So I'm sorry but this is the last chapter it is one of the longest ones and I can always write more, like dinner with the king, Christmas, birthdays, or stories about when there kids grow up, send me your thoughts
If you get the chance, and if you like alice in wonderland, I have a new story up called a champions choice .
After a few months of preparing it was opening night (This is just the ending of the play, I didn't want to write the whole thing)
"Down once more to the dungeon of my black despair! Down we plunge to the prison of my mind! Down that path into darkness deep as hell! Why, you ask, was I bound and chained in this cold and dismal place? Not for any mortal sin, but the wickedness of my abhorrent face!" Erik shouted/ sang at Christine.
Which hurt him dearly, he hated yelling at Christine.
"Track down this murderer! He must be found!" The background singers sang. "Hounded out by everyone! Met with hatred everywhere! No kind word from anyone! No compassion anywhere!" He bellows out in song. "Christine... Why, why...?" He said shaking her a bit. "Your hand at the level of your eyes!" The actor for Antoinette sang. "..at the level of your eyes..." Raoul's counter part sang. "Your hand at the level of your eyes!" The chorus sang. "Track down this murderer - He must be found! Hunt out this animal, who runs to ground! Too long he's preyed on us - but now we know: the Phantom of the Opera is there, deep down below..." They finish. "He's here: the Phantom of the Opera..." A Meg actor sang. "Have you gorged yourself at last, in your lust for blood?" Christine asked. "Am I now to be prey to your lust for flesh?" She sang questioning him once again walking out of the changing room in a wedding dress. "That fate, which condemns me... to wallow in blood has also denied me the joys of the flesh... this face - the infection which poisons our love..." He broke off sadly. "This face, which earned a mother's fear and loathing... A mask, my first unfeeling scrap of clothing..." He again broke off sadly. "Pity comes too late - turn around and face your fate: An eternity of this before your eyes!" Erik yells/ sings to Christine. "This haunted face holds no horror for me now... It's in your soul that the true distortion lies..." She sang to make him feel happier. "Wait! I think, my dear, we have a guest!" He said excited. "Sir, this is indeed an unparalleled delight!" "RAOUL!" Christine shrieked.
To hear Christine call for that dead man, utterly made Erik sick to his stomach.
"I had rather hoped that you would come. And now my wish comes true - you have truly made my night!" Erik sang with an evil grin on his face. "Free her! Do what you like, only free her! Have you no pity?" Raoul's actor asked. "Your lover makes a passionate plea!" He laughs. "Please, Raoul, it's useless..." Christine tried to wager but didn't go through. "I love her! Does that mean nothing? I love her! Show some compassion..." "The world showed no compassion to me!" Erik just plainly yells. "Christine... Christine... Let me see her..." He pleaded. "Be my guest, sir..." Erik said opening the water gate. "Monsieur, I bid you welcome! Did you think that I would harm her? Why would I make her pay for the sins which are yours?" Erik said tying a fake lasso around the actors neck. "Order your fine horses now! Raise up your hand to the level of your eyes! Nothing can save you now- except perhaps Christine... Starts a new life with me - Buy his freedom with your love! Refuse me, and you send your lover to his death! This is your choice - This is the point of no return!" Erik said painfully remembering the past. "The tears I might have shed for your dark fate grow cold, and turn to tears of hate..." Christine sang with a ring to it that was almost scary coming from her. "Christine, forgive me, please forgive me... I did it all for you, and all for nothing..." Raoul begged.
"Farewell, my fallen idol and false friend... One by one I've watched illusions shattered..." She could hardly sing.
"Too late for turning back, too late for prayers and useless pity..."
"Say you love him, and my life is over!" "Past all hope of cries for help: no point in fighting" Erik said wanting to just maul Christine with kisses. "Either way you choose, he has to win..." Raoul sang, with fear in his voice. "For either way you choose, you cannot win! So, do you end your days with me, or do you send him to his grave?" Erik asked tightening the lasso. "Why make her lie to you, to save me?" Raoul sang with a struggle. "Angel of Music..."
He loved it when she called him Angel, so he couldn't help but smile a bit, not that the audience cared.
