"No! I wont accept this. I can't!"

Slowly, her last breath eased itself from her lungs, and her pounding heart finally beat its last.

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

In that instant, the ancient creature that had folded itself within him, waiting for the correct moment, finally awoke. A ripple of power larger than the universe ran from him like an unstoppable tide, and the depths of hell themselves screamed with the destruction in promised. Finally, his mouth opened, and he spoke words that echoed across time and space:

"I AM KAMINIC. I EXISTED BEFORE THIS UNIVERSE WAS CREATED, AND I SHALL CONTINUE TO EXIST LONG AFTER IT HAS BEEN DESTROYED BY MY HAND. NOT EVEN DEATH CAN STAND AGAINST ME, AND I SAY TO YOU: SHE WILL NOT DIE. NOT TODAY!"

In a mind-exploding burst of power, he tore apart the very fabric of reality, burning it like dry wood and sending cascades of triumph echoing to the very edges of the universe; with a movement that was as powerful as it was legendary, he reached into the afterworld itself and tore her soul free, and then plunged it back into her body, changing her cells to their origin, to the way they were meant to be.

All this took place in an instant, sending an infinite flash of light out in a burst that was incomprehensible to human eyes.

"YOU SHALL LOVE…AND LIVE…FOREVER!"

Suddenly, they found themselves back in the hospital theater, which was punctuated by the resuming of the heart monitor in a triumphant manner.

The doctor stared in astonishment, "That…Nurse, I need a spot check, on the double! Get the X-Ray equipment ready! I think…I think we've just seen a divine intervention! Look, even her hair has regrown!"

All the operating room went quite, though, at the sound of one little girl's voice. "Mommy?"

Slowly, ever so slowly, her eyes cracked open.

"Mommy? Are you alright, mommy?"

The tiniest bit of a smile came to her lips, which quickly grew larger, until soon it crossed all across her face, and her eyes opened wide in awe.

"I'm…I feel amazing! I've never felt so well!"

In a move that stunned the doctors and nurses that were crowded around her, she actually sat up, and then, to their growing dismay, began to remove the IV's that were connected to her.

Urgently, the doctor spoke, "No ma'am, you have to leave those in! They're what's keeping you alive, and-"

She shook her head, her smile still beaming brightly at her lover, "No, none of this is keeping me alive; only he is."

A moment later she flexed her muscles, sending all the IV's flying from her body in reaction.

"How…?"

The fire in her eyes burned brightly, "I have been touched by Kaminic. Nothing is impossible now."

And then, grabbing her daughter in one arm, and her lover(and sometimes Kaminic, creator of this reality) in the other, she punched out a wall, and flew off into the sunset, where they lived happily ever after. At least, until their daughter went to third grade, when a whole new story began…

The End.
