We ran for maybe a few minutes, the crazy lady closely following, before we came across another highway packed with cars.  We headed into one with its engine still on and music blaring on the radio.  copyright protection20PENANA9f5R99KrCe

"You have a driving permit, don't you?" Jeremy asked.  "You drive."  copyright protection20PENANAp4tL3VNupd

"Well, I've only had it for a week," I protested, but I sat in the driver's seat anyway.  Jeremy sat in the passenger's seat.  copyright protection20PENANAHXuOlBVJR6

"Hurry up and drive!" Jeremy demanded.  "The butterfly knife lady's gaining on us."  copyright protection20PENANA30m9SviCWU

I put my foot on the pedals, then realized there were three.  "Uh Jeremy, it's a stick shift.  I can't drive a stick shift," I said.  copyright protection20PENANAQmZk73gVxF

"She's here!"  Jeremy screamed.  "Drive!!!"  copyright protection20PENANA8fDD3ZfZI6

The ignition was already on, and the car was in first gear, so stepped on the gas and we lurched forward.  copyright protection20PENANA5L6rVZXdBU

"Told you that you could do it," Jeremy congratulated.  Suddenly, the engine started groaning all weird, like it was broken.  copyright protection20PENANA8sh7Noa3jI

"What's that?" I asked.  copyright protection20PENANAJsXn60mlZ5

"Um, I think you're revving the engine," Jeremy said.  "You've got to change gear."  copyright protection20PENANAr5RyxMxv09

I stared nervously at the third pedal.  "Okay, here goes nothing," I said.  I stepped on the pedal and tried to jam the gear stick into the second gear position as fast as possible.  I was rewarded by this even worse grinding sound, and the car completely stopped.  copyright protection20PENANAp8CGfp5qtp

"What'd you do!" Jeremy demanded.  copyright protection20PENANA8dR5BX6Xj6

"I don't know," I admitted.  "I think the car stalled.  copyright protection20PENANA2KcTjJGRfG

"Darn," Jeremy said.  "Let's—"copyright protection20PENANA1EODl43qux

Suddenly, the lady with the butterfly knife appeared at the passenger door.  She stabbed her knife and shattered the passenger window, glass spraying all over Jeremy.  copyright protection20PENANAPCLHImFPkY

"Get over here!" the crazy lady screamed.  I opened my door and shot out of the car.  copyright protection20PENANAWmJ8g3SWU7

"AH! Run, get out!" Jeremy screamed.  He lept over the center console and ran after me.  copyright protection20PENANADVMrz7wDy0

We continued running until we reached an automatic Honda Accord.  We hopped in and I immediately drove it off the highway.  I tried to maneuver over the rocks and grass, but we hadn't picked an SUV or a truck, so there was lots of scraping and scratching.  copyright protection20PENANAboDW6miLcD

"Um, is that smoke coming from the hood," Jeremy asked.  copyright protection20PENANAK8Zuhgxadr

"Maybe…" I responded.  I abruptly noticed I hadn't had my seatbelt on.  "Wait, do you have your seatbelt on?"  copyright protection20PENANAhQn4iWcOAK

Jeremy only had time to say, "You're going to ask me that now!" before I drove the car into a ditch.  copyright protection20PENANAPL9tHfQ012

The airbags deployed and I hit the exploding bag with full force.  The windshield shattered and sprayed us with even more broken glass.  I never had so much broken glass impaled in my face in my life.  Good thing I was only driving at 15mph because of the rocks, or we both would have gone flying through the window, lying in broken heaps ten meters away.  copyright protection20PENANADLbDfsUMC7

"What was that?" Jeremy rightly asked.  "Did we just crash again?"  copyright protection20PENANAeUYBZgyb58

I peeled my face off the deflated airbag.  If I was angry before, this really made me mad.  "Why are we still alive?" I demanded.  "We've been in three car crashes within the last half an hour."  copyright protection20PENANAWVT5oBkfBl

"I dunno, David, but we gotta get out of here," Jeremy sputtered.  "There's a snake crawling through the windshield."  copyright protection20PENANAhf7tTmWN9z

"Oh, shoot!"  We both sprinted out of the car and ran toward the nearest road, which was less crowded than the highway, but still quite a problem.  copyright protection20PENANAUotSZt9xEf

"Get over here!" a scream echoed in the distance.  copyright protection20PENANAGAazGza0OM

As if I needed my day to get worse.  First, a car accident.  Then, a crazy lady with a butterfly knife chased us into a car and attacked us. We crashed our third car and a snake chased us out of it.  Now, we have good reason to think the crazy lady was on our tail.  copyright protection20PENANAm62tzVQvIZ

"There's a car, just get into it!" Jeremy screamed.  I hopped into the nearest gray SUV and made sure Jeremy slung on his seatbelt before I started the car.  The key was still in the ignition as if whoever owned the car was sleepwalking.  copyright protection20PENANA4Dnywn1GVG

I wove through the line of stopped cars, trying not to crash.  copyright protection20PENANAVBg6bWGmXu

"Woah," Jeremy said as I touched the Mini next to us.  "Try not to hit everything, please."  copyright protection20PENANA9jBbMa7CGQ

"Hey, I told you, I've only had my permit for a week," I said, scratching the Ford Taurus next to us.  I drove haphazardly down the road, looking for Jeremy's exit.  We really needed to get off the road.  copyright protection20PENANACLt0j0olGk

"Take that exit.  NOW!" Jeremy screamed.  I cut three lanes and drove onto the ramp, nearly missing it.  copyright protection20PENANA1CViI7fptc

Surprisingly, back in town, there were actually people driving in cars, albeit a lot fewer than normal.  I precariously drive the familiar road to Jeremy's house, parking in the driveway.  copyright protection20PENANATDwuPjFWWm

"Alright, time to find out what in the world's going on," Jeremy said, hopping out of the car.  copyright protection20PENANAMy7gzrhXMY

"Yessiree," I responded.  I followed Jeremy to the front door, which was suspiciously hanging ajar.  Sounds of baseball rang from the inside.  copyright protection20PENANAiNAd6jllIP

"Come on, let's get it over with," I say, tugging at the door and pushing Jeremy into his own house.  copyright protection20PENANAyCs47hnNej
