So, this is a very short little one shot. It has a different ending, but, I got this inspiration while listening to Slow Dancing in a Burning room by john mayer. Enjoy?

"Matt!" I shouted as I saw him standing in the middle of the room, flames licking his surroundings. I ran over to him.

"Steph! What are you doing in here? I locked you out!" He grabbed my face, and I could see the pain in his eyes.

"I don't know! One minute I was standing outside, the next thing I know, I'm in the hallway!" I can't say that I was upset.

"C'mon. We have to get you out of here." Matt started pulling my arm frantically, but I resisted.

"No. Matt, I love you. You are my life. And if you're going to die, I'm going to go with you. You will not go alone, just like you haven't gone alone this entire journey. Without you, I would be dead anyways. Remember that song you wrote? 'I knew the moment I first saw you, our love was meant to be. It was only a matter of Gods time. My instinct said to marry you, patience said to wait. but I knew to let you go would be a crime.' * If I can't marry you, I will die with you."

"Steph..." Matt looked like he was going to cry.


He pulled me into him, and started swinging me around, dancing and singing into my ear.

We're going down,
And you can see it too.
We're going down,
And you know that we're doomed.
My dear,
We're slow dancing in a burning room. **

The house was slowly collapsing around us. Spirits of the poor people who had long ago been murdered and forced to stay in this house, guarding Aickman's secrets surrounded us. I knew we were doomed, but we were doomed together. So until the moment we died, we were just slow dancing in a burning room.
