During winter, Shawn was thinking about death. It was just right after Christmas . That's when Shawn looked into death's eyes one time.
It was when they were going to school one day. Shawn was focusing out the front.
That moment Shawn saw saw the dog flew. Shawn watched on how the dog got twisted and turned under the car.
The dog was struggling to walk and then collapsed to the ground. Cindy burst out tears and got out of the car. Then ran to the dog and sat beside the dog, lifting his head gently into her lap.
The dog jerked and was bleeding from his mouth and nostrils. Then at that moment, Shawn saw the dog's brown eyes streaking with blood. Then instant he stopped squirming and the dog died. Afterwards Shawn saw death looking at him.
They went back to the house. Cindy was all upset and told her it was not all okay. Shawn saw how the dog's life ended. That's how close he was to death. Now Shawn does not know what his dad is planning.
