Lioness Sat with her arms wrapped around sharks limb form as she pressed her face into his chest. She wailed into his chest rubbing her tears across his yellow suit. The sirens outside seemed silent to her, the lights flashing, lightning up the room around her. Axel and King heard her cries but couldnt reach the two for there was too much debris in the way. Lioness stopped rubbing her head feeling defeated and weak. She opened her eyes, a far distant look in them. She tried to tell herself that this was a dream, shark was just playing one of his tricks on her. Lioness eyes filled with tears again and she clutched shark even harder than before like that of a frightened child and her teddy bear.
Lioness did not understand why it had to happen to shark, the goofy one, the one who always smiled, why did it have to be the one that enjoyed life the most? But a thought threw a wave of guilt over her body.
This is my fault she thought to herself slightly pulling away from the yellow fabric, her eyes wide open. Maybe if I hadnt been mean to shark and made him run away he could have been here and things could have ended up differently!
Her mind raced over the past few hours and she slightly let go of shark, letting him slip through her hands onto her lap. She looked into his face with such a look of horror that she felt that her mind was deceiving her. Time was moving slow around the wounded pair as she felt her heart race and blood rush.
The last thing I said to him.was that…he didnt belong on the teamthat he ruined my lifeI hated him.
Her own mind seemed to betray her, her heart told her to stop when she could have but her rage and anger never ceased. Her voice was choked as she tried to speak her eyes welling with even more tears. She closed her eyes and looked away.
I never meant that shark! You belong on this team! You belong in the house, You belong in my life! Lioness scrunched up her face the tears freely flowing, squinting her eyes to try and get rid of the nightmare.
I-, Her words were cut off as something brushed up against her cheek.
Lioness eyes shot open and she looked into her arms to find two crystal blue eyes looking at her.
Shark weakly looked at lioness, his eyes half open and full with such color the ocean looked dim against his eyes. His chest moved ever so slowly against her arms and his arm was shakily raised toward her face. Lioness stood motionless afraid that if she moved shark would disappear. Shark halfheartedly smiled, his lips trying to move and turned to a small smile towards lioness. His fingers gently brushed up against lionesss cheek, pushing the tears off her face and onto his hand. Lioness felt his hand and glove brush her tears and she started to smile towards him.
Dont worry, Shark whispered so softly Lioness thought she missed his words. A slight pause froze time just for them, I forgive you,
Lioness felt the room around them disappear, the heat of fire vanish, the panic in her soul disperse. She felt that what he said was unreal, without hesitation or question he forgave her, even after all the stuff she had said to him.
Lioness didnt have the power to move as somebody took shark out of her hands and placed him on a stretcher. She watched as they carried shark off, the arm that rested upon her cheek hanging over the stretcher, slightly swinging back and forth.
