I Wish I Could... But I Can't...

As he walked onto the bridge, I knew what had to happen. My choices were down to two. Join him, or die. And there was no way in hell that I’d ever join him. Not that now he’s a vampire, and wants to kill everone, and rule the world.
Before…that’s different. Before, he wanted to stop vampires from doing what he wants to do now. Before, I loved him.
“Stop fighting me. You can’t win,” he said.I grabbed the edge of the bridge. I knew that if I let go, I would fall into the rapid waters about two stories under me. He looked at me, puzzled.
“Tell me one more time. Why do you want me to become what you are?” I asked.
“Because I want you. I will show you how it is to be this powerful. We can rule the world together. Just you and me. Please, I want you so much,” he said. I sighed. He said that he wanted me. Want. Not love. I looked at him sadly.
“That’s why?’ I asked.
“Yes. Please come to me. Grab my hand,” He said as he extened him arm towards me. A silent tear escaped my eyes.
“Wrong answer,” I said. I let go.
