I had just paid my phone bill and was waiting for a ride when I heard a sickening crunch followed by screams of anguish and horror. With all the cars braking I figured that someone might have been run over. There was no screech of metal rending on metal that told me otherwise.
And there she was in a pool of blood.
There's a police outpost at the corner with some two to four cops on station everyday until about 8pm. Some immediately made after the vehicle which had turned right towards Cubao. And some were there beside the body -- for she was killed and crushed immediately.
I sat down for awhile feeling sick to my stomach. Just like that she was gone.
