6.22 Getting your life back

Elvira swung for Draco but missed; he looked at her firmly then threw her to the ground. “Do you give up?”
“Never.” Draco was angry and screamed at her, “Fuck off.”
She laughed at him as she punched him, “You may look like your Dad but that would be going for second best and I only have the best.” 

Draco would never touch Elvira but being told he was not good enough, he’d had heard enough and threw himself at Elvira. Just like when he was a teenager he kept punching her over and over not giving up. The memory of Elvira hurting Torri gave him enough determination to finish this.
Elvira pushed him off her and snarled at him, “You are a waste of space just like your mother.” Draco saw red when she mentioned his Mum and yelled, “No-one disrespects my Mum, bitch.” 

He kicked her and Elvira hit the wall sliding down hitting the floor with a thud but before she could react he lifted her up so she hung in mid-air and quietly said, “I want my life back, my body back and you can leave me alone because you are not wanted.” Suddenly she fell from his hands onto the floor but she couldn’t move and said, “What is happening?”

Draco knelt beside her and said, “It looks like you lost and I won.” Elvira started to fade away and in a confused state replied, “You’ve been replacing my blood all this time.”
Draco smiled, “No my parents have, you lied they do love their son no matter what.”
“I will find a way Draco mark my words I will find a way.”
“And if you do I will be ready for you.” Then Elvira started to fade out of sight.”

Teddy was getting a coffee when she felt Draco’s thoughts and heard, ‘Mummy where are you?” She ran down the hallway, pushing the door open to see Draco’s eyes open.
“Son, is that you?” Draco tried to move but couldn’t, “Mum, I can’t move?”
The doctor walked in and Teddy said, “Draco says he can’t move, why?”

“Draco, your body has been through hell and back…”
“You’re telling me.”
“Draco, it could take a few minutes for your body to adjust to your blood so please stay calm and relax and try and concentrate.”
Blair practically knocked the door of its hinges as he ran in, “Draco!”

“Dad, it’s me. She faded…” Teddy interrupted him, “Faded?” Draco nodded and Blair asked, “Gorgeous, what do you mean?”
“Draco when you can get out of that bed, you need to smash her gravestone to make sure she has gone for good but only you.” Draco looked at his Mum and said, “The last thing she said was that she would find away.”
“If she does we will be ready but right now you need to rest.” Draco looked around the room and felt sick as he knew the answer but was hoping he was wrong, “Where is Torri?”
They looked at each other, then Blair replied, “Son, she came to see you but was too upset so Gran took her home.”
Draco looked at his Dad with a sad expression as all he could see was the worst, “Elvira was right, Torri hates me. She thinks I’m a monster. Can you all leave; I need to be on my own.” Teddy tried to protest but Blair took her outside and said, “He isn’t shutting us out gorgeous, he needs time. He’s in love with her and knowing my son, he is properly working out how to win her heart.”

Draco was able to move. He pulled himself up and wrapped himself into a ball and started to sob. The tears kept coming as he thought of all the hurt he’d caused. Torri had been the most important person in his life and he’d caused her the most hurt. 

He disconnected the machine from him and got dressed; he opened the door and almost collapsed. Blair caught him and sat him on the chair and said firmly, “Where the hell are you going?”
“Where do you think?”

“I see and how do you propose getting there?” Draco looked at his Dad and replied, “Let me ask you, if this was you and Mum was being stubborn, would that stop you?”
Blair sighed, “No but right now you need to regain your strength then you go after her and hope and pray she will have mercy and take you back but a word of advice, beg and grovel.”
Draco smiled, “You were right along that life style sucked and worst part is I had what I really wanted right in front of me and have properly lost the best thing ever.”

Blair helped Draco back into bed and Draco asked, “Dad, can you do something for me?” Blair listened as Draco continued, “If Torri needs anything please help her.”
Blair looked curiously at his son, “Example!”
“I know Sis and I have a trust fund, if Torri needs a bill to be paid or food, please take care of it and when I’m well I will make it up to her I promise.”
“You are aware Torri works for a living?”
“I know but please…”
“Ok Draco but only if I know she is struggling.” Draco smiled, “Thanks Dad.”

6.21 You have me

William was deep in thought when Victoria walked in. “William, are you ok?” 

He didn’t look up but said, “Draco is still out cold, we believe he is fighting Elvira but he didn’t come to me. I thought we were close…” 

Victoria sat beside him and replied, “When he gets through this talk to him.”
Will didn’t move or say anything. Victoria continued, “I’m trying to help here, I see you need someone to talk to yet you aren’t responding to me.” 

