I parked the bike on the side of the road, took Maggie's hand as we crossed the abandoned street, and we stood there under the crosswalk sign.
The place that started it all.
She pulled the hoodie of my jacket up that she was wearing and towed me by my arm down to sit on the sidewalk with her, our feet and legs touching as they outstretched into the street. She took my iPod out and gave me one of the buds, put her head on her shoulder, and played Right Before My Eyes by Cage The Elephant as she tapped her foot. The song I was listening to when she saved my life.
We leaned our heads together and listened as he crooned his words to a nameless girl. Right before my eyes I saw the whole world lose control.
God, I was so thankful that I wasn't paying attention that day.
