My Immortal Beloved
by JT Poole
It seems things are looking really bad for the Witches' Five now. It seems like the heavy hitters of the Witches' Five have been knocked down for the count for now. Does this spell danger for the rest of the world or is this just a temporary glitch for the Witches' Five? Will Jeremiah's plan to take over the world succeed? Let's find out right now...
Since Nick came to join me at the house, a whole lot of coincidences have been happening. I know I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, but with all the crap that happened the other night. I don't know what to think right now. JT and Josh are unsure of whether or not we can trust Nicky or not. I want to trust him, but right now, I'm starting to think that he's some kind of beacon for Jeremiah to track down. Just look at all the crap that's happened and how each time Jeremiah found us where we were. He popped up so easily as though he knew exactly where we were. Another thing was how Nicky was able to sense that we were in danger and that Jeremiah was coming after him. This all might be a big coincidence, but I don't know right now. I'll just give him some more time and see what else happens. I'm just going to sit here with him and try my best to enjoy the movie with him.
"Justin is there something wrong?" Nick asks me, rubbing my hand.
"No baby, there's nothing wrong," I tell him, sighing as I did my best to pay attention to what was going on, on the screen.
"Justin I can feel that you're tensed about something. What's going on baby?" He asks, holding my hand in his. "Since we left your house today, you've hardly said a complete sentence. Did I do something wrong?"
"No baby you didn't do anything," I say, trying to hide my true feelings about that statement.
"Sure Justin, you say I didn't do anything, but your tenseness is saying a whole lot more," he says, releasing my hand. "I thought you loved me Justin."
"I do love you Nicky," I tell him, looking down now, not wanting to look at the hurt look on his face. "It's hard to explain Nicky."
"You're scared of me aren't you? You think that I'm a vampire too don't you?" He asks, looking down now too. "I overheard you talking to your friends. They all think I'm a vampire or some kind of thing that Kevin and Jeremiah can track down. "
"I'm not scared of you Nicky," I tell him, looking up at him. "We talked about you and like we said, there are a whole lot of coincidences that we just can't explain off the top of our heads right now. How are we supposed to protect you when it's you that's bringing the danger right dab to us?"
"I...I don't k-know if t-that's t-the case Justin," he says, stuttering his words. "I assure you, I'm not a vampire."
"What are you then?" I hear from behind me as we both turned around to see Josh standing there with an angry expression on his face and tears in his eyes. "You heard me, what the fuck are you then?"
Josh stood there behind us and right then and there I was actually scared of the look on his face. I've only seen that look on him once and the past and that wasn't a good thing. I don't know what's going on, but whatever it is, it's very bad.
"J-Josh are you alright?" I asked him, wondering what was wrong when all of a sudden I was able to hear his thoughts and feel his pain. "No!"
"Justin what's wrong?" Nick asks me, grabbing my hand as I jumped up out of the seat, disturbing everyone in the movie theater.
"Quiet down," someone a few seats away says as I turn around and hug Josh.
"I'm so sorry Josh," I say as he looked down and then back up at Nick.
"You're bad luck! Because of you, I lost my lover and I will make you pay damnit!" Josh screams. "Gamma!"
"Josh don't," I say, stopping him from using his powers against Nick.
"No Justin, you can't protect him, not anymore," Josh says, pushing me aside and turning back to Nick. "Gamma! Hearts Asunder!"
"What the hell!" A few of the movie patrons screamed out all at the same time.
"Josh don't do it again," I say, getting up off the floor to get to Nicky, but stopped when he got up off the floor by himself and turned around, his eyes glowing a bright red color and his hands glowing with a strange kind of energy.
"Joshua Chasez, you've made a very bad mistake," Nick said, smiling evilly at us.
"Nicky what are you doing?" I ask him, stepping back away from him.
"I'm not your Nicky Justin, I'm Nick Lazar!" He screamed as he projected a beam of energy from his eyes.
"Yeowww!" I screeched, pushing Josh in one direction and moving in another, trying to get out of the way. "I don't like the looks of this one bit. I think we need to get up out of here."
"I think you're right Justin," Josh says, grabbing my hand and the two of us disappeared, leaving Nick or whoever the hell he was back there in the movie theater.
Damn, what the hell happened to me and where the fuck am I? Opening my eyes, I could barely see, but I knew something or someone was on top of me. Trying to move as careful and slowly as I could, I moved from under the person that was lying on top of me and saw that it was none other than Julie. She looks terrible. What the hell happened to her? Rolling her over and trying to get her in an upright position, I noticed the black eye and the bruises on her face. Damn, whoever she fought with got her good. She's hurt badly and I don't know what to do to help her. I gotta see if I can wake her up.
