Summary:
Dear Edward, I can't help but wish that you will miss me now that I am gone. After all, we had a lot of great times together. Though I hope you won't feel guilty and go and try to kill yourself, as I know you will try. It's not your fault that I am dead. It's mine. I didn't even attempt to move out of the way when the car came. Okay? But I do hope you let everyone know that I will miss them. Even if they hate me as much as you do, just let them know that. I hope you lead a normal life now, one with a normal vampire girlfriend, one where you are happy. Forever yours, Isabella Marie Swan

"It's the fear
Fear of the dark
It's growing inside of me,
that one day will come to life
Have to save
To save my beloved,
there is no escape,
because my faith is horror and doom"

It's The Fear: Within Temptation

Charlotte Hall POV

Everything happened in slow motion. I glanced at my sister as we fell. Her emerald eyes were full of fear. My heartbeat was frantic, as if it was trying to escape from my chest.

Thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump.

"We have to get out of the car, otherwise we'll go down with it!" I shouted to her. Her face was full of hopelessness.

I undid my seatbelt and opened the door. The water was coming up fast below us. I saw my sister was doing the same.

Thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump.

I winked. "See you on the other side," and jumped. I screamed as my body fell like a rocked hurtling to Earth. I braced myself when I saw the water speeding towards me.

Thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump.

I hit the water with a loud smack. I screamed; the water was so cold that it burned every part of my body. Bubbles burst from me, wobbling like little jellyfish as they rose. I try my best to swim up, but the current pulled me this way and that, so that I didn't know which way was up.

Thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump.

My lungs burned with each second that past in my struggle against the water and the storm above. Suddenly, I felt so sleepy.

Thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump.

So sleepy. I closed my eyes. Why did people make dying such a big deal? It wasn't so bad. In fact, I felt sort of happy. Happiness. It made the whole dying thing pretty bearable.

Thump-thump...Thump-thump...Thump-thump.

My only regret was that I didn't get to say goodbye to my parents. They would be so sad. Bella and Bailey, too. A cold, iron bar hit me in the stomach, and stars danced before my vision. I felt water rush around me. My head broke the surface and I tried to draw in a breath, but I only coughed. I was towed to the shore.

"Breathe! Please, Char! Oh, please! Breathe!" Said a voice, it was so musical. It sounded like bells. I wanted to, but I could only cough.

"What are we going to do?" The musical voice asked in desperation.

"I don't know! Sera's not breathing!" Another bell-like voice called from further away.

"Neither is Charlotte! I think-I think we might have to..." The voice trailed off.

"Okay! We'll do it."

I felt a warm slashing at my hands and ankles. The warmth spread, wrapping me in a blanket.

Thump-thump...Thump-thump...Thump-thump.

I sighed and fell into unconsciousness.

Thump-thump...Thump-thump...Thump-thump.

Serafina Hall POV

No thank you, no thank you, no thank you, no thank you
I ain't about to die like this
Chemo Limo By Regina Spektor

Everything happened in slow motion. I could hear the car's tires screeched in complaint as they skidded over the road. I could hear the cords snap as we skidded into them. I could see the water, cold and black, rushing underneath us. I could see my sister's jet-black hair waving around crazily around her face.

"We have to get out of the car, otherwise we'll go down with it!" My sister screamed at me. I nodded helplessly. My shaky hands fumbled with the seatbelt and I opened the car door. I looked over my shoulder. I saw my sister, her purple eyes gleaming with excitement.

"See you on the other side," She winked and jumped. I realized that her words had two meanings.

I sobbed, tears rushing down my face. I couldn't die. Not now. I started to hyperventilate. I was only 15! Pull yourself together, Sera! I told myself. You need to jump! The water was rushing up fast to meet me. I wiped my tears away, but I couldn't stop hyperventilating. I took in as deep a breath and jumped.

I also fainted.

I was shaken awake as someone splashed some cold water all over me. It was probably Charlotte. I had slept in, and Charlotte was being her obnoxious self and decided to throw a bucket of cold water on me.

I laughed, but there was something different. I heard no noise, but I felt the vibration around me.

I sat up in my bed and yelled at Charlotte, but she only giggled and ran away. I got up and followed her, chasing her in a game of tag. I past my mother who was doing a crossword puzzle with a pencil behind her ear. Her fizzy red hair was up in a ponytail. She laughed when she saw us, but it made no noise. Charlotte ran into our father's study, and I chased her around Dad sitting in his desk. I tripped and slammed into Charlotte and we both fell, laughing. Still, no noise came from our mouths.

A single noise came to my ears. It was a terrible, heart wrenching, sobbing.

Everything faded to black.

"What are we going to do?" A musical voice asked in desperation.

"I don't know! Sera's not breathing!" Another bell-like voice called.

"Neither is Charlotte! I think-I think we might have to..." The voice trailed off.

"Okay! We'll do it."

I felt a warm slashing on my wrists and ankles. The warmth spread, wrapping me in a blanket. I drifted back into my unconsciousness.
