The words died away, the steps were lost in the distance.
A few words of love, so he might die in peace?
She was about to ask him what he wanted when the words died on her lips.
I wanted to call to her again, but the words died in my throat.
Then the words died away completely and the two were gone.
My angry words died at the look on his face.
She tried to call after him as he walked away, but the words died on her tongue.
The words died as she turned and saw his face.
The words died in my throat when I opened the door.
