Start: introduction to characters
Problem: jamesrea2 driving dirty
Problem end: jamesrea2 rolling the zonda for the 300th time
Hi my name is jamesrea1 and right at the moment I'm racing my twin brother jamesrea2 who's in a pagani zonda R while I'm in the slowest car in gran turismo 5. Oof why did he crash into me with that manic zonda!!? Ok he rolled over I'm safe for 3 seconds if he goes at my speed! But he's at 200 kilometres an hour! Zooooommmm , crash. good he won't catch me because the next corner is downhill on 15 degree slope and really sharp! Smack! Oof he drifted into me zoooom , Now he's on the power strait no offence jamesrea2 but you are terrible at driving. Next thing that i know is I am on the power straight and then I see jamesrea2 who has rolled the zonda up ahead. As soon as I get past the zonda it restarts and then it goes behind me and pulls into the pits . I slowly creep past the pits at 15km an hour. As soon as I pass the pit’s exit the zonda pulls out of the exit of the pits suddenly the zonda spins out of control and into a burnout sending my teeny car flying ahead. I manage to zoom past the corner but lose all the speed that the zonda gave me on the second corner.
Unluckily I'm onto the power straight, well the first one. The zonda manages to just get past me before drifting into the wall. I get up the hill and start coming down the hill and turn the corner. SSSLLLLLAAAAAMMMMMM I'm sent flying again and it takes the toll on the car and the chasis break.

I'm 50 floors up, directly below me is the street.
I feel like the glass is going to break! My heart is beating really fast. I hear the wind whistling. I see a skydiver jump off the top of the building with a rope. They scream as the ground met them… in mid air. The cars look like headless ants crawling around.
I look at my cousins and they show no traces of fear. I thought why are they not scared? I see a clock on the wall. It says 05, 04, 03, 02, 01, WHOOSH goes a skydiver. It. Must be a skydive countdown, I think. Thankfully it's not connected to a giant battery of TNT. Even the floor of the lift is glass.
I see humans that look like sand and buildings that look like toy buildings. I hear the wind playing with the windows and metal. I step on the glass. A panel next to the glass says this glass is 60cm thick and is as strong as concrete, how is that supposed to reassure you I think. Whoosh okay that does not help. (AGAIN)
The floor seems to be dropping on a diagonal slope. I feel like the sky tower is swaying meter by meter. I'm speechless like a fish out of water. I freeze literally, frozen.
Everything goes wonky, really wonky. A problem is the walls seem really thin. Whoosh, okay I'm going to the other side. No your not snaps grandma. My cousin Charlie drags me onto the glass…
… this time I don't clamber back up I face my fear and hit it smack on the forehead. I'm soon interested in how people are mostly coming from a southwest direction. Even more strangely the cars are coming mostly from a northeast direction, I wonder where they are going.
On to the next floor I say in my head… We gather in the lift to find out it just left! And were going to have to wait another terrifying 5 minutes.
