He had been there for her, although she didn't know this yet, why wouldn't she be there for him?
It was his 13th body, they both knew it was coming, sooner rather than later.
But this was even sooner than they had wanted.
They had been hoping he could just age this body out naturally.
They should have known better. Neither of them were fated to die a natural death.
He was always there when she needed him, every time she called he was there, sometimes even if she didn't, and this was no exception.
It was an ancient tomb, and it was locked, how was she supposed to resist?
It happened so fast. The tomb was dark and something grabbed her as it opened.
Brakes in desperate need of fixing grated and light spilled into the tomb.
"And what sort of time do you call this?" she dropped the usual flirty line.
She used the distraction to break free, and then the fighting started.
Shots fired bodies fell.
Then River was backed into a corner, no way out. No way to avoid the gun pointed at her.
