The pill

"Just one-step away", he said - "to hell or heaven." She raised her head to look at him and asked, " Do you think I can live without you?" They both knew the answer. It was redundant to explain. He laughed for the last time. The night was eerily quiet and unsettling.

In a glance, she understood him and extended her hand for another pill. In a flash, before they could change their minds, before anybody could stop them, they gulped down, one each. In a few minutes, they hit the ground with a thud, awakening the rest of the world.

No, the world did not deserve them.
