The Chariot

The Chariot
Direction, control, willpower

The man approaches the side of the road.  He stops at the metal barrier separating the woods from the busy highway.  The section of road that he’s near is on a curve, and with the heavy forest the oncoming cars can’t see anything on this part of the street until they’re right on top of it.

He looks back at the woman standing just inside the trees.  He silently begs her stop making him do this.

She shakes her head.  Tears streaming from his eyes, he steps out onto the road as he hears the truck coming around the curve.
