"Dad, are we there yet?" Dylan groaned, keeping his book down.
My name is Eddy Brown. I was born and brought up in Texas. I work as an accountant in some of the big companies. I met my wife, Linda six years ago and we got married in the same year. I have two kids, Dylan who is five and Rhodes, who is three. Both of them were bright boys, and I loved them too much.
I smiled as I looked towards Linda, who smiled back and turned towards Dylan.
"Just an hour away sweetie." Dylan groaned once more.
I looked at Linda and blushed. Goddammit, I am married to her and I still fucking blush whenever I see her. Linda noticed my stare and winked. I blushed even more.
From the mirror I could see that Dylan was intently watching us. He grinned slightly and went back to his book. I again wondered if he was five years old or fucking eighteen.
At the moment, we were on a camping trip and were climbing a hill with the car. It was a pretty famous spot atop the hill for camping, and me and my wife decided to go there. We had left Rhodes with a babysitter as he was too small.
The entire road was isolated and streetlights lit up the entire road.
I put on a CD which contained all my favorite songs and all of them were fucking amazing to hear.
The first song played in and my Linda recognized the song.
Dear, I fear we're facing a problem
You love me no longer, I know
And maybe there is nothing
That I can do to make you do
I started humming along with the beats, tapping my steering wheel with my fingers. Linda started singing along with the singer, and goddamn was she good.
And then all of a sudden both of us looked at each other and started singing the song. I held her hand and got my voices out.
The night was ethereal. I couldn't be more happier and content in my life.
Mama tells me I shouldn't bother
That I ought to stick to another man
A man that surely deserves me
But I think you do
And, even though I was driving, I kissed her on the mouth languidly. Slowly. She kissed back and we smiled at each other. We completely forgot about Dylan who was just shocked at the events unfolding in front of him.
Linda blushed as she noticed him and looked at me. She widened her eyes. Shock and terror writ on her face. Dylan screamed.
"EDDY!" She screamed. I turned where she was looking . A truck came, roaring towards us.
The car flipped on the road, down the hill. Everything suddenly went into slow motion. I turned towards Linda who was expressionless. I looked at Dylan, who was crying now.
Linda hit her head on the dashboard and Dylan flew forward, hitting the glass. I cried in my mind.
Everything blacked out.
