He leans his head back and although she can't see him she can feel his breath on her neck. "I need you to promise me something," he whispers.
"Anything," she says, her heart pounds in her throat.
"I need you to promise that you won't fight them." He says and she wants to scream at him. She wants to hit him and make him understand that she doesn't want to walk out of this hell hole by herself but she can't tell him no. She nods and fights back tears," I promise."
He seems to relax against her," thank you."
She moves her head just enough that she can feel his temple against her own," can you promise me something?"
"Maybe," he says coughing weakly.
"I need you to promise that you're gonna fight. You can't just die, okay?" She says and she can feel her tears slipping out from under her blindfold.
He moves, maybe it's the blood loss or maybe it's the fact that he can't stand to see her cry, towards her. As much as his aching body will allow, in the end his twist his body tell it hurts, and captures her lips. She taste like tears. "I promise," he whispers against her lips.
