There was so much blood. He lifted her slightly into his arms, as gently as possible, and the dark red stain permeated every piece of his clothing.

She spoke. "I'm cold, Chakotay."

"Sssh," he whispered as he gathered her towards him, attempting to impart as much warmth as possible. "Save your strength."

Sensing his unease, she reassured him. "I'm not afraid," she said. "I'm glad you're here."

Her eyes drifted closed and he knew he had just heard her last words.

"Goodbye, Kathryn," he choked, his tears mixing with her blood.

The dark red stain was on his soul now.


Author's note: This one is for quantumsilver, who told me I should write a tearjerker. If you want a happy ending, just imagine it's a dream sequence.
