Ramming speed

road work sign on bridge

I took the first shift because I thought he’d wanna sleep. I’d gone to bed early so I’d be rested before we left. He never came to bed, instead he stayed up repacking the car like Tetris.

Maybe he was wired from sleep deprivation, but Gawd, he would not stop talking. Kept rambling about people I didn’t know. It was crazy talk most of the time.

Once in morning rush traffic, it took all within me to not ram into a concrete barrier just to shut him up. Something quick and lethal, but, there’d be no cure for my misery.

This week’s challenge is inspired by “Crash,” by the Primitives
This week’s Studio30 Plus prompt is “quick and lethal,” from Lightning Flash

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.
