Best friends don't let best friends die. I'm sitting by her hospital bed. Best friends don't let best friends die. She's hooked up to too many machines, and her breathing is mechanical and it smells like fucking bleach in here, best friends don't let best friends die.

My magic won't work on her, but I refuse to give up; it's only been two days.

Best friends don't let best friends die.

I'm just gonna rest my eyes for a second. Only a second. She'll still be here when I open them...

"You need to go home," says Tristan. He sounds like he's at the far end of a very long tunnel; that's how everything sounds these days. "Even her parents and Cael have agreed to go home to get some rest. You have to admit, Cara, it's been three days and your magic has done nothing. Nobody's magic has done anything."

"No," I whisper, opening my eyes. "I can sleep here."

"Cara," he says, a warning in his voice. "I'm stronger than you. If I have to carry you out of here I will."

But suddenly things begin to go crazy.

The steady Beep, click, whoosh, beep, click, whoosh, of the machines keeping Khiara alive turns into beep, click, beep, beep, beeeeeeep.

Nurses are running into the room. Tristan is dragging me out.

Best friends don't let best friends die.
Best friends don't let best friends die.

But I did.
