She's gone.

It's all he hears for weeks after her death, a constant reminder of the empty spot in his bed. It beats in time with his heart - she'sgoneshe'sgoneshe'sgone - and it nearly makes him want to give up.

He wasn't supposed to do this. He wasn't supposed to fall in love with someone, especially someone who knew how to play mind games almost as well as he did. He began doubting if he even knew her at all, and the sharpness of her memory started disappearing, fading into the background of something he never knew he wanted.

So he drinks like he can find her at the bottom of the bottles and eventually, he doesn't even know why he's drinking anymore. Everything's a blur without her and there are days when he finds it a little hard to breathe.

But the drinks make his dreams of her sharper, like she's there with him, so he keeps going until he can't anymore.
