Fire and Water chapter5

Updated on May 10, 2011

Blake wrapped Ally in a blanket from his car. The night had come and the desert was suddenly cold. The breeze that blew over them made Ally shiver.

 "I am so sorry, Love, I got you into this. You nearly died because of me."

 Ally reached out and touched her fingers to his lips. "Sh-h-h-h-h-h-h-h, it isn't your doing. I knew what I was getting into when we got together. I love you and we will get through this together. You need to tell me a little more about this gift you have. The more I know, the better for me to help you."

 "I will tell you as we drive. I am following the dust trail that Leon is leaveing. I think that the girls are trying to help me. I do not have the power to cause such a wind funnel like I just saw.

 "Can you do other things besides the water trick?"

 "Yes, as an elementalist, I can draw from those near my soul. I don't have the full strength of whom ever I am sharing from but it is enough to make things happen. The dust trail we are following now is not of my doing. It has to be my daughters doing it."

 "Which daughter is doing this?"

"Dee Dee has the gifts of water and wind. Margo is fire and Earth. I don't know where they are but I do know that at least Dee Dee is alive. We also have one other connection, but only if we are close enough to one another. As we near them, I should be able to speak telepathically to them."

 "Blake... I caught a glimpse of Leon as he was "burning" my insides. That is Not the man that abducted me."

 Blake looked at Ally with furled eye-brows. He was trying to process what she had just told him. How was that possible. Leon had never indicated there was ever more than just himself involved.

 "Are you sure, Ally? Think hard, please."

 "I know what my abductor looked like, Sweetheart, and that was not the person I saw. The one that took me was female, of that I am very certain."

 Blake was finding it hard to concentrate on his driving. The car swerved from side to side and nearly hit a Cactus. He shook his head, as if to try and clear his mind. "Female???? That doesn't make sense! He told me he would never waste his energy's on someone because it weakened his gift. I don't understand this!"

 Ally looked at Blake and then to the console between them. She saw a picture laying on the top. She slowly picked it up and looked at it. Tears began to flow from her eyes.

 "Blake, who is this young woman?"

 Blake glanced over at the picture Ally held. "It is Megan, shortly after we met. Why do you ask?"

"Blake, this is the woman that took me!!!!"

Blake slammed on the brakes and the car slid to a full stop. He studied Ally's face and looked into her eyes. He could see she had no doubts that she believed what she had just told him.

 "That can't be, Ally. Megan is dead! I saw her body. The police are searching for me because they believe I murdered her! You know all of this! Damn it Ally, Are you sure..."

 "Blake, she told me when she took me that it was not her choice to kill me. She said it was the only way to protect you and the girls!"

 "Why didn't you tell me this before?"

 "Before what?!?!?!?!?!? I haven't seen you since I was dumped here in the desert."

 "I am sorry, Ally, I just can't get a grip on this one. Why would Megan, if she were in fact alive, take our girls from me? Why would she want you dead?"

 "Did you hear what I said? She was trying to protect you and your daughters. I can't explain how she could be alive, but I do know. She left me out here to die."

 A breeze blew across the desert sand. It seemed to be gathering strength as the sand approached the car. Blake tried to get his window up but the sand was faster. The car was quickly filling with the desert. Tiny specks of blood began to ooze from Blake and Ally's faces. Ally cried out in pain as Blake leaned over her to protect her. Finally getting the window closed, he looked out the windshield. A voice seemed to come from the very  sand he was covered with.

 "Do not stop, Father. We need you to save us. You must follow the bad man. We are tired and weakening. I don't know how much longer I can talk with you.'

 As they watched out the windshield, the sand began to take form. Blake sobbed and pounded the windshield as the image of Dee Dee appeared before them.

 "Oh My God," is all Ally could say.

 Blake started the car and pushed the gas pedal to the floor. Sand spewed out from under the tires. "I am coming, baby girls! Daddy is going to save you!"

As the car sped towards Leon, he heard Dee Dee once more. His eyes filled with tears and his body shook as she spoke.

 "Hurry Daddy, please... I think Margo is dieing." The voice was soft and weak.
