Laughing in the face of… it’s hard to accept honestly…
Desires – Travelling
By Fzzy and Tera S
I cannot hear what the rider said at first my eyes still locked onto the machine they had rode. It is a piece of art that almost draws me to touch it. As I go to step towards it,I almost stumble over Ice’s handlebars, which brings me back to reality.
Enough to finally notice the rider. What a rider! She and I do mean she! What a woman! If My wife was still alive and with me I would be picking my ass off of the ground,after she hit me. But she is not with me anymore.
That is when I realize she had spoken to me.
“I went ass over tea kettle into a tree. That deer decided to cross the road outside the crossing area. Plus he is not wearing a reflective vest. There was just no time to react. Do you have a cell phone? I want to get a Brothers (R) recovery vehicle here. Then maybe get to the hospital myself. If not care for a bite to eat? I have plenty of deer meat!”
I laugh for a whole second until my side stabs me with pain….lots of pain.I see stars, not the pretty ones either. It takes me to my knees.
One of the things that is the most awful is realizing that you can’t fix… everything.
