A Harmless Accident

In by Chris on August 28, 2010 at 1:47 pm

Damage done there is none, under two cars carried from afar two humans tarry. Are they wary? Who knows? In Hayward, a station wagon rear-ended. No tears fell, no bumpers bended.

But the girl emerges, charged and perturbed, demands information as the man in the Acura behind runs his hands through his Indian hair and withdraws license and registration.

She nervous, he mirthless as she searches for words. He placates her earnestly with gestures invested with accent. Dents and scratches absent. She sees his wife’s sari and says sorry.

He shrugs and drives away; she hesitantly tries to wave pleasantly.
