We fell asleep that night with a new hope. A hope in which Circle Daybreak would be whole again. Something I came up with after reading a short story on L.J Smiths website. Written by the author herself . Go to her website and go to stories and then find Thicker Than Water. You don't have to read that to understand this story. But I recommend it.Rated: Fiction T - English - Family/Hurt/Comfort - R.

One Day (A Night World One Shot)
Most of us were dead. Humans and Night Worlders alike. Dragons run the world now. The few of us who are alive live underground. About three hundred or so humans remain, from the 6.9 billion that used to live on earth. And well about the same amount of Night Worlders remain as well. Those lucky enough, didn't find their soulmates. Yeah, you would think that was a good thing, not really. If you had found yours, you were in Circle Daybreak. And well you were one of the main fighters. And chances are you might of died or lost your soulmate.
Rashel and Quinn, gone.
James and Poppy, alive.
Ash and Mary-Lynnette, alive.
Jez and Morgead, gone.
Thierry and Hannah, alive.
Delos and Maggie, alive.
Gillian and David, gone.
Sarah, Mal and Kierlan, gone.
Mark and Jade, Alive.
Rowan and Kestrel, alive.
Phil and Blaise, gone.
Thea and Eric, gone.
Illiana and family, gone.
Jez's gang, alive.
And Galen and I, alive.
There are others. Ones who I don't really care about. The humans, they know who we are. They live with us because we could easily wipe them out. Plus we keep them safe. They in return let us feed on them. If you were to look at this underground world from above, it would almost seam like the real world. It was big and well like the real world. But the sunlight was all fake. I have no idea how Thierry did it. But well if you were born into this world, you could of been fooled.
"Keller, your doing it again." Galen spoke, breaking me from my thoughts.
"Huh?" I asked.
"Your spacing out again." He answered, wrapping his arms around me.
"Sorry, I was just thinking." I said and nestled deeper in his arms.
"It's okay, how are you holding up?" He asked.
I sighed, how was I holding up? I lost my sister who I only knew was my sister for a few months. And most of my close friends. The world practically ended. I guess you could say I felt hopeless. I debated on telling him this. Instead I opened up my thoughts to him. Knowing it would explain things better than I could with words.
"I understand, I lost my whole family." He whispered.
"I know, well at least you don't have anymore prince duties." I tried at a joke.
"Yeah." He replied, giving me a weak smile.
"I love you." I told him, something I never could say enough.
"I love you too, Keller." My soulmate replied.
I stood up, feeling the need to remember. I walked to the small nightstand on the left side of the bed. My side of the bed. I picked up a picture frame. It held a picture of us all before the apocalypse. Everyone, right after Sarah, Mal and Kierlan joined Circle Daybreak. We were all smiling, at a time we thought we won. Galen had one arm around my waist, as I had one around his. My other arm was slung around Rashel's shoulder. She mirrored me. One arm around her soulmate, and one around me.
I smiled a sad smile. The time like the one in the picture kept me going. Even if the ones where I watched my own flesh and blood die in front of me haunted me. The happier ones kept me alive. That and Galen. If I didn't have him, I probably would have lost my will to live a long while ago. I shake my head to clear my thoughts. I set the picture down. I go and lay in my soulmates arms again.
Before I lay down, I take the two slips of old blue papers from my pocket. I read them over, the only proof that she was my twin. The only proof I needed. I blink back the tears, she was gone now. Where ever she was now I hoped she and the rest of them are happy. And I smile, a big smile, because one day I'll join them. It may be soon, or it may be years from now. But I will see them again. And one day we'll be a family again. We'll be Circle Daybreak again. And that alone made this world that much less horrible. Galen smiles down at me. For he heard all of this, as my thoughts were still open to him.
"One day." He whispered.
We fell asleep that night with a new hope. A hope in which Circle Daybreak would be whole again. Where it would be like the days we thought we won. All smiles and laughs. Where we had few worries. And the ones we had, were silly things like what to wear the next day. Or what prank we would pull next. A hope that in which we knew we would see our friends, our family again.
And that we did.
So, what do you think? This is one of the most emotional things I've written. If you have any comment son how I could do better, I'm all ears. And review and tell me what you like that I did as well. It helps me as a writer and I'd love the feedback. Thanks for reading! - BeautifulGoodbyeOneShotAccou nt
