Scenario 1 I was on my way home from school. School had seemed to last forever. During each class, the clock almost seemed to tick backwards. Each tick seemed to whisper to me that I would never escape the class. When the bell finally rung, my friend Elsie and I jumped in the car. We were going to drive to the library to get some studying in before our chem test. As per usual, we were jamming out to Taylor Swift and 80’s music, when my phone dinged. I knew immediately who it was. Without a second thought, I grabbed the phone from where it rested in the cup holder. It was Nathan. He hadn’t texted me in ages. A smile started to crawl on my face until I felt it. My body was thrown in the air, and I heard the sickening crunch of two cars colliding and the screech of metal on metal. I looked down to see blood. At first I thought it was mine, but then I looked over and saw Elsie, unconscious in the front seat, blood streaming out of her head. I began to scream for help. I heard sirens in the distance. I wondered if she would survive. Scenario 2 I was on my way home from school. School had seemed to last forever.

Can you see who texted me?” I asked keeping my eyes on the road. “Sure,” she replied. “It was Nathan. He wants to know if you are free on Friday,” “Ok, cool. Let’s text him later. I don’t want to seem too clingy” I joked. Then we finished singing every word to Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, as we arrived safely to the library. Choose the 2nd!
