My Instincts Said Don’t Go

It was a beautiful late July afternoon, such a beautiful day, you wouldn’t want to sit at home. I have gone for a walk a couple blocks to a neighborhood corner store. This store sold soda, cigarettes, lottery tickets. I bought a soda and walked outside to go home. A car stopped and a young man said, “Hello.”. He continued to tell me he was going to a music school and that he was from out of town. I replied and noticed a very handsome blonde haired man sitting in the back seat. They were very happy, smiling on such a lovely day. The driver asked if I wanted to go for a ride. Of course, you do not go for a ride with a stranger. I thought I had met the man in the back seat before. I said, “No.” He said, “Maybe I can call you later and we can go out.”. I replied, “Sure, maybe.”. I gave him my phone number. He said, “I will give you a call tonight.”. When I got home, I wondered if he was going to give me a call. He didn’t. I learned the next day of a horrible accident at the bend of the road not to far. It was the young men I spoke to that afternoon in the accident and a female. The driver and the female died in the accident.

I am glad I turned down their offer for a ride on that sunny afternoon in July.
