  1. >Be sitting at the side of a hospital bed.
  2. >You hear the soft beeping of a heart rate monitor.
  3. >Holding one of the front hooves of your decades long marefriend.
  4. >You’re both sitting in silence, enjoying each other’s company.
  5. >Her mane and tail have gotten gray now. Her beautiful coat is missing patches in some places.
  6. >You lean over and nuzzle the top of her head.
  7. “I love you.”
  8. >She looks up at you.
  9. >”I know.”
  10. >You just want to hold her one last time.
  11. >”Do you remember that one time we got into a bar fight?”
  12. “Yeah. That was a ton of fun.”
  13. >You pause.
  14. “That one guy was crazy strong though. I can never thank you enough for taking care of him.”
  15. >”Still got it.”
  16. >She says with a strained grin.
  17. >You both sit in silence again, until you finally loose it a little.
  18. “I’ll miss you.”
  19. >She shifts and runs her other front hoof along your cheek.
  20. >”You’ll be just fine. I promise.”
  21. >More silence.
  22. >It has been many days like this. Visiting her, talking about nothing, just hoping that you’d be able to spend her last moments together.
  23. >You ponder.
  24. “I suppose it would be too much to ask for you to stay forever?”
  25. >She gives you a somber smile.
  26. >”It’s not a fairy tale. This just isn’t how things work.”
  27. “Right…”
  28. >Silence again.
  29. >You used to like these quiet moments. Back when you both would just sit on a sunny day by the riverside, drinking a beer, simply enjoying the company. Now it just feels like you’re wasting time.
  30. “I’m sorry.”
  31. >She makes a face like she’s pretending to be annoyed.
  32. >”Shush. You know what I told you. Thank someone rather than apologizing.”
  33. “I know.”
  34. >She slowly closes her eyes.
  35. >”Thanks for staying with me. You’ve always been a card.”
  36. >The beeping turns into one long noise.
  37. >The tension in her muscles is gone.
  38. >Was this really your last conversation?
  39. >You just wanted to hold her one last time.
  40. >A nurse walks into the room.
  41. >She instructs you to walk outside as a number of other hospital employees crowd around Starlight’s bed.
  42. >You stumble outside.
  43. >Guess it’s finally time to put that piece of rope to some good use.
