Charlie could feel it, the slow sinking, the giving in. His heart was fighting, was pounding, but it was pushing pointlessly. With every contraction it just pumped blood out of his body. With every contraction it lost strength.
He was dying.
Duncan came running to his side, his weight made the floor vibrate. Didn’t matter. He was saying something, was maybe even shouting, but he didn’t get through. Charlie couldn’t decode the sounds. Didn’t matter.
He was loved. Accepted. Valued. The one thing he had always been afraid of had been dying lonely. And now it didn’t matter.
