At some point, he must have dozed off, but woke with a start. A pregnant lady with a little boy was spreading out a blanket where Abbie had been. Sitting up, he could see her walking towards the boardwalk that went to the street. Jumping up, he grabbed his pack, towels, and shoes and ran to catch up, shoving things into his pack as he walked. Once he was on the boardwalk, Justin’s eyes searched for her and saw her crossing the street towards a blue compact car.

“Abbie! Abbie!” He called out as he ran across the street without even looking for traffic. At midday, beach-going tourists and locals were coming and going. Horns blared. Brakes screeched.

Finally seeing him, she screamed and hit the brakes. As the car struck him, Justin was thrown on to the street. Fortunately, his backpack kept his head from hitting the pavement.
