Did You Ever Drive Down a Lonely Two Lane Blacktop Late at Night and Wonder……?


Blood Alley

Did you ever ride down a lonely  two lane black top late at night? Just you and the road and the sound of the tires as they rolled against the blacktop. Did you play games in your head about what was round the bend or over the next hill? Did you see things in the road that weren’t there? Did you hear things in the  wind that weren’t there? Did you wonder what you would do if you saw someone in the middle of the road who looked like they might need assistance but there was no vehichle to be found? Did you ever think you saw the glow of eyes peering at you from unseen places?

If the answer to all these questions is “yes”, then you might just want to read how Bubba handled this very situation on a dark, lonely very late night on State Hwy 27 known as Blood Alley. You see Bubba is a veteran over the road wheel handler who is afraid of nothing. He has traveled many miles behind the wheel of his rig and he witnessed many things. He is a beer bellied, hard drinking, tobacco chewing, womanizer who has been there and done that.

That is until….. one night as he travels Blood Alley. The only thing on his mind as he listens to his favorite country music station which is playing cheating songs and drinking songs is the fact that he is running behind, because his latest ex-wife has just thrown him out for of all things cheating on her. Bubba tried to explain that the woman meant nothing to him, but the wife wasn’t buying it anymore. She just didn’t understand that “he had needs” on the road.

So here he is running behind because he had to find a place to store what few belongings she gave him via the yard, cussing women in general and her in particular when he sees it. As the jake brakes squeal, the smoke bellows from the tires and Bubba grips the wheel to keep the rig from jackknifing, he does’t relize that from this moment on, he will never have to worry about his needs again.

Blood Alley a wonderful – scary- short story http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Alley-Short-Story-ebook/dp/B006Z10FFS/ref=sr_1_11?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1329831122&sr=1-11 that is sure to make you rethink those lonely dark, two lane blacktops late at night,
