I kept to deserted back roads, away from streetlights and towns. It wasn’t as if you could see me coming or feel a change in the air when I got nearer to you, but the secrecy of it made me feel like a ninja.
Hiding in the shadows, I turned off my headlights on the straight stretches letting the moon guide my way. The dashboard’s red glow bathed my hands in crimson, making me shudder with anticipation.
I cranked up the radio, the music pushing me to drive faster, more purposefully, because it was almost sunrise and I was overdue.
