I remember lying there, dead, with blood oozing from the gash stretched across my forehead. The steam from the truck rose into the tree that split the truck in two. I sat there lifeless, trying not to blink, smile or show the rising of my chest with every breath I took. I wanted the onlookers to realize what they were seeing, I wanted the message to sink in and I knew that if I sat their lifeless...

So here’s how I ended my paper. And with that, all of our rockets explode into a blinding flash of twinkling grace covering every onlooker as the glimmering explosion blankets the earth.
