The air grew heavier with smoke. Garnet could feel the heat penetrating the tub. It would all be over soon and they would be together. He shifted so he could see her face. If he was going to die, he wanted to be looking at his one true love.

She was beautiful, even facing death. He traced his finger along her cheek. Why had he waited so long to tell her how he felt? Sweat beaded on his forehead, there was one thing he had to do before dying. He had to kiss her. No matter what the afterlife held, he had to kiss her in life.
Bending down he brushed his lips against hers. They felt like rose pedals surrounded in silk.

Kori gasped as if surfacing from a deep pool. She was alive!

Adrenaline pumping through his veins, he stumbled to his feet. He grew dizzy once again, but fought the urge to fall. He had to get Kori out of there. He had to save her, no matter the cost.

The flames had reached the bedroom door. Garnet looked around and grabbed two large towels. Wetting them in the shower, he gently wrapped Kori in one, while flinging the other one over his head and shoulders.

Picking her up, he ran through the house, letting out a warrior cry. No flames touched him, they didn’t dare.

He exited the house as firemen surrounded them with heavy blankets and oxygen masks. They tried to take Kori, but Garnet would not release his grip, carrying her to the ambulance himself.
As he laid her on the gurney her eyes fluttered open. He held his breath and she reached up and removed the oxygen mask.

“Garnet, I love you, too.”
