Summary: 2187 days. That’s how long they’d been stuck in this hell. Not that they hadn’t deserved it. They both had killed the one that they had loved more than life itself, one accidental and the other unavoidable, erasing all hope and meaning in their lives. And what was hell, but the total absence of hope?

She dreams of him. It’s the only place he’s still real, in her dreams. She dreams of him and every time she does she holds her breath, begging not to wake up, begging to stay with him, sleep there forever.
But she always does. And she opens her eyes, and gets up. And all she ever really looks forward to doing is going back to sleep.

In addition to that she’d done something stupid (ok, more than one thing) and her only support had enough of her cold treatment.
Could her life get any suckier than that? Of course, it can. Didn’t she just say the Powers hated her?
