Sample text

Laurie was a good twenty yards ahead of the lead vehicle and Makenzie didn‟t need anything more to worry about. This was a bad stretch of road, the turn and the trees blocking line of sight, and the winter just made it meaner. Makenzie was a cautious driver though and he‟d pulled them up in good time as soon as they‟d seen the half-buried car. Then Laurie‟s keen eyes had noticed it was just the tail vehicle in a frozen convoy. „This one‟s off the road! ‟ „Take it slow, Laurie! ‟ He‟d told her to run on, get a count of the vehicles and check further along the road.

When had it been this bad? He couldn‟t remember. Probably never. Never this dead. And that was the real funny part: ordinarily the town lived the whole year round. Summer or winter, everybody flocking to the lake like geese, to fish, swim, sail - sunbathe even - or to head for the hills and climb, trek, ski, get lost. But the truth was, with all those folks passing through week after week, Makenzie‟s town was never left to just be. She was doing all her living for everybody else. Between seasons there was even the motorcycle festival around Winnipesaukee; brought a horde of bikers through - like a Biblical plague, Hal Byers said every year.

He aimed the gun this way and that, searching along its sights. Nothing. Nothing he could see. „Who‟s there? ‟ For a while there was no answer, but Leela was used to the Doctor‟s ponderous silences. „They could have, but I doubt it. ‟ Leela felt warmer, pressed close to the ground, her breathing almost painful after their uphill march. The Doctor was very like the hero in the elders‟ tale sometimes, charging on and ignoring the protests of his loyal warriors. „Like us,‟ she reminded him. They were huddled down at the edge of some silver-white trees.
