CHAPTER SIXTEEN: Run in Circles, Scream and Shout

 

Kim said: “I’m ready, I guess.”

“You guess?”

“Yeah, I love seeing Sarah and Aspen and the Aunties but Eddie makes me crazy.”

Ambros grinned: “Well, thanks for getting me off the hook. I don’t need crazy in my life right now, thanks.”

“You’re welcome. But with the Jeep in the shop, I still need a ride.”

“Happy to oblige.”

He took the main streets until he got to Greenbrier Road where he turned south and began to negotiate the first winding stretch of pavement.

Kim was chattering happily. He smiled and made listening sounds as he flicked on the headlights and wipers.

A large truck shot past them, engine growling. From the corner of his eye he got the slightest impression of green and white; he gritted his teeth, thinking: ‘Uh-oh.’

Another truck, perhaps a bit smaller, roared up behind them, then slowed down and tailgated.

Ambros had become fairly familiar with Greenbrier Road in the past few months, and he knew there was a fork up ahead. He spoke quietly but firmly, interrupting Kim: “Check your seat belt, bend forward at the waist and duck your head down as far as possible. Hands over the back of your head...”

She stared at him eyes wide and he said simply: “Do it.”
