Till death and beyond
It was a sunny warm day. The sky was a pure blue and the animals seemed happy. It was a fairy tale day. But not just for the reason of it being beautiful. It was a fairy tale day because it was me and my boyfriend's anniversary. The anniversary of the day we said we loved each other.
It was a true love. A love that's as meant to be. I'm sure you've heard this all before and have known the couples to break up a week later, but we were different. Our love extended even beyond death.
" Lina? You okay?" he looked over at me in concern.
" yeah I'm alright," I smiled up at him, " just lost in thought I guess."
He laughed and gave me a gentle kiss on my forehead. He pulled me into his lap and we sat there together in the park, basking in our love.
" I love you till death." I told him.
" and beyond that." he replied.
We sat there happily and before I new it we fell asleep on the blanket we were sitting on. I woke up when I heard sirens in the distance. This was a peaceful area so something was wrong. I shook Damon awake.
"Damon, Damon wake up. Something's wrong I hear police sirens!"
" shhh, shhh, it's alright Abeline." he only used my full name when we wanted me to listen. I felt like I should but something was definetly wrong.
The sirens died out and I finally relaxed, but something nagged at me not to. If only I had listened. It was sunset now and the sky was dyed in oranges, blues, pinks and violets. I could tell Damon had fallen asleep holding me because of the way he breathed. I loved him so much.
I felt a slight pressure at the back of my head. I heard a click and a gruff voice telling me not to make a noise.
" if you talk girly I will blow your brain all over your boyfriend." I squeezed Damon's hand and he squeezed it back. He wasn't asleep anymore. Very gently Damon put his hand over the man's gun and pushed it down.
" you don't want to hurt either of us."
" don't you tell me what to do boy! I will kill you both!" I was so terrified, for me, for Damon.
" please," I said in a small voice which was very unlike me, " please don't hurt us." I pleaded with him. I didn't want to die and leave Damon all alone in the world.
" I said not to make a noise didn't I? Didn't I!" he yelled and I shook. Damon wrapped his arms around me tighter. " you two are so annoying with your lovey dovey crap. Just go and die already. No. Better yet let me speed up the process."
The last things I heard were the sounds of the gun going off twice and Damon's last words.
" till death." I felt tears in my eyes as I looked into his deep green ones.
" and beyond that." I choked out, blood spilling from my mouth. Dying wasn't what I'd wanted to do when I was 18 but with our last words to each other, I was content. We'd said once that not even death could rip us apart. Our souls were stitched together by fate's thread and nothing could change that.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
