The Invincible (CHP 25)


The Invincible (CHP 25)

I would like to thank you all for the constant love and support! Hope you enjoy today’s chapter ☺

Summary Of Last Chapter – Aiden, Sophie and Audrey try to get through a wall but it’s coated with mountain ash so they aren’t able to get through. A hellhound walks in and burns through the mountain ash. Aiden explains to Audrey that a hellhound is the most powerful supernatural creature and he keeps a balance between the human and supernatural world. Hellhound’s are messengers of death so they normally appear at places where someone is going to die!

Aiden, Sophie and Audrey fight with the vampires and rescue Theo but in the end Audrey gets stabbed and she falls down dead, her last words being her confession of love to Theo. Theo tries to revive her but in vain. She is taken away by the hellhound as Theo looks on helplessly…

Aiden’s Point of View

It’s been 2 days since Audrey’s death. No one has said a word. It’s as if Audrey took everyone’s happiness with her when she died… Natalie acts strong but I’ve seen he sob her heart out on the terrace when she’s alone. Even though she had left Audrey when she was little, the mother-daughter had grown closer in some ways during the 3 weeks Audrey stayed with us. After all, Natalie is Audrey’s mother… And losing a child is no joke!
Zack and the others just sit around, trying to distract themselves. No one had realized how close they had gotten to Audrey during the 3 weeks. And now that she is gone it’s like a part of each one of us has been lost.

Audrey.. She was such a jolly spirit. Always running to and fro, laughing, smiling, giggling, making others laugh. She was such a free spirit, such a daring heart, filled with so much love and passion for each being. It’s such a pain to think about her. It used to be her making all the noise in the house.. Shrieking when Jane used to teach her sword fighting, Giggling with Sophie and Lydia while playing board games, Making fun of Zack’s uptight nature, Taking piggyback rides on Dylan, Doing girly-stuff with Melissa, Bursting out laughing with me…
So many memories in such little time. Mr.Crepsly had said she would make history, this was the history she would make? I feel the guiltiest. It was because of me that Audrey died. She died saving me. She died a hero… That’s the history she made. She gave a new definition to selflessness, a new definition to the power of friendship.

Since yesterday we’ve been getting calls from the other werewolves, expressing their grief to her death, but they didn’t even know her. They didn’t know what she was.. That she was the only savior of our clan.. But now she’s gone. And honestly I don’t care if we win or lose the ware cause we all just lost the biggest prize out of our hands and there’s nothing! Nothing we could do to save her! I might be grieving the most but when I look over to the balcony, I see Theo sit there, cross-legged, his hands over his chest and his head drooped down.

Ever since the hellhound took Audrey away, he hasn’t muttered a word. Everyone has been so worried about him. Trying to get him to eat or drink, to sleep. But he lies awake, repeating her words to himself over and over again in his mind, as if imagining her so vividly will bring her back…
He’s broken. More shattered than any one of us. Because we might have lost a dear friend but he, he lost his first love. He lost the first girl he had ever loved and when she was in his last moments, she was in his arms and he still couldn’t do anything.. Anything to save her. That’s what he holds himself guilty for. The only time I’ve ever seen Theo cry is when she died. And when he broke, all of broke. It’s as if Audrey held the strings in her hands for each one of us. When she left, the strings loosened and Theo’s broke first and then we all fell down like domino’s and none of can get up until Theo overcomes himself and makes a new string to help us all….

Theo’s Point of View

In the days that follow, it’s movement not stillness that help keep the grief at bay, so I walk the compound halls instead of sleeping. I watch everyone else trying to recover. I keep finding myself stifled by the company of others and then crippled by loneliness when they leave. I am terrified and I don’t even know of what, because I have lost everything already. My hands shake now as I sit in my balcony, cross-legged. I remember the first time I saw her. A truck pulling over and I registered a red blur from the distance I was standing. I pulled her across the road and her hand was small, but warm and then she stood before me, short, thin and plain in all ways unremarkable – except that she was the first girl that my eyes floated on. I never felt that way before. Her eyes were so stern, so insistent.

I get up and walk past a security barrier, out of the house and stand in front of a waterfall right opposite. A man stands there opening the valve of his water tank and soon water gushes out, splattering all over the road, soaking the bottom of the man’s pants.
I shudder a little. It’s Veronica. I turn away not wanting her face anyone. Not wanting to face her. Because she knew Audrey was going to die. She is a Banshee. She knew everything and she didn’t even bother to warn her.

“Wait. Please..” she says.
“What?” I say turning around. I don’t want to look at her, to measure how ,much or little she grieves for her. Still, I do look at her, wondering if I can see some of Audrey in her face, still hungry for her even now that I know she’s gone.

