The Day That I Died

Drama / Action

Chapter 1

Chapter 1

Nothing had ever made Phineas Flynn cry harder than the day he had to attend his stepbrother, Ferb-Fletcher's funeral. It was another one of those rainy days in London and you could almost feel the sadness in the air that day. Phineas didn't know what to do as he stood under the tree, trying to get the thoughts in his head organized. He was jolted out of his stupor by his girlfriend, Isabella. Isabella made a weak smile at him.

"Come on" She whispered, "It's time for the ceremony."

She took his hand in hers and they walked under one umbrella heading to a patch of ground surrounded by hundreds of people taking cover under umbrellas.

Everyone who knew Ferb Fletcher was there. In attendance were all of Ferb's friends, his wife, Vanessa, his in-laws, his father, Lawrence, his stepmother, Linda, and his stepsister and her husband. Even his biological mother, Annie had come. To everyone's surprise, the President of the United States, the Prime Minister, and The Queen were all in attendance. The couple stood beside their friends, Special Agents Cho and Nagata, also taking cover behind the umbrella. The crowd became silent as the hearse with the coffin of Ferb's body rolled up. Twenty-Two Royal British Guards picked up the coffin and lifted it on to a station underneath a tent where onlookers and family members could have one chance to say one last goodbye.

After everyone had a chance to say goodbye. They hooked the coffin on to the crane and they began to lower it down into the ground. A team of Royal British Guards saluted the coffin as it descended six-feet under while the British National anthem played in the background, a sign of a final farewell. News cameras and other media outlets quietly took pictures and filmed the symbolic occasion. Phineas broke down again in Isabella's arms. He couldn't control the memories that had flooded his brain of the good times he and Ferb had. Isabella also started crying and she held him as they stood in the pouring rain. No one who attended the funeral of Ferb Fletcher that day would ever dream that their lives would so dramatically change in that instant that warm sunny night in Danville two years ago…

It had all started during a warm summer day in Danville; the air was hot and humid, trapping everyone, including the Flynn-Fletcher duo that usually preferred to work outside. Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher was beginning the final touches to a prototype of a new military humvee for the US Army, who had contracted them to build the vehicle only three weeks ago. Ferb was busy welding a section of the vehicle together when his cell phone went-off. He stopped his task and answered the phone. It was his wife, Vanessa. She had just called to check on how he was doing,

"I'm doing fine love…Yes yes, I remembered…Mhmm…Alright…Love you too…Bye"

"Ooh sounds like someone has a hot date tonight" Phineas laughed

"Oh put a sock in it Phin and just tell me what else I have to do before I die of old age." Ferb said jokingly

"Fine…Fine…Ok you have to double weld your last section and…"Phineas began when he was interrupted by Ferb's cell phone again.

Ferb moaned "Vanessa again?" he asked his brother incredulously. He answered his phone. His facial expression suddenly turned dark and he began to show signs of someone being in almost complete shock.

"Y…You!" Ferb yelled "I thought I…How did you get this number?...Don't call back!" He threw his cell phone on to the ground in a fit of rage.

"Whoa who was that man?" Phineas asked a bit confused.

"It…It was no one" Ferb said shakily.

"Come on man I thought we've been over this you know you can…" Phineas began


He saw the horrified look on Phineas rage, he had never seen his brother this angry before. He sighed,

"Look…I'm sorry Phin, it's just…it's just that…" Ferb began

"It was your ex wasn't it?" Phineas asked.

Ferb sighed again.

"Yes…She's been stalking me ever since I broke up with her three years ago. It got worse after I married Vanessa." Ferb responded gravely.

"Seriously? Shouldn't she have gotten over you by now?" Phineas asked incredulously.

"I know, but when I broke up with her, she swore to me that someday, she would get me back in a somewhat threatening manner…"

"You didn't tell the cops?" Phineas asked as he got a can of soda from the fridge.

"I asked Ben what had happened and he told me that there was nothing the police could do for me…"

"Oh well, let's look on the bright side Ferb," Phineas said patting his shoulder, "at least she moved away to California and doesn't have a clue where you live." Phineas said brightly.

Ferb sighed again and laughed. "Always looking to the bright side eh Phin?"

"You know me best." Phineas said laughing.

They both laughed. However, little did they know that a figure outside their warehouse was watching their every move…. especially Ferb Fletcher's.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Liz Aguilar, author of To Have And to Hold a fast-paced, gripping, adrenaline rush from start to finish, one of perhaps the finest pieces of writing I've ever read, in particular because of its' telenovela-like feel, May she continually find success as an author.

Deleted User: I've only read so far to the first two chapters, but I already get that thick, underlying meaning of dark romance--which is good, because it sets the tone, with a hint of danger.

Tanya Daigle Rusheon: This book is a long and twisty tale full of sweet romance, adorable fluff, anxiousness, trust issues, mind games, things that don't make sense until suddenly they do, heartache and reconciliation just when you need it the most.
