Total Desolation Part 49

I hit the ground finally and tumbled and rolled, jumping to my feet quickly and running. I didn’t have a destination but I had to think, alone. I ran through the forest, getting deeper until I thought no one would find me. There I finally slowed and slouched against a tree, breathing deeply.
I looked around me, it was peaceful out here, the perfect place to think. Immediately a million thoughts ran through my mind. What was with this black raven that only I could see but it could actually do damage to me that Aagneya could see? What was I going to do as a ruler of the Reapers? How was I going to tell my friends that I was in a relationship with the ruler of evil here in The Black Parade? How was I saving The Black Parade by joining the dark side?
I sighed, I needed to calm down. I sat cross legged on the forest floor, slowing my heart rate and controlling my breathing. Almost immediately I became calm as I started levitating off the ground, floating up towards the sky.
When I opened my eyes I was no longer in the forest. I was high above it but it wasn’t that I had just flew over the trees, no, it was as if I was in a different universe all together. Everything was calm, I knew exactly what I was going to do and how I was going to save The Black Parade, well at least I hoped so. If it didn’t work I don’t think there would be a Black Parade anymore. I would either fix everything, or ruin it all. But either way, I had to try.
I started to see the world as it was again as I floated back down to earth, if you could call it that. Next thing I knew I was walking back towards Aagneya and my mansion.
I spotted Aagneya and he spotted me, he began running towards me. Suddenly he crashed into me, hugging me to him. “Where did you go? Are you okay? What happened back there?”
I smiled. “I just, I guess I just needed to think, alone. I’m okay now.”
He looked at me, judging my honesty, “Okay.” he said, pulling me into a kiss.
We started walking hand in hand back through the forest towards the Reaper mansion. It was quiet with exception to the creatures closer to my own mansion making their regular noises.
“I want us to take action on taking The Black Parade for ourselves as soon as possible.” Aagneya spoke as we walked.
I stopped and turned to look at him. “What’s the plan?”
He looked at me briefly before continuing walking, dropping my hand, leaving me standing there. I watched him walk and ran to catch up quickly.
“We’re going to get the Reapers and we’re going to infiltrate that house, tonight.”
There was a pang in my chest as I thought of what they would do, what would happen to my friends. “How?” I asked, a sick feeling building in my stomach, I hoped I wouldn’t be sick.
“With your help.” He glanced at me, gauging my reaction. “Together with you and the Reapers we should be able to take over and concur them, rule The Black Parade, it will be ours, by tomorrow morning.”
I couldn’t help but feel guilty, I was going to have to help him. Maybe I shouldn’t have even gone into my mansion in the first place, god how I wish I had never died.
The rest of the walk to the Reapers was silent, I didn’t know what to think, I didn’t know what to feel. For the first time in my life I felt useless, there had always been something to do but right then and there I felt useless, I was helping the bad side, hell I was in love with the person trying to kill innocent people!
We arrived back at the Reaper mansion and Aagneya slammed the door open, causing a loud banging to ripple through the place. Then he whistled, loud and sharp, resounding through the air around us.
Soon the Reapers were gathering around us, moaning and groaning with misery.
“Tonight we will capture The Black Parade, it will be ours by tomorrow.” Aagneya’s strong voice rang through the darkness, causing groans of approval from the Reapers.
At that Aagneya turned and we led the Reapers back through the forest, going to my mansion, to destroy it and take over The Black Parade, but not if I could help it.

And there's part 49!
