Todd watches as his car slowly rolls away. Todd stands motionless, stunned by his unluckiness, begins to sprint towards the car.
“Not today!” He screams. “Not today! I will not be undone!” As he reaches his stride, Todd reminisces about his high school track days, how great he was. That’s when he first caught the attention of his high school sweetheart, Shelby.
“Oh, Shelby,” he remembers. He remembers their long talks on the phone, their fervent fascination with Pokemon cards, the time he caught her cheating with his best friend, Alex. Oh yeah! She cheated on him! With that bastard, Alex! “Best friend, my ass!” He shouts.
This passionate distraction stops Todd from seeing that his car has slowly stopped at the bottom of the hill, but becomes ever pleasantly clear as Todd sends himself through the rear window unable to stop because of his momentum.
“Wake up,” Todd says to himself. “Wake up, I need to get this girl to her destination.” His vision blurry, Todd can make out the girl, she seems to be saying something. He tries to pick himself up from the floor of his car but it is too weak.
Her voice, it seems to Todd, is soft like an angel’s. She’s definitely trying to tell him something, maybe something comforting. It has to be, he thinks, as he tries to get closer to her. He sees that she’s reaching out to him, trying to help him. He smiles, an angel trying to help me, he thinks.
She sprays something on him, “what mystical healing spray is this?” He smiles, as it begins to burn. Oh god, it’s pepper spray! He comes to immediately, seeing that she’s been screaming this entire time.
He screams as well, trying to say something. “Please, calm down, I’m sorry!” Is what he wanted to say, but what did come out was just a fountain of blood from his mouth.
Terrified, the girl gives him a swift kick and runs out of his car. Todd, manages to sit himself upright. Crying, bloodied, and bruised Todd gathers himself. A rumble from his pocket diverts his attention to his pocket.
He pulls out his cell phone. A notification from Lyft, “Ride cancelled.” He smirks as he begins to laugh to himself. He exits out of the app and brings up Postmates.
