178. The car hurls over the edge

The car hurls over the edge and plummets onto the rocks. The airbag inflates but it hardly cushions the blow. Glass fragments whirl all around you, drawing blood, as the cold metal bends round your legs, piercing flesh and crushing bone. Fortunately the adrenaline washes away the pain. Momentarily at least.



Read the rest of the tale and 100 more stories in 300 words or less in YOU’RE GETTING SLEEPY, THE HYPNOTIST’S APPRENTICE YAWNED.

Available at the Createspace Store, at amazon.com, amazon.co.uk or any other Amazon store in your territory.  E-book is also available.

    Nice twist and segue into a further morality story. Know you’re only
    doing 300 words, but I could see this expanded further.
