The Car Accident - by Peter B

About 2 years back, in the midst of summer, a friend and I were walking to his house from mine. During our walk, we noticed 2 ambulances and a fire truck pass by with lights and sirens on. A runner from the opposite way advised us that there was a crash ahead, and that we should take a different route. We thought nothing of the crash and went on our way. About 2 minutes later, we noticed a woman walking in the opposite direction, she did not look very well. She had ripped clothing, so we suggested that she was homeless. This woman walked by us and we smiled politely and said hello, we received no response. Shortly after, we noticed the woman walking towards us again, this is when we realized something was wrong. She smiled at us and showed us her cellular phone as we walked by, it was smashed. At this point we were freaked out, we walked faster and faster until something extraordinary happened. We saw her walking towards us again. Now, we realized that she must have been part of the car accident, but this time, she had solid white hair and her clothes were in better shape than before. She smiled and asked us a question which I will never forget to the day I die. "Do you boys happen to have a cellphone?". We ran. We sprinted by the woman and did not look back. Since that day, we have never talked about what happened, and I told one person, my brother. He looked at me and told me that it didn't happen. I know for a fact that it did happen. Was it an angel that visited us that day? I may never be sure of what happened, but I like to believe that she was an angel. Thank you for listening to my story.
