As she wove her way through the crowd kneading her pockets searching for her phone, she felt invisible and the odor of gasoline was strong.

There’d been a car accident and police kept pressing the inner wall of spectators farther away because of serious concerns over a possible explosion.

She slipped passed a distracted fireman, approaching the mangled vehicle feeling she had no alternative but to investigate because she was drawn by a level of curiosity she’d never, ever, felt before.

Steam rose from the car radiator and she could hear the radio still playing… it was her favorite station.

As she placed her hands where the rear passenger side window should have been and leaned in, the emergency crew extricated the trapped driver and furiously raced away from the car, then – “BOOM” – the car burst into flames!

All she remembers, to this day, is being inside an ambulance and the EMT, beside her, smiling and reassuringly patting her arm saying, “Welcome back. You’re safe now. We got you out JUST in time!”.

      1. The others may have needed a few more sentences but THAT’S a great idea for the future!
        I often find a couple ways my flash fiction might go. Next time that happens, I’ll post those endings with the story for everyone’s critique. Thanks, Chris.

  1. VERY cool. Nicely paced: That subtle shift in perspective, warmed into with the missing phone, the growing familiarity, and then confirmation with the lack of memory of the event. Masterful Six!

Tell me something good...
