"The woman 2" by dmt1967

Joe sighed as his engine died. He should have walked away, said no to this jalopy, told Anthia he still loved her...

He opened the door and slid out of the old battered range rover the car hire place gave him. His feet crunched on the snow as he peered around for some sort of life. Out of the corner of his eye he spotted her. She lay on the road: perfectly still. Jesus, is she dead? Did I run over her? He shook his head and ceased his brow. No, I would have felt it, wouldn’t I?

Joe ran over to the girl and bent down. “Miss,” he whispered in her ear. “Are you all right?”

Her eyes fluttered open and she smiled.

Joe scratched his head and gazed around. Where did she come from? I didn’t pass any cars and I am sure no car overtook me. He spotted her white dress. And why is she wearing a wedding dress?

He reached out and touched her hand. It felt cold in his grip. Are you lost? Do you want me to call someone?"

She shook her head and sat up.

“Take it easy, honey. You’ve just had an accident.”

She took his arm and he helped her to stand.

“I would give you a lift, but my car’s broken down.”

She laughed, turned and beckoned him to follow her.

He felt his mind go fuzzy and took a step towards her.

They both turned to see a light. It blinded Joe but his mind cleared. “Wait here. I think I can hear a car.”

Sure enough, a car appeared out of the dark and stopped beside him. A man in his late forties stuck his head out of the window. “You need help, fella.”

Joe nodded. “I’VE BROKEN DOWN AND THIS LADY IS STUCK AS WELL,” he shouted over the wind.

The man scratched his ear. “What lady?”

Joe looked around but the lady was nowhere to be seen.

The man unlocked the door and Joe jumped in.

“She was here a moment ago. I wonder where she is?”

The man turned around in the seat. “I’m Jed. I remember passing through town and the local encyclopedia told me of a woman killed on her wedding day by her husband. She wears her wedding dress and waylays lonely motorists. She beckons them to follow her and takes them near the cliff over there.”

He pointed his finger and Joe saw the outline of the edge.

“She hypnotises them and they follow her over it.”

A cold shiver ran down Joe’s spine.

The man started the car and pulled away.

Joe heard a howl behind him, turned and saw the woman in the mirror. In his head he heard the words, until we meet again.
