They dreamed of each other’s past lives in their sleep.
Like a movie, the events of their lives slowly played out in front of their eyes. Diarmuid witnessed her uncanny transformation from a gorgeous human being to a monstrous creature while Medusa watched his youthful days with the Fianna and his legendary flight with Ireland’s most beautiful woman.
The moment the young and mighty hero sliced off her head and the fangs of the vicious boar bore into his abdomen, they were jolted back to their consciousness. Panting, they turned to look at each other with tear-brimming eyes. In the cold silence of an autumn’s night, they embraced each other’s sweated bodies with a force strong enough to drive away the horror of losing each other.
