It had been just shy of a month since Jonah had began running, all's he wanted to do was run and never stop, he wanted to be alone, didn't want anyone in his life anymore, anyways, just shy of a month for Jonah and from the moment he left the camp gates he began getting plagued by creatures, not just any creatures either, shadow creatures, his sword was particularly useless against these creatures so he could never defend himself from them, in every fight he managed to get himself into he took more and more damage, he knew that sooner or later the damage would become too much and he would finally be finished, in the fight where he thought his life was over something miraculous, well miraculous in Jonah's eye's anyway, happened, just as the shadow creature was about to deal the finishing strike Jonah closed his eye's and made a silent prayer, he prayed for help and help is what he got, the strike Jonah was expecting never came and when he opened his eye's he saw a guy a little older than himself kneeling infront of him, sword in one hand and what looked to be a pouch in the other Mysterious stranger:- "That was close, you need to be more careful when facing creatures like that, very hard to beat and very few weapons have the ability to stop them" Jonah:- "Yeah i already know that, still got to ask who you are" Mysterious stranger:- "Who am i, well that depends on who you want me to be, friend or foe, i'll let you choose" Jonah:- "Not what i meant but still, i guess right now i'd choose friend" Mysterious stranger:- "Friend i am then until you decide otherwise" Jonah:- "Okay well i guess thanks for saving me, might aswell ask your name now" Mysterious stranger:- "My name, well my name is La.ahem my name is Dylan" Jonah was a little sceptical but passed off the mistake as a slip of the tongue, he was too worn to worry about little mistakes like that in his present state Jonah:- "Dylan, okay well it's nice to meet you i guess, im Jonah, well thanks for helping me but you know, i best be going, got a lot of travelling left to do" Dylan:- "Looks to me like you have already done a lot of travelling, maybe you should spend some time here, rest for a while" Jonah:- "I can't, i have to keep going, need to keep running" Dylan:- "Running, don't look to me like you could do much of that in your state" Jonah:- "I'll be fine, done well so far, i can carry on, i will never quit" Dylan:- "If you say so, maybe i should tag along with you then, help you if you get in another fight" Jonah:- "Hmm, i'm sorry but i'll decline that, i just want to be alone, best when i'm alone" Dylan looked for a way to make Jonah change his mind but couldn't find a single one, he knew Jonah wouldn't last another day by himself and he couldn't have him dying until his plan was fulfilled Dylan:- "Okay if that's what you believe then i guess i will be going, take care of yourself Jonah" With that he just seemed to dissapear, like the shadows had just swallowed him, now if Jonah was beaten down too much to see anything wrong with what had just happened, he knew he wouldn't be safe for long so decided to pick himself up and carry on going, it was only a couple of hours before Jonah found himself in trouble again, as he was walking through a little clearing in the forest a shadow creature appeared from knowhere and slashed across his chest with what seemed to be very sharp talons, Jonah didn't know these things even had talons, claws or anything like that, that was news to him but now wasn't the time to reel on this new fact, the slash across his chest was just one of many attacks, they were lightning fast and just seemed to appear from knowhere, he was been beaten badly and it was probably only a matter of seconds before he was killed, luckily though before the thing managed to attack again a figure appeared infront of him, drew a sword and sliced the creature in two Dylan:- "What did i say, i told you to take care and this is what i find you doing only mere hours after been attacked you get attacked again, you seriously need to learn to defend yourself" Jonah:- "I would defend myself if i knew what i was facing and i had a sword that afected these stupid things, this gold weapon does nothing to them" Dylan:- "Gold, pah that stupid metal is useless, now this is a weapon with real power" Dylan held out his sword and for the first time Jonah finally got a good luck at the weapon that seemed to effect these shadow creatures, the sword was about as dark as midnight yet at the same time looked so familiar, it almost looked as if it was formed from the shadows themselves Jonah:- "What is that, i've never seen anything like it, it looks like it's