He rushed over to the edge of the cliff, looking down to see if Mallory was alright. He looked down and saw the bloody corpse of his lover lying on the cliff.
"Colby!" Mallory said, shaking his shoulder, "Wake up!"
His eyes shot open, his breathing ragged.
"You alright?" Mallory asked, running her fingers down his slightly sweaty face.
His breathing still ragged, he whispered, "Yeah…"
"You wanna talk about it?" She asked him sweetly, lying down next to him.
"No..." He answered, weakly, still breathing heavily.
"C'mere," She invited, opening up her arm for him. He moved his head onto her shoulder. She gently ran her fingers through his thick hair.
"Better?" Mallory asked, still running her fingers through his hair, planting gentle kisses here and there.
She could feel him nod gently, his breathing still not completely even, although it was calming down. They both lay there in silence for several minutes before Colby broke the silence.
"I never want to lose you, Mallory," He said, gently running his fingers across her mid-section.
"I don't ever want to lose you, either, Colby," She replied, continuing to run her fingers through his hair.
When his breathing was completely calm, Mallory could tell that he had fallen asleep. She closed her eyes, and fell asleep, holding him in her arms.
Don woke up and looked at the clock. 4:00 am. He sighed and looked over to the bed David was lying in. Don could tell David was asleep by the even rising and falling of his chest. He rolled over and closed his eyes. Just then his phone began to ring, he opened his eyes and grabbed it off of the nightstand.
"Eppes," His muttered into the phone, groggily letting his heavy eyelids shut as the person on the other side of the phone began the conversation.
"Don Eppes," The person began, "I've heard so much about you,"
"What? Who is this?" Don said, opening his eyes, sitting up in bed.
"This, is your murderer." He replied, disconnecting the call.
Ok, so, this is a ridiculously short chapter… but I wanted it to end this way. I can't promise when the next chapter will be posted because I am crazy busy trying to get a lot of things ready for school. I did want to leave everybody waiting for something exciting… and that will come in the next chapter. :)
