He's Gone...

It's all my fault.

Hello Everyone, Cheska here.

I...I managed to escape from the monster's clutches.

But...Jeff... he's gone...

I'm sorry... he...

He died saving my life.

It happened so fast.

We were sitting in the cell when I heard this crackling.
I looked up and saw the bars weren't giving off sparks.
The bars lost their electrical charge somehow.

Jeff jumped up told me to get down, 
flipped the bed over and had me hide behind it.
He punched the mirror and grabbed two of the 
biggest shards of glass and hide them in his pockets.

He cracked one of the bars in half and used it to pry the door loose.
The guards came in after that, looking him down and frowning.

He... killed our two guards by jamming
broken glass shards into their throats
and snapping their necks.

We ran through the complex.

It... it was so cold and dark.

We evaded capture for a little while and ducked into a corner.
Jeff wrote his last post there with me. 

Sitting in that pocket of darkness.

He kissed me...

And he yelled at me to run.

And I did just that. I ran... as fast and as hard as I could.

He stayed behind to fight. 

There were so many Hallowed there.

And... even though I couldn't sense it like I used to.

I knew HE was here too.

The monster. Slender Man.

I heard screams. 
I heard bones snap and crack.
I heard pleading and suffering.

But I ran from it all.
Hoping Jeff would survive and come back to me.

And he did. 
I saw him running towards me.
His face bruised and bloody, but smiling.

I thought we would make it.
I thought we'd both survive.

But I didn't see it.
Or rather, I didn't see it in time.

Slender Man came from behind.
Following us... trying to kill us.

His tentacles flailing at his sides.

He shot one towards me.

He wanted to end my life before Jeff's eyes.

Jeff wasn't going to let that happen.
He saw it coming and dove right in front of it.

He pushed me out of the way and took the tentacle in the chest.

Right above his heart.

He coughed up blood and fell to the ground.
I stopped... shocked at what happened.
The monster used the opportunity to take another shot at me.

Jeff just wouldn't let it happen.
He took the second tentacle in the shoulder.

It... it seemed to start laughing.

At Jeff... At Us.

Jeff spat a bloody wad at it and got back up, the tentacles still protruding through him.

And he snapped them off at the base.

The thing roared in pain and sent the rest of them flying at us.
He dodged them all, smiling and running towards me.

Jeff caught me as I stood there, wrapping himself around me as best as he could.

And we went back through the Otherworld .

I didn't notice back then.

But he was so pale.
And he seemed so tired.

We made it back to the start of a small town in Maryland.
Found a small motel and rented a room.

He... he was smiling.
He gave me the biggest smile I've ever seen.

And I hugged him.
I threw my arms around him because I thought we escaped.

I thought we had escaped together.
We sat together on the floor, not wanting to get the bed dirty.

I laid his head against my shoulder and kissed him.

And then I felt something wet under me.

It was blood. Jeff's blood...

His clothes were soaked in it.
The wounds weren't healing.

And he began to grow more pale.

He began to cry and I did as well.

We both knew what was happening...

He was dying.

He explained what happened when he got hit by the tentacles.

"They drained my energy and my powers away.
Apparently I failed too much to just die."

"Cheska, I'm free. I'm not a Revenant anymore."

Apparently he had just enough energy left as a Revenant to get me to safety.
But had run out before he had a chance to heal himself. 

He lost the ability to heal himself after we entered the Otherworld.

"Jeff... I'm sorry. You didn't need to save me."

"Don't be sorry, Cheska. I had to save you."

"I Love You."

We both said it at the same time.
He was becoming paler.

I tried to stop the bleeding, tried to help the wounds close.
And he held my hand and shook his head.

He understood what was happening.
I cried harder. 

"Don't leave me, Jeff."

"Please don't leave me."

I buried my face into his chest.
I wanted to wake up. 

I wished it was all just a bad dream.

I wanted to wake up from this nightmare and let everything be okay.

But it wasn't.

Jeff smiled in the end.
He kissed me softly and stroked my hair with his hand.

"I'm sorry, Cheska."

"I'm sorry I have to leave you."

"But it's my time now."

"Maybe I'll see Fizzy when I get there."

He asked me one last thing before he died.
He wanted me to sing his favorite song with him as a farewell.

The one I sang to him before.
The one this mother used to sing to him as a baby.

And I did. I sang my heart  out to him.
Tears stung my eyes as I kept going.
He held my hand, his grip loosening as the song continued.

I held him in my arms and embraced him as he look at me.
He...he kissed me one last time before the end.

His breath became shallow. His eyes glassing over.

He looked into mine and I saw the pupils fade in color.
They stared up at me. Lifeless.

The man I loved was dead in my arms.

And I was alone.

I love you, Jeff.
I love you so much.

That thing is going to pay.

The Redeemed


  1. Cheska...

    I'm so sorry. I wish I had been able to get to know Jeff, if only to be able to share what you're feeling right now. Pain shared is pain halved, right?

    Well, maybe not. Maybe nothing can lessen the pain of what's happened, but that's okay too. It just means the love will never go away either.

  2. Cheska...Fuck. Slendy likes doing this, doesn't he? Trying to break people by killing their loved ones?

    We'll remember Jeff. We'll fight, we'll heal, we'll live in his memory.


  3. [keyboard hijack]

    Uh, hi. You probably don't know me...I was Tenebria. Not sure who I am right now. But...

    Ms. Allen, it wasn't your fault he died. He chose to die for you and did so gladly. You couldn't have prevented him from doing so.

    I would know. Lucy died for my freedom, even if it was at first in vain. I couldn't stop her. She did so of her own will, and even if I had known what she intended I could not have prevented it from happening.


  4. I'm so sorry Cheska. I'm so sorry you had to see all of that. I'm so sorry he's gone.

    We're all here for you. Just remember that.

    We'll make that bastard pay one day. I promise.


  5. I'm so sorry to hear this, read this, I mean. I saw your post, and...I'm really sorry. A best friend, perhaps the greatest friend you ever had....sacrificing himself for your life. I understand how it feels, believe me; thinking that it should've been you that died, instead...I wish there was some way I could make this all better, I really do.

    In the end I suppose we all must band together and honor the names of our friends who died for us. Keep on fighting the good fight, we're all going to get to that end of the rainbow one day. Believe me.

    You have my deepest of sympathies.

  6. Dys yes he's going to pay.

    And...I'm sorry for Jeff. I know how it can feel to lose a loved one...although maybe not to that degree. Let yourself keep living, Cheska. You've got your friends still. *Joce

  7. Cheska.... I'm so sorry. Vale and salve. Kick arse. Stay safe.

    ...Jeff... He loved you... I miss him too.

    If you need to talk to someone...

  8. We don't know each other, but I wanted to stop over here and say that I am so sorry for your loss. And yes it will pay. It doesn't get to win forever.

  9. I'm sorry... I'm so sorry...

    I wish I could help, but this is the only way that I can.

    I'm sorry...

  10. Oh... oh God.... Cheska, Jeff's picture will have no rival when I'm done. That tentacled bastard....Fuck.

    If you need someone to talk to, or just... whatever... I'm around, ok?

  11. Cheska
    I Hate You
    That Will Never Change
    You Have Done Terrible Things To Me And Melo.......
    I wont forgive You no matter what even if you have changed.
    But that does'nt mean I don't have compassion for you. Though I hate you that does'nt change the fact that I still feel the most powerful feelings of sorrow for whats happened to you. Because Ive gone through the same thing.
