My name is Walter Hartwell White...I live at 308 Negra Arroyo Lane, Albuquerque, New Mexico...
Skylar's voice sounds small and frightened. He can hear the TV in the background, the reporter calmly recounting the events of the bombing.
"How are you doing?" he asks her.
To all law enforcement entities, this is not an admission of guilt. I am speaking to my family now.
"How am I doing? How are you doing?"
"I'm, uh..." He looks around, as if searching for the answer to her question. He's just poisoned a child, blown up a nursing home, killed three men, and skillfully manipulated his only friend in the process. How does he feel? "I'm doing quite well." He sighs.
Skyler, you are the love of my life, I hope you know that. Walter Junior, you're my big man.
"Jesus, Walt, the news here. Gus Fring is dead. He was blown up along with some person from some...Mexican cartel and the DEA has no idea what to make of it." She hesitates. "Do you know about this?"
Walt doesn't say anything. He keeps staring off at the distance, mind racing.
There are... there are going to be some things, things that you'll come to learn about me in the next few days.
"Walt? Are you - "
"It's over," he says. He waits for her to stop, to calm down, to listen for once.
I just want you to know that...
Skylar is silent, except for the occasional deep breath. He can just imagine her face - preparing to say something, struggling with herself, realising, as always, that whatever it is is better left unspoken.
No matter how it may look...
But she pushes ahead. Says it anyway.
"Did you do this? What...what happened?"
I only had you in my heart.
It hits him suddenly, the gravity of the situation, and he smiles slightly. There's no reason to be scared anymore. No more danger. Despite all of Gus's threats, despite all of his power and influence, he isn't standing here. There is only him. Walter White.
"I won," he tells her, and hangs up before she can reply. He stares up at the sun, and suddenly laughs.
So I didn't do 'Purple'. It just wouldn't fit. BUT I hope you enjoyed this anyway.
Review please, and check out my other fics! Thanks!
