I was young, happy, and foolish. Around me only the bright green of the grass and trees, and life was as it should be, good. As I neared my aunts house I noticed her car slowly moving back a few feet, then forward the same distance. Confused I walked up the short but steep hill that her driveway was on. When I was next to the car I saw it wasnt my aunt driving, but my cousin who was only 4 years older than myself. He had blond hair, blue eyes, and was very intelligent. Yet, I couldnt understand why he was driving. What are you doing?
I asked. My mom told me to warm up the car he replied. I was too young to realize he had avoided the question entirely. He got out of the car and asked if I wanted to try. I said I didnt, but he told me it was very easy and started making fun of me. Feeling very nervous I got into the drivers seat and closed the door. He leaned through the window to control the wheel and put the car in reverse. The car began to roll backwards and I felt more and more anxious. As it got close to the hill he told me to hit the brakes.
Absolute terror gripped me then because I was unable to reach them and the car had reached the hill. He began to yell louder for me to hit the brakes but couldnt. Suddenly my feet found a peddle, and I pressed it down as hard as I could, but the car didnt slow down. It seemed to speed up. I heard a scream and a loud BANG, then nothing. Silence? What had happened? I seemed to be thinking about everything and nothing at the same time. All at once my senses came back to me. Pain? I had hit my mouth on the steering wheel. Taste of leather? Also from the steering wheel. Smoke?
Must be from the car. Then I heard the screaming, a horrible screaming that sounded like a dying animal. IM GONNA DIE!!! PLEASE KILL ME NOW!!!! GOD HELP ME, PLEASE! Then I was outside the car. Did I even open the door? Did my feeble legs even support me? And where was the screaming coming from?! I looked up and saw my cousin, covered in blood, screaming and crying. I could see his bone through his leg. The blood was everywhere and I began to cry and scream for help. My legs could no longer support me and I fell. But then I was in my aunts house. How did I get here?
Did I even fall over? Where was my aunt? I yelled anything to get her to come. She finally wrapped in a towel. Then I heard the screaming again. Somehow I was outside and hear my cousin, wanting to die, and saw the blood that covered the street, and felt the pain in my mouth and head. I cried, and when I looked up, I was in my house. I ran to the window. Police cars and ambulances were everywhere. Across the street from my aunts house war her car, smashed into my neighbors front porch. My senses were gone. My heart seemed to stop. There was nothing after that.
