Emma collapsed on the ground, still writhing. The girl stared at Emma. Emma looked up and saw a little touch of sympathy in the girl's eyes.
"I'm sure your wondering," The girl said. "My name is Ivy. I am a heart gatherer. I'm truly sorry for you. You were stupid enough to believe in love."
Tears streamed down Emma's face. Ivy turned and started to leave, then suddenly she felt a force. She flew in the air and hit the willow tree. She hit the ground with a sickening thud.
"What the hell!" Ivy yelled.
She looked up to see a boy floating above her. She immediately knew who he was.
"Give her heart back to her!" He yelled.
"Stay out of this Ceberus!" Ivy screamed in frustration.
She wasn't going to let him get this heart! She got up and ran. He quickly followed behind her,still yelling at her. Why did he always get in her way!? If he knew how much she needed these hearts then he definitely wouldn't take them from her.
"That's enough Ivy!" Ceberus yelled.
Ivy suddenly felt a sharp pain in her back. She collapsed and started breathing heavily. She felt a cold liquid streaming down her back.
"Just as I thought, your blood is black and cold." Ceberus stated. "You truly are heartless."
"Damn you!" She yelled holding the heart beneath her.
"Just hand it over and you have a chance of living!" Ceberus demanded.
Ivy whispered into the orb, and soon after it disappeared.
"What did you do!?" He yelled at her.
He lunged forward and grabbed her by her shirt. He brought her close to his face and pulled out knife. He held it up to her throat, his eyes merciless. Ivy looked straight into his eyes.
"Do it." She demanded.
She grabbed the knife out of his hand and started plunging it towards herself. Ceberus tackled her and grabbed the knife. She reached for the knife again, but this time Ceberus held her down by her wrists and was sitting on her. Tears came to her eyes, they were as dark and red as blood, and stained her beautiful face. Ceberus was shocked, sure the tears were blood, but they were still tears.
"Do it! Kill me!" She cried out.
Ceberus grabbed the knife and flung it far away. He got up, grabbing Ivy in the process.
"Why the hell do you want to do die!?" He yelled.
"Do you think I want to do this!? Do you think I'm happy?!" She screamed, more bloody tears streamed out. What was this? Ceberus was feeling sorry for her!?