"Julie baby," I say, rubbing the side of her face without the bruise softly. "Come on baby, I need you to wake up for me."
She wasn't moving at all. Looking at her chest, I could see that she was still breathing, but it was like all the lights were on, but no one was at home. Picking her up in my arms, I carried her into the living room and laid her down on the sofa.
"Come on Julie, I need you to wake up for me," I tell her as she started to stir about a bit. "That's it baby, come on."
"A-Alex, wh-what h-happened?" She asked, moving her arm and then wincing in pain. "Owwww!"
"Don't try to move baby," I tell her, as she looked down at her arm and cringed a bit.
"I t-think i-its b-broken," she said, closing her eyes again. "I know to never underestimate Brian again."
"Brian? Brian did this to you?" I asked her as she nods her head. "What the fuck for?"
"He's a vamp now Alex," she says as her eyes opened again and her body started to glow. "He attacked you and then attacked me. I did my best to stop him, but he...he was too strong."
"I can't believe he's actually a vampire," I say as she looked down at her lap.
"I'm sorry Alex, but he is, fangs and all," she says as her eyes start glowing and she stands up. "Owwww! I wish I had Justin's powers of healing."
"I wish you had it too baby," I say as she started floating and she got all quiet. I guess she's trying to find the others.
I never thought I would ever in my lifetime set foot in this place again. This is the home I've had to turn away from of because of this curse I can't seem to get rid of. This place is so cold, cold like the other side of my soul. Walking around, I could actually hear my footsteps. This place is quiet, too quiet for a place that has a child living in it. The way things look; I don't think anyone has been here for a while. I wonder where Leigh and Baylee could be. I came here to see them. I don't care what I have to do, I need to see them, to make sure they are alright. I would like nothing more but to see them, if only from afar.
Walking through the house, I stop and look in each of the rooms, seeing no sign of my wife or child. Where are they right now? They should be here at this time and no where else. I've gone to all the places they could possibly be and they are not there. Where are my wife and child?
"Hello Branson," I hear from behind me. "Why are you here in this place? Looking for the past are we?"
"Nadya are you following me?" I ask the woman as she stepped closer to me.
"In a way I am. I'm looking for the same things you are," she says, smiling at me.
"You're not looking for the same things as me," I tell her, turning away from her. "I'm looking for my family. I have no fucking clue what you're looking for."
Stopping and thinking for a moment, I turn and look back at her. Is it possible? Did she or Jeremiah do something to my wife and child? Please God, I know I'm an unholy creature right now, but my family doesn't deserve to be hurt anymore than I already hurt them being mortal. Please God, please save my family.
"Where are they Nadya?" I ask, walking closer to her.
"Where are who?" She asks, looking at me like she didn't know what I was talking about.
"My family! What did you or Jeremiah do to my family?" I ask, grabbing her by the necklace around her neck and holding her tight. "They should be here and they're not. What have you done to them?"
"I've done nothing to your family. As for Jeremiah, you'd have to take that up with him," she says, smacking me across the face, knocking me to the floor. "Branson I suggest you don't approach me like that again. For your knowledge, if you do it again, I will kill you myself."
"If you want to kill me bitch, do it," I tell her looking down now with tears in my eyes. "I have no reason wanting to live like this. This wasn't my fucking choice to be this thing of darkness."
"I know that child, but it's not what you want, it's what your ancestors did that matters," she says as I look at her funny. "Evil flows through your body. You are what you are."
"What does my ancestors have to do with me being changed into this wretched creature Nadya?" I asked, getting up off the floor now. "No one and I mean no one in my family could've been responsible for this kind of evil. That's just not me or my family. You're wrong Nadya."
"In the past, you were Branson Lark, one of Jeremiah's most powerful vampires. In this time and life, you still are. Because you're a man that believes in God's faith, doesn't mean that it can save you," she says, smiling at me as she started laughing and then disappeared, leaving me standing there wondering where the hell my family was and whether or not Jeremiah had them someplace.
Damn my head is killing me right now. I've had a killer headache for I don't know how long and I wish there was some way to stop it. Since I wake up, I don't know where I am and I for sure don't know what time it is. All I know is that I've tried contacting the others and I've tried using my powers and nothings working like it should. I'm starting to get a little bit scared now. When I woke up, I was expecting to see Joey or some creepo around to cause problems, but I'm totally alone in this room. Wherever this place is, they're not worried about me because everything I try to do, well let's just say it bounces off the wall and back at me or it just fizzles out.
