BET Ты THOUGHT I FORGOT!
The system announced him. She froze, still in debate. She could feel her сердце beating in her chest. She hadn't expected him back so soon. She grabbed her bag and headed out of the room. She set the bag down when she saw him. He looked at her and she could feel her сердце breaking again. She ran over and kissed him. He kissed her back, pulling her closer. After a few минуты of continuous kissing, they pulled away. He looked into her eyes and moved the hair out of her face.
“Don't go,” he whispered.
“I have to,” she whispered back.
“Becca told us what happened last time.”
Tara wanted to look away from the painful sadness in his eyes. But she couldn't.
“I have no choice, Alek.”
“If Ты go, Ты could die.”
She shook her head, unable to speak from the amount of tears she was holding back.
“You know I would do anything if Ты asked it.”
“Then stay. Stay with me.”
“Why not?! Tara Ты keep saying Ты can't! Why not?”
“She's saving lives, Ты fool.”
Heads swerved to where Satstruiku stood half hidden among the shadows. A few others stood behind him, the same crew from before.
“Hello Tara. Are Ты ready to go?”
“Yes,” she answered at the same time Alek said, “She isn't going.”
Satstruiku raised his eyebrows. He stepped closer to the two. Silver, Ciel, Fang, and Devin were also in the room.
“Who's going to order her to stay?” Satstruiku inquired.
“No one. But I won't let Ты take her.”
Tara's eyes widened and she stepped away from Alek.
“Kuran, please! He-he didn't mean it!”
“Don't fear, Tara. I know he meant it. For your sake however...I'll let it slide.”
He reached behind Alek and grabbed the case of Tara's things. He moved quickly as Alek moved to uppercut him. He sighed.
“Not a wise choice.”
“You made the wrong choice in coming here.”
Satstruiku laughed a bit before looking back to Tara.
“I enjoy him. He is quite amusing. I see why Ты took an interest him. But we must be going.”
Tara nodded. She shifted closer to him.
“You. Are not. Taking her!”
Alek pulled out one of his various weapons and aimed it at Satstruiku. Before he could pull the trigger, Tara jumped into range.
“You are a fool, aren't you? Has it never occurred to Ты that the reason Tara so kindly agreed to come with me is because she wants to save you?”
The room was silent for a few minutes.
“Wha-what do Ты mean?”
“Do Ты know what happened to Tara's family?”
“They died. In a fire.”
Tara looked away and Satstruiku smiled.
“That's what the media knew. Tara here disobeyed a direct order to come with me the first time. I am afraid to say my crew was hungry. They...had their fill.”
There were devious smirks and licked lips from the goons behind him.
“Now I have ordered her back to me. It was her choice. But she decided to follow her training.”
“You murder to get your way.”
“A life for a life.”
Alek growled. Satstruiku motioned the others out and headed to the zeta.
“Say your last goodbyes, Tara. Ты will not see these people in this century again.”
Tara looked at the others. Silver ran over to her and hugged her tight. They exchanged a few words before Fang surprised them all by hugging her too. She looked over at the other two boys in the room. Ciel moved first and hugged her.
“Try to forget me,” she whispered.
“I'll see what I can do.”
She nodded and pulled back. She moved to Alek and hugged him. He hugged her back and it looked like they wanted to break each other.
“I wish I could stop you, stop him.”
“I know. But Ты can't. I Любовь Ты Alek.”
“Tara, my darling, I Любовь you.”
The two reluctantly pulled back from each other and Devin stepped forward. She hugged Tara close.
Tara pulled away and, before her сердце could break from all the tears, she ran through the zeta beam without looking back.
