The woman in the darkest road

fiction story of Sarah trapped in the wreckage

By Emmanuel AndrewPublished 8 months ago 3 min read

Once upon a time, there was a woman named Sarah who was driving home from a long day at work. She was exhausted and just wanted to get home to her family. As she was driving down the highway, she started to feel drowsy and couldn't keep her eyes open. She knew she needed to pull over and take a break, but before she could, she dozed off at the wheel.

The next thing she knew, she woke up in a twisted, mangled mess of metal. She was in a car accident, and her car was completely destroyed. She tried to move, but she was trapped in the wreckage, and she couldn't feel anything from the waist down.

Panic set in as she realized she was dying. The last thoughts that went through her mind were of her family and how she would never see them again. She tried to call out for help, but her voice was weak and no one could hear her.

As the darkness slowly consumed her, she could hear the sound of sirens in the distance, but they were too late. She took her last breath and passed away, alone on the side of the highway.

Days went by, and the investigation into the accident revealed that Sarah had died instantly upon impact. Her family was devastated, and they couldn't understand why such a terrible thing had happened to her.

Years went by, and the highway was still in use, but strange things started to happen. People would report seeing a ghostly figure in the distance, and some even claimed that they had seen Sarah's ghostly apparition in the wreckage of her car.

No one knows for sure what really happened that fateful night, but some say that Sarah's spirit is still trapped on the highway, reliving her last moments over and over again. To this day, drivers on that stretch of road still report feeling a cold chill run down their spine, and some even refuse to drive it at night, out of fear that they might encounter Sarah's ghostly presence.

As the rumors of Sarah's ghostly apparition spread, the highway became known as "The Ghost Road." People would dare each other to drive down the road at night, and those who did reported feeling a strange, eerie presence in the car with them.

Despite the rumors, many people still had to travel down the road for work or other necessities. One day, a young couple was driving down the Ghost Road when their car suddenly shut off. They tried to start it, but it wouldn't budge.

As they were trying to figure out what was wrong, they suddenly heard a faint knocking on their window. They turned to see a woman standing outside, her face pale and her eyes sunken. It was Sarah, and she was trying to warn the couple of the danger ahead.

The couple was too scared to move, and they sat there frozen in fear as Sarah's ghostly apparition slowly faded away. When they finally mustered up the courage to look ahead, they saw a huge tree branch blocking the road. If they had continued driving, they would have crashed into it and died just like Sarah did.

From that day on, the couple was convinced that Sarah's ghost was looking out for them and had saved their lives. They spread the word of their experience, and many people started to believe that Sarah's spirit was still present on the Ghost Road, helping those who were in danger.

To this day, drivers on the Ghost Road still report seeing Sarah's ghostly apparition and feeling her presence, reminding them to always be cautious on the road and to never drive when they're feeling drowsy.
