Cool to the touch, the thoughts burned when they reached their way inside. He can feel a bit of himself giving way, wanting only to put one foot in front of the other. A promise of no more pain is a fortune. But he can’t.
…let Scorpius win.
If the half-breed wins, then – John doesn’t know. Doesn’t know himself at this second. The whispering voice is a beacon shining brightly.
The end of the tunnel.
He takes a step. And another.
The distance isn’t so great.
Murmurs take form and are more clear.
Clearer than at any other time.
A black smile greets him at the end and the cacophony of sound, explosions that sing his name to not give up fall away until there is just – Scorpius.
As promised the pain, his will, fades to nothing as he is left standing at his tormentor’s side.
