We, that sounds so beautiful

Suicide, what a bad thing


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.


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.

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Cliuin: A great fantasy story what follows a young half-race on his joourney.

Robert D. Stanley: I really liked this story. The main character was very well fleshed out (so much so that I sometimes felt sorry for her friends with how little trust she had in them) and your descriptive writing was very good. There are, however a few points I'd like to critique.1. The dual PoVs were interesting...

Dr.Strangelove: not the ending I expected.

Aditya Harikrish: It had me on tenterhooks since the very first page. Excllently developed plot and characters. You've done an amazing job of building a fantasy world from scratch. Hats off to you!A sequel is a must.
