Imurtals (A Hairy Tyles funfration)
" California!! Knows how to Party!" Kody sang out. Except when he sang it, California came out "Caaafna" and party sounded more like "parry." It didn't matter; in his head he was performing for a sellout concert at the Staples Center, and they loved him. In the rearview mirror the lights of Santa Monica twinkled. The Pacific Wheel on the pier glowed like a neon disk reflecting on the black mirror of the sea. Up ahead, the rocky shores of Malibu lay dark and silent. The music roared and Kody depressed the gas pedal almost involuntarily. He couldn't help himself. Gladstone's and Sunset Boulevard streaked by as the world accelerated into a violent blur.
He took each turn a little faster than the last, pushing the limits of the machine. He felt a surge of adrenaline as the headlights suddenly alluminated the churning Pacific just beyond the rocks. He stomped hard on the brake and yanked the wheel over, pointing the BMW back toward the curve he had nearly missed. He let out an exhillarated breath.This would make such a cool music video, Brad thought. Dangerous and exciting. Up ahead he saw another sharp turn in the road. This time, he would be ready. He pumped the brake, threw the wheel over, and punched the gas pedal hard. The car growled in protest but managed to stay on 4 wheels. Kody let out his best rockstar scream as he half-skidded, half-flew around the turn.
Right into the headlights of an oncoming car.
Kody tried to brake, but he had finally pushed the BMW to far. Antilock brakes grabbing and releasing, he was a missile rocketing to the other vehicle, a pickup, at eighty miles an hour.
Thats when it happened.
It occured so fast Kody didn't even see it. But he certainly felt it.
It hurt like hell.
It was a hand. A hand grabbing him and pulling him out of the car. To the oncoming driver it must have looked like a magic trick. In one instant Kody was there, wide-eyed and terrified in the driver's seat, and in the next,gone.
Suddenly the pungent smell of sea air filled Kody's nose. Salt-spray flicked across his neck. He realized he was standing on the side of the road, watching a fantastic collision occur. His BMW slid across the centerline and collided head-on with the pickup. The bed of the pickupleapt up over the cab and sent thew truck toppiling end-over-end, over the rocks in glittering crumbs. Then the truck hit the water, upside down, with a sickening smack. Kody's BMW ricocheted off the cliff wall and spun across the road, breaking through the retaining wall on the oppisite end and soaring into the air. It entered the water nose first, gracefully, like a diver. The spectacle was all so violent it was almost beautiful. Then, sputtering and steaming, both vehicles began their slow descent under the icy waves.
Kody shivered against the breeze. He was so staggered by what he had just seen that he didn't immediatly notice the figure standing next to him. Turning, he at first saw only a pair of wings shilloueted against the full moon. Six feet in both directions and razor sharp, the broad appendages rose and fell with the heave of a great breath. The figure stepped forward, and Kody recognized his Guardian Angel.
"Oh my God, it's you," Kody said trying his best to sound sober.
The Angel smiled but said nothing.
Kody became aware of something warm and wet dripping down his left arm, forming small, trickling droplets at the end of his fingertips. He lifted his fingers to his mouth and tasted. It was blood.
"I'm bleeding," he said.
The Angel's eyes twinkled in the moonlight. When he spoke his tone was even and smooth. " I had to pull you out the window," he said. " It was the only way."
Kody remebered it now, as if recalling a nightmare. He remembered the white-hot pain of traveling through the glass window, the tiny slivers lodging in his face, and the way the jagged edges had felt as they sliced through the living skin. He shuddered.
" The cut in your arm and shoulder are superficial and will heal," the Angel continued. "But your hip is fractured. It's very common in this type of save. I've taken the liberty of calling an ambulence to take you to the hospital it should arrive momentarily."
Kody took a cautius step forward, then cried out as his right hip erupted in pain. He stepped back and quickly shifted his weight. He blew out a ragged sigh.
The Angel hadn't moved.
"Oh, right," Kody said embarrased. He fumbled for his wallet in his pants pocket. " Sorry, it's my first time, you know," he mumbled as he flipped the wallet open and struggled to pull an American Express Platinum Card from it's sleeve. His fingers were already numb from the cold.
" There's no need," the Angel said, dismissing the effort with a wave of his hand. "The funds have already been transfered out of your account."
"Oh," Kody said. He returned the billfold to his pants pocket. "How much..... was this?"
" One hundred thousand dollars, in addition to your monthly rate. "
Kody's gaze drifted to where the cars had landed in the water. His M5 was already submerged, but the back end of the pickup still protruded from the surf, bobbing in the swellslike a corpse.
"What about him?" Kody asked
The Angel looked at the sinking pickup as if seeing it for the first time.
" He didn't have courage," he said
Kody nodded numbly.
" Good night, Kody," the Angel said, and smiled
" Good------," Kody began to reply, but trailed off as he realized the guardian was alreday gone. Alone now, standing in the cold, Kody began to shake uncontroallably. The realization had only just hit him. The realization that he should be dead.
