August Writing Challenges : Day 17 - What Happens Next?

August. The summer is nearly over. Kids are going back to school. You now have some time on your hands.  Okay, you still have a list of chores a mile long, but let's put writing at the top of the priority list, okay?

I am going to challenge you with a writing prompt every day this month. Are you up for it? I hope so.

The writing challenges will be about a variety of topics and hopefully cause you to dig into your writing toolbox to complete with emotional skill.

Watch out, I just might throw in a fun one, well, just for fun!

For the seventeenth challenge we're going to find out what happens next...

Here is your challenge:
You are driving home in blinding rain from a hiking trip in a southern region of Texas. It's very late, and there is no one for miles on the dark country road. Suddenly your car dips into a very deep puddle, stalls, and then stops. You have no way of calling anyone. After a while, you see headlights approaching. An old pickup pulls up right behind you and stops. 

But, no one gets out. 

What happens next?

I give you full rein to have as much fun with this as you want. Aliens, body snatchers, invisible creatures, whatever your imagination can dream up. Just be as detailed as possible using all your senses.
