They all think I’m crazy. I’ll show them. I’ll show them who’s crazy.
The fire comes for us all, Lilith.
“Get out of here!”
“Keep going! I can’t hold it off much longer!”
Jason was coming, right?
He wasn’t coming. The fire had engulfed the house and there was no way even Jason could get out and he wasn’t coming. He wasn’t coming he wasn’t coming he wasn’t coming and she hadn’t said goodbye and she hadn’t told him that she loved him and she had been horrible to him and he wasn’t coming and he had saved her and he wasn’t coming and the fire, the fire was hot and it burned and it wanted her.
Oh God the pain and she couldn’t take it and he wasn’t coming and she thought that her heart might burst and maybe it already had and she couldn’t breathe and the fire had taken him and it wanted her and maybe she should go join him, it’s not like she could live with this giant sucking hole in her heart anyway and she loved him and she hadn’t known and he was gone and the fire…the fire..
The black hole in her heart grew to the size of a universe and she fell into it and there wasn’t a Lilith anymore, there was only the fire and the smoke and the loss and the pain.
