A brief history blurb from a Mage character.  Not to be used IC, please!

We never talked about it
But I hear the blame was mine
Id call you up to say Im sorry
But I wouldnt want to waste your time

It was summer.  The fields outside of Fargo shimmered in the heat, the air hot and heavy with the lack of water that season.  He had murmured softly in her ear, speaking in their language - the words that Fritz could not understand.

"Do you remember the first night we met, Marcella...?"

cos I love you, but I cant take any more
Theres a look I cant describe in your eyes
Yes we could try, like we tried before
When you kept on telling me those lies

As the stepped out into the field, he allowed the telepathy to join them, his eyes meeting hers as he bent to brush her lips one last time.  With that, they seperated, moving silently through the fields.  The target was ahead of them, the sky already darkening as the Scelesti's words carried over the breeze.

"Germany...at my Aunt's farm...your Grandmother and my Aunt just knew that we would be perfect together...do you remember that?  What you said to me, when they told you?"

Do you remember...?

"You told me that you would never let them determine your path, you would never let another person determine your fate.  Do you still think they did...?"

There seemed no way to make up
cos it seemed your mind was set
And the way you looked it told me
Its a look I know Ill never forget

She shuddered as the snow began to fly around them, the world darkening in moments.  She could sense the two Arrow around her - Fritz to her left and him to her right...both of them slightly ahead of her, protecting the young Mage as best they could.

You couldve come over to my side
You couldve let me know
You couldve tried to see the distance between us
But it seemed too far for you to go.

"It isn't about them, you know...I love you because you are you.  You know that, right?"

Do you remember...?

She pulled her knives, shivering, waiting to see her target.  The goal was to neutralize them - with whatever means necessary...

Through all of my life
In spite of all the pain
You know people are funny sometimes
cos they just cant wait
To get hurt again

"I can't imagine my life without you..."

Do you remember...?

"Will you marry me?  I know now isn't the best time...but will you?"

There are things we wont recall
Feelings well never find
Its taken so long to see it
Cos we never seemed to have the time

It all ended before she'd really realized it started.  Fritz lying motionless to the side.  Her hands covered in blood...though she would never be able to tell you whose blood it was.  A dead scelesti before her, his chest opened as his blue eyes glazed over.

And him...her love...

She could hear the gasping from the wound, the wound that had laid his chest open.  He turned to look at her, his mouth moving as he struggled to speak, his hand reaching for her.  It was like moving in a dream, as she ran to his side, holding his head against her chest, murmuring softly in Romani.

"I love you dearest, I love you...I'm so sorry...I'm so sorry..."

There was always something more important to do
More important to say
But I love you wasnt one of those things
And now its too late

He grabbed her hand, hard, his eyes burning as he pushed his thoughts into her mind.

Do you remember...?

"Don't forget me...please..."
