The average human being lives to be about 80 years old. The average shifter lives to be 125.

Zaq and Bobby met when Zaq was 19 turning 20, and Bobby had just turned 18. They dated for two, nearly three years before they got engaged. They purchased a cafe, which they owned and ran together. Two years afterwords, they got married. A year or so after that, their daughter was born.

Seventeen, not quite eighteen years later, Bobby got into a car accident.

On the day of their wedding anniversary, Bobby was rushing home from the cafe. He knew Zaq had something planned, and he was close to being late. Zaq was a prompt person, so he didn't want to spoil the evening and rushed, not stopping at a stop sign. He was hit by another speeding car.

It wasn't a fatal car accident, but it might as well have been. The forty-three year old human suffered massive trauma and ended up in a coma. After several CAT scans, it was determined he was brain dead. Even if he physically recovered, he would never wake.

Before Bobby, Zaq had gone from one abusive relationship to the next. Everyone he has ever "loved," hurt him purposefully. The only exception was Kegra, whom he wasn't really involved with.

It was his first good relationship, and the two had such a simple, elementary compatibility that it stayed that way for two and a half decades.

To have it end so abruptly was tragic enough. It was enough to break Zaq's spirit and make him numb inside. Except, it wasn't just over. Bobby's heart was still beating, but he was gone.

They expected Zaq to be the one to man up and give the okay for them to cut off the life support. They expected him to give them the okay to kill Bobby. They expected him to be strong enough to let go.

He couldn't. He simply couldn't.

As much as he loved his child and loved his life, he could not let go of Bobby.

Rather than drag it out and torture all off them, he sat his daughter down and explained this to her. Lei wasn't even eighteen at the time, but as Zaq spoke to her, she realized what he was getting at quickly. Hugging him, she promised that she'd take care of the shop and that she'd always love him and her papa.

He told all of them in his own way. He said he was leaving, and he apologized. Cenas and Rekon understood. Kegra went into denial about it, convincing himself that Zaq was going on a vacation.

That's a story for another time though. In the end, Zaq made peace with his loved ones and then joined Bobby on the other side.


NOT CANON! \owo/ WHOO~ Hin killed Bobby off, so I turned around and wrote this. It upset her so much that we agreed it wasn't canon. Zaq gets his lifetime with Bobby and the two pass on together in their sleep. Epic. Cheese.

Also, since it is no longer canon, I didn't bother to edit and add in that they have a second child. Two years after Lei is born, they adopt a son.

So, even /if/ they did this, Lei would have a big brother she could depend on. Zaq is still a horrible parent.

Enjoy the feels. \owo/ xD

I've never read the original story but this practically brought me to tears. I feel so bad for Zaq. That's a horrible way to lose the person you love.

It was written really well. Good story. Where is the original story?
Muzica-chan's avatar
In all honesty, it is the worst way I can imagine. It's like choosing to say goodbye.

Thank you so much. Unfortunately, the original story is still a work in progress.

Aww well whenever the original is posted I would really like to know. This short story wa very moving and brought tears to my eyes.

This is a canon pairing? From what?

I love the concept of it all, I love their love, I love how they complimented each others eyes...This has probably got to be the best thing I've read in all my life, and I speak of that from the heart and soul. It was so touching...if only I had a boyfriend like that, and at the end...when Zaq cut off Bobby's life support machine...and took his own life, it was just like the real, modern version of Romeo and Juliet...I just wanted to cry, at it all. You couldn't have written this any better. Thanks for this spectacular piece.

Usually, I'm a tough cookie, but you've cracked me.

:XD: It is an original pairing written by my friend *Hinfallend and myself. They are, eventually, going to be in a multi-book series.

Out of all of the pairings I have, Zaq and Bobby are by and far the most dependent on each other. [link] This piece sort of explains their dependency on each other and why they are so wrapped up in each other.
I am so intensely flattered by your praise. Like, I've never felt so complimented before. Thank you. <3

xD I tend to get misty eyed when I reread this piece. I poured a lot of angst into it.

No problem :)

By the way, it there any pictures of this couple, and maybe their family and friends? I'd love to see what they look like.

I shall praise this forever, don't you forget it
:worship:~Muzica-chan is god!

[link] This is some of the art I have of them. Friends have drawn fan art, and I have commissioned some pieces. xD

>w< I'm so flattered. I cannot even. Thank you

Ahh, they're such a cute couple. They deserve each other. I take it Bobby's the one with the Blonde and blue longish hair?

No problem. After this amazing piece you've written, you deserve to be flattered.

Zaq is the one with longer hair, while Bobby has the short gray hair. The redhead male in some of the pictures is Kegra, while the female is Cenas. The black haired male is Rekon, while the black haired female is his daughter Trinity (not in many of the pictures). Lei, Zaq and Bobby's daughter, is in the picture with Trinity. [link] There is more of them. xD; I am actually sorting all of the art I have of them now.

>///< My head is going to get so big if you keep talking to me like that.
ImChangingMahName's avatar
Wow, you got quite a nice cast of characters there.

Well I won't stop talking like that to ya until you're famous, so suck it up, buttercup! xD

*talks to your head* grow, my pretty, grow!
