Running For You

Ella and Gowan were a happy, perfect couple. Ella was a Peace Core volunteer, and Gowan was one of the best runners in the country. Then the bombing at the Boston Marathon changed all that.


As far as I know, there was no Ella or Gowan at the 2013 Boston Marathon, but there was a Krystle Campbell, Martin Richard, and Lu Lingzi. They all lost their lives on April 15, 2013 while watching the Boston Marathon. This story is dedicated to all of them, and to their families. We miss you, we love you, and you will never be forgotten.

3. Ella

The world was black. Pitch black. Ella reached out for a light switch, but couldn't find anything. There was no switch, no wall, just space. She reached down to touch the floor, but found only air. Ella silently started to panic. She had to be floating, but how was that possible? Then she heard a far off voice calling to her. She closed her eyes and consternated on the words.

"Ella," it cried. "Ella, you've got to wake up. Come on Ella." Her eyes shot open. It was Gowan. He was here somewhere, he had to be. She started to scoop her arms around the air, as if to swim through the dark abyss. Suddenly, the invisible force that kept her aloft gave way, and Ella tumbled down through the blackness.
