It was raining as Liz drove home one night. She was coming back from visiting her parents. She was ready to turn in for the night. She would relax with a nice book after a warm bath.
As Liz drove along, she spotted someone walking with their thumb out. She grinned, thinking that maybe the night wouldn't be so relaxing after all but definitely more fun.
She pulled over to the side of the road and stuck her head out. "Hey! Looking for a ride?"
A woman turned and grinned. She nodded quickly before running to Liz's truck.
"Thank you," she laughed as she climbed into the truck. She was soaking wet and looked like she was moments away from freezing to death. She shook out her hair as she settled in the seat.
She pulled her hair back before turning to look at her. "I'm Annie."
"Annie," Liz said with a slight nod. "I'm Liz. Where are you heading?" She looked her over quickly. She looked like she would be an easy kill. Quick shot to the head and dump the body.
"As far as you can take me north," Annie told her. She studied Liz, biting her lip. She could easily kill her. All she had to do was wait for the right time.
Liz nodded as she started driving again. She turned up the radio, glancing at her new companion.
"Don't you know it's dangerous to walk around at night on roads like this?" she said, leaning her elbow against the door. "Not only is it raining but there are psychos out there."
Annie grinned. "I'm not worried about them," she assured her.
"Well you should be," she told her. She froze when she came eye to eye with a gun.
"You shouldn't be picking people up off the side of the road," Annie smirked. "Pull over."
Liz started laughing quietly before it turned into a full belly laugh. "This is rich," she murmured.
Annie frowned. "Why are you laughing? I'm going to kill you."
Liz shook her head and reached for the gun under the seat before quickly taking it out. "I'm laughing because I picked you up to kill you."
Annie looked at the gun before looking at her. She couldn't stop from laughing either and slapped her hand against her knee. "Wow, such a small world huh," she hummed.
"Who would have thought two people who do this often would meet."
Liz laughed as well. "You're right, it's weird," she laughed quietly. She looked at her, grinning from ear to ear before pulling the trigger.
Annie's head flew back and hit the window which was covered in blood.
Liz pulled the truck over to the side of the road and got out. She went around to the other side and pulled open the door. She pulled Annie's body out and easily tossed it over the guardrail.
She got back into her truck and started to drive away. She wondered if hitchhikers would ever learn.
On her way home she thought about what she was going to do. Her plans didn't change much, instead of a bath she would take a shower. It would be an easy night in.
