“Honey, I could never leave you, I, I, I will follow you into that void” stammering his words as he sobbed, he hugged the mutilated body of his girlfriend close to him. He pulled the cap off the bottle of pills and started to swallow them, half a dozen at a time.
After the pills were gone he sat there, crying, his tears flowing down the torn cheek of the girl. He tried to push the skin back together, but as the drugs took hold his fingers felt leaden and his actions were halting.
His vision blurring, he smiled as her eyes opened. He dreamily leaned down to kiss her lips. As the blood sprayed across his vision and he began to slip into darkness, he thought it odd that the love of his life would bite him like that, and odder still that he couldn’t feel anything.
