JUST FOR LOVE
# Chapter 93
I’m FELIA the evil goddess of wishes She growled.
I screamed in fear and started crying.
“Dan..” I cried.
I looked at him and saw he already dropped the bowl too.
“Anel, please don’t think about anything,you know she reads mind” Dan whispered to me and i nodded still shivering in fear.
You’re both wise but not wise enough. You’re plotting to kill me She laughed.
“W..we are are not… please we’re not” Dan and i chorused.
Of course you can’t,not even in your dream
“OMG Dan,her eyes has turn pink” I said with trembling voice.
Those necklaces of yours has the only right to destroy me,any other thing can’t work!! and i won’t make you get those necklaces back cause I’m gonna kill you both right now She said and was about to raise her staff.
“Oh Lord.. please accept my soul” I closed my eyes in prayer knowing there’s nothing we can do to stop her.
She’s so determined this time.
“Dan” I cried,still closing my eyes, waiting for her fireballs to hit me.
Oh..Lord, is she making the biggest fireball?
I held dan’s hand tightly.
I can’t believe I’m gonna die like mum.
“She’s gone!” I heard Dan said.
“Huh!” I asked in disbelief, still closing my eyes.
“She’s gone Anel, open your eyes” He said.
“Huh,are you sure?” I asked.
I started opening my eyes little by little till i opened it completely.
“Where’s she?” I asked.
“At your back” He said and i screamed in fear running into his body.
He started laughing and i wondered why.
“I was only joking” He said laughing harder.
“Ah!” I sighed in relief before hitting him hard on the shoulder.
“Ouch!” He rubbed his shoulder.
“Good for you,you don’t joke with me” I scoffed.
“I thought you were brave” He said and i rolled my eyes at him.
He started laughing again.
“What are you both doing by the lake!” We heard a familiar voice yelled.
We turned and saw Mr Jones with Mrs Claude.
“Aren’t we free to come here?” Dan asked.
“Not without the teachers permission!” He said, looking angry.
“Let’s go Dan” I took his hand but Mr Jones stopped us.
“What are this bowls doing here? Do you both planned on bathing?” He asked.
“Of course no!” Dan said and picked the bowls.
I wonder why Mrs Claude is looking flushed.
Dan and i walked away from the lake and headed to the direction of our cabins.
“Don’t you think there’s something going on between Mrs Claude and Mr Jones?” I asked.
“No,i don’t think there’s anything going on between them. Mrs Claude is married with kids” He said.
“Do you know Mr Jones actually saved us?” He said.
“How?” I asked.
“You know those necklaces are on Mr Jones body,so Felia disappeared the moment he started approaching the lake” He said.
“Geez! you’re perfectly right” I said.
“I can tell Felia isn’t even aware that the lake water can also destroy her” Dan said.
“Of course she’s not” I said and he suddenly bursted into laughter.
“What?” I asked and stopped walking.
“You were looking so brave before Felia appeared and you even boasted that you’re prepared for her but you screamed and cried the moment she appeared,you even dropped your bowl of water” Dan said in laughter.
“You also dropped yours” I said in defence.
“Yeah but i didn’t boast like you” He said, still trying to control his laughter.
“Whatever!” I said and continued walking.
“Com’on Anel, are you pissed?” He said running after me.
“I don’t think we should use the lake water again,let’s just get our necklaces back then we’ll be protected” I said.
We’re seated on Dan’s bed in his cabin,his cabin-mates are all out.
“No,we can’t give up that easily. Even if we get our necklaces back now,it might still get stolen in the future and Felia will definitely come for us. How will we cope then? Let’s just fight this and be done with it so we can live in peace knowing there’s nothing to disturb us anymore” He said.
I let out a deep breath “Don’t you think we should inform our families about this?” I asked.
“No,that’s gonna complicate things more,let’s just face this ourselves, they’ve experienced a lot already,we shouldn’t bother them” Dan said.
“What if..what if Felia ends us killing us” I said.
“She won’t,I’ll make sure she doesn’t. We’re gonna defeat her before she kills us” He said.
“How are we gonna defeat her, we just tried to but it didn’t work” I said in a frustrated tone.
“It should have worked out if we were brave” He said.
“Who would be brave at the sight of Felia,she’s just so terrifying” I said.
“What do you suggest we do?” He asked.
“I don’t know,i don’t just know. I’m fed up” I said.
“Anel,i think we still have to go back to the lake” He said.
“What!” I exclaimed.
“Yeah,we can’t give up easily,we should be very brave this time” He said.
“Fine,so how are we gonna do it,are we gonna use the lake water again?” I asked.
“Of course,I’m very sure we’ll defeat Felia if we try one more time” He said.
“I’m scared” I said and he hugged me closer to his chest.
Don’t be scared baby girl He sang in my ears making me smile.
“We’re in this together okay?” He said and i nodded my head.
“Don’t you think we’re going through a lot” I said, feeling sorry for us.
“Yeah, we’re but everything’s gonna end soon okay?” He said reassuringly.
“Thanks Dan,for being there for me. I would have been in this alone and trust me it wouldn’t have been easy”
“Thanks for being there for me too, without you i would have been long gone” He said.
