The despaired Lyle had his eyes glued to the departing ship with tears streaming down his cheeks.
Ironically, after betraying me for an affair with Crystal over the past few years, she turned her back against him when he needed her the most.
When I felt something on my hand, I lowered my gaze and caught Christopher weeping. Although he was unconscious, he couldn't stop tears from falling streaming down his cheeks.
I knew he was aware of the things going on in spite of being unconscious. He was upset I hadn't honored my promise of leaving him when he was on the verge of death.
I wiped his tears dry and kissed him on the forehead. “Christopher, you need to stop crying and start cherishing my presence! I know you're going to be angry, but it's your fault for hitting on me in the first place! There's no way I'm leaving you behind!”
As torrents of grief continued streaming down his cheeks, I raised my volume and warned him after wiping his tears on his behalf, “You're not allowed to cry! If you don't stop crying, I'm going to be mad for real!”
