AN:I didn't even realize it was coming up so soon, but this is the last chapter!!! *tear* I worked on this till almost four in the morning, so you guys better like it! Just kidding. :) Anyway, enjoy!
"Scarlet! What happened!"I shrieked as I rushed to her side. I got really scared because I've never seen her like this before.
"My magic! All of my magic! Mark stole it!"she cried.
I was speachless. "...But, how could he do that?"
"Open your eyes, Lyla!"She screeched. "He put me under a love spell this whole time!...Tonight he asked me to give me his magic and I did it!...I'm so stupid..."
I tried to swallow but my throat didn't allow it. I just couldn't believe this could've happened. "Scarlet...Is there any way that I could get it back?"I asked solomly. She stared at me for a few moments, thinking.
"Well, you know that spell that I've been working on?"she asked. I nodded and she continued, "That was to break Kurt's spell, but I can change it so that it'll give you your memories back. I think if you had all of your memories back, you'd know what to do. Just add pixie dust to that."She pointed at a jar on the counter and did as she said and then handed it to her. She began putting it together properly. She had calmed down now, but she still looked so sad.
"Scarlet...What was Kurt's spell exactly?"I asked softly.
She stopped what she was doing and looked up at me. "He put it on me so that I'd keep my mouth shut about what he does,"she answered. Before I could ask for an explanation, she continued,"He goes after pixies just to get their magic for his own selfishness. I've wanted to tell you for so long, but I couldn't because of the spell. Once I knew he was going after you, I wanted to tell you, but I couldn't...no matter how much I tried...Now it's too late. He's gone now with your magic."
"...What....No way! But, but he seemed so trustworthy! How could he do that!"Just like how Scarlet had been not too long ago, I started crying. I really was starting to love him...How could he have done this to me...? I thought that he really did like me. How could he just leave like this...
"I used to go out with him, but once he told me about...what he does, I just couldn't stand him,"she told me. She walked to me with the jar. "It's done. Just drink this."
I smelled it and it was repulsive. "Alright,"I sighed prior to drinking it. At first I didn't really feel much different, but in a few minutes all of my memories came rushing back. After it seemed I had all of my memory back, I realized that I honestly didn't even need them. Everyone still treated me the same. Sure I knew a lot more, but it wasn't very sinificant.
"So where can I find Mark?"I asked her.
"I don't have a clue, Lyla. All of my magic is gone, remember?"
I grunted, "I'll find him..."
"But how, Lyla?"
"I don't know. I'll find a way,"I promised.
I put a jacket on over my dress, put on a pair of sneakers, and headed outside. I decided it would be best to head back to where the dinner was. There was a chance that he was still there.
Eventually, I made it there, however no one was left except for a handful of pixies, but they were only cleaning up. I asked a few of them if Mark was still there, but they said that he left. I then spotted Melinda who was instructing them what to do. "Melinda!"I called. She looked surprised to see me. She walked over to me.
"Is it about Scarlet?"she asked knowingly.
"Yes. Where can I find Mark?"I inquired desperately.
"I'll take you to him. It'll be faster,"she offered. She grabbed on to my hand and dragged me outside. She let go of me and hold out her hand and a broom stick appeared. She got on and looked at me and said, "Jump on."
"Whatever you say..."Once we got in to the air I held on to her arm for dear life because I feared if I lost my balance I'd fall off.
She laughed and assured me,"I won't let you fall, I promise!"
"I'm sorry! I never went on one of these, and I am scared to death right now!"
She muttered, "Stop being a baby...Were almost there anyway." To be honest, I didn't even know where we were going. I just trusted that she was taking me to wherever Mark was. We ended up landing in front of this huge mansion. What's with these spellcasters and mansion!? Once we got inside we were immediately greeted by atleast four butlers. She waved them away and we walked past them. We walked down a long hallway and she stopped at a door. She banged on it loudly and scampered away after saying, "Good luck!"
I sighed and soon enough, Mark answered the door standing in a small tank top and pajama pants. I blushed slightly. He greeted me first in surprise,"Lyla?"
"Hi Mark,"I said softly. He moved over so that I could walk in to his room. I sat down on his neatly made bed. "I'll get straight to it. Please...Give it back."
"What are you talking about?"he questioned uneasily.
"Scarlet's magic,"I cried.
"I can't...I stole it to be more powerful...For your sake..."
"What do you mean, 'for my sake'? Since Scarlet is hurting about this, then so am I!"I declared.
He sighed, "It's a long story."
I folded my arms and countered,"Well I've got time."
"Ug...Well I guess it was because I wanted to protect you."
"What the hell! First you hate me, now you want to protect me! Why are you making this so confusing..."I snapped. I was getting irritated at that point. I stood up and walked up to him.
"Calm down...I'll admit, I did hate you at first, but then I started to pay attention to you and start to take a liking in you...The reason that I wanted to protect you...I was in love with a pixie once, but I was too weak to protect her. I just didn't want that to happen again...I've hated pixies ever since then, but now I realize how dumb it was."
"...I understand, but that's not protecting me. It's hurting me more than anything,"I informed him surely. I took a step closer to him and begged, "Look, I have a whole bunch of problems right now, and It would make me feel so much better if you gave her magic back because...she's the only one who can protect me."
