Sorry I haven't been in touch much recently. I haven't been - the ship isn't - it's not -
I've not been in the mood. Systems are still running here on The Infinity, if not well then at least survivable. I'm not sure if I can say the same about Earth anymore.
J will be here soon. J will come.
I'll hold you [200 words, Jayden/Lyra]

"Jayden," Lyra cried, grabbing onto his arm. "It hurts."
Tears ran down her cheeks, mixing with the rain.
Jayden's hands were pressed against her stomach, trying to quench the flow of blood from the werewolf bite. She could see it trickling between his fingers, staining his brown skin a red so dark it was almost black.
"Lyra! Don't you give up on me, Lyra, not yet. I need you. Just hold on a little longer," he said, pressing his forehead to hers. It was a circle of heat in the cold numbness spreading through her. "Lyra, I've got you. The ambulance is on its way."
"I can't-" she gasped.
"You can, Lyra," he said fiercely. Teardrops clung to the tips of his long eyelashes. "You can do anything. You're stronger than you realise. I believe in you, Lyra Loch."
"We never even-" she said, thinking of all the missed opportunities, the almosts. They'd never even kissed, and now she was going to die.
"We will," he said, and she could feel his breath, soft against her cheek. "We will. This isn't the end."
Then she heard the sirens, and summoned up all of her strength. "We will," she repeated.
