The Auction

Extracts from this document...


The Auction "Which one's the indicator?" this question kept rolling around in my mind. It had gone blank! "Erm, this one!" I tried the leaver on the right had side. I could hear the reassuring ticking; I knew I'd done the right thing. I turned right down a cul-de-sac. "If you'd just like to pull over here." My tester said. Had I done it? Had I passed my driving test first time? If I had I was lucky! I didn't know where the indicator was. I had guessed and just in time. In my own mind I'd known, my mind had just gone blank.

The car ran smoothly and I felt complete. It was what I had dreamed off. I turned on the radio. The stereo was nothing flash just basically a radio with a standard tape player. I drove past the bus stop feeling even more pleased with myself. I couldn't wait to show Mum and Dad what I'd got for their money. Just then another car came careering around the corner. I turned to avoid it and rolled onto the roof the car then skidded 50 meters down the road on the roof and hit a tree. I felt pain everywhere I looked myself over there was blood everywhere!
