I opened my eyes, and She was Death.

"You're Death, aren't you?"

"I am."

"Once every hundred years."

"That's right."

"Where am I?"

"You're awake now, that's all that matters. Rest, you need to recover your strength. We will have forever together."

I tried not to close my eyes, but they shut of their own accord.

I opened them to whiteness. My eyes slowly came to focus, and She was gone. I laid in a hospital bed, in a hospital room, in a hospital. My wrists were restrained.

My mother slept in a chair next to the bed.

"Mom?"

She was awake instantly.

"What am I doing here?"

"You tried to kill yourself." She brushed my brow. "You're okay now. We'll talk later."

"No."

"I'm sorry?"

"No I didn't try to kill myself. I suc--"

"It's alright. We'll talk later. There are some people here who want to see you. Are you--"

"No. Paper. Pen. Now."

She opened a bag beside her and pulled out one of Dad's laptops. "I can't let you. Dictate and I'll--"

"No. Give it to me. Stop playing games. Give it to me before it's gone."

"Which hand do you need?"

"Left."

She set the laptop on my thighs and unhooked my left hand. Microsoft Word was loading, but I went to the Start Menu and opened Notepad.

I opened my eyes, and She was Death.
 

"You're Death, aren't you?"
 

"I am."
 

"Once every hundred years."
 

"That's right."
 

"Where am I?"
 

"You're awake now, that's all that matters. Rest, you need to recover your strength. We will have forever together."
 

I tried not to close my eyes, but they shut of their own accord.
 

I didn't try to kill myself. I succeeded, but you brought me back. Why did you bring me back?

I saved the file, and noticed the laptop was connected to the local wi-fi. I opened a browser window and sent the file to a place of sakekeeping, before handing the laptop back and closing my eyes.

I felt her nervously restrain my left wrist, and listened to her type until I fell asleep.
