Long lost words whispered slowly.

A caressing melody that drifted around your form in a soft tune as you looked back and smiled. You could hear him screaming your name, pleading with his friends to let him go to you, but you tuned it out. Because you knew the minute the sound of his voice reached you your resolve would waver. This had to be done and you refused to let anyone else pay the price. You would do this at least; and though you didn't know what exactly the consequences would be— or that this was honestly the right choice— you had to try. Even as his beautiful blue eyes begged you to not do this with his outstretched hand reaching towards your glowing figure, you gave a slight smile in return and whispered your own words to him.

That everything would be alright.
