The cold was unbearable. You could feel it seeping through your jacket and your skin. It
almost felt like your insides were freezing. It‟s all fun and games until you fall asleep in Alfred‟s car and he doesn‟t know where you live so he drops you off where
he thinks you live. Yes you lived in Canada, but not in the middle of no where!
“Alfred, if I live through this, I swear I‟m going to kill you!”
You couldn‟t feel your legs anymore, and you weren‟t sure how far away civilization
was. You shivered in your
jacket, but suddenly you felt very… tired. No! You knew that if you went to sleep you would probably never wake up. You couldn‟t even see where you were walking because of the torrents of rushing snow in front of your face. “Maybe
if I just lie down for a
second… No! _____, keep it together!”
You mumbled into your scarf.
At this rate though, if you didn‟t
find shelter soon you knew that you would die soon.
You couldn‟t feel anything anymore. “Just…” You collapsed onto your side, no longer
having the abili
ty to move. “Help!” You cried out know that nobody would come and
you. “Help! Somebody! Anybody! Help…!” You felt your eyes begin to close, and you no longer had the strength to keep them open. “Goodbye…”

( Matthew‟s POV)
- - - - - - - - - Matthew was sitting on his couch, watching the embers of the fireplace burn, and the
flickering flames. “I wonder what everyone else is doing.” He wouldn‟t have known, he chose one of the more remote places to live, so that he didn‟t have to deal wi
th the same
old, „Who are you‟ and when he said who he was people forgetting
who he was a couple seconds later.
It got lonely sometimes, nobody remembered him, so he didn‟t have many people he
could hang out with. Like Alfred. He was jealous of his brother sometimes, he had so
many friends when Matthew didn‟t have but one. That bear didn‟t count though. It forgot him too much, he meant Alfred‟s friend though. ____. He wasn‟t sure that he should call
her a friend, it was just that she remembered his name and when he was with Alfred sometimes, she would be there too. Matthew took a picture out of his red hoodie pocket and looked at it. It was a picture of him, ____, and Alfred at Six Flags.
He put the picture in the stand next to the couch.
“Hmm?” He thought he heard something. “What was that?” He wasn‟t sure whether or
not anyone could be out there, but he had to check in case if somebody got lost. He put his long brown coat on and headed out. When he closed the door behind him, he realized just how cold it really was. He rubbed his arms and thought he heard something again.
