Visit From A Ghost Essay

1812 words - 8 pages

Armor and I had long landed and were walking towards a town.

"Armor? Can I ask you a question?"

"Sure," Armor looked at me and smiled. "What is it?"

"What happened to Shield's husband?" It had been on my mind since earlier, I felt as if I couldn't wait any longer. It was a large mystery to me, honestly.

Armor stopped in his tracks and looked down. "Do you really want to know?" He whispered.

I nodded. "I want to know what happened, I want to understand why he's not here anymore."

_"Here, he won't explain it right. Let me show you," a laugh._

I only remember Armor staring at me with wide eyes as I went down.

*Armor's POV*

"Hero?!" I fell to my knees in order to catch her in time before her head hit the ground.

"Hero?!" I shouted as I put my hand underneath her chin, tilting her head so I could see it from many angles. Her eyes were shut and her breath was still. "Hero?" I mumbled as I stared at her with wide eyes.

Had Hero just died?

I couldn't think, much less talk.

I shook her. "Hero! Wake up!"

But Hero didn't move.

I sat still and lowered her head gently to the ground. Had the Crystal killed her?

I stared at my hand as I let it transform. The last time I had been a dragon and Hero touched me, hadn't she glowed?

I hovered my hand over her.

The Crystal was now in between her ribs. But I noticed something odd about it. As I got closer, I could see _and_ feel that the Crystal was throbbing, beating like a heart.

This was strange.

I watched as it beat, holding an interesting rhythm of its own.

*Hero's POV*

It was strange. I was watching people move around me, but I recognized none of them. "Hello?" I called out, trying to catch their attention.

They all ignored me.

"Or'here!"

I looked behind me, seeing a man with his arms crossed.

He was a tall man with brown hair that was pulled back with a black band. His eyes seemed brown as well. He walked to me then extended his hand. "I'm Isodore. Pleasure to meet you," He smiled.

"Hero," I shook his hand then stopped. "How are you talking with me? You are dead."

Isodore laughed. "That's hilarious, Bellanima."

"Who?"

Isodore stopped laughing and stared at me."Your name. Your name is Bellanima. Surely, you remember that."

"My name is Hero, I'm afraid I have no idea who you're talking about," I explained.

"Hmm," Isodore examined me then shook his head. "I have to get you back to Armor soon. He might be having a fit," He laughed again. "I've got to show you what I promised!" With a motion of his hand, my vision was led to the people surrounding us.

"That looks like Shield!" I smiled as I pointed to the girl with the brown hair in a braid.

"That's because it is," Isodore smiled, seeming in a daze as he stared at Shield.

"Let's get closer!" Isodore grinned as he grabbed my arm.

Suddenly, we were right there beside Shield.

"How did you do that?" I gasped.

"I'm a ghost. I can do anything!" He laughed again.

I reached out to touch Shield, but my hand went straight through...