“It’s nothing,i feel so good anytime I’m with you” I said placing my head on his chest comfortably.
“Really?” He smiled.
I think this is the first endearing word I’ve ever said to him.
“Yeah” I said.
“OMG” He hugged me more tightly.
“Ahh…I’m gonna suffocate to death” I said and he laughed before releasing me from the tight hug.
“Thanks for saying that Anel,it really made me happy” He said.
What if i tell him how much i love him?
I sat up and glanced around his cabin.
It’s not very different from ours.
“We’re gonna carry out our plan tomorrow right?”
“Yeah,after we’re back from adventure” He said.
The door opened and we saw Travis walk in.
I turned back to Dan.
“Hey! You’re not allowed in here,go back to your cabin” Travis said, sounding like a frustrated Camel.
“She’s going nowhere,girls visit you here and I’ve never said a word. You dare not tell her to leave” Dan said, getting pissed.
“Dan, I’ll leave. Truly,I’m not allowed in here” I said standing up.
“We still have to talk Anel” Dan said.
“I know,we will talk tomorrow huh?” I said.
He sighed and glared at Travis.
“Alright,let me see you off to your cabin” He said.
“Okay” I said and watched him stood up.
We both walked out of his cabin and headed straight to mine.
“I don’t want you to fight him okay?” I said and he nodded.
“I won’t,he doesn’t even deserve my attention” He said.
“Good” I said.
“See you tomorrow” I said.
“Won’t you come out tonight?” He asked.
“You want me to?” I asked and he nodded.
“Okay i will” I said.
“Bye” I waved back and opened the door.
I stepped in and closed the door behind me.
“Hi girls” I said before walking to the bed.
“What’s up?” They both asked.
“I’m okay” I said and sat down.
I glanced at jacq’s bed but it’s empty.
I noticed i didn’t even see her during adventure,she’s trying to avoid me.
“Come join us” Theresa said.
They were watching a movie on the laptop.
“Not today,i need to sleep now” I said and laid on my bed.
I dragged my blanket closer.
“Is anything wrong?” Ashlyn asked.
“No” I responded.
“Are you worried about your necklace?” Theresa asked.
“Yeah” I said and they sighed.
I closed my eyes and sighed.
I shoved my hair back from my face and gritted my teeth in cold.
Dan wrapped his hand around me and i felt a little bit warm.
We were on adventure to Zoe-frozen mountain.
We were advised to wear our coats or sweatshirt before leaving our cabin but most of us didn’t.
“Students be very careful of the ice” Mrs Rolland said.
The sight is beautiful and most students didn’t hesitate to take some shots but i couldn’t.
“Sorry” Dan said and i nodded.
“I guess I’ll just have to cover you with my coat now and you must not say no” He said and pulled off his coat.
He offered me his coat earlier but i declined.
I couldn’t say no this time, i allowed him wear it on me.
“Thanks I feel incredibly warm now” I said.
“That’s what i want” He smiled.
“A.. aren’t you feeling cold?” I asked.
“Huh?..I’ll be fine,I’m used to it already” He said.
“Are you sure?”
“Of course” He smiled.
Vie is all over the place, taking pictures.
“Don’t you think we should take pictures?” Dan asked.
“You think so?” I asked.
“Yeah, just for memory” He said.
“Okay, Vie” I called.
“Huh?” She answered.
“We need you to help us take some shot” I said.
“Okay, coming” She said and took few shots before walking to us.
“Thanks” I said and handed my phone to her.
I shifted closer to Dan and we both posed.
Vie started capturing, smiling and telling us how beautiful we look.
I felt happy and didn’t want to stop until i felt Dan shivered.
“Da..” I was saying but got interrupted by a loud thud.
Everyone turned in that direction.
Mr Jones had fallen from the ice filled mountain he was taking pictures.
Everyone laughed hard… Dan and i inclusive.
I walked straight into the bathroom immediately we returned from our adventure.
I peeled off my clothes and ran a warm bath.
I walked out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around my body.
“Wow! You have a nice body” Ashlyn said.
“Thanks” I smiled.
“You’re just perfect,you don’t have bony shoulders like Jacq” Theresa said and we laughed.
“That’s unfair” Ashlyn said laughing harder.
I opened my box and selected the simple dress I’m gonna put on.
“I think i also need to run a warm bath” Theresa said before walking into the bathroom.
“After you” Ashlyn said.
I dried my body and started getting into my clothes.
We all sat, watching a kdrama on Theresa’s laptop after we were done having lunch.
I’m expecting Dan but he isn’t here yet.
We need to go carry out our plan.
“Anel, aren’t you finding the movie interesting?” Theresa asked.
“Ohh..its interesting” I smiled and focused my gaze on the movie but my mind kept drawing back to Dan.
Is he okay?
He didn’t even text me or anything.
I checked my wrist watch.
Woah! I need to go check on him.
I stood up from Theresa’s bed.
“I’ll be right back girls,i need to go check on Dan” I said and they nodded.
“I thought as much,i could tell your mind wasn’t on the movie” Theresa said.
“I’ll be back” I said and quickly walked out of my cabin.
I headed to Dan’s cabin,i gat a feeling something is wrong.
I knocked the door and one of his cabin-mates opened it.
