Gamer to Farmer: Goodbye

A/N: This fic is a little one-shot that I decided to create in my current mood. It is told from Mage's point of view during Tint's final visit to her in the hospital before she dies. I hope you guys like it. Personal update. The real Mage has gotten worse and I am going to the hospital to visit her tonight. I just wrote this at school today and I pray for the best.

My eyes flutter open. I look over and see him. Once again he has stayed the night, keeping me company throughout all of the trouble. He looks so peaceful when he is sleeping, although I know he is torn.

I remove the game from beneath my pillow and place it in the drawer of the bedside stand. During this entire ordeal, he never once thought of himself, only me. This was my way of rewarding him.

Deep down, I knew that today would be my last. I could feel my heart slowly, but surely, begin to die. He was the only thing that kept me going day to day.

He was beginning to wake up. "Good morning, Mage." He whispered with a smile.

"Good morning." I whispered back. I didn't want to let him know that I was going to die. I mustered the biggest smile I could and looked into his eyes.

He was a great guy. Among all of my friends, he was the only one who had been there for me. If the situation were any different, I would probably end up falling in love with him. But, since things were the way they were, I didn't want him to be hurt any more than he would normally be.

Why does life have to be so cruel? I was too young to die. Only eighteen, and I was going to die before I graduated. Life is unfair.

We talked about things for a short while. I was on the verge of tears. It wouldn't be long now. "Look in the drawer." I whispered at last.

The look in his eyes was unforgettable. At least I had touched one person with my life. He looked over at me and I could see something. Could it be? Is it possible that he loves me?

My question was quickly answered as he leaned over. The next thing I knew, our lips met in a gentle caress. Curse love, why do you have to be so fickle? His heart would be crushed. Our lips stayed in contact for nearly a minute before he pulled away.

We shared a quick embrace. "I love you." He whispered into my ear.

I barely managed a smile as he let go. I was getting weaker. He held onto my hand, not letting go if the world had ended. A single tear rolled down his cheek. All I could manage to say was "Goodbye."

A/N: Please don't die on me Mage. I don't want to go through this in real life. Thank you, everyone. Your support has helped me get through this ordeal. It may take me a while to update Gamer to Farmer, but I will as soon as possible. Wish us luck
