Christine backed away from his face after the kiss. She looked at him and saw the tears he was crying. He couldn't believe that she would look past his deformed face and embrace him like a normal man.

Christine's heart was beating fast, she felt something in her chest that she had has never recognized before.

Erik looked at Raoul and turned away, "Take her, forget me, forget all of this . . . leave me alone, forget all you've seen, go now, don't let them find you! Take the boat, leave me here, go now, don't wait . . .just take her and go, before it's too late . . .Go . . .Go now, go now and leave me!"

Erik walked in and stared at the music box. Sat down and listened.
"Masquerade . . .Paper faces on parade . . .Masquerade . . .Hide your face so the world will never find you . . ."

Christine walked in slowley and heard the music. She stared at him with sad eyes, and held the ring. She was so torn at the heart, she was lost. But she knew what was right she knew she had to be with Raoul. Her life would be safe, and light. Nothing would ever go wrong, and she would have a settled life.

Erik looked up at her, "Christine, I love you."

Christine felt her heart start to beat as loud as a drum. She started singing a song to the tune, All I ask of you.

"All I want is someone, to hold me all night through. A love thats always beside me, to love me and to guide me." Erik looked down at the music box, he thought that she had left with Raoul. He wished she wasn't here, he didn't want to hear her explaination of why she couldn't be with him.
Christine lowered herself down on her knees and placed her hand on his. "Please let that be you."

He looked up at her with astonishment. She wanted to be with him? Christine took the ring he gave her and put it on her finger. As he looked down at her hand she leaned in and kissed him. Much more passionate than before. When she backed away, he touched her face.

"But I thought you..."

She put her finger on his mouth. "My heart chose what it really wanted, when I first kissed you it screamed out to me. My life with Raoul would be innocent and calm. Light and warm, I would have everything I should. But Raoul was my childhood. You bring the dark and fearless side out. My passion comes alive with you, my music comes alive. You are my adventure. Please.. I choose you my angel."

He swung his arm around her waist and pulled her close and held her to his chest. He placed his chin on her head and felt her breath underneath him. As if she were part of him.

"But what of Raoul?" he asked still holding her tightly.

She breathed in to his chest, "I told him that I could not lie. He shouldn't go through life thinking he found true love, when it did not find him in return. But I found it with you didn't I?"

Erik took her chin in his hand and made her look up at him. "If only you wish to stare at this face, I am truely yours. I love you, my heart belongs to you."

Christine touched his scared face."Your face does not move me in anyway good or bad. It is part of you, so there for it is perfect."

Just then a crash sounded. "Track down this murderer! He must be found!"
"We must go. They will found us here, Christine are you sure you want to run with me? Danger will lurk around every corner."

"Anywhere you go let me go too..."Christine sang with a smile looking at him. Then they both ran down the staircase to the mirrors. Erik grabbed his mask and threw it back on. Christine ran to look down the river and saw Raoul rowing away. Erik broke the mirrors, and found the secret door. They ran through it and the curtain fell behind.

Christine and Erik ran down the hall into a room with a small stained glass window. Erik lit all the candles and the illumination showed the rooms beauty. The walls were painted in gold, and the bed was more of a stuffed round red mattress, with black blankents and golden pillows. There was a table with wine and fruit on it.

"What is this place?" Christine asked as she looked up at the domed ceiling. It was like a place in an enchanted world.

"I came across this room a long time ago, it's very hidden. I decorated it, because it was just empty and cold. I'm sorry, we will be able to go back when Madame Giry tells me its safe. This place will have to do."

"I love it." Christine said. She looked over at Erik. He looked at her and saw her eyes were heavy.

"You must be tired my dear. You have been through alot today." He walked over and picked her up and placed her on the bed. Putting the black silk blanket over her. He turned to walk away, but she grabbed his hand. He turned his face back to her, and she smiled a tired smile.

"Angel?"she whispered.

"Erik, call me Erik."

"Erik, please. I do not wish to lay alone again. Please come beside me." she had a look of begging in her eyes. Erik moved next to her and kissed her temple.

"How does such a beautiful creature end up next to me in my world?" He slid down and she rested her head on his chest. She listened to his breathing, and closed her eyes.

"I love you." she whispered and soon drifted off into a deep sleep.
Erik stroked her shoulder, partly because he wanted to feel her, and partly because he wanted to make sure she wasn't just a figment of his imagination.

Soon he drifted off himself. Holding on to her.