I’m glad it’s not Travis.
“Hi” the guy smiled.
“Hello,is Dan in?” I asked .
“Yeah,im Dave” He said and paved way for me to come in”
I walked in and my gaze fell on Dan’s bed.
I quickly rushed to him when i saw him shivering and looking weak.
“Dan,what’s wrong?” I asked worriedly, crouching beside his bed.
“I’m fine” He said,his teeth clattering together.
I felt his temperature and realised his body is damn cold.
He shouldn’t have given me his coat.
“Why didn’t you call the attention of a teacher when you saw him like this” I said to Dave.
“I wanted to but he told me not to” He said.
“Dan,I’m sorry, I caused this,you gave me your coat” I said close to tears.
“No..no,you didn’t cause anything Anel. I’ll be fine” He said.
“You need to run a warm bath right now so you’re gonna feel warm” I said.
“Please dave can you help me take him to the bathroom while i go get coffee for him?” I asked.
“I’ll be glad to help” He smiled.
“Okay thanks. I’m sorry Dan” I said and pecked his cheeks.
His eyes widened in surprise and he smiled brightly looking more better.
“OMG! A peck made you look this way?” Dave asked and we laughed.
“Hurry and help him with his warm bath before i return” I said to Dave and stood up.
“I’ll be right back okay” I said and quickly walked out of his cabin.
I located the large kitchen and walked inside.
I was rushing back to Dan’s cabin with the hot coffee placed on a saucer.
I felt a hand suddenly pulling me back making the hot coffee collide with my face.
“Ahhh!” I screamed in pain, holding my face with my palms.
My entire face felt like it was on fire.
I shouted in tears and couldn’t open my eyes.
My hair was also pulled and i felt two kicks on my legs.
I was on the floor in seconds.
I cried and felt helpless as i was dragged away with my hair.

JUST FOR LOVE
# Chapter 94
Where could she be?
I’ve had a warm bath minutes ago and I even changed into thick clothes.
She told me she’s gonna go get me coffee but she’s not here yet.
“Are you sure she’s still gonna come?” Dave asked.
He’s the only one i talk to in our cabin,he’s a grade 8 student,very nice and friendly. I always enjoy his company.
“Yeah, something might be delaying her” I said.
“Don’t you think i should go to her cabin and check her there?” He asked.
“I’ll be glad” I said.
“What cabin is she?” He asked.
“Okay,I’ll be right back” He said and walked out of the door.
I sighed worriedly.
I hope she’s okay.
I’m even feeling more cold now that she isn’t with me.
I felt on top of the world when she pecked me earlier and i felt better immediately, i didn’t even bothered to hide my smile.
That will be the first time she will be pecking me.
She told me before now that she feels good whenever she’s with me.
Could it be that she’s starting to like me?
I very much hope so.
The cabin door opened and i saw Dave walked in.
“Did you see her?” I asked.
He shook his head.
“Ah” I sighed, wondering where she might be.
“Maybe i should go check her in the kitchen,she might be waiting for the coffee” I said, standing up from the bed.
“Coffee is always available,she doesn’t have to wait for it but we can’t tell,Just sit down and rest,I’ll go check her in the kitchen” He said.
“Thanks Dave” I said and he nodded.
He walked out of the cabin.
Where could she be?
Is she fine?
I will go search for her myself if Dave doesn’t see her in the kitchen.
I shifted on my bed impatiently.
The cabin door opened and i quickly stood up.
“Did you find her?” I asked and then hissed in disappointment when i saw it was Travis.
He tossed his sweater on the bed before walking into the bathroom.
Why’s he looking that way?
Normally, if i hiss he’s definitely gonna hiss back and utter some abusive words but i guess that isn’t the case today.
The shower started running and i glanced away from the bathroom door,my gaze fell on his blue sweater on the bed.
I’m sure some girls knitted it for him.
I studied it closely and noticed the red liquid at the hem of both hands.
I don’t want to believe it’s blood.
It should be ink,and even if it’s blood,i don’t care if he had hurt himself.
Serves him right.
The cabin door opened and Dave walked in.
“Did you find her?” I asked.
“No,i even had to check some other places” He said.
“OMG!” I panicked before running out of the cabin.
“Dan” He shouted after me.
I headed to her cabin first,she might have returned.
I knocked twice and waited for the door to open.
It did and Theresa stood before me.
“Is Anel in?” I asked.
” No, she told us she’s coming to your cabin and she has not returned since then” She said and my heart skipped a bit in fear.
“Damn!” I dipped my hands into my hair.
“Dave also came to ask about her, didn’t she come to your cabin?” Theresa asked and i saw Ashlyn appear behind her.
“She did but she has not returned since she went to get me coffee” I said, starting to get seriously worried.
“Have you went to check her in the kitchen? She might be waiting for the coffee to brew” Ashlyn said.
“I’ve searched the whole kitchen for her but i didn’t find her” I heard Dave said behind me.
He followed me?
“I will go search for her” I said and started running towards the direction of the lake.
She might be there.
“Dan,wait for me” I heard Dave shout after me.
I didn’t wait,i couldn’t wait,i kept running.
What if something bad has happened to her.
I got to the lake and it was dead silent and empty.
I peered at each angle.
