Today they would be together for the last time of their lives, they can’t prevent the catastrophe no matter how hard they try!
It was out of their control really,
The deadly virus has already engulfed her body and mind, she knew that any moment now could be her last,
In spite of pondering over the possibilities of prevention, all they wanted was to spend the last few moments being united and savouring the moments like that rider of Browning!
They knew what their fate would be and was ready to face the outcome,
So, they did!
They embarked on a journey that would be etched in their memories for this lifetime and beyond!
They wanted to ride!
And RIDE they did!
From the mountains of the Himalayas to the dunes of the Sahara, they had covered it all!
After the journey, they felt rejuvenated and wanted to eternalize the moment
That bad thing had to happen and it did!
He could observe the bright sunshine fading away from her lovely face, her eyes grew whiter by the second, and the hands, colder…
Her eyes closed, hands and feet started to feel more and number….
Everything left a mark, something like a snail’s track, she was there but wasn’t at the same time!
He knew what was going to happen, but we cling onto false hopes until the truth forcibly gets out by sucking the heart dry, so did he, he couldn’t accept that the love of his life was being taken away from him in such a manner, he repeatedly tried to refresh it, thinking it would all be a bad dream and everything was actually okay, but it wasn’t..
He failed to
save his beloved and she was
from his life
It was all very perplexing!
He could see her slowly disappearing into oblivion, but could do nothing about, parts of her body and soul started to detach itself
Bit by Bit!
Now, years later when he recollects this heartbreaking tale,
At the end, he always says the same thing…
“I’m gonna kill the bastard who put that virus in my lovely program………”
