3. Trees don't run across roads

After the party, we drove home. It was about 1 am and we were both tired. I could hardly see where I was driving in the dark and we kept getting surprised by bumps and holes in the road. Jen was texting Tamara, who had held the party.

It was a reunion party for all the girls who had studied philosophy at college. Tamara was her best friend. Jen put her phone down and looked up at me. Her beautiful blue eyes shone in the moonlight. She smiled at me and looked at the road.

"Oh my God, did you see that!" she gasped and almost gave me a heart attack. I looked at the road, but there was nothing.

"What?" I said. "What did you see?" She had a frightened expression on her face.

"I swear, I saw someone run across the road!" she said. "We almost hit a person!"

I stopped the car and turned to look through the back window. There was nothing.

"Are you sure it wasn't just a tree or something? You know that no one ever comes out here," I said and looked at her.

"Are you suggesting that a tree ran across the road? " she almost screamed at me. I held my hand over my right ear, which was facing her.

"Honey Angel, I think you're just tired, it's very late. Now let's go home and you into bed, okay?" I said, trying to calm her down. She nodded slightly and answered with a quiet "Okay. "

 

When we arrived to the driveway, Jen squealed.

"Oh my God, Gavin! We forgot to close the door! " She said and undid her seatbelt.

"Are you sure?  I swear, I saw you close it." I said. She opened the car door and grabbed her purse.

"Well it is obvious that I didn't! " she said. I got out of the car and saw she was right. The front door was wide open. I stepped inside and she followed. We checked the house to see if anyone was inside, but everything was exactly as when we left.
