A Writer’s Book of Days Exercise: Night

Outside the city, the only light is the moon. At least it is until the cars start following. There’s roads enough in the outskirts to keep them from stalling out, and they could circle Arkadi for weeks without running out of juice. Even in the darkness, there’s no way she could hide for even one.

She thought of the Winson stilling back at the Regency Arms with its solid wheels, and wished she hadn’t trusted Carter’s word on this run. A squeeker, whatever. The pick-up had been bugged.
