We, that sounds so beautiful

Fantasy / Adventure

Suicide, what a bad thing

Monday.

Of course.

It has to be Monday.

Because of it being Monday, here I am trudging towards my High School, Silverwood High.

By the way, Christmas/Holiday/Whatever-you-call-it break just ended. So, fuck life.

I started to cross the bridge When I notice a beautiful brunnete girl that I recognize as Jasmine Kane. She's heading the opposite way to school, which was weird. God, it didn't help that she was wearing short shorts, a semi-oversize grey sweater, and her brown hair was gently blowing in the San Fransisco wind.

As I reached the other side, something caught my eye.

Jasmine was about to jump.

My body reacted before my brain and I started to sprint. I reached Jasmine just as she jumped. I grabbed her pale hand, and she stared at me with fierce hazel eyes.

I am the only thing between her life and her death.

Her hand started to slip.

But I didn't let go.

Together, we plummeted into the icy depths if San Fransisco Bay.

Before we hit the ice, just moments after we fell, I whispered into her hair, "Just a by the way before we die; My name is Will Quaint."

Jasmine seemed to try to say something- but our lives ended before she could finish.


This was it. I'm going to jump. I have no one left in the world.

Fuck, My own mother left me.

I glanced one last time at the slowly rising sun on theGolden Gate Bridge.

I jumped.

The shock never came.

I opened my eyes to see what was keeping me from leaving this world.

And my eyes locked with a familiar pair of gentle blue orbs. I knew this person.

I finally recognized those gentle eyes as Will Quaint's.

My hand started to slip.

No, I can't go now. I finally have something to live for.

I squeezed my eyes shut and prepared to die.

Alone.

But as I fell, I was wrapped in the strong arms of The cookie-loving teenager.

"By the way, before we die, my name is Will Quaint." What adweeb, I already KNOW his name. But yet, I opened one hazel eye and started to say something- but the icy waters engulfed us before I could even speak.

We died.

We, that sounds so beautiful. If only I could have lived to say that.

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written.

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...
