A Matter of Life and Death
written by: Joseph S. Roberts
It was Friday night after the big game, rain coming down like a monsoon. Thunder clapped; bolts of lightning shot to the ground. I couldn’t see a thing on the stretch of muddy road. The rain pinged against the car like bullets. I couldn’t be late getting home or my father would kill me for breaking my curfew. In my haste I forgot how sharp the turn was. The car slid; a power pole loomed. Last thing I heard was squealing brakes and a huge crash.
I was late getting home after all, but was on time for my funeral.
