Chapter 37 - Master of Fate

"William!" Meredith called to the night sky as he disappearred. That was when she realised what she was doing. She looked around. William stood on the ground opposite her and smiled.

"Why you shouting my name Blondie, I've been here the whole time." Meredith gaped and ran to him. This had to be a dream. One minute they were in her secluded clearing, and the next, the beautiful cottage by the lake.

"William..." She said and hugged him. William eyed her oddly.

"Mere, are you okay?" He asked her and patted her on the back of the head. She released him.

"Yeah, I'm just making sure it was you that's all." She said. She looked up. Birght lights scattered across the sky and seemed to fly off.

"Mere, are you sure you're okay." Meredith seemed silent. She remembered everything that had happened to her over the past months that soon had disappearred to nothing. SHe looked around. Yes, she was back.

"Um, well I'm going back up, ya coming?"

"I will in a minute I um gotta do some thinking." William nodded and walked back up to the house. Meredith slumped onto the log. They had given her back her lost time.

"Just can't believe it never happened can you?" She whipped around. Jason stood there, his eyes bearing the moonlight.

"WHo did this?"

"Whay ask a question like that. Some thing happen for a reason. This happned so you and William could have some more time together."

"Will they still come?" She looked up.

"You can't stop them from coming, but you can stop them from killing."

"And in doing so destroy myself?"

"It is destiny Meredith. It is fate. It was what was planned for you the moment you were born."

"That's where your wrong Jason." She said, and stood up, dusting herself off. She didn't give Jason a chance to respond. "I may have been created Jason but I have life, and that life came from somewhere, which means that I'm not destined to die although you had me believing so. I'm destined to be whoever I want to be." She looked once more at Jason. "And no one, neither God, nor human, nor alien nor some Government agency who created me is telling me what to do. I got this chance for a reason. And I think thatit was so William and I could have a chance at what we always wanted."

"Are you willing to take that chance?"

"Life's about taking chances Jason. And with all my experience at that it took me a while to realise that I can choose my destiny. And maybe this second chance is the time to prove it."

Meredith walked away from Jason. He smiled a little.

"You finally learned something Meredith. But you also will realise you're still not human."

As she walked away, she closed her eyes tightly.

And two tears of blood rolled down her cheeks....
