Stranger in the Night
Marianne Redding pulled her 87’ Dodge Shadow into a covered parking space. She turned the rickety engine off and carefully pushed the door open, trying to keep the rusted hinges from creaking too loudly. The top light flickered on. She glanced at the back seat to check on her three-year-old son Evan. He slept soundly in his car seat, surrounded by bags and boxes. She looked at her watch. It was eleven. Marianne got out of the car letting loose a heavy sigh. It had been a very long night.
