TITLE: Egregious Acts of Innocence
GENRE: Light Horror
Minnie and I were in a car accident last week.
It wasn't really my fault--if the driver in that pick-up had been a lot more attentive none of this would have happened. Sure, I shouldn't have been driving so fast and playing the radio so loudly. I shouldn't have been driving her car in the first place, since I wasn't on the insurance. I shouldn't have coasted through that stop sign I knew was there, even though it was slightly hidden by a tree branch. But he's the one who permanently embedded the image of my best friend's bleeding and unconscious head in my sleeping and waking mind, while his truck sat on top of us blocking out the sun.
Ok, so it was all my fault. Because I caused the accident on purpose. I feel guilty about dragging Minnie into this vendetta against myself, but I saw the opportunity and took it. Well, quoth the raven, "nevermore." I will never put my friends in danger ever again just for the sake of my selfish desire.
I sit in my bed, now, watching the rainfall where the sunrise should be, like I've been doing since five o'clock this morning, and hope to God I'll finally die today. My alarm radio plays Keane as the digital numbers switch to seven-zero-zero.
I roll out of bed and head to the bathroom before my brother has time to hog it.
