"It'll be ok, Maxine." I knew I was lying, and she did too, but I couldn't help but hope.
Our parents had decided we should go camping. They'd thrown us in the car with out even thinking to get camping gear. My dad with his dumb driving, drove us right of a cliff. Both our parents had died, I had a broken leg, and Maxine had some nasty cuts and a broken wrist. I'd managed to climb back up the cliff to look for help. It'd only been a couple hours ago, but I was sure we'd lost so much blood it wasn't worth it to look for help.
I am almost sixteen, and she's six. She's very smart, even understands some of the math I have to do.It wasn't fair that her life would end so soon.
"Are we going to die?" She looked up at me with her huge, dark blue eyes, and I couldn't lie to her, even to protect her.
"I think so. I'm sorry."
"It's not your fault."
'Whoosh' The bushes in front of us moved.
"Get under me." I got on my hands and knees, and Maxine crawled under me. It probably wouldn't even make a diffrence, with my bad leg, but I had to try. Anything to make her life last longer.
The bushes behind us moved, and Maxine whimpered.
"Show yourself!" I yelled, thinking I sounded pretty dumb, but of course I only thought of that after I said it.
"We wouln't bite!" I heard a girl say, and a boy laughed.