What if Felia had taken her away?
I don’t even think Anel can come here alone.
I don’t think so.
“Have you found her?” I heard Dave asked behind me.
I turned and saw he was with Theresa and Ashlyn,they were both breathing heavily.
“No! She is not here” I said.
“Ahh! Where could she be?” Theresa said worriedly.
“Let’s get out of here” I said before Felia could appear and trap us.
We all ran back to the cabins.
“Have you tried calling her?” Theresa asked, immediately we got to the front of our cabins.
Thats the first thing i should have done.
“I’ve not” I said and fetched my phone from my pocket.
I unlocked it and clicked on her contact, praying she’ll pick up.
“She’s not picking up” I said after calling her number severally.
“Now,I’m getting scared” Ashlyn said.
“She’s fine,she’s probably stuck somewhere” Theresa said to assure everyone but i could read the fear in her eyes also.
“Let’s split up and look for her” Dave suggested.
“Yeah, that’ll be okay” Ashlyn said.
“Ashlyn and i would start searching for her now,you guys do the same too” Theresa said and they both walked away.
“Chill Dan, we’re gonna find her” Dave said patting my shoulder.
“Let’s start our search” He said.
I don’t know why i keep having a bad feeling.
Is she hurt?
Where could she be?
“Have you found her?” Dave and i asked Theresa and Ashlyn.
We’ve both searched everywhere but Anel is nowhere to be found.
“No,have you guys find her?” Ashlyn asked.
“We searched every nooks and crannies but we couldn’t find Asanel. I wonder where she might be” Dave said.
“You know what we’re gonna do now?” Ashlyn asked.
“She might be in any of these cabins so we have to go round the door of each cabin and ask if they’ve seen her or if she’s with them ” Ashlyn said.
“Anel doesn’t have any other friend apart from us” I said and thought of Vie.
She might be with Vie!
“Let’s try what Ashlyn suggested,it might help” Dave said.
“Okay” I shrugged.
“But I’ll have to call Vie first, Anel might be with her” I said and fetched my phone.
I dialed Vie’s number and placed it on my ear.
God please let her be with Vie.
Hi Dan” Vie’s voice broke into my thought.
Hi Vie,is Anel with you?
No” She said and i couldn’t hide my disappointment.
Anel doesn’t come to my cabin. Is anything wrong?” She asked.
Vie, Anel is nowhere to be found. We’ve been searching for her” I said with trembling voice.
OMG!” She exclaimed “I’m coming right away” She said before disconnecting the call.
I sighed “She isn’t with Vie”.
“Gosh!” Theresa sighed in disappointment.
“Ashlyn,let’s do what you said”
“Get the Bleep out of here, Asanel isn’t here!” Karissa yelled before banging the door on my face.
I sighed and glanced at Dave.
“Why is she so mean?” He asked.
“That’s her freaking problem” I said slowly,my anger starting to brew.
“That’s her freaking problem” I yelled and banged the door hard,i was ready to tear it open before Dave stopped me by dragging me back.
“Com’on Dan,you need to calm down” He said.
“Anel might be inside there” I said.
“She might not, let’s go to other cabins” He said and led me away.
My heart was filled with sadness and i tried not to cry. It’s night and we were all seated outside the cabin.
We still haven’t found anel, we’ve searched all over the place for her.
“I hope she’s fine?” Vie said in tears.
“I’m so worried” Ashlyn said, trying to hold her own tears.
Theresa wiped her own tears with the edge of her dress.
Dave wore a sad look and for a moment,no one spoke a word.
The tears i was trying to hold dropped from my eyes.
I feel so guilty.
If she hadn’t tried to get me coffee, she wouldn’t have gone missing.
“Don’t you think,we should report this to the teachers?” Dave asked.
“Asanel isn’t back yet and she isn’t even picking up. I’m worried,she might be hurt” Theresa sniffed.
I stared into space for a long while, thinking about where she might be.
Oh..my Anel,do you want me to die!
I can’t survive without you..
I continued thinking of the possible places she might be and my mind suddenly traced back to Travis.
“OMG!” I exclaimed and quickly stood up.
“What?” They all asked.
I rushed into my cabin and met Travis laying on the bed, with a satisfied smile.
I pulled him up and punched him hard on the face.
“Where’s Anel?” I said gripping his clothe tight.
“Ah!” He growled in pain.
“Dan what are you doing?” Dave asked.
“He knows where Anel is!” I said.
“What!” They exclaimed.
I sat on the floor with my hands tied behind my back inside karissa’s cabin.
Travis actually did that,his girls were not capable.
My whole face and body hurts badly.
I checked my reflection in the mirror placed beside me,there was a small cut on my right cheek and my lower lip is broken,my whole face look so red.
I’m glad the hot coffee didn’t destroy my face.
Karissa and Jacq sat on the bed opposite me,i wonder where the remaining cabin-mates are.
They laughed and continued eating their fries.
I’m not actually surprised about this kidnap.
“I thought you were a great fighter but just look at you, looking so helpless and battered” Karissa laughed.
“You think so,why don’t you loosen my hands and see if i will remain helpless” I said and they both glanced at each other.
Jacq stood up and walked towards me angrily.
I think i should be ready for another slap.
