Driving Lesson

“Dead slow, dead slow…”

C, B, A, C B, A, I chanted to myself. My foot edged towards the middle pedal. My eyes were fixed on the roundabout ahead.

“Dead slow, dead slow…!”

I nudged the pedal. This should be enou—

“Go, go, GO!”

My foot shuffled about. The car jerked like a rearing bull and I spun the steering wheel. We lurched towards the road ahead.

What next?

I barely breathed a sigh when a distant cloud of movement caught my eye.

“Dead—”

Slow, I know, I thought. This driving lesson was about to get a lot more lively.

Thank you for reading! This story is based on personal experience – I learnt to drive in India one summer, and animals on the road are not uncommon. I hope you enjoyed reading (and that you caught my livestock pun, haha).

You can find more responses to this prompt here.

Until next time!
