29) Never

I always promised I'd be there for you.

Despite what you may have thought, the job never came before you. And if it came right down to it, I would choose you over the job every time, because you are the world to me.

I just never thought it would end this way.

"Stay with me, Michael. Please, stay with me." Your face is hovering above mine, and there is so much pain and fear there. How could I have been so stupid, so selfish? I hope you realize that, no matter what, you are everything to me. Maybe it's better this way. At least this way, I know my sacrifice meant something. It meant saving your life, and that… that's all I need to know. You will live.

I can feel your hands pressed against my chest as you hold me tight, but we both know it's no use. I'm dying. Neither of us can stop it. But that's okay. My only regret is the pain that you're going through while you're watching me die. But you're strong. You'll get through it. I just wish I didn't have to break my promise to you. I'm so sorry about that, and I hope you'll forgive me.

I love you, Fiona. I'm sorry.

I promised you forever, and I lied.

The End.

A/N: Sad... I promise, the next one will be lighter. Thanks for reading and please review!
