*WARNING: If you haven't seen the movie or read the book, "Bridge to Terabithia", do not read this fanfic! It WILL contain spoilers!*
A/N: Okay, so yesterday I was looking at some Bridge to Terabithia fanfics. As I looked at them, I realized that no one has written a fanfic about Leslie's death in her POV. So, I decided to write one since Bridge to Terabithia is another one of my favorite movies, and I've always wondered why they never showed her actual death. So I guess this is my little intake on how I thought the scene should be. Also, I wrote this at like 2AM this morning, so if it sucks, it was because I was half asleep! Anyways, enjoy!
I began racing through the woods as quickly as I could, hoping to meet up with Jess yet again at our secret place.
"Jess!" I called out again; but still no answer.
I stopped running when I finally reached the rope. I looked around and listened intensively for any signs of Jess, but the constant sound of running water drowned out all the noise.
I gasped as I looked down at the river. It had risen up by at least three more inches since yesterday's trip. I couldn't help but feel a tad bit nervous as I climbed up onto the log.
"Jess!" I called once more as I my hands gripped tightly around the rope.
Where was he?
I took a deep breath as I prepared myself to jump like I'd done many times before. But as soon as my feet left the ground, I could tell something was wrong.
I was about halfway across the river when I heard the rope begin to snap. I quickly shut my eyes and let out a horrified scream as I plunged into the deep water below. Suddenly, I felt a sharp pain in the back of my head, followed by the sound of my skull cracking against the jagged rocks, causing another loud shriek to escape from my mouth. Water then began to fill up inside me as I began to sink further down into the river. I could feel the water burning in my lungs as I desperately tried to gasp for air, only to be rewarded by more mouthfuls of water.
The pain in the back of my head finally subsided as I felt my body beginning to go limp. My vision blurred until everything went completely black. Soon enough, I slowly began to fade away altogether into complete nothingness.
And that was my last trip to Terabithia...
