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 protection8PENANAcubnXqEmm5

"You have a driving permit, don't you?" Jeremy asked.  "You drive."  copyright protection8PENANAi3c46liVza

"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 protection8PENANA3vaa2VGtUu

"Hurry up and drive!" Jeremy demanded.  "The butterfly knife lady's gaining on us."  copyright protection8PENANAn7YyvVZ9im

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 protection8PENANAfBprGwNYsn

"She's here!"  Jeremy screamed.  "Drive!!!"  copyright protection8PENANA9vTjFVflp9

The ignition was already on, and the car was in first gear, so stepped on the gas and we lurched forward.  copyright protection8PENANAPMhOlMKlW2

"Told you that you could do it," Jeremy congratulated.  Suddenly, the engine started groaning all weird, like it was broken.  copyright protection8PENANAHcD7DkDri5

"What's that?" I asked.  copyright protection8PENANAOrAILfD0A3

"Um, I think you're revving the engine," Jeremy said.  "You've got to change gear."  copyright protection8PENANAaqPrebeYwb

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 protection8PENANA1dnFk1ZXsi

"What'd you do!" Jeremy demanded.  copyright protection8PENANA2hKDZvSDwt

"I don't know," I admitted.  "I think the car stalled.  copyright protection8PENANAGHUw99Hn7e

"Darn," Jeremy said.  "Let's—"copyright protection8PENANAy9rVOMWNKp

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 protection8PENANA5NHQqHljkS

"Get over here!" the crazy lady screamed.  I opened my door and shot out of the car.  copyright protection8PENANAN1zHyIQg5Y

"AH! Run, get out!" Jeremy screamed.  He lept over the center console and ran after me.  copyright protection8PENANAuE7WAWJxJt

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 protection8PENANAWPgEFHl10G

"Um, is that smoke coming from the hood," Jeremy asked.  copyright protection8PENANATOHsvgamwg

"Maybe…" I responded.  I abruptly noticed I hadn't had my seatbelt on.  "Wait, do you have your seatbelt on?"  copyright protection8PENANAl0UtXupG18

Jeremy only had time to say, "You're going to ask me that now!" before I drove the car into a ditch.  copyright protection8PENANA9YYqCD7XF8

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 protection8PENANAEyWl0sBbP8

"What was that?" Jeremy rightly asked.  "Did we just crash again?"  copyright protection8PENANAra9mE6R3NT

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 protection8PENANAcWRanuOvst

"I dunno, David, but we gotta get out of here," Jeremy sputtered.  "There's a snake crawling through the windshield."  copyright protection8PENANAD61As233eS

"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 protection8PENANAcG3l2HrUKe

"Get over here!" a scream echoed in the distance.  copyright protection8PENANANWbE7z9V4B

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 protection8PENANApIHriatmeI

"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 protection8PENANAeqohLrZclJ

I wove through the line of stopped cars, trying not to crash.  copyright protection8PENANAr8GCNNbXJg

"Woah," Jeremy said as I touched the Mini next to us.  "Try not to hit everything, please."  copyright protection8PENANAy8Ygzhq3DE

"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 protection8PENANALS499QB92W

"Take that exit.  NOW!" Jeremy screamed.  I cut three lanes and drove onto the ramp, nearly missing it.  copyright protection8PENANASt5z6TniQ6

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 protection8PENANAyofxFPO6Sr

"Alright, time to find out what in the world's going on," Jeremy said, hopping out of the car.  copyright protection8PENANALEjQOtGpDJ

"Yessiree," I responded.  I followed Jeremy to the front door, which was suspiciously hanging ajar.  Sounds of baseball rang from the inside.  copyright protection8PENANAlwdr5jksCa

"Come on, let's get it over with," I say, tugging at the door and pushing Jeremy into his own house.  copyright protection8PENANAzazPHfEwmx
