Please enjoy this sample from my upcoming work of horror: The Girl on the Highway !
Tyrese Haroldson, the driver of the tanker, watched what appeared at first to be a dark shadow in the fog up ahead about 20 yards. He suspected it could have been a motorcycle. But then he noticed that this object was not moving. Before he knew it, he saw the outline of an attractive woman’s figure in his lane directly in front of him! She appeared to be in a slight daze as if maybe she had an accident. She was dressed as if she were out at a night club on a Friday or Saturday night, wearing a skirt that stopped at the middle of her thighs, and a jacket that stopped just below her elbows. A loose fitting shirt came down exposing generous cleavage. Her outfit looked rather retro.
But his mind immediately shifted into emergency mode as he realized he was going too fast and would surely hit her unless she was quick enough to dart out of the way! But it appeared that she was frozen in shock, her eyes full of worry and horror.
“Holy shit,” he said as he turned the wheel hard clockwise in a knee-jerk response to miss the young lady.
His instructor saw her too and was in total shock. Fear shot through his mind as he worried that a woman may have been run over by one of his students as he sat idle and useless in the passenger-side seat. And this oversight went almost unnoticed until the whole cab seemed to tremble intermittently. He then tried to grab the wheel and turn it back the way from which it had come, but it was already too late!
