I fell for you hard, and fast. In a world of darkness and depression, you quickly became my light. We met at a school event.. I wonder how my life would be different if I had never met you. You broke my heart. Over the phone. I still love you. I couldn’t bring myself to tell you in person. I’ve always been afraid of rejection. I couldn’t bear seeing you laugh in my face and walk off with her after calling me something awful. Instead, I did merely what practically everyone my age would do- tell you by a text message. I could easily “tell” you everything without seeing the smirk I was sure you would make. I thought of this plan one day after meeting you once again whilst driving home from school. Immediately, I sprang into action. It was now or never. I slipped the cell phone out of my pocket and began texting hastily, eyeing the road ahead of me when I could. I approached a red light and stopped. I, unbeknownst to me, pressed down the gas pedal. The car started to move down the intersection. “I can’t keep pretending anymore..” I had texted when I looked up from my cell. All I could see was a black car inches before me, causing me to freeze. I had no idea what to do. I heard a huge crack come from somewhere in my body before all of my senses stopped. All I saw was darkness.
A heart-wrenching scenario that serves as proof that texting and driving is deadly and unacceptable.
