Rating 4.5/5   Word Count 588   Review this Chapter

I came out of the blackness that had engulfed me when I hit the water. I was so wet, but that was expected. I heard loud shouting and I looked around me. I noticed Jake as he dove into the river, yelling at Sam.

Wait. Wasn't I in the river? I did another quick survey around me, and realized that I was standing on the bank of the river, next to the trees. How did I get here? Another shout brought my attention back to the chaos at hand.

"I've got her!" Jake yelled to Sam.

Got who? Jake swam back to the bank and set a girl down. I didn't see her face because her brown hair was in the way, but she was deathly pale and looked to not be breathing. Jake pounded on her chest and performed CPR, all the while shouting: "Bella! Bella!"

"Yes, Jake?" I answered. He didn't seem to hear me, because he continued his thirty compressions on her chest.

"Jake!" I said louder, wondering why he didn't look up.

"No, Bella! Wake up! I can't lose you! Sam! Did you call 911?!" He cried hysterically.

"Yes." Sam replied. "It'll be around ten minutes before they get here." He grimaced.

"Bella, please! I don't want to lose you!" Tears were running down Jake's cheeks, as he crouched over the girl's body.

"Jake I'm right here, you aren't going to lose me!" I insisted, perplexed.

Things did not look good for the girl, she hadn't responded yet, even after five minutes of CPR. I walked over to Jake and the girl, to see if I could help.

"Jake-" I began, but Jake cut me off as if he hadn't heard me.

"Where's the ambulance! She's still not breathing!" He put his fingers to the girl's neck and waited. "There's no pulse either!" He wailed.

Jake did thirty more compressions, and two more breaths. He relentlessly continued, with an anguished expresson on his face. Sam walked slowly up to Jake with a sad face, and put his hand on his shoulder.

"Jake...I don't think there's anything you can do. She's gone."

Jake's anguished howl of rage rang through the forest. "Don't say that!" Heaving sobs wracked his body as he bent over the girl to give half-hearted compressions. The wail of an ambulance was heard, and Jake slowly sat up, his face scrunched in agony and sorrow as he gently wiped the wet hair away from the dead girl's face and planted a delicate kiss on her forehead.

"I'm sorry Bella." He whispered sadly, his fingers tracing her heart-shaped face and wiping off his tears. A jolt ran through me.

I gasped in surprise and shock as I stared at the corpse's face. It was me.

I watched in horror as they put my body on a stretcher and hoisted it into the ambulance. Jake and Sam climbed into the seats of the ambulance and slammed the doors behind them. Then they wheeled away, the high-pitched keening of the ambulance following.

I stood there for awhile with my mouth hanging open before I realized that I was alone, and the ambulance had left without me. My eyes darted around wildly while I tried to grasp the situation. I'm dead? What? I can't be. No, no. This isn't right. This must be nightmare. Yes, that's right. A horrible, terrifying nightmare. I decided that I was going to go with the flow, and play along.

So I followed the ambulance to the hospital.
