Crimson Regret

He looked down at the blood that stained his hands, the tainted red pooling around his feet. His blood. As he lay there dying, lost and alone his final thoughts ran to her.

They had been so perfect, so happy together until it had all been taken away. An accident, they said. Drunk driver. How is that an accident? A drunken man crashes and walks away from the twisted metal that was once two cars, without so much as a scratch and Taya dies. She had been such a vibrant, happy person, his Taya. They had been due to get married in a week, until it was all so horribly taken away.

But he showed that man, that stupid man who killed his Taya. The man who took his life, he showed him. Showed him and killed him, the blood now staining his hands. He had wanted revenge, craved it, needed it until it ate him up and consumed him. He took his revenge in the form of the kitchen knife that sat on the floor next to him. His eyed wondered to the body that lay on the ground, eyes empty and angry in death.

This man was dead because of him. The man who killed Taya was now dead and he would be soon two. The blood dripped off his wrists and onto the floor, mixing with the blood of his victim. This wasn’t what he wanted. He wanted to be happy, to start a family and that man took it away but did he really deserve to die? For the first time since Taya was killed he started to wonder if he had done the right thing. This isn’t what she would have wanted. She would want him to be happy, to have a family, a life. Not this. He stared at the man’s body again and regret ran through him, replacing the thirst for revenge. He didn’t want this. But it was too late now. Too late for sorrow and regret, the man was dead and as the blood ran out of his body, he would be too.
