Six Sentence Sunday March 27

I found this web site on my friend, Sue's, blog, where people post six sentence excerpts from their work and leave their links to it. This is my first time to try it. Mine are taken from a previous post entitled "Places I Ought Not Go".

I begin to wonder if this lunatic in my back seat is having delusions of being a hero.

“Shouldn't you be radioing in for help or something?”

“And tell them what?!” His calm demeanor snapped. “That I left my squad car on the side of the highway with the keys still in it, jumped into a car with a crazy woman who thinks she can ‘feel’ a monster’s presence, and then runs over God knows what?” He pauses for a second, “Probably some poor motorist who was stranded and looking for help… I’m gonna lose my job over this one.”