If only i could loosen my hands.
I dodged the first slap but couldn’t dodge the second one.
Her palm landed right on my left cheek, exactly where the cut is, i felt a stinging pain but tried not to show it.
“You’re a freaking bitch! How dare you make Dan like you!” Jacq yelled in my face.
I knew it!
She has feelings for Dan!
“Thanks Jacq for doing this for me” Karissa said.
Doing this for her?
Jacq is doing this for herself and not for anyone else! How could Karissa be so dumb!
“I think i should deal with her myself” Karissa said and stood up.
“I loved Dan before you came into our school and he was starting to love me back but everything stopped the moment you came,he doesn’t wanna be friends with us anymore,you made him hate us!” She cried.
“Really?” I asked.
“Yeah,you freaking bitch!” Jacq said.
“Is that the only thing you know how to say?” I asked her.
She landed another slap across my cheek.
It didn’t hurt this time.
“Okay,first,i need to make this clear to you both. Dan never loved any of you, he only took you both as friends” I said.
“Shut the hell up! He loved me, Jacq said he was starting to love me” Karissa said and i laughed.
“Jacq has been fooling you all this while” I said and Jacq made to hit me again.
“If you touch her! I swear down you’re gonna regret being Jacqueline” I heard Dan’s voice and switched my gaze to the door.
My face brightened in a smile when i saw him standing there holding a swollen faced Travis by the neck.
He pushed him to the floor.
Vie,Theresa and Ashlyn bursted in and descended on Jacq and Karissa immediately.
I smiled widely and watched in satisfaction as they beat the hell out of them.
Vie covered their mouths with clothes to prevent other students from hearing their cries.
“Vie,sit on this fool” Theresa said, pushing Jacq to the floor.
Vie sat on her and continued beating her.
Dave started loosening the rope that was used to tie my hands.
“You’re free” He smiled at me.
“Thanks so much Dave” I smiled back and stood up.
I stretched and then sighed.
I looked at Dan whom i caught staring at me.
He spread out his hands and i grinned happily before running to him.
“I missed you” He whispered into my ears.
“Me too” I said.
“Did they hurt you?” He asked and i shook my head.
“You’re” He said and touched the cut on my cheek and lip with his finger.
I winced in pain.
“Sorry” He kissed my forehead and then looked straight into my eyes.
My heart fluttered and i tried to stop my stupid blush.
“Sorry huh?” He said.
“I’m glad your beautiful face isn’t affected, i will help you apply some antiseptic on the cut on your cheek but my kiss is gonna heal the one on your lip” He said and i laughed.
“Dream on” I hit his shoulder playfully.
We were interrupted by the disturbing cry of jacq and Karissa.
“OMG, Vie you’re gonna break her neck” I gasped when i saw Vie was twisting karissa’s neck.
“I’m prepared to deal with this big nosed bitch today” Vie said and i struggled to hold my laughter.
“OMG! Those girls are real bitches!” Ashlyn said after i finished narrating my ordeal.
We were in my cabin and i just had my dinner,my cheek has been cleaned with antiseptic and my lip..maybe Dan is gonna kiss me after all.
“I can’t believe Travis is among them” Dave said and i immediately glanced at Theresa. Her cheeks do go pink whenever Dave speaks.
Awwwn! Is it what I’m thinking?
“Well I’m glad i dealt with them,they should be nursing their pains now” Vie smiled.
“Don’t you think we should report this to the teachers?” Ashlyn said.
“No, we’re not” Dan said.
He’s seated beside me on the bed.
“Thanks everyone, thanks for coming to my rescue,i really appreciate your help” I said.
Anything for you girl” They chorused.
“I’m feeling sleepy guys” I yawned and laid on the bed.
“I’m not leaving,I’m gonna be staying here with you. Those bitches might decide to come back later in the middle of the night” she said,shifting comfortably on jacq’s bed.
“Me too, I’ll be sharing your bed with you” Dan said and i smiled.
I always feel good whenever I’m close to him.
“Me too,i can’t go back to that cabin. Travis might kill me overnight” Dave said and we laughed.
“You can share Theresa’s bed” Ashlyn said.
“Uh?” Theresa said, widening her eyes.
“Yeah,i will” Dave said and we all watched Theresa’s face go red.
“Hmm!” Dan sighed and we all laughed.
“I’m not boasting! I’m actually prepared for her today” I said to Dan.
We just returned from adventure and we were both at the lake, determined to take down Felia with the bowls of water in our hands.
“I just hope you keep to your words today.” He said and i glared at him.
“She should come fast before my courage disappear” I said.
A short wind blew to announce her presence.
“Dan she’s here” my voice trembled.
“Anel, please try not to drop your bowl of water and try not to look at her face okay?” Dan said and i nodded staring at my feet.
“She’s here” Dan said and my whole body started trembling.
I tried not to raise my head up cause that’s gonna be my only weakness.
I’m Felia,the evil goddess of wishes She growled.
“Anel please don’t look up,she’s looking more terrifying today” Dan said to me.
“Oh..Lord…” I started praying.
I’m not here for much talk,today is your death day and nothing can stop me. I’ve given you both enough chance!! She said with so much anger in her voice.
