Anon prompted: Giles; Why
Giles leaned forward and rested his head in his hands. Buffy was gone. Buffy had jumped. Buffy had fallen and Buffy had died. She said she had ‘figured it out’ and he wished she hadn’t. Because at least if the world had ended he wouldn’t have had to live without her. She was right, of course she would be right at the end, when he could not conratulate her. But that did not detract from the fact that she was right, the hardest thing in this world, truly is to live in it. Especially when the person you lived for has gone.
His mind was full of thoughts and feelings and pain. His chest ached, like the loss was fighting to get out. But all he could mutter was, “Why?”
So many questions in one word, so much unresolved. Never to be resolved.
