Just a one-shot I made out of boredom for all the Zane Truesdale fangirls. Title name is based on Evanescence's song, My Last Breath. Other than that, enjoy!

The night before he left Duel Academy, Zane and I made love. Probably the best night of my life; words couldn’t even describe it. He promised me that once I graduated, the two of us could be together forever. He gave me one last kiss goodbye, and was gone the very next morning.

A few weeks later, the gang and I were invited to watch his duel against Aster Phoenix. I was confident that he could win, but in the end, he fell to the hands of Aster. And ever since that night, he changed...

Hold on to me love
You know I can't stay long
All I wanted to say was I love you and I’m not afraid
Can you hear me?
Can you feel me in your arms?
I sucked in a deep breath. Today was the night that I would confront Zane, or as he was called now, Hell Kaiser. I left without the others knowing it. I wouldn’t be doing anyone any good if I were going to worry them.

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light it ends here tonight

I opened the door where Mr. Shroud, his former boss, had told me where to locate him. The door creaked and a loud noise was made as it closed. Lights shone down on me. I blinked a few times and looked up to see him. Zane “Hell Kaiser” Truesdale. He smirked down at me evilly. Just looking at him sent shivers down my spine.

I’ll miss the winter
A world of fragile things
Look for me in the white forest
Hiding in a hollow tree (come find me)
I know you hear me
I can taste it in your tears

“Zane…what happened to you?” I asked quietly, as quietly as snow that fell to the soft ground. The snow that would soon melt into tears.
“Nothing happened to me. This is the way I am,” he answered coldly as if mocking me. I glared up at him, feeling the old me rising up again. The cold and ruthless me before Zane fell into my life.
“That’s a lie. The Zane I knew was strong. You’re just a fraud. An onimodoki. A pseudodemon,” I growled. He smirked again.
“Whatever. You came here to duel. Well you’ll get one. But I will warn you, this duel…is a duel that you’ve never experienced before!”

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light it ends here tonight

I fell to my knees as my life points dropped to zero. Throughout the duel, those electrical braces that Zane forced me to wear had been shocking me. A hell duel. That’s what it was. No wonder why he converted to this dark side of his. Because of these electrical shocks…
I forced myself to let out a harsh breath as I felt my heart stop beating for at least two seconds. Too much energy drained from this duel. Honestly, I don’t think my body could hold out much longer.

Closing your eyes to disappear
You pray your dreams will leave you here
But still you wake and know the truth
No one's there

Zane walked up to me, eyes cold and relentless. I knew the consequences. I had to die. I lost. I promised to play by his rules. I was stupid enough to come here and attempt to save him and in the end, faced death in the face. I closed my eyes and looked down, hoping to disappear and not feel pain anymore. I failed to bring him back…

Say goodnight
Don't be afraid
Calling me calling me as you fade to black
“Claire…” a voice said. A familiar one. I looked up, surprised. Zane was back. The Zane that I knew and loved was back…
“Zane…you’re…okay…” I breathed out relieved, although, the truth was, I couldn’t find my voice. Was it because I was dying? Or was it because I was glad that he was back? I couldn’t tell which.
Zane held me tightly against his chest. It hurt, but it was a good kind of hurt. If I were to expire, I would be happy dying in his arms…But too soon he let go. He looked deeply into my eyes. I looked into his and saw sorrow.
“I’m…I’m sorry Claire,” he whispered, “I would never hurt you like that!”
I forced myself to smile at him, even though it was hard. “I know.” Was all I could say at the moment. I felt my eyelids beginning to close slowly… getting lower after each blink.

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light it ends here tonight
“Claire? Are you…alright?” Zane asked, worried, holding me tighter and closer.
“I feel so safe and happy right now…of course I’m fine… why would you ask that?” my voice softened and grew quieter as I spoke.
“You’re not…dying…are you?” Zane choked out, holding back tears. I closed my eyes briefly before opening them again. I looked up at him and gave him a small smile. I used the last of my strength to sit up and kissed his lips passionately. He eased into the kiss and kissed back with just as much passion. He unlocked the braces around my arms and neck, letting them fall to the ground. I wrapped my arms around his neck and pulled him as close to me as I could before I felt my strength leave me and I collapsed back into his arms, breaking the kiss and my hold on him. He looked down at me in shock as tears fell from his eyes onto mine, and down my face.
“ I love y…” I couldn’t finish. My eyes closed and I let out one last breath.