"Past the point of no return -" Erik sang quietly as Christine sang again the same line. "For pity's sake, Christine, say no!" "...why this torment?" She question him. "...the final threshold..." Erik sang not listening to Christine. "Don't throw your life away to save me..." Raoul's actor sang. "When will you see reason...?" She questioned him again. "His life is now the prize which you must earn!" Erik said smiling. "I fought so hard to free you..." Raoul said with his head held low. "Angel of Music..." Again with the Angel, Erik could hardly keep focused because of her. "You've passed the point of no return..." Erik could barely get those words out. "..You deceived me - I gave my mind blindly..." Christine said crying at this point. "You try my patience - make your choice!" Erik said pulling on the rope more. "Pitiful creature of darkness... What kind of life have you known...?" She asked. "God, give me courage to show you you are not alone..." She told him.
Christine sang her last note to Erik and leaned up to kiss him goodbye.
"I love you Angel" Christine said out of character.
"Track down this murderer - he must be found! Hunt out this animal, who runs to ground!" Half of the chorus people sang again. "Too long he's preyed on us - but now we know: the Phantom of the Opera is there, deep down below... "Who is this monster, this murdering beast? Revenge for Piangi! Revenge for Buquet! This creature must never go free..." The other half of the chorus sang. "Take her - forget me – forget all of this... Leave me alone - forget all you've seen... Go now - don't let them find you! Take the boat - leave me here - go now, don't wait... Just take her and go - before it's too late... Go... Go now - go now and leave me!" Erik sang full on crying at this point.
The two actors leave the stage and leave Erik alone.
"Masquerade... Paper faces on parade... Masquerade... Hide your face, so the world will never find you..."
But Christine shows back up and looks at Erik with pity.
"Christine, I love you..." He sang through tears as she gave him back the ring.
Once she left, her hand held Raoul's actors hand and they walked away.
"Say you'll share with me, one love, one lifetime... say the world and I will follow you..." She sang to Raoul. "Share each day with me..." "..each night..." "..Each morning..." They sang together walking off stage leaving only the Phantom by himself. "You alone can make my song take flight - it's over now, the music of the night" Erik sang crying, while breaking the mirror, shattering it into tiny fragments all over the floor.
Shortly after her returning performance, like 6 months or so, they were out in the garden celebrating the success of the new play, Christine was picking flowers while Erik was siting on the water fountain.
"Erik where's our daughter" As Christine turns around looking for her two boys but there playing quietly in the grass, trying to find Lucille.
"Erik go and find her please?"
Gustave's face has not gotten any worse just that little scar which Erik is happy.
"Mommy!" Lucille yelled. "Daddy scared me"
"Erik, how many times have I told you please do not scare our kids, now say your sorry"
Erik kneels down next to her, holding her little hands.
"I am sorry my child"
"Daddy!" She hugged him tightly.
He couldn't help but notice that he has lived this day before.
The dream! Erik exclaimed in his head.
Just then a man came up to Erik and he picked up his daughter as Christine walked over to the twins.
"Excuse me but are you Erik Destler?" The man said.
"Who's asking?" Erik said defensive.
The man walks up to Erik, examining his face and eyes very closely.
"I know your face any where Erik, you are my son"
"My father left when I was baby"
"Yes I did, I am sorry, I had my reasons, but I have a request of you"
"What?" Erik asked as he held his daughter closer to him, hoping that he doesn't want her.
"My reign is ending and I need an heir for the throne" "You want me to be that man?"
"If you would accept"
Erik looks at Christine but she was just as confused as he was.
"I don't think I could accept that, my family and my opera mean too much to me to give it all up to run a country"
"That's understandable, I almost left the throne for your mother as well, but they found me so I had to leave her"
"You mean if you would of stayed I wouldn't been beaten and tortured my whole life?"
"Yes, your mother hated you because of me"
"If you wouldn't have left I would of never met Christine, so I thank you for that"
"Your welcome, if that is what you want"
"But I am sorry these four people besides me are my life I wouldn't give them up for the world"
"I accept that, goodbye"
"Wait!" Christine said.
"You can always visit us, we'd appreciate it very much"
"I will take that invitation, thank you" He bows and then leaves.
Erik sets down Lucille and smiles at her.
"That was your father?"
"Yes he is"
"Why didn't you accept his offer?" "I told him and now I will tell you, Christine I love you, Lucille, Gustave and Leon with all my heart and no amount of anything can change how I feel, nor will I ever leave you for anything in the world, you are my everything"
"I love you too" She said not knowing what else to say.
Christine kisses him long and hard until she couldn't no longer.
"Forever?" She asked.
"Forever my love" He said smiling giving her a huge hug.