Victoria started to move towards the door when Will yelled at her, “I’m lost Victoria…” She turned and looked at him, “What do you mean?”
“My best friend and cousin is fighting for his life so everyone is focused there but everyone has someone but I don’t.”
Victoria was shaken by the comment and replied, “You have me, the twins and Art…” but he interrupted her, “Do you know how lonely it is when you sleep alone? It’s very lonely and all I think of is you and…never mind it doesn’t matter, I’m sorry I’m just worried.”
“You mean us sharing a bed?” Will was trying to think of how he could explain, “I didn’t mean it the way it sounded, and I just miss holding someone, waking up with someone, especially at times like these.”
“So you really think of us like that?”

Will became all nervous, “When you wore that bathing suit while swimming, I watched you get out and all I could think was how I could remove it.”
Victoria started to fidget as she smiled, “Oh I see. If I’m honest then I would tell you that I think of similar things too.” 

Will, got close to Victoria, holding her so her hands were on his chest and asked, “What things do you think about?”
“Lots of things, like us spending our first night together. How will we be, will I like it?”
“Are you ready?” 

Victoria tried to look away but Will lifted her chin so they had eye contact, “What are you thinking Victoria?”
“I’m not sure…” 

Will kissed her lips softly as he held her closer. She felt the tenderness of his kiss which sent shivers down her spine. She was torn, part of her hoped he would take her to his bed and make love to her but the half of her was nervous and was still undecided.
“Victoria, I can read your mind and I know you are still unsure so I will wait until you are ready.” She glanced into his eyes, “Thank you for being patient.” He kissed her forehead and said he had work to do.

Will was in his office trying to work but he couldn’t think straight. Suddenly Paris walked in, “Hi Will.”
He looked shocked but happy to see her, “Paris, I’m sorry I haven’t come to see you, especially after you had the baby.” 

He came around the desk to see the little one.
“Do you want to hold her?” Will happily took her from Paris and said, “How have you been?”
“Will, I couldn’t be happier but I came here because I heard you are seeing someone.” Will looked nervous but Paris assured him, “I’m happy you have someone, it’s the nanny, right?”
“It wasn’t planned but Draco knows me too well.” 

As Paris feed the baby she replied, “Philippe told me about Draco, I am sorry. She seems sweet; I would like to meet her…”
“Didn’t she answer the door?”

“Yes but she thought I was a work colleague and I didn’t want to upset her by saying I was Heather’s best friend. Anyway I know it may not be the best time to ask but I’m finally getting married and I’d love it if you, the twins and Art came. I want you to bring Victoria too.” He hugged her and said, “Congratulations Paris, you deserve it.”
“It’s this weekend, I will understand if you can’t come because of Draco…”

“I will be there Paris and if need anything please come and see me.” Paris took a deep breath and asked, “I want the wedding at the resort…” Will interrupted her, “Done plus I’ll make sure a room is available for the night.”
“Will, thank you,”

Philippe kissed Paris as he walked into the living room and asked, “Did you see Will?” 

Paris looked at the floor for a moment, “He is happy being with this girl Victoria but she doesn’t know who I really am yet. However Will is taking Draco being in hospital really hard. I feel guilty asking him to attend the wedding on Saturday.” Philippe held her tightly, “We are doing nothing wrong my darling and Will is happy for us you know that.”
“I know you are right…the baby is crying, do you want to go?”

“Relax everything will be fine and she just wants Daddy,” smiling as he walked off to take care of his baby.

6.20 Face to face

The door opened and Harmony walked in, “Dad, they need you again. Can I talk to Draco?”

“Yes sweetheart you can.” 

When he left Harmony looked at her brother just lying there and said, “Remember Draco, you have to finish this, only you and you alone can do this, trust me and remember you have Mum’s blood too.”

It was pitch black when Draco opened his eyes; he stumbled to his feet and looked around but saw nothing.

Suddenly out of the darkness came these red beaming eyes. Elvira finally showed herself to Draco but still unaware that his family now knew the truth.

“How does it feel now you cut your wrists?” 

Draco walked past her keeping his eyes on hers, “I’m just coming around, you know Mum saw me lying in a pool of blood and called for help?”

“Delicious, isn’t it. Teddy frankly trying to help her suicidal son and now you are in-between worlds but I will be the one who prevails and then I will kill your parents for your father’s betrayal.” Draco realised that in this state, Elvira couldn’t hear what people were saying to him. She either was too confident or as he slept she couldn’t access his thoughts. 

Draco pointed his finger to her and coldly said, “Leave my family alone. You made me hurt my Mum’s feelings but no more. And why Carlton?”
“Oh you mean pretty boy, come closer and I’ll tell…”

Torri walked the streets and all she could think about was Draco. She found herself at the beach where they spent the day together. She remembered how on this occasion he was sweet and loving and even wanted to take a picture of their day together, suddenly she remembered seeing his eyes sparkle like when he was a teenager. Now she was confused and wanted answers. Torri picked herself up off the floor and said out loud, “Draco, I’m coming to see you right now and you better have a damn good explanation for me.”

