“Sometimes you don’t realise the mess you’ve made until you hit rock bottom. My life is a car crash, and the only person I can blame is myself. I was the reason that my parents broke up, and I ruined my own chances of happiness. I’m not proud of what I’ve done, and worst of all I hate the person I’ve become. My name is Jude Reed, and when I arrived, I was helpless and alone.
Then I met Tiffany and everything changed.”
An extract from Chapter 1
“Somebody is literally pounding at my chest, but I’m numb. At least I think I am, because I can only see. Shit, the scene is messier than I imagined. The car is still smoking and no-one is putting it out, all their attention is focused on me. Do they want me to make it? I don’t. People’s voices are muffled and my eyes avert to the spider-webbed windscreen and the large tree branch which penetrates through my car. Smoke plumes billow from the bonnet. How did they get me out? Did they drag me from the driver’s seat before the vehicle burst into flames? If they did, I could be paralysed and wheelchair bound. Perhaps that’s why I’m numb? Oh God, my face is fuc- I’m unrecognisable. Don’t bring me back, please. Stop! Where am I? I stare at my feet, which are firmly planted on the tarmac pavement and glance over my shoulder.
My body is still there, but-but I’m over here. I must have succeeded.
Thank God! I suppose that I never did do anything by halves. I walk over to my body to assess the damage. It’s bad. From what I can see, my left shoulder-blade is dislocated and looks like it’s about to penetrate my skin. My neck is broken; it must have been the sheer force of the crash. These paramedics are going all out to save me but they needn’t bother. I died two minutes ago. Perhaps I’m not dead? It could be an out-of-body experience, but I don’t want it to be.”
