I do not own Hunter x Hunter, nor do I own the cover image.
Takes place during that episode with the darts and Killua and Ikalgo, when they first become friends! That's when this takes place. Before Ikalgo takes him to the hospital and after Killua almost gets a fish dart in the head. Though this is an alternate ending for that episode.
There's a sudden feeling of dizziness in my head as more and more red soaks into my clothes.
The holes in my limbs and body are spilling the dark red liquid I've seen on my hands too many times to count.
But now, it isn't the blood of someone else. It's my blood.
It's never been my blood on my hands before.
My body suddenly refuses every command my brain is sending it and I collapse on the hard rock floor.
I try to lift my arms to pull myself away. I need to get to Gon. I need to get back to Gon.
My arms refuse to move, along with the rest of my body. The ground stained the ugly red color I hate so much.
I won't die. I can't die. I need to get back to Gon. I need to help them get rid of the ants. I need to help them get Kite back to normal.
If I die here, how would Gon find out? How would he know that I didn't just run off and betray him?
And what about Alluka? If I die here, Mom and Dad will keep her locked in the basement for the rest of her life. She'll never see the light of day again.
My head feels lighter and lighter as more of the sticky red liquid spills from my wounds.
I guess this will make Illumi happy. He doesn't have to make me one of his concerns anymore.
Maybe that bastard will finally leave Gon alone.
Maybe this will just motivate Gon to take out the Chimera Ants more.
Maybe it won't.
Maybe my death will be meaningless and forgetful. Maybe Gon will forget me.
No. Gon won't forget me.
I don't want him to.
I've had so much fun with him.
We've had so much fun with everyone.
They won't forget.
They can't forget.
My breathing grows shallower and shallower.
A sudden fear takes over my senses. I'm scared. I'm scared to die.
I terrified to die.
I wonder what it's like, but I don't want to die.
My last thought is an apology. An apology to Gon and Alluka.
I'm sorry Gon, sorry that you won't find out how this happened and that I never got to say a proper goodbye.
I'm sorry Alluka. I'm sorry that I left you in that basement for the rest of your life.
Far away, sitting in front of a campfire across from a Chimera Ant, Gon Freecss had a sudden feeling. A pang of loss and pain.
Tears began to fall down his cheeks, even if he had no clue as to why.
He quickly whipped out his phone and tried to call Killua. Gon repeated this action another five times before finally giving up.
Killua would call when he was ready to proceed with the plan.
