Chapter 1.

*earlier that day*

"MUM! WHERE ARE MY EARBUDS?!" I shouted to my mum.

"I DONT KNOW MADDY, COME ON WE HAVE TO GO... your dad and I will be waiting in the car...!" She yelled back.

I quickly rumaged through my room until I came across my backpack. I opened it up to the smell of my sweet lavender perfume. The long white cord was sitting on top of all my school stuff, in multiple knots. My hand reached down eagerly to grab the earbuds. As I shoved the earbuds in my pocket I started to run down the stairs, taking them 2 at a time. As I got downstairs I looked myself over in the mirror before heading out the front door and locking it behind myself.

As I got in the car my parents gave me a death glare, obviously pissed off at me for making them wait, oh my gosh only 5 minutes later then they wanted to leave. My dad pulled away from the driveway, and both my mum and dad started giving me the 'even though you don't care we do' speech. I instantly pulled out my earbuds, un-tying them from the knots they were in. I went to the music app on my white, apple iPhone, I scrolled through the bands on my phone before I settled on Mayday Parade and played the song Jersey.

It was 9pm, so it was pretty much black outside other then the illumination of the cars headlights and the occasional street light. I turned my head so I was looking out of the front window. Two lights lights were swaying back and forth as they got bigger. I realized they were car headlights. We were driving on a twisty road, but this driver was really driving all over the place. It finally clued in, drunk driver.

I took out my earbuds as I paused 'what a catch, donnie' by fall out boy, on my phone. I interrupted my parents oh so interesting conversation about the Toronto Maple Leafs,

"hey Dad... Im pretty sure the driver coming up to us is drunk. He's swerving all over the road." I told my dad as I saw him look over to the driver.

"Yeah, your right. Can you dial the police and put it on speaker for your mum or I to talk please?"

"Uh, yeah sure hold on." I replied, I quickly dialled 9-1-1 and put the call on speaker phone. I listened to the quietness of the ring. All of a sudden I heard a screech of brakes followed by a crunch. Then everything faded to nothingness.

I screamed as I was being shook awake by someone I presumed was my mum. I kept my eyes closed because I was trying really hard to keep in the waterfall of tears. I kept thinking to myself 'its okay it was only a dream.'