been forged from shadows" Dylan:- "That's because it has been forged from shadows my dear Jonah" For the first time Jonah was finally starting to think clearly, the voice sounded so familiar, the shadow sword, the way this guy could melt into shadows as if he were.it finally dawned on him, the guy who had saved him, the one who had killed two shadow creatures Jonah:- "Lance." Lance:- "Ahh you figured me out, it's a little late" Before Jonah had a chance to say or do anything he was grabbed by the throat and lifted off the ground, the last thing he remembered before he blacked out was been launched high into the air then slamming down hard onto solid ground, he awoke a few hours later but he didn't feel himself, he felt different Lance:- "Ahh you're awake, guess the fun can begin now" Jonah:- "What, why can't i move, what have you done to me you creep" Lance:- "Ahh my dear boy i've shall we say, hmm, i've made you more like me" Jonah managed to look down, he still looked like himself, a different outfit but still more or less himself, he had on all black, black boots, jeans and t-shirt with what seemed to be a hooded cape, he had a dark sword strapped to his side which he instantly recognised as the shadow sword Lance used Jonah:- "Where are you, what have you done to me" Lance:- "Where am i, well im sort of everywhere, what have i done, oh that's simple, i've taken over your body and i will slowly take over your mind till you're my slave" Jonah:- "I will never be your slave" Now even Jonah could tell that was a lie, as the seconds ticked by he could feel himself losing control of his body and mind, it was as if someone else was inside him tying to take over bit by bit and they were succeding, Jonah didn't have any clue how he could fight back and he knew sooner or later he would lose the battle going on inside himself Lance:- "Ahh Jonah i can feel you giving up, don't worry i won't completely take over, you will have full control of your actions, you will just be open to a few suggestions shall we say, if i say it you do it" Jonah:- "Never." He never finished his sentence as it became too late, he felt himself completely slip away, he could feel he was in control of his body but not his mind, it was as if he was in control but at the same time been controlled, it was as if he was a real life puppet, could do things on his own free will but at a moments notice someone could pull the strings and control him Lance:- "Ahh see that was so simple, now how about we take you for a test drive, if you remember i used to rule the shadow world but since i lost to that blasted lucifer the whole place is out of control, the creatures are running free and attacking anything and everything in sight" Jonah:- "I.I.remember" Jonah was a little shocked at his words, he sounded like himself but also felt as if his words were been monitored, if he tryed to say something out of place he would be cut off Lance:- "Good now me and you, well mostly you, were going to take a trip to the shadow world, get that blasted place in order, kill all who oppose me there" Jonah:- "And why did you need me to do this, why take over me to do such a measly task that im sure you could of done without me" Lance:- "Oh i don't need you for that, i have much bigger plans for you, once in my world i can leave your body, train you, teach you to obey me, control you" Jonah:- "If, no not if, when, when you leave my body you know i will kill you" Lance:- "Ahh my dear boy we both know that in my world i can't be killed, in my world i am unstoppable, you will soon learn that if you do not obey" Jonah:- "I will never obey you, i would rather die than do that" Lance:- "Well will see my dear boy now come, we have to get going" Before Jonah had a chance to protest, not that it would of done much good, a portal opened up right infront of them, with the help of Lance Jonah walked straight into the portal and was transported to the shadow world, upon arrival Lance did as he said he would and left Jonah's body, before Jonah had a chance to do anything though Lance touched his head and Jonah collapsed, he awoke pretty quickly only to find one thing wrong, he had no memories.
