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."


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.


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.


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"


"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.


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.
