London, Ontario, Canada- April 19, 2008
"Derekous lived, Casey. He was real, but he didn't really defeat the sea monster."
"Derek, what are you talking about? You like spaced out for a really long time. What happened?"
"I saw the past. It was like you said his name, and then my mind went back in time. I saw bits and pieces of what happened. I saw and felt how he fell in love. I saw the creature though his eyes. Casey, it was incredible. The girl he fell in love with and her sister were his stepsiblings but he didn't know it until he went to meet her mom. He's dad had left his mom after his younger brother, Edious, had gone off to training. And he had a little sister named Martia. His dad's name was Gero, and he remarried a woman by the name of Noria. She had two daughters, and he fell in love with the oldest. Her name was Casea, and her littler sister's name was Elia."
"Derek, did you smoke something before we came here? I would hope so, because that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. There is no way you spacing out for ten minutes gave you this far-fetched flashback."
"Oh, really, Casey? His best friend's name was Samothrace. Can you explain how all the people we know would have just popped up in my mind the way they did?"
"That's not true. Lizzie has nothing to do with the Elia of your flashback."
"Her real name is Elizabeth, is it not?"
"It is. What's your point?"
"Elizabeth and Elia, Edious and Edwin, Martia and Marti, Abigailia and Abby, Samothrace and Sam, Noria and Nora, Gero and George, You and Casea, Derekous and I. Casey they all add up. The only major difference is that my mom left my dad, not the other way around."
"Derek, shut up. I want go home. I don't want to think about your not-flashback. Okay?"
"Fine, Casea. Let's go fine our parents."
"Ugh! Derek! I have nothing to do with her," she yelled at him as she started walking toward the exit.
He grabbed her wrist and turned her toward him. "Casey, Casea told Derekous that she would never forgive him if he died when leaving her to fight that creature. He died when she died. He carried her back to Athens and didn't bury her. He simply lay next to her and never woke again. I don't want that. I think that this happened for a reason. I think that we are them. It's the only thing that makes sense. They were in love, but never did anything but spend time with each other."
"Derek, you need to have you head examined," Casey told him.
"No I don't. I know what I saw," he said softly to her. Not even bothering to tell her what he was doing he kissed her softly on the lips. After pulling away he let go of her wrist and went to walk away. She pulled him back.
"Oh no you don't," she said as she pulled him back in for another kiss. He smiled, put his arms around her waist, picked her up, and swung her around. Their souls where finally happy.
In the project for my teacher I left it at Casey going to leave Derek. I thought this was a better ending. Tell me what you think. I have so much fun writing this in the first place. My teacher loved it. Mine was the longest myth. We had to have it double spaced, so it was 34 pages. Great right? I wrote a book, according to a lot of people.
I thank those who reviewed. It made me post my chapters that much quicker. And I also thank my godfather for helping me with Sam's Greek name.
