Note: This is the short story sequel of my top post Seasons. Please do read the first part, first. 🙂
Chilling shivers crawled in my veins when I saw my bloody self inside the wrecked car.
“So what am I now? Am I a soul now? Am I dead? Am I alive?”
I shouted but no voice left me.
The ambulance arrives. Several medical staffs try to retrieve my blood-soaked body.
This is nauseating but I urged myself to think.
I collected myself and prepared to run to get inside the ambulance.
But I stopped.
…as I felt a warm yet slightly cold hand touched my arms.
I am unsure if my heart is still alive but it surely beats fast when my skin recognized this hand.
This hand belongs to the man I was supposed to marry five years ago.
This hand belongs to the man I cried and yelled at when he was not able to see me on that fateful day of October.
I waited on our corner… but he did not come, because… he died.
But this hand… is definitely….
“No, no, no, no.”
“This is couldn’t be. This couldn’t be.”
But my senses say otherwise.
This is how his touch feels like.
And this is how he makes me feel.
I slowly turned around.
I cannot look up.
But I did.
My heart stopped.
