Why don't they do what they say

Say what you mean

One thing leads to another

You told me something's wrong

I know I listen too long but than

One thing leads to another

How To Save A Life

Chapter Twenty-Two:

Epilogue

Flashback.

The blonde haired woman shut her dusty photo album and looked at her class. A raven-haired little boy raised his hand. "Miss Andy, why did you tell us this story?"

Andy Cullen smiled. "I told you the story, Mark, because it taught a lesson. No matter how bad things are, or what ever happens, just remember that the most important thing is your family."

A little girl next to him looked confused. "Miss Andy, what happened to Renee, Charlie, Voltry, Emmett, Laura, Edward, Rosalie, Jake, the babies, Heidi and Bella and Coon?!" She exclaimed, her face turning red by the end of her run-on.

Andy laughed. "Renee was happy with her vampire life, and Charlie ran into her a while later. He still loves her, as I told you, and asked her out again. Figured she'd say yes, since they were older this time. Turns out he figured right, because they were married and Charlie changed right after. He's still Police Chief…only he doesn't need the gun.

"Aro and the rest of the Volturi are still living in the sewers of Italy, happy as ever, only they aren't carnivores anymore. They went veggie about ten years ago. I still see him from time to time…after all we are related.

"Emmett and Bella did get married, and shortly after their wedding, Coon got hit by a car, and Bella bit her to save her. Coon is the first official animal to be a vampire, but her talent is eating. She doesn't need blood, just water.

"Edward realized he had feelings for Laura about three years after Bella and Emmett's wedding. They started dating, and were married a year later.

"Rosalie finally healed from her problem with the puppies in Canada, and married Jake a year after their babies were born. She named her twins HeidiAnne and MyiaLynn, after her two sisters. Heidi told her about her identity after they were born, and they still keep in touch. Jake is still a werewolf, and amazing as this is, his daughters weren't even a little vampire. Both have darkish skin and dark brown hair, and phased within minutes of each other on their 16th birthday.

"That's the end little ones, nap time." Andy said, smiling. Ignoring various groans, she tucked them all in.

"Miss Andy, why is the story called How to Save a Life?" Mark asked her half asleep.

Andy sighed heavily. "The title was given to the story because that's what everyone did. They saved each other. Maybe not in the literal sense of the word, but they did. Even if they didn't notice thy were doing it themselves." She said softly, kissing his forehead.

She made her way to the desk, and pushed the button for the lights, they dimmed immediately, but after her eyes adjusted, she looked at the 5x7 on the corner of her desk. In it were her family people, eleven of which with golden eyes, four with red, five with brown, and one with emerald green. Smiling, she stared at it for a while.

Nodding as if she made a decision, she pulled out her cherry red enV and dialed a number. "Mom?" She said after the beep of her voice mail. "I'm done playing human. I'm ready to come home. I'm ready to live with you guys forever. I wasn't so sure before, but now I realize that I was ready from the start. I'm sorry I ran away, but two little six year olds reminded me of what it felt like to save a life. I'm ready to have an eternal one mommy. I'll be home soon. With all the love in my heart, Meda." She said softly, knowing her mother could hear her even if she breathed it.

End Flashback.

Yes, she really had remembered what it felt like to save a life. It felt amazing, like no other feeling. Closing her eyes, and taking a deep breath, she gave her senses over to the fire.

Step one you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it's just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And pray to God he hears you

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you've followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life
How to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life

The end.