“OMG, Anel she has raised her staff. Let’s pour the water now” Dan said and i noticed the fear in his voice.
“I’m afraid” I cried,the bowl of water shaking in my hands.
“OMG,she mustn’t raise it.” Dan said.
I slowly raised up my head and saw that she has also raised up her fire emanating staff.
She was looking so fierce today.
“Anel,we can do this!!” Dan said
and i didn’t know the force that pushed me,i didn’t know where i gained the courage from.
I found myself pouring the lake water on her.
She gave out a loud cry which shook the ground terribly beneath our feet,her staff fell off her hands and vanished she kept turning and turning in circle.
She was starting to chant some of her strange words when Dan also poured his bowl of water on her.
Her cry was louder than earlier and we both had to shift back in fear.
She stopped moving and we watched her body burn slowly, puffing out deep black smoke.
I stood in shock..
The lake water is working!
Dan picked his bowl and scooped more water from the lake,he poured it on her body and then hit the bowl on her face.
I should have laughed if not for my shocked state.
I clung to Dan when i saw that her body was starting to vanish.
I screamed and hid my face with Dan’s chest when it was her feet remaining.
I peeped from his clothe and also watched her horrible feet vanish.
There was nothing remaining!
She’s gone forever!
“We did it!” Dan screamed happily.
“Yaaaaay” we both danced round the lake, laughing happily.
“Felia is gone” i screamed loudly in smiles.
“Thank you Lord” Dan shouted.
My joy knew no bound. I can’t believe we did this on our own.
“I’m so proud of us” I said.
“Me too” Dan smiled.
“Now baby girl,let’s go get our necklaces” He shouted carrying me high in his arms.

JUST FOR LOVE
# Chapter 95
“Now baby girl,let’s go get our necklaces” He shouted carrying me high in his arms.
He ran back to our cabin,still holding me in his arms.
I chuckled happily and played with his hair.
“Felia is goneee” I screamed in the air.
“Anel,i can’t believe we did it” Dan laughed.
I closed my eyes and allowed the breeze lift my hair as Dan carried me away.
I was over joyous and i couldn’t stop screaming.
“Lessen your voice Anel, we’ve gotten to your cabin” He said.
“Huh?” I opened my eyes and realized we’re truly in front of my cabin.
I smiled and expected him to drop me but he didn’t.
“Is your hands not hurting?” I asked and he grinned.
“You can drop me now” I said even though i want to remain in his arms forever.
“No,i don’t wanna drop you” He said.
“Oh..my” my mouth widened when i saw that he was grabbing my butt!
He has been grabbing my butt all this while!
“Dan,you’re grabbing my butt!” I screamed.
“Yeah i know” He smiled.
“You can fart in my hands,i won’t mind” He grinned.
“OMG!” My cheeks turned pink in embarrassment.
“Naughty jerk, Let go of me!”
He laughed “I won’t!”
“Com’on Dan! Let go of me and why’s your grip on my butt is getting more tight!”
“You’re the one making me grip it more tight” He said.
I can’t believe I’m letting Dan touch my butt!
My sacred butt!!
I forcefully removed myself from his grip and then dropped to my feet.
“Ahh!” I sighed before hitting his forehead hard.
“Ouch” He frowned.
“How dare you touch my butt! And you didn’t only touched it,you grabbed it!” I said, trying to sound mean.
“I had to grab it so you won’t fall off while i was running” He said still rubbing his forehead with a fake frown.
“You didn’t see any other thing to grab except my butt!” I said,still looking embarrassed.
“Yeah,your legs are too tiny. Your butts were the only thing i could grab” He said trying to stifle his laughter.
“Naughty ass!” I said with a forced frown but ended up laughing,he let out his laughter too.
“Stop laughing..actually its not funny” I rolled my eyes.
“I’m sorry” He said still laughing.
“I can’t believe you..you grabbed my..”
“Hey Asanel” I heard and turned to see Ashlyn.
“Hi Ashlyn” I smiled.
“Where have you both been?” She asked.
“Uhm…the lake” I said.
“Ohh!” She sighed.
“Is Theresa in?” I asked.
“No,we were taking a stroll but i got tired and decided to come back to the cabin” She said.
“I’m tired too,let’s go in” I said and grabbed her hand.
“Bye Dan” She said and we both turned to leave.
“Mind you,they are very soft” Dan shouted after me.
I sighed and stopped walking.
“What is he talking about? Did you gave him anything soft” Ashlyn asked.
“Ahhh!” I growled and turned back.
He was already running off,i blew a deep breath before giving him a hot chase.
I yawned and open my eyes..I guess my nap is over.
I turned in bed,before sitting up.
We didn’t even get to celebrate Felia’s departure properly.
Dan spoilt everything by touching my sacred butt!
“Is Theresa not back yet?” I asked Ashlyn who was busy with her phone.
“She’s with Dave” She whispered to me and i smiled.
“Where?” I asked back in a whisper.
“Outside our cabin” She whispered.
“Let’s go peep” I giggled and we both stoop up and walked to the door.
Ashlyn opened it quietly and we both stuck out our heads.
Theresa was blushing terribly, smiling and nodding at every word Dave said.
Ashlyn and i glanced at each other before bursting into laughter.
