EXCERPT:

The truck is old, its cab rounded in a way vehicles just aren’t constructed anymore. Its paint might once have been white, but so much of it has fallen off, all she can see is the rust underneath. A long truck bed stretches out from behind the cab. The sides are wood. It looks like it’s been put together from whatever parts could be found at the scrap yard. It can’t be roadworthy, it can’t be legal.
Nonetheless it’s lumbering down her street, slowing as it passes her house. She darts away from the window, pressing herself against the wall beside it. If she looks sideways she can still track its passage through the sheer curtains.
The old vehicle slows more. Its brakes shriek with the effort. Whatever’s in the bed of the truck bounces beneath an old piece of canvas…
