(A hellish nightmare)

Having been ill for several days, Emily felt drowsy and slept often. When she was awake she asked for Jacob's company as having him close soothed her greatly.    

Jack's death had a vast impact on her. After all, she had heard the thudding sound of his impact with the earth, after he jumped off the building. The echoes of that trauma lingered in her consciousness. When she closed her eyes, she heard it most clearly. It was a terrible sound to hear the snapping of bones and the squishing of flesh as a human body met an immovable surface.    She was tortured by it day and night, and she would often wake up in a sweat as she relived the terrible moment time and again.    

As always she was haunted by the same nightmare and would awake in a state of extreme tension almost every night. Even when she slept, her eyes were scrunched tightly shut, as if she were faced by something horrible.  

Jacob, having taken to sleeping next to her, awoke first as she cried out in her dreams. He held her tightly in his arms, warming her icy body with his own heat. Gently he stroked her hair to comfort her.    

It seemed as if he were comforting a baby in its uneasy sleep.    

"No! Don't leave me!" she begged in her dreams, her face pale and vulnerable.  

  Jack's death had cast such a scar upon her soul that she was constantly fearing Jacob being in danger. She dreaded that one day he might suffer the same horrible death as Jack...   

 Unfortunately, Jacob misunderstood her desperate words spoken in sleep. He mistakenly believed that she pined for Jack, and didn't want him to die. He believed that she still was unwilling to leave him!  

Enraged at the thought that she could still have feelings for the dead bastard, he wanted to shout, but could not do so while she lingered in sleep. All that was left to him was to curse Jack over and over in his heart, and wish that he could have cut his mutilated body into a million pieces!    

Grabbing Jacob's hands, Emily refused to let go. She bit into her lips in unconscious agitation until a thin line of red blood had spread to color her mouth.    

She resembled a vampire beauty and he was struck by her morbid aesthetic appeal.    

Despite his anguish at, what he saw as, rejection, he lowered his head and kissed her lightly. He opened her lips slightly to prevent her hurting herself further.    

She gradually relaxed and drew a shuddering breath upon being kissed. Her body yielded to him and slowly became less tense.  

The familiar scent of his breath made her feel safe, and though she was still pale, she was no longer as scared as before.    

With his close proximity and offered safety, she drifted away into a deeper sleep state.    

He kissed her over and over, as if he would starve without the banquet that was she.    

He was obsessed with her, and could not get enough of her.    

If he had believed in spells and enchantments, then he would surely have believed her a witch, who had stolen his soul and captivated him with her magics.    

How could he possibly be so addicted to her? There would be plenty of time for him to learn the truth.    


Finally, awaking from the terrible sleep, Emily felt drained and her mind was blank, as if even thought had deserted her. She couldn't recall anything and stared about in incomprehension. It took several seconds for her mind to focus and for her to realize where she was.    

Slowly, little by little her memories caught up and she recalled the recent events.    

Jack was dead.    

He had called her before jumping to his death, hoping that she would forgive him. Failing to get that from her, he had chosen to die, so that she would always remember him.  

  He said it, and he did it.    

She had heard the sound of his body striking concrete, and her heart would never be the same for it.  

  His last breath had echoed in her ear, and then he was no more.  

Greatly traumatized by his death she had fallen ill and had been unstable for several days. She had almost lost her sanity because of it.    

Her feelings were complicated where Jack was concerned. His death was no different. Her love for Jack stopped long time ago when he betrayed her. In fact she now hated his guts!   

 But she had never wished him such a terrible death though! She was affected by his final decision.  

  Jack's violent death made her fear even more for Jacob. She dreaded that he would leave her, and then suffer a similar fate.    

The threat of the chip possibly existing in his brain was always present in her mind. It was like a time bomb, and she feared that it might explode sooner of later, claiming his life.   

 These worries pervaded her mind so much that she even dreamed of them. 

 Feeling the anxiety of her thoughts return, she clenched the bed quilt tightly with her hands soaked in cold sweat.   

 The other side of the bed was cold, as if no one had lain on it. Sitting alone on the over sized bed made her petite figure look even more diminished, and she was an image of loneliness and despair.    

Despite her days spent in a near comatose state, she sensed that a presence had been close to her at all times. Instinctively she knew that Jacob had been with her through it all.    

His possessiveness meant that he would not leave her, nor would he allow other men to assist her. Most of the doctors that had tended her had been female, as he didn't even trust male doctors to treat her.    

She was unsure if she had made any progress in earning his love again. 

Turning to the side-table she noticed the calendar and paled as she saw the date.  

Sean had said that he would spare her a month's time.  

Within a month, she had to make Jacob fall in love with her again.   

 Only in this way, would Sean abandon his plan.    

But now twenty days had passed already, and there were only ten days left!    

She had failed to ascertain the veracity of Sean's words, nor had she managed to make Jacob fall in love with her either.    Her heart felt as if it were being consumed by a raging fire. Doubt assailed her constantly. She recalled her dreams and feared they were becoming omens.    

In her dream, Jacob had died in so many ways, and she was always unable to save him.    

It almost felt like a hellish nightmare.  

She heard the doorknob turn then. The sound interrupted her bleak thoughts.  

  Her eyes instantly sought out the tall and handsome man whom she knew so well. He looked into her fearful and confused eyes and approached with his usual swiftness.    

"Are you awake now?" asked Jacob.    

He was dressed in dark blue leisure wear, with the zipper casually open, showing off his delicate clavicles and strong honey-colored chest. He was the image of striking sexiness and a whimsical hint of laziness.    

His attractiveness was marred with a threatening rage that darkened his eyes though. It was clear that he was in a foul mood and very likely to blow up.    

"Jacob..." she tried to speak, but her voice was hoarse and she struggled to talk. Choking weakly she coughed several times.  

Frowning he poured her a glass of warm water. Reaching for it, her hand closed on nothing but air.    

Barely awake, she was still a little confused and dull, so she didn't immediately understand what he intended.    

Then she saw him pour the water into his own mouth and bend down to kiss her lips.    

She felt the warm water trickle into her mouth.    

Her face turned red, and she tried to turn her face away. He held her face tightly though, and she couldn't escape.    

He transferred all the water to her mouth, and then French kissed her, as if sealing the transaction with interest.    

The warm liquid moistened her parched throat and she drank it up like a sweet spring, finally letting out a deep sigh of contentment.