Theresa glanced in our direction and we quickly brought in our heads before shutting the door .
We both fell on the floor, laughing hard.
“Theresa is obviously in love with Dave” I said.
“Of course she is” Ashlyn said.
“Seems he like her too” I said.
“He does. I’ve studied him” Ashlyn said.
“It’s so good to be love” Ashlyn said dreamily.
“Are you in love?” I asked.
“No, though I’m crushing on few guys in our class, Dan inclusive” She said and my heart skipped a beat.
She laughed. “Com’on Anel,i was crushing on Dan and i won’t deny it just because you’re my friend but trust me it’s all over now” She said.
“Ah!” I sighed in relief and wondered why i didm
“Dan is the most handsome guy in school and almost all the girls want him” She said.
“Yeah” I nodded.
“So tell me,are you in love?” She asked.
“No” I said.
“You are,stop trying to deny it” She said.
“I’m not” I said.
“Thank goodness,that means I’m free to have him” she smiled.
“What! No,you can’t have him” I said and she started laughing.
“I thought you are not in love?”
“Huh” I said and blew my hair from my face.
“I gat you, you love Dan” She laughed.
Yeah i do!
And i shouldn’t.
The door opened and Theresa walked in, looking more happy than ever,her cheeks glowed and she held her chest while she slowly walked to her bed.
She sat down,still holding her chest, i guess her heart is beating fast.
Ashlyn and i glanced at each other before glancing back at Theresa.
Ashlyn cleared her throat..
“Are you that blinded by love that you didn’t even notice your friends” She said.
“I’m sorry” Theresa smiled.
“You love Dave that much?” i asked.
“Yeah,i do. I love him so much,he has been my crush since grade 6 and he had never noticed me until recently” she said happily.
“Wow,like seriously?” I asked and she nodded.
“OMG!” Ashlyn exclaimed.
“So,what was he telling you?” She asked.
“He was telling me more about himself and i think he likes me too” She screamed happily, jumping on her bed.
“Wow” I smiled.
“I’m glad you’re happy” Ashlyn said.
“Thanks girls” She giggled.
Hey Miss butty,I’m outside your cabin.
“Ah!” I groaned as Dan’s message popped on my screen .
“Girls, I’ll be right back” I said and stood up .
“Going to meet Dan?” Ashlyn asked.
“Yeah” I nodded.
I walked out of my cabin and closed the door.
I twitched my nose when i saw Dan standing, holding a pack of juice and two glass cups.
“Miss butty” He smiled.
“I hope you don’t mind if i smash those glass cups on your head” I said.
“Arrgh! So mean” He pouted.
I grabbed one glass cup and smiled.
“Let’s go celebrate the departure of Felia” I said happily and started running to the direction of the lake.
“Yaaay” He shouted after me.
I stopped running and turned but couldn’t find Dan behind me.
I heard his footsteps just now.
“I’m right here” He said startling the day living out of me.
The glass cup dropped from my hand and shattered into pieces.
“You startled me” I said.
“I’m sorry but i was right beside you” He said.
“I actually thought you were behind me,i didn’t know when you got beside me” I said.
“I’m a fast runner” He grinned.
“Now the glass cup is broken” I said.
“Then, we’ll have to share this one” He winked.
“Those cooks will feel pissed about it” I said.
“I’m gonna pay them for it.. com’on let’s go celebrate” He smiled and started running to the lake.
“Aren’t we gonna pack this?” I asked running after him.
“I can’t believe we defeated her so easily,are you sure she’s really gone?” I asked Dan who was sipping the juice.
We were seated by the edge of the lake,our legs dipped into the cool water.
“Of course she’s gone…we showed her how powerful we are” He smiled proudly.
“Yeah we did” I smiled and collected the glass cup of juice from him.
I emptied the glass cup and dropped the cup.
“You just indirectly kissed me” He said.
“Nah! I think Kisses are not kisses unless lips touch” I said.
“Wow! Where did you learn that from?” He asked.
“I read books you know” I smiled.
“So..should our lips touch?” He asked and my cheeks grew hot.
“Uh..No” I said and could read the disappointment on his face.
“I’m sorry” I said.
“Anel” He called.
“Don’t you like me at all..i mean, don’t you love me? Don’t you have any feelings for me?” He asked and my heart pumped twice.
“I..i don’t have any feeling for you,i don’t love you Dan” I said and felt like hitting myself.
“Oh..fine” He smiled painfully.
The hurt in his eyes was so obvious and i felt so bad that i nearly cried.
He picked the juice and the glass cup and then stood up.
“Dan, where are you going to?” I asked and my heart broke the moment tears dropped from his eyes.
He started walking away..
“Dan” I called but he didn’t respond,he kept walking.
I sighed and stood up.
“Dan” I called, running after him.
“Dan,just wait please” I said, trying to hold my tears.
“Ahh!” I shouted in pain when i felt a sharp object tear my feet.
I tightened my fist, trying to take in the pain.
I should have packed the broken glass cup earlier.
I saw dan turned and running back to me, looking so worried.
He glanced at my feet and then at my face.
“I’m sorry” He said,not sounding like the Dan that was with me minutes ago.
His voice sounded more deep and emotional, his eyes were not bright as they used to be and he was wearing a totally different look.
