// My writing partner and I just killing our feels with sad headcanons on the death of Mina..
An elder Mina lays in his arms,
“Vlad…Do you think…we will find each other…again?” Mina’s voice is very soft and low, her heart beating slower with every beat. His words bring her comfort as she closes her eyes and smiles,
“I’ll find you….again…” Her small withered hand grew limp in his grasp, as a gentle breath passed from her parted lips.
Her once golden hair was white as snow now, and yet to him she was still beautiful, but so very fragile. He held her hand, the skin thin, blue veined and delicate, and listened to the slowing rhythm of her heart.
“ No matter how long or how far, I believe that we will find one another my love, for this is not the end.”
His voice faltered, and not for the first time, he considered whether it would be better to leave this world with her, rather than wait centuries for her to come again..perhaps their souls could remain entwined without the burden of bodies, or would he be forced to return anyway?
“ Don’t be afraid beloved, Wherever you are, my love will hold you. Time is nothing to those who love.”
Mina smiled softly, “I lov…” But her voice faltered and her body grew limp. Her soul left her body and was once more departed from her love.
But love would last forever, and it would be not be long before they would meet again, life after life…
Vlad tried to hold every last moment of her in his heart. Memories to last him.. he knew not how long.
When she finally passed beyond the veil of life, he let out a small cry, like some wounded thing, and gathered her frail body to him. He wept then, and after a while he carried her out into the garden, laying her among the roses that she loved.
He buried her there, and even after many years, came still to sit among the blossoms when he missed her most.
Or.. He waited there, for the sun to rise, and unflinching let it do it’s work, until nothing was left but white ash, floating gently down over her body, like a veil.
