I don't even know what I was running for - I guess I just felt like it. ~J.D.
Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
But the funny thing about facing imminent danger is that it really snaps everything into perspective. Take now for instance. I'd never given much thought to how I would die-though I'd had reason enough in the last few months-but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this. Run. You're faster than they are. You can outrun anyone. Butwhen life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it is unreasonable to grieve when it comes to an end. I knew that if I'd never gone to Forks I wouldn't be facing death now. But, terrified as I was, I couldn't bring myself to regret my decision. There was no choice really. If you were me you'd have done the same thing. The hunter smiled in a friendly way as she sauntered forward to kill me. I'm not going to die today.
