Leon bit down on his bottom lip to keep from sobbing uncontrollably. "I'm going to save you", he whispered, his eyes pleading. The corner of Serena's mouth lifted up gently, her eyes soft and calm. "I'm sorry, Leon", she whispered back, her body relaxing at the pure sight of him. Leon burst into tears at that moment, his fingers tangling in her matted hair. Serena's eyes glimmered as she held in her own tears. "We'll see each other again", she promised, moments before her eyes closed again.
