Only Eternity Is Enough
Sometimes knowledge isn’t the power. Sometimes knowledge is a weakness. Sometimes you can know too much.
Especially when you’re the Time Master who knows what had happened, what happens and all the possibilities of what might happen, and your boyfriend has a massive hero complex which causes him to constantly risk his life for everyone.
Yes, you know he won’t get hurt much, but the time is a mysterious being, and even you, having studied it for too long to name a number, can’t fully predict which turn it will take.
Each time he fights there’s a possibility of a stray bullet hitting him in one of the so fragile parts of his half-human body. Each time he’s bleeding there’s a possibility he wouldn’t be able to stop it on time. Each time he patches himself up there’s a possibility of an infection that would bring him back to the grave he managed to escape by the skin of his teeth during the Lab Accident.
Sometimes, when you take a particularly close look at his possible futures, you can swear he’s got the most possible deadly paths of all the humans you ever watched. And that says something.
It’s like the Death is waiting for him at each and every coroner, trying to capture him, yet failing each time.
But you know it won’t stay that way for much longer. It’s how the things are; humans are born and humans must die.
That’s why you enjoy these rare moments you spend together, trying to make the most of them.
