Sign Your Name Tut (Animated)

Ok so this taggie is a bit special. It started as me playing with a kit for the heck of it but once I saw the wordart I knew what I had to do. My wonderful friend Ralf Straaberg drew this piece and he wrote a beautiful story to go with it. The inspiration for this tag then became the beauty of this tube and story. Again this is his story that I got from Deviantart not mine...

 Her heart dropped to the floor....she turned to him, just before she ran. He looked into her hazel eyes. Never had he seen such a deep and profound hurt before. He heard her sobbing all the way down the hallway. It pierced through his heart and soul.

He loved her.He loved Rose. He loved her more than he'd ever loved anyone else his whole life. He loved her smile, the soft lips, and long hair. He didn't care what others thought. could just go fuck themselves. He regretted being so mean. How could he have done something so cruel to the only one who loved him...loved this bastard for who he was and never questioned about his past.

He ran out to find her. He saw her...ran towards her...and then his heart shattered in pieces. There she was on the ground. The tears still on her cheeks. He wrists cut by two deep and angry cuts and in his hand he held her necklace he'd given her...a silver heart saying: Forever yours.

Beware this is one of those gory tags ;)
