Have you ever missed an opportunity to, say, cross a road and then you see someone run a red? If you tried to cross when you intended to, you would have been hit by the car that ran the red.
I personally have things like that happen a lot more often than I’d feel comfortable with! However, I can’t say I’m sorry for that. It seems God sends us angels to make us late in order to keep us safe sometimes!
Your prompt is to write a tale about how your character’s being late saved their life.
Maybe they missed a train that later crashed, or they were going to go swimming in a river that was later washed away when a dam burst. Or, maybe they got dumped by their girlfriend or boyfriend and they later found out that said person was a big-time fart nugget.
Whatever you end up writing on, it’s all yours! Enjoy and I’d love to see what y’all come up with! 🙂
