Yeah, I know. I don't really like it either. The ending sucks, and so does the writing.
I just couldn't leave the poor guy in pain forever, so I had to end it somehow.
A happy ending was not an option. Never was, really.
I could have done a better job of wrapping things up, but I decided that it would be better to just get it over with.
Anyway, thanks for reading!
