Terrible Good Luck

Callie Young was born with bad luck. But not completely bad, you see. For she had terrible good luck- which it just so happens is the worst kind.

This phenomenon first occured the fifth day of her life. Her parents were driving to a friend’s house to show off little Callie. Their small car was hit by a semi, instantly killing her father and leaving her mother severly injured. Baby Callie remained unharmed.

Her terrible good luck did not stop there. On her fifth birthday she was playing outside, and ran into the road. Her aunt, whoms care Callie’d been left in, dashed into the street to get her off it- as playing in traffic is never a good idea. Callie did indeed make it off the road, though her aunt was hit by a car and had to have a leg amputated.

Again, her terrible good luck did not cease.
