Never take Route 7 after 2 am; never stop at that service station after midnight; and never ever be on that highway on Halloween.
My gas gauge has been dipping toward “E” since my recklessness spirited me out of the cabin after Daryl and I argued over where we were spending Thanksgiving.
Warnings toss through my head as I pull into the station where a “service” sign flickers, but another car’s being gassed up and with relief I glance over at it just as a bloodied hand smears the inside passenger window.
One thought on “2:10 am on October 31”
EYES WIDE! will i sleep tonight? yeah ok, cause I’m not travelling anywhere. Well done! holy crap!
