 Marjun though about it for a long time then agreed, her nerves were on the outside of her clothes but nothing could be allowed to stop the wedding. Marjun though about it for a long time then agreed, her nerves were on the outside of her clothes but nothing could be allowed to stop the wedding.
  ​=====Leaving on a jetplane ​ =====  ​=====Leaving on a jetplane ​ =====
-While on the plane the sister receives a text message from her brother who has sent a friend ​to pick up a wallet that he forgot, ​the friend has found the house completely empty and abandoned, Bogi has then investigated futher through his banking friends and found that no payments have arrived and that it seems his sisters bank account has been emptied by the husband less than an hour ago. He knows it is not easy to get this news now and he has done everything he can to cancel all cards etc. but the money is gne. He has reported to police but it being england it will not be easy to do much unbtil a formal complaint is lodged by sister etc.+Gregor had taken her to the airport. They had spent the morning at a café and even managed ​to take a brief stroll in the park before heading out.
  
 +In the departure lounge he had smiled and kissed away a tear from her cheek. "​Remember just two pills right before you get on board, then you'll be okay." he said with that smile of his and gone was the feeling of dismay that had been building inside her since yesterday.
  
 +While Marjun was not happy about it, she did as she was told. She had not touched as much as a painkiller, since going cold turkey all those years ago and she was afraid how it might affect her, but she kept repeating to herself, it is only this once, it is only this once.
  
-Hert begins pounding, Marjun ​takes 3 more pills flushes down with big glass of whisky.+The flight turned out quite pleasant not at all what she had imaginedthey even had on board Internet access and Marjun ​started up chat session with Bogi.
  
-During inflight the plane starts vibrating almost in sync with Marjuns heart, the pilot seems to hold off his approach and heads towards leynar he follows the valley and it seems like he plans an emergency splash landing at kollafjørd in similar fashion as to the emergency landing on boston river+Hello Bogi... she wrote.
  
-The airplane crashes ​into a mountain+The time lag was not too unbearable, the answer however was. 
 + 
 +I do not know how to write this... 
 + 
 +I had forgotten my shaving and toilet gear and I send my friend Andrew whom I studied with over to your place and he told me your place was empty... Abandoned... the landlord said that Gregor had cancelled the lease and that you still owe for this months rent. 
 + 
 +I got a little scared so I investigated further through a banking friend of mine and no payments have arrived for the hotel, the caterer or the band and that it seems your bank accounts have been emptied completely, everything has been transfered to an offshore account by your husband to be based on a power of attorney, please tell me you did not give him one.  
 + 
 +I have asked to cancel both your credit cards but the bank can't stop the things already spent legitimately and if it is all a mistake they can reopen the cards in the branch office. 
 + 
 +I tried to report the  matter to the police but they have told me that before they get a formal complaint from you they can't do anything and they also added that this being England it is almost impossible to get anything done about it, something about Brits and economic crime. 
 + 
 +I knows it is not easy to get this news now and I have done everything I can to stop this from turning ​into a total disaster. 
 + 
 +I tried to leave a message to you at the airport to call me immediately. 
 + 
 +Her heart began pounding, Marjun had been busy rummaging through her purse so she had not paid attention to what the lady at the check in counter had said, was it something about a message. Gregor had just smiled and said everything was under control. What was happening ? 
 + 
 +She fumbled through the things in her purse, while beckoning to get the attention of a stewardess. 
 + 
 +The stewardess was quick to respond. "Can I help you with anything ?" she asked in a very pleasant voice. 
 + 
 +"Could I get a big glass of Whisky no ice, I know I shuld have asked when the trolley came by I didn't notice... you know internet,"​ Marjun tried to smile back at the stewardess. 
 + 
 +"No problem mam," the flight attendant said and whisked off to the back of the plane. 
 + 
 +Moments later she returned with a big glass. Marjun thanked her deeply and no sooner than she was done, then the stewardess was on her way to attend to a child suffering from motion sickness. 
 + 
 +Marjun took the remaining 3 pills and flushed them down gulping down the whisky in just a few giant gulps, she almost vomited but managed to keep a lid on the reflex then she closed her eyes and began crying. 
 + 
 +Marjun did not react to the fasten seatbelts sign coming on and she felt odd it was as if the plane began vibrating almost in sync with her heart. 
 + 
 +Marjun looked out, the hillsides looked ominous and not at all pleasant as they usually did on approach. 
 + 
 +Marjun looked at her fellow passengers, nobody seemed the wiser, the chatter was still going on as if nothing was afoot. 
 + 
 +She looked out the window again, something was wrong this was definately not the standard approach why could she see Leynar beach ? 
 + 
 +There was a thud and the airplane seemed to loose airspeed. 
 + 
 +The plane began shaking violently the plane seemed to follow the valley and to Marjun the emergency splash landing of Jan 15 2009 by the US Airways jetliner on the Hudson River came to mind, only this was Kollafjørd and in rough weather. 
 + 
 +Marjun closed her eyes, there was a tremendous noise from the airplane which sounded like it was being torn to pieces, Marjun screamed.
  
