The Red Convertible
By aeske, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
"We were walking down Portage anyway, seeing the sights, when we saw it. There it was, parked, large as alive. Really if it was alive... That car reposed, calm and gleaming, a FOR SALE sigh in its left window. Then before we had thought it all over, the car belonged to us and our pockets empty."
We will take the red convertible, please!!
It is all yours
"Anyways, it was where we met the girl. All her hair was in buns round her ears, that's the first thing I saw. She was alongside the road with her arm out so we stopped. That girl was short, so short her lumbershirt looked comical on her, like a nightgown. She had jeans on and fancy moccasins and she carried a little suticase"
"Hop on in. We'll take you home. Where do you live?"
" Chicken, Alaska"
"We'd made most of the trip, that summer, without putting up the car hood at all. We got home just in time, it turned out, for the Army to remember Stephan had signed up to join it."
"One night Stephan was off somewhere. I too myself a hammer. I went out to that car and I did a number on its underside. Wacked it up. Bent that tailpipe double. ripped the muffler loose. By the time I was done with the car it looked worse than any typical Indian car that has been driven..."
"We made ourselves a fire, and we sat down and watched the current go. As I watched it, I felt something squeezing inside me and tightening and trying to let go all at the same time... I knew I was feeling what Stephan was going through at the moment."
"Then he's gone"
"Got to cool me off" he shouts all of a sudden. Then he runs over to the river and jumps in. "My boots are filling"
"I put it in first gear and then I take my foot off the clutch. I get out, close the door, and watch it plow softly into the water. "
