I flick my hand up and set my right turn signal on as I exit off of the main road and onto the interstate.

I blink, then shake my head at myself and flick it back off as I see that there are absolutely no cars on the interstate, or on the main road.

I forget sometimes that around here, only a select few are still driving around at the "dead hours" of the night.

I'm heading home from the little shop I work at, which is only a couple of townships and about 20 minutes away from where I live.

I've been working a bit too late to get my overtime hours in lately so I can scrape up a little more cash,

but it doesn't really matter that I have been getting back so late because I live close enough anyway.

As I merge onto the abandoned interstate, I squint as I plunge into a dense fog that covers me on all sides.

Remembering what to do from my driver's manual (miraculously) I flick off my brights and slow down a little so I don't hit anything too hard that I can't see in time.

A vision of a deer running across the road in front of me flashes through my mind, and I feel a little dread creep up on me from it.

I just got this car, and I really don't want to have to repair the damage with the money I have been desperately trying to save up.

I also remember to turn my emergency blinkers on just in case some idiot comes flying up on my ass per usual, then turn my focus back onto the road.
