Here we are again. This week we’re in a virtual restaurant near a virtual interstate highway. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented writer and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Our group is the Friday Fictioneers. The challenge for each of us is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt provided for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by The Reclining Gentleman. Thanks, RG.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the little blue frog in the blue box, after clicking on the link. The link for the other stories this week is as follows:

“I wish now I’d started home earlier. Rain’s beating down, and the moon’s hidden.
“Luckily, traffic’s light. The idiot behind me has his high beams on.
“All at once a man’s appearing far ahead, standing in my lane. I slam the breaks on, sliding into the other lane.
“I finally come to a stop. Mr. High Beams behind me has disappeared.
“Climbing out, I walk back down the highway. Shining my flashlight, I see in horror the highway has washed away. Mr. High Beams lies far below, lights still on.
“The other man has disappeared, but where to?”
