Next, they are driving. Terry is driving. Terry thinks Terry is driving. Ha! Up the slippery slope. Haha! The car seems really loud, but so do the trees. They bounce, wheels spinning. Thundering, they jump rut to rut up the incline, then in a last gasp, like a stepped on bar of soap, are birthed onto the blacktop.

They are back on the road, and the car is insanely fucking loud now, but Terry is trying to figure out how to control the sociopathic metal ghost, buzzing through the night. “I must be doing ninety, only I can't read the speeedo-meter.” Thinks Terry. Rico says "Jesus - speed up man, you're doing fifteen fucking miles an hour. We’re gonna get fucking busted.” Terry doesn’t know if he should believe the lying conniving bastard, his buzzing best friend or not.
