Reality vs. Eternity

Auvrea looked at Martin, a tear nearly came to her eye. Looking into his eyes, she saw herself and him. She looked down, then back. "Yes." She lifted a hand to his cheek. "But, you do know..." She choked on her words, refusing to speak them. "I will live forever." She looked at him.

The reality hit her hard, it was true, not even love could stop the fact that he would die, she would not. She was sure, that if a tear did fall from her eye, that, that one would last forever.

"After all forever, is a very long time."

The End
