As Darkness is Falling
It was almost time.
I could feel the shadows receding toward where I stood under the clock. I paused momentarily to hear the thoughts of people around me.
My mind must have been playing tricks on me, because I swear I saw a picture of Bella going through a fountain. Bella…
I closed my mind off to the people and only thought of Bella. Behind my eyelids I saw her face, her smile, her hair…
I could hear her voice.
I could almost feel her warmth.
The clock tolled. It was time to meet my destiny.
