Kyung looked back at the two pairs of red glowing eyes as they approached. When Aria was standing next to Kyung, he took her hand, lacing his fingers between hers, watching streams of red run down her cheeks.
"Are you sure?" He asked. Moments ago, she told him to let them go so he didn't stop Jun Myeon. He didn't like seeing her like this, he didn't like how he felt. He felt a part of himself slipping away the further Jun Myeon and Selene got. He squeezed her hand tighter, looking for strength in her face.
"It's what he wants. Who am I to deny him time with his child." Aria said, wiping away her tears of blood. She looked at him, at his sad eyes. She touched his chin, her thumb smoothing over his round cheek.
"Are you okay?" Xiumin asked, knowing how it must be tearing him apart.
"I have to follow her. Every part of me says, I need to follow. I feel like my insides are being torn apart…" Kyung cried, grabbing at his chest, looking pleadingly at Aria, "어머니…" He barely whispered, the words escaping his perfectly round quivering lips.
"Go, explain it to him, I am sure he'll understand." Aria said.
Kyung hugged her, hugged Xiumin and ran as far as he could to catch up to them.
Xiumin walked up behind Aria, slipped his arms around her neck, he nudged her head a little with his.
"Are you going to be okay?" He asked.
Aria looked sad, "if he comes back, then he comes back… maybe we weren't meant to be together." She sighed, her shoulders and head slumped a bit. "My little one is gone, who knows when I'll see her again…"
Xiumin hugged her tightly.
"Forgive me" he whispered into her ear.
A curious look flashed across her face, then she felt a sting in her neck as his teeth sank into her. He too strong, she couldn't move, he had always been there strongest. He drank and he drank until her limp body was hanging almost lifeless in his arms.
Why, she thought as her eyes closed.
Xiumin picked her up over his shoulder. "While Jun Myeon is off playing daddy, you and I, my dear have unfinished business."
Up into the sky he flew, he looked to the horizon at the coming twilight before he headed away into the dark. Knowing that one day Jun Myeon will come for her.
