Lisa was pale, the skin around her eyes colored with fatigue. She must have been standing there for a hour at least, the entire duration of the surgery that Stacy had told her not to watch. It wasn't going to do any good, sitting here like this with raw deliberation running through her veins. If Lisa kept watching, waiting, and trying she was going to drive herself mad. There was no easy way around what had happened.
If all of your friends were jumping off a bridge, would you jump too?

She knew that he hated her.
When his eyes opened, the normally sharp gaze foggy with post-medicated delirium and a childish bit of hope, she could hardly stand to see it. The mind was apparently an extraordinary thing and often times senses betrayed what really was. He probably didn't know anything was amiss, not yet in this blissful cloud of unknowing.
Were she in possession of time's control, if she had been able to Stacy would have touched her fingertips to the second hand, freezing this instant forever. Where he was alive and free of pain, before he realized what he would inevitably know. She wanted him this way, when hurting didn't exist and he still loved her.
He wouldn't love her soon. Not immediately, but over time. She knew that, knew what she was signing in scrawling, scratching waves across a precisely typed page. And Stacy would still remain true to the belief that she had no other choice. It was going to ruin their relationship but save his life, and the choice had to be made.
It really was abundantly clear.
The tissue crumpled tighter in her hand, and then Stacy waited. She waited and watched as the look in his eyes began to change.

The room was dimly lit, and she'd done that on purpose. The raw, perfect light of not candles but as best that could come from hotel room conditions. He was closer than her next breath and further away than childhood dreams, the lingering taste of familiarity burning across her mouth.
OOC: Mun’s Turn- Here’s your chance to sound off about that muse in your head that drives you crazy, makes you ride an emotional rollercoaster, demands things happen their way even if you wanted to do something different with their storyline and all those other things our little darlings do to us, their slavishly devoted typists. Remember to post this as OOC (out of character).

It wasn’t that she didn’t want the same things he did. The opposite statement held true, and that was why she could make that sort of choice. When confronted in the reality with the stark understanding that time was of the essence, that there was no other option, that doors had been closed with harsh force directly in her face, there was nothing more she could do.

It was getting away that was the hardest. Running was easy, but making any sort of advancement into a new life was the part that was impossible. It felt like an uphill battle, something she couldn't escape if she wanted to. And going in circles was even worse still. It was the same sort of uphill theory, but not getting anywhere made it harder and she didn't know when it would end.
