A one-shot where a girl finally is able to thank the man she loves. Rated for mention of self-injury and a suicidal theme.
I hear someone call my name but I can’t get up, my legs are too sore from the cuts in them. I whimper softly, trying to swallow so I can call back that I am busy but then I hear the footsteps, loud in my realm of quiet darkness.
The door to my room opens and light floods the air around me, causing me to clench my dark eyes shut and bury my face in my pillow. I feel the weight of someone on the bed beside me, their gentle hands taking my own and pulling my arms away from me.
“What have you done to yourself, little one?” They ask softly.
“I don’t know... I don’t know anything anymore.” I reply, feeling tears well in my eyes as my vision begins to blur.
“Well that simply can’t be true... What day of the week is it?”
I don’t respond, I won’t let them win.
“Please talk to me... I don’t want to lose you too...”

They tighten their grasp on me, rubbing my back soothingly as I rapidly weaken. I lose the feeling in my legs, the numbness slowly creeping up my body to my torso and arms. As I lose the sensation of their hand against my back, I look back at them through half-closed eyes.
“Are you my guardian angel?”
Their voice is shaky. “Y-Yes... Yes I’m your guardian angel. I’m going to look after you.”
“Will you be there? ... Wherever I go?” I whisper.
“Yes. Yes I’ll be there, I’ll always be there.”
I look up weakly and manage a smile. My eyesight clears enough for me to realize who it is holding me. I never thought I’d see this particular person in such a vulnerable state, especially not around me. But of course I never suspected that I’d kill myself either.
I look up at him, into those beautiful blue eyes that have been stuck in the back of my head since we met. “Thank you...”
“For looking after me,” I whisper before my eyes drift closed and I fall limp. “Robbie...”
