“Leave me alone,” Love spat as she curled up on the couch.
Pain silently refilled Love’s glass of wine.
“I said, leave me alone!” Love dissolved into choking sobs. She wrapped her arms around herself for protection. With a gentle touch of his finger, Pain shattered the shield like glass.
“Why won’t you leave me alone?” There was no energy left in her words. Her heart pumped desperately to keep her alive.
“You know I can’t, Love. Please stop fighting me.” Pain reached over to tuck a strand of hair away from Love’s soft skin. “Let me help you.”
A whimper escaped Love’s lips as she let Pain envelop her in his embrace.
“When this is all over Love, you’ll be stronger than you ever thought possible.”
