Trifecta Week 70 - Lucky adj.
Grateful for a red light, and first to the intersection to boot, Cassie quickly lowered her visor. A hurried makeup check and a touch of lipstick, something she would never do while driving. As she returned her visor, she saw a car head on only inches in front of her. Disoriented, she tried to assess her situation. From the look of terror on the driver's face, Cassie knew there had been an almost head-on collision while she was obliviously shielded by her visor.
Cassie watched in slow motion as the other car carefully backed into the intersection to redirect towards the correct lane. All traffic had come to a halt in that moment and all eyes seemed to be on her.
Years later, learning of the word synchronicity and the concepts of fate and destiny, she would recall that single moment. Had it been, as she originally thought, just a lucky moment that might have shielded her from seeing possibly the last moment of life, or had it been synchronicity that protected her from certain terror?
