The Way He Said It

There was something in the way he said it.

----

His silhouette highlighted by the waning light of the sun.

---

His coat-tails winding and flapping about in the rhetorical storm as he unknowingly struggled to be heard against the sound of her desperately beating heart.

---

There was something in the way he said it.

---

As he took one last emerald glance at her before turning on the edge of the unyielding precipice, above an abyss no one had--as of yet, found the bottom to.

---

There was something in the way he said it.

---

When his body erupted in an explosion of light, forming an almost translucent spike of fire that did not seem to have true tangible form.

---

There was something in the way he said it.

---

As he fell off the edge of her vision and into the sea of darkness, beyond her watery vision and outstretched hand.

---

There was something in the way he said it.

---

But she had told him she loved him anyway.

---

As he left in a burst of light, not once looking back, and looking surer of himself than he had ever been.

---

"I promise I'll come back!"

---

And it made her deathly afraid.


A/N-Just a little drabble that came in pieces...I didn't bother making it into a fic.. ;..I suppose it helps with my descriptions too...and it could also be considered a kind of poem...but, whatever...
