KK, so here are the messed up pairings:
3/60 5/35 2/362 1/23 86/11.0 10/Ace
He held me close. Like I was precious to him. He ran his fingers in my raven black hair. I looked back at him. His eyes were cold and hard, and bloodshot like he had been crying for ages.
"Wally?" I asked. "Are you alright?"
His eyes stared at me. He bit his lip as a tear ran down his cheek. He swalloed what I guess was a lump in his throat. He finally spoke, but his voice was full of doubt and sadness.
"I'm fine Kuki." He said, obviously lying.
I decided to drop the subject.
Let me get you caught up. See, the evil adults and teenagers have finally declared war on the kids. Forcing us into hiding. Now, the opertives and their families were living in some old forest. We had been living here for a month now, secretly having attacks against them. A few hours ago, we had met with the teenager leader. And they had agreed to help us take down the adults, if they get to have a small bit of revenge on us. Still don't know what that means. Nigel had come up with a plan, and gave us all our jobs.
Oh, and by the way, Wally and I are finally together.
Suddenly, he stood up. He stared at the watch on his wrist, and started to walk away.
"Wally!" I yelled, chasing after him. When I caught up, I grabbed his arm and spun him around. "Where are going? What are you doing?"
Another tear fell down his face. "I'm... I have to go Kuki."
"Where are you going? It's almost time for the final battle!"
He snatched his arm away from me. "I'm going for a walk. Tell Nigel that I'm going."
"Why would Nigel care? Your coming back right? Your not just gonna leave us are you?"
He stopped. As if what I said really hit him. He turned to me, and got closer. Until his lips pressed against mine.
The kiss only lasted a few seconds. He stopped, and looked at me hard. "I'll never leave you Kooks."
"Then stay here." I said softly.
"I'm sorry Kuki. But you'll know one day why I can't. And trust me, there's nothing I'd rather be doing then being with you. But I have to go. I have to."
"What do you mean? What on earth are you even saying?"
He started to run away. "I'm saying that the war's finally gonna end!"
That was nearly seven years ago. Now, I was right next to his grave.
Apparently, Nigel had sent him on the deadliest mission ever. A mission that Wally had no hope of coming back from. Nigel suspected that the teenagers would betray us and fire at us. So Wally had to go in, and stop them. All by himself. With maybe a few hundred teenagers trying to... now he was... I can't even say it.
I sniffed. You know, the first time we kissed was when we had went into hiding. We had just escaped death. The last time I kissed him, death came and stole him back.
"Come on Kuki, he wouldn't of wanted you to mourn over him this long."
I looked up and stared at him. Patton. My boyfriend. I kept crying. I couldn't help it. I felt guilty. I had loved Wally. And as soon as he stopped living, I started to love another man.
Suddenly, I heard someone screaming. I spun around and saw Wallabee's mother, Katherine. She was screaming and yelling at Nigel.
"How could you dare show your face here? How could you mourn a life that you ended?" She caught my eye. "And your no better! He loved you! And now just forgot about him and now with another man! Your whole sector! Sector V! Your murderers! That was my son!" She fell to the ground. "My baby..."
Not wanting to see this, I looked into the sky. An eagle was circling the graveyard. Everyone had come here because it the anniversary of his death.
I gasped and almost fell out of my seat. It just shocked me so much. In the mix of the eagles feathers, was a small spot of orange feathers.
And I'm pretty sure that's not natural.
