Standing on the sodden ground, looking out from the cliff that hung over the gently crashing waves of the ocean, she stood with a look of determination and pain on her face. Her brilliant blue eyes shone much dimmer than was usual on her ash white face, and small streams of water fell ever so silently to the mass of water so far below.

It was destined to happen, at one time or another. This event had actually been fated by a higher power, and she had absolutely no control over this at all, though many would argue that this was all in her head, the head of someone filled with too much despair and dread to properly think. But the overwhelming truth was that all that had caused her strife, the many deaths, the vast pools of blood, were all decided years before she had even graced this confusing and devastating earth.

The waves below her seemed to mutter a single word, constantly repeating itself with each soft meet of the cliff side. Over and over, until it seemed the words were actually being spoken within her shaken mind, the voice of one she had never heard before. JUMP. JUMP. JUMP.

Wind formed and began to beat the long blonde hair of the sixteen year old, began to strangle her slender body and drag her closer to the edge, to what would most surely be her oblivion. And yet she did not fight with an ounce of her strength, but seemed instead to lean into the pull and follow the wind that was growing stronger.

Footsteps, approaching as fast as they could as the wind seemed to make a barrier between the two people. A voice shouted out, but was carried away from the girl who was about the reach the edge and plunge into the black, beating waves and swirling water.

All emotion, all senses, seemed to flee the girl as the wind succeeded in pulling her to the destined end. Never was it for her that she meet this freezing water, have her lungs fill until it was not possible to take another breath. She would never know this, though, because the one who had struggled against the barrier would not succeed in his rescue. He would succeed only in being led down his now open path that had been closed before this death.

NO!

The single shout rang through the crisp air as the wind abruptly died down, but beneath the thrashing waves she was much to far away to hear him. Too far away, as her body gave way to the escaping soul, a victim of fate just so that the other would fulfill what needed to be done to save the somewhat undeserving lives who caused this all. Never would the truth be known about the cause, though, because they needed the secret for their own souls.

And so on the cliff, vast power begins to radiate, and with the final scream of agony it is clear that the death has begun his way of destiny.

Redrawn Infinity

I can relate to that... Though perhaps the ending "He would never realize the ones actually behind the death of his beloved..." isn't needed for this, seeing as it just focuses on her pain.
