our stories seem a lot more like tragedies now

Work Text:

it would have been funny

had it not been so unbelievable

had it not have actually happened

had it not been so ridiculous

that they wouldn't die

at first

but just

when things were looking up

just when things seemed to be growing better

they came

again

 

it's a sort

of dry humor

then

since miki never wanted to live

never wanted to leave

so why

why

w h y

is she still here

while

kei,

someone who dared

to hope

is not?

 

with

megu-nee's love.

what

bullshit.

'megu-nee's love'

if she did love them

why are zombies here?

why is kurumi dying

this slow

slow

slow

painful death

because of her?

'megu-nee's love'

she says it

the lie

burning

her tongue.

 

being delusional

does not translate to weak.

she just

prefers

this different reality

to the real one.

in this reality

megu-nee does

love

them

she still does

in this reality

they're all

alive

and though they don't say it

they want to live

in her reality

too.

 

being strong

is this fickle thing

it's easy to lug around

a giant shovel

and pretend

you're all that

but it's so much else

to actually be brave

actually be a hero

and kurumi has

no

idea

if she is

or isn't

but that's okay

as long as she can

pretend

really

really

well

 

it's not freedom

if you're still in a cage

and miki can't see that

and kei knows it

and so she leaves

and so she dies

and so the last word she whispers

'miki'

 

her final promise

that she does

want to keep them safe

really

she does

but

it hurts

so much

and she's selfish

so

so

so

damn

selfish

but she wants it to stop

wants it to end

so she seals herself away

hand ghosting over the cross

(ironic,

isn't it,

how this

will be the last thing she ever sees,

in a zombie apocalypse

where the hell is god

in this

apocalypse

this hell on earth?)

yuki

yuuri

kurumi

live

she scratches

into the book

with her dying breath

praying to whatever god may be

that they never

ever

ever

see it

 

 

our stories

seem

a lot more

like tragedies

now
