Second Chance

Extracts from this document...


Second Chance It is raining, a relentless downpour; it had begun in the early evening and had only become stronger, with no sings of stopping. You gaze out the passenger window, watching the raindrops race down the window and the insistent pattering of the raindrops on the car roof is driving you insane. You've stopped at some traffic lights; you notice the little rivulets forming at the side of the road. The bright lights on the high street just seem a blur, everything does. Your senses feel numb, you are aware that the window is open, and that you should feel cold, and that the stereo is blaring out music, and you should hear it, yet you can't, you cannot feel a thing. ...read more.


The window screen wipers working furiously to remove the raindrops, yet they just keep coming. The beaming headlights of passing cars merge together, and it's all just one huge vivid mass of light.

You can hear people talking, but you cannot make out what they are saying, and an unrelenting beeping fills your head. Your back, and this time you will make the most of it... you were given a second chance. However your friends didn't, and you hope that they were the ones meant to be in the car, and that the song you choose, their last song, was one they had wanted to hear...
