Third person's pov

"Daddy how much further" the little boy whines drowsily while emitting a yawn.

"How about we play a game of close your eyes and I count to 10" his father suggested, glancing through the front view of the driver's seat. Laughing, the little boy leans on the center console to whisper in his father's ear

"I've told you countless times that it's called hide and seek and not close your eyes".

"You don't have to whisper Rodrigo since there's no one around and besides I can take correction properly like a grown ass man"his father said while ruffling his hair with his dormant hand. "We also can't play hide and seek since I'm driving so your old man has to improvise"he continued.

"Ok daddy! game on" the little boy shouted in excitement from the backseat, eyes as bright as saucers and ears as sharp as a knife so the game began.

"4....5....6...OMG! don't open your eyes Rodrigo!!! his father cried from the driver's seat trying to shield the little boy with his whole body.

There were screeching sounds and lots of pain before the unmistakeable sound of the siren and everything went bleak.
