Last month I took part in a Bewitching Blog Tour for Winged Reaper, the second book in my Reaper Series ,and I wrote a post for I Smell Sheep where I discussed my teenage fear that I would die while riding my bike. After it was posted that I realised I’d left out one major death defying occasions when I almost lost my life while on two wheels.
I was riding with a friend, heading for a fun filled day of window shopping and people watching. We were teenagers. We had no money to do real shopping and back then there were no such things as mobile phones to entertain us so people watching was it.
I was in the lead, on the edge of the road to keep out of the way of passing traffic, when a very very very large bag of something fell off the back of a truck and landed right in front of me. As uncoordinated as I am I have no idea how I avoided crashing into it, while my fiend was hyperventilating because of how close it had come to landing on top of me.
