I've been in accidents before. I think that it's possible that we all have. I tried to remember what it was like to be in an accident back when I was a teenager. It was scary and interesting all at the same time. What if it was an entire busload of my friends? What if one of them was taken to the hospital? I relived a few moments from my teen years and incorporated those feelings into this excerpt. See if you have ever felt this way and consider reading, "Sounds of Tomorrow" being published soon.
Sounds of Tomorrow
Police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances rolled up to the scene. The road was closed on either side of the accident and only parents or guardians were allowed to enter. The paramedics fanned out and tended to each person from the bus and the truck driver, whose truck was not badly damaged, but still, he was shaken up and worried about whether he would get the ticket. One of the paramedic teams came over to Erin and took care of the few cuts that she had, asked for her name and said they would call her parents. She stood up and felt shaky and unsteady and sat back down again on the soft grass. She felt that reaching the grass voluntarily was preferable to reaching it unconsciously or from loss of balance.
