Miracle in Disguise
There were signs but I ignored it. How could I be so blinded? How could my judgement be so blurred? How could I be so careless?
I screamed, "SHIT!" when he almost didn't manage to break and it would have hit the Gen 2 in front of us.
I screamed again, " WHAT THE FUCK! Bastard! Idiot! Shit!" when a Saga cut into our lane without signal right after a corner. That idiot fool.
Then with me saying, "Turn right!" *Bang*
Ken was on the wheel, I should have known better to know let him drive on unfamiliar road. I should have also told him way ahead where to turn and which lane to be on. Its because of me that the accident happen. We could have died. We could have killed or injured other innocent people as well who was there at the wrong time and who didn't manage to dodge us or my car would flipped and crash on to a motorcyclist or another car.
With me saying he should have turned right instead he panic and swirl the car to the right. With the rest of the car safely made the sudden turn my car left front wheel didn't. It hit the sharp high divider so hard we were on the divider for a few meters till the tyre burst and the rim couldn't handle the car weight it broke into pieces. I told him then to try to move the car forward and see if I was correct about the tyre being a total goner. Indeed, I was right. I was bad. I never seen anything like that before.
During the whole incident where at the moment when it crash the divider and went on it, in my head was only, "SHIT! Oh my GOD! The car is gonna flip!". I didn't see my life flash before my eyes. I didn't see the chances I gave up on or the risk I dare not take. I didn't see the bad I've done or the mistake I have made. I didn't see my love ones flash before my eyes either.
Things could have been so much worst if my thought came true and the car flipped. Ken would have been seriously injured or worst. I dare not think any more of what might happen if if it did. His life would have been on my hand and I would be scarred for life knowing if anything had happen to my lil brother life. He has so much potential and big dreams. I can't bare to think if I was responsible his all. If other people was involved even more I would blame myself and my hand would be forever stained and I would forever be hunted by this.
Maybe to some of you it is as bad as how me and Ken write it off as. But if you were at the midst of it all and were the one who was in the car then you would know. Don't even text or be on the phone while you drive. You might think your good with the car and have good skills and your in control. Don't think you drive a manual car or a sport car or a tough heavy car or any car for the fact that you can speed your way to another destination. Don't think about getting there in the shortest time or that your late so you have to speed. Specially do not ever speed while its pouring rain.
Don't tempt fate. Don't try your luck. Don't test your skills. Is it worthy it? Imagine if anything would have happen to you, how would your family and friends take it? My dad was worried sick about me and Ken. He was so worried that the cops would come and find trouble. He was worried that we were hurt. Our parents brought us to this world with so much love and care and we can leave the world in a road accident. Its just a bad way to leave. Keith, I hope your reading this cause I'm very worried about how you drive. And to all of you as well.
I don't wanna write much. Ken has the other parts covered in his blog. Its indeed a miracle in disguise with me and this car of mine. A white classic 240 SE Volvo.
