"You must be joking. When?"
"Oh, I remember, I was on your way to your house, remember? I saw it, too. No one tried to run him down. He jumped in front of the car."
"What? No, I could see the malicious intent in the driver;s eyes. Your view must have been blocked."
"I was closer. Its your view that is blocked."
" But why would he do such a thing?And he is still alive"
"I don't know. I told you he is weird. Maybe he gets a kick out of narrowly missing out on death."
"He can't. He is paranoid about death."
