Things I should have watched out for:
The redhead with her face buried in her phone.
The pixie who made me feel more alive than the speeding blue Shelby underneath me.
The girl more intense than the music and crowds I surround myself with.
The cure to all the demons from my past.
The one with the boyfriend who loves her.
But I didn’t, and now she has to watch me one more time. In a race for my life, and hers.
Things I should have seen coming:
The stupid red balloon.
The road all my wishes led me down.
The 6ft hulk with the easy smile.
The maniac who rages both on the track and off it.
The one who doesn’t care that I have a boyfriend who loves me.
But I didn’t, and now I have to watch him one more time. In a race for his life, and mine.
