Short Story Day 104 of 365
Tracy just finished her SATs and decided to celebrate with a little lunch with two friends. After the girls placed their order at the drive thru window, Tracy pulled up, and took out her phone.
Let’s see, Mom, Dad, baby sis Janie, brothers James and Jeff and Tim just have to find out.
One by one, she texted them the good news that she was finished and felt good about the exam.
She had two more messages left when Denise in the passenger seat yelled, “Trace!”
The scream startled Tracy and for a split second she lifted her foot from the brake. Without realizing it, she had been drifting forward inch by inch for two minutes until her father’s BMW bumper crunched the Lexus bumper in front of her.
Tracy froze and her eyes darted side to side.
Maybe nobody even noticed.
Nobody except for the Lexus driver opening his car door.
