I grasp my phone tightly in my hand. I can’t remember what I am supposed to be doing. I came to a fork in the road. I don’t know which way to go. I look left and right. I calculate in my head what would happen if I turn left. That is a thing I can do. See the future depending on the decisions I make.

In my mind’s eye I see a man walking up the road to my left. To my right I see myself getting hit by a car. I look back to the left road. In my mind’s eye I see the man attacking me.

He starts to run. I don’t know what to do. I can see him clearly now. I don’t what to do.  I find my self running towards him. My fist clenches. My hand swings with full impact hitting his nose. I can hear the crunching of the bone breaking. My head hurts as I stumble back and fall on to the ground. I can see blood pouring out of his nose. He isn’t moving. I couldn’t have! NO!
