"if i could give her a big does of 'be nice' then we'd all live happily ever after." -Stevie Rae, Chosen.

I was standing by the back corner of my truck, struggling to fight back the sudden wave of emotion the snow chains had brought on, when I heard an odd sound.

It was the high-pitched screech of tires against the road.

I looked behind me and gasped. Tyler’s van was coming right for me; I braced myself for the impact. I knew in the pit of my stomach that there was no way in hell I was going to make it out of this alive. I heard people screaming, and before closing my eyes took one fleeting glance at Edward who was being held back by his brother, Emmett I think.

The cars impact came quicker then I calculated, but I was never good at math. It knocked the air out of me and crushed my rib cage and legs. I couldn’t breathe. I knew what was coming, and I took it with open arms. Death has always seemed so much easier then life. The next thing I knew something cold and hard pierced the skin at my neck. I screamed even though I felt I had no lungs.

“Just keep your heart beating Bella. Please don’t give up yet. Please Bella.” I heard Edward’s musical voice force itself through my darkness. I had to obey him, I wanted to, but I didn’t no how to not give up. It was my body’s choice, not my own. I screamed again I agony.

“Push it off of her!” he yelled to only god knows who. I heard the car groan in protest, but felt Edward’s arms around me. I started to feel less and scream more. The pain of whatever Edward injected in me was worse then the car crushing me.

“Oh god, Alice she’s bleeding everywhere.”

“You and Jasper go, Emmett Rose and I can take care of her.” I felt myself being handed off to her, or maybe Emmett.

“Put her in the car, we have to take her to Carlisle. Stupid Edward couldn’t wait for the ambulance.” I continued to scream in pain.

What had I done to burn in hell?

The author's comments:
One night I was thinking to myself, "what if Edward let her get crushed by the van in Twilight? What would he have done?" I would like to think he would have changed her, so i wrote it out. I owe my inspration to Stephenie Meyer.

Keep smiling because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.

I like your quote in this, "death has always seemed much easier then life" I agree, it seems so easy to do just end your life in a matter of seconds. It makes you think about how quickly your life could end a any moment.

I like this very much. Your prose is excellent. It makes me wonder what the rest of the books whould have been like, had there been any after this.

I think I know enough of hate- to say that for destruction ice- is also great- and would suffice.

Eew. What a disapointment. I had believed that this story was suppose to be making fun of twilight. Good writing skills, though.

The title caught my eye...I've always wondered the same thing. This is very well written and I like the idea. Sounds like it could work ;-)

i like it. i was curious due to the title of course (what an intriguing concept) and was surprising at my enjoyment of your story. it was well written and probably what would've happend in that situation. "Sttupid edward couldn't wait for the ambulence." - i love that line :)
