She woke with a start! What was that sound? Did someone break into their house? Why didn’t her husband wake? How could he sleep through a sound like that?! Breathing heavily, heart pounding, she gently touches him and feels his breathing, slow, steady. Good. Still alive. But what was that noise? She forces herself to listen but hears nothing. Slowly it dawns on her. It was her dream. The one that keeps returning ever since that fateful day a year and a half ago. The day that changed her life forever.
She and Beth had been driving down Main Street on their way to a downtown concert. They were going to meet Faith there. There they were laughing at each other’s stories, told about the day they’d had. She kept her eyes on the road – glancing at Beth every so often as they shared their stories. Looking ahead she saw her light was green, glancing around the intersection confirmed opposing traffic had stopped so she continued on their route. But, suddenly, CRASH!! Out of nowhere, the witnesses had said. The truck was flying down Anderson Way ran the light and t-boned Alicia’s car. Air bags went off, glass shattered, metal bent in ways it just shouldn’t. Pain. That’s all she remembered. Excruciating pain. Somehow, Beth was saved from serious injury – scratches and a sprain – easy to recover from. But Alicia? Her life was never going to be the same.
