Keep driving. Ignore the lights in your rearview mirror. That’s what I told myself when I slid over a patch of the old dirt road, so wash-boarded, it threatened to send me flying through the curve instead of around it. The dust and the change of direction obscured the lights for just a moment. Not long enough. He was getting closer.
I hit the gas when I neared Strawberry Hill, hoping I could gain some ground on the long straightaway. The road filled with deep ruts on the incline, and my car fishtailed as I pulled on the wheel, trying desperately to bring it under control. My clammy hands stuck to the leather covered steering wheel. They were like Velcro when I peeled them away, turning the wheel this way and that until I had my car square on the road.
