Respecting Sobriety – Part Five


The dense air made it hard to breathe in Cody’s crowded house and my mind was trapped in a vicious swirl. Outside.That was where I needed to go. I sloppily stumbled my way to the front door and opened it, greeting my lungs with cool air. Walking around, I realized my focus had drifted away but I didn’t really care anymore. I wandered about aimlessly with no real objective. In the distance, I could see a bright green light shimmering in the dark. Curiosity nagged away at me so I decided to get a closer look. As I got closer to the light, I felt a strange sense of familiarity. A green light? I felt like it meant something. I tried hard to remember but it wasn’t coming to mind. Suddenly my thinking was interrupted by a loud screeching noise that was rapidly approaching my direction. I panicked and remained frozen. Not but a second later I could see the gleaming yellow headlights of an SUV rushing towards me.
