Author's Notes:
Companion piece to drabble "I'd Rather Be with You," which in turn was spawned from an LJ prompt by onabearskinrug.

"I'm not here because I am supposed to be here or because I'm trapped here, but because I'd rather be with you than anywhere else in the world."
-Richard Bach, The Bridge Across Forever

I don’t want to go.

I am only starting to understand what kind of man I am, letting go of my peoples’ prejudices, coming to terms with their loss, and feeling my true age.

Why must the price of wisdom be so precious?

She may return, against all odds.  My beautiful, brilliant, pink and yellow Rose, the Bad Wolf, my Protector.  She has saved me; will always save me.  As the golden threads of fiery energy consume me, I think only of her.  Would she still know me, love new new new me?

"I don’t want to go."
