Author's note: this is an idea I had and I'm just feelin it out see if anyone takes interest in the story. Hope you gus enjoy.
Beep. Beep. Beep. The light is so bright, my eyes strain to open and are immediately hurt but the light. It burns my eyes. I feel the rush of wind pushing against me as voice- dozens of voices-mumble back and forth and call out my name. Nathaniel, Nate. They call out but I can't answer. I'm not even sure what the fuck happened. I tried to open my eyes once more with success. But everything is blurry. The ceiling is a ugly green lime (god this person has horrible taste) with large square lights; each as bright as the damn sun. I see a man in blue towering over me. He drawed his face closer to mines as he tries to speak to me.
"Nathaniel Shepard?" he called out. "Can you hear me son?"
I twist my head back and forth, everything is still so foggy. I look back to the man as his face becomes a litte bit clearer. His eyes are small and hazel, there are crowfeets at the corners of his eyes. "What happened?" I mumbled but I could barely get the words out. It was hard to open my mouth; it hurt like hell.
"You're gonna be alright." he said. The man pulled up a mouth mask, it white but stands out like a zit when it put against the white blue suit and cap he wearing. What did he mean I was going to be alright? What happened? I heard the door swing open as they shut tight behind me. The wind stop pushing against me. I feel like the pushing has stopped. A large light is place above me as it shine awfully bright on me. I shut my eyes tight.
1 hour before
I cranked up the volume. Matellic was playing on the radio. Nothing like hard cord rock to sweeten my day. I'm with my best girl Robyn and tonight the night I'm going to propose. Yeah it kind of clichic, proposing to her during our senoir year. But hey fuck it right? We adults and it time we started choosing our lives. Just god I hope I don't fuck it up. I'm not great at this romance crap. I try for Robyn but I'm not the dude to say everything I feel and sing her a damn song. No sorry I can't do that. My gaze shifts from the road to Robyn and I got to say she looks amazing. Her long wavy black hair is pulled up into a bun; which just show off her neck and her long flawless back. Oh thank god for low back cut dresses. It a neon blue color but honestly I could care less about the color. I just can't get over how great she looks in it.
She has no idea that I've been planning this big surprise for months. Actually no one does. But hey if she says yes I'm going to scream it from my room about how fucking lucky I am. My hands are tight around the wheel but that cause they keep slipping from all the sweat. I'm fine. Okay alright I'm damn nervous. I wipe my hand virgously on my suit which kills the point of borrowing my dad's suit. Robyn smies at me. I guess she notice how idoitic I've been acting. She place her hand on my thigh as she rubs her hand back and forth.
"You okay?" she asked. Her voice is like an angel. God that souns cheesy right but it is. It soft and gentle and it drives me wild when she says my name.
I looked back at her a I grinned at me; my cheesy crooked grin. But she loves it and she start to giggle as she watch my face. "Yeah." I grabbed her hand and hold it within mine as I stoke her soft skin.. I look deep within her eyes. "This is our night Robyn."
She returns the smile but suddenly her face turn to horror as her eyes widen. Robyn hands fly up. "Nate watch out!!" she screamed. My face turns back to the road but it too late. A bright light flash as a truck is heading start towards us. I turned the wheel but it doesn't help. The car spins and stop as the truck colliades against the car. The truck hit Robyn's side and I see her head fly back and forth as the truck shoved us. My head fling forward as it crashed against the wheel. A large rush of pain flooded my body. And that when everything went black.
When I awoke I was dangling from my seat. The had been flipped over and the only thing that held me was the seat belt. I qucikly look over to Robyn. I had to make sure she was okay. "Robyn!" I cried but her eyes were lifeless as blood pour across her face. Her forehead is bashed in. I could see her skull peeking from beneath her white skin. Robyn's arms hangs loosely as the car shook. Lights of all sort of colors flash repeatedly and brightly: blue, red, and white. It the color of the flag but why does it scream to me death.
"Robyn." I called softly. "Please Robyn." My face grew hot as my eyes began to get watery.
It wasn't til a week that I came to. A week til I found out the truth: Robyn died but me. No I survived. I was the reason she was dead. If I only had pay attention to the fucking road she would still be here with me. But no she died and I lived. Why? I tried to hold back the tears but they came. I waited for my mom and the doctor to get back. I was being release today. I sat back in the wheelchair apparently it a requireent for you to use one to leave the hospital. The door squealed open as my mom came back. A smile was plastered on her face but it doesn't reach her eyes. They are just as sad as mine.
"You ready Nate?" she asked kneeling net to me as she rubbed my back.
I tired to look her in the eye but I can't. I just nod back.
