“We all gather here today to say our final goodbyes to the ones we love,” said the priest as everyone stood in grassy field of a graveyard, their friend, husband, father, family, and caretaker, laid still in a casket, “We are here to see our dear friend, Blade, ascended into heaven and join with the father almighty.” Vanessa started to cry, tears flowing from her eyes, enough to make a second ocean. Fade, her son, hugged Lucy and his mother. His black fur blew in the slight wind, his black outfit and fox tail seemed to droop as he looked at his wife and children crying, the small hedgehog tail and cat fur shaking in sadness. Fade looked around, everyone he knew was here. From Ice, the blue haired girl with cold eyes and fox ears, to Nino and Shadow, standing at the edge of the casket looking down and saying goodbye. Nino’s skin was pale as the teenager placed his hand from his side and onto the casket. The man next to him, Shadow, was no human, but a lizard. They all knew it was since their shapeshifter friend liked to hide in plain sight.
People came through in lines, crying, saying goodbye. In the back of the field, dressed in black, stood Blue and Nai, “So this… this is what it’s like… to see creatures from other worlds in one place… to finally kill your foe… to… win?”
Nai looked at him and hugged him, “Isn’t this what you wanted? To kill him?”
“I thought I would be happier than how I feel now…” Blue turned away and walked off, Nai at his side, “The day the shadow died…”
Everyone soon walked away, leaving only the hellhound and Ice standing, “I’m… I’m sorry for your loss…” The hellhound had tears in his eyes as his flames grew brightly. The sun seemed to shine dully through clouds as the peaceful breeze swept through his black fur, “I… I knew this day would come… I feared so much for my master…”
“It… It will be ok,” started Ice.
“I… should have stopped him…. Should have… done… more…”
“No, you did what you could, I know,”
“YOU DONT KNOW!” growled the hound, his head whipped around and glared at her, baring his teeth in rage, “YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO GROW WITH SOMEONE, TO KNOW THEIR FATE, TO KNOW YOU CAN’T SAVE THEM! I SAW THIS COMING FROM DAY ONE! FROM THE DAY I MET HIM!” The black furred dog fell to the ground crying, whimpering for Blade.
Ice had tears in her eyes but knelt down next to him and gently rubbed his head, “I do know, I do know pain, loss… I lost my mother…. My father… my sister… sometimes…. Myself… but we can both get through it… it takes… time…”
The hound looked up to her and nodded before putting his head against her stomach and slowly drifted to sleep as the rain fell, playing the tune of sorrows.
