The last nineteen seconds

He felt her slip her hand into his.
Becoming again, that same girl in the playground who punched someone out for picking on him.

She shifted closer to him, and he could smell her shampoo and the fruity body spray from Victoria Secret.
Blood on both their hands now-
She lifted her eyes, just a little, to look at him for a moment before looking back at her boyfriend.
No, ex-boyfriend now wasn't it?
Now that her bullet was in his stomach and there was another in his head.

He put a finger to his lips and smiled, and she smiled back too.
And that,
was all that mattered.
