Chapter 1: Ending of AOD

"a bolt from the blue"

As Kurtis turns to leave, Boaz uses her last ounce of strength to skewer him through the gut. He loses his magic shuriken and slices her head off, but it is too late for him. He dropped to his knees, gripping his abdominal with one hand and the other holding him up, then he slumps to the floor with a groan.

"Noooo!" Lara screamed at the top of the catwalk. She had recently arrived back from Eckhardt's lab after killing Eckhardt and Karel, when she bears witness to Kurtis collapsing to the floor. Lara started to search for a way down, gripping the edge of the catwalk; she lowered herself down to the ground.

As she ascends, she twisted her foot, cried in severe pain.

She glanced upward toward Kurtis. She got herself up, forgetting the intense pain in her foot, she limped to his side, she turned him over onto his back, blood was still flowing out of his injury. She placed her palms onto the wound and applied pressure.

"Hey Stranger," He murmured, making her look at him in those blue eyes. The wound is continuing to bleed. He is losing to much blood.

"Oh bugger, Kurtis I can't lose you," She babbled and closing her eyes, attempting to keep herself from crying. She hardly knew him, but it was like she knew him her entire life. There in her heart developed a pain she ignored a long time ago, the pain of loving someone again, losing them.

"Lara, thank you." He whispered under his breath, Lara laid her head against his temple, the tears came running down her cheeks, falling onto his temple. She knew every second that flew by his heartbeat was slowing down.

"Shh!" He said quietly, Lara opened her eyes and moved a lock of hair out of his face to see those ocean blue eyes.

"I love you, Lara." He said with a wheeze in his breathing and coughed a little bit. She leaned in and kissed him on his lips. When she broke the kiss, he closed his eyes and took his last breath.

Lara looked at him as more tears streamed down her cheeks. She had hatred in her heart for that Boaz creature if she just had made it back in time to prevent her from killing him. She gazed away from him in hopelessness. Upset with herself, someone like her always made it out alive, where others never did. She looked back at him.

"I love you too, Kurtis." She mourned and laid her head on his chest, falling asleep sobbing.

Several hours later, she awakens up frightened. Gently she lifted herself from the ground, noticing that she is alone. Kurtis's body was gone. She moves toward the pool of blood in the middle of the floor and retrieves Kurtis's shuriken. The weapon, vibrates and the blades along its edge extend. Lara has to struggle a bit to hold onto it as it spins her around, pointing the way into a shadowy tunnel. Her lips curve up in a subtle smile. Then she walks off into the darkness.

Six months later

Lara relaxing at her father's grave, she thought back at the stranger who she had formed feelings for in does two days, now he was gone like everyone else. That just made her more upset; the last few months, continued to torment her. She had attempted to obtain all records toward the Lux Veritatis, but not much was collected. Tears of frustration rolled down her cheeks. She just needed explanations for why she woke up alone. Sighing she got up from the ground, zipped open her backpack, taking out a letter she had written, she opens it up, began to read it over again.

Dear Winston

I am leaving for a while. I need to clear my head. Sorry if I did not say goodbye, but I am just not in the mood for any small talks. After what had happened in Prague, I have reached to the point that there is more to life then raiding some ancient tomb with priceless artifacts inside. You remember after Alex and Terry I never imagined I'd fallen in love again, but I did, in the process and I lost him.

I need a break from everyone and find myself again. I am not the Lara you all know and love anymore. Don't trouble too much about me, I'll be fine and will be back soon.

Sincerely with love


She stands up and strolled past the kitchen dropped the letter on the kitchen counter. She then walked down to her garage, roaming all her cars and motorbikes. She stops at the newest one in her collection, Kurtis Motorbike.

She revved the engine of the bike, slipped into first gear, she raced off, out of the courtyard, onto the road. She had no idea where she was going, but she just drove as images of Kurtis crossed through her mind. She revved more, going even faster not knowing where she will end up
