As everyone surrounds Marius in amazement he spots Eponine lying propped against the barricade.

MARIUS

Eponine! What have you done? He kneels by her side. Eponine is dying.

EPONINE

Here... It's from Cosette... I kept it from you... With a struggle she pulls the letter out of her pocket, and pushes it into his hand.

EPONINE

Don't be too hard on me...

Marius is shocked to find blood pouring from her wound.

MARIUS

Eponine, you're hurt! You need some help!

Rain begins to fall.

EPONINE

Don't you fret, M'sieur Marius - I don't feel any pain. A little fall of rain... Can hardly hurt me now. You're here - that's all I need to know. And you will keep me safe. And you will keep me close. And rain will make the flowers grow...

MARIUS

But you will live, Eponine - Dear God above! If I could close your wounds with words of love -

EPONINE

Just hold me now, and let it be. Shelter me... Comfort me...

MARIUS

You will live a hundred years If I could show you how... I won't desert you now...

EPONINE

The rain can't hurt me now... This rain will wash away what's past. And you will keep me safe. And you will keep me close. I'll sleep in your embrace at last.

Marius tries to comfort Eponine in his arms.

MARIUS

Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine. You won't feel any pain. A little fall of rain. Can hardly hurt you now I'm here.

EPONINE

So don't you fret, M'sieur Marius. I don't feel any pain. A little fall of rain. Can hardly hurt me now...

MARIUS

I will stay with you. Till you are sleeping.

EPONINE

That's all I need to know. And you will keep me safe. And you will keep me close. And rain...Will make the flowers...Grow...

Eponine dies in Marius's arms. Marius looks up at the others, his eyes full of tears.
