Tourniquet

The knife sent a sharp pain through him as it sliced the vein of his shaking wrist. He dropped the blade and it landed on the hardwood floor with a hollow clatter as he clutched his wrist, chocolate eyes wide with fear as the blood began to seep between his fingers. Dear God…what have I done…! What have I done…

I tried

To kill the pain

But only bled more

Oh so much more

I may die

And I'm pouring

Crimson regret

And betrayal

He was panting, wild-eyed with fear at the horror of what he'd done. But…it's for the best… It's best that they never knew…never suffered because of me… He slumped to the floor, his shaking legs unable to support him any longer. It's better that I die…before I hurt one of them…hurt her…

He looked at the ceiling, tears streaming unchecked down his pale and bloodless face. "Please…please, forgive me…forgive me…I'm sorry…for it all…please, don't hold this against me…"

Dear God, don't hold this sin against me…for it is a necessary evil…

I'm dying

Praying

Bleeding

And screaming

Am I too lost

To be saved?

Am I too lost?

"Shigure!"

Hatori's voice…

Haa-san…where are you?

"No! What have you done!" Hatori's panicked face came into view as the dragon dropped to his knees next to him, the deep green eyes wide and anguished.

I…I'm sorry Hatori…

"Oh God, Shigure!"

I never meant to hurt you…you were the last one I would ever wish that on…

"Please, Shigure! Hold on!"

A small smile. I can't…you ask me but you know that I can't…you know…

The dragon was franticly trying to stop the bleeding with his tie for a tourniquet around the dog's wrist. But red was already beginning to seep through… It was hopeless, the dragon knew that, but he couldn't just do nothing, just sit and watch as his friend, his cousin, his beloved, slipped from life.

"Please! Shigure, I love you!"

What…?

"Don't go…I never got to tell you how much I love you…please…"

The dragon slumped over his body, crystal tears falling onto the dog's ghost-white face. "No…Shigure…"

"H-Haa…san…?"

My God

My Tourniquet

Return to me salvation

My God

My Tourniquet

Return to me salvation

The dragon's eyes snapped open and stared into fading chocolate. "Shigure! Dear God, there's still time!"

"No…" I'm sorry…but I can't endanger them any more…please…

"There's time Shigure…I can still save you…we can be together…"

Let me go… "No…" Repeated, soft but resigned.

Hatori shook his head, refusing to give up, to let go of the one he had loved for so long, but never told.

Do you

Remember me

Lost for so long

Will you be on the other side

Or will you forget me?

The dragon swallowed. "I can't!" The tears were streaming in rivulets down the dragon's face as he clamped a hand on the wound again. "I can't…"

Yes you can…please, let go…you know I can't stay here anymore. The things I've done, having been planning, would have hurt so many…and all for no one's sake but my own selfish desire… A soft touch; weak, and getting colder. The dog gently laid his hand on the dragon's, silencing his frantic tries to stop the flow of blood. "I…love you…but don't…please…"

Hatori shook his head. "Shigure…but…I love you! How can you ask me to do this?"

A painful chuckle; it was shifting, the world wavering. How can you ask me not too? You know as well as I that I do now the only thing I've left myself, the last bit of decency, is this…

"Don't you dare laugh at me Shigure," yelled Hatori, near hysteric now as he grabbed the dog's shoulders. "If you won't let me save you…then there's only one way left…I won't be left alone again!"

Haa-san…you were never alone before…you just never saw us there…Ayame and I…we love you…I love you…but please, let me go…

I'm dying

Praying

Bleeding

And screaming

Am I too lost

To be saved?

Am I too lost?

"I'm not going to lose you!" Something caught the dragon's eye and he grabbed it. It was the knife, crimson still staining the blade.

Shigure's eyes widened. Don't…!

The dragon swallowed, squeezing his eyes shut, as he slashed both his wrists, dropping the knife as he clutched at them. He gasped at the intense, fiery pain. "I won't leave…I couldn't stand it if you left…"

"H-Haa…san…why…?" Why? You had so much left…you never deserved this fate!

"Because," he whispered, gazing into the dog's flickering chocolate eyes through the pain in his own eyes, love unwavering. "I love you…and now we can…finally…be together…for always…"

Haa-san…

My God

My Tourniquet

Return to me salvation

My God

My Tourniquet

Return to me salvation

Return to me salvation

I want to die

The dragon, panting from the pain, stretched out next to the dog. His arms wove themselves around Shigure's thin waist, the dog's face resting against his chest. "I love you," he whispered. "I love you…"

Shigure closed his eyes, a serenity claiming his fears, his morality, his mortality. Haa-san…I love you as well… I'll never leave you…never let go…

Hatori bent and his lips met the dog's at last… "One fond embrace…"

My God

My Tourniquet

Return to me salvation

My God

My Tourniquet

Return to me salvation

The door opened; shocked eyes took in the grim and profound sight: the dog and dragon, dead, in each other's arms, Shigure's head curled against Hatori's chest, while the dragon's rested against the soft black hair of his beloved, blood staining the floor around them. "No!"

My wounds

Cry for the grave

My soul cries

For deliverance

Will I be

Denied?

Christ, Tourniquet

My soul is sad

/Owari\\\

A/N: Wow…sad…but sweet…sorta… Anyway, this is my first ever GureXTori fic, so be kind when you review! Hmm…I wonder where this idea came from… Oh well… Kudos and cookies to anyone who can find the other song in here (the one that's NOT Tourniquet!) and another kudos and cookies to anyone who can correctly guess who walked in at the end! Love ya all!

P.S. There WILL be a sequel!
