"What are we going to do?", she asked, entwining her hand with his.

"I dont know", he answered.

"Have you tried contacting the others?", she asked, exhausted.

"I cant get through, but I think Sandy might be able to"

She smiled and brought her lips to his. "Together", she whispered, "Forever".

"In death and life", he responded.
