Author's Note: I honestly don't have any idea where this came from, I just got bored.


Was It Worth It?

I never thought that it would end like this. I had always imagined that I was different. Special. That something spectacular was going to happen to me, that I was going to be somebody.

But I had never imagined this.

It's ironic really, a straight "A" student killed by stupidity. I never would have seen it coming, not in a million years. I mean, I had always heard that it was dangerous. I had seen all the commercials, warning signs and awareness posters, but I had just never thought it could happen to me you know? I guess now I'm paying the price for thinking like that.

I don't really remember much. I was driving somewhere, to meet a friend maybe? I honestly have no idea, but I guess it doesn't really matter now. While I was driving, I heard a familiar chime. My phone was going off, and normally I would have waited to check it. But a quick peak just this once couldn't hurt could it?

It was a text message. Something funny, something that made me laugh. I can't even remember what it was, but I will never forget what happened next.

I glanced back up at the road, and to my horror saw a semi truck speeding towards me.

I had drifted onto the wrong side of the road.

In hindsight, I probably should have done something. Grabbed the wheel, tried to swerve out of the way, anything. But I was absolutely frozen. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't force myself to move. It was the longest 5 seconds of my life.

And then everything went black.

There's only one more thing I can remember and that was the pain. Oh God it hurt so bad. I couldn't see, couldn't hear, all that I could feel was that unbearable pain. And then there was nothing.

Who knew? Who knew that someone like me would go like that? What am I now, just a statistic? Isn't it just so sad, I can't even remember what that silly little text said. And, to be honest, I don't really care. I just know one thing.

Whatever it was, it wasn't worth it.

No text was worth my life.

End


Final Thoughts: Wow, that actually turned out a little better than expected. Still could use some more work though.
