Summary: He knew this was the end.
He holds her hand in his, hands as cold as ice, hands that are weak and fragile. He tries to warm them, but finds it an impossible task. He kisses her icy fingers, brings them close to his face, blowing warm air on them, but they do not warm. He supposes he never really expected them to.
She gives him the small, almost sad smile and pulls her hand back, places it against his seemingly burning cheek. “Enough of that.”
He can’t remember the last time he cried, but he knows he wants to now, watching her lay there, body ragging with disease. He caused this, he allowed this poison to slip through and into her system, and now if the healers couldn’t heal her, she wouldn’t make it through the night.
He closes his eyes and strokes her hair, knowing either way, that for the two of them, this was the end.
