After what you have been through, trusting another stranger is the last thing you want to do.
You roll off the road into the dense brush in the run-off ditch.You are wet, tired, bleeding, and it is four hours until dawn. But you know you cannot die out here. You must get back to the one you love, and besides, you are not wearing clean underwear, and your mom always told you that if you ever died on the side of the road, you had better have on clean underwear. But it was laundry day.
As you get up and force yourself to walk, it begins to rain. Through the lightning flashes you see what appears to be a cave. Inside you could be warm and dry, at least until dawn.
As you approach the cave, you hear a loud screech that sounds as though it has come from within. Your blood runs cold.
Do you go into the cave to get dry or do you keep walking along the ditch?
