I shake my head. ”Sorry, but I gotta ask you to go. Someone is…um… coming back. ”
”Someone…who? ” his face got more serious like I just gave him some relevant information. ”is it a man? ”
”Maybe if you wanna help me, you can call me a tow truck. My… boyfriend is gone for help and he should be back any time now. In case, um… he didn get far maybe you could call a tow truck to haul us out of here. ”
Gosh, I sound so stupid but I guess Im just stalling him…
”Boyfriend? ” he snaps. And then he growls.
Hes just … growling for a long time, hostility rolling off him.
I doubt this guy has any help to render. I mean, the first clue cos hes naked.
No one is coming to help me…Im dead!
I can tell that this won end well. My phone has no signal, and if the primitive man is right, I will crash into the river soon.
This feels like it won end well and shit, Im unarmed
”Open, ” he snaps.
I shake my head. ”Sorry, but no. ”
I put my phone to my ear to start making a pretense call and theres no signal, but I pretend there is anyway.
”Are you almost back? Did you get help? Oh good. Okay! ”
”What? ” He tilts his head.
”Bye, sweetie. ” I pretend to hang up. ”Hes gonna be back any time so you can just go. ”
”Open the door, ” the guy demands.
”Sorry, no. I can do that. Im not opening the door to a naked man in the woods. Uh uh. ”
He frowns. ”Obey me, female. ”
I twitch. Female?
To be sincere, if someone was narrating this story to me, itll have a good laugh but its not funny right now. I could be dead or worse in a matter of minutes.
His eyes glitter strangely. Light hits them or something and they go a reflective green, like… like a cat or dog. No, like a wolf, the wolf who was likely pissed because I accidentally hit him with my car.
Shivers run down my spine and the cold gets uncomfortable. I am cold to my eyelids right now.
”Name? ” he demands.
The pace of the rain picks up and its more than drenched him now. Why is he naked? The fact hes naked keeps recalling me in my head trying to make me admit what I think is going on.
My heart rate spikes and I feel like I can get any air.
I look around me, looking for something to defend myself with. Theres nothing. I mean, Im in my car, but he could break my window.
He places his forehead against the glass for a moment and breathes deeply like hes trying to calm himself.
Why is he even angry? I don know this man from anywhere! What have I done to deserve this?
The car feels like it moves just a little. God. I have it in the park.
Landslip. Rain, plus mud plus car nose pointing down a hill toward the water. if hes correct that means I am in trouble.
I survey the landscape ahead. Trees everywhere. There is one big one directly in front of me. If my car moves more than a few feet down, itll crunch into that tree.
I won go down to any fast-moving water, I don think. Itll stay there. Its a huge tree. But its gonna cause damage
”What are you called? ” he grinds out, breath fogging up the window.
My heart is galloping in my chest.
He pulls on the drivers door handle, this time looking angry and I see the door handle in his hand.
He throws it, rounds the hood, goes to the front passenger door, and pulls on the handle
He breaks the passenger handle, too. He glares at it before tossing it.
”They are all locked in, ” I say.
”Stop breaking my car! ” I scream in anger.
What kind of strength does he have to just easily break my car handle?
My poor car! My baby!
His eyes hit mine and his nostrils flare. Damn. He looks like he wants to inflict pain on me.
”D-don . Please. Just go away, ” I plead. God. Im wishing I was back in that cabin of ill repute right now. What the heck does my horoscope say today?
”What are you called? ” he demands.
”What are you called? ” I fire back, snarkily.
Maybe I shouldn have done that last one.
”Im Clayton. ” He then bumps up his chin.
”Open this door now. ”
”Sorry, Clayton, no. My boyfriend will be here any— ”
Oh, he is mad! He slaps the window, making me stop talking, making my body freeze tight before I dive through the two front seats into the back. I catch the sight of back dimples and I try really hard not to look downward as more of his form comes into view…I Don wanna see this lord.
”Boyfriend, ” he repeats through tight teeth and slaps the roof angrily. My god is this jealousy from someone I barely know? He says it almost like its a dare or like I dare to have a boyfriend.
”Oh my God. Did you just dent my roof, too? ”
He is ruining my car! Is he mad?
The car begins to slide some more, and I think oh shit as it rolls. He gets a furious look on his face as he moves with the car, holding onto the roof, as if hes trying to stop it from moving, but hes only sliding with it. It rests with a crunching sound against that tree that makes me groan. My poor little red car.
Im trembling all over. Im trapped in my car, which is now champed, with no phone signal and a naked door handle-wrecking man. Plus, a wolf is out there somewhere! Unless Ive lost it and he is also that wolf.
Damn it! I rebuke myself for letting the thought seep past the lunacy-prevention barrier Ive worked so very hard to keep in place my whole life. Too late. Here we go…
My brain unleashes all Ive been trying to stop from invading it.
Same green eyes. Wolf goes, man is here. Naked. Nope, nope Nah. No. Thats crazy. But its obvious. The naked man is a werewolf. But its crazy.
Ive seen too many scary movies. Ive listened to Auntie Ruth and her crazy ”we are not alone ” and ”magic is real ” magnification one too many times. Strangely, today is the first anniversary of her death.
I shiver. Wait, what? It is, isn it?
This whole night feels like a bad, scary movie. Theres no such thing as werewolves. But…
Im still clutching my cell in my hand. I tap the screen and look.
I see a bar. A bar!
Oh, thank you, Jesus…I key in 9-1-1.
