“I love you too. I’m sorry.” I typed it out but didn’t get to hit send. I saw my life flash before my eyes. My car went off the road, flipped upside down. My head hurts and I feel the blood dripping down my forehead onto my cheek. Trapped I try to reach for my phone. I can’t reach, but my whole body hurts. I can’t move. I feel trapped and alone. I stay there, held by my seatbelt, and try to think about what I had done. I wish I hadn’t typed that text. I wish I had just waited. I shouldn’t have even been on the road. That argument was so stupid and he will never know that I didn’t mean what I said. We were fighting over something so irrelevant. I was going to send that text to say I am sorry. I need him to know that I love him and I am sorry. But now he never will.
