Emily busied herself placing the pillows behind his head, and focused on making sure he had the best of everything. She ignored his talk about his key and safe. All she knew was that she didn't want to know what was in there. The second she heard the words "if I die", she spun around, not able to conceal the pain anymore. He was not dying tonight. "I demand to go first". She tried to turn away from him, and focus on the sheets, but his hand on hers made her succumb to tears. She could not live without him.
