Almost a Hit
| I climbed out of Mom's car and waved as she left. I hobbled along the street, using the crutches to support me. I was slow, but that did not bother me.
"Watch out!" someone yelled, just as I heard a car coming towards me.
I tried to move fast, but was prevented by the crutches.
The car barely bumped me, but it still made me fall.
Arms circled arround me, catching me before I hit the ground. The person lifted me up on to the curb and set me down gently.
"Sarah." Edward's frantic voice said. "Are you all right? Are you hurt?"
"No." I said, shaking my head. "I... I think I'm fine. Just... a little shaken."
"That's understandable." Edward said.
I heard a car door open and footsteps coming towards us.
"I am so sorry." a man's voice said. "Is she ok? I didn't mean to hit her, I swear."
"It's all right." Edward said, laying his odly cool hand on my shoulder. "She's fine. She barely got hit."
I heard the driver sigh in relief. I heard him step closer for a second. He patted my shoulder gently.
"Sorry kiddo." he said, walking back to his car.
I couldn't help but smile.
"You had him worried." Edward said to me. "He thought he killed you."
"How do you know that?" I said.
Edward chuckled softly before saying, "Magic."