He looked at me with teary eyes. "If that's what you really want..."he agreed and pulled me in to a hug. "Just visit me every once and a while, okay?"
"Of course I will. Thank you Mark,"I vowed and hugged him tightly. The rest of the night was kind of a blur to me. Mark came back to Scarlet's and gave her magic back. They yelled back and forth, but I eventually got them to calm down and make up.
That night I just layed in my bed wide awake, just thinking. It seemed that everything was all patched up and fixed now, but it wasn't. There was a hole still in my heart. Only Kurt could fill it up. Now I knew that I did love him. If I didn't then I wouldn't have been hurting this much! It hurt so bad because after hearing about what he does, and the fact that he stole my pixie dust, disgusted me. My head was telling me to forget about him because he was just a two faced jerk, but my heart just couldn't let him go.
Ever since that day, I've been depressed, and even though I tried not to show it, everyone could see that I was hurting. "Don't even waste your time thinking about him, Lyla. You'll get over it eventually,"Mark would always tell me that. One time he asked me if I would go back to him if I had the chance, and I of course said yes. He said that he would only hurt me again, yet worse if I did. I did take what he said to heart. I learned to trust himEverytime that Scarlet knew I was thinking about Kurt, she would give me a sympethetic look. Even though I felt horrible, it was nice to know that they cared. Especially since Mark used to hate me. He turned out to be a great friend.

I had moved on to the next town, far away from Scarlet and Lyla and moved on to another pixie. She was nothing like how Lyla was. She adored me and never left me alone. It was so annoying, but it did make stealing her magic a whole lot easier though. But, being with her made me think of Lyla so much. She sure was something else. I think I actually liked how she pushed me away. It was almost her way of saying that she loved me. Maybe after I was done with this town, I'd go check up on her. I just wanted to see what she thought of me now. And I just wanted to see her face. I was beginning to forget it, and I didn't want that to happen...

One day I was going to the store to get Scarlet a soda like how I always used to exept today something happened. Something big. One the way there I ran right in to Kurt. I swear, I was about to cry. "Kurt,"I breathed, "Why are you here?"
"Why the hell are you like this! I can't forget you!"he snarled, scowling at me. He sighed and his face turned calm. "Lyla. Come with me. We could leave this town together."
I walked up to him hesitantly and pulled him in to a hug. "I'm sorry. I just don't want to get hurt again." I let go of him and continued to walk. A few tears rolled down my face. I would have been shocked if he had let me go like that.
"Lyla! Can I atleast give you your magic back!"he requested.
I whiped tears from my cheeks and looked back at him. "Really?"
He nodded and told me, "Just meet me here tomorrow, same time as now." He gave me a peace sign and dissapeared in the blink of an eye.
When I got back to the shop, Mark was there and Scarlet was upstairs busy with something, so I decided to tell him about what just happened. He usually gave me good advice. "Lyla...Don't even think about going! He's up to something, I just know it." I had a tendancy to listen to him, but did I that time...? Nope!
"So, where is it?"I asked Kurt, refering to my magic. That's the only reason why I had decided to go back. He pulled something out of the coat of his pocket. It was a little bottle, but when I realized it wasn't my magic because of it's lack of brightness, it was too late. I threw the love spell in my face and it took it's effect the moment it hit me. My body craved to be by him, but in my mind I hated him for it. The spell was much stronger than the one that Scarlet was under before, so I felt like I couldn't be apart from him ever. Now I could understand how Scarlet could hate him so much, because I was feeling that now, and it infuriated me how I couldn't hit him or anything. If I tried, I ended up kissing him instead, or worse. I was like his love slave now. I just wanted to die because I turned out to hate him so much.
I was now living with him on a deserted island in a mansion on it. It was horrible because there was no way that I could leave, but he left the island all of the time to go places. I always stayed inside and found something to keep myself busy with. It was a mansion afterall. I remember so many times Scarlet and Mark tried to save me from there. However, Kurt was too powerful than the both of them combined, sadly enough, so all of their efforts failed. He told me one time that my pixie magic contained the most power and he didn't quite know why.
On one day of my boring life, Kurt came to me with a peice of paper and a pen. He said, "If you can write down 'I love Kurt', on this papter, then you'll be free you of the spell that you're under."
I took the paper with a smile, even though I was scowling on the inside and tried to write that down. When I tried to write it, an excruciating pain went through my body when I got to his name of the phrase. "It's under a spell. It won't let you write something that you don't mean,"he told me with a smirk. "That'll guarentee that you'll love me forever and ever." He then left the room grinning. I growled silently in my throat. On the paper it said, 'I love' so far. I added, 'Mark and Scarlet'. I never did see them ever again. I was stuck on this island for the rest of my life 'loving' Kurt. The worst part of it was that he put a spell on me that made me immortal like him. He said that we'd love each other for the rest of eternity, and that we'd lived 'happily' ever after.
AN: I hope you enjoyed the story. I really want to know what you thought the story overall and the ending. It was kind of a plot twist if you ask me. I'm kind of curious if you think this ending fit the story well, or if a happy ending would have been more suitable. You know I always like reviews, so get to it! It'll only take a minute or two anywho. :)
