So I decided to re-post this because of all the mistakes in the last one. I don't own any of the characters; they all belong to 20th Fox. The song belongs to Evanescence. R&R and enjoy!
Goodnight, sleep tight
No more tears
In the morning
I'll be here
And when we say goodnight
Goodbyes are always hard, especially when you never meant to say goodbye in the first place. It's even harder to say hello to a man who took your child away, and sent him to an island far away from the comforts of home. Maybe this was my punishment…maybe I was meant to die because of the mistakes I made. Whatever the reasons were I guess I don't mind, I mean maybe it was my time to go. I heard someone shout my name, and the whistle of the bomb coming down on us.
"Sarah!" I didn't turn to run, I stood my ground and whispered;
"Goodnight." Then the darkness of night took over me.
Dry your eyes
Because we said goodnight
And not goodbye
We said goodnight
And not goodbye
"I would prefer it if you didn't return!"I remember her yelling to me.
"All right. You're the boss."I said to her. I ignored what she had said to me that day, and ended up going home…hoping to be reunited with her. Yet she wasn't there. Brandy said she was in Darwin, and there was no likelihood she would be returning. So I went after her, and planned on convincing her to go back. Never in my life did I expect that the once lively city would be up in flames.
"Hey!" I heard someone yell. I turned on my horse looking, think maybe it was her I heard. "Drover! Magarri!" It wasn't her. I saw Goolaj waving his hands toward us.
"Goolaj, where's Mrs. Boss?" I ask him.
"She down at the army HQ old Carney place!" He yelled back, and I was already gone…I stopped when I came face to face with the army HQ, seeing it up in flames. I jumped from my horse, and ran to Callahan.
"Callahan? Is she in there?" I asked.
"Who?" He asked.
"Sarah Ashley?" I nearly yelled, and made an attempt to get in the building.
"It's too late." He said, and a group of army fellas held me back.
"She's in there!" I yelled, and from that moment on it was a blur. I heard myself yelling, and saw what was going on…but my mind was somewhere else. "Sarah!" I yell and fight to get the man off of me. "Sarah!" I yell again. Magarri Pulls me from the army fellas, and my fist rises up.
"Go on! Hit me! It won't bring her back!" He says. He had a point…she was gone. I push away from him, and walk away. I don't know where I was going, I just couldn't stand there. I scream, and make my way to the territory. Ivan was sweeping and a few men were sitting around having a drink.
"Hey! No boongs in here." Ivan said. I turned to see that Magarri had followed me. I turned back to Ivan, and more tears ran down my face.
"You didn't say that did you?" I asked him. He shrugged and a small smirk rose to his face.
"That's how it is." He said.
"Just because it is…Doesn't…doesn't mean it should be." I repeat Sarah's words. There was silence in the room, everyone looking at me. "Serve him a fuckin' drink!" I ordered. I turned back to the door, and told him to come in. He opened the doors for the first time, and stood next to me.
"Aw what does it matter?" Ivan said, and grabbed poor fella, and one glass and a cup. "I'm a total bloody ruin. I close this place up and head south like everyone else." He continued talking and I let my mind wander.
"You forgot one glass." I tell him. He looks at me confused. "One…more…glass." I say, and a tear runs down my cheek. He sighs and puts the cup away. A glass took its place. He poured the poor fella for us, and we drank. I had one drink after that, and went out with the other survivors. The smoke blocked the sun from reaching their faces, and my own. The darkness surrounded all of us. The darkness of the night.
