Summary: Two lovers have a confrontation in the moonlight.
Disclaimer: I do not own Sanctuary.
The moonlight floods the room, and the glowing sliver is the only witness to their tribulation.
Her eyes slice into him like knives; a cruel irony considering his own bloody blade.
"Why don't you kill me like you killed those other girls?"
John flinches at the fury in Helen's-his Helen's eyes.
He sputters when his voice fails him. "I c-c-couldn't. I love you. I love you forever, Helen."
Her eyes glisten with tears, and he has the sudden impulse to wipe them away. Of course, he would be denied.
It was all the more painful because it was the truth.
