Day Thirty-Seven of 41 Days of Metallicar ...

I really meant to write a light-hearted one today. I did, truly. The muse, however, had other ideas, so here is my contribution to day 37 of the 41 Days of Metallicar countdown ...


********************************
Lucky Charms

Third time's the charm.

People used the phrase to invoke luck. It was just another measure of how screwed up his life was that he thought it about his death. Electrocuted, but restored by a Reaper. Demon-tortured and smashed by a truck, but restored by a demon. Both times, his life exchanged for someone else’s; first a stranger, then Dad.

Third time’s the charm.

He couldn’t think about this near Sam. Sam was already scared and guilty; he couldn’t add to it. Instead, he sat alone in the car, hands sweating on the wheel, but resolute.

Third time’s for Sam.
