"We were young, impetuous, and invincible. We weren't supposed to die."
The story of Cory, Wren and Lilly.


by jjmaree2003

Wren had been my best friend since we were five years old.

I was the kid that constantly had his finger up his nose, and drool trailing down their chin.

But Wren and Lilly didn't care.

They were twins. Not identical.

He had blue hair in high school.

She had blonde.

When we graduated, we took a trip.

Down by Avon Lake, we made so many memories.

My name is Cory Fitzgerald.

Not that it matters.

I have a story to tell you.

It's not a happy one.

Wren, Lilly and I were on our way home.

It was foggy.

There were trucks everywhere.

But that didn't stop us.

We were young,


and invincible.

Nothing would slow us down.

Or so we thought.

We should have stopped.

But we were desperate to feel the warm hugs of our mothers.

One of the trucks tipped.

I watched my best friend get thrown through the windshield.

And his sister burn to death.

I screamed.

It was shrill.

Cutting through my vocal chords like a blunt knife.

I got pulled from the wreck.


But it didn't last long.

The smell of burning diesel filled my nose.

Smoke impaled my lungs.

I knew that first breath of oxygen was curse.

I died that day.

Just like they did.

All they needed was each other.

I never told Lilly.

I never told her I loved her.

I don't understand.

I don't understand a lot of things.

But mostly, why?

Why did we have to die that day?

Why us?

Why not someone else?

We were young,


and invincible.

We weren't supposed to die.