  ===== rubble ​ =====  ===== rubble ​ =====
-Describe ​smoke+The smoke was thick and parts lay strewn out across the hillside. Marjun could hear nothing but the sound of burning grass and in the distance a sheep was bleeting. Marjun felt as if her throat was being crushed by the rope of a hangmans neuce.  ​
  
-choking feeling+She fought to open her eyes but could not make out any other people.
  
-parts strewn ​out+Suddenly Bogi was there and helped her out of the burning wreckage saving only her everyone else seemed to be dead.
  
-Suddenly her brother is there and helps her out of the wreckage saving hereveryone else seem to die+"Hang in there Sis", Bogi pleaded "​Everything is going to be all right.
 + 
 +She heard sirens arriving from somewhere in the distance, she tried desperately ​to hold on to Bogi's hand but as the paramedics put her on the gurney everything went black.
  
  ===== back at the hospital ​ =====  ===== back at the hospital ​ =====
  
-For the third time in his life Bogi was back at the hospital, this time waking over his sister +For the third time in his life Bogi was back at the hospital ​in Tórshavn, this time waking over his sister ​who had been hooked up to ventilator. When the plane landed she had been in hysterical state screaming. She had lost consciousness the moment she was put on the gurney. It seemed she was in som kind of drug and alcohol induced state and the doctors did what they could to cleanse out her system. But as they said it was up to Marjun to wake up by herself.
-The sister goes into coma for about year+
  
-Describe brother by bedside, ​reading, tearing - looking for small signs+Bogi was trustily sitting at her bedside, ​from time to time Isabella and the kids were there as well.
  
-Doctors explaining ​the situationher brain has shut down to low level, uncertain if she'll wake up+Then one day an alarm went off, Bogi jumped up and ran into the hallway"There's something wrong!"​ he shouted. A red ligth over the door was flashing.
  
-domnt talk in front of her etc.+The nurse brushed him aside and moments later a doctor came running.
  
 +They worked feverishly, Marjun seemed to be in convulsions,​ it was the first sign of any bodily activity she had shown since she was brought in.
 +
 +A nurse led him out into the hallway.
 +
 +"It is better if you wait out here," she said and put a hand on his shoulder to calm him down.
 +
 +Bogi desperately wanted to be in there. "What is happening?"​ he asked.
 +
 +"​It'​s the damn ventilator, there'​s a problem,"​ the nurse answered very tired.
 +
 +"Well then hook her up to another one that can't be so hard," Bogi said with disbelief
 +
 +"There isn't another, this was the last one not in use already, they even had to use all their skills to get it working, it is such bad timing, if there had been no hotel fire then we would have had three of them, but now..."​ the nurse was not proud to be the bringer of bad tidings.
 +
 +"But what about Marjun?"​ Bogi asked desperately.
 +
 +"Well if she begins breathing on her own then time will tell, otherwise..."​ the nurse lifted her shoulders "Only God can tell," she added.
 +
 +Bogi was too distraught to give the nurse his opinion on God and settled for waiting. As if by a miracle Marjun kept breathing.
 +
 +Day in and day out Bogi was by the bedside, he was happy that the beeps and bleets of the ventilator were gone and Marjun had been moved to a single room out of the intensive care unit.
 +
 +various doctors did their best to explaining the situation for Bogi, he had to understand that her brain had shut down to a very low level, it was uncertain if she would ever wake up.
 +
 +Bogi did his best to keep his opinion to himself and kultiple times respectfully requested that the personnel kept their opinions about Marjuns state to themselves while they were in the room with her, as medical evidence indicated that people in coma could actually hear what was going on around them.
 +
 +A year passed this way. Bogi still came to the hospital every day. He was reading the news to her, discussing the goings on of the land and had even gotten into the habit of reading bedtime stories for her.
 +
 +He was at the end of a particularly beautiful fairy tale called "The story of a lonely girl", a gripping tale about a girl, that in the winter of her life found out that she was not so lonely after all, that Marjun woke up.
 +
 +"That was so beautiful",​ she said.
 +
 +"​What?"​ Bogi muttered not quite realizing that his sister was talking to him.
 +
 +"The birds..."​ Marjun answered coughing slightly.
 +
 +Then it dawned upon Bogi, Marjun, she was awake!
  ===== A new dawn  =====  ===== A new dawn  =====
  
-The books ends with her waking ​up again, ​+Marjun and Bogi were sitting at the beach watching the sunset. It had taken time but after intensive training Marjun had regained enough strength so that she could leave the hospital for minor escursions. Bogi had put her in a car and gone to Leynar beach. 
 + 
 +She snuggled ​up to Bogi who put his arm around her. He offered her a cup of tea from the thermos.
  
 +"I can't believe there was no crash,"​ Marjun said looking towards Vagoy holding the airport.
  
-and she and her brother are sitting on the beach looking at the sun set.+"Well there was, it was just your own personal crash,"​ Bogi said gently.
  
-isn't that where ?+"I can tell you this, I'll never fly again,"​ Marjun answered
  
-yes+"I undestand,"​ Bogi said with a smile.
  
-But+She elbowed him, "Not fly like that dumbarse"​.
  
-Remember before you left ?+"What?" Bogi answered innocently.
  
-She looked for long time while pondering ​the chain of events+And right there in the dusk sitting on carpet on Leynar beach Marjun giggled. To Bogi her laughter sounded like the song of an angel.
  
 +The End
