In less than 100 words…

The loud screech of the tires pierced my ears, and jolted me.  I remember the sound of the gravel kicking up, and hitting guests in the parking lot. I had gotten yelled at by my boss for my boyfriend’s departure.

Another time I didn’t want to leave a party and he peeled out and left me without a ride home.

My parents would not allow him to see me that summer. I realized:  he was going to die young.

Years later the sound reminded me that he left me here all alone. That was selfish of him.
