Destiny said nothing. There was nothing for her to say. She felt as if she were dead inside, it hurt so much, still she liked to pretend she didn’t care.
Life had never been easy on her and she wondered if this was far enough. Maybe it was time to end it all or perhaps start anew. Who knew, she might end up living a better one next time around.
Although, she was doubtful. She would never be able to escape this miserable existence.
It was all her fault. Everything. All of it. She had brought it upon herself. She was the one who believed in Fate more than she should’ve.
She was the one who felt all those emotions that weren’t hers to feel. She was the one who wanted to change things and now she would be the one to meet death.
Her Fate was cruel and there would be no turning back time.
“Don’t you have anything to say?”
“What am I supposed to say? You’re right, it’s all true. It is my fault.”
“Do you even care?”
“What do you think?”
“That’s not an answer.”
“No, I don’t care.”
“Why ask when you seem to know everything there is to know?”
“Maybe because I want to hear it from you.”
“Or maybe because you don’t know as much as you think you do.”
“Time will tell.”
“Indeed, it will.”
“Is it really that simple?”
“Maybe, maybe not, but it’s time for me to go.”
“Will you ever come back?”
“If life dictates it to be so, but I’d rather not. I think I have had enough life times to last me for eternity.”
“I hate to say this, but I agree. It’s better if you don’t come back. I don’t want to relive this anymore than you do. And I think you might not be able to anyway.”
“You must be happy then.”
She smiled then, a sad, soulful smile, a smile that will haunt him forever. She was gone, hopefully, never to return. He was free. He hated this freedom, but he loved it too.
Past was cruel to them both, present not much better, but future might turn out to be theirs to hold. He hoped she was at peace.
She deserved that much after all she had endured, a whole life time of torment. They were both helpless against life and death. They hadn’t chosen this existence.
It was given to them and there was no escaping it. Rules were not meant to be broken. Not here. Not anywhere.
