2. Chapter two
Night loomed over San Francisco as the Ford continued to drive in the dusty plains towards the main city. The problem with having a jail near a very popular city was that when they built the jail, They took the precaution of moving the jail at least 9 hours away from the city so if any in-mate did escape then they could easily catch them. This was a disadvantage to Julia because she had to try not fall asleep whilst behind the wheel, But it worked to the advantage to Tobey who had fell asleep about an hour ago. The jail wasn't technically in San Francisco but it was closer to San Francisco than anywhere else, So it was just had San Francisco in its name. Julia was exhausted to say the least, And she still had 8 hours to go! Julia was extremely thankful that Tobey trusted her driving and felt comfortable enough around her to fall asleep in her presence, But she would love to take a break. The car's low hum was relaxing, And was better than music in her opinion. Why need music when you have a 450 Horsepower engine purring underneath you? Julia certainly didn't! Nightfall had slowly crept onto the pair, And Julia secretly hoped that Tobey would wake up soon and take over the wheel because every passing second was becoming a challenge to stay awake. The drive to pick up Tobey had been long, And she was hoping that Tobey wouldn't just fall asleep like he did. Tobey started to stir quietly in his seat, Murmuring to himself as he did. "Oh, Welcome back sleepy head! About time." Julia stated, Eyes momentarily slipping from the dusty plain road ahead to Tobey. Tobey stretched out his arms and yawned louder than was probably neccesary, And shifted around in his seat uncomfortably. Tobey rubbed his eyes sleepily and looked at Julia's face half casted in shadows, Which attracted the attention of Julia. "What?" Julia asked, Looking at Tobey's sleepy eyes which were slowly adjusting to his surroundings. "Switch" Tobey stated , Unbuckling his seat belt. Julia smiled a genuine smile at his statement and sighed happily. "God i thought you would never ask!" Julia said, Holding onto the steering wheel whilst Tobey unbuckled her seat belt and started to make his way over to the drivers side. Julia started shifting to the right, Hands not leaving the comfort of the warm leather steering wheel whilst Tobey started to put his feet onto the pedals. "Right. Got it." Tobey said, Giving Julia the opportunity to finally leave the wheel without crashing the car. Julia moved her legs over to the passenger side of the car and carefully slid over to the seat, Making sure her heels didn't get caught in the process and her dress didn't ride up. Tobey moved around her and into the seat, His eyes completly foccused on the road ahead making sure they didn't crash into the looming rocks or fall of the side of the road into the endless pit below them. Julia managed to get into her seat allowing Tobey to sit down in the drivers seat. Julia grabbed her seat belt, Pulled it over herself and clipped it into place, Adjusting her postion so it didn't dig into her neck but was still in a good position to save her if the car suddenly to a de-tour towards the rocks. "Would you like me to buckle you up, Tobey?" Julia asked, Whilst moving herself around to look at Tobey. "Yeah please Julia." Tobey replied, Smiling at Julia though his eyes never left the road. Julia nodded at him and leaned over to his left shoulder, Pulling the black seatbelt over his chest and clipping it into place. Tobey nodded his thanks to Julia and looked over at Julia moving back into her seat. "Go to sleep Julia. I can take it from here" Tobey said.
"Ok Tobey thanks. Don't crash my baby Tobey! " Julia joked before turning her head into the warm seating and let herself relax to the low hum of the car and Tobey's soft breathing.
