He wasn’t supposed to die before her.
He promised, he promised that he would never leave her, that he would always be there to tell her to breathe, that she wouldn’t have to bury him too.
That’s why when she first found him, the tears didn’t, wouldn’t fall. The only thing she felt was rage, the only thing she wanted was destruction. Obliteration, of all who did this to him.
It was only far, far, later, when all that was left were ashes and fading memories that it truly sunk in.
He’s not going to be there for her anymore.
