RACE AGAINST TIME
Jerry ran as fast as he could. He gritted his teeth, he had not run this fast since school, when the school bully was chasing him down for his lunch money that he never had. Checking his watch, he swore! He was not going to make it. Time was against him, time was always against him.
Cars were end to end, the roads were full of people milling around. In a moment of clarity, he ran up the bonnet of a car and along the roof. He jumped from car to car. The drivers were shouting abuse at him, but he did not care. He was running out of time. Jerry jumped down from the last car and ran across the road thankful that no traffic was moving.
He grabbed some money from his pocket and threw it to a vendor as he grabbed something from the stall as he ran past without breaking his stride. He had one more road to cross and the cars just lined the streets, he could not believe his luck. He jumped on the bonnet of one sliding across and then he was on the pavement.
Jerry thought he might actually make it! He checked his watch again; he had fifteen seconds. He was going to make it. As he reached his destination, the door opened.
“My love, ten years ago today I proposed to you at this exact time in this exact place. I loved you then and I will love you forever”. Jerry gave her the flowers he brought from the vendor.
