hundred word wednesday – “a moment”

This probably happened at some point, right? Who knows. I think the other guy was looking for a pen he had dropped and gave up when he couldn’t find it. Anywho, enjoy!

He was sure it was a two-way street. He was almost positive he hadn’t seen any signs. And yet there was a car barreling toward him at thirty miles an hour on the wrong side of the road.

The car was closing fast, and he could not see a head above the steering wheel. He slammed the brakes and scrambled to get to the backseat. He looked forward again, and saw a head and torso pop up. Confusion turned to shock on this newly appeared face, and the other car screeched, spun, and deposited itself on a fire hydrant.
