The car was a wheeless ruin in the desert night, a tiny little thing swallowed by the starry sky.
Black paint faded and eaten through with rust, it’s mighty engine silent and dry, powerless.

She smiled. She’d be Eden by morning, with Eve Mother, and all the light and wonders that had abandoned her.
By morning this would all be over, and no one would ever hurt again.