Jonah spent the next two weeks in the shadow world training, Lance of course had erased Jonah's memories and filled his head with fake one's, all to do with him been the best fighter, a servant to Lance himself, after the two weeks were up Lance decided Jonah was ready and decided to send him back to his own world to do his bidding Lance:- "My dear boy, your training is complete and i now believe it is time, im sending you to the real world where you have two missions, the first is, destroy that miserable camp you once belonged to, the second, i'll give you that once you prove your worth and destroy that miserable camp" Jonah:- "Yes my lord, i will not let you down" Lance:- "I should hope not" With that Lance opened up a portal to the real world, Jonah stepped into it without hesitation and was soon back in the real world where he belonged, Lance had made sure he opened the portal just outside the camp as not to raise the alarm too early, he was in a forest just outside the camp, Jonah didn't hesitate once and was heading towards the camp the instant he left the portal, within a few minutes he entered the camp gates and raised the alarm pretty quickly, dressed in his black outfit with hooded cloak and shadow sword he was instantly mistaken for an enemy, the alarm caused most of the camp to rush to the gates where Jonah stood, all brandishing weapons and shields, it took a few moments for most of the campers to realise who the enemy was, once they figured out it was Jonah most dropped their weapons which was a big mistake, seeing most campers leaving themselves undefended Jonah took the advantage and attacked, he attacked with such ferocity that most campers were attacked before they even had a chance to acknowledge what was happening, the few that did realise were too slow and were easy targets for Jonah, after watching a few campers fall to Jonah's blade pretty much all the rest of them decided to play it smart and backed away, one camper however did not back down Celeste:- "Jonah, what are you doing, these are your friends, why are you attacking them" Jonah just staredat her, the face, she was important, why was she so important to him, he couldn't remember, it was as if the memory was there but was been blocked Jonah:- "You, why don't you back down, why don't you run away" Celeste:- "Simple, i know you will never hurt me" Big mistake, Celeste had no clue how wrong she was, Jonah was ordered to attack and that is what he would do, he had no choice, if he didn't then he Lance would force him to Jonah:- "You know nothing you foolish girl, back down now or prepare to die" Celeste:- "Jonah, you will not hurt me" Wrong again, Jonah charged towards her with blinding speed, he knocked her down in the blink of an eye and prepared to finish her off with one strike, he raised the sword and brought it down but stopped at the last second Jonah:- "I.I.can't kill you, why can't i kill you." Celeste:- "Because you know me, you won't hurt me, you wouldn't ever do that to me" Jonah:- "I was trained to kill, you are just another thing in my way, you must die." Celeste could hear the uncertainty in his voice, she could tell he recognised her and was struggling with whatever was going on inside him Celeste:- "Jonah, look at me, remember me." Jonah stared straight at her, he was trying to remember her, the face was so familiar, the voice Jonah:- "Celeste." Celeste:- "Jonah." Jonah was remembering, his memorys were fuzzy, this girl celeste, why did he remember her, why couldn't he hurt her, he was struggling with himself, with one last look at Celeste he tryed to remember to no avail, he only remembered one thing, he remembered he wanted to run, within the blink of an eye he did just that, he turned and began running out the gate, he managed to make it quite a distance before a major pain took over his all body and he felt like blacking out Lance:- "You failed me Jonah, looks like i will have to do this myself" Lance took control of Jonah's body, he was getting ready to go destroy the camp when he heard a familiar voice coming from behind him, Celeste had followed him Celeste:- "Jonah." Jonah/Lance:- "Foolish girl, Jonah is no more" Before Celeste had any time to comprehend what Jonah had just said he raised his sword and swung at her, she managed to dodge, she dived to one side as Jonah swung straight at the place she was standing Celeste:- "Jonah, why." Jonah/Lance:- "I told you you foolish girl, Jonah is no more, i posses his body" Celeste:- "What do you mean, of course you're Jonah" Jonah/Lance:- "I may look like Jonah but you foolish girl, i am Lance, the shadow king" Celeste:- "No, No." She had a feeling that the words she heard were the truth but she didn't want to believe it, she knew Jonah would never work for Lance, her thought's were cut short as Jonah swung at her again catching her in the ribs causing quite a nice size gash, seeing as she had no choice she drew her dagger and decided it was time to fight back, she knew she was outmatched from the moment she got in close and tryed to stab Jonah, he countered her attack with ease and managed to knock her away with his blade, the