An Unfortunate Chain of Events Pt. V (Final Episode)

20 Nov

Jim was driving very fast and was quite drunk. When he came up to stop signs, in his head he was still moving forward because he was getting the spins. He had no idea where he was going. He had flashes of ideas. The principle idea that was winning out was to get another bottle of something. Anything. So he made up his mind to go to the liquor store across town because although he was drunk, he still knew a bargain and the prices there were always better.

Jim felt like hearing some music while he made his pilgrimage to get more intoxicants. He reached under the seat for the CD case but did not feel it. “It must have slid to the back” he thought to himself. He turned around to look and saw the CD case sitting on the floor. He grabbed it with a grunt. That would be the last sound the world would hear from Jim. When he turned back around he saw a tractor trailer barreling down on the driver side of his car. While fumbling with the CD case he didn`t realize that he ran a red light right into a busy intersection. He was killed instantly.

Back home, Francince had finally calmed down after about an hour from when Jim sped off. She had called her family to let them know the news and what had happened between her and Jim. The consensus was to leave him, not even recognize his paternal status and delete him from her and the new baby`s life.

Jim would have gotten his way. If only it weren`t for an unfortunate chain of events.

    Sad ending, really felt like being there with Jim and Francine. Very vivid writing.

      I am not very satisfied with the ending. I feel it was too abrupt. I will be honest, I just wanted to end the story all ready. Thanks for reading and I am glad you enjoyed it!

        It was a little too abrut. I feel like this story could have been dragged out some more. The first four episodes we’re great. The ending was ok, but you could have continued this story. Anyway, good writing.

        I TOTALLY agree with you. It was laziness on my part. I really wanted to end the story. It could have gone on and on but I really did not want to continue with it. Thank you very much for reading and I am glad you liked it (the rest of it anyway) 🙂
