Trapped in Timelessness
Fallen Angels

Nick and Leona were resting on the large rock, their feet in the cold water. They looked like castaways who were stranded on a small island surrounded by the sea.

Both had caught their breath, and stopped each other’s bleeding. But the consequences of their battle against the curse were not over yet.

“I think we should go home,” Leona said. There was nothing she wanted more.

“You’re right.” Nick was ready.

“What are we going to tell my mom?” Leona glanced toward her boyfriend.

Nick gave no answer. “Let’s go home,” he said.

Nick stood up and helped Leona up. He held her hand, smiled reassuringly at her, and they headed for the wooden bridge.

Although it was a hot day, they sensed the cold water on their skin--which covered their ankles—would not release them. The water had become another obstacle during their getaway. They couldn’t get out of the lake.

“What is it?” Leona asked.

“I don’t know.” Nick sounded anxious, looking at the bridge.

“Why did you stop?” Leona was tired and she also missed her bed. She had no idea what was happening.

“I can’t move.” Nick was scared.

“What do you mean?” She tried to move on, but she was stopped in her tracks.

“It’s like there’s a wall between the lake and the land. We can’t step out of the water.” Nick was sure he was right.

“Oh my God…” Leona sealed her mouth and locked her eyes on him.

“I don’t understand,” Nick said, trying again and again.

“There must be something we can do to get out of this place.” Leona cried out.

The following hours they did everything to escape, but their efforts had no result. Everything was in vain. They were tired, sleepless and, in addition, they should have been at school. The graduation had come. The students had arranged a big party.

“What is happening?” Leona had so many questions.

“I have no idea.” Nick was helpless.

They didn’t stop calling for help. They did everything they could imagine to steal somebody’s attention but nothing. It was like no one could see or hear them.

“I want to go home.” Leona was desperate.

“Me too, Leona.”

“My house is right there, you can see it!”

“I know that, Leona.”

“Then why can’t we get out of the lake?”

“You should better get used to that,” Nick said. He sounded resigned.

“What do you mean?” Leona suspected what he was about to say, but didn’t want to hear it.

“When he bit me, I saw some weird things. We are trapped in this lake,” Nick said, meeting her eyes. “We can’t leave.”

“Are you insane?” Leona asked angrily.

“You‘ve got to face up the truth.”

“I will get us out of here. I’ll figure it out. I don’t care how long it takes.”

“I really hope you’ll make it.” Nick kept gazing at Leona.

No matter what, he loved seeing her not giving up. He admired her strength.
