The Hitchhiker II

Extracts from this document...


The Hitchhiker II As Sarah turned off the motorway onto the road to Witney, the small village in which she lived, it was four o'clock in the afternoon, but already the sun was falling behind the hills. At this time in December, it would be completely dark by five o'clock. Sarah shivered. It was another ten miles to the cottage where she lived with her husband Bobby, and the gloomy light and windy weather made her feel a little lonely. She would have liked to listen to the radio, but it had been stolen from her car when it was parked outside her office in London about two weeks ago, and she hadn't had time to replace it yet.