“I don’t mean to bother you, but I want you to know something… You think I didn’t warn her about her death right? I actually did.. I actually told her the future. It was her decision to still go in there and save you all… That’s why when she was in your arms in her last moments you couldn’t take her pain. It’s because the stab wasn’t sudden. She knew, she knew it was the end. She was ready for it. That’s why it didn’t hurt her…” She says as she tries to fight off her tears.
I should feel something. Something about her. But I feel nothing at all. I feel farther than ever….
I grind the heels of my hands into my eyes like I can push the tears back into my skull. No crying. I chastise myself. If I let out a little of the emotion out, all of it will come out and will never end.

5 days later

There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved for the sake of something reater.
But sometimes it doesn’t.
Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.

That is the sort of bravery I must have now.

If people were fire, than I was a flame and she was a bonfire. And I suppose
a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.

  3. Hello mystery girl
    Loved your story to the core… is amazing, adventurous and full of suspiciousness….. Actually I like reading stories full of thrill and adventure… .. and your story is excellent…… the most important is your vocabulary and writing skills which keep up the interest and suspence in each and every line of the story…. I loved each n every chapter…. Each chapter reveals some truth , solves some mystery but in end follows a new puzzle… a new question .. which creates more energy and thirst to find answers…..your story is full of energy and enthusiasm…… and not only adventure, energy but you very beautifully portrait and made feel every emotion … love,care,anger,courage, revenge, protectiveness…. etc….
    I couldn’t express how happy I feel while reading. automatically smile comes on my face…..I am crazy about your story….
    Audrey – Theo ‘s chemistry is perfect….. Audrey is my favorite character……. Theo’s pack or family….. set an example ….the love,care ,bonding they have.. Excellent

    Actually I am short of words how to explain… how much I am loving your story…. Its different, your idea,plot,content.. makes the difference..
    The more i read there is more urgo of knowing what next would happen..

    When I read last chapter I was literally shocked…. Audrey dead !!!!! I couldn’t believe because she is most important character.,,protagonist but I have a belief your story has supernatural elements so there would surely be a way of her coming back….. Eagerly waiting for her part
    Loved Audrey confessing her love towards Theo….that was very emotional and heart touching… Seeing your love dying in your arms and you could not do anything to save….
    Sorry I didn’t comment on last chp actually I found that late …didn’t know when you posted….
    Plzzz bring back Audrey soon …..couldn’t see Theo like such
    All the best for your well
    You are in school or college ???
    Your precap is really very exciting and full of suspence….plz post soon after your exams

    1. Hi Aastha!
      I’m ever so elated to know that you like my story 🙂 I don’t have anything to say… I love the enthusiasm and zest you have shown through this heartfelt comment and I have absolutely no words to describe the joy I’m feeling while reading your comment! I have no words to thank you for the lovely words you have used! 🙂 Soo thank you soooooo much! 🙂 *hugs*
      AHAHA! Audrey and Theo are goals! Sometimes I imagine myself as Audrey and wonder how I would feel if I was ever in love! Probably that’s why it seems so real *wink*… Yeah! The last chapter was particularly hard to write; putting grief into words is much more harder than it seems especially when the character that is grieving is more closed and discreet like Theo!
      Obviously Audrey is coming back… That was pretty obvious since the story can’t run without her but the way she comes back is a little twist!
      Thank you sooo much for your blessings for my exam! I’m in school 🙂 In Grade 9 🙂 I will try to update as soon as possible 🙂 Byeeee TC

  4. Is Audrey really dead??!!!!????
    I am not able to say anything else now…waiting for the next update…and hopefully with Audrey in it.

    1. Can Audrey die so quickly?!? SPOILER ALERT! Well that will be revealed in the next chapter 🙂 Let’s all hope to see a bit of Audrey in the next chapter 🙂 Anyways I will try to post quickly! Until then TC 🙂 Byeee

  5. Awesome but pls bring her back miss her alot

    1. Thank you Sam 🙂 Audrey comes back or not? Find out by reading the next chapter 🙂

  6. I have lil time to comment. Hence a short comment dear. But todays epi was full of heaviness. I really felt my heart cringe at their pain. The way you explained their loss tgeir pain and their unsuccessful tries to recover- everything touched my heart. Pain can be so surreal too! Never knew!! Worrds were so apt n beautiful dear! Waiting for your next update and I dont wanna explain this epi much for the heavy emotions attached to it and tge way those went through my heart. Keep writing♥ TC

    1. Hiii Bisha 🙂
      Yup.. It was a pretty heavy chapter… Grief can be such a strange thing. It can mould a person to become something new or completely break the same person… It makes me think a lot! Trust me, writing this chapter made me wince so much… I could feel my own heart crumple against my shirt 🙂 Aren’t words just so surreal? They can make you feel so much.. One small meaningful sentence can make such an impact on the tiny brains of ours… Words.. They’re like a game.. Use them appropriately and you have a win but use one wrong word and you’re doomed! Anyways I’m gonna stop rambling and let you be 🙂 Until the next episode 😉 Byeee TC
