Third and final part.

Eduard's POV


I turned around when I heard a gunshot ring through the air. Toris had also turned to the door, and the two of us stood in silence for a moment. Toris and I were here, Russia was out, and the only other person in the house right now was … oh no …

Before I knew what I was doing, I was running as fast as I could, nearly falling over as I turned the corner. No, please let my guess be wrong, please, let this just be nothing.

I ran down the hallway I assumed the shot had come from. I could hear Toris trying to catch up to me, but I paid no attention to him. I needed to find Raivis; I needed to make sure he was okay. I was throwing doors open, only being greeted with silent, empty rooms. I was about to open another room when I noticed one door down the hall that stood open. I ran over, with full intention of running in, but my legs froze. My whole body froze. I could feel the colour draining from my face. This couldn't be happening.

There was blood. Blood was coming from some unknown source, hidden from view by the desk in the centre of the room. No, no, no, don't do this me. No.

I ran around the desk, my legs giving way as I fell to my knees. There, laying still, unmoving, not breathing, was Raivis. There was a gun on the floor by his right hand, there was blood running from the left side of his head. He'd … h-he'd … no … no!

I wrapped my arms around him, pulling him closer to me, not caring about the blood that was staining my shirt. I shook him, shouting at him, trying to get him to wake up. Toris had walked around by that point, his legs giving way as mine had, his eyes wide in shock, tears beginning to form. I saw him glance over at the gun, and then back at me.

I held Raivis close to me, his body was going cold … No, this couldn't be happening … this … I bent over, I gave in, I started to cry.

This is my fault. This is all my fault. I should've been nicer to him, I should've … I should've tried … I shouldn't have been so idiotic, so damned stupid!! If I'd just been nice to him, maybe he'd … maybe he'd …

Raivis … Raivis, please … please come back to me … I love you … I love you …

Please, please … Raivis …
