I have never been a fun of highways, more so in the deep of the night. That is why I ensure that I am home before 7 pm or speed up before the demons in the darkness catch up with me.
However, on this unfortunate day, I was held up longer than usual so left office after 8 pm. No amount of soothing music would calm my frazzled nerves. My mind conjured up all kinds of evil occurrences. While I managed to quiet one, another popped up.
And as fate would have it, a few miles after my work place, I saw a figure come from the darkness. “Oh no,” I said to meslef, “this can’t be happening.” I hooted for the little person to get out of the way but she was not budging. Thoughts of zombies, and vampires clouded my mind and I wondered if this was my unlucky day.
Nonetheless, I could not knock this person over and live with it. Slowing down, I came to a halt. With my windows high up and the doors locked I realized that this was a girl in distress.
As I said a little prayer,another girl and a lady emerged out of the darkness. They all seemed under the weather and terrified. Letting them into my car as I continued to pray, I got to learn that they were running from their captors and had been in the woods for the last 36 hours.
Though it was a sad story, I was glad that I was not being attacked by blood hungry creatures.
