Levy ran as fast as possible in the corridors of the hospital.
She dodged skillfully patients and colleagues with precision, attracting only the attention and surprise of those who saw her run. She had to hurry.
She had to go to him.
He’s been waiting for.
She hoped with all her heart that there was still a possibility and that the disease had not made the situation worse.
It was only thanks to him that she had found a cure.
She had to him.
She glimpsed from afar the isolation room for contagious diseases. Levy stopped right in front of the mirror that separated the room from the rest of the world.
He stood there.
Sitting on the bed, staring at his hands with dull eyes. She knocked off the mirror, awakening him from his state of the trans.
When he knew he made a melancholy smile. He walked toward the glass wall holding the aflebo. More he approachedmore the hopes of Levy disappeared: he was pale as a corpse, thin and weak. His face was dug and the skin was starting to dry up.
The only thing you could see were large patches of blood under the skin.
The disease had reached the last stage. Levy looked at him shocked and speechless.
She did not know what to say. She felt terribly guilty because she had not been able to help him heal, but he had thought only to create a vaccine for the other patients.
- “Gajeel … I …” -
- “Were you able to heal others? Vaccine worked?” - Asked with curiosity and concern.
Even in that critical situation, he was not worried about himself, well yes but for others.
Levy could not hold the tears.
- “Gajeel! I’m … I’m so sorry! I have not had time to take care of yourself I thought only the other patients, to create a vaccine as soon as possible to care for all, while you’re here … you you’ve always helped and encouraged me to keep going … you who have subjected to terrible things in order to find an answer … and now … it’s not fair!- she said in tears.
Gajeel leaned his forehead and his hand on the mirror and breathed a sigh of relief.
- “Now everyone can save … luckily” -
- “Stop thinking always to others while you’re gonna die! * Sigh * do the selfish for once! Be angry! Blames me! * Sigh * … cry ..” -said furious.
Gajeel smiled back at her.
- “Levy you do not have to blame for anything. Our goal from the beginning was to find a cure, not heal me. And now you’re finally successful, thus giving a second chance to those who are sick out there. I am just one of many who can not see the future with his own eyes, but I am happy to die knowing that others will be able to participate. “- Said quietly.
- “How can you be happy to die?” -
- “When I showed up here the first time I had already put in mind that I’d be dead … is not new … I’m sure I would have died even earlier if you were not always optimistic and hopeful … this is thanks to you I managed to live so long Levy …so..Thank you”-
