A war cry cleaves through the battlefield that was once a beach. I looked around, everyone was covered in blood and sand. No one was near me to say their final goodbyes, we were going to lose and lose badly. My enemy looked at me from across the  bloodied sand, "We can repair this." She screamed. I shook my head. It was impossible what was done, was too much to come back from. We had destroyed everything and everyone to defeat one another. I had once thought the world of her, how her beauty had astonished me, even in her sloppy astronaut suit. But no matter what we had done for one another, how the feelings had built up. None of it mattered. We had loved so deeply that everyone else was killed, for our crazed obsession was too much. 
We had loved even knowing it was the worst thing we could have done, she was my sworn enemy as she had always been and I was hers. 
A gust of wind blew my hair into my eyes, I swiped my filthy hand across it, smearing blood on my face. 
I shook my head and whispered, "This means war." 
Even though she may not have heard it, she read my lips. My chest heaved up and down, and I felt so helpless. It was the end of everything I had worked for.  I was done with this life, of war and killing; it had taken too much from us. If only things had been simpler we could have just been two girls, who had fallen in love. Took a vacation to this god-forsaken beach, and applied lotion to one another affectionately. But no, that was not how things worked out for us. 
A rain drop fell upon my cheek, and everyone paused for a moment, it began to pour. The world mourned for us and with us. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. The world slowed, and my ski jacket pooled with blood. 
"Its over. I am so sorry my love. I am so sorry" She sobbed
