"Bro? how come none of the other girls will play with me?"
"Because lil girl you're too cool."
He remembered the little girl with the original Strider shades that used to stand at his feet, he and Dave had taken her in after finding her digging through there garbage a few years back. (Name) didn't have many friends other then Dave all the kids labeled her as weird for no reason at all they just didn't like her so Bro always tried to keep her in the dark about her social deficiency she was being raised Strider she isn't weird shes cool.
"Bro? How come Dave doesn't like to hang out with me anymore?"
"Because lil girl you two are too cool you rival one another."
He now saw the young girl now a twelve year old still in her shades, busted up from the many strifes she had encountered so far in her young life. Dave one of her only friends was now abandoning her she was desperate to keep him in her grasp but he just drifted further. Being the good Bro he was he just told her it was nonsense and she believed him with all her heart her Bro never lied to her.
"Bro? Why am i so.....tired?"
"Because lil girl...you need rest."
He now looked at the 15 year old girl he had raised, a strife gone wrong she was just trying to protect her Brother, he was hurt and some fucker was gonna shove his shitty sword through him and just pick pocket him she couldn't just stand an watch not her Bro she'd save him.
Or so she though yes she had stopped the guy but in the process she now lay on the ground the sword through her own chest bleeding out on the concrete
"Your okay now right? You're safe were gonna be okay right?"
"Yeah (Name) were okay, were going to go home and were going to be fine."
"Bro I'm going to die aren't i?"
"Lil girl you're too cool to die."
He watched (Name)'s chest rise and fall now slower her breathing was becoming more labored,he grasped her hand he kept telling himself shes will be fine, she was gonna be ok she was always ok. (Name) reached out and touched her bro's cheek for what she knows is the last time
He tried to keep his facade he couldnt cry no matter what he was Strider
"Yeah lil girl?"
"I know its not cool but i know i'm not gonna make it but just know and tell Dave too i love you."
"We love you too."
One tear did happen to escape from under his ironic shades which were now fogging up "I'm gonna miss you guys, i promise ill hold a spot just for you guys wherever i end up." She laughed a little a raspy weak laugh her eyes then finally shut and she let out her final breath.
He pulled his sword out of her chest and picked her up carrying her home. When he arrived he got Dave he was devastated as he followed his brother into the nearby woods.
They laid her down in a field they knew she adored Bro took his sword stabbing it into the ground looking like a cross then finally he picked up her limp body and removed her glasses and set her down into the ground.
They both walked away completely silent until Dave piped up "W-what were her last words ?" "She said she loved us." Dave almost lost his facade but hardened his shell bro handed him the glasses she once wore he gripped them tightly regretting drifting so far from her. Bro couldn't help but remember all those times (Name) came home and talked to him about just everything always asking questions she knew he could answer.
"Will anyone miss me when i die?"
"I will lil girl, your bro will." ~
