Part Eight: Belavito Bridge
I stood ready to jump.
To end my life.
I watched down far below at the glow of the fog of the night that would ultimately become my grave.
Without him life was not worth living, I was not worth living.
The rain smeared my trembling lips and wet the ledge where I was stood, but I did not care; I was going to fall anyway.
I closed my eyes and screamed as loud as I could, but it did not soothe my torn heart that was eating away at my body. My heart had been ripped out from its seams and left to bleed dry on the ledge of Belavito Bridge. Nothing, nothing compared to the ache and hurt I was experiencing. Each second was hell, without him I was already dead.
I walked closer to the edge ready to jump.
“XAVIER!” he screamed.
I turned around and opened my eyes to see him running down the lane, drenched by the needling raindrops.
“Go away!” I screamed, my throat tear-choked and sore from crying, my eyes stinging from the pain of it all.
“I will NOT go away! I love you and I made the worst mistake! Forgive me!”
“But we can’t be together, your father-“
“Enough of my father!” he screamed, “I have run away from him and I shall never see his face again. I just want you, you and only you and if that means I have to give up my legacy then mote it be.”
I didn’t want to hear his, I did not want to be hurt, it was just a dream. I backed away from his hurting eyes, but forgetting how slippery the edge was I stumbled and fell.
He held out his hands and held on to me.
“Don’t let me go,” I whispered in a terrified scream, my legs kicking the air wildly, “Don’t let me go.”
“I am not going to let you go,” he said tears spilling from his reddened eyes.
“Axel!” I screamed, his hands wet from the rain, “I am slipping.”
“No,” he said, trying to hold on tighter but failing, “You’re not.”
“I am going to fall,” I said my heart ripping the frame of my rib cage.
“You are not going to fall, I am going to pick you up and we are going to run into the night and spend the rest of our lives together,” I began to slip further away, my legs dangled into the frosty mist, the was sun just about to rise. “And we are going to grow old together.”
“Die with me Axel,” I said falling, “Let’s create our own eternity…”
We locked into embrace and we fell from the bridge.
He wrapped his arms around me and we fell into the mist and glow of the beyond. I closed my eyes and whispered, “I love you,” as I pulled in closer for one last eternal kiss that ended our lives and begun a dream that him and I were never to wake up from.
