Her boots crunched on the gravel drive and for a moment, she regretted not changing out of her heels. The hinge on her car door squeaked when she opened it, but the noise was not nearly as loud as the engine roaring to life in the quiet night. She’d really grown accustomed to Sean’s silent, luxurious car over the past few days.

Late on a Sunday evening, traffic was light, and it took less than fifteen minutes to reach her destination. There were no streetlights, just a few lamp posts lining the narrow, twisting road. Naked tree branches reached for the cloudless sky and she shivered despite in the roaring heat in her car. 

Even her brakes squeaked, she noticed as she stopped the car, not even bothering to pull off the deserted road. She wished she’d brought a flashlight, although there was sufficient moonlight to find her destination, a place she’d visited hundreds of times over the past year.
