Angel Avery

William (Billy) Avery mailman extraordinaire for ten years 
His beautiful loving wife, Irene, Loved beyond this World
I remember the day Billy was skipping down the sidewalks
Hey Billy ,what’s up You seem exuberantly Happy today
After ten years Irene is no longer barren, I’m going to be a father
It’s a Girl ,a gift from heaven , a Princess, a heavenly Angel
This is my daughter, my existence, my future Angel Maria Avery
The whole town watched the proudest Papa carrying his Angel 
Door to door ; Here’s your mail this is my daughter Angel Maria
The years went on : Angel an Angel  growing in Daddy’s heart
Sweet sixteen, Learner’s Permit in hand “Daddy can I drive?”
How could he say no ; To the Supermarket and right back home
Check your mirrors, adjust your seat , Seatbelt; and let’s go slowly
How am I doing Daddy, suddenly a thud, Daddy I hit a dog, panic
She hit’s the gas instead of the brakes: the oak tree didn’t move
Billy woke up ;something warm running in his eyes; ANGEL
She lay there covered in blood, Her cell phone; 981 Damn
My fingers are to big for these tiny numbers 911 Dispatch
What is Your emergency, My daughter and I have been in an accident
Is she conscious, No: Is she breathing :I don’t know I can’t move my legs
The Ambulance is on the way. ANGEL, ANGEL, A N G E L!!
         Inspired by Gareth James Contest "Leave Me Hanging"

    after the contest, if you are going to continue this.maybe not, but that would be interesting to read the ending.a daughter with the name Angel as well, makes it more of a read in's scary how things like this really happen, your description is very clear to see through an image. i like this cliff hanger on your story. good luck, i love you always spirit brother. -Forever your sister spirit, Lynn