battle carried on with both Celeste and Jonah landing hit after hit, of course Jonah was doing serious damage to Celeste while she managed to land the odd lucky strike on him, she knew she was wearing thin when Jonah managed to knock her down and she struggled to get back up, she knew she had one chance and with one final attack she charged at Jonah, she managed to dodge his first strike and land a quick jab with the dagger, she barely pierced the skin when she felt a sharp pain coming from her stomach, looking down she saw what was wrong, Jonah had managed to pierce her with his sword, she instantly collapsed, she let out a cry of incredible pain which seemed to be enough to bring Jonah half round, he saw Celeste laying there and began fighting with himself for control, all his anger and pain managed to help him overpower Lance and re take control of his own body, realising what he had done he rushed over and kneeled down next to Celeste Jonah:- "Celeste i.i.i'm." Celeste:- "Jonah it isn't your fault, what you did wasn't you, i know you wouldn't of done it if it wasn't for Lance, he contolled you, turned you into something you're not" Jonah:- "But." Celeste:- "No but's mister, i know you, you would never hurt me intentionally but now just remember this, in the end you get to be the hero, you have to finish this, finish of lance, protect the camp and protect yourself" Jonah:- "But you.I.I." Celeste:- "I know Jonah and it's too late to do anything, i want you to do one thing for me though, Jonah i want you to be the hero, finish what i guess i started and kill Lance, kind of glad i didn't kill him cause it would of meant killing you, anyways, Jonah i want you to protect the camp, show Lance that what he did was unforgivable, show him that trying to use you to destroy something you love can never be done, show him you are not some puppet, show him that in the end you will always prevail over evil like him, i want you to promise me you will" Jonah:- "Celeste." Celeste:- "Jonah promise me you will finish this, please, do this for me" Jonah:- "I.I.promise" Celeste:- "Thankyou, now i want you to remember something very important, Jonah i love you, you made me the happiest person alive even when we were fighting, the time we spent together was the best moments of my life" Jonah:- "Celeste." Celeste:- "I know Jonah, can i ask one last favour, can you tell me that you love me one last time, it would make this whole thing worthwhile" Jonah:- "I love you celeste, i promise you that no matter what happens now i will not let your death be in vain, i want you to remember something" Celeste:- "And what might that be" Jonah:- "That even in death i will be with you, i will find you and i will save you, i will destroy the earth, the shadow world and even the underworld just to get you back" Celeste:- "No you won't mister, it's my time, i'm ready to die because i was killed trying to save you, now you have to let me go, i am ready" Jonah:- "I.I can't, i won't" Celeste:- "Yes you will jonah, if you truly love me you will let me go, it's my time, dying in battle is an honourable death, please remember that" Jonah:- "But.i love you, i can't lose you like this, not now, not after everything that has happened, i never even got to tell you i am sorry for how i acted back at camp, i never got to apologise for breaking up with you" Celeste:- "Jonah i forgive you, i always have done and i always will, remember that and remember that none of this was your fault" Jonah:- "Celeste." Celeste:- "Jonah, i want you to listen to me, it wasn't your fault, it was Lance's and to make things right you have to do what is needed, finish what was started, for me" Jonah:- "I.I.will, for you i will finish this, i will kill lance or die trying" Celeste:- "Not your time to die mister, kill lance and be the hero, only a hero may die" Jonah:- "I was never the hero though, you was" Celeste:- "Jonah.come here" Jonah shuffled closer to celeste, she layed one hand one his face and pulled him to her for a kiss, it was nothing special but to Jonah it seemed like the world had just stopped, the kiss was perfect, he had closed his eye's and let time pass by as he and Celeste shared one last moment of true love, as he opened his eye's he caught a glimpse of a smile from Celeste as she slowly closed her eye's, too late did he realise they would never open again, she had used her last breath to give one last kiss to the guy she truly loved, Jonah just sat there holding Celeste in his arm's, she had thought him and he had killed her just so she could save him, she had forgiven him for everything he had done then she used her last breath to kiss him one