Part 13


navy = flashback

Everything went black. I knew that I was dead, it didn't hurt at all, it was a calming feeling. I heard him call my name, I wanted to answer but I couldn't. After a flash of white I could see him. He was hugging me the other me. The one that was created.

"Xellos please let me stay for a little while. I just want to see that he'll be all right."

"Hmm...ok you can stay until you are buried. You can't do anything other then watch."

"I understand. Thank you Xellos, fore everything." She moved to put a hand on his cheek but stopped just inches from it.

"I guess...that my had is just going to go trough you right?" The trickster priest just nodded and then disappeared.

"I wish I could have stayed with you Zel. But I made a promise and I had to keep it."

"I have a suggestion."

"I'm listening."

"If you help me get a body in this world and let me stay for two years, then you can kill me. I won't tell a soul about it. And when I'm gone you.." She swallowed hard "you can feast of Zel's emotions." Xellos was quiet fore several minutes.

"You'll get one year and if you tell Zel ore anyone ells about it you'll die."

"One's better then nothing I guess. You want something more, don't you?"

"Yes, but that's a secret for now."

"I hate it when you do that. Well let's go back before Zel gets suspicious."

What am I going to do without you Zel? I'll try to come back...I'll try. Kim floated down beside herself. She felt odd to se herself lying there. Her other self, her new dead self. I can't understand why he hated his apereanc so mush. I could live looking like that. If I only lived... she gazed down at her dead body and then quickly looked away. Zel was coming towards her. He cast levitation and mowed the body away from the road. My beloved Zel. I wish I could talk to you, be with you...I wish I had never come here. She floated to him and sat down beside him. She mowed one hand up to his face and moved it along his jaw line.

Zel felt something cool along his jaw. He looked to the side in a reflex but there was nothing there. Why did you do this Kim? Why did you die? He leaned his head into his hands, his human hands.

"What good is it to be human if you are not here to enjoy it with me?" Tear's was rolling down his cheeks.

"Why did you leave me..."

I'm so sorry Zel. I want to be with you but I can't, not now anyway. I want to feel your skin, your hair. I want to feel your lips on mine... I want to be with you, I really do.

Meanwhile In the Saillune castle

"We must send an invitation to Kim and Zelgadis. The wedding is just two weeks away." The princess was weary excited, she was getting married and she hoped all of her friends could be there.

"I'm weary glad fore you Amelia. Have you heard anything from them sins we left that Inn?" Lina asked and looked at the excited princess.

"In the beginning I got some letters from Kim, but it's been a while sins she wrote."

"I don't think you will receive any more letters from Kim, dear Amelia. And I don't think she'll be able to come to your wedding ether." The two girls rose from the table they were sitting at, and spun around.

"Xellos, what are you doing here? And what are you talking about?"

"Not even a hello, I'm hurt Lina." He barley dodged the vase that was coming at his direction.

"Miss Lina please stop. Mr. Xellos what are you talking about?"

"Oh, yes I was asked by Zel to come her to inform you about a special thing."

"Zel asked you? Why would he ask you to do anything, and how often do you do anything that someone ask you to do?"

"Well that is a secret. Now to the message, I was sent here to inform you that Kim is deed." There was complete silence in the room.

"What? When? How?" Lina finally managed to ask. Amelia just stared at the trickster priest.

"That you can ask Zel when you get the chance. Bye fore now my dear friends." Then he disappeared.

"This must be one of his can't be trough." Lina was walking around the room and stopped when she saw the princess face.

"Why wold he lie Lina?" Especially about something like that? We got to go and find him.

"Where do you suggest we start looking Amelia. He can be anywere."

"I.. I don't know. I suppose we can start at the last address of the inn on the last letter I got from Kim. It was there I was going to send the invitation.."

"You are weird Amelia. Give me the address, me and Gourry will go and look for Zel. You have a wedding to plan... and I would guess this is one of Xellos bad jokes."

"You really think so?"

"Com'on give me the address so I can go look fore them." Amelia forced a smile and went to a drawer and picked up a peace of paper. And handed it to Lina.

"Thank you. See you in a couple of days Amelia." Lina walked out the door and went to her and Gourry's room. I hope it's just one of Xellos bad jokes...

"Hey, Gourry we need to go on a little trip." Gourry looked up from the snack he was eating.

"Were are we going?"

"We are going to find Zel and Kim..." she went quiet. Drifting of into thoughts. But soon recovered.

"Don't just sit there, get your stuff together we are going today." Gourry just looked at Lina.

"Who are we going to look fore?"
