girl on the left is physically repelled from him
I made a friend in class, and a few months ago she asked me to drive her home after school, so I decided I would.
Being a new driver I asked her to put her seat buckle on, she looked at me without life in her eyes saying “people wear seat buckles to protect their life, why would I protect something I don’t care to have.”
I reached over and put it on her myself and said “I care to protect your life so that’s what I’ll do.” She smiled and rolled her eyes but tried to hide the fact that what I said made her smile.
She became this person that I’d steal the stars for, someone I probably couldn’t live without and I protected her in the best ways possible.
Months later, she got her license.
I got a call that she was in a terrible crash, my eyes flooded with tears knowing what she said that day a while back, God, she was stupid and never wore her damn seatbelt, I imagined her chest slamming into the wheel, her body flying so much forward than it should have; dying on impact, falling and being crushed into small pieces from the car rolling over.
I got to the hospital, and demanded to see her.
The nurse took me to the room and I saw her, she was alive, and she smiled at me and said with a small hint of life in her eyes “I buckled up for you.”Ashley Craycraft (via fallenbirdfeathers)
damn, intelligence is such a turn on. like wow, people who know a lot about so many different places and so many different things. and they’ve always got something to tell you or show you about something new that they’re interested in, and like, somehow they can blow your mind over and over. damn. such a turn on.