last time, he had lost her and it was all his fault, no not his.LANCE's Jonah:- "LANCE!, i will find you, i will kill you, i will make you suffer for what you did" Lance:- "You want me then you will have to come and find me" His voice seemed to be coming from everywhere, Jonah had no clue where he was or how he was going to find him, all's he knew is that when he did then there would be no mercy, Jonah would make sure he suffered, Jonah would give all he had just to make Lance suffer a pain worse than he had just suffered, a broken heart, watching the one person you love more than anything die, knowing the culprit was still alive watching him, knowing Lance had used him and got him to kill Celeste, Jonah would tear the world apart to get the thing he so badly seeked, REVENGE Jonah:- "I will find you, i will tear this world apart to find you if i have to, when i do you better be ready cause there will be no mercy" Lance:- "I will be ready Jonah, don't you worry about that, you need to remember one thing though, whatever you do to me will not change the fact that you killed your precious little Celeste" Before Jonah had the chance to respond Lance appeared infront of him in shadow form, Jonah knew that in his shadow form nothing he did would affect him in the slightest, he had to try though, he picked up his sword and swung at Lance, the sword just passed harmlessely through him as if he wasn't there, which in retrospect he really wasn't, he was just a shadow, the shadow sword would of usually worked on him but since Lance had created it he had made sure it could never harm him in the slightest Lance:- "Now now, we both know that won't hurt me but this will hurt you" Before Jonah had a chance to figure out what he meant a wall of shadowy energy lifted him off the ground, flung him up high then seemed to grab him and slam him back down right next to Celeste's body Lance:- "That was only a taste of what is to come Jonah, i will go for now but i will be back very soon to finish this, i would suggest in the meantime disposing of that perfetic girl's body" Before Jonah had the chance to respond or even pick himself up off the ground Lance dissapeared leaving Jonah alone with Celeste's body once more, it took little less than one hour for Jonah to pick himself up and carry Celeste's body back to camp, the first sight of Jonah had all the camp running to greet him until they saw the body in his arms, most campers stopped dead in their tracks while others fell to their knees in disbelief, Jonah carried her all the way to the infirmary where he layed her down on the bed he last used then turned and walked away, the doctor had seen everything and rushed to Celeste's side as soon as Jonah left, the doctor tried everything he could to bring her back to no avail, she was gone and now he knew he had to inform the camp, it was easier than he had thought as most campers were waiting just outside the infirmary for the news, as he stepped out the door he could feel all their eye's focused intently on him Doctor:- "I am sorry to tell you all that our dear Celeste has passed away, her injuries were too severe and as far as i am aware she was dead before she even made it to the camp, i am deeply sorry for the loss of this one fine camper" A few campers stared on in disbelief, seeing Jonah carry her in and straight to the infirmary had put a little hope back in them but now they had to deal with the fact that she was gone, Jonah was in the crowd and could feel a few campers staring at him for the answers to how this could of happened Jonah:- "It was me, i killed her." A few campers just stared at him in major disbelief, Jonah had just told the whole camp he had killed Celeste, it didn't sit too well with most campers as they soon turned on him with weapons drawn, a few advanced but never once did Jonah draw his weapon to defend himself, he was ready to die, one camper took a little swing at him to make sure Jonah wouldn't defend and was very surprised to see that Jonah didn't even flinch when the blade sliced through the air just infront of him Jonah:- "Want to kill me then do it, i want to die, don't you understand, i killed her, she is dead all because of me" That got the effect Jonah had desired more campers began swinging there swords, daggers and even a couple of spears at jonah but all seemed to be missing him, even the few that were close enough to turn him into a Jonah shishkebab seemed to deflect away from him at the last second as if some invisible force was protecting him, nobody could comprehend the situation infront of them, all the confusion caused enough of a distraction for a shadowy figure to appear