Man in car "Where do you need to go?" Ella stares, wide-eyed. Speechless. Shocked of what was before her eyes. Man, reeked of what smelt of alcohol. Black car, all windows tinted and looked as if stolen items in the back seat. Man in car "GET IN HURRY, THEIR COMING." Ella breathing heavier scared of the suspicious man. She has a shiver run up her spine. Her instinct clicks in, and knows something is not right. Ella "Wh-who is coming?" Man in car "THE COPS! They've been chasing me, I almost lost 'em but they found me again!" He screamed back. The man pressed his foot hard, on the gas pedal and has a bottle in his hand. Ella shuts her eyes tight. Hoping this is just a nightmare. She opens them. Going faster now, he screams vulgar words. Ella "PLEASE STOP! Slow down! LET ME OUT." She screams. Man "Too late to stop now, we ALMOST lost them." He slurred his words. The car drifted into the other lane. Up ahead was on-coming traffic. Ella "WATCH OUT!" A semi-truck coming towards them. Looked as if it was full of cement. The head lights brightened. The police siren blared behind them. The truck driver anxiously honking. The collision was loud and fast. Her eyes closed shut. Hatred struck her.
