Throttled

It was the thrill of the wind blowing through her hair, the sun caressing her face, and the power controlled by her hands and feet that drove her to taking the red convertible out for a spin a second time. A route formed of twisting bends and sloping hills only added to the joy ride.

The bright red paint, and her exposed face when the top was down… She should have realized the risk she was taking. It didn’t take long for the police to find her.

If only she had waited until her employer was again on vacation.

  1. Enjoyable mix of imagery and action… (I mean, come on, “…taking the red convertible out for a spin a second time. A route formed of twisting bends and sloping hills only added to the joy ride.” how could you not hear the tires protest the turns and the wind urge caution)

  2. A job one of our children had… shuffling cars (fancy ones) around for a local auction – Having permission might take some of the fun out of it. But I’m sure getting to ride and drive cars that one could never afford was still nice. πŸ˜‰

    Fun read.

      1. What teen age boy would refuse that kind of job? πŸ˜‰ I’m not sure how he got it, much less remember how long he had it… but remember his silly grins and just a few stories of the autos he moved about. πŸ˜‰
