The end was coming. No, he lied, it was already here. Brown eyes widened as he took in the scene unfolding before him, watching as more creatures flew and crawled out of a huge black vortex that lay in the middle of the town. The sky was completely dark, blood red outlining the clouds and exotic ships sailed through the air, dropping more creatures from their flanks.

Screams were the only sound haunting him, his own body in no shape to take anymore action. And though he would never consider it in any other circumstance, giving up was his only option. He was done. That realization was strong enough to wet his eyes as his knees weakened, sending him crashing to the ground.

Jumping when a light touch latched onto his arm taking his attention, he turned to look over to his side seeing his beautiful wife, also on her knees, blood and bruises clinging to her and tear stains streaking her cheeks. More tears fell from those mocha eyes as her lips trembled, along with the hands grasping his arm.

"W-what do we do now?" she asked shakily, sadly looking for guidance he couldn't provide.

Tightly grabbing her hands in his hand while forcing a smile on his face, he stared into her eyes. "You are so beautiful and I am so happy to have had a long and happy life with you." His voice cracked as tears glazed his eyes. "I love you forever."

She choked on her sob. "I love you forever, too." she cried, throwing her arms around his neck and kissed him.

They kissed, drowning out the destruction and bloodshed around them until a big explosion consumed the entire place.
