Chapter 18: Tears In Heaven

Without warning Cyrus grabbed Kennedy by the hair and threw her hard up against the wall. She was slightly dazed from the impact so this gave Cyrus time to grip her neck and start choking her. Kennedy's eyes widened with realization, he was trying to kill her.

Wes and Melissa were frantically trying to get Cyrus away from Kennedy,but, he pushed them aside like they were nothing. Kennedy's face was beginning to turn blue, they were afraid he was going to kill her.

All of a sudden Cyrus was roughly turned around, making him let go of Kennedy. Cyrus looked up into the eyes of a very angry Royce. Behind Royce was Dana and Susan, who looked as equally pissed off as him. Since Cyrus is human there was no way of hurting Royce so there was no way of getting out of the ghost's grasp.

Royce began dragging Cyrus towards the ocularis, Cyrus tried everything he could to prevent what was happening,but, Dana and Susan started pushing him from behind. He didn't have a chance since the ghosts were much stronger than he was. The ghosts lifted him into the air and threw him into the eye, he was killed instantly.

All of a sudden nuts and bolts came flying from the ocularis, it was breaking apart. They all needed to run for cover and quick. Wes, Melissa and Kennedy hid behind the couch, the ghosts just kinda stood there since they couldn't be harmed and in the basement Marc hid under the table. After a minute the ocularis finally broke apart and flew through out the house at a good pace, breaking all the walls and windows in the house. They were free at last.

After a minute Kennedy, Wes and Melissa finally got out from behind the couch and were met with Marc walking into the room. Kennedy looked in the hallway and saw a light coming down from the sky, she assumed it was coming from heaven. Suddenly Royce appeared in the doorway and to her surprise he didn't have any scars anymore. He looked the way he did when he was alive. She looked at his face and he was smiling sadly. She knew right away what this meant, that he was leaving her. Heaven had opened up to take Royce, Susan and Dana home. She assumed it was for what they had done today.

Kennedy quickly walked up to Royce and put her arms around him. "I don't want to let you go." She said with tears in her eyes.

"I know,but, I don't have to go. I can stay with you."

"No Royce you have to go, I don't want you to miss your chance at being in heaven."

"Staying with you will be just like being in heaven."

"I love you Royce,but, I think it would be best if you went."

"I love you too,but, I don't want to leave you."

"This is your chance Royce, don't miss it. Don't worry we'll see each other again."

"I'll wait for you." Royce said as a tear slid down his cheek.

Dana and Susan quickly said their good-byes to everyone and Dana even gave Marc a kiss on the cheek before she left. Marc couldn't help,but, smile to himself.

Royce and Kennedy kissed softly and when they pulled back Kennedy had tears streaming down her face, she couldn't stop them. Royce kissed her softly and whispered in her ear, "Whenever it rains just look to the sky and you'll know I'm thinking of you." He then faded away and the light from the heavens was gone.

Kennedy smiled through her tears cause she knew that she see him again someday. Melissa gently pulled Kennedy out of the house and into their car. They slowly drove away from the house their lives forever changed, especially Kennedy's. Royce taught her to love, not just someone else,but, herself. She would miss Royce,but, she was happy that he had finally found peace. She would remember him for the rest of her life.
