The Wizard - Chapter Forty Six

"We need to move her body to Dimitri's lab. If they can do anything we should have her there and ready," he explains. "I can't imagine what they can do for her now. She has been dead for some time but her body is still warm. Ok, can you carry her on your own?"  Jen asks. "You never know about anything. Lets just say in my family history strange things have happened and I have seen a lot of things. Can you get the doors for me," he replies as he heads over to the bed. 

In one swift motion he scoops up Emily's lifeless body. I can see the grief all over his face when her arms fall and her head dangles. He carries her gently making sure he doesn't hit any part of her body on anything as we make our way down to the main floor. 

We make it down stairs and Jen clears a table off for Emily's body. Daniel places her on the table and Jen positions her. She straightens her out and crosses her hands over her chest. 

Daniel pulls a chair up and sets down while he waits on his brother. He knows it wont be much longer before he gets there. Dread fills him as he knows he will see his brother fall apart. All he can do is hope he does not loose his mind from grief. 

The door opens and in comes Chris, a strange man and Dimitri bringing up the end. Daniel catches eye on their faces and you can tell they are upset. The only one that appears to have no emotions is the strange guy. His appearance looked as if he was a cursed one. One of the originals like the queens family. Chris looks as though he's been crying but he has no tears now and Dimitri looks crushed.  

Chris looks at Jen who has been crying the whole time as the streaks of tears stain her cheeks. "Jen, are you ok?" he whispers. She looks up but seems so far away in her expression. He can tell it has taken a tole on her. She slowly nods her head but she still looks lost. 

Dimitri slowly makes his way to Emily's side. His body is stiff and rigid as he tries to control his emotions. The tears are already running down his cheeks and he just stares. He stops beside the table and when everyone thinks hes going to rip her off the table into his arms, he stands there silently as the tears continue down his face. 

Chris joins Dimitri but by the time he reaches his side Dimitri is broken. Dimitri's silence breaks free and he is screaming. No one can make out what he's saying. He rambles on and goes to grab Emily. Chris grabs his arm and Dimitri stops. 

Suddenly Dimitri collapses to the ground and cries. He screams and then cries out. Chris backs away and can only watch his best friend's soul break. Chris looks mortified and lost at the same time. He wants to help his best friend but is helpless in what to do. There is nothing he can do but stand and watch. He knows he needs to get it out or he will loose his mind. No one else approaches but stands waiting for Dimitri to gain himself. 

"Get him out, I have work to do," a voice breaks through the commotion. It's the voice of Nolan the wizard they brought back with them. Chris makes his way over to Dimitri and drops down beside him. 

"Dimitri, we got to let him do his thing. Come on," Chris says as he pulls Dimitri up from the floor. 

"We were to late. She's gone," he cries out as Chris and Daniel pull him away. 

"Don't give up yet," Chris says as they keep pulling Dimitri toward the door. "Yes we are, we are to late. She's dead. He can't bring back the dead," he chokes out between the sobs. 

They get Dimitri upstairs into the living room. Dimitri walks over to the fireplace and just drops down and cries. Chris and Daniel join him so they can be there for him. They sit in silence as they hope for the best. 

Daniel wants to take the pain away from his brother but he can't. He had never found love like Dimitri and Emily had and all they wanted was to be happy and be together, but every time they tried it seemed like some force was ripping them apart. Now with everything that they had been through was it the end. 

Chris was trying to run all the scenarios through his head on what to do if the situation turned bad. Would he have to restrain Dimitri, could he even with the help of Daniel and the others. If Dimitri truly felt that it was over they all knew he would lose it. 

Dimitri just sobbed. His mind was blank and his soul was empty. He held a little hope that Nolan could do something but he wasn't ready to face the fact that she was gone. Really gone. He wanted to run to her to feel her body against his to feel her heart beat against his chest but he knew if he had touched her that it would have confirmed his worst fears. He would feel her cold body in his thoughts for the rest of his life. All he could do was wait and try not to lose it. 

After the door shuts Nolan steps up beside Emily. He has his wand and he sprinkles the dust across Emily's body. 

He begins to chant in a language that can not be understood.

Green light comes out of his wand and circles Emily's body. He keeps on chanting. 

The light gets brighter as his chants fill the room. 

A small explosion ignites above Emily's body. "Strange," he says but keeps on going. 

Tiny colors of light rise from Emily's body but no signs of life are there. He keeps chanting.

Then a light, a small light comes to life. It starts over her body and keeps on growing in size. Nolan keeps chanting and his hands are trembling. Sweat begins to run down his face. He keeps on as the ball of light keeps on growing. 

It get's bigger................

And bigger....................
