Palax: Defenders of the Unseen PREVIEW
I wondered the halls of my school aimlessly unsure of what was going on inside my mind and soul. I was confused by the feelings inside, but yet I walked around trying to sort them out. I could go to Jansen and talk to him about it, but he was at the pixie academy with a very important meeting. Plus, I don't even think I could've put anything to words at the moment. Usually when I had problems I would go to Ezra's place, but he was the problem.
Ezra was gone, he had moved away. He abandoned Palax, but it wasn't his choice. His parents forced him to go to Georgia with them. He told me the day before that he tried to explain to them, but he couldn't' get it through to them. He didn't want to tell them about Palax and give our identities away.
"Just tell them, Ezra! It isn't gonna harm anything! I've met your parents they're understanding, they'll let you stay with us."
"You're wrong, Stacy! You don't know my parents; you don't know how they really are. They just try to stay nice around you guys because you're the only friends I got! She always wants me to be popular and fit in with everybody else. She's moving to Georgia because of me! She's making me change my look and everything just so I can start over and make friends there. Friends who will probably be fake and two-faced."
"But you have friends here that love you, can't she understand?"
"I guess not…Listen, it's gonna be alright. I'll try and keep in touch with you all; I might even try to run away! But promise me one thing." he grabbed my hand and looked me in the eyes.
"What is it?"
"Don't ever forget me…" he let go of my hand and walked out of the school. I was at his locker helping him pack his stuff up at the time. After moments of shock I finally realized that he had left something in my hands. I looked down to see a small envelope. I opened it up and grabbed the paper inside. It read:
Stacy, I am going to miss you more than anything and I hope you know that. I am leaving you this so you can always remember me. Hopefully we can catch up later.
As I put the letter back I noticed a small chain on the inside. I pulled it out to see it was a necklace with a small amulet dangling from it. It was in the shape of a dog tag and and words engraved on it. The words read I'll always love you…no matter the distance. Tears formed in my eyes as I opened the amulet to see a small picture of me and him. It was taken on the day we went on a date together.
After that I stayed dazed out, trying to clear my mind. It was Saturday, but I still felt like I should be at the school for some reason. I didn't notice where I was going half the time and I would find myself in random places. The bathroom, the library, my homeroom, and even the janitors' closet. Finally I gave up and stopped at one place and decided I should just sit sown. I looked around to see where I had ended up and saw I had stopped at Ezra's locker.
I walked over to his number and put my hand on it. Locker 239... I stared at the lock and fidgeted with the numbers. After a moment I slammed my back on the lockers and slid down to the floor. I gripped the chain that hung around my neck as tears began pouring down my face. He's gone; I can't believe he's gone… I sat there rubbing the amulet for what seemed like hours until I heard a noise.
The school stays open on the weekends so people can use the library, but of course nobody ever did. On bad days I would come here just to wonder around alone to clear my mind. I never saw people come here so that's why I stayed. I stopped coming a while ago though, decided to forget about my problems instead of basking in them. But today something here was calling my name.
I looked around to see who possibly could be here. Maybe people started coming here after I left… I ignored the footsteps and put my head in my hands. I couldn't help but listen to the steady beat of the person's feet; the steadiness reminded me of Ezra. When he listened to his music he would always walk to the beat of it, I guess that's what happens after being in marching band.
I listened as the footsteps got louder, but slower. Soon they stopped and I could feel someone was close to me. I didn't bother to look at them and just sat there. After a minute the person began walking again and I thought they were finally leaving. But instead, they came and stood in front of me. I looked at the familiar shoes standing in front of me and tried to process who they belonged to.
"Are you ok, Stacy?" the voice startled me for a moment. My head slowly rose from my hands and looked up at the boy.
"Ezra?" I stared at him as he stared back with a puzzled look.
"Yeah it's me, are you ok?"
"You're here…you're still here. I thought you left…" I was talking to myself still a little unsure on what was happening. Ezra grabbed my hand to help me up and gave me a big hug.
"Yeah I'm still here, I told my parents like you said. And of course they still wanted me to go. Well, let's just say they don't know I'm here." he rubbed his hand through my hair like he always did when I was sad.
"You ran away?"
"Of course, I don't think I could've lasted there, or anywhere, without you. The thought of leaving you and Palax was just too unbearable." I sighed with relief, happy he was here to stay with me. I still kept crying into his shoulder though, but they were tears of joy. "Stacy, why did you come here? You only come here when you're extremely depressed."
"I had to sort through my thoughts and feelings; I was just so in shock of you leaving me….I…well I still don't understand. I just….I guess…I just can't live without you!" I finally let it out, the feeling in my soul that had been trying to surface. "Don't ever leave me, Ezra!"
"I won't, I'm here to stay. Nothing can separate me from Palax." after I finally had calmed down he let go of me. "Where is Jansen, why aren't you with him?"
"He had a meeting…and well…he wouldn't have understood. He would've just started freaking out and stuff. He always gets like that when he figures out I'm sad or something."
"Oh…I see." he looked down for a moment and I leaned my back on the lockers.
"Why did you come here?"
"Well I don't know, something inside me wanted to come here. I guess it was to see you." he smiled at me. I stared at him for a while. I could always get lost in his pale blue eyes; I guess it was a weakness. After a while Ezra got closer to me and put his arms on the lockers, pinning me in between them and him. He stared at me for a moment more then glanced down. He was thinking about something, I could tell by his face.
He looked back at me and before I knew it the space between me and him was gone. He had closed in on me pressing his lips against mine. I was surprised at first and thought about pulling away, but then I gave in. His kiss was extremely passionate and I could feel a spark within me.
He pulled away from me for a moment and was about to say something, but instead he just collapsed in on me again. Except this time deeper, his tongue trailed in to meet mine. I could tell he was trying to hold back, but he never did pull away and neither did I. Something inside of me was screaming to stay with him, and another was whispering to get away while I still had the chance. But of course I listened to the voice screaming at me with excitement.
I found my hands around Ezra's neck and my fingers exploring his hair. Ezra was holding on to me as if I was a lifeline, like if he let go he would plummet to his death. After a while he let go of me and slammed his fist onto the lockers. He pulled away from me and screamed. "I'm sorry! Gah, what's wrong with me?!" he was panting and I could see sweat forming on his face. He put his hands on his head and turned away from me. "I just can't control myself when I'm with you…"
I stared in shock for a moment but was interrupted form someone screaming, "What the heck is going on?! Stacy, are you ok? I heard a loud bang and a scream. What's going on here?" I looked over at Jansen and saw that Ezra was looking down at his feat. Oh god, this is going to be bad…
This was a preview to the sequel of my other story, Soul of Embers.
So…..yeah. I didn't know how to start the story and I'm still thinking on the plot and stuff. This idea had been in my mind a while and I felt like I should type it up to see if it fits to the story or not. I might or might not put this in the real thing, depends on what the rest of the plot will hold. But hopefully I'll be able to fit this in. I need some ideas and stuff so it would help greatly of people reviewed. So…um… by for now.
