Chapter 13
You will be Grateful in the End

From Christopher’s P.O.V

                She couldn't believe how gorgeous she was.

She was before I had put her in the water, but now she was perfect. Her green eyes, glowing sparkly hints of purple made her look like a mermaid. She continued staring at herself in the water.

                I went close and took her shoulders and brushed down her arms, “I can tell you what I know about me, about us. I can share with you the knowledge I have acquired over the years and show you how to live a better and more powerful life. There is so much more I could tell you, but I only can if you let me.” She opened her eyes and began taking deep breaths as she looked into my eyes, “There is so much more to you than you know. You only have to make it come alive. Please stay with me. Please become like me and together we can be more than I ever was. It will take time, but I know you will be grateful in the end.”

She shook her head. I grabbed her wrist and lifted her to her feet. I turned her around and pressed her against the wall. "You want to, Maggie. I know you do. There is no way you can go back to the way you were living before. No way. You are just like me. You are exactly like me."

                She looked around the room while I held her wrists up against the wall. She was breathing heavily and obviously thinking this through very hard. She gazed at her feet for a very long time and tears were rolling down her cheeks. Then after a long while she slowly lifted her wet face to mine and stared directly into my eyes. She opened her mouth, “I’m Maggie Gordon.” Her face turned hard then, "I'm not like you. You are a beast, who kills innocent people."

I chuckled and released her arms from the wall. I took a step back and looked her up and down. She stepped away from the wall glaring at me curiously. I circled her, "Oh but Maggie, you are like me. Don't you remember what you did to your mother?"

Her face began sorrowful and she hung her head. I kept talking, "I don't mean to bring up such harsh memories Maggie, but it is true. You are like me. You just hid what you really are for longer than I did."

She didn't look up but I could tell she was crying. I took my hand and gently brushed the hair from out of her face and onto her back, "I only eat to survive. Sure it tastes like the best thing in the world, and the temptation is way more pressuring, but honestly I only want to live. And I have been living for a while I must say. Its been quite some time since I ran away from the city and came here."

She finally spoke, "So it is true? You did come from the mental house? You ran away after eating people and came to the forest?"

I replied sternly, "Yes, but I'm not crazy." I paused, "This water is what gets me through. Without it, I would be old now."

"Whats in the water?"

"Maggie, I told you. I can't tell you much unless you promise me something."

"What?"

"Stay with me. I know you feel the light. I know you feel stronger when I'm here. You said so yourself. And trust me, you will want me with you soon."

"I can't."

"You must."

"I can't just leave my family and friends and everything outside of the forest!"

"What about me? Can you leave me?"

She thought about it hard. She turned away from me as more tears filled up her eyes, "I- I can't."

She continued to sob, I walked to her and pulled the hair away from her neck. I let a few breaths sneak down her throat before speaking, "Maggie, you don't deserve the life you live. You deserve better. You deserve this. You should be yourself. Except it."

Maggie was breathing heavily, "I don't know you."

I spoke again, "You will know me, you will."

"I don't know."

"How about this? My name is Christopher. If you promise to stay with me, I'll promise you something."

"What?"

"You'll be happy."

Maggie didn't speak for a long while. She was shaking and heavily breathing while she was stuck in the thought. Then she began nodding her head, "Okay." She whispered.
