THIS WILL BE MY FINAL ENTRY
On Beth's thoughts before she goes to meet her destiny.
BETH WILDER: July 4th, 2010. I've spent years in denial. About what I saw, about it's inevitability. The End of Time. I wanted to believe that maybe Jack was right. Maybe all this could be undone. Erased. I looked for proof, a loophole. Something.
Jack's parents died in a car crash. 1999. I thought... maybe if I could stop it from happening, if that were possible, then...
I failed. I failed every time. Every time I tried to make things right. This is our destiny. The good and the bad, intrinsically tied to this path. It can't be bent, it can't be broken. No matter whether we succeed or fail, it still comes.
I see it every night in my dreams. Scraping away at my mind. The End of Time is coming. And the only way I've been able to keep sane is by focusing on the present. What's here, now, in front of me. But today, today is different.
My whole life I've had a mission. I'm gonna see it through. Even if there's no hope. Even if we fail. This is what I was meant to do. And I know what happens next. This will be my final entry.
