We, that sounds so beautiful

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.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Jade Niday: This book has a really great plot. The author really makes you feel connected to the main character. There are twist around every corner you never see coming.. Great read for sure and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Alkira Joan: I omg I am honestly speechless I couldn't stop cry it's so sad I wish it had a better ending and they would all be happy and the end is their going to be a second book?thanks for the amaZing story xoxox

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...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully!

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.
