« And the walls kept tumbling down in the city that we love, grey clouds roll over the hills bringing darkness from above. »

There’s a story about a City who loved a human once, and fell with him. It’s a story every City teaches the younger ones, to warn them.
The thing is that the world tends to forget that by killing herself Pompeii killed also her little brother. Herculaneum had lived in her shadow for centuries. He loved and idolized her more than anything. He washed her tears away when her lover passed away. He held her hand in her shivering nights. He begged her that morning. But as passionate lovers can be, she stand selfish in front of him, unable to live without love. She assured him that she will always love him but that his love for her wasn’t enough. She said it in front of him, not realizing that her decision would affect more than herself.
We still don’t know why he comitted suicide. Was it because he couldn’t stand to live without his sister by his side ? Or because he was horrified by the consequences of her act ? We will never know.
