Yngvar said: Leave it to Pike to make a chuckleworthy comment about his lifemate's death, though. Yes, you just know they will. :)Totally. And yet, Pike's struggle to let Krim end her life was so heartbreaking. He knew he had to let her go, but even so he had to go and try to rescue her. Their last moments together were heart-wrenching--especially when he called her "Bright Blade."