"I can't take this anymore. HELP!" I scream out, hoping that someone...someone good would hear me and come get me. "Come on somebody, anybody HELP!!!!!"
Oh this is great. Where the hell am I? I don't like this one bit. If I was somewhere else and this was happening, I would be totally freaking out right now. I don't like to be lost and I don't like being this unorganized. I need to get out of here, wherever here is.
`Josh, Justin, Jules, anybody can you hear me?' I mentally call out, hoping that someone would hear me calling out. "This is starting to get on my nerves. Alpha! Night's Revenge!"
Just like before, each time I use my powers, whatever I'm doing is reflected back at me or bounces around the room to get me after the ricochet effect is done with. I was scared, but now I'm just pissed. I need to get out of here and kick royal ass. This is all Jeremiah's doing and I need to get to him so I can do what I can to end this once and for all.
"Jeremiah! Jeremiah show your ugly face damnit! This is getting old and boring! If you're big and bad like you say you are, why not show your damn face! Come on, are you and your peeps fucking chicken?" I screamed out, pacing back in forth and the small area, hoping to get whoever is holding me to come out into the open to face me.
That did the trick I think, I see someone walking out of the shadows towards my small room. Viola, it's Joey again. I hope he comes in here so I can beat his narra ass. I'll teach him to get the drop on me literally.
"You need to fucking shut up bitch!" He shouts, walking in front of me.
"And what if I don't?" I ask him, grabbing his hand as he was about to swing at me. "Thanks, I kinda figured you like to hit first and ask questions later. If I wasn't with Josh, I would like a man like you."
"Let me go you bastard!" He shouts, struggling with me.
He was able to come in here, maybe it's a magical enchantment or something that's keeping me in this place. Since it didn't affect him, wonder if I held on to him, will I be protected too and be able to pass through? Let's find out and see. I'm ready to blow this pop stand and get back to my man and my friends.
"It's not going to let you out of here witch!" Joey shouts as I punched him, knocking him up against the wall. I forgot that he was able to listen in on my thoughts earlier. I'm going to have to think of something else to do and quick.
"There's nothing you can do bitch, the master is already on his way here to get you," he says, laughing as I elbowed him in the mouth to shut him up.
"Be quiet and don't speak unless I ask you to," I tell him as he slid down to the floor. "Cool, I should have done that the first time."
"You should have, but it's not going to do you any good Alpha," Jeremiah says, smiling as he came into view. "I've been waiting all week to get my hands on you."
"Sorry guy, but I already got a man," I tell him, smiling too as I stepped back away from him.
"Your jokes aren't going to save you Alpha. You hurt me very badly and now it's time for me to make you pay for that," he says, walking closer to me.
"I think not mister," I say, still smiling at him. "It's not my fault that you're the bad guy and I'm one of the good guys."
"Good or bad doesn't matter around here," he says, grabbing my arm.
"Let go of me freak!" I screamed out as his hand on my skin started to burn. "Owwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"Doesn't that burn Alpha?" He asks, laughing maniacally now. "How does it feel to have your skin burn and catch on fire? How does it feel Alpha?"
"Let me go damnit!" I scream out at him, seeing me in his eyes, noticing that my own eyes were glowing a bright yellow color now.
"What are you going to do Alpha? You're under my control now. I'm going to kill you just like I promised you I would," he says, holding my arm tighter now.
"No! Alpha! Soul Blaze!" I screamed out as Jeremiah's body caught on fire.
What the hell was that? I just used Josh's power command. That's not right, but it worked. Why was I able to do that?
"You stupid bitch! I'll get you for that!" Jeremiah screamed, letting me go finally.
"I'm not stupid nor am I your bitch!" I screamed out, floating into the air to kick him in the face. "Alpha! Night's Annihilation!"
I got to do something to get up out of here. I can't stay here like this fighting him. I don't know if I'll be able to keep him off of me for much longer. What can I do to get out of here? That's it, it's what Joey said a few minutes ago. He said that it won't let me out witch. If I wasn't witch Alpha right now, would it let me out and I can get away? Hmmm, there's only one way to find that out. Concentrating hard as I could, my body stopped glowing and I was back to my natural form. Turning around to look at Jeremiah heading for me, I took off running for the entry way and I passed through. Bingo. I'm outta here. Turning back into Witch Alpha outside in the woods, I teleported away.
