84 I Will Not Bow

“I can’t do this anymore,” Naomi panted, as they dropped to their knees behind an overturned dumpster.  “Oh, God, I can’t do this.”

James grabbed her shoulder and yanked her towards him, so that their faces were an inch or two apart.  “Yes you can,” he said, with forced calm.  “You have to, Naomi.  If you don’t do this, we’ll both die.”

She shook her head viciously.  “It’s just too much.  I can’t.”

“It’s been too much for days,” James said.  “At some point it will end.  We just have to hold on.  Can you do that?”

Naomi nodded once.

James Knox and Naomi Williams.  Original characters.
