GENRE: NA SECRET
I spent the night I died at the Tau Kappa end of semester blowout, downing spiked punch and making out with Billy Curtis.
Okay. Not really. But I should’ve at least had the guts to try. Maybe then I’d be waking up an ex-virgin with a hangover, next to the boy I’ve had a crush on since high school. I’d rather have that regret.
That’s what haunts me. Not the last thing I saw—headlights swerving at me head-on.
Not the last thing I heard—crunching glass, screeching tires, and the weakening lub-thud of my heart.
I’d spent my final hours on earth—scratch that, most of my life—studying for stupid tests that would never matter. I’d always been responsible. Done the right things. Safe things.
Yet here I am. Dead.
All the people with near-death experiences got it wrong. There’s no light at the end of the tunnel.