Me and Jus have been on the run since I confronted him and Nick at the movies. What the hell did I awaken in Nick Carter when I zapped him with my powers? Since then, he's a totally different person and he's acting more and more like a vampire with each passing moment. I tell you, he's good at using his powers and whatever else he has. He can travel just as fast and we do and I don't think we're going to be able to outrun him tonight. When JT said he was a vampire I didn't agree with him, but now that he's flying like a vampire, turning into fog, changed into a wolf twice, and now has fangs like Jeremiah, I take back all of my earlier arguments with JT today.
"Come on Josh we can't stay here too long, we're sitting ducks out here," Justin says as I felt something familiar but strange heading for us.
"I know, but something's not right," I tell him, turning around to see Nick running towards the two of us in his wolf form. "Gamma! Hearts Asunder!"
Blasting Nick with some fire didn't even work this time. I'm I getting weaker or is he getting stronger? He jumped through my ring of fire and he's still trying to get to us. What are we going to do now?"
"Epsilon!" Justin screamed, holding his hand out in front of Nick. "Baby don't make me do this."
"Justin he's not your Nick anymore," I tell him, grabbing him and jumping into the air.
"No Josh I can get through to him," he says, tears falling from his eyes as we landing a few meters away.
"Jus you can't get through to him. He's evil," I tell him as I felt that feeling from earlier again.
"What was that?" He asks, turning around quickly as Nick appeared behind us.
"I don't know, but we have company!" I screamed, getting knocked down by Nick.
"You're coming with me Justin," Nick says, grabbing Justin by the hand and then floating the two of them into the air.
"Oh no you don't Nick!" I hear behind me as there was a flash of light and JT came running past me and then jumping into the air to grab Justin from Nick. "Justin doesn't belong with you anymore."
"JT baby? Is that really you?" I asked, getting up off the ground as he turned around and looked at me.
"In the flesh baby," he says, turning to look at Justin. "Are you alright?"
"Yeah, where have you been? I thought you were dead," Justin says as I walked over to the two of them and wrapped my arms around JT.
"I felt like I was, but I'm not. I think it's going to take more than being pushed down fifty flights to kill me," he says as he kissed me passionately and without breaking the kiss, held up his hand in the air and deflected Nick's attack.
"You two can make up for lost time later," Justin says, pushing us forward as Nick jumped into the air and landed on the ground as a wolf.
"I'm not scared of him," JT says, stopping and standing in front of me and Justin. "Alpha! Heart Shatter!"
"Hey! That's my power!" Justin screamed as JT's eyes started to glow and Nick flew back against the wall and changed back to his human form.
"It might be your power, but it seems that I can use it," JT says, grabbing my hand and placing a kiss to the palm. "I promised you that I would never leave you."
"I know," I say, looking him in the eyes, a few tears falling from my own. "We need to get away from here, get to Wade and tell him what's going on."
"I've tried that. Wade's not at the house and if he was, I think the Vamp's got him. The house is trashed," he says, turning to look at Nick. "You should have listened to me when I said he was trouble."
"I know baby," I say, looking down. "I'm sorry, I know I should have listened to you, but I was trying to give him the benefit of a doubt."
"Look where that benefit got us Josh," he says, grabbing Justin and we all disappeared.
Damnit, they got away from me! Jeremiah isn't going to be happy about this one bit. He's going to piss a fit when I tell him that Witch Alpha was here to help them. From what Witch Alpha said, they others must have went through the place and taken that wimp Wade prisoner. I'll just go back to the Cave and stay away from Jeremiah. Hopefully that would buy me a little bit of time so that I can find out where those three were headed and go find them. If I capture them and take them all to Jeremiah, he shouldn't be upset.
`You'll never find them Lazar. They are smart and they'll go some place where you guys would never find them.'
We found you didn't we?
`If Nadya hadn't implanted your soul into my body, you wouldn't have been able to do that. I hope they catch you and kill me.'
Do you really think they're going to kill us dear boy? As long as I look like you, your boyfriend Justin is going to do everything in his power to stop them from hurting us.
`You might look like me, but you're not me Lazar!'
You might as well give up Nick Carter, I'm in control of this body and I'm not letting it go. As long as you're trapped in the back of my mind, there's nothing you can do.
`I'll stop you some how Lazar,'
You might stop me Nick Carter, but by then, who will you turn to? Your boyfriend and his friends don't like you anymore. You'll be all alone in the world again.
`Never! Justin loves me and I love him. He'll never abandon me.'
It's too late for that Nick Carter, he already has. Laughing, I turned into fog and drifted away towards the edge of town.
