Hand in hand, the couple ran through the burning streets, cautious of the dead bodies that were scattered on the road. The two managed to stay alive since the judgment day arrived. "Tommy!" Annie cried as she dropped to her knees. "I can't go on anymore, please just... No more," She said as she toppled onto to her hands and started wailing.

Tommy stood a few feet in front of Annie with a panicked expression. "Baby, you can do this! We've made it this far, we can make it!" Tommy said trying to convince her to get up. Annie looked back up to Tommy and saw his hand extended to her. The two of them were being chased down and if she didn't get up now, they'd both die.

Annie began to stand up, reaching for Tommy's hand as she did. Her hand didn't make it to Tommy's though. A flaming arrow was shot through it and after taking a moment to realize what happened, she let out a blood curdling scream. "Tommy," She cried as she took a step closer to him.

Tommy looked baffled by what had just happened and tears were streaming down his face. Another arrow was shot, directed at Tommy this time. Annie was quick enough to get to Tommy and nudged him out of the way. The arrow shot through Annie's stomach and out through her back. Tommy had fallen onto the ground and watched Annie's blood drip down the arrow. The end of the arrow was only inches from his face and he backed away from it. "Annie...?" Tommy said as she dropped back onto the ground. "Annie!" Tommy said as he scrambled around to face her.

Blood was starting to pool around Annie and blood was seeping from the corners of her mouth. "You need to go..." Annie said holding onto the arrow that was lodged in her stomach.

"No, no, no, no, I can't leave you here to die," Tommy said as he grabbed onto the arrow. "Take a deep breath," Tommy said and once she did, he pulled the arrow out of her body. She cried out in pain and now clutched at the open hole. "I can save you," Tommy said trying to convince himself of that as well. He removed his sweater and put it in place of her hands. He placed her hands back on top of her sweater and held his over hers.

Annie smiled at her boyfriend and shook her head. Hot tears poured down her face and tried to be okay with this moment. "There's no saving me, and I don't have much time left. You have to go and keep living," Annie said trying to convince him to go.

Tommy shook his head 'no'. Annie looked around at their surroundings and saw more of hell's angels walking towards them. "Tommy! Go! I can't be saved anymore," Annie said pushing Tommy away from her.

Once Tommy looked around he began panicking. He sat up on his knees and nodded slowly. "I love you, Annie," Tommy said as he gave his girlfriend one last kiss. He stood from the ground and ran off. Annie watched him leave and instantly regretted it. She didn't want to die alone.

"Don't go..." Annie whimpered to herself as she curled up into a ball. She heard the footsteps of hell's angels walking towards her. Why wasn't she going to heaven? She sacrificed her life for someone else's. Annie turned onto her back slowly, trying to cause less pain. She figured that doing so, she'd be able to just choke to death on her own blood before they reached her.

Her vision blurred, but she knew they now surrounded her. A sword was held above her chest and her hands clutched onto Tommy's sweater. 'I guess this is it,' Annie thought to herself. 'I don't get to go to heaven.'

In one swift move, the sword came down, but before it could pierce through her body, she was surrounded by a warm white light. Her body was lifted from the ground and she felt weightless. There was no more pain. Annie's eyes fluttered shut. The light was too bright for her eyes too handle.

Annie had no idea if she died or not. It didn't hurt like she thought it would.
