GENRE: YA Fantasy
Evren and Sa'av faced the villain together and Sa'av was hurt. Things are coming to a head.
His sapphire eyes were dilated, his breathing shallow. "What happened?"
"They pierced me. In the chest."
Evren swore under her breath as he lifted the torn tunic and she saw the wound pooling with blood and liquid.
"Will you let me?"
His eyes flickered up towards her, hazy with pain. "Please, Evren."
Swallowing the lump that had risen in her throat, she kneeled down, the violet silk pooling around her. The tightness in her chest wouldn't leave. This was goodbye.
Tipping her head down so he wouldn't see the tears, she went to work, binding the wound. He inhaled sharply when her hands touched his waist. Glancing up, she opened her mouth to apologize for hurting him.
But was surprised when his mocha hand came to her chin and tipped her towards him.
Their lips met together and a volcano of heat flushed around her face down her neck. Evren bit his bottom lip gently, her eyes fluttering closed. Heat swarmed other places of her body and she pressed into his chest, careful to avoid his cut.
Tipping her face away from his searching lips, she rested her face in the nape of his neck.
"Evren," His tone was hoarse, "Please - "
"I have to leave, Sa'av."
She felt him slump down, his body quaking with disappointment. Tears threatened to slip down her cheeks. Biting down hard on her lip, Evren leaned back so he could see her face. The orange and violet dust particles continued to fall around them. They were in their own messed up fairytale world for that moment.
