The road was no longer visible, in its steed were metal mechanics that constantly spurt out carbon emissions, polluting the air. I glanced frantically at my watch. It was half past eight. 'If I do not get to my office within the next half-hour...' I shivered, remembering the look on my boss’s face the last time I was late. Desperately, my eyes scanned the roads for gaps, big or small, where I could cut in. ‘There!’ My damp hands gripped the steering wheel as I stepped on the accelerator. At that moment, traffic started moving. Seizing the opportunity, I turned the wheel, directing the car into the gap. Though traffic was slow, at least vehicles were on the move again. To me, this was the perfect opportunity. Those sleepy drivers who did not notice the change provided me with the gaps I needed to speed up my progress. For the next ten minutes I weaved in and out of lanes as fast as the situation allowed. As I did so, I noticed other cars mimicking my movements. They were not my concern, the only one I have was to get to work on time. As I weaved my car into another lane, a red Mercedes from the lane next to it turned in suddenly, setting itself on collision course with me. I let out a scream as I tried to turn my car back into the original lane. Honks filled the early morning air as cars swerved away my still one. To others, they were a curse. To me, they were a blessing. I could hear, I was alive.
