I hope you like this chapter! BYEEEE!
Erik picked Christine up like a baby, and cradled her in his arms. He carried her to his room where he set her down on the bed. He walked out and yelled to Meg, who was waiting in the boat.
"You can leave now Miss Giry." Meg obediently left, and Erik walked back to where Christine lay crying.
"Christine, angel, why ever are you crying?" Erik asked her. Christine sniffled and sighed.
"Oh Erik, I just missed you so much, I couldn't handle it. I do not love Raoul, and now I am to be wed." Erik held the crying girl in his arms, resting her head in his lap. He stroked her hair, and her love for him burst like a balloon.
"I need you Erik, I can't last another minute without you. I love you, I always have." Erik felt as if his heart stopped. She loved him?
"You-you, love me?" He stuttered. She nodded.
"Ever since you first spoke to me, I felt something, a feeling I could never define, until you brought me here, I realized, that it was love. Pure, feeling love." Christine sniffled. Erik smiled at his love.
"I must admit at first I thought I was going mad." Erik spoke softly. "I expected to never hear your voice again. You left with your boy, and left me to suffer. I almost died, if Madame Giry and Meg had not found me, I would be dead." He looked down to see her crying and sobbing.
"I'm sorry, so sorry. I caused you so much pain. I should have never left you, nor pulled your mask off. I thought I was being a hero, unmasking the opera ghost. But I nearly killed you, my one and only love." Christine was sobbing now, gasping for air. Erik held her closer.
"Christine, love, it will be okay. You are very tired and excited. You need sleep, come here." He once more cradled her in his arms. He carried her to his room, and set her down on his bed. She yawned and closed her eyes.
"Erik, sing for me please." She whispered. Erik took a breath and softly sang.
Night time sharpens
Heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes
Silently the senses
Abandon their defenses
Night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it
Tremulous and tender
Turn your face away
From the garish light of day.
Turn your thoughts away
From cold, unfeeling light,
And listen to the music of the night.
By that point Christine was nearly asleep, she smiled a faint smile and Erik continued to soothe her with his music.
Close your eyes
And surrender to your darkest dreams.
Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before.
Close your eyes,
Let your your spirit start to soar.
And you'll live as you've never lived before.
Music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it
Secretly possess you
Open up your mind
Let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness that you know you cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night
Christine was asleep. Her breathing slowed but kept at a steady pace. Erik walked away slowly. He sat down at his piano and watched Christine sleep. He softly played his organ and finished the song.
Let your mind
Start a journey through a strange new world
Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before
Let your soul take you where you long to be.
Only then can you belong to me
Touch me, trust me
Savor each sensation
Let the dream begin
Let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night
You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night
He looked back at Christine to see if she stirred. She was still sleeping peacefully. Erik smiled. He had won.
Hi! I just watched the 25 anniversary Phantom of the Opera. I loved it. Ramin is my favorite Phantom. I know that these chapters are short, they will get longer! Bye! xx
