Chapter Text

Don’t you dare.

She’s not actually thinking it in so many words, but the meaning behind the only thought she can formulate right now—“no”—is there all the same. The question is whether it’s intended for him, or the universe at large. Both of whom should know better than to do this to her.

She’s lost so much already.

“Captain.” A gentle voice is trying to reach her.

Nodding mechanically, she bends down to where he is instead. Their fingers are still woven together. She brushes her cheek against his own and closes her eyes, breathing him in before she’s made to stand.

“I love you,” she whispers, damned if she’s going to let that half-crazed declaration remain unanswered. He probably can’t hear her anymore, but she needs him to know.

“I love you. I love you.”

 


 

You were my lesson I had to learn
I was your fortress you had to burn

~ madonna, “the power of good-bye”

 

Carry me home
Bear my weight on your shoulders
Carry me home
Nothing else matters
Carry me home
Bear my weight on your shoulders
Carry me home and don’t let go

~ jorja smith, “carry me home”
