The gas light was blinking, I tried to look around and I saw the ocean of cars but the gas station was nowhere to be found. “What are you looking for?” Mom asked.
“I am Running out of gas Mom and I’m late already”, I replied. That was the moment I got a feeling this day was about to get worse. I didn’t find a gas station.
