The night closed around Lucas. No bars on his cell, no lights anywhere. His rental car was dead. A chill crept up his back and he spun around, expecting to see someone watching, but only shadows lay behind.
The heavy darkness of the empty road created a strange feeling of solitude; not simply of being alone, but of being alone forever.

Guess I’ll find a haunted house next.”
