Jonah:- "Celeste i..i..i'm.."
Celeste:- "Jonah it isn't your fault, it never was, all the things you did they were never you, he contolled you, turned you into something you're not"
Celeste:- "No but's mister, in the end you get to be the hero, you have to finish this, finish of lance for good, 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 started and kill Lance, protect the camp, show Lance that no matter how bad things seem you will never back down and you will keep on fighting till the very end, i want you to promise me you will"
Celeste:- "Jonah promise me you will finish this, please, do this for me"
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"
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 destroys the earth and the underworld just to get you back"
Celeste:- "No you won't mister, it's my time, you have to let me go"
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"
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
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
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.