behind Jonah unnoticed, it wasn't until the figure took human form and sent half the camp flying backwards with some invisible force before he got noticed by everyone, even Jonah turned around just in time to have a sword shoved under his chin, most campers decided to do the smartest thing at this point and backed away but a few brave, could be classed as stupid, campers advanced on the person with weapons drawn and were instantly sent flying by what seemed to be a giant shadowy fist Lance:- "Now now Jonah, i thought you wanted to kill me, can't have you dying now can we, it's my job to kill you not some perfetic little pipsqueeks" Jonah:- "I will kill you for what you did, you used me, you controlled me with some weird force and used me to kill the last good thing i had in this world, i swear right here, right now that me and you are going to finish this, i will kill you for what you did" There were a few murmors from the campers, a moment ago they had wanted to kill Jonah because they had been told he had killed Celeste, now they were learning that this guy used Jonah and got him to kill Celeste, yes in retrospect Jonah did kill Celeste but not by his own free will, now instead of wanting to kill Jonah they wanted to help him instead, they all wanted revenge for what this Lance guy had done, in one swift motion all campers got into formation as if they had been doing it all their life and advanced towards Lance, weapons drawn and looking for blood Lance:- "Oh my look at this, all these perfetic little pipsqueeks, they all seem to think they can kill me, what a joke" With one little flick of his wrist every single camper in the formation was forced back by and invisible force, a few tried to advance again but found a shadowy wall had blocked their path, seeing how Lance was a little distracted Jonah took the advantage and drew his sword, in one swift motion he managed to step back from Lance's sword and drove his own straight through Lance's stomach, seen as Lance had chosen to be in human form the attack did the desired effect and sent Lance staggering backwards trying to pull the sword from himself, in an instant the sword was pulled out and the wound began healing, he began to advance on Jonah with blinding speed and seeing Jonah unarmed brought his sword down towards his head, somehow Jonah had seen the attack coming and rolled aside just in time, he managed to get up just as Lance was preparing for another strike, unluckily for Jonah he wasn't quick enough to dodge the next attack and it caught him square in the ribs, the strike left a nasty cut where it had hit and left Jonah in severe pain, he didn't fall to his knee's though, instead his just put the pain aside and ran straight at Lance, no weapon, no clue what he was doing he jumped and ended up dropkicking Lance straight in the chest, Lance staggered a little bit giving Jonah enough time to prepare for another attack only this time Lance saw it coming and sent Jonah flying with a flick of the wrist, Jonah landed hard on the ground but stood shakily back up Lance:- "How do you keep fighting, what have you got left, i have taken it all, what is the point in fighting anymore, just accept defeat and let me kill you" Jonah:- "Never, i made a promise, i promised i would finish this once and for all and that means i have to beat you no matter what, i don't care how bad thing's seem right this instant, in the blink of an eye this whole battle can change" Lance didn't have time to ponder over what Jonah meant as he had began charging towards him with incredible speed, before Lance could even ready his weapon to defend himself Jonah had flung himself towards Lance with incredible power, he managed to connect with a right hook that knocked Lance to the ground and caused him to drop his weapon in the doing so, seeing an opportunity arise Jonah quickly grabbed the sword and brought it down straight the Lance's heart, well atleast where the heart should be, with blinding speed, Lance let out a quick cry of protest but had it cut short as he seemed to melt straight into the ground, all seemed silent for what seemed like an eternity before an eruption of cheers brought Jonah back to his senses, a flock of campers surrounded Jonah and began congratulating him for what he did, a few raised Jonah on there shoulders and carried him round the camp as if he was some sort of hero, after a quick victory lap around the camp the campers dropped Jonah off at the infirmary to have his wounds tended to, just shy of an hour later Jonah was all fixed up and was heading back to his cabin when his path was blocked by none other than Aditi Aditi:- "Jonah i would like