I'll Stand By You

By Hayden


11 am.

Hayden sighed and closed her eyes again. She moved around trying to get comfortable, which was hard with Rimfire's arm draped across her like a dead weight.

She looked at the clock again.

11:01 am.

She sighed again and looked at the sleeping, mouse beside her. The vampire beside her. He seemed so peaceful, yet so sad. A blood tear was dried on his fur. Haydy gave a half-smile and reached over to the clock radio. A familiar song came to her ears.

Hayden looked sadly at Rimfire again.

Oh, why you look so sad? Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now.
Don't be ashamed to cry, let me see you through
Cause I've seen the dark side too.

She pressed a gently kiss to his forehead. Nothing would wake him she knew. Those golden eyes, once brown, wouldn't open till night fell.

When the night falls on you, you don't know what to do,
Nothing you confess could make me love you less
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you, won't let nobody hurt you,
I'll stand by you.

It was hard for even her to believe that she had stood by him through this all. Haydy had always seen her self as something of a coward. But it was hard not to want to stand by his side through it all. She just wished he'd let her know what he was going throughfeeling.

So, if you're mad get mad, don't hold it all inside,
Come on and talk to me now.
And hey, what you got to hide? I get angry too
But I'm alot like you.

Sometimes it made her so angry that this had happened to him. What had Rimfire done to deserve this fate? She hated Damion so much for putting Rim through this. For making, him decide. Though Rim wouldn't admit it, he had a choice between immortality and trying to get is mortality back. And sometimes she was afraid the vampire was winning out. But even if it did, she'd stay by him. Even if it killed heror

When you're standing at the crossroads, don't know which path to choose,
Let me come along, cause even if your wrong
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you, won't let nobody hurt you,
I'll stand by you.
Take me into your darkest hour, and I'll never desert you.
I'll stand by you.

Hayden warped her arms around Rim, resting her head on his chest. She wished she could make him understand that she'd never leave him.
"I love you Rimfire.."

I'll stand by you, won't let nobody hurt you. I'll stand by you
Take me in into your darkest hour and I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you.

I'll stand by you..
