Chapter 1: Repercussions of the Jump.

Sky's point of view.

I was dead. Okay, not yet, sometime soon... But close enough, you know? The once torrential rain was merely pattering against my cheek, my weary eyes glued on the soaked clothes I was wearing. I watched as the rain carefully cleaned the evidence away, blood mixing with water to flow away... 'Damn. This is taking a long time.' I shifted weakly, my body spasming, my muscles refusing to respond. A dim rumble against the ground was picked up by my ear, against the rough concrete and I closed my eyes, not sure quite how much longer I was going to be able to ignore the dull ache inside me. 'Goodbye.' I would have said the word aloud, only there was no-one that cared to hear me, and my tongue was stuck against the top of my mouth anyway. I sighed, the release of air roughly escaping my lips and making me wince. I felt the unconsciousness finally reaching up to meet me, and I regarded it with apathy. 'Death.' I thought the word quietly, not sure quite what I was expecting. I'd searched for a way to it for so long. I'd wanted it for an unidentifiable amount of time. I would have rolled my eyes at myself, but even thinking was becoming a struggle I didn't intend to fight. I felt as though my body was being lifted, and a smile flitted across my lips. The rain no longer affected me, a warmth starting from my back and slowly spreading through my body. 'And they said death would be uncomfortable...' I mentally snorted. Even so... I had difficulty recalling who 'they' were, and so I gave up, beginning to slip into the darkness. 'Death...' I began again, feeling as if I were writing a report rather than dying on the cold, wet pavement of some city at some unreasonable hour. 'Death is easy, it's simple... I don't have any papers to fill out, either.' I felt the warmness all through my broken body now. It wasn't that bad, and I couldn't feel much of anything. 'Nowhere to sign my name...' I felt a smile creep across my lips- the last-I tacked on mentally, and then I gave in to the oblivion.

It was like sleep. Death, that is. I think it would sound wierder to someone normal than to me, but in death, I was at peace. I'd found what I was looking for.
