Trifextra challenge Ninety-two, Farewell

It was actually the 20th of February that this scene played out

Trifextra: Week Ninety-Two

Trifextra challenge

"It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die."

Not a slow and lingering death, swift and merciful at his behest.
"He'll feel no pain?"
"None, he's on a morphine drip."
"Disconnect all life support."
