Rays from the sun beamed down onto the wide and open Texas fields. Beaming down like hot rays of lava onto the earth below.
It was only morning but that didn't matter to the weather it was always hot all day.
The sound of a motor could be heard piercing the Texas piece, like a knife cutting into the flesh of desolation.
It was the engine of a car.The entire thing glistened as the heat rays bounced off almost giving the impression the vehicle was shiny and brand new.
The immense Texas heat was only interrupted by the feeling of a breeze when the car sped up.
Debbie turned to Max for a minute.Blowing her bubble gum.
"Are you sure we are going the right way" she asked.
Max who at this moment in time was concentrating on trying to find a signal for his phone instead of driving.
He simply replied with a "Uh yea".
Debbie shuck her head and quickly snatched her boyfriends phone from his hand.
"Hey give that back! I almost had a signal then." He grunted this time more alert.
She waved the phone in her hand,then put her arm out of the window.
"Come and get it" she teased.
Keeping one hand on the wheel and using his other to reach across all his concentration was on the phone.
"Come on give it bac....."
Max was interrupted by a loud thud and a person suddenly rolled onto and off the windscreen.
"Oh god!,we actually hit someone" Debbie gasped.
Max unclipped his seat belt and got out of the car. He looked down at the person and ran his hand through his hair.
It was a man he was wearing scraggy jeans and an old jacket,he had a sleek black hair and looked to be in his early 30s or late 20s.
Debbie got out and knelt down near him.She checked if he was still breathing,he was.
"Come on lets get out of here,he is not dead" Max said in a worried tone.
Debbie glanced up at him
"Are you crazy or just callous? We cant just leave him hear he might be badly hurt. We gotta get him to a hospital just in case" She replied.
Max flung his arms up in the air and paced up and down.
"Do you see any damn hospitals around here? Or anything at all?"
The man began to move and groan.
"Uh w-what happened" He mumbled as he began to sit up.
Max looked at him then looked away.
"Um we hit you with our car,by accident,Its alright we will take you straight to the hospital" She asserted nervously.
The man shook his head and cracked his neck.
"Neh I will be just dandy,he stretch could ya pass me my rucksack" He asked pointing to a dusty old rucksack.
Max picked it up.And tossed it over to him. He opened one of the many compartments to it and took out a bottle of whisky.
He quickly unscrewed the lid and downed some.
"Ah much better,this stuff has some real healing power none of antibiotic crap just good ol Texas home remedy"
Quickly getting to his feet and grabbing his rucksack and his banjo.
"So where are you folks headed?" He questioned
Debbie and Max looked at each other.
"Just traveling state to state really" Max answered.
The stranger nodded.
"I wouldn't usually ask,but my leg feels real sore,could you give me a lift to my house"
The couple glanced over at each other again.
"Um well we don't usually pick up Hitchhikers" Max stated.
The stranger looked at them.
" I only live up a few miles up the road,and ya'll did just nearly run me over"
Max was about to speak.
"Okay sure" interrupted Debbie.
Debbie and Max got pack into the car this time though with another passenger.
