The very first disgruntled words that stemmed from her mouth were ones that reflected on the distance that time would keep us apart. It was disheartening to myself to be the bearer of such grave news and lie to her. But somehow I had reasoned long ago that this was necessary in order to prevent her from knowing the truth. My basket of sins would probably reach the brim when all was complete. Once that was all said and done, I'd reveal to her the nature of these secrets that I kept hidden within for so long. I doubt she would want the tainted me, but as long as she received a cure I was completely fine with that outcome. Her following question was a request for me to try and figure out how long I'd be absent. I had never tried to place a time frame on this whole ordeal. To make matters worse, I didn't even know how long I wouldn't be around.
"Two to three weeks up to a month."
I exclaimed staring at the ceiling with a quiet confidence. It was easier to lie without looking at her directly. And by easier I meant hard as fuck. My sins were accumulating every second now as I had just given her a false time. It was my terrible attempt to try and calm her with something that she could actually hold onto while I was gone. It didn't make the uneasiness in the pit of my stomach go away though. The last bit she included made me turn my attention to her, the consequence of death something that I had pushed away though she had caused it to resurface. If I did die then all of this would be for nothing. And even more, her pain would be eternal. But in spite of everything said I would only smile with the next few words, hiding the grim seriousness of what she brewed.
"I'll make it back to you safely. I promise."[/color]
And with that said I would finally give my attention from the ceiling to her.
Oh the rollercoaster going on in my chest wasn't pleasant.
