They finally made their escape. “I love Alaska!” crowed Ben. He counted the stolen bank money while Dan drove the stolen Range Rover. “They’re so low-tech here, and these fools don’t even lock their cars.”
Unknowingly, they’d stolen Sheriff Barker’s 2021 Range Rover (Security Edition).
They were amazed when the car suddenly locked itself. They were further shocked when it started driving itself. The car raced through some of the roughest terrain in the county. The men were hurled violently around the interior as they crashed across ravines and boulder fields. After two hours of mad careening the two collectively had sprained knees, twisted ankles, bruised ribs, a concussion, and a broken elbow.
At the Sheriff’s station, Sheriff Barker tapped his pad, directing the Range Rover where to drive itself next. Deputy Cullen said, “You get your Rover back yet, Sheriff?”
“Nope,” said Barker, switching to the Rover’s internal cameras. “I’m havin’ too much fun!”
I hope you had fun reading this. I had fun writing it. Every Monday, it’s time to finish the story with a photo and a first sentence as a prompt. This week the first sentence must be, “They finally made their escape.” The splash photo for this post is the image prompt.
