"Come with me?" he asked, desperation showing in his clear blue eyes. Pocahontas turned to look at her father.
"You must choose your own path," Powhatan told his daughter with a warm and steady gaze. Pocahontas looked at her people, then at the settlers. Finally, her eyes came back to John Smith.
"I'm needed here," she said, tears forming in her eyes.
"Then," John said, his voice wavering, "I'll stay with you."
"No! You have to go back!" Pocahontas cried.
"But I can't leave you," John said, feeling pain worse than any gunshot.
"You might not have to," Lon said, coming forward. "I know a little about bullet wounds, as do some of the men. I'm sure with our knowledge, and their healer," he nodded to Kekata, "we could probably fix you up." Pocahontas looked around hopefully. Some settlers were nodding their heads and Kekata was deep in thought, already thinking of remedies. "What do you say?"
"Well, there's no question to it, if you really can heal me
Haunted NightsThrough the long and sleepless night
The winds never cease to howl
And though I give them all my fright
They keep on coming, coming now.
Through the curtain of the linen
Faces keep on drawing near
I'm screaming on the carpet now
Showing them all of my fear.
Angels of death surrounding me
And leave me shaking in their wake
Oh! If only this were a dream
And only if I- could wake.
The orange moon setting
Announces their egress
They leave my sanity
A scuttled mess.
I know each night
That they will leave
But they abandon me frozen
And I start to heave.
I crawl into the covers
And wait out the night
My murdered past lovers
Get their revenge all right.
(I know that this torment is done for tonight
But the hauntings repeat
And bring back my fright
For this happens each and every night.)
