I am writing a narrative essay and I am currently working on the final touches. Right now I am focusing my attention on the title. The essay is a look back on a couple days, several years ago that a friend and I were nearly killed in a motorcycle accident. I am considering the use of retrospective in my title but not sure if I am using it properly.
"A retrospective flash back that nearly killed me and a friend"
"Retrospect on a week that a friend and I nearly died"
None of these sound right to me.
