WARNINGS: implied character death
Daniel’s died so many times he’s lost count, but this might be the last time. For phantisma.
don’t own… wish I did, but I don’t. No infringement intended.
Daniel tried to live his life without any regrets. He fought for justice where he could, looked for the truth in everything, and strived to understand the world and people around him. He was a good friend (he thought) and a good husband (he tried).
He knew he’d made his fair share of mistakes, but he thought, all-in-all, he didn’t stray far from the path of good.
That’s why he accepted his fate.
“What’s so funny? You think this is funny?” The guy said, waving the gun around.
On his knees, hands limply at his sides, there was no point in trying to fight. Even with all of Daniel’s training he’d never beat a bullet at point blank range.
Figures he’d go out like this. What he didn’t count on was that he’d die on Earth at the hands of a regular old criminal. Without his team around him. There’d be no coming back from this, no last-ditch miracle save. This was the end. At least he could say he did it with valor. He’d stopped the man from hurting a woman and her daughter. They ran away, Daniel wasn’t so lucky. But those were the breaks sometimes.
