Shaken, Rattled, and Rolling
You cruise to a gentle stop at the red light. It's the end of the work day. You're looking forward to leftover lasagna, two hours of Netflix, and if the heat sticks around, a shower before bed. Traffic has been lighter than normal for a Thursday which is a nice contrast to the stress of working all week for a company that doesn't care about you.
A white mini-cooper eases up next to you on your left. A hard-faced blond stares at you so hard that you almost miss the fact that she is wearing a white racing helmet. Her left eye twitches and she slides a dark visor down over her face and nods once.
You're not a racer. You don't even like to speed. But somehow her challenge electrifies something inside you. A voice you don't recognize comes out of your mouth. "You're on."
The green light explodes into existence and the mini-cooper hurtles forward in a squealing of wheels. You're less than a second behind her, pushing every limit.
Your car responds to the lightest touch and feels more alive than it's ever been.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
