I stand on the bank of a river we said we would never cross again. Up above, it's Spring time in the land of the living, but I haven't felt alive in so long now. I know we said we wouldn't do this again. But you searched Heaven and Hell to find me before. Did you really think I could not do the same?

I know you made me promise, and I hate to break my promises, especially to you, but I no longer see any other recourse. I can't keep living without you, Xena, and I can't seem to find death easily. Besides, that's another promise you made me make, and it's easier not to kill myself or allow myself to be killed as long as I know we can be together again. I just have to find you.

We're meant to be together. We are more two halves of one soul than other couple I have ever known. You are my better half, and I'm coming for what's mine. I haven't found a way into Heaven yet, so I'll start down here. There's bound to be a pathway that leads up, or at least somebody who knows how to reach it.

I'm coming, Xena. You told me to keep writing, but I can't keep writing when I don't know what happens next. I'm going to find you, and I'm going to bring you home to me. And then we'll live my next story, as we're meant to, together.

The End
