Madison says: Silver's snippet is put together well and flows nicely. It makes me want to read more.
TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN. The warning words buzzed through my brain. The engine coughed and with my foot on the brake, I revved the motor. It coughed again. Died. Criminy.
Here I was, stuck on a dark road on the edge of town. After midnight and not another set of headlights in sight. I could see flickers about half a mile away—in a direction where I wouldn’t have to wade.
I searched through the car. No raincoat. No umbrella. Great. Looking out the window, I realize more water was flowing along the street. I had to get out or risk getting washed away. Pushing open the door, a gushing waterfall of rain drenched me. Stumbling, I clutched the door and stayed on my feet. I had to get to high ground—and those lights.
Ten minutes, an hour, I couldn’t tell how long I’d been trudging through the storm, but I finally reached the entrance gate. Locked. I yelled, tried to rattle the bars. A figure in a black slicker emerged from the gatehouse.
“My car died. The storm,” I explained.
The hood slid back. Hollywood. By pure dumb luck, I’d found my way to Nightriderland.
“Love the wet teeshirt look, babe.”
I’m sure he did. I wasn't wearing a bra.
