How do you kill a hero?
A true hero.
A hero who has always been there to you – keeping you safe when no one else would put in the effort to give a damn.
A hero you love.
Will always love.
A hero who is not perfect, but one you believe you deserve.
A hero who must die so that you, the survivor, can live.
Bullets deflect –
Blades never seem to penetrate deep enough.
Like a ghost, the hero always rises – to save you.
The hero knows more. Gathering information, piecing together clues you ignore to prepare for…
The hero remains calm. To him, it’s the same story different day. He’s been preparing, training since childhood. Since…the bad thing.
Preparing so you would not have to. So you could stay.
Waiting to be saved.
But who saves the hero?
Does he need saving?
Does he deserve saving?
Or does he deserve to die –
A good death?
An honorable death?
So that you, the survivor, can live…
And learn to save yourself.
