“Almost there”, she repeated like a mantra. Almost , almost , almost .
Too scared to go back and too nervous to do anything but drive fast , with eyes fixed straight ahead on the empty road .
The howling wind still screamed outside but she couldn’t hear it . She couldn’t hear anything but her own heartbeat. Thud , thud , thud , it said . A pounding cacophony driving straight through her and stopping in her brain .
She turned the music louder . Trying to drown it out . Singing at the top of her lungs until her ears almost popped .
The road took a sharp curve to the left and she gasped .
Almost there .
But where ?
She was lost . This wasn’t the way home .
A soft touch on her left shoulder . She could feel the icy cold air through her body .
And a voice behind her said “Almost.”
