English isn't my mother tongue, so sorry if there are any faults in my grammar.
I don't own any stuff that you recognize from Save The Last Dance.
Hope you like this... and please review! Thank you.

Sara stared at the grey sea and remembered her mother's words: "When I'm gonna die, I wanna be spread. Over the sea.
No graveyard, just the sea and me." Her mother had always liked the blue waves, but the waves Sara saw, weren't blue at all.
She looked around; the beach was almost deserted."Mum," she whispered softly. "Can you hear me?"
She waited, like she expected an answer. She didn't got one, she only heard the raving waves.
"Juillard has accepted me. They liked my dance."
When she looked at the horizon, she saw a small ship.
"Derek really helped me. He's my boyfriend. He's great. If you wouldn't have died... I would have never met him."
The wind blowed.
"I'm not saying that I'm glad you're dead. I miss you, mum."
She heard a dog barking.
"I'm just finally happy with this new life."
The dog jumped in front of her and she stepped back.
"Sorry miss, normally he listens when I say 'sit!'..." said a polite voice behind her. She turned around and looked in the eyes
of a little boy.
"Sorry, miss," said the boy again, and he fiddled with his frizzy, brown hear.
"O, it doesn't matter," smiled Sara. "What's you dog's name?"
"Pepsi, miss," he answered.
"Pepsi?" Sara looked at the dog that played with the sand. She had to admit the coulour of his fur looked really Pepsi Cola-ish.
"That's a nice name."
"Yeah, they say so," said the boy. "I mean: they say so, miss."
"It's alright," she said again, this time silently laughing, "you don't have to say 'miss'."
"O... my mother learned me to do that. But, uh, I have to go," he said. "Excuse me."
"Okay, have a nice day!" she said.
"You too, miss!" the boy answered, and he walked to his dog. Sara stared at the sea again.
"That was a cute boy," she said softly, and then, a bit louder: "Right, mum?"
Still no answer.
"Don't worry, mum," Sara spoke, after a few minutes. "I love you and I still mis you – but I'm fine. Really."

She looked at the sea one last time, and then turned around.
