The crash

Extracts from this document...


Creative Writing Coursework Dael Evans 2002-10-09 The crash As I woke up all I could see was a blur of bright lights. I kept my eyes closed for a minute and tried again, opening them slowly at first, to get used to the daylight. Where was I? This place isn't familiar: what's that smell? Smells like kitchen cleaner and disinfectant mixed into one. I still didn't recollect where I was, what I was doing here. All I could remember from the past memories was a bang and a sudden jolt, then darkness and nothing more. Could this be of some significance to why I was here, I just don't know. There was a knock at what I thought was the door, so I must be in some sort of room. "Hello Mr. Chapman", said a well-educated voice, "Do you know where you are right now?" "Um, no.

Time seemed to stand still for that moment that I knew I was going to hit the other vehicle, then after that I heard a screech of brakes and then a huge ear-splitting bang followed by the crunching sound of metal on metal Then all I could remember was being in so much pain and hearing hissing sounds coming from the engine and I almost thought for sure that I was going to die, and then blackness. "Oh my God", said my mother, who was yet again breaking into a flood of tears. "I just don't know what to think, you almost died for Christ's sake!" "Don't worry Jane", my dad said, reassuringly. "The main thing is that he's alright." "But what about the person in the other car, he wasn't so lucky, was he!" "No, but all we can do for him now is pray." Words 1,038 ...read more.
