This is it folks, the last chapter of my Elektra movie sequel. I hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! Look for my sequel to this fic entitled: Abby's Tale!
"I knew she wouldn't listen." Abby said.
"Why'd you let her go?" I asked her.
"Because, Adam, she's an adult." Abby said, as if I should have known. "She's fully capable of making her own decisions. I just hope that my future self was wrong."
"Matt went with her." I said, trying to comfort Abby. "He'll help her."
"But, what if he can't? What if Elektra ends up getting killed again?" Abby didn't have any tears in her eyes, but I could hear them in her voice.
"Come here." I pulled her into a gentle hug. I could hear her thoughts loudly.
"Adam's trying to help, but he doesn't know how much Elektra means to me. He doesn't know what we went through together."
"Abby, I'm sure Elektra will defeat that Bullseye guy and we'll laugh at this later. But, if not, I'm here for you." I was telling the truth, but Abby pulled away and looked at me questioningly.
"Adam, I don't even know you that well." She said. "I mean, I'd like to say I'm falling in love with you, that that is the butterflyish feeling I get whenever I'm around you, but I'm only thirteen. I don't know what love is."
"I do." I said in all seriousness.
"We're back." Matt announced, standing in the doorway. Abby and I glanced at him.
"Where's Elektra?" Abby asked, her voice icy with fear.
"She's asleep." Matt said, and Abby relaxed. "She had a rough night."
"Did she kill him?" I asked.
"Yes." Matt said, quietly. "It's done." I felt an overwhelming feeling of relief flow over me. I had been worried about a future where DareDevil was the enemy. I'd heard about Matt's skills while still with Magneto. He'd always talked about the DareDevil as a daring man without fear. And, after all, who wants to fight a man without fear?
"I should get going then." I said, moving to stand up. But, I was still weak from my fight with Elektra, and I tried to hide it as I sat back down.
"Relax, Adam." Abby said, smiling at me. "Everything's okay now. You don't need to rush off."
"But, I do." I argued, and I heard Abby's thoughts ask why, so I answered. "Because I need to find…I need to continue looking for the answers to my life."
"You mean before Magneto." Abby said, looking at me with pity.
"That's what I mean." I said, trying to shake her pity off. I didn't want it.
"So that's it?" Abby asked. "You just bring me here then leave me?"
"Abby, the life I lead is dangerous. I could never ask you to get tangled up in it."
"Adam, my father was just murdered. I have no one now besides Elektra, and she's with Matt. I'd feel totally like a third wheel if I stuck around here." Matt smiled at the comment and left us alone.
"Do you know what you're asking of me?" I said. "At every glance, every hint of red I'll become a beast that's untamable. Do you really want to deal with that?"
"What do you think?" She thought, taking my hand. I knew that she wanted me to hear that thought too by the way she looked into my eyes.
"Let me try it out at least." Abby told me. "If I can't handle it, I'll walk away." She smiled at me.
"Okay." I said, smiling back. I knew we were in for a crazy ride.
I silently sat there and listened to the sound of her breathing. It felt so great having Elektra back in my life. I only wished she hadn't come to me in such a fallen and broken state.
She was like a drug addict trying to recover from murdering. I didn't know how to help her. The only thing I could do was be there for her. It was hard, knowing what she was suffering.
I had killed before in the name of justice. I knew perfectly what it felt like to take another's life without giving it a second thought until much later when the memories seeped back in.
That was what made me worry so much about Elektra. I remember how she was when I first met her—beautiful, young, hopeful. But, the murder of her father as well as herself had changed her dramatically.
I was the man without fear, the DareDevil, and yet, I feared losing Elektra to her own personal demons.
"Matt?" She said my name quietly, and I couldn't help but smile. I felt her hand slide into mine.
"Thank you." She said, kissing me.
I felt her breath against my face as she pulled away. "I'm just glad you came back." I said. "I was so afraid of losing you." I voiced my fear.
"I know." Elektra told me, sounding sad. "You almost did too."
"Elektra, I'm going to help you through this." I reminded her. "You're not alone anymore."
"Thank you." She repeated, and I could hear the genuine gratitude in her voice.
I smiled again and thought about what the next few days held. They were going to be some of the hardest days of mine and Elektra's lives, but they would be bearable since we were together. And, I had no doubt that she would pull herself away from the darkness. She was, after all, the true warrior Elektra.The End
