She looked like an angel, my angel, and I couldn’t stop staring at her face. It’s been two days and she hasn’t woken up and it’s my fault.
I touched her hand and it was so cold and so pale…. a single tear slipped my eye, it’s all my fault my fucking mistake that she’s here.
“It’s not your mistake, it’s destiny.” said that same annoying voice.
I turned around and there he was standing there tall. Moreover, the freak was smiling! Really smiling!
“What the hell is your problem man? Why the hell can’t you leave me and my girl alone? Who the fuck do you think you are? God? Reaper?”
The fucking bastard had the audacity to smile again! What on earth was wrong with this dipshit? Did I just crack a joke? He is freaking sick!
“Sammy…oh poor little Sammy…you’re still holding onto her like a coward you are? Aren’t you? Let her go.” He said.
“You sick jerk just leave me the fuck alone and don’t you ever call me Sammy!” I shouted at him. I hated his guts.
“I am whoever you want me to be…God. Reaper Karma. Or death. And all of the above.” As he came forward smirking like a maniac I saw his horns for the very first time.
“It’s over you are dead.” *Boom* it hit me what had just happened. “Now leave her alone, she is alive and breathing and let her live. Also stop crying about how much you love her and how she will be yours forever and blah blah! It’s hurting my ears.”
I turned around and walked up to him full of rage. Noticing his prominent moustache for the first time I clenched my fists and ground my teeth. Nose to nose, that’s how close we were, and one punch was all I needed to knock this jerk out. Of course, he continued smiling like a madman.
“Anger doesn’t suit you Sammy, it’s ugly just like that dead heart of yours.”
I snapped. I tried to raise my wrists to deliver a deadly punch but I just couldn’t move, not even an inch. It was like I lost all neuromuscular control over my body. Who the hell was he?
“I’m everything you could ever imagine. I wish I could tell you…but for now I’m going, and you my friend are coming with me to hell. That’s where you belong and now leave the little girl alone, let her live and love again! She will be happy without you.” I stood still…hearing him voice out my worst fear was my undoing and I couldn’t stop the tears any more so I cried, cried like a fucking baby.
I cried for her, for myself and for all that we lost. She was my forever, my redemption and my reason to start over.
“We are getting late now are you done crying ?”
“I want another minute with her.” I got up and sat next to her holding her hand I asked again “Just a minute that’s all I want.”
“You know crying is a waste of time but you my fella need it take the minute. Cry all you want because it will be the last time. Your time starts now.” he said and vanished in the air .
I clung to her, hugged her and felt her heart beat for one last time.
“You’re my forever and I promise I’ll be back for you maybe in another realm but I will . Now I want you to listen to me for once and just promise me you’ll be happy that’s all I want .”I said to her sleeping form and somehow I knew she could listen .
Getting up from the chair I heard the clock stop and as the darkness engulfed me I bid my love goodbye.
As I got up to leave I turned around and asked the tall horned man “Why hell though?”
