Total Desolation Part 50

We stood at the edge of the forest, looking at the mansion, Aagneya hushing the Reapers so they would stay quiet.
“Now then.” Aagneya said, dragging me back to reality, I couldn’t think straight. “You’re going to go in again,” He motioned toward the darkened mansion, they must have been asleep, or laying low knowing all hell was about to break loose. “but this time you’re going to work your powers and destroy the purple force field. If we kill the place of their almighty chosen one they won’t have any hope left,” He glanced at me, making sure I was paying attention. “and if they don’t have any hope left they won’t bother resisting, giving us total control.”
My mind was racing, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do but I knew I had to do something. I couldn’t let that happen but I also knew that if I hid in there he would be waiting for me. I really had no choice, I had to take down the force field, but hopefully I could warn the others and we could at least take down Aagneya, he was the only real one that was a problem, the Reapers were just following orders and if they had no leader they would go A-wall but at least The Black Parade would be able to fight them off, I just had to take Aagneya down. Easier said than done.
I realized Aagneya was staring at me, waiting for my response then, he had been preparing the Reapers for battle and now he was waiting on me to start the whole show. I gave him a slight nod and turned to go, leaving the groaning Reapers behind and sneaking up to my mansion.
I let out the breath I had been holding as I found myself halfway through the purple mist, I wasn’t quite sure that I was still good when I had started. What with all the planning of taking over The Black Parade and cheating on my boyfriend. Then I actually realized it, I had been cheating on my boyfriend, I had completely forgotten about Raven. My mind raced, I had cheated on my boyfriend! I was doing the very things that I had sworn never to do as a younger teen! I was a terrible person! God how I wished I couldn’t make it through the purple mist, I wished it would just shock the living fuck outta me and kill me off. I didn’t deserve this second life.
I found myself at the back door of the mansion and slowly opened the door, putting on a show for Aagneya. Why was I doing this? I should just run back to the forest and hide there for all eternity. Even if the Reapers found me so what! I deserved to have my soul sucked out of me! I didn’t deserve any of the things I had had in life. I wasn’t good enough a person to have them and I certainly didn’t deserve this second life! And to be the chosen one of The Black Parade! No! I just wanted it over. But then I realized something else. If I didn’t do this all of my friends who did deserve this second chance would die too. And the people of The Black Parade and they didn’t deserve this, I might have, but they didn’t.
I quietly walked through the mansion to the foyer and called everyones names, hoping they were awake, hoping they were planning an attack.
I heard the door before I saw it, the library door creaked open and Midnight stuck her head out to look at me. Then she waved me over.
“What’s the situation?” She asked as she closed the door behind her.
“I’m to be working on taking the force field off right now, they’re waiting on me and then they’re going to attack, destroy this place, make everyone lose hope.” As I finished my brief and to the point summary Midnight had opened the door leading to the second library, the one containing everything of my life. When I saw in I gasped, everyone was there. My entire group from life, Waterfall Bomb, Death Raven, Gory Torture, Bloody Fang, V, Lithium Sorrows, Shooting Star, Atomic Revenge, Flash Drive, Daydream Teenager, and then Midnight Madness and I, Acidic Venom.
When I saw all eyes were on me I smiled, they had been planning, and they were ready. My smile spread to everyone and soon we were all grinning like idiots, this time we were going to do this the right way, as a group, but I wasn’t going to let any of them near Aagneya, he was mine. I would be the one to end him. It was me or nothing. I was the chosen one and I would end this, whether I died or not but they would continue in peace.
I turned and left then, fighting back the tears in my eyes, I couldn’t cry, not now. No one followed me, no one said anything, they knew better, there hadn’t even been a word spoken between any of us but I knew we all had the same feelings, but I wasn’t going to bring up old memories or have a speech about this, the truth was I was responsible for their deaths and I was once again putting those very lives on the line again but this time I wouldn’t let them die.
I walked to the middle of the foyer and sat down, beginning to call on my powers that Aagneya had given me. Soon I could feel the purple haze receding back towards the mansion and I the moans of the Reapers coming got louder.
I stood up when I felt that the purple haze had been lifted and brought back to me, somehow it seemed as the the purple haze had been my energy, protecting this place when I was both dead and alive, protecting the things I cared for, or would care for.
I walked back to the library to see everyone one last time before all hell broke loose. I looked at each one of them in turn, lingering long enough to see the determination on their faces.
Then, without saying a word, I turned and walked back out of the library, toward the back door when I had entered, hearing the silent footfalls behind me as I led our little mismatched group to battle.

And there's part 50!
