I may have slept. Don't know. My last few thoughts were weird, they didn't make sense. And when I looked around Archie was asleep but Doug was grinning.
"What?" I challenged him.
"You were talking in your sleep."
"I was? What did I say?"
"We need a sacrifice." Doug said it matter of factly, like it was a normal thing to say.
"Yeah. 'We need a sacrifice' you said."
Somewhere behind us the motorway rumbled, like some huge beast growling in its sleep. And in front of us, the trees settled on their haunches, watching their prey.
