Ms. Rhodes Becoming Pebbles Oh no, my face is going to hit the pavement I thought as I watched the black ashvault racing towards my eyes. This is one of the few moments I remember vividly about the accident. The seconds leading up to that point happened too fast. The moments after the initial impact are a blur, either because how quickly they happened, or because I passed out. But that moment where I saw the oily, dirty pavement racing towards my face and then felt the impact are etched into my memory like a horrible Fortnite dance.
