“Honestly, do you not know where we are going? You’re 17, you can’t be going senile,” He laughed, taking his hands of the wheel.

“Be quiet, Chase, and put your hands on that wheel.” I groaned, shoving my hands in my pockets. My brother, was a terrible driver. Sure, he was an attractive fellow, his beautiful blonde hair (much like my own) and muscular figure, but that doesn’t prove he has a brain. A brain that has logic, that is.

“I’m a good driver, don’t worry about me,” He snapped, messing up his hair. “By the way, you need to give me that blue sweater back. You can’t keep it forever.”

“No way, you don’t even wear it. It’s mine now,” I said, twisting the drawstrings with my index. He rolled the window down and spit out the window. I squished up my nose in disgust.

“You’re gross, Chase. No wonder you don’t have a girlfriend,” I snarled.

“If you want to keep that sweater you better be nice to me,” He said, looking at me with an eyebrow raised. I smiled and rolled my eyes. He knew that his stupid eyebrow trick always made me laugh. He swerved around a black Honda and stopped suddenly at blue mustang.

“What are you doing? You almost killed me!” I yelled, whipping my arm at his shoulder. He clasped his arm and swore.

“I won’t kill you, I promise,” He sighed.

“You sure?” I asked, locking the lock on my door.

“I’m sure,” He laughed. I ran my fingers through my hair and sank down in my seat.

“Can you please pull over and let me drive?” I whined, looking at the window, which was covered in raindrops.

“I’ll pass,” he said,  looking down and shaking his head.

“Keep you’r head up!” I cried, putting my hands on the wheel.

“Get your hands off! I’m driving!” He yelled trying to weaken my grip.

“Well you’re not driving well!” I  said. Within seconds we swerved left, and the car flew off the road. I screamed and clasped onto Chase, as his eyes bulged. Objects hit the car and pounded on the roof. The car was now out of control, swerving dramatically. the car hit a few things and the car smashed on its side. I shivered tears filled my eyes

“Ch-Chase? Uh- are you okay?” I shuttered, opening my eyes slightly. I was now squished up against Chase.

“Uh- yeah. Just a l-little cold,” He replied, putting up his head. Glass was shattered all around and the sodas in the cup holders was spilled everywhere.

“Sh-Should we get out,” I asked, tears dripping down my face.

“No. Someone will find us,” He sighed, putting his head back down.

“Chase? what do we do now?” I asked, looking down at my leg, which was now bleeding rapidly.

“Just, try to fall asleep. We will be okay,” he whispered.

“Chase?” I asked.

“What, leave me alone”  he groaned.

“I love you,” I said, more tears falling down my face. He looked up at me and squinted his eyes, tears gushing out.

“I’m sorry,” He whispered. “I’m a terrible brother.”

“You’re not. No way,” I sobbed.  He fell backwards and went completely pale.

“Chase? Chase, are you alright?” I asked.
