“No!” Keira shouted.

She appeared in front of Locke, shaking her head.

“Keira, I love you. I understand that there are rules, that we could never be together, I understand…really I do.” Locke whispered. “I can’t help but love. And it hurts...so much that I’m not allowed to love you. I can’t stop loving you, and I won’t.

“Things are the way they are, but they have a chance.” he said softly, motioning to me and Edward. Her took her chin in his hand, and rubbed her cheek with his thumb.

“No you can’t. Don’t be stupid Locke!” she shouted angrily. “You simply can’t. You can’t. I love you Locke. You shouldn’t do this, you don’t have to!”

She continued to repeat ‘you can’t’ over and over. She moved closer to Locke, looking extremely angry.

“You can’t. Don’t you dare. Don’t you dare take yourself away from me!” she screamed, tears running down her cheeks.

“Keira…” he muttered.

“No! God damn it. Stop it Locke!! No!” she began hitting his chest angrily. “No, no, no!!”

He leaned down and kissed her hard, on the lips.

Then he moved to the edge of the pit, looked back at Keira, sorrow in his eyes. He looked back down at the fire waiting for him, and turned to look at me and Edward. He smiled.

“Locke! Don’t. Please don’t. There must be another way!” I cried.

He shook his head sadly.

“I’ll never forget you, Bella Swan.”

And with one final glance at Keira, he jumped backwards into the fires of hell.

I closed my eyes, and felt Edward’s grip tighten around me. I heard Katie scream and I opened my eyes. She jumped after Locke put by the time she landed, there was only floor. The pit had closed up.

“You’re free to go,” Anger announced casually, then her and Lust disappeared.

Keira lay on the floor, crying. She punched the floor and screamed angrily.

I stared at her as she broke down and curled up into a ball. Edward gently pulled me away from the scene.

We walked towards a small light, screams of pain coming from behind us. Edward picked me up and carried me.

“Close your eyes, Bella,” Edward murmured in my ear.

I obeyed. I could still her Keira’s screams behind me.

“You can open your eyes.” Edward whispered in my ear after awhile.

I opened my eyes slowly and looked around. We were back in the hospital. Edward set me down, but my legs didn’t have enough strength and I fell. I lay on the floor and felt the tears finally come.

Edward sat down, pulled my head onto his lap and started to stroke my hair.

His cell phone buzzed in his pocket and he answered it quickly.

“Hello?”

“Alice came down…we’re fine…yeah she’s here…see you soon.”

He hung up and I stared at his face.

“Are you real?” I asked.

He smiled, “As real as a mythical creature can be.”

Then he noticed my attire. “Nice dress,” he commented, raising an eyebrow.

I would’ve laughed, but I really didn’t feel like it. I felt very cold, almost empty, but with Edward here I still felt much better than how I would have felt if he wasn’t here. Somewhere, Keira was mourning, crying…dying inside.

“Edward…will Keira be okay?” I asked quietly.

I waited but he didn’t respond. I guess I got my answer. I could still hear her screams although she was far away. I could still her face although she was no where around. And I can still see all life leave her face, and I will never forget it. The look on her face…shocked, angered, pained.

I sat up and looked around and saw the floor we were on was empty.

“Edward…Locke…” I started crying uncontrollably all of a sudden.

Edward wrapped his arms around me.

“Shh…it’s okay, Bella, it’s okay.” he soothed

“It’s not! It’s all my fault!! Edward he’s dead! Gone! And Keira…” I mumbled through tears.

Edward lifted my head and gently pressed his lips to mine. I felt dizzy and went limp in his arms. He pulled away after awhile and stared down at me.

I knew what he was doing, he was trying to ease my pain, distract me. Normally it would work, but guilt was eating away at my inside.

“Edward…” I sighed.

Seeing that it hadn’t worked, he sighed. He pulled me closer and kissed the top of my head.

“Edward,” I whispered sadly again.

I lay there, in his arms, on the lonely hospital floor, crying me heart out. And I knew somewhere Keira was doing the same, except she was alone…
