…I am dead right now.
We both had the right of way. It must not have occurred to the driver that there might be a pedestrian crossing. When I finally realized he didn’t see me coming, I screamed, and ran. He swerved, but it was too late. I floated above my body, and watched the paramedics desperately try to revive me. I saw the look of horror on the driver’s face. He hadn’t meant to take me out.
