He sat beside her hospital bed, gleaming tears rolling from his eyes. She used what strength she had to wipe them away. He held her hand, kissing it ever so softly, being careful of the catheter which carried nourishment to her body. Rosa Marie could barely lift her head, or even turn it. She made quiet, ululating noises as acknowledgment to Armageddon’s questions and the expressions of his love. She cried, too—not because of her death, but because of Armageddon, a man with enough sense to amass a nice portfolio of money, but little emotional defense. She wanted to protect his spirit, as she found the sweetness of his gaze ever so potent. Rosa held his hand, lightly squeezing it now and again, her mind racing with the fear of leaving him so defenseless, so vulnerable. She gave no thought to fears about her own future, for his fears were even greater. Death can be a selfish time for any person, yet Rosa wished that she could survive just to keep Armageddon safe.
As Armageddon watched Rosa Marie die, she whispered something in his ear that until six years later, he could not comprehend: “Take care, sweet Armageddon. You will survive without me; you must survive without me.” Without the strength to move, she smacked her lips, symbolizing a kiss. As her eyelids fell, so did Armageddon; he fell to his knees, still holding Rosa Marie’s hand, and inside his head, he screamed, his mind vibrating as the raw and unrehearsed noise reverberated throughout it. That is when he set foot off of the world. He felt all of his security drift away with Rosa’s life, and every bit of his confidence, pride, rationality, and ability to love float away with her soul.
