Heat #19

by

I think I screamed as the side of a bus, all metal and earsplitting horn, filled my vision for a second. Then it had gone and I fell into the barrier on the central reservation. I wasn't sure how, but somehow I'd made it across.
Archie, sitting on the barrier, scolded.
"That was the stupidest time you chose to run across."
I didn't answer him. I really couldn't remember anything and really didn't want to know.
Archie gestured behind him. "Now for the Southbound lanes," he grinned.
"Jesus, Arch, you're enjoying this aren't you?"
He just laughed. "Maybe," he said.

    Very true. This bit is actually based on my childhood - but the six lane motorway was only three lanes in reality. Still, "chicken" and "blind chicken" were not the healthiest games to play!
