"Poison me..." I could feel and almost hear my heart pounding against my chest. There was this very strained silence filling the room. I looked towards her and her face was pale. She almost looked sick by the thought of it.
"Maya... Please, take me out of my misery. I can't... I don't want to be here anymore." She sprung out of her chair and as she spoke, her voice sounded disturbed, "Charles, are you actually asking me this?" she started raising her voice and it was now one of anger. "What has happened to you? The old Charles was strong, he didn't give up on life because of a little heartbreak!"
"That's not it..."
"Then what is it Charles, huh? What's the
reason you're asking me to kill you?"
"It wouldn't be killing me if..."
"If what?" She clung onto my arms and looked straight into my eyes. I could feel her anger seeping into me as she leaned in closer.