to thank you for what you did, although we lost a great camper in Celeste you managed to protect this camp" Jonah:- "I didn't do what i did to protect the camp, my reasons were revenge and a promise i made" Aditi:- "I know that Jonah, i knew your reasons would be your own, but i still owe you a great deal of gratitude for what you did" Jonah:- "Well it is a thanks but no thanks, i don't want any thankyou's, i just want to move on and forget everything that has happened" Aditi:- "That is your choice Jonah but it will have to wait, we have a special feast set up in the dining pavilion where we would all like to congratulate you for what you did and then say goodbye to Celeste" Jonah:- "I'll pass at that, i'm leaving as soon as possible, i have to go find my own path in life now, this camp is no longer where i belong" Before Aditi had a chance to protest a figure began melting out of the ground, both Jonah and Aditi knew it could only be a threat and prepared for attack, both seemingly assumed it was Lance coming back for more but were surprised when a hooded figure appeared infront of them unarmed and not wanting to fight Jonah:- "Who or what are you" The figure looked up and Jonah got a clear look at the figures face, it was pale and nearly see through, if you looked hard enough you could see the figures skull underneath his transparent skin Hooded figure:- "Ahh where are my manners young Jonah, i am atromitos" Jonah:- "Should that name ring a bell" Aditi:- "I know you, you serve Lucifer" Atromitos:- "That is correct, i am Lucifers right hand man, i deal with all the things he doesn't have time for like dealing with you, Lucifer has ordered me to grant you one favour for bringing and end to Lance once and for all, as soon as you killed him he appeared in the underworld where he has been sent to the fields of punishment for eternity, anyway's that's not important, what is improtant is the reason i am here, Lucifer has ordered me to give you one rule free, hmm shall we call it a personal favour, now this favour is rule free with one exception, the people who have died may not be brought back" Jonah:- "Fine but i ask for two things, both small and both simple to do, the first is that lucifer shall leave this camp alone for eternity, he will never send any creature to attack it and he will never bother anyone in this camp again" Atromitos:- "Sounds like a simple enough deal, now what was the second request you had" Jonah:- "I want Celeste and myself when i die to both earn elysium, she belongs there and i believe after everything i deserve it, now do we have a deal" Before Atromitos could make the deal a voice echoed from all around them, it was a deep voice that Jonah knew all too well Jonah:- "Lucifer." Before he could finish his sentence Lucifer appeared infront of them Lucifer:- "Ahh Jonah i thought i would come here and personally accept both your terms for a minor one of my own" Jonah:- "And what might that be" Lucifer:- "You join the underworlds army, when you die of course, you may have elysium but will fight any battle i send you to fight, can't have your talents going to waste now can we" Jonah:- "Fine, sure, whatever, aslong as both me and Celeste earn elysium i will join your army" Lucifer:- "Wise choice my young boy, now i accept your terms, this camp will be left alone, you and Celeste earn elyisum, now i must be going, come Atromitos, so much to do" With that both Atromitos and Lucifer dissapeared in a swirl of fire and smoke leaving Jonah and Aditi alone, Jonah gave Aditi one last look then headed towards the dining pavilion ignoring everything Aditi was saying, upon reaching his destination Jonah was mobbed by campers galore, they were all congratulating him and thanking him for what he did but he was barely paying any attention, Jonah had one last thing he had to do and he wanted all the camp to hear him out, he walked up to the podium and looked out over the crowd of campers Jonah:- "As i stand here on this dark day i want to turn all of your attentions to one minor detail, the main rule this camp has, the one that says *Campers may not kill other campers, any found guilty of murdering a fellow camper will be executed immeadietly*" A few campers looked around the crowd trying to understand what Jonah was getting at to no avail, they were all confused, why had he brought that rule up, no camper had killed any other camper Jonah:- "Now i know most of you are confused by what i am saying but." Aditi:- "You killed Celeste, although you was under some kind of control but still, Celeste died by your hands" Jonah:- "Correct, i killed Celeste and in doing so i broke the biggest rule the