My fiance and I were driving home from a visit with her parents. I remember that we were playfully arguing about the colors we'd have at the wedding, and which annoying relatives we'd put together at tables at our reception. I had to slam on the brakes when the car in front of me came to a stop in the middle of the highway.
It was an unexpected traffic jam, and the semi behind me hadn't seen my brake lights. I remember hearing her scream, then an unbearable crunching sound. I opened my eyes to flashing lights and panicked people all around me. I reached for her and saw only her saturated hair, now red.
Someone pulled me out and away against my will, leaving her there in the mass that used to be my car.
