Lover's Lane

63 Ford

We had driven out of the city and found a side road in the country, away from lights and traffic. The moon was setting, everything was quiet. I moved closer, hoping she would reciprocate, this was hardly the first time for either of us, but she seemed tense and distant.

-"What is it? There's something on your mind, isn't there?"
-"I heard about a couple that was attacked in their car, it was out west here somewhere..."

Now I was the one feeling tense. It suddenly got very quiet.

-"OK, let's get out of here..."
-"Thanks."
We drove home in silence. The dark side won that night. There would be other nights, however...

So where is this quiet, out of the way, road, Professor?

Are you really on your way here? Will you give us a holler when you arrive?