camp has" A few campers started murmoring among themselves, a few tryed to argue that Jonah didn't do it as he was been controlled but Aditi sensed what Jonah wanted and decided to give it to him Aditi:- "Silence, Jonah you have broken the main rule and now you must be executed" Jonah:- "Thankyou, now i know most of you are wondering why i would do this, well it's simple, i want to be with Celeste now, i have nothing left in this world, i was told not long back that only a hero may die, do you not all see me as a hero" A few mumblings from around the crowd were broken when one camper started chanting *Hero, Hero*, soon the whole camp joined in and began chanting that Jonah was infact a hero Jonah:- "Thankyou, now i believe that i broke a rule and a punishment is due" Aditi:- "I believe you did and i infact believe there is a severe punishment for what you did" Aditi approached the podium and gave Jonah one last smile, he almost brought his sword down on Jonah before he was stopped Jonah:- "Wait, i have one last thing i would like to say, to the whole camp i would like to send my deepest gratitude, i am thankful for everything you have done for me and i am also thankful that you even tried to help me in the end, i wish each and everyone of you the best and i hope one day you all become heroes, just remember now that i want this, don't cry for me when im gone be happy, party and never forget me" There were plenty of tears coming from the crowd followed by a massive round of applause, the whole camp began chanting again as Jonah layed down and closed his eye's Jonah:- "Goodbye my friends, goodbye world" Those were his last words, Aditi brought his sword down and pierced Jonah straight through the heart making it an instant kill with minimum pain, the whole camp watched on as the sword pierced him and most broke down as they watched him die, only a few looked up when Aditi approached the podium Aditi:- "On this dark day we say goodbye to two of the greatest campers to ever walk through those gates, Jonah and Celeste we now say goodbye to you, we hope that the afterlife treats you well and you two may be together in peace atlast, goodbye and goodluck" The whole camp took up a chant again, this time it was a little different, all the camp began chanting *Jonah, Celeste* repeatedly, the chant seemed to go on forever until Aditi raised his hand for silence Aditi:- "Let us burn the body's of Jonah and Celeste, take them to their cabin and burn them both together, let them both rest in peace" A few campers rushed over to the place Jonah was laying and gently lifted him up, they carried him to the cabin he used to call his home and layed him down on his bed, while a few campers were setting up the cabin ready to be burned a few others had rushed to the infirmary to collect the body of Celeste, they brought her to the cabin and layed her on the bed next to Jonah, all campers left the cabin and closed the door, as soon as they were at a clear distance Aditi lit the cabin and together all the campers watched it burn away.
In the years that passed the camp gained and lost campers, any who died in the camp always managed to earn a spot in elysium due to Jonah always making sure Lucifer sent them there, most chose to be returned to the world to begin a new life but the odd one chose to stay in elysium with their old friends Jonah and Celeste for a short time atleast, the camp carried on like normal but never once was attacked, okay a few little creatures managed to attack the camp but never did any serious damage, a few minor injuries, a few minor damages to buildings but nothing that couldn't be repaired, the cabin where Jonah and Celeste had stayed never got rebuilt as it was a shrine to the two heroes, on the same day every year camper's would crowd round the shrine and remember there two fallen heroes but would carry on with life like normal afterwards, all seemed pretty good for the camp and the campers.
Now as for Jonah and Celeste, they both managed to meet up in elysium, of course Celeste gave Jonah and earfull for choosing death but in the end she accepted what he did and was grateful to have him with her for eternity, she did worry whenever Lucifer called him up for a battle but was always glad when he returned safely, in elysium they managed to live, well spend the rest of their lives together quite happily, a few arguments occured between them and they occasionaly broke up but managed to patch things up and move on quite quickly, their after life seemed perfect for them, they had each other and occasionaly they gained an old friend to spend a little time with before they moved on, all seemed perfect.
