Hah! Driving me crazy, I think, is a pretty short trip. People say I’m half-way there to begin with. I can’t disagree. I’ve always been a little… off. But at least I have skills. I was counting on those skills to satisfy my craving.
I saw my chance soon enough. Something glinted up ahead on the right. I down-shifted, sped up, jumped the curb, and caught the pedestrian at the edge of the sidewalk. His eyes filled with fear and disbelief as he bounced off the windshield. I love it when I can see their eyes.
