“Take aim!”

“Hush, papa. Make peace. Hush and die quietly. This is the end.”

“No! Stop! I'm sorry-”


FIRE!

The rifles raged, spitting deathly lead. Tim felt his chest pierced, his bones shattered. Blood trickled down his chest. He winced in horrific pain and his body fell limp.

The black veil was pulled off of his head. He saw Omega once again. She put her hand on his cheek and said, “Rest in peace, papa. It's over. It's all over.”

Tim looked into her eyes. “I could have had you. I could have had a son and then a granddaughter- I-”

“Hush,” she whispered. “Say goodbye. Don't wish for more. Don't hope for better. This is the end.”

“You- you're an angel, aren't you?”

“Goodbye, papa.” Omega removed her hand. Tim watched her walk away, leaving him behind to die.

“Please! Don't go!”

She turned and said, “I must leave. It is time.”

“Just- just tell me what you are.”

Omega whispered, “I am that which haunts your every nightmare. I am the common thread binding every man, woman, and child. I am the shadowed specter of every end and the inevitable result of every means. I am the darkness ending all tragedy. I am the final act. I am Romeo's poison and Juliet's dagger. I am the setting sun and the darkening of stars. I am the assassin's gift. I am life's antithesis. I am Omega.”

As Omega left once more, Tim finally understood. He watched her fade away into the horizon of eternity. Tim drew his last breath. It was not laborious or painful. There was nothing to it whatsoever. Sensation, particularly pain, had long subsided. Feeling, however, remained, but not in any physical sense. Tim felt two things: peace and acceptance. It was as reaching the end of a book. All of the chapters are over; there is nothing left but to turn the page.

And so he did....
