I just decided to write a story! Thanks to Lacee who inspired me to begin writing again! LOL ... anyway, it's gonna be a romance/tragedy. I'll probably not even finish it, but it's a nice feeling. Here's a sample. This is when Devyn, the leading man, dies. He's shot by an arrow, but I don't know what the circumstances will be yet.
“May I a-ask something of you?” He coughed and sputtered, blood beginning to show at the corner of his mouth.
“Anything!” Ailla choked weakly, her voice feeling as if it was about to break.
“Let me r-rest my head in—in your lap.” He tried to smile as she repositioned him, deeply searching her eyes as he looked up at her. She could feel her heart breaking in her chest as she gently stroked his hair.
“I’m s-so sorry to be l-leaving you.”
“Don’t be sorry. You’ll never really leave me.” His eyes became desperate.
“Kiss me.” She closed her eyes, leaned in and kissed him. She could feel his shallow breaths on her cheek begin to slow, and they were so cold. Finally, they stopped and she was too afraid to let him go … then he really would be gone.
“I love you,” she whispered, holding him in her arms one last time, violently sobbing heart-felt tears onto his shoulder. She wanted to hold in his warmth; she wanted her love to make him live forever, but it couldn’t.
TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!!
