Chapter 1: An abrupt landing
For me, it was going to be an average day. I was going to go Christmas shopping for my family, last-minute, like usual. But wouldn't ya' know, it wasn't meant to be.
I suppose I should start with myself. My name's Alex, and I'm 14 years old. I'm your typical teenager, with girl problems, school, and all that other crap. Well, that's all you'll need to know about me...
I was driving on the highway, doing 65. I knew I was speeding, but seeing as to how I was 14, that didn't seem to trouble me. I was doing at least 3 illegal things right now. I was in my mom's car, a Lexus RX330. It was old, but it wouldn't draw attention to me. I was enjoying driving, but I knew I had to be careful. I would catch Hell if I got caught. Little did I know, that was gonna be the least of my problems.
I was moving from one lane to the other, trying to weave through traffic to get to the next offramp. But sadly, some idiot that really shouldn't have been driving decided to ram right into the side of me. I swerved out of control, my head spinning, and crashed into the barrier separating the two sides of the highway. Everything went black.
I awoke once more, still in the car, in pain, crying, with blood splattered everywhere. Then I realized, with what little strength I had left. It was my blood. At that thought, I blacked out once more. This time, I wasn't going to wake up in that wretched car.
