The Hitchhiker (Ch.7)

Tony and I drove a few miles
without speaking.
The rain had stopped.
It was around 3:00 am.
I should have been home
a long time ago.
I thought about calling
my babysitter.
I stopped on the
side of the highway.

Tony: "Is everything alright?"

Cynthia: "I have to call my babysitter."

Tony: "You have kids?"

Cynthia: "Yes, I have three
beautiful children."

Tony: "Aren't you afraid you
are going to wake them?"

Cynthia: "My house is fairly big,
they wouldn't be able to
hear the phone."

I rummaged through my purse
looking for the cell phone.

Cynthia: "Damn it, it's not here."

Tony: "I have a phone you can use."

Cynthia: "I don't mean to be a bother."

Tony: "It's ok, I know

you're worried."

Cynthia: "Thanks."

Tony: "No problem."

Phone rings at the house.

The babysitter is laying
on the couch half asleep.

She picks up the phone.

Babysitter: "Hello?"

Cynthia: "It's just me."

Babysitter: "Where are you?"

Cynthia: "I left the party a little late,
I'm on my home."

Babysitter: "I was worried something might
have happened to you."

Cynthia: "No, I'm okay."

Babysitter: "Everything is okay here."

Cynthia: "I'll be home shortly."

Babysitter: "Okay."

Cynthia: "Bye."

Babysitter: "Bye."

The babysitter hangs up the
phone and dozes off to sleep.

Now what is going to happen to keep you away from the children. I just have a feeling that something will.
