like raindrops in July
I wade into the waters and wonder why
I ever laid down to die
"Fight against the current" you say
"Don't take flight, just stay and fight"
But the waters are stronger
and I fear I can't hold any longer
I grasp onto this light
but it's getting harder to fight
I twist and turn and bite
but its far too late: I've lost all of my might

So much change to be dealt with in such little time. Peter waited outside the cottage to see Christabell for the first time since he'd sacrificed a bit of his life for her.
He was told that she was walking now, alive and well as ever, anxious to see him like he was to see her.
James and Keifer regarded Peter's sudden youthful transformation with graceful acceptance. They knew how much Peter loved Christabell, what he'd do for her. Peter was still their brother, no matter what had happened over the past weeks, he was still their brother.
Christabell took a breath before she walked out of the cottage. She was and wasn't prepared to see Peter. She knew of his sacrifice for her, of the trials he'd gone through for her. She also knew that things would never be the same again.
Peter stood tall, his eyes softening when Christabell walked past the door to meet him.
Her skin glowed, her cheeks were rose and cream. Her lips were full and pink, no longer the icy white shade of death.

Peter thrashed and fought against his brothers, fighting to save Christabell from these strange, beautiful creatures that promised to help her.
"Don't touch her!" Peter growled fighting harder against James who thought small, was able to pin him in place.
"Tansy!" James shouted when he began to feel his grip on Peter slipping.
Tansy waved Papina over to Peter. Papina gave Peter an apologetic look before she poured a liquid into her hands and blew it like mist at Peter's face.
Peter instantly felt lightheaded, his strength seized from him as he lost consciousness.
Christabell exhaled a heavy breath, still lost from this world and entirely unaware of the fact she was being taken from the ship.
She felt as light as air.
Sitting outside the cottage looking house they had taken Christabell into, Peter ran his hands through his hair nervously.
It'd been over an hour before he'd come to and demanded to know what was going on.
"We are trying to save her." Was all the blonde gi

James manned the wheel of the boat, sailing them safely through the night.
He set the boat in the direction of an island before them.
He knew in the pit of his stomach, that Christabell was not going to make it. That no matter how many promises Peter made or how hard Christabell looked to be fighting; that it was pointless, the dawn of Christabell's life was blooming.
James accepted this and sailed the boat towards the island. The least he could do was find Christabell a final resting place that was peaceful; a place Peter would accept for her.
"Where are we?" Keifer asked when the ship had touched land and they had stopped swaying from the waves of the sea.
"A place in between. A neverland," James replied getting ready to disembark.
"Why are we here?" Keifer continued, his curiosity unquenchable.
James opened his mouth to explain, unable to get one word out before Peter was storming out of the captain's cabin his first time leaving Christabell's side since she'd been w
