I wanted to try my hand at doing a series of one shots. This is the product of that want. I want your help. Either in a message or in a review, post a single word that you would like to see as the prompt for my writing. I will credit you. This prompt, Breathe, is my own.

I don't own Underworld

"Selene, stay with me!" Michael yelled to his mate, who had already lost consciousness, and was losing blood fast. If he didn't act soon, she would…

No, he couldn't think like that. Selene would survive this; even if this cost him everything.

The Lycans had finally caught up to them and had trapped them during the night. They had tried to fight them off, but they had gotten to close. Selene had tried to protect him, and ended up being hurt severely. Now she lay, dying in his arms due to blood loss. He felt guilty; after all, he had been too cocky and let his guard down long enough for the Lycan to strike. Selene had jumped in between him and the Lycan, taking every attack.

He had to act fast. Without a second thought, he had ripped off her clothes and began to asses her injuries as quickly as possible. Claw marks lined her body, and they were not healing.

"God damn it, Selene." He said, looking around the den for any sign of a blood bag "You stay alive, you hear me. I will be right back." He carefully placed her down and ran out of the room. He came across a kitchen like area and began searching. His heart stopped in his tracks as he saw a single blood bag sitting on the table.

He picked it up and rushed back to Selene. He could hear a heart beat still coming from her, not strong, but still there. He lifted her up and ripped the top off the blood bag. He placed it up to her mouth and tried to get her to feed.

"Come on, Selene." He said, taking her hand "Drink it, please… please." He sounded desperate. He watched as her hand slipped from his grasps and fell to the floor. The room had become silent, except for the sound of his breathing. Selene was dead.

"No!" He said, placing her down on the ground "I will not lose you damn it!" He had poured the blood into her mouth and now was performing chest compressions on her, hoping to bring her back to life. Tears had clouded his vision, but he kept at it. He wouldn't… he couldn't lose her. This reminded him so much of when he lost Samantha and it was killing him.

He didn't know what else he could do. She still wasn't breathing, yet he had been at this for a while now. He fell backwards into a wall, sobs ripping out of his chest. Selene was gone, and it was his fault. He couldn't save her, no matter how hard he had tried.

"I'm so sorry, Selene." He whispered, leaning down and kissing her head "I love you so much." He laid down next to the body of his lover and closed his eyes. He refused to leave her side until a Lycan would try to kill him. Next to him, a vampire's heart began to beat once again. Her eyes snapped open and she began to breathe once more.

This was shorter than what I would have liked, but oh well.
