At that moment I was wishing I would pass out, but all I could do was stair out the window as we were stuck in the long line of cars. I gaped and shouted occasionally at the trees that blew and hit the roof of the car and made me jump higher each time.
"Calm down!" Courtney jumped and hit the ceiling, making me laugh hysterically.
"Courtney," I said slowly while almost jumping out of the car.
"What Annie?" she said impatiently.
"Look out the window, and hurry." Abel scooted himself towards me and wrapped his arm around me and tried to calm my thumping heart.
Courtney's green eyes widened and met mine for a minute or two and then charged as fast as her car would go up the street which was now empty.
I left Abel's face from my gaze and looked at the waves rising more and more. Courtney stopped looking at them and focused on the road; under the circumstances that the rain was pouring down harder than hail could and the lightning and thunder boomed to the beat of my heart. I ignored the thump-thumps.

"Annie?!" Courtney screamed deeply for my name.
It felt as if I wasn't awake enough to move, but I was in pain; what had happened?
I tried to move but my arms were stuck somehow, and my legs kicked up in the air, smacking something at the same time that felt like metal.
"Abel!?" Courtney's voice cracked and I could tell she was crying.
I slid the lids of my eyes off and saw I was on the empty road that remained the same, only I wasn't in a car anymore.
The car parts surrounded me; broken. The car door was on my left arm and my right arm was clutching the seat belt that made me knuckles turn white and it wasn't attatched to the back of a seat anymore, but to the palm of my hand.
"Courtney!" I screamed as loud as I could against the waves crashing not too far away.
"Annie?!" she ran to me and pushed the car door off of me.
I released my grip from the seatbelt strap and hugged her tightly.
"Where's Abel?" I squeezed my jaw together.
"Oh, Annie, I'm really sorry but. . ." she trailed off but cleared her throat and said, "he fell into the waves, Annie." she cried.
I shook my head and closed my eyes tightly and then looked over the bridge wall to look at the waves, they had seemed to calm down around here and I started to run down the road until I could walk into the water.
Once I got there, Courtney was still following me, thinking I was commiting suicide or something. Ugh.
I walked into the water and searched all around for any sight of Abel, any sign, any clothes; him. And at that moment, a lump in my throat was growing drastically fast, and it hit me harder than a wave could've. Able was---I gulped deeply---gone; and if he was alive, I would never see him again, and this I knew.
"Annie!' Courtney cried my name and I looked up to where she was also glancing, and I saw a helicopter with the rope being slid down on by a man who was bulgy and he picked me and Courtney up and the ladder-rope went back to the helicopter.
