Here’s my story…

Hearing the sing-song tune echoing between the houses I ran. Phil was faster. He had perfect legs. I don’t know which was louder, the ice cream truck’s music or the squeak of the steel braces. Phil was across the street in a flash. I jerked along, slapping my correctional shoes off the curb to the pavement.

Phil screamed at me.

I looked up, the slow moving vehicle triangle flying towards me at break-neck speed…

The braces saved my legs, wedging between the wheel and my legs. Too bad I didn’t have a brace for my skull.

  1. I’m thinking the ‘skull’ referance is more to hurt pride, embarassment of not paying attention.
    I like your approach. Braces can be replaced. I hope she got some ice cream! 🙂

    • I remember trying to run on braces. I also remember falling off a few curbs in the process. I used to chase my dearly beloved Phil to ice cream truck, too…. combining memories and throwing in a little drama makes for great fiction!
