Are you sure you haven't seen any hitchhikers in town?
Resting for the night
In Close Corners with the Mysterious figure
After seeing the hitchhiker more than one time, I was truly frightened. When I stopped at the gas station, I asked the mechanic if he had seen any hitchhikers in town. When he said no, that scared me even more.
Regardless of if there were hitchhikers or not, I tried to forget about it by getting a good night's sleep. Little did I know that I would see the mysterious man again.
While I was driving peacefully on a sunshiny afternoon, unexpectedly, the road ended in a detour, and turned dark. In front of the detour sign was the very mysterious figure that I have been seeing constantly. He asked me if I was going to California, but I said New York instead. When I got back on the road, I found myself actually longing to see him.
