Artist's Description

We leave the shack in the early dawn, watch the colouring of the sky as we drive east before turning south, to the city. Silence between us, no need for words. That he is here beside me says it all.
He thinks he can do it a second time, save me. Thinks his blood can be transfused into mine and make my immune system strong enough to fight the sickness or at least buy me more time while they work on a cure. Perhaps he’s right, but the odds are against me. By the time it manifests on the skin, I think the sickness has got itself pretty well embedded.
The rising sun sets the sky on fire and so a new day begins. The radiance permeates everything. This is life, I tell myself, and I am alive. I glance at the corporal. A look, a nod from him. I lean back into the seat, bask in the glow. I can fight this battle with him and we might even win.
