All the things my dad told me about keeping myself safe go right out of my
head when I see the three men.
Holy crap! is my first thought.
They’re dead men walking under the heat of the Nevada sun in August on
a deserted road, in the middle of the desert, no shirts, no shoes. I don’t
immediately realize what they’re about until I’m almost on them and see the
shape they’re in – beat up, bloody, one is being supported by the other two,
practically dragged as the three men stagger down the road.
I rip by them in my new-to-me 2011 Mercedes SUV and then brake hard
and skid to a stop a couple of hundred yards past. I flip into reverse and twist
my body as I gun the gas, keeping my eyes on the road behind as I haul ass
Nothing’s in my thoughts but picking up these guys who’ll die if I don’t
help them. I don’t ask myself what they’re doing out in the middle of
nowhere. Don’t think about why they’re half-naked. Don’t think of any of the
dangerous possibilities. Nope. Once I’m within 20 feet of them, I throw the
car in park, flip open the door and jump from the vehicle, racing back to the
men who are staggering towards me.
“Oh, my fucking god,” I shriek as I wrap my hands around the waist of
one of the men and help him support the guy they’re dragging. “Are you guys
okay? What happened? It’s okay. I’m here now. Thank god I was on this
road.” I know I’m babbling, not really making a ton of sense. The adrenalin is
making me stupid. They’re not really talking at all, but they don’t refuse my
Of course, they don’t.
When we reach my car, I yank open the back door and hold it as they load
their barely conscious buddy inside, who’s huge. I mean he’s got to be at
least 6’6” tall and seriously bulked up. The second man, tall, tattoos and
piercings everywhere, dirty blond hair, and brown eyes, circles my car and
crawls into the other side.
As I slam the door shut, I turn to face the last man who’s still standing on
pavement so hot it has to be burning his bare feet.
“I’m driving,” he rasps as he tries to move me out of the way with his
hands to my arms. It’s a weak grip from an otherwise strong man if the holyhell biceps he has are any indication.
“Like hell you are.” I easily pull out of his grasp by taking a couple of
steps back. I look way up past his bruised and bloody bare chest to see his
dull brown eyes. Damn, the guy’s tall. I can’t really see his face through the
messy beard, the mass of bruises and an eye that’s swollen shut. “You can
barely stand. Get in the passenger seat so we can get out of here.”
I hold my ground as he hesitates, then he runs his fingers through his
shaggy blood-matted hair before stepping back and moving around the
vehicle, getting in the passenger side.
“Trigger, how’s Red doing?” he asks as he settles in. His eyes wash over
me when I climb into the driver’s seat and slam the door, turning the AC on
“Looks like a fuckin’ lobster, Rocky.”
