Skylar's POV

The bitter cold of the darkness woke me.

Where was I?

I was facing down, shivering violently as heat leached from his body.

The tiredness and the near freezing temperatures of the dark were combining to rob the last vestiges of strength from me. Shivering took energy and I had none to spare.

With a massive effort, I rolled over onto my back, to find myself staring up at the brilliant stars blazing down from the jet-black darkness of nothing.

It was very sad, really. I'd just have to lie here and die, watched over by stranger stars that didn't know me, didn't care for me.

It was worth it, I told my wolf. We saved our mate. We saved Will. Every single ounce of pain is worth it. I accepted that I was going to die.

If not now, then certainly later. I would never last hours of freezing cold.

It was very sad, really. I would have cried about it but there was no moisture for tears.

The only sound that came from my mouth was a dry, choking rasp.

The foreign stars watched me and I watched them, wondering how long I'll last.

Suddenly, they seemed to be fading, their cold brilliance dimming.

That was unusual, I thought. Usually the stars kept burning till a brighter source comes.

Realization dawned on me. It was me who was fading.

After a while, I lay still, barely breathing, or rather- barely bothering to breathe.

Later on, I would think that I might have felt it but I could never be sure. In fact, it had registered with my wolf but I was too far gone to respond.

Then, a searing hot flame struck my neck, awaking me. But my eyes wouldn't open. But I didn't want them to. I could see the mocking twinkle of the stars through my closed eyelids, jeering down at me once again, and I didn't want lo face that.

Open them, my wolf commanded.

I tried to force my eyelids open but they were gummed shut in my face. I was vaguely surprised to realize I wasn't dead, but I knew it was only a matter of time before I would seep into another world.

Maybe, I thought, I was dead.

If so, this certainly didn't feel like any idea of heaven I'd ever been told about and the alternative wasn't pleasant to contemplate.

Wake up, my wolf ordered.

I didn't want to wake up, didn't want to open my eyes. The effort would be too great.

Funny, I thought, a few moments ago, I didn't have the energy to roll over. Now a simple act like opening my eyes was beyond me.

It would be easier to just lie here sleeping and fade away from it all.
