FFfAW – Special Date

On his way to his girlfriend's house, a car ran the red light and plowed right into Darren's door, injuring him badly. He and his girlfriend's date was immediately cancelled.

Life flight air lifted him to the emergency room to the closest hospital, LifeCare. Darren was immediately sent into surgery to repair his broken limbs and to stop the massive internal bleeding.

Darren was fortunate to live through this bad wreck. It easily could have been so much worse.

Three months later, Darren and Colesta went to a nice dinner and an exciting movie, happily finishing their fateful date.

  1. Great story PJ. Action packed. You don’t expect Darren to get so injured and thank goodness he lives through his injuries. Happy they got a ‘redo’ on their date night. Although I’m sure, Darren was still not quite up to his old self. Hope the end of your summer went well? Did you get to go and visit your kids/grand kids like you’d planned?

  2. so fortunate that everything fell into place, the airlift and surgical team on the ready….i love the happy ending…so romantic that they still got o finish the date1

  3. I don’t like the suffering…..but I love the happy ending! It’s very much like much of what we go through in life isn’t it? Not always easy, but so often so joyful in the end. Well done Priceless!

  4. Wow that was quite a story you pulled from that prompt! I’m so glad that Darren survived and that he and Colesta were able to finish their date!! πŸ™‚
