Predict

She couldn’t believe she was actually there. As Sage sat in the office of her dad's bank, watching him smiling that fake smile while nodding and lecture about “increasing prices” and all that stuff that other bank managers talked about through the glass wall. It was her birthday for Pete's sake. How did she even get into this mess?It was bad enough that she was even living with him after the breakup. 

The breakup. 

Her head nearly exploded with anger as she sat in the plush leather brown couch. She took one more look at her dad and grabbed the keys from the desk. I don’t care what he says, she thought. I don’t care if I end up in juvie. I’m doing it.

Yet as she marched through the door, she hesitated, the breakup, well that got her going. Sage didn’t even take a second glance at her dad's new navy blue Chevrolet Compact design as she filed into the front seat. She squeezed her eyes shut along with the keys that lay in her sweaty palm, took a hollow deep breath and inserted the key in.  It revved to life and she backed out of the lane like her old girl scouts director had showed her troop to.

Sage drove for an hour, touring the streets of Arizona, blinding out her thoughts which willed her to think of the consequences, when it hit her. A wave of panic and guilt crashed over her.

 I’m 14? What was I thinking? 

She guided the wheel to make the car turned backwards and just as she got out of the lane her bumper collided against another and her pale blonde hair covered her eyes as she toppled into a splintering mess..... and blacked out.

*****

Sage woke up. But not in a hospital bed, but in her own room. She let out an over exaggerated sigh. Got up and hopped downstairs to the kitchen where her dad sat waiting, just like she’d seen in the beginning of her dream.

“No dad, I’m not going to the bank with you.” Sage chirped as her dad opened her mouth and look stunned just like he had when she had prevented another incident from happening four days before.

Mr.Myers stunned face quickly vanished as he started speaking. “Sage, I want none of that nonse-.” 
 
Sage raised her eyebrows. Surprising her dad as she put in, “If you value your car, yes, your new Chevrolet, you’ll listen.”Then she marched up to her bedroom, thinking, mom would be so proud if she knew  I got a hold of my gift.. Sage was glad she had prevented something from happening again, but if only she didn’t make it so obvious. She had to keep it hidden. She took a sip of her warm coffee, which was cushioned in the the sleeve of her springtime green robe she’d gotten from Kohl's. But only after predicting what I want, she thought.

What I want.
