The Old Couple

She was standing in the middle of the road. Vehicles were zooming past her, on both sides. She could hear her heart thumping loudly. "It is just a road, I'll cross it easily. How many times in my life have I crossed this road?" She reminded herself. But she was actually trying to convince her body, to calm down her aging heart and her weak nerves which felt taut right now. She tried to wave in front of a car to slow it down but the driver seemed too fast to notice the old woman struggling to cross the road.
