Whisper

Evanescence

I walked onto the stage, taking a deep breath. I was shocked at how large the crowd was. Werewolf was a huge hit; our album sold like crazy, and now we had a sold out tour. It was great. And I just wrote this new song - Whisper - because I knew that, since our songs would be playing on the radio, he would hear it. And I could let him know how much pain he had caused me, cause him the pain that I felt. And maybe that would make things better.

"Ready Bells?" Jacob asked, just to my right. I nodded, taking another step forwards to grab the microphone. The crows cheered louder, and, out of the corner of my eye, I could see Embry grinning. I could feel myself smiling, too. None of us had imagined that Werewolf would be this popular. It felt amazing to know that so many people understood, or at least knew of, what happened.

"This is a new song I just wrote," I told the screaming crowd. My eyes raked over the signs people were holding up farther back in the crowd. "It's called 'Whisper,' and it's for Edward." It was the first time I had ever announced his name to the public. I wasn't sure why I had done it, but it felt so good to say his name - outside of my head - without flinching.

Jacob and Quil started up the beat, loud and electric. I allowed myself a quick grin, before joining them, Embry coming in a few seconds later.

Catch me as I fall
Say you're here and it's all over now
Speaking to the atmosphere
No one's here and I fall into myself

This truth drives me
Into madness
I know I can stop the pain
If I will it all away
If I will it all away

Don't turn away
Don't give in to the pain
Don't try to hide
Though they're screaming your name
Don't close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
Don't turn out the light
Never sleep never die

I'm frightened by what I see
But somehow I know
That there's much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be
Blinded by tears
I can stop the pain
If I will it all away

If I will it all away

Don't turn away
Don't give in to the pain
Don't try to hide
Though they're screaming your name
Don't close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
Don't turn out the light
Never sleep never die

Fallen angels at my feet
Whispered voices at my ear
Death before my eyes
Lying next to me I fear
She beckons me
Shall I give in
Upon my end shall I begin
Forsaking all I've fallen for
I rise to meet my end

Don't turn away
Don't give in to the pain
Don't try to hide
Though they're screaming your name
Don't close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
Don't turn out the light
Never sleep never die
Don't try to hide
Don't close your eyes
Don't turn out the light

Don't turn away
Don't give in to the pain
Don't try to hide
Though they're screaming your name
Don't close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
Don't turn out the light
Never sleep never die

Don't turn away
Don't give in to the pain
Don't try to hide
Though they're screaming your name
Don't close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
Don't turn out the light
Never sleep never die

The words ended, and the boys finished up the song, getting softer until they stopped playing. Then, I finally looked out into the crowd. They were cheering, screaming. We were all grinning again. I looked down at what I was wearing - a long, floorlength black dress with fancy trimming. I wasn't sure when I first saw the dress, but, a few rips and tears later, it was exactly what I wanted - the pure, Gothic look.

I don't care if you have control over me, I thought, as if Edward could hear me. I don't care that every night, I'm haunted by nightmares. I'm going to make sure that my life doesn't keep spiraling downwards. You will not destroy my life. I will do the one thing you never could - live.

And the crowd kept cheering.
