An idea just came to me, and I had to get it down

It might not make much sense, but it can be worked on. You know how it is, the words come from nowhere, the story writes itself in your head at the awkwardest of moments, then if a free moment as soon as possible…

Write:

I remembered a bang.

I remembered the car slewing sideways.

I remember another bang, and then it was lights out.

When I opened my eyes again, I saw the sky.

Or I could be under water.

Everything was blurred.

I tried to focus but I couldn’t.  My eyes were full of water.

What happened?

Why was I lying down?

Where was I?

I cast my mind back, trying to remember.

It was a blank.

What, when, who, why and where, questions I should easily be able to answer.  Questions any normal person could answer.

I tried to move.  Bad, bad mistake.

I did not realise the scream I heard was my own.  Just before my body shut down.
