desperately stepped on the accelerator. I was going to be the fastest in my life.

When we entered the freeway, the driver of the car behind us passed by yelled at us. The car went away at a tremendous speed, but the cars on the next side lane were also running at tremendous speed, so I was desperately grasping the steering wheel while dripping with fear and surprise. "Yes, Mr. Takaoka, please don't mind. Hey, this road is fine, so you should speed up more and more! Hi!!, Hi!! Accelerator! Accelerator!!"

Mr. Jay was not laughing at all on his face and was sitting back in his seat with a little tiredness.

After joining the line of Freeway, we went silent. It seemed that he was a little bit haggard and did not talk to me at all. On that day, of course I just ran straight through the lane where I couldn't change any lanes. There were three big lanes on the Freeway, however, I had an only one lane because, as you know, I could not change the lanes as I was so scared.

Although I was much aware that our speed was so slow, I could not speed up. So the speed of our car soon fell to the level of a general road.

Mr. Jay hastily cried to me, "Mr. Takaoka, it's too, too late. Take a look at the speedometer. 40 miles. Please give me around 60 miles."

I knew the situation, but I was sorry that I could not speed up. Then, Mr. Jay pushed my right foot and shouted, "Accelerator, Accelerator".

After that, I just went straight and straight for a considerable distance. I just ran and ran, and the time passed by.

After a long time and a long, long distance from the center of LA, I guessed that I straightly drove it for around 40 minutes.

Mr. Jay finally said, "Hi, Mr. Takaoka, let's get off the freeway." I couldn't figure out what to do as it was my first time to get on. I asked him, "Well, sir, are you going to get off?" "Yeah!" And, after that, I somehow got off the Freeway, but I must have made a U-turn in order to return to the center of L.A.

When our car came back to the center of L.A, the training for the day was finally over.

At the end of the day's class, Mr. Jay said to me,

"Mr. Takaoka, you got on the freeway for the first time today, but you would have been dead without me.

Even if you didn't die, you wouldn't have been able to get off the and make a U-turn and would have gone straight forever. Perhaps, I'm sure that you would be in San Diego now"
