The rain poured down around me, pounding through the dark night like a hammer. I had to beat it, I had to beat the wind. The icy drops stung my face but I resisted the urge to wipe them away. I thought; I love you. I think I was crying but I couldnít tell, for the darkness was pushing around me and the only thing I could force myself to feel was wet, not real emotion. Funny how you get your wish, just as you wish you had never wished it. Donít stop. I heard the screams ahead of me and grasped at them, but my fingers seemed to come up short. Keep screaming I thought. If they kept screaming, I would be sure they were alive, be sure that I could find them. I felt chief leap over something unseen, but the large horses hooves slipped on the wet ground, so I held onto his neck and felt the ground drop out from under us. Donít stop, Iím coming.
Donít Stop, I Love You
