Author's Note: okay I'm so sorry for the wait. Here's the new chapter. Italics means a dream. By the way, this happens sometime between when she woke up in the last chapter and when she fell asleep lol.
I am running down a slimy hall way. No idea how in the world I got here. I finally reach the bottom and come to a lake. I leave the lake and go around it to where a small pathway is. I see a faint light. "wow. I hope I'm not dead," I continue following the light until it comes to a small house. I enter the house…."This must be where Erik lives… yes it is." I go inside. I pass a mirror and look at myself. I look totally different! I have brown curly huge hair, my boobs are huge and my waist is tiny. I give myself a confused look and continued on. Every mirror I pass from that point on is broken and laying on the cold, stone floor. I pass them and run down a small hallway careful not to step on the glass. I enter a room and see a man lying on the bed. I turn him over and discover it to be a dead… Erik.
I woke up with a start. Erik wasn't home yet. Where was he? I jumped up and looked at the clock. 9 hours. You would think that Erik would be home right? He wasn't… Something was defiantly wrong. I got up and went to the garage. We had brought my car over from my dorm a week ago. I climbed in and started the car. It made a soft purring sound and then roared to life. I backed out the garage and turned onto the street. I had no idea where to look. I decided to look at the school first.
I turned into the parking lot and cut the gas. I got out knowing something was wrong. I saw his car sitting empty next to mine. I went to his office and knocked on the door. No reply. BY now I was thinking all sorts of things… where could he be? What could have happened? His car is here…. Why wasn't he opening the door? Could he be… dead? No I won't think that… He's… sleeping. I tried the door knob. It was… open. That was odd… he never left his office unopened… in it or not. I went in panicking. I walked to the desk and flipped on the lamp sitting next to it. There lay… Erik. I screamed and jumped back. "Erik! Erik! Listen to me! Can you here me? Erik! Look at me!" I lifted his head up. It was ghostly white. I screamed and let his head fall back to the desk. This seemed to wake him. He groaned and looked up. Erik? Are you alright? I said relieved at once. He fell from the chair onto the carpeted floor. A mirror fell and broke… Things were beginning to seem familiar… Had something like this happened before? The dream. I remembered it now. Everything seemed to be flooding back… the man the mirrors.. That meant that Erik was already dead… or soon to be. I ran around to the other side of the desk and cradled his head in my arms. "Erik… don't leave me please!"
"Shh." He replied brokenly. "Quiet my dear. Listen to me. When Christine left me… She took my mortality. Most would think that a good thing… but when you have a face like mine… You would not think so. You gave it back. You taught me to love again. I love you. I love you." He immediately eurupted into a coghing fit.
"Erik! Let me call the fire department! You'll be fine! Hold on-"
"Shh. Quiet now. They can't do anything, love. It's time. You taught me to love and that's all I needed."
"I've let you down! I didn't save you! I was trying but I… Oh Erik."
"You did save me… It I… I l..o..v.e.. y..y..o..u. He said. And then… he died in my arms. I froze. I couldn't express the emotion I felt in my heart. He- my Erik was gone. I could believe it. "Erik! ERIK! NOO! Erik… please!" and then I crumpled into a heap on the ground next to my love. I held tight to him. I climbed in between his arms and cried. I don't know how long I cried. After a while… I numbed.
"Cancel the bus. They're both dead."
"What do you think happened to them?"
"My guess is as good as your's, Jim."
"Should we contact any one?"
"I checked 'em both… Neither had any family."
"So sad when things like this happen."
"Think we should donate their bodies to science seeing as how no one would be there to burry them…"
"What happened here? Where's the… Oh my gosh… Elizabeth…"
"You know her miss?"
"She was my college roommate… and that's my music instructor… What happened?"
"We won't know until we can get an autopsy report. Do you have any idea why they are together?"
"No idea… I left for the holiday… He was her music professor too… He had a strange obsession with her…"
"We won't know till phorensics gets here… but like I said before… Your guess is as good as mine…
Well there we go. Depressing? I think so. Tell me what you think?
