Everything goes dark and quiet, suddenly I can hear a voice screaming, but just can’t seem to wake up. I feel very weak and tired, like I haven’t slept for days. Little did I know that Razz was dying next to me in the car and the screaming that I could hear was the sound of sirens coming…

Chapter 1:  WHAT A PERFECT LIFE WE SHARE.

 

As I got up this morning with the sun shining in my window as I role over in bed I look at my girlfriend Razz and just stare at her beauty, still in shock on how a girl so nice and pretty would ever be with a goober like me.  But hey she lives with me now, after years of her father beating her really badly, while her mother couldn’t take the time out of her own busy life to come and see the only daughter that she has, so sad but true.We live each day as it comes share the same passion for the same things, such as we both love cars. 

Razz and I saved up our money to buy a VS SS Commodore, we got the car pretty cheap I thought.  But hoons that we are it didn’t have enough power for us, so yeah of course we planned to take our pride and joy to another level.  Razz and I started work on it strapping a twin turbo set up on the 5litre, took some time to do but hey we enjoyed every minute of it. 

 We lived like any other hoon where you work all week only to wish it was the weekend, come Friday and you’re so happy that it’s the start of that different world that we all choose to live by, where nothing else matters.  Not the bills that we have to pay or what we need to do next in life.  None of that is a worry because this is the world where we put all of this behind us just to enjoy the things that millions of us share, that one passion that we all love.

So its Friday as I get home from work Razz is already home, as I look at her washing the car in a low cut hot pink/purple dress I suddenly hit the skids in my car nearly running into the mail box.  Razz says, “That’ll teach you for perving babe.”Ok so true I was perving and day dreaming while trying to park, but hey what male doesn’t. Back to the story, I gave Razz a kiss and asked how her day was, she said it was fine but she was so happy that we have the weekend to share with one and other like always.  God she knows how to make me smile, we finish washing the car together.The phone inside rings so I go inside to answer it, as I am talking on the phone I can hear a male’s voice outside swearing and yelling.  I hang the phone up and go outside only to see that’s right Razz’s bastard of an old man was out there going off at her.  I don’t know how he found her but he did and now I have to do something about it, so I run over there and with a swing of my right arm my fist hits the side of his chin.  Down he goes with a crack, I say now piss off and if you ever come near Razz again you will be sorry.  He gets into his ute and skids as he leaves up the street, Razz looks at me and just smiles. 

9:00pm Max and his wife have just arrived at our house, hey guys what are we all up too tonight he says.  I tell him you know same old shit we do every other Friday night silly, Max just laughs at me.  Me and Max have been best friends since grade 4, so we would help each other out when the other was in trouble.  Razz works with Max’s wife so they get along real good, So the girls are doing what they do best and taking hours at getting ready to go out and me and Max are doing the last minute touches on our cars because everyone knows that’s what guys do. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2:  WISH IT WAS A DREAM.

 

10:30pm Friday night Razz and I leave home with Max and his wife following behind us. Razz and I are in our Twin Turbo VS SS Commodore. So I start showing off, power skidding up the street as we go heading for the Coast, to Skid World.  Skid World is a place where all of the other Hoons like me go and race.  So were flying up the high way with the music pumping and the turbo dumping, I’m pulling about 140km in a 100km zone. Razz suddenly tells me that she wants to stop for a drink, so I hit the next exit and head for the nearest servo, it’s a B.P. Side-ways around the roundabout into the servo I go.

As Razz go’s into buy a drink, A Blue Ford Falcon pulls up to get fuel, it was dropped on its ass, really low. I say to myself ‘What a hunk of shit’, and then Razz comes out with her drink, I tell her ‘Look at that peace of shit’, than Razz says ‘Put a show on babe’, so I do. I give my Twin Turbo a couple of revs as the driver from the Ford looks he says ‘Get a FORD’, So I put the foot to the floor, smokes pissing off my rear tires as I leave the B.P drive-way I get my SS side-ways, fish tailing up the road as I hit the highway like a bat out of hell, I’m pulling 190km now. We get to the spot finally and there are a lot of cars up here, so I find a park and get out for a chat.  As I’m talking away to Max he drives a WRX turbo, some guy comes over to me and says that he wants to race me, so I tell him yeah you’re on. We line up at the traffic lights and the lights turn green with my foot to the floor as the turbo boost up and off I go hitting 180km like it’s no tomorrow, I go around the first bend and hit it sideways as I come up to the second one something seems to be wrong, the car starts to make a funny sound, it’s never made this before. But I want to win so I don’t take any worry of it and just put the foot down more as my car gets off the clock at 240km I lose traction in the rear tires sideways up hyper street, just can’t seem to gain control so I slam into the a power pole across the road, everything go’s dark and quiet. Suddenly I can hear a voice screaming, I just can’t seem to wake up.  I feel very weak and tired, like I haven’t slept for days.  Little did I know that Razz was dying next to me in the car and the screaming I could hear was the sound of sirens coming. 

4 weeks later after the horrific cash I wake up in hospital after being in a comer, I have this weird feeling inside of me.  It was like something was missing.  A nurse comes into the room along with 2 police officers.  They begin to tell me about that horrific night and proceed to tell my about the girl that died in the car, I just wanted to die than.  I just couldn’t stop thinking about my beautiful Razz and how I never got to say good bye or just to tell her that I love you. God how I wish this could be just a big dream and soon I will wake up next to my beautiful girlfriend with the sun shining down on her pretty face.  But who am I kidding, what’s done is done and there is no going back.It was the most stupid thing that I could of ever done with a perfect life that we shared.As the years go by it still hurts I can’t sleep at night, every time I close my eyes I can still see he face shinning with that beautiful sunset, I know that one day I’ll be with her sharing another passion.  But till than all I have is memories of life as a street hoon….
