Roadside

Tires rolled over rumble strips at the side of the road and Wallace startled awake.  For hours he drove down dark highway, all the while his foot planted firmly on the accelerator.

He shook his head to wake himself.  He couldn’t stop.

The last time he stopped he saw something on the roadside.  Something large, horned, and unnatural.  Fear sent Wallace speeding away from the sinister laugh of the monster.

Wallace cursed as the ’empty’ light illuminated.  The car slowly rolled to a stop.

As it came to a rest, the windshield shattered and the sinister laugh filled his ears.
