5 minutes: Empty truck blocks

It blocks the way out of the alley. I see the guys behind it. They're trying to load some large wooden crates into the back.

I shouldn't have tried to take a shortcut. Nothing to do now but to head back.

I put the vehicle in reverse, and turn my head to look out the rear. Coast is clear, nothing to worry about. But it was still a stupid idea trying to come down this way though. Lesson learned I guess.

Screech, I hear the teeth-grating sound of metal on brick. Holy s***.

I don't want to know what happened, but instinctively I already know. I wasn't paying enough attention. I can barely open the door and get out. She had trusted me to take good care of her car.
