster. Jupiter flinched from the memory of Eveline at death’s door.

He couldn’t protect her. All he ever brought was destruction to the people he loved. The best thing he could do was stay away from them. Every step he took closer to them endangered their lives. Especially hers. There was no doubt in his mind that he would die for her. If the situation was different, if he was only human. Kaida stared at Jupiter curiously and offered him a mischievous smile. “Are you still bwooding over Eveliwe?”



“You don't understand, she's everything good in the world, and I'm everything terrible. As much as I want her, I can't stand the thought of hurting her." Jupiter’s eyes held the pain of what felt to be a thousand deaths. Kaida sighed and plopped down. “Yow are an idiot. I’m not sure how much flowers and duwct tape can fix this.” Jupiter just ended up putting his head in his hands. He was a monster. “Why do you have an obsession with duct tape?” Kaida grinned at him. “Duct tape can fix anything that is broken stupwid.” “I’m stupid Kaida. I’m terrible.” Kaida rolled her eyes. “Well duh. If you weren’t stupwid you wouldn’t be the Uncle Jupiter I wove.” Jupiter gave Kaida one of his rare smiles.

 “I will protect you no matter the cost is and that is why I’m going to stay away. You will hurt after awhile but you will be safe.” Kaida sighed. “The onwly way I can be happy is if you find Eveliwe and stop bwooding. I want stupwid cousins like you. Plus, that cweepy dude with yellow eyes is startwing to freak me out.” Jupiter turned around and looked in the direction Kaida was pointing at. He saw nothing. Kaida frowned. “I know it is rude to poinwt Kewfka!” Jupiter sprinted outside to where Liam and Jack were having a deep conversation. Jack and Liam stopped and stared at Jupiter. “What is going on? Where is Kaida?” Jupiter pointed inside the house. “She mentioned that Kefka was watching her.” Jack just waved Jupiter away. “It is just the Keepers.” Liam smirked. “My daughter better not be torturing them just yet.” Jupiter walked back into the house, his face burning. Inside he found the toddler watching the news. He had learned not to question what was normal and abnormal.

“Another woman attacked in Midnight Hollow and this has randomly turned from random killings to an epidemic. The victim’s family has successfully been identified. The woman appears to be in her early 20’s, and has darker skin and blonde hair.  The woman was rushed to the hospital after several puncture wounds to vital organs but was declared dead this morning. More on-”



Jupiter didn’t notice that he was clutching the television remote in his hand. With a click of a button the television turned off and the remote shattered in his hand. Jupiter closed his eyes and didn’t notice his hands were trembling. His voice was surprisingly. “Jack, where did Eveline and her family go?” Jack walked in the house glancing at Kaida who was staring at Jupiter curiously.

Jack replied calmly,”Midnight Hollow Jupiter. What is the matter?” Jupiter just pointed at the television. “I have to go to Midnight Hollow.” Jack sighed. “Okay Jupiter. Let me just tell Liam though, okay?” Liam gave Jack a little nod and he sighed with relief. “I’m coming with you Jupiter.” Jupiter’s eyes almost watered. After all this time Jack still loved him? Jupiter nodded and gave Jack a small smile. As they were walking out of Liam’s house only one though appeared in Jupiter’s head, Please be okay Eveline Reaper.


===========================================================

Thank you so much LivvieLove for building the reservation! I appreciate it! They would have been living in boxes if I had built the reservation... Also, thank you for allowing me to have Jupiter and Jack for a little while! I hope Jupiter can get back to Eveline before Kaida attempts to duct tape his mouth shut.

I LOVE THIS CHAPTER SO MUCH.

Oh those wolves were fantastic! I loved Maleficent's study and the MAD HATTER! AH!
DEATH TO THE RED QUEEN.
XD

I have so much I want to say about this chapter! =)
First of all - ouch. My heart aches for Clarissa.
Second of all - I'm sending a high five to Maleficent.
Third of all - Kaida should duct tape Jupiter's mouth anyways (perhaps then he'll feel safer around Eveline)?

<3 <3 <3 I can't say how much I adore this chapter, words just can't express. Thanks for taking care of my idiot Jupiter and Jack. :3
Now we just need to get Clarissa back home.

Oh the feels! The feels! There is so much to love in this chapter, that I couldn't possibly start to list them all. But, I just had to comment on the last bit:

Jupiter is going to Evie! Whoot! *smustles*

I know Clari will find her way, Liam and Kaida need her. And Mali?!? OMG, when she thought she was going to go and witness their deaths, my first thought was "yeah! Go kick some rear!" Until I realised that she wouldn't be allowed to change it anyway :-(
