Riding down the road minding my own business and this guy in a grey truck is like right behind me.
Mind you I am a beginner skater so, I tried to jump off to get out the road, so I wouldn’t die.
So I get unsquared and I jump off on the fastest part of the hillish type thing.
I fall directly on my face, I remember the sound of my head bouncing off the pavement. I don’t think I will ever forget that sound. I get up and my friend is laughing a lot, he say the whole thing..
His laughter stopped once he say my face. The left side of my face was covered in blood, I mean covered. I busted open my eyebrow, made my nose bleed, mess up my shoulder and have a hole in my lip.
I’ve wanted my lip pierced for as long as I could remember, so my brother convinced my mom to let me have it done if I did all by myself. Well, I did. It hurt really bad, but I wanted it done so I did. And yeahhh… That’s my story.
