Highway Panic

A young woman had along drive a head of her that night. She pulled into a service station to refuel, then went inside to pay and buy herself a gum and potato chips. As she drove off, a huge truck pulled out beside her.

Out on the highway once again, the girl realized that the truck was very close behind, uncomfortable close. She stepped on the accelerator, but to her dismay, the truck driver accelerated, too.

I must be imagining this, she thought, trying not to panic, yet whether she slowed down, changed lanes or speeded up, the truck stayed with her. Its big headlights shining straight into her ear.

Unable to stand it any longer, the girl turned into the next station she came to. The truck pulled off, the highway on her tail, jamming on the brakes, she jumped put and raced to the drivers side of the truck.

At the same moment, a man leapt out of the back of her car where he had been crouching ever since the last stop. The truck driver was too quick for him and caught him just as he tried to make it to the open field behind the station.

Later, after the police had come, the driver went over to the young woman. I saw him jump into your car just before you came out of the station back there. But there was no time to warn you before you drove off. The only thing that I could think of was to stick to close to you with my high beams flooding your car so that he would know. I would see him if he tried to do anything to you.
