He searched for something, a pulse, a sign. Anything that would indicate she was still there, still alive. There was nothing. No pool of blood or tears to drown his sorrows, just a pit of emptiness in the bottom of his heart, a void that could never be replaced. Holding her weakened body closer to him, if possible, he left a sweet kiss on her forehead. A trail of dried tears stained his cheeks as he hummed softly to her in an attempt to bring her back. Beside her lifeless body lay an empty bottle. Unfortunately it wasn't the kind you'd keep your water in if you were going out for a quick jog. Nor the kind the milk man would leave on your doorstep. It was the type that you could only get from the chemist. One that you had to have a prescription for and even then you could only take a certain amount each day. This specific bottle once held many tablets, pills that were intended to relieve the pain. He knew there was nothing left he could do for her, there never was. Nothing could save her now. She was long gone, her body stone-cold her eyes rolled to the back of her head. He was too late. If only he would've arrived earlier..He scolded himself numerous times,before realizing no good would come out of it. No one was sure of what happened behind closed doors and Liam wanted answers. So many questions so little time. What could have possibly made her want to end her own life? Who would want to put her through so much pain just to see her crumble? Tess always seemed so strong, she would never let anyone get the better of her or take advantage. So what really happened? There was surely more to it. Something beneath the surface, that was yet to be discovered. Time was up; they were already here. Waiting for him to release her body ... ... middle of paper ... ... she was gone did he see all of these things. Maybe it was guilt taking over, because he wasn't there for her when she needed him the most. No, it couldn't be. Liam could no longer feel; he was in a sense, numb. The feeling of having your heart ripped out of you, being chewed up, spat out and walked all over was slowing starting to subside. Although, in that moment he knew he would never love anyone as much as he loved her. Even though he had denied his feelings for her more times than he could count, he knew deep down he had always felt such love and compassion for her. In time maybe they could be together. Dead or alive. Obviously she wasn't going to come back any time soon; maybe he'd have to wait until his time had come. But you never know what's around the corner. There's always something to live for. Always someone that loves you..even if they don't show it.
