Here's the second chapter.


Meanwhile at the bridge, Howlyn is sitting in his chair and thinking of Renee.

'What is she doing right now? is she out with another guy... no thats not possible I cant recall seeing her with another man', He wonders.

Whats her problem? why cant she just accept me?. I know she has feelings for me and she does too but she constantly tries to convince herself that its not true. Who's she trying to fool?. She's perfect in every sense and this has bred stubborness in her..but one day she will be mine, Im certain.

His mind wanders to their first encounter, she was entranced by him but she failed to admitt it. When he had held her, her back against his chest, her warm body with her heart pounding, He had known that she had feelings for him. After that she had come to the mothership again and again to try and destroy him but left in vain because deep inside her she couldnt do it, He knew.

While thinking he turns on the radio and a rock ballad called "Buried alive by Love" by "H.I.M" is being played

Again the burden of losing rests upon my shoulders
And its weight seems unbearable
Your tomb is where your heart is,
I should have told her
But within me hid a secret so terrible

Losing her was one of his greatest fears he couldnt even bare the thought

To cry is to know that you're alive
But my river of tears has run dry
I never wanted to fool you, no
But a cold heart is a dead heart
And it feels like I've been buried alive by love

He had never cried 'it was human emotion' but he had felt sadness and maybe he was cold hearted but in the matter of love never!

If I should die before I wake
Pray no one my soul to take
If I wake before I die,
Rescue me with your smile
Would she save me? whereas, she's the one who wants to kill me

The kiss of vanity blessed me with a spiritual murder
And fed the gods of war insatiable
Your home is where the dark is
I should have told her
Embrace the fire indestructible

She should have realised it by now that her place lied beside him.

To die is to know that you're alive
And my river of blood won't run dry
I never wanted to lose you, no
But a cold heart is a dead heart
And it feels like I've been buried alive by love

Emotionally he had died many times but kept on coming back and with her embedded in his mind he was being buried by her thoughts

And they say to cry is to know that you're alive
And my river of tears has run dry
I never wanted to fool you, no
But a cold heart is a dead heart
A deserted soul is gone
A cold heart is a dead heart
And it feels like I've been buried alive by love

He never wanted to be a deserted soul and his life was in her hands.

He came to conclusion that he should go out for a walk and clear his mind. He put on a pair of jeans and a hoody to cover his forehead (although who would notice him on night like this when everyone had somewhere to go). He walked to the portal and entered the location.


Renee' was in her apartment, still unsure wether to go to Street's party or not. She hated Valentine's day because her relationship's had never been successful, either her love ended up dead or left her. and she was always left hurt and tormented.

Liam was the best from all of the guys she had ever been with. He was sweet, considerate and sincere. Ever since his death she had blamed her self for letting him die..

'I couldve stopped him. It should have been me who died...Im not strong enough to handle the burden of stopping the Atavus on my own. Its just too much for me. Ive lost almost everyone I ever loved and now Street is in danger aswell. Why does everyone think I can handle this?. Im not a cold-hearted bitch! but I have to adjust with the times!. I dont want to kill so many people its not my fault its those Atavuses!! Cant they just leave?' she thinks painfully.

She begins to recall those times when she had been with Liam. He had saved her life numerous times but she couldnt even save him!!. While thinking of him, her mind wandered to the thought of Howlyn. She had encoutered him several times but he always managed to get away maybe its because she couldnt kill him and he knew it.

'Of course he knows it! I keep on falling in his trap all the time. There was something about him that kept me from killing him..but why?. I hate him! He was a threat who shouldve been eliminated a long time ago. I cant admitt Ive got feelings for him but thats what one says when they do have feelings for someone!!! I dont want to feel this way! why cant he leave me alone?! Why does he feel this way for me?' she thinks furiously.

On the other hand she felt as if he was the only one who did understand her true nature and what she felt but this could never be she couldnt let him take over her planet. Her CD player was on and it was playing a compilation of songs that she wasnt paying attention to until now when the song "Addicted" by "Kelly Clarkson" began. She had heard the song before and now she began to get lost in the lyrics of the song

It's like you're a drug
It's like you're a demon I can't face down
It's like I'm stuck
It's like I'm running from you all the time

It was so true. Im always running from him, trying to hide what I feel all the time

And I know I let you have all the power
It's like the only company I seek is misery all around
It's like you're a leech
Sucking the life from me
It's like I can't breathe
Without you inside of me
And I know I let you have all the power
And I realize I'm never gonna quit you over time
I was always miserable and He did obviously had power over me or else I wouldnt feel this way.

It's like I can't breathe
It's like I can't see anything
Nothing but you
I'm addicted to you
It's like I can't think
Without you interrupting me
In my thoughts
In my dreams
You've taken over me
It's like I'm not me

His thoughts have clouded my mind and there was nothing else I can think of and I cant recognize myself anymore.

It's like I'm lost
It's like I'm giving up slowly
It's like you're a ghost that's haunting me
Leave me alone
And I know these voices in my head
Are mine alone
And I know I'll never change my ways
If I don't give you up now
He was haunting me all the time. My dreams and my life was his and I cant let that happen!

I'm hooked on you
I need a fix
I can't take it
Just one more hit
I promise I can deal with it
I'll handle it, quit it
Just one more time
Then that's it
Just a little bit more to get me through this
He is like a drug and there's no rehab. I keep on saying that I'll get rid of him but I cant.

She noticed that tears had begun to run down her cheeks she allowed herself to cry to pour the pain out. After she had cried she felt a little bit better and decieded to go out for some coffee. She put on her jacket and walked out of her apartment.


Howlyn is just passing the coffee shop when he sees Renee.

"There's no one with her", he whispers and the thought of her being alone brings a smile to his face. Maybe I can talk to her rightnow and see how she's doing.

Renee walks into the coffee shop and sees Micheal. She had forgotten all about him!. He walks upto her.

"Happy Valentine's Day, ma'am", he teases with a soft smile as he hands her a bouquet of roses.

"Thanks, same to you. Just to let you know, Im not a valentine's day follower", she replys with a smile.

"Well. Im just about to make you a believer..that is if you would allow me",

"Knock yourself out"

"I should be saying the same for you"


She was about to ask how but his lips were on hers. She allowed herself to be lost in him and she closed her eyes as the embraced each other. His lips devouring her and vice versa.

Howlyn is seeing the whole scene from the Shop's window. HIs heart going through mixed emotions of hatred for the man she is with and sadness and utter despair that he is losing Renee. He watched as they kissed deeply.

'I shouldve been the one she kissed...' he groaned.

Once again she had driven a knife through his heart. 'Why could someone so beautiful be so cruel?. If she had talked to me and accepted me I would have stopped the conquering Earth deal, I guess I'll just have to finish where I left off'.

It is then he noticed that it had been raining and he is soaking wet.

Inside the coffee shop Renee noticed a figure standing outside the window. 'It's Howlyn!' she realized and her heart jumped!, But he had ran away before she even said anything and it is pouring outside. She turns her attention to Micheal.

"Your place or mine?", he asks softly.

"Where ever you want to take me", she smiles at him and holds his hand.


Well I hope you guys liked it.
