From Author- Thank you, again, to my wonderful fans that keep leaving me such wonderful reviews every chapter! I absolutely love you guys for that! And I hope I hear more from you!
Well, you guys were waiting for more and wondering what I meant by more drama so, you shall find out in this chapter! Enjoy!
After Kai and I stayed where we were for a while, just holding each other and kissing, I finally managed to help Kai up and lead him out of the arena. Even though he protested, I made him go to the hospital. He needed to go to the hospital, badly!
Once we got there and I checked him in, the doctors wheeled him away to one of the rooms to take care of his wounds and such. While I waited in the waiting room, I flipped the t.v. in the room to the news to see what had happened with Tyson's battle against Garland.
"I don't believe this, ladies and gentleman! Not only did Kai score a win for the G-Revolution team when they needed it the most but now, Tyson has won his battle! Which means, it's now at two wins, two losses and one tie for this BEGA challenge." DJ announced but then, stopped for a moment when it looked like he was getting a word from someone.
"Folks, I just heard that there will be a tie-breaking round tomorrow! Both teams will have to choose one player from their teams to represent in the last battle! Who will fight who and which team will prevail? BEGA? Or the G-Revolutions? Find out tomorrow!"
After that, the doctors came in and informed me I could see Kai now. I got up and followed them to his room. He was lying on the hospital bed, wearing the hospital gown, an oxygen mask over his face and bandaged up nearly everywhere on his body. He looked as banged up as Tala did.
I walked over and pulled up a chair next to him. I sat down on it and gently rested my hand over his hand. I gave it a small squeeze, careful to not hurt him. Feeling my touch, Kai slowly opened his eyes about halfway and turned his head slightly towards me. I could see him trying to smile behind the oxygen mask.
"Mikayla…" He whispered through the mask but it sounded slightly muffled. I reached over and carefully removed the oxygen mask from his face. Then, as I began to sit back down, I planted a kiss on his cheek, lingering there for a moment before finally sitting down. A moment of silence then…
"I hate these places." He muttered, making me giggle a little. I moved some hair that was slightly covering his eyes.
"I know you do but, you needed to get those wounds treated." I said, smiling down at him. He rolled his eyes.
"I would've been fine." I sighed.
"You're so stubborn."
"Guilty as charged." A smirk formed on his face at that comment. This time, it was my turn to roll my eyes.
"Male egos." I mumbled and Kai made a slight movement with his shoulders but then, winced a little. I think he was trying to shrug but it obviously pained him to do so.
"Are you alright?" I asked, worry and concern flowing from my tone and face. Kai grunted a little and shifted his position slightly on the bed.
"Mikayla, please, you really need to stop worrying about me. I can handle myself and I can take a hit."
"You took way the hell more than just one hit today." This time, Kai's eyes narrowed slightly at me.
"You know what I mean." I sighed again.
"I know, Kai, but I can't help it. When I see you in pain like that, it pains me." I put my hand over my heart. "And not just physically but emotionally." I added, biting my bottom lip. Kai stared at me for a moment before reaching over and placing his hand on my cheek.
"I know, I feel the same way whenever I see you in pain. But, you know that I fought and won today because of you. I know I told you earlier that there were many reasons but, the biggest motivation I had to come back and win….was you, Mikayla." He said, stroking my cheek with his thumb. I sighed happily as I relished in the feel of Kai's touch.
"I know, Kai. And I love you even more for that." I said, placing my hand over the hand that was resting on my cheek. Kai pulled it down and kissed my knuckles before letting our conjoined hands rest on his chest. I felt the steady rhythm of his breathing, his chest going up and down with each breath, and I also felt the beating of his heart.
I then pulled myself off of the chair and climbed onto the bed next to Kai. He shifted a little to give me more room and I lay next to him, just gazing at his handsome features. I then shifted again so that my head lay on his chest but I was careful to not put too much pressure on him.
