Shannon insisted on driving herself to the cottage. She wanted to keep a low profile, and turning up in the back of a shiny Mercedes wasn’t going to help her stay off the radar for very long. Besides, she was still a country girl at heart and got embarrassed by the big shows of wealth and glamour.
She’d picked up a little hatchback car at the airport, dumped one suitcase in the back, and been on her way. She was feeling better already, as if the last year faded away the more miles she put between herself and LA. She hadn’t bought more than she needed, and it was so refreshing to have a small amount of luggage and not be weighed down by so many things she didn’t need.
Shannon didn’t know how long she planned to stay in Sussex; she guessed that might depend on Jay.
I really think you might have lost it, Shannon. Seriously, my friend. Flying all the way over here because you can’t forget about a woman you fucked ten years ago. She won’t even remember you. Shannon brutally crushed the voice in her head, the one that sounded an awful lot like Corin, and Corin was someone she really didn’t want to think about.
Shannon leaned forward and fiddled with the radio. She found a station that played old rock tunes—anything would do to drown out the voice. Singing along, she felt herself start to relax.
Sometime later, with the sun setting fast behind the fields, the road began to narrow, and the heavens opened.
“Great,” she mumbled as she fumbled for the wipers and turned them on full.
She slowed the car and tried to concentrate on the road as darkness fell quickly. She’d forgotten how fast that happened in the country where there weren’t any buildings or street lights.
As she navigated around yet another sharp bend, she misjudged the turn. The little car bumped across an uneven grass verge and Shannon hit the brakes. She knew her reaction time was too slow and could only curse as she ploughed straight into a ditch.
“Fuck!” she cried and banged the steering wheel. She fumbled in her bag, looking for her cell. She turned on the interior light and saw she had no service.
“Double fuck!” Now what? She couldn’t get out in this weather; she’d be soaked through in a second. She decided to wait until it stopped—if it ever stopped—and then she’d get out and walk. This was the UK. There would be a house or something somewhere close by. The place wasn’t that big.
Jay turned on the narrow lane as the rain lashed against her windscreen. She squinted and thought she saw something in the distance, a dark shape with lights. Headlights. Probably a car gone into a ditch.
It wasn’t an unusual sight around here. And it wouldn’t be the first time Jay had had to tow somebody to the local garage. Tourists went out for a drive on roads they weren’t used to, with sharp bends and narrow lanes. It got dark quickly, and with no streetlights a person could easily find themselves in a ditch. She hoped the occupants weren’t hurt.
She pulled up behind the little car and left her own lights and the hazards on, so any other cars on the road could see her. Though it wasn’t likely there would be any other vehicles out at this time.
Jay pulled on her heavy wax jacket and climbed down from the Jeep.
Shannon let out a scream when someone banged hard on her window. Looks like the fucking Grim Reaper with that hood. She shoved open the door and almost smashed it into the stranger.
“What the fuck!” she shouted, unmindful of the rain that pelted her. The stranger stepped back, hands out in a placating gesture.
“I saw your car in the ditch. I didn’t mean to scare you.”
Although muffled by the hood, something about that voice was familiar. “I drove it into the ditch. This weather sucks,” Shannon said to the stranger as her heart returned to a steady beat.
“Are you hurt?” the stranger asked.
Shannon could hear kind concern in the voice and began to calm down at once. “No, I’m fine. Not so sure about the car though.”
“You’re getting soaked. Wait in the Jeep. I’ll tow you out,” the stranger said, and began walking back to her vehicle.
Shannon followed and climbed into the passenger seat, now feeling the cold. The stranger leaned in through the driver’s side, started the engine, and turned the heat up to full blast. “I won’t be long.”
Shannon watched as the tall form got a rope from the truck and walked back to her car.
With quick efficiency, she attached the rope to both vehicles and then got back in the truck. When she pushed her hood down, Shannon’s breath caught in her throat. She worked her mouth, but no sound came out. Jay.
