Slow down. Im scared.
Guy: No this is fun.
Girl: No its not. Please, its too scary!
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down!
Guy: Now give me a BIG hug.
Girl hugs him
Guy: Can you take my helmet off & put it on yourself? its bugging me.
(In the paper the next day):
A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of break failure. 2 people were on it, but only 1 survived.
The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his breaks broke, but he didn't want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him & felt her hug one last time, then had her wear his helmet so that she would live even though it meant that he would die.

She told him to slow down "I'm scared",
he told her it was fun,
even though deep down he knew,
his time on earth was done.
The brakes had failed on his bike,
he did not know what to do,
instead he asked for one big hug,
one last I love you.
Take my helmet he said,
it's really bothering me,
she placed the helmet on her head,
the road she could not see.
She heard the metal creaking,
as it hit hard concrete,
she was thrown off the bike,
she did not land on her feet.
When the dizzyness had left her,
she took the helmet off,
looked in the direction of smoke,
she stood rooted to the spot.
Her arms and legs were bleeding,
she walked slowly to the wreck,
"I love you so much."
Were the last things to him she said.
She collapsed beside him,
weeping for her love,
the police sirens could be heard,
as she lay in a pool of blood.
When the police officers asked her,
what had happened on the road,
using her last strength,
this is the story that she told.
"The truth was that halfway down the road,
my boyfriend realized that his breaks had broke,
but he didn't want to let me know.
Instead, he had me say I loved him,
and felt my hug one last time,
then had me wear his helmet so that I would live,
even though it meant that he would die."
