Pairing: Mike Smith/Ryan Malone
Summary: Hold on to me love, you know i can't stay long. All i wanted to say was, "I love you and I'm not afraid" can you hear me? can you feel me in your arms?
Author's Notes: Takes place during the last part ofblueabsinthe's wonderful story 'Parentheses All Clicking Shut Behind You'. I kinda wriggled my story into the middle of the last bit of hers, therefore some of the beginning and end is written by her, and not me. Although I wish I could write that beautifully. Although I highly suggest reading her wonderful piece, I feel as though this could stand alone, so long as you know that Mike signed with the Coyotes in the off-season, and used a text message to notify Ryan of that fact. Hmpf. Men. Anyways, title, summary, and lyrics after the story are from "My Last Breath" by Evanescence. Thanks and enjoy!
Say Goodnight, Don't Be Afraid
