He nodded.

"Ashley was kind of sketchy on what happened..." I trailed off leaving it open for him to explain.

He took a deep breath "Well,..."

"Brett and I were able to get to a hill when the dam was close to breaking. We spotted Ashley and Philip running towards our hill. I immediately started to run to meet them and so did Brett. Ashley tripped and hurt her ankle so when I reached her, I carried her towards the hill while Brett took Philip. Brett made it faster than I did since Philip is much lighter. The dam broke while Ashley and I were running and we didn't have the time to make it. Brett put Philip down and rushed towards us. He gave us the push I needed to get to the hill. He didn't make it out fast enough and was carried away. I found him pinned to a tree truck by the current. He passed out while I was trying to get to him." He explained.

I must have looked shocked 1) that was an amazing story 2) he said pretty much all of that in one breath.

"Thank-you" I whispered.

"For what?" He looked kind of confused.

"For saving my sisters life"

"You're welcome." He smiled. "But, Brett deserves credit too. If it wasn't for him both Ashley and I would have been swept away."

"I hope he's going to be ok." I said.

He came over and gave me a hug. "Me too."

***Ashley***

Philip and I were at the soda machine when a whole bunch of people ran past and into the room they'd taken Brett.

"We're losing him!" I heard someone shout.

"Oh No!" I whispered dropping the can.

"Ashley?" Philip clung to my hand tighter.

I looked down at him. "Come on, let's get back to Mary-Kate and Marc-Andre."

I must have walked into the room with a worried face since Mary-Kate knew right away there was something wrong.

She got up right away and tried to go out the door. "I need to see him! Let me go!"

"Mary-Kate," I said trying to calm her down. "You have to let the doctors do their jobs. They'll do everything they can to save Brett."

Mary-Kate started to cry and I hugged her tighly.

***Brett***

I was in a beautiful field full of flowers. Much like the one Mary-Kate had described in her dream. I was wearing a tuxedo. I spun around and around. No one was in sight.

"Mary-Kate?" I called "Are you here?"

"I'm over here" Her voice responded.

I spun around to the direction it had come from. She was walking toward me, wearing a beautiful wedding dress.

"What's going on?" I asked when she reached me.

She smiled up at me "It's our wedding day!"

I opened my eyes and looked around. I was in a hospital room. I glanced to the side of the bed to see Marc-Andre asleep in a chair.

"Marc-Andre" I whispered.

He woke up with a start "Brett!'

"What happened?" I whispered. "All I remember is falling into the water and being pinned to a tree."

"I managed to get you out and bring you here. You were pretty banged up and we almost lost you." He explained.

"Thank you." I said. "Mary-Kate? How is she?"

"She's fine." He said. "She had her operation and is awake in the next room."

"How long have I been unconcious?" I asked him.

"A day." He said.

I struggled to sit up. "A DAY!?!" I said in shock "But that means we have to leave in 2 days!"

"I have to leave in 2 days. You've been given leave till you're fully recovered" he corrected me.

"I'm fine!" I insisted.

"Oh really?" He joked. "Then get up."

I went to get up, but a sharp pain hit me in my chest. I layed back down on the bed and tried again.

"Stop it before you hurt yourself even more." He said.

"I can't let you go off fighting alone." I said. "There's got to be some way to let you stay here. There's got to be!"

He shook his head sadly.

***Mary-Kate***

Ashley ran into my room, startling me.

"HE'S AWAKE!" She screeched.

"I want to see him!" I said decisevely.

"You can't yet, atleast not until you are well enough to go in a wheelchair." Ashley said.

I almost felt like crying. "All I want is to see my boyfriend without some sudden crisis that tears him away from me. Is that too much to ask?" I said near tears. I felt so frustrated and useless.

"No" she said handing me a tissue "Look I'll be right back"

***Ashley***

"hi" I said walking over to the nurse "Look my friends have both had really bad times and aren't well enough to move to go see each other. And I was wondering if you'd possibly be able to move their beds so they're in the same room?"

The nurse nodded "We can do that!"

"Thanks" I smiled

I walked back into Mary-Kate's room along with the nurse. "Good news sis. We're going to move you in with Brett."

"YES!" She squeeked. "That you Ash!"

Just as we got Mary-Kate's bed into Brett's room, I immediately saw Mary-Kate's face light up with joy.

***Brett***

Marc-Andre stuck his head out the door and smiled. He turned to me and grinned "We've got a surprise for you" he said.

"He's grinning and has a surprise." I thought to myself, "I'm scared..."

I looked with a puzzled look on my face as I saw them rolling a bed into my room. As the bed continued to come in, it soon revealed the occupant.

"MARY-KATE!" I cheered.

"Brett!" She said waving and grinning.
