I’m in love with a monster. A beautiful vengeful soul of a girl. Most men would run the other way when confronted with such an unforgiving force, but not me. Never me. I’ve always known what lay dormant in her heart—the twisted darkness that dwelled silently inside of her. A wiser man would have done everything in his power to keep such a danger to his soul away from him. He’d keep it at arm’s length to prevent the carnage that he knew was on the horizon. But I’ve never claimed to be a smart man. Such prudence has no room in a life when it’s the heart taking the lead in every decision. Because no matter how hard I tried not to love her, so deeply, so irrefutably, from day one, I knew I was destined to be hers. My love-sick heart saw beauty amongst all the ugliness that lived and breathed in hers. I saw nothing but glorious light inside her tormented, dark soul. It’s not the worst sight to behold. Especially in a man’s final moments. Tied and bound to my spot, I take whatever little time is still afforded to me to admire my love. All the while knowing that the gun in her hand, pointed at my chest, is growing heavier in her grip by the second. All sound disappears as I get lost in the sky blue of her eyes. Ocean and sky. One cannot live without the other. Everything ceases to exist. It’s just me and her. Her pain. My love. She places a quivering finger on the trigger, a single tear running down her cheek, as she perfects her aim. My beautiful, vengeful monster. My hands grip the arms of the wooden chair, desperate to touch her and soothe her guilt. Her shame. But in the end, all I can do is keep my sights fixed affectionately on hers, silently encouraging her to do what needs to be done. “I love you,” I mouth silently, her lids squinting in grief at the declaration. And with a loud cry, my love, my heart, my very soul, pulls the trigger aimed at the heart that loves her.
‘I love you.’ Those are the last words Lincoln chooses to whisper, already forgiving me for the sin I’m about to commit. But there is no absolution. Not for me. And not for him. Because in the end… All evil men must die.
