Bella is the only Survivor of a virus which has killed off the human race. Is there anyone-anything still alive on this dying planet?
"....if this is how everything was going to end. Why bring me into this world where I'd see nothing but everyone I love die..." Bella,Chap 7
In a world destroyed by the H1N1 virus, Bella lives her daily life in solitude. She is left a prisoner to her loneliness and with the memories of the "normal" teenage life she lived before the end came, taking away everyone she ever knew and loved.
Teaching herself to survive on things that were left behind... Keeping to a routine, Bella counts every step... talks to clouds, reads the same newspaper everyday... functions the best she can.
Finally dealing with the reality that it was only her left behind... she never expected to find him.
The virus killed every human, every animal, every insect, every vampire... every vampire with the exception of Edward.
"....God give me a reason to live..."
"For me?" Bella and Edward, Chap13
The planet is dying... the stars are gone and the sun is next. A choice needs to be made. Do you chose to live and to love even if that existence is a nightmare or do you die and hope that you'll be rejoined again?
They live for each other, but is it enough?
"I love you." He whispers even though we are the only two souls on earth. Bella, Chapter 24
If you're looking for something new, something unlike anything you have ever read. Something magical, I highly recommend Goodnight, Noises Everywhere. This a fic offering the perfect combination of hope, loss, love and angst....
You'll hang onto every word... arguing with yourself about what you would chose if you were in their shoes.
Beautifully written, wonderfully original and highly recommended.
