Heeeeeey everybody! This is my alternate ending to Jekyll and Hyde, where Lucy saves the day. Enjoy!


A Revenge

Dr. Jekyll was planing to send the beautiful lady of the night, who was his dear friend, enough money to leave England for good. He had done this because the monster who was his other half would murder her, like he did to the others. Writing his goodbye letter to Lucy, tears of despair and frustration ran down his cheeks and down his chin. Because of the monster he had created within himself, he would lose a dear friend, no matter where she came from.

He remembered his memories when he was Mr. Hyde with Lucy. He felt terrible healing her wounds when he himself was the one who caused them. He remembered then what he kept in his laboratory, and ran to retrieve it. He took the item and wrapped it in a soft cloth to give to her, just in case she may need it. He found a bigger envelope and placed the letter, the money, and the item inside of it. Putting on his coat and hat he started to head towards the Red Rat.

The girl laid on her bed in her satin red nightgown, confused and broken. Even though this madman who's name she did not yet know said that he cared for her, she had never felt this low of self-esteem. He had beat her before, given scars that will never heal on both her skin and heart.

Look at me,
And tell me who I am.
Why I am
What I am.

Call me a fool,
And it's true I am.
I don't know
Who I am.

It's such a shame,
I'm such a sham.
No one knows
Who I am.

Am I the face of the future?
Am I the face of the past?
Am I the one who must finish last?

Look at me,
And tell me who I am,
Why I am
What I am.

Will I survive?
Who will give a damn,
If no one knows
Who I am?

Nobody knows -
Not even you -
No one knows who I am...

Sorrowful sobs claimed the girls voice, and she wept bitterly.

"Excuse me, Miss Lucy?" Came a voice at the door. Lucy looked up quickly and dabbed her eyes with a tattered handkerchief. "Y-yes? Come in, if you please?" She asked in a small voice, still shaking from the crying fit.

"A man just dropped off this letter for you, somebody by the name of Henry Jekyll?" Said the worker from the Red Rat. He held an oddly large letter in his outstretched hands.

At the mention of his name Lucy's heart lept for joy. She trully fancied this man more then any other, and felt an odd love for his quiet and polite manner. She slid off the bed and walked over to him. She quickly grabbed the letter from the man's hand. It was very heavy. She turned around and ran towards the desk, but suddenly stopped in her tracks. She remembered her behaviours and turned back to the man. She nodded and smiled politely. "T-thank you very much....sir..."

He grinned and walked out of the room, closing the door. She walked over to the desk and opened the envelope. With a clank, the item fell on the desk. She ignored it for the moment and opened the letter.

Dearest Lucy,

I fear for your safety, for the man behind the recent murders in this town is none other then the evil man who has been taking advantage of you. Because of these events, I have enclosed some money for you to run to a safe place. Leave town as soon as possible, and don't tell anyone where you are going. I hope to see you again someday, but it is very doubtful. Take care, and now you will get the opportunity you never had.

Best wishes,

Dr. Henry Jekyll

PS: The item enclosed in this message is for an absolute emergency.

Lucy reached inside the envelope, and the letter was true. It contained over a hundred pounds. Lucy's mouth was agape. She then picked up the item, and unwrapped it. It sparkled in the light, but it was a deadly thing.

The woman sat wondering. "Dr. Jekyll must really care for me.... doing all this for a gal like me. And he's right, I can get the chance to start over..."

She ran over to the drawers and took out all her clothes. She took out the dusty suitcase from beneath the small bed and layed it on top. She organized her clothes and put them all in the suitcase. She gathered every other item she possessed, which was not much, and put it in a bag. She stuffed the pounds into a secret pocket of her dress, and calmly placed the item in her bag. She glanced around the room, ad was astonished at how fast things were happening. She sat back down on the bed for a moment, and thought of the new beginning she could now have for herself.

A New Life -
What I wouldn't give
To have a new life!
One thing I have learned
As I go through life:
Nothing is for free
Along the way!

A new start -
That's the thing I need,
To give me new heart -
Half a chance in life
To find a new part,
Just a simple role
That I can play.

A new hope -
Something to convince me
To renew hope!
A new day,
Bright enough
To help me find my way!

A new chance -
One that maybe has
A touch of romance.
Where can it be,
The chance for me?

A new dream -
I have one I know
That very few dream!
I would like to see
That overdue dream -
Even though
It never may come true!
A new love -
Though I know there's no
Such thing as true love -
Even so,
Although I never knew love,
Still I feel that
One dream is my due!

A new world -
This one thing I want
To ask of you, world -
Once! - Before it's time
To say adieu, world!
One sweet chance to
Prove the cynics wrong!

A new life -
More and more, I'm sure,
As I go through life,
Just to play the game -,
And to pursue life -
Just to share its pleasures,
And belong! -
That's what I've been here for,
All along!
Each day's
A brand new life!

Feeling very content, Lucy grabbed her bags and headed for the door. As soon as she was about to turn the handle, it turned on it's own. The door creaked open, and she found herself staring into the one face she hoped she would never see again. With his drabber coat and mussed up hair, she didn't even have to look at his face to know who he was. It was HIM. And he had returned for her. Returned to seal her doom.

"Say, you hooker. You look like you're in quite a damn hurry. Where do you think you're going?" He said in his oily wanton voice.

To be Continued...
