Only bought the car a few months before
after passing the driving test
it was her first time she was so thrilled
with her friend one evening
as it was nice to have her independence
this moment was immense!
Nervous at excited they headed to a grill
the roads were quiet
with this was happy about driving slow
the radio on chatting
came to a narrow lane that was tree-lined
a little creepy but did not mind!
Put on her headlights as it was rather dark
checked rear view mirror
nobody was behind no hurry not far to go
both chilled started to sing
through her rearview mirror a van to near
from where did that appear?
Slowed down but stayed to close for comfort
pulled over to the verge
hitting a small tree stump as the van went by
stalling as she hit her head
the vehicle just disappeared into the distance
they sat shaken and tense!
Started the engine felt once more composed
nothing was now insight
drove on down the road but came to a stop
it narrowed to a small track
could go no farther posts their way blocked
they were rather shocked!
What happened to the van that had gone by
it never came back
darkness had fallen and they were scared
turning around found
a faded sign that read it was a deadend road
their imaginations in overload!
They saw a nice pub and decided they needed
to regain their serenity
once more so bought a drink and had a meal
there spoke to the locals
who were interested said others had seen it to
no hallucination it was true!
They left perturbed never to go that way again!
