(Slivers of you)
?????????
(Written from the perspectives of both characters)
A boy and a girl who had both had a tramatic experience in their childhood as they grow up they begin having flashes into each others lives. Soon they begin to realize that they are somehow connected and based on those flashes they work to find each other ( have been living on their own since they were young) however what they don't know is that the person who they have flashes into also has flashes into their life so it causes some confusion. There is someone wanting to capture them because of this unique ability, he is a very rich scientist who tricks the girl into going with him saying he can lead them to the other person. But then the girl escapes and is very causious not to reveal anything else about the boy (because when the scientist first took the girl in she told him what she had seen into the boys life so that it might help find him.) however the boy remains unaware that anyone even wants to capture them. The girl realizes she'll need to find the boy quick before he gets caught too.
There comes a point where they stop having flashes into each others lives and they become worried that the other one has died. Both go into a deep depression because over time they looked forward to these flashes it became something they lived for. When the boys girlfriend who had always loved him and supported him is murdered in front of him he snaps and attacks the man with bare fists being stabbed in the process only after the man is dead on the ground does he call the police who write it off as self defence. Thats when the flashes come back to the girl who sees what happenend to the boys girlfriends attacker but not what he did to the boys girlfriend and becomes scared of the boy for he killed that man and gives up on finding him. However fate has other plans and while walking home from school the girl is hit by a van sent by the scientist after he learned of her escape. 
They are admitted to the same hospital the  boy also begins to have flashes and it just so happens that he saw the room number she was in on the way in. So he drags himself out of bed and over to her room covered in his own blood he opens the door quietly getting his first look at the girl he shared pieces of his life with and he thinks shes the only one that could possibly understand what hes going through, when she wakes up from a nightmare about what he did to the murderer and she sees a man covered in blood standing by the door, naturally she screams and her nurse comes running in to see a man covered in blood standing by the door she calls secuirity who come and take the boy back to his room kicking and screaming and just as he is dragged out the door he whispers you're the one from the flashes then he is gone. The next day the boy wakes up and wipes the tears from his eyes (he had had a dream about his girlfriend) and a deep hopelessness washes over him. The girl still a little shocked from last night, is being treated by her nurse when she remembers what the boy said while being dragged away it was so weird, but he could have just been insane to say something like that. However she asked her nurse about him and the nurse told her that he was a patient at the hospital and thats all she knew. So the girl debates whether she should go to see him or not. When she finally asks to see him the nurse wouldn't let her becuse first he was dangerous and second he couldn't have visitors. So late that night she snuck out of bed. Once she had snuck on to a hospital computer using the card she swiped from the nurses pocket she looked up all admissions from the day she was admitted, she recognised his face and wrote down his room number. After she had tricked his securitiy into thinking that she was lost then circleing back she sneaks into the room and sees the boy about to kill himself, then she screams no and jumps on him swatting the knife away she wraps her arms tightly around him and whispered  don't worry its me. The thinking he had gone insane because his girlfriend had just stopped him from killing himself ( or so he thought) and he didn't care so being so tired and hurting both emotionally and physically cried himself to sleep in her arms. The next morning the nurses come in to find this scene (a boy with tears streaming down his face in the arms of a girl who was also crying peacfully in her sleep) the nurses called secuirity. The boy is dragged away limp after struggling and being knocked out. The girl simply smiled because she had finaly found the person who she had shared her life with. When the boy wakes up he realizes that he might never see the girl again he lays back with his head against the pillow and tries not to cry that when he feels something in the pocket of his hospital gown. He takes it out and realizes its a note from the girl. It tells him a date and time to meet her when he gets out of the hospital. Because with the guard outside there is no chance he'll sneak out again. Time passes and while the girls friends and family come to visit her, her best friend becomes suspisious of all the strange things that have been happening to the girl, first she went missing and the girl had told her she had gotten lost, next she is hit by a van while crossing the street now there is a strange guy who broke into her room. She decides she needs to talk to the girl alone. So she arranges a meeting with her after she gets out of the hospital. Over a cup of of coffee the girl fills her friend in on what's happening she even tells her about the flashes and traumatic experience she had.