She stormed into the room where she found Draco lying there helpless and suddenly nothing else mattered. 

She collapsed by his bedside and whispered, “Draco, how the hell is she controlling you? Remember that day at the beach; well you had that sparkle in your eyes please get that back.”

Blair and Teddy had been notified that Torri had barged into his room but Estevan held him back, “Leave Torri alone.”

Blair broke free of Estevan and said harshly, “He’s fighting for his life and she is yelling at him.”

“Torri isn’t yelling at him, I think that was her intention but seeing him like this changed her mind so leave them alone and let Torri get things off her chest because we know they love each other.”

Torri went outside for fresh air when Harmony came outside, “We all heard you. Are you ok?”
Torri just stared at her, “I wanted to yell but I couldn’t do it…”
“The way you stormed in told me that but in the end you got upset. I’m worried about him too but I still think he’s an ass…” 

Torri was stunned and asked, “But don’t you…”
“Believe that Elvira is inside him? Yes I do but I still he’s an idiot. I know he loves his family, he saved us once but I think because he didn’t kill Elvira outright, this is why she is fighting to come back. Draco wanted Dad to be proud of him so he changed the plan so Dad could kill her instead of Draco. But I’m only the daughter so what do I know.”
“Are you saying Draco did this to himself?”
“He was a teenager but in reality was still a child. He took a potion, I mean we all did because we all wanted to help bring her down but Draco set her free and he was the one who had to put her back.”

“What age is he now?” Harmony rolled her eyes, “By now he would be an adult anyway but Draco was always in such a hurry to do things. Look I do love my brother a lot but I have seen moments when he is kind and generous, I mean he found a girlfriend for William, our cousin. How he feels about you, I’m really not sure but my honest advice is talk to him but do yourself a favour first, punch his lights out because he does deserve it.”
Harmony ran from the room and saw Estevan looking worried at her, “Uncle Este, please get the doctor the monitor is going crazy.”
“How do you mean?”
“I’m not sure…” Estevan ran to get the doctor.

Draco had Elvira pinned to the wall, “So let’s get this cleared up, you were horny and used my body to sleep with pretty boy and that was why I wanted sex all the time because half of it was you?”
“How did you like sleeping with a guy? Do you know I tried to convince your Dad to try that so we could share but he never would go for it but you thought all this time you were bi-sexual. Really Draco you are just like Blair you only like females.” 

Draco grabbed her and threw her to the floor, “You fucking bitch, I’m not someone you can use.” Elvira was laughing the whole time through Draco’s outrage.

“You are getting weaker and soon you will be dead.” Draco got off her and firmly said, “Not without a fight, bitch.”
As he was gathering his thoughts he heard a familiar voice, “Draco can you hear me?” He kept staring at Elvira as he tried to make contact through his thoughts, ‘Is that you Torri?’

Torri looked at his parents and said, “I heard him.”
‘Draco, why did you treat me so cruelly?’ He felt sick when he heard Torri ask that question but knew he couldn’t undo what had happened and responded by saying, ‘I’m sorry but it was Elvira.’
She told Blair and Teddy what he had said. Blair asked, “Torri, ask how he is doing?”
When Draco knew Elvira had no knowledge of his conversations he told Torri that he was doing ok but he was scared. Now he knew his family believed in him again it gave him hope.

“Bitch, you want me dead then come and finish the job or are you gutless?” Elvira launched herself at him and yelled, “I’m not gutless, you pathetic excuse for a man.” Draco laughed as he got free and said, “You are so stupid, you can’t even see what’s happening. I’m starting to get control of my body back.” 

The look of horror on her face was a picture, “No it can’t be…”
“Tell me what I’m thinking?”
Elvira stood there silent as she listened to Draco carry on, “I’m thinking that I love Torri, yes that’s right I love her, see I can say it and you couldn’t stop me,” Draco then screamed out loud and through his thoughts, “Mum I’m sorry, really I am.”
Teddy gasped in happiness as she said, “Blair, I heard our baby boy. He is fighting and he’s not giving up.”
“That’s our real boy.”
Elvira was furious, “No it can’t be. How dare you say sorry and those 3 words, they are revolting especially to that girl…” 

Draco punched her so she landed hard on the floor, “That girl as you call her has a name and deserves respect and if it takes me an eternity to win her heart back I will because at the end of the day you hurt her not me, I was just to blind to see it was you controlling me until it was too late.”
“She will never trust you and at least I can honestly say I helped.”