"Is this okay?" I asked. Kai raised his hand up to push my head down more and then, run the same hand through my hair. I smiled and closed my eyes, listening to the thump-thump of Kai's heartbeats.
I stayed with Kai as long as the nurses allowed me to. Otherwise, I would still be there with him. Anyway, I came home and noticed the others weren't there at the house so I figured they were out practicing or something. Strange though, they didn't go looking for me and Kai? Well, maybe they figured we were at the hospital.
Shrugging, I went into my room to just relax for a moment and write down in my journal what had happened today. When I was finished, I walked back out to the kitchen to get something to eat. When I passed by our backdoor, I noticed the sliding door was partially open. I blinked at it for a moment. I didn't recall it being open when I first got home. Maybe Tyson forgot to close it when he left? Or Grandpa? I shrugged it off and went over to close it.
I then headed into the kitchen, where I wanted to go, to grab an apple from the fridge. Taking a bite out of it, I suddenly heard a noise come from the other room. Stopping, I took a minute to listen in on what I just heard to see if the noise would come again. All I heard was some slight creaking, like someone was stepping on a piece of old wood.
"Hello? Tyson, is that you?" I called out. I listened in again to hear a response. When I didn't get one, I put my apple down and headed into the other room to find out where the noise was coming from. I cautiously walked through the hallway until I came to the living room. I looked around but then, my eyes set on something that didn't belong there. On the table, was a small, white bow with no arrow. I walked over to examine it more closely and found out it was a launcher…a beyblade launcher. My eyes widened as realization hit me. I knew who this launcher belonged to.
"Hello, Mikayla." His voice came from behind me, making me jump. I turned around and saw Brooklyn standing there but he looked different. His eyes had this crazy look in them and he had a big almost clown-like smile on, making his appearance all the more frightening. He also had this…aura around him and it sent shivers down my spine. All in all, Brooklyn was scaring me to death and what was scariest was that I was all alone with him.
"Hello, Brooklyn." I greeted, trying to maintain my composure. I didn't want him to see how scared I was…that would only make things worse.
"Lovely night, isn't it?" He asked, walking towards me. With each step he took, I moved back and away from him. He took notice of this and frowned slightly.
"What's wrong, Mikayla? There's nothing to be afraid of." He said, continuing to move closer. But I kept moving backwards.
"What are you doing here?" I asked, surprised by the strength in my voice. Brooklyn smiled at me but it was a very chilling smile.
"I came here for you, Mikayla. I want you to be by my side when I become known as the strongest blader in the world." He said, finally reaching me (because by now, I had backed up into the wall) and putting a hand on my cheek.
"I want you to be my queen." He said, running his fingers around my cheek and then down my neck. I felt disgusted by his touch and slapped his hand away.
"Don't touch me." I hissed. Brooklyn's eyes flashed with anger. He suddenly pinned my wrists above my head with his hands.
"I'll touch you all I want. You're mine." He said, his grip on my wrist tightening which made me wince. But, I then glared at him.
"No. I'm. Not!" I said through gritted teeth and kicked him in the shin, causing him to let me go and clutch his injured leg. This gave me the opportunity to run away…but I didn't get far. I don't know what caused me to trip but I suddenly lost my footing and fell on the ground. When I turned to see what caused my fall, I saw a dark purple/black mist wrapped around my ankle like a hand. I lay there, stunned and terrified by what I was seeing. What is this? A chuckle broke me from my thoughts and I looked up at Brooklyn.
"You won't get away from me that easily, my dear. In fact, you'll never get away from me!" He threw his head back and laughed. "We'll be together for all eternity!" He cried out and laughed manically once more. I stared up at him, terrified at what he might do to me. But, I couldn't let him take me away so easily.
"Let me go!" I cried, kicking my leg to try to rid it of the dark hand clinging to it. Brooklyn just chuckled.
"It's pointless to struggle." He said, reaching down, grabbing my wrist and pulled me to my feet. He picked up his launcher and strapped it on his arm.