“It’s fine” I said still trying to hold my tears.
He won’t talk to me again..
“Okay,can you walk with that feet?” He asked.
“Yeah” I said.
“Okay” He said.
I started limping away in tears… normally Dan would have offered to carry me but i guess everything changed already..
Why can’t i tell him that i love him too!
“Anel” He called and i stopped limping,i couldn’t turn.
I quickly wiped my tears when i heard his footsteps.
“Get on my back” He said, crouching in front of me.
“I can walk my…” I was saying but he cut me off by carrying me in his arms, Bridal style.
“Thank you” I muttered, hating the tension between us.
He nodded and started walking.
My gaze was rested on his face all the while and i felt a bit embarrassed when he caught me staring at him.
“Did you cry?” He asked and i shook my head.
He smiled and i felt better immediately.
“I’m sorry Dan” I said.
“For?” He asked..
“You don’t need to apologise for not loving me back..it’s fine,love can’t be forced. I’ve also decided to stop loving you,I’ve decided to erase any sort of feelings i have for you and I’m sorry for loving you” He said and my heart dropped.
My eyes filled with unshed tears and i tried not to make it drop.
He dropped me in front of my door and i didn’t bother saying thanks cause i know I’m gonna burst into tears any minute from now.
I opened the door and limped in,i closed the door behind me and bursted into tears immediately.
“OMG, Anel what’s wrong?” Ashlyn and Theresa rushed to me.
“Dan has stopped loving me” I cried.
I sat on the grass and watched other students play around the golilop garden.
We were on out day 7 adventure.
Dan was sitting beside me but not very close,he hasn’t spoken to me today.
I haven’t been feeling good since yesterday,my heart is broken.
Dan doesn’t love me anymore….
“Are you okay?” I heard him asked and my heart beat in a funny way.
i quickly turned to him.
“I’m fine” I said.
“Okay” He said and continued taking pictures.
Tears filled my eyes once again,i shifted up my knees and rested my head on it.
I started crying silently.
How could i be this weak!
I should be glad he wants to stop loving me.
Was that not what i wanted?
And why am i feeling so down about it.
This adventure should end already!!!
We’ve gotten back to our cabin and i was seated on my bed looking moody.
“Com’on Anel,you need to stop acting this way. I’m sure Dan didn’t mean what he said. Do you want me to help you talk to him” Ashlyn asked and i shook my head.
“I’ll be fine” I said.
The door bursted open and Theresa ran in, panting.
“What’s wrong?” We asked.
“A..Anel, Jacq, Karissa and Travis drugged Mr Jones. They’ve succeeded in collecting the necklaces from him and right now they’re all headed towards the direction of the river. Anel hurry!!” She shouted.
I jumped up from my bed and ran outside the cabin.
I headed first to Dan’s cabin and banged the door.
“Who’s there?” Dave asked, opening the door.
“Dan” I shouted.
“What’s wrong?” Dave asked.
Dan appeared behind him and i noticed how red his eyes were.
Was he crying?
“Dan, jacq,Karissa and Travis are taking our necklaces to the river!” I said breathlessly.
“What!” He exclaimed.
He pushed Dave out of the way and started running to the direction of the river.
I ran after him,not even stopping to catch my breath.
We got to the river and truly we met them standing at the riverbank.
The necklaces are in jacq’s hand.
“OMG!” Dan exclaimed and ran to them.
I also did.
“What are you doing?” He asked as we got to them.
“Give us back our necklaces!” I yelled.
Their faces were still bruised from yesterday’s beating and i felt glad.
“We’re not giving it back!” Karissa said.
“You want your necklaces back right?” Jacq asked.
“Yes” I said.
“Then go get it” She said and threw the necklaces in the middle of the river.
I gasped in shock.
The necklaces didn’t last long on the surface before sinking and whole river turned golden immediately.
W.. we’ve lost our necklaces forever!
“No!!!” I cried and made to hit Jacq but Dan held me back.
“Anel,I’m going to get it” he said and pulled off his shirt.
“I love you Anel and i will never stop loving you” He said before jumping into the river,i watched him swim to the middle of the river.
He turned to look at me for the last time before diving deep into the water.
I stood rooted to the spot when i couldn’t see his body on the surface again.
I love you too Dan! I’ve always loved you” I shouted in tears, hoping he heard me.
Will i ever see him again?
The river is so deep and he didn’t even dared to go deep the last time we were here.
Tears rolled down my cheeks as i stared at the now-golden river.
Dan is deep inside trying to get our necklaces.
I furiously turned to Jacq and grabbed her by her hair.
She shouted in pain, trying to pull my hand away but i didn’t let go,i kept pulling her hair until karissa pulled my hand away.
“You’re all b..” I was saying but Travis suddenly pushed me hard,my feet slowly lifted away from floor and i was on the air in seconds..
I couldn’t gather what was happening until i landed into the river..
Right in the middle..
“No!” I shouted, struggling to get out.
“Please help me, i can’t swim” I coughed out water.
I couldn’t hold on any longer,water was starting to get into my ears and nostrils,my eyes closed itself,blackness covered me and i feel life slowly seeping out of me as i got deeper in the river.
