I wrote a regular para and hated it with all my heart and idek why.
All Brian could see was black, he was standing in a dark room, he didn’t know what was going on and he couldn’t see anything. It was almost like he was in a dream, then he heard a voice, a voice yelling his name. “No Brian wake up! Wake up!” said The voice.
He didn’t know what to do, so he just closed his eyes. He could hear the voice louder and louder now. He opened his eyes to find Margo right in front of his face. He was a bit startled. He let out a deep breath and looked around. He was back to normal, and he was alive.
” I thought i was a goner for sure! What did you do Margo? you saved me!” He said giving her a hug from a sitting position.
“Now tell me, what did Helios make me do to you? I swear i’ll kill him, i could have hurt you badly!” He said grabbing one of Margo’s hand with both of his.
Margo looked at Brian, his eyes still closed. “Brian.” She said once more. She was about to put his head back down when his eyes opened again. “Brian!” She grinned, hugging him back again. “I just- I just gave you some of my tears.” She smiled, after pulling away from the hug. “I thought you were lost for good.” She added with a weak smile.
“No, you didn’t do anything. Everything is alright.” She smiled letting her hands out of his grasp and standing back up. “We should head back to our dorms.” She said, walking up the stairs with Brian and parting ways once they reached the top. “Oh, and make sure to stay in the school boarders, it’s safe here.” She added before leaving to her dorm.
” No i did hurt you, I know I did. I’m so sorry about all the mean things I said.” He stood up and gave her another hug, rubbing her head in the process. Then he remembered he still had the earpiece on. He realized this because he heard a voice speak into it. The voice seemed familiar, then it hit him. It was helios speaking into the earpiece. Though it sounded like the sentence wasn’t directed towards brian, it was a conversation between helios and someone else.
” He’s useless, take care of him” Was the last thing he heard, then instantly he began to feel a sharp pain in his ear, he quickly backed away from Margo a good 5 feet. He didn’t know what happened next but suddenly he was being shocked by what felt like a thousand bolts of electricity all throughout his body! He feel to his knees and once again he was screaming but this time, the pain was worse!
“Stay back!” Was all he managed to yell out to Margo, he then fell, his back towards the floor with no response. It seemed as if those electric bolts were meant to kill Brian.
She returned his hug. “It’s fine, Brian, it wasn’t you.” As she hugged Brian, she could hear some muttering, as if something or someone was talking through an ear piece. She turned her head over and saw something in Brian’s ear. Before she could comment about it, Margo stumbled backwards and landed on her butt. Brian had pushed her back fro some reason.
She stood back up only to see him on the ground being electrocuted by something. “Brian!” She shouted, looking over at him lying on the ground. She was about to take a step forward when she heard him tell her to stay back. Once the electric shocks stopped, she ran over to Brian and gave him a light shake. “Brian!” She repeated. “No, no, Brian!” His pulse was growing weaker and weaker by the second. She took the earpiece that was in his ear and threw it out to the ground. Her eyes began watering, she really didn’t want to cry right now. Stupid tears. She through, angry at herself. Wait, tears! She moved her head to hover over his face and she let a few tears drop into his mouth. She just hopped that her tears would work.
Once Margo started mentioning all these memories they shared, he began to have a headache. He could feel Brian coming back to the surface, but New brian would not allow this. Brian dropped the ice blade and it landed with a loud clatter on the floor. He could feel all these memories pouring back into his head. He remembered meeting her, the dance, the way they sang, how she convinced him to join the glee club, how because of her he wasn’t afraid to sing in-front of crowds. He felt like he was having a battle inside of his head. Brian feel to his knees and began yelling. This was more than just a headache! He remembered exactly what happened this summer. He remembered the attack, and the bright room with the big lights, and this contraption the placed on his head, and he remembered the pain he felt while being brainwashed. ” Get out of my head!” He yelled to the brianwashed version of himself.
Both his hands were placed on his head, and he felt like ripping out his hair, he couldn’t get this voice out of his head! until finally brian yelled,
” I am not your slave and i don’t work for you!” It was like the voice completely disapeared. Brian was back.
he saw the blade on the floor, and he saw Margo up against the wall, he felt so disgusted in himself. ” Margo i’m so sorry..” He choked out. ” Did i hurt you?” he asked worried.
Margo didn’t know what to do as Brian started yelling to himself. She was quite confused to what was happening but by the sounds of his shouts, she could only assume that Brain was coming back. She wanted to walk over to him and see if he was alright, but she couldn’t help but think that physical contact would only make the situation worse. So, she stayed where she was as she watched Brian in pain.
She shook her head and walked over to Brian, giving him a tight hug. “No, no, you didn’t hurt me. There’s nothing to apologize for.” She smiled, just glad Brian was back to normal. “Everything is fine.” She said with a nod. “I’m just glad you’re back.” She let go of Brian and greeted him with the smile she had on from the beginning of the hug.
“You think you’re so funny don’t you?” He asked squinting his eyes. He smile angered him even more than he already was. Why was she so stubborn!? Why didn’t she just defend herself. This was stupid, so New Brian decided to finally forging his ice blade.
Without giving Margo time to react New Brian charged forward to her, and pinned her against the wall with his blade against her neck. “you know i can kill you in a matter of seconds without hesitation, but according to Helios i have to bring you back alive, but if it wasn’t for i swear you’d be in pieces by now.” He said with a mean look on his face.
” Now tell me after all these things i just told you, why aren’t you fighting back!?” He asked still in the same position.
“No, I don’t think I’m funny at all.” She frowned from his assumption. She let out a harsh breath after being pushed onto the wall. She could feel the sharpness of the blade when she gulped. The ice was sharp. This would be the only time she would actually thank Helios for something. Apparently, if it wasn’t for him, Brian would’ve slit her throat by now.
As a last attempt to have the old Brian she knew come back. “Brian, try remembering the past. Remember when we first met and I didn’t know the time? Or at the Valentine’s Day Dance when we danced together? We looked ridiculous but we didn’t care.” She tried not smiling while reminiscing of all the fun times they had together. “And remember when you took us to the hills and we sang Animal by Neon Trees together? Then, somehow I convinced you to join Glee Club?” She asked, just rambling about all the past events they had together. “And Ezme, when all three of us went to Paris together? Please, just remember all the times we shared. Please.”
” Don’t make this boring!” He yelled at her walking towards her. She needed to stop being so weak.
“Get up and fight” He said yanking her arm from the floor and bringing her to her feet. But when he lifted her, her face was relatively close to his, that’s when he felt his cheek beggining to burn up, and he could feel himself blushing. He quickly pushed her away and backed away. He turned his head to the side and spoke.
“What is this? why am I blushing? What are you doing to me?” he spoke in disgust. He couldn’t have these emotions of a weakling. She was obviously doing something to him New brian just didn’t know what yet.Could this be Brian reaching the surface once again.
She fave him a false smile and sat on the ground. “I’m not going to fight you.” She said it once again, crossing her arms and acting like a child. After a minute or two, she uncrossed her arms and kept her eyes locked on Brian’s. Then, she felt something carry her up and she on her feet once more facing Brian. Unfortunately, the pull was strong and unexpected so she was close to his face.
Before Brian could try anything, she took a few steps back and got ready for an attack. “Wh-What? I’m not doing anything, and I don’t know why you’re blushing.” Margo said, just now noticing his blush. She was confused but she made sure not to show it on her features. Then, again, he could be easily reading her mind right now, already knowing her confusion.