"Time to go." He said and pulled me outside. I pulled and pushed at him, trying to get away but Brooklyn held firm.
"You might want to hold on." He said and then, suddenly, something sprouted from his back: wings. Giant, black-as-night wings. I stared, wide-eyed and stunned at them. How? How was he…? Where did they come from?
Next thing I knew, Brooklyn flapped his wings and we were ascending into the air. I shrieked and clung onto him, shutting my eyes tightly. I tried my best not to look down or even move; I was so terrified!
"Brooklyn! Please! Get us down from here!" I shouted, looking at him desperately. Didn't he see how scared I was? He just smiled at me and, for a moment, he looked like the old Brooklyn. Sweet and innocent.
"Don't worry, I won't let you fall." He vowed, suddenly changing my position so he was now holding me bridal style. I couldn't help but wrap my arms around his neck. He was the only thing keeping me from falling to my death and, just in case he lost his grip, I would still have a firm hold. I didn't trust him. What if his evil side took over again and tries to kill me? I wasn't taking any chances.
"Where are we going?" I asked after a few minutes.
"Where do you think? The BEGA building." He answered, never taking his eyes off his destination. I just lay there in his arms. What else could I do?
A few minutes later, I saw the BEGA building come into view. I tried not to groan at the sight of it. I really hated this place. After another two minutes, we landed in front of the building. Brooklyn's wings vanished and he began to walk inside with his hand clutching mine but I stopped us.
"Brooklyn, please, I want to go home." I pleaded. He only smiled at me.
"This is your home now." He said and began pulling me again but I wouldn't move. Then, Brooklyn's eyes flashed with anger again.
"You better cooperate, Mikayla, or else there will be Hell to pay." He threatened and by the look in his eyes and the tone of his voice, he meant it. Shivering from fear, I just nodded. He took that as my understanding and practically dragged me into the building. Then, he pulled me into the elevator and we went up to the third floor. Afterwards, we went down a long hallway with many rooms. Each one I passed had a familiar name on it: Ming-Ming, Mystel, Garland and Crusher.
But then, as we continued down the hallway, I noticed the rest of the doors had no name indicator on them. Were they all vacant or were they rooms for the BEGA kids that were training here?
Then, Brooklyn finally stopped at the last door of the hallway. On the door, in black lettering, read "Brooklyn." Black. Just like his wings and just like his heart.
After opening the door, Brooklyn nudged me inside. I complied, for fear of what he was capable of. His room seemed so….empty, taking me by surprise. I pictured a sort of goth/punk atmosphere but really, it was just…plain. It kinda creeped me out, actually.
"This is where you'll be staying. This is your new room and your new home." Brooklyn said. I turned to him and stomped my foot on the ground.
"No! This is not my home! I don't belong here! I belong with the G-Revolutions….with Kai!" I exclaimed. Brooklyn's eyes turned red and then, he back-handed me. My cheek stung and my eyes began to tear up. My hand went up to hold my injured cheek. I couldn't believe it…he actually hit me! I staggered back and stared at him with pure terror in my eyes. I then fell back onto the floor and began to cry. I was so scared, so terrified that I didn't know what else to do. A moment later, I felt a hand touch my shoulder but I pushed it away.
"Mikayla, please, I'm sorry." Brooklyn whispered. He had changed moods again but who knows when he'll change back? That's what I was afraid of. He hit me once, what is to say he won't do it again?
"Just go away." I whispered through my tears. There was a moment of silence but then, footsteps, the door opening and then closing. I curled into a ball on the floor and continued to cry. I was here with an abusive monster, all alone. I felt so terrified, so lost, so alone. I didn't know how long I was crying for but I started to feel exhausted. I just lay there, closed my eyes and before I fell asleep, one thought ran through my head:
Kai, please, come save me. Save me from this monster.
From Author- Drama, or what? Kai and Mikayla just get back together when suddenly, Brooklyn steals her away! And what's worse? He's abusive! That's not good.
