Day 81, Chapter 81
Sarah makes it to the Whole Foods parking lot where she has parked her car – which is locked, with her wallet inside – wearing no shoes, black pants (I think), and a neon green t-shirt. She looks super hot. A car slowly creeps up behind her as she walks into the parking lot. Hilarity ensues:
Half out of her mind with fear, Sarah fought her compulsion to turn toward the car. Panic would show on her face. And if it was the cops and they stopped to question her – she was cooked.
Who was it? Who was trailing her?
A horn blared and then tires squealed as the vehicle behind her peeled out and flew past, an old silver SUV with a jerk hollering out the window, “Sweet ass, baby!”
She goes inside the Whole Foods to ask to use a phone and is momentarily dismissed by the clerk until her recognizes her as his former teacher. After assessing her state – no shoes and a “bleeding gash on her shin” that I was unaware of but is apparently visible through her pants – clerk Mark Ogrodnick loans her his cell phone so she can call for help. She calls Heidi, but she can’t come get her because her husband, Pete the Lipstick Killer, isn’t home (presumably he’s out killing people) and she can’t leave the kids alone, for fear he might come home & find her gone. So Sarah hangs up, sucks it up, and calls her fat, loser husband Trevor to come get her.
Thus ends the 81st chapter of this piece of shit novel. Sigh.
