She remembers it like it was yesterday. The horror, the pain, and the sorrow; she remembered it all. Everything was replaying in her mind like a film that would never stop. Her eyes hollow, she stared at the metal circle that hung loosely on a piece of silk ribbon that was draped around her fingers. Clutching the ring, she fell onto the hard floor with a thud. She didn't feel the pain, after what she saw, everything else was nothing compared to it. Pain was something she could never feel again. She had lost all her emotions that day. She had lost everything that day.
Sitting in their house, they were a perfect couple. Every day was a gift to them. Love was something that was always with them at that time. It was when their destinies were intertwined. It was when everything seemed perfect. She had smiled at that time. That was when he was there to give her the strength the smile every day; no matter what happened. That was when he was there to cradle her in his arms and catch her tears and tell her that it was okay and he was there for her. That was when things seemed right.
He was like her guardian angel. Brightening up her day, he gave her the smile that he loved to see. Nothing could tear them apart at that time. He was her wings. Lifting her up whenever something brought her down. He was always there for her. That was when he was there every day at the door frame to their bed room to wish her a good night sleep. Those were the days when she still had a peaceful sleep with peaceful dreams.
She was surprised the day he proposed. She was making dinner for them as today was their five year anniversary. Her back was turned to the stove. He wrapped his arms around her waist as he told her not to turn around. Releasing his arms, he slipped a necklace of silk ribbon the color of baby blue with a ring over her head. Gasping at the surprise, she turned around and kissed him as he had a matching necklace, only it was a shade of gray. It was when the days were still happy and full of love. Only soon, they would be tainted gray like his necklace.
It was a month before the wedding. It was going to be a small one, just with close family and friends. They were as happy as can be. He was heading to work like any other day. Only it wasn't. He was walking out to his car. That day it was raining and there were no spots to park so he chose an alley as his only chance. It he didn't park then he would be late and that would mean punishment. He needed the money to pay for the wedding after all. He wanted to see a smile on that day brighter than any other.
But he would never get to see that smile again.
Walking out to get in the car to drive home, he felt like someone was behind him, creeping up, and giving him an eerie feeling. Taking out his keys, his wallet came out with it. Bending down to pick it up, he was immediately halted with a bullet to the leg. Yelling, he tried to turn around, his world already becoming blurry. The bang of a bullet rang in his ears. This time to the back, he was shot. Falling, his body hit the ground with a thud. Feeling the person stand over him, he felt tears stream out of his eyes. Reaching to his neck, he felt the soft silk of the ribbon. Biting his lip, he felt another shot to the back. Bang. This time, it was a shot to the other leg. Feeling his world dissipate, he closed his eyes as he knew the finishing shot would come. When it did, his last words uttered from his now bloody lips were nothing but mere whispers that the killer couldn't hear, nor did he care.
Hearing the gun being tossed aside, he felt his world become hazed with pain. As he clutched his ribbon for the last time, he imagined her soft and gentle smile as his world went black forever. As he never saw the woman he loved again. He died along with his future. Along with that, his betrothed was to dying; only it was on the inside.
Looking at the ring on the silk ribbon, her hollow eyes created tears unknowingly. Her angel was gone. Her wings were trampled in the darkness. She was dead. Sprawled on the floor, she couldn't get up. She couldn't do anything. She didn't want to. He was gone…her reason to live…her love of her life….was gone. Everything was numb. She didn't want to feel empty anymore. Gathering all the courage she had left in her, she stumbled over to the kitchen, eyeing the knife; she slowly slid it out of the block.
Standing now straight, she had the knife vertical to her stomach. Taking a deep breath, she took one last glance at her ribbon. They were once united through it, their destinies intertwined. They had each other and needed nothing else. Now, that ribbon was torn apart, as well as their destinies, now divided. And now, she would divide herself from the numbing pain from her lost love. Quickly piercing her body with the knife, she fell to the ground. But she felt no pain, she had released it all. All the frustration, all the tears and sorrow; they were gone. All that was left was her pure form. As now, she was with him again, in the skies, with their destinies, once again intertwined.
