Ovid and Nikolai devised a plan: they would sneak past their parents and, cloaked by the night, they would meet each other in an empty parking lot in the bustling city of Chicago. Nikolai adds that he will bring his pocket knife for protection. Then, they would run away together. They would run away from their pain.
The day came when they would both run away. Ovid decided it would be best if he were to get to the parking lot earlier than Nikolai. As he stood in the light, a silhouette walked toward him.
Ovid, thinking it was Nikolai, yelled "Nikolai! Over here!"
The silhouette was not Nikolai. It was a murderer who had killed a family that night. The murderer, still out for blood, savagely stabs Ovid.
Nikolai comes to the parking lot later that night. He spots Ovid bleeding out on the ground. Nikolai does not believe it at first, but eventually, reality sets in. Nikolai weeps and screams with agony.
Nikolai, overcome with the guilt of letting his love die, takes out his trusty pocket knife. He proceeds to stab himself in the heart without hesitation. Nikolai and Ovid are now forever united; they are united by true love.
