Keep on Truckin’

By Scott L Vannatter – 149 words

“He certainly had quite an attitude.”

At least, that was my thought when I saw the truck with the monster’s face. It was rather ghastly and ran prickles on my arms and neck, reminding me of Stephen King’s book about cars coming to life.

I knew that one was fiction and so was my thinking here. I laughed a bit thinking how absurd it sounded to be considering how to react to a truck with sharp teeth coming after you with no driver. Actually, why would he even come after me? It was all so unbelievable I did laugh out loud…just a little.

I turned at the noise behind me, not a scream, but not quite a machine sound either. Chuck had been working on the truck and I saw half of his body lying in front of the vehicle. The other half was sticking out from the truck’s…mouth?

A revved engine had me running…
