What if I Die?

Ashley W


Alex: I am so scared. I’ve never been more scared in my whole entire life. I-I….I thought that I was invincible. Maria, are you listening to me? Stop looking at the bandages, look me in the eyes. I thought that I was invincible. I looked down to change the song. I was sick of listening to my brother’s playlist, so I looked down to find another song and the car just…it just came out of nowhere. And…funny thing is that, that’s always what I’d make fun of people in movies for. Like, what? The car didn’t come out of nowhere. You were just being an idiot and not watching. But they really did come out of nowhere. All at once, the bumping and the hot pavement, and not being in the car, and feeling what it felt like to fly. The pavement was so hot. So hot. And in that second I thought that…maybe I wasn’t so invincible anymore. I almost lost you, and my brother, and my family, and breathing, and my life, and loving, and learning…just because I wanted to change the song. I don’t know what to do. What if I die?
