I’m not sure how long I’d been driving. Hours. I hadn’t stopped once. Not to get food or to pee. Funny how when your life is in danger, you forget about the basics.
If you need to, you can operate just on pure adrenaline.
But the sun is now rising, streaking the sky orange, and the gas gage just dinged at me. I hadn’t thought about gas either. I’m lucky I hadn’t run out in the middle of the night, and it’s even luckier that the billboard is advertising everything I need right at this moment, only a couple of exits away.
