Lizzie, Daven and the gient belong to
me. That's all.
The Sun Will Shine Again
Remy awoke with a scream and sat straight up in the bed.
Feathers were flying all around the room, he had ripped his
pillow to shreds. The sheets where tangled around his legs
like snakes, he was covered in sweat, but he was freezing.
And he had no idea what had made he wake up like this, the
dream having already faded.
Taking a deep breath, he tried to calm himself. The woman
next to him was trying to calm him down with soft words and
sweet kisses. Her face was drown back in concern, and he leaned
over to kiss her. Her lips still had the lingering taste of
cherry bounce on them. He pushed her black hair away from
her shoulder, and began living a trail of kisses down her
neck. "I 'kay, Juliet." He whispered between kisses.
"Jut' a bad dream is all."
He felt her stiffen under him, he lifted his head, and was
promptly slapped across the cheek. "Where do you get
off calling me 'Juliet'? My name's Candy!"
It was cold. That was all, just cold. There was no wind,
no clouds in the sky, nor was there a moon or stars. Only
the giant and the unconscious boy were there. No one else.
There was no sound, and no light. It was just cold.
The ground ended in a jagged cliff a few feet away. The giant
pushed the car those few feet, then watched as it plummeted
to the bottom of the gorge. It rolled three times, four, five,
then came to a rest. It was no more then a second later when
the gas tank caught fire and the whole thing blew up, catching
a few trees and some dead grass a flame with it.
The giant could feel the heat rising from the flaming mass,
and as the fire licked and spat, a breeze came up, spreading
the flames more over the dead foliage. Now there was sound,
and there was light. And soon there would be people. But no
one would know about the giant or the unconscious boy he now
carried in his arms. No, they would be long gone before any
"Dat wasn' de plain, Essex!" Belle said, her voice
barely above a whisper, as the girl collapsed.
"Perhaps not. But it is now." Sinister picked the
girl up and started away.
"Non, I take de girl! You n't do what you say you would,
so I take her!"
"And what will LeBeau say when you return with his daughter,
and she tells him you were responsible for her mother's death?"
Belle's heart seemed to stop. She had wanted revenge, had
wanted to make the woman suffer, but not like this! This ...
this was beyond suffering! And a piece of her had wanted to
whisk the girl away before she'd seen her mother's torn and
bleeding body. But she had stopped herself from reaching out
to the girl.
She didn't care what happened to her. She didn't!
But if Remy ever knew...
Somewhere, deep inside her, she really did love Remy LeBeau.
And she didn't want to know what he would do if he found out
she had helped in the murder of his mistress.
"Fine." She said, defeated. "Take her. But
don' ever let her come back t' N'Awlens. She don' belong dere
no more." She took a step up to the child and looked
at her. She was asleep and looked peaceful, except that her
face was covered in her mother's blood. Her clothes were torn
and muddy, she looked like she'd been crawling though the
sewers. She smelled like it too. Her right hand was clinched
tight, a thin gold chain slipped between her fingers.
"Wait." Belle said to Sinister as she reached out
and opened the girl's hand. The gold was indeed a chain. A
heart shaped locket was on the chain, and Belle opened it.
Inside was a picture of Juliet on one side and Remy on the
other. Belle pulled the chain from Lizzie's hand, and placed
it around her neck.
The girl had nothing now. No family, no home. And it was
all because Belle had wanted revenge. Letting her keep the
necklace was the least she could do.
