The Previous Owner #128


"Oh hi," she said, "my car broke down and my cell phone is dead."

"Well, Weeping Springs is back that way. There's an auto shop there. They can tow your car but probably won't be able to fix it until tomorrow. But there's a motel there too. You could get a room until morning."

She exhaled a sigh of relief, "That would be super, thank you."

"Grab what you need to take and lock the car up and I'll run you back there."

I got back in the car and watched her moving in and out of my headlights' beams.
