Train Wreck

Allison sat on the bench enjoying the view of the city.

She was recalling the events of the previous week when Adam’s car stalled on the railroad tracks, his seat belt stuck, and a train coming.

He yelled for her to get out of the car, but she frantically tried to help him.

Adam pushed her toward the door and told her to run!

She ran, stumbled and hit her head knocking herself out. When she regained consciousness, she saw the car split in half.

Startled, she jumped when Adam touched her on the shoulder holding sandwiches and drinks for their lunch.

“What’s wrong Allison?  he asked.

“Nothing, I was just enjoying the view and feeling very grateful that you were able to get your seatbelt unbuckled in time to run for safety when our car stalled on the railroad tracks last week.

  1. Phew! That’s a relief!! I’m guess from that day on, things around them will be more meaningful since they got a second chance at life. 🙂 Great story, Jessie.


  2. Thank you! Yes, and I think about this even when I am stopped in traffic waiting for a train to pass because if I were near the track and something happened, my being in the close proximity would be very dangerous. I waited for a train to pass just yesterday and it seemed like the railroad cars were traveling at least 90 miles an hour!
