P.O.V Person: "Talking"
Summary:In a past life Joey was in love with Seto. When death was about to claim him Joey made a deal so they can have a second chance at happiness but what prices did he have to pay? And what curse did he place upon himself?
Prologue: Death Is Only The Beginning
Sometime In The Distant Past…
"Seto I don't think we should do this" please don't, was I could think over and over. Please d…he turns around and then he does it. The stare, he thinks it's his witty way of turning things around, making the bad seem good, appealing to my sense of adventure…as he calls it, that's how he gets me to agree with his plans. If he knew it was just a stare, the look of want in his eyes…he'd never talk to me again. '…And that's why we should explore the Black Forest' he finishes with that smug look on his face that I love so much. Coming out of my trance I reply with a simple "sure" and we continue down the path.
Today is my 18th birthday and for my gift my best friend and secret love Seto thought one last adventure before I was tied down would be best. I loved the idea not only because I got to spend time with him but also because it delays my choice. In our village it's customary that at the age of 18 a male must choose a bride…I've been running from this moment ever since I met Seto 5 years ago.
We'd ventured far into the forest; the grass was up past my knees, the trees were so tall it would take a day to climb one, and they've become so thick that there canopy blocks the sun so the forest is plunged into eternal darkness, it's a mystery how small shrubs and grass still grow here. Our village speaks of a legendary witch that resides here that has great power but its told she only uses it for pain and personal pleasure which to her are one and the same apparently.
'Joey what's the hold up?' He said to me just before the look of shock spread across his face. I never got to tell him my answer before I had a chance to speak he was gone. My feet were moving before I told them to and I see him again only this time there's something different he still stares at me but instead of making me melt it makes me go numb, frozen in place he bore the look of…death.
When I climb down to his…dead body I pick him up into my arms, at that moment I never felt more useless. 'Ahh…I see this person means a great deal to you…more then he should' the eerie voice shock me to my core, but I was too far gone to care so I only nodded not caring who this observant stranger was. Laying my love down softly on the ground I look up so I can speak with this person face to face. My eyes widen in horror. The woman before me had bright purple hair with a dead leaf hanging from it, and long black robe, and bright green piercing eyes.
"Oh great Witch of the Black Forest is there anything you can do to save my love? My life, the world, nothing matters without him" I put every drop of sorrow I could muster into my plea.
'SILANCE! Insolent Mortal, Beg, Plead, grovel, all you wish useless words mean nothing to me. I only believe what I see!' "Huh?" Rising my head I see a coal black eye with a dark purple pupil appear on her head.
'I see Joseph Wheeler…I see your fears, your pain, your wants, and needs. But this love, the desperation you feel for this individual…this Seto is quite extraordinary.' I awaken from the trance she had me under and pick up my love once more. I just kept repeating "I won't ever leave you" I thought it was impossible for me to feel worse until she spoke again. 'I will not revive this Seto!' I just stared at her my rage started to build the words left my mouth before I could stop them "But I though you said what I feel for him was extraordinary? I mean you're a witch aren't you? How can you call yourself an all-powerful witch if you can't even bring back the dead?" I focused all of my hate at her at that moment but when our eyes met she mad me feel so small.
'SILANCE!' her voice was strong laced with the power she possessed. Words! She claimed they mean nothing to her that's what she said but how is she unaffected by them? The power of those 6 words changed me so much. I felt as though my body, my mind, nothing that was me belonged in this world…I belong with him.
'Silly Mortal! I will not save him, I can, but I won't'. All I could bring myself to do was hold him closer, clutching him…begging him to give me the strength he once had. "Why?" I asked fearing her reaponse. 'It is too boring, however there is a spell that I can do to help but you will have to sacrifice your life to me' I answered before she finished speaking "If it'll save him I'll do anything". Looking into her eyes again she didn't seem surprised at my speed of answer I only detected joy.
'This spell will give your love another chance. With this spell you shall both be reborn, all of your memories gone, yet your souls will be connected, a commensalism (1) relationship if you will. Seto will live a life of luxury and in this new time you two can be together. However you will be put through more pain then you can imagine and Seto will have more suitors after his love then you. Do you wish the risk of him falling for another?" By her questions I could tell she had no idea what love was like, I felt very sorry for her. "As long as he's alive and happy if it's not me he wants then I'll just have to deal". She seemed pleased, 'VERY WELL! I need your blood and his'. The liquid she placed our blood in began to turn white as she chanted.
'NOW JOSEPH WHEELER HEEDS MY WARNING! YOU WILL LIVE THIS LIFE FREELY FOR 18 YEARS, BUT WHEN YOU STRIKE THE AGE OF 18 THE CLOCK WILL TICK AGAINST YOU, YOU WILL HAVE UNTIL THE LAST LIGHT FALLS FROM THE SKY FOR HIM TO EARN YOUR LOVE AND TRUST AND FOR YOU TO GIVE IT AWAY FREELY BY WORD OF MOUTH OR IT IS YOUR LIFE THAT WILL BE LOST! …And Joey one final thing a two days before said day if you don't have skin to skin contact with him every half hour you will get sicker and weaker until you die.
"WHAT! But with my memories gone how will I know all of this?" she thought for a moment and finally said 'you will help you guide your reincarnation and Seto will guide his…I will help you two learn to manipulate their dreams'. "Why are you helping me? I thought you only used your powers for pain and personal gain?" This was the first time I saw shock spread across her face she seemed to think for a while before carefully saying 'I have a soft spot for the gays because them being together is natural thing yet it bothers most people, thus causing them to be uncomfortable…which is painful'. I just looked at her and she cracked 'Fine! I have a thing for gay boys okay!' I smiled at her confession and the thought our my new life with Seto when it hit me "Wait Seto won't guide his reincarnation-thing to be with mine he doesn't feel that way about me does he?" She began to cackle and with that she shoved a dagger into my already broken heart.
Present Day A Week Before The Dead Line
The brightness of the sun woke me from the strangest dream. I was running from him then I was safe in the arms of another. Opening my eyes I found myself in a puddle of my own blood, my fresh wounds from last night had finally stopped bleeding. With the help of the bedroom door I managed to get up and make it to the bathroom. I started at myself in the mirror; my usually dull blond hair had dried blood and whatever contents had been on the floor in it, looking down at my body I see his handy work,my once tanned skin was now pale and covered in bruises and scares in a verity of colors intertwined with my new cuts.
After a shower I got out the kit. Through months of saving and usage of computers at the library I was able to buy and learn to conceal his masterpiecefrom the rest of the world. I got dressed found my bag and started to run…I was late again.
My alarm woke me, the boy I had in my arms was now gone. It took me about a minute to realize it was all a dream yet I never missed something more. I got up and got ready for the day. The dark circles were clearly visible under my eyes from my late work nights but other than that I looked quite hot. After getting ready I check my email, the usually fifty or so love letters, junk mail and work. After deleting the crap I left for school.
1)A relationship of this kind is when one organism gains benefits from another without harming the individual
