Get Off The Highway

By slouching  over the broken steering wheel like an octogenarian, I could just see through a spot of clear glass in the shattered windshield. My breath came in gasps. My left leg felt numb, far away. I could feel blood running down my face and neck.

My ruined car was making hideous sounds– the fender scraping the ground, the clatter of the fan hitting the radiator.

One thing at a time, I told myself. Just get off the highway. 

I did not want to think about the girl, about why she had chosen my car to jump in front of.

    Terrifying story that could happen to anyone being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Excellent. I fully intend to take part in the new fiction prompt when I can find the time to join in – great idea!
