SIX SECONDS TO IMPACT: THE MOMENT I FELL IN LOVE.
I'm in the air. That was the exact moment I realised it. I don't know the real reason that thought finalised a conclusion in my mind at that particular moment.
Maybe it was the thought of the impending death coming or the fact that I may not get to chat with her that evening. All I was certain about is that the numbers sparked the thought to life.
Written in black, permanent marker ink on my bicycle handlebars the numbers 25678504968, funny enough I saw them as the impact of the crash sent me sailing over them. It was awesome! The feeling was awesome! Here I am, sailing to my death and all I could think of was calling a girl I'd never met. Calling her to say "Chocolate, I love you. Will you marry me?"
My eyes look up and see the almond tree that's to break my neck. At that instant a message comes in on my phone and I'm wondering if it's her that just sent a message through whatsapp.
Next thing I hear is a deafening thud and a loud crack sound, then silence, then darkness.
Every morning I wake my left shoulder aches, it never healed so the moment is never forgotten. You might think I'm crazy but I'd like to relive those six seconds again. And again...
