Saving Elizabeth... Part 3

Updated on July 12, 2011

It was nearing dark, where-ever they were. Elizabeth had no idea why she and Sarah were connected, but she knew that she would need her to live. Four young girls had gone into a tent directly across from the one she and Sarah shared. The screams were nearly deafening but there was a worse sound than the screams. The sound of total silence that followed after the screams scared Elizabeth more than any screaming. She watched as another girl was being led to the tent.

"Cover your ears, Sarah! Do it as fast as you can!"

Sarah was a tiny girl for her age. She didn't look to have the stamina that Elizabeth did. Her long golden hair looked like a nest made by some forest animal. Her blue eyes looked empty and far away. Elizabeth wondered if Sarah had found a hiding place in her mind. Somewhere safe from all that was happening in front of them. She took Sarah's hands in her own and cupped them over Sarah's ears as tightly as she could. Sarah made no effort to stop her.

The screams began and Elizabeth closed her eyes tight as she pressed her hands tighter to Sarah's. She could see the horror in Sarah's eyes and she knew that her hands could not keep out all of the sounds. She pulled Sarah to her and whispered in her ear.

"It will be alright, Sarah. The sounds will be over soon. Please stay with me here. I need you to come back from where ever it is you are. I can't do this alone."

Tears streamed down Elizabeth's face as she rocked Sarah back and forth in her arms. She heard Sarah begin to whisper to her.

"They are killing her, Lizzy. We can not live with out our gifts. Don't they know we need our gifts to live!? Why are they doing this to us?"

Sarah's soft crying tore at Elizabeth's very soul. She had no answers for Sarah.The only thing she knew for certain was that one day, it would be her's and Sarah's turn in the tent. She felt a surge of energy fill her being. She could see Sarah's father now. He was in front of them, looking at her. How was this possible? She reached out to touch him. As she did, her whole body was engulfed in electricity. Her body shook and was pushed away from Sarah. Sarah turned to look at where Elizabeth had been tossed. As she looked up, she saw him.

"Daddy? Oh, my God... Daddy, you are here." She reached out to touch him just as Elizabeth screamed out.

"Don't touch him, Sarah. Don't touch your daddy!!!"


The pain had totally ripped through David's body. He had seen the nurses running from the room. He had heard Mark calling to them to come back. He watched as Mark pushed the needle in to his arm and heard his words.

"Dear Lord, forgive me. I have no idea what or why I am doing this. I just know I must. I will only leave you this way for 3 minutes, David. At the end of that time I am bringing you back. Do what you have to, but do it quickly."

David felt the life leaving his body. A second later, he was looking down at it, as it lay life-less on the table. As suddenly as he saw his body, he was looking into the eyes of Elizabeth and Sarah. He tried to pull back when Elizabeth touched him. He was not fast enough. Her body was tossed across the tent, just as his had been, every time he was shocked. He backed up as Sarah reached for him.

"Listen to her, Sarah. Do not touch me. I don't know what will happen to you."

"I need your strength, Daddy. I am dieing here. Please, take my hand so I can live."

He saw the tears in Sarah's eyes. David knew his little girl was not doing well. Somehow, the draining of the other girls was having an effect on her. It wasn't harming Elizabeth in any way. He moved towards Sarah. His hand reached out to her. He closed his eyes as their fingers touched. David expected to be tossed across the tent. Instead, he felt as if they had been locked together. Sarah's body began to glow and her eyes shown a sparkle. She began to smile and looked as if she were being fed.

"Don't let go of me, Daddy. Hold on to my hand tight. I can feel the life coming back to me. You have to save us, Daddy. Please come and take us away from here."

David's heart sank as he listened to his little girl pleading for him to save her. He had no idea yet how he was going to do that.

"I only have a few minutes. Take all you can from me now and I will come back as soon as I can. Elizabeth, your father knows what is happening. He is the one that is enabling me to come to you. We will find a way to save you."

"Tell my father that I love him, please."

"I will tell him, Elizabeth."

Suddenly, the tent door was ripped open. All three turned to face the opening. Two women stood in the doorway. David pulled his hand away from Sarah. She looked healthy again. He was happy to see her face full of color again. The women came inside the tent.

"What the hell is going on in here?!?!? You are not allowed here!!!!"

The woman looked angry and threatening. Just as she approached David, he felt his body pulled from the tent. He could see his body again. He felt the pain of re-entering it and taking a breath in. He came back screaming.

"No-o-o-o-o-o-o-o, not now!!! Why did you bring me back now??? Damn you, Mark!!!"
