One second changes everything.
Bright lights pierce the pitch black road, and the sounds of screeching tires and crunching metal echo in my ears. I’m in a car with everyone that I love—my best friends; my boyfriend; and Jake, who has been like a brother to me since we were five, though I’ve always secretly loved him. But none of that registers. How much I could lose doesn’t even cross my mind. Instead, time slows, stops even, and somehow, I know life will never be the same.
