Grace had been driving for hours but she didn’t care. Stopping just once to pee on the side of the dirt road and to eat half of a sandwich, Grace was determined to make up for the lost time of sleeping in earlier today. Tapping her fingers on the steering wheel and listening to the music, Grace noticed that the truck started to chug violently.
“Oh, no. No, no, no, no.” Grace cried. The jerking increased and smoke started coming out from under the hood. “Please, don’t die.” Grace pleaded with the dying heap of metal. With a final lurch, the truck spat out its last breath and quit.
“Crap.” Grace swore, desperately tapping the wires together again. Nothing was happening. It was most definitely dead. Looking around, Grace noticed that at least it died conveniently outside of a bar. Maybe someone inside could offer her a ride the rest of the way. Getting out of the truck, Grace kicked the driver side door shut and huffed into the bar.
It was dark inside and really run down. A few patrons were scattered around, lost in their drinks. Grace looked over to the bar and found a bartender standing there, polishing a glass.
“Well, shit. Thank you for bringing my truck back to me. But really, you didn’t have to go through the trouble. I would have gotten it eventually.” The bartender teased. Grace sank into the barstool in front of him. “Of all the people in the world, I had to steal HIS car?!” Grace thought to herself.
“I…uhhh…” Grace started to say, nervously looking around.” The bartender started laughing.
“It’s okay. Angelo told me. I’m his brother, Vito. He warned me to get that lump of crap off of his property.” Vito was laughing hard.
“We like to pull pranks on each other. He won this round.” Grace let out the breath she was holding and laughed along with Vito.
“So, you must be Grace. Can I make you a Zebra Fizz?” Vito asked. Grace wasn’t old enough for alcohol but it didn’t seem like Vito cared.
“Sure, that sounds great.” Grace smiled.
“So, I hear you’re headed out to Magnolia Promenade. With that crap truck dying on you, how are you going to make it the rest of the way?” Vito asked.
“Walking. It can’t be that much further. I’ve been driving for hours.”
“Well, Magnolia Promenade is still another 4 hours away.” Vito replied, watching Grace’s face fall with what he said. “Look, I’m headed out to the outskirts of MP tonight for… business…I could drive you.” Vito offered. “Would be nice to have a pretty little thing like you to stare at. It would make the drive shorter, you know what I mean?” Grace was creeped out. But she didn’t care. She had to make it there tonight if she was going to get back on schedule.
“Sounds great. Thank you for the ride.” Grace smiled.
