BlackTea - a short story

1. Lo, behold ‘cause I do not fear thy red carriage
with devil’s speed and deathly gear
be he far, or be he near.
- Sir Rufus Bleckty, 1607: “Charon” Act III/ Scene 2

2. “It was remarkable how Dean could go mad and then suddenly continue with his soul - which I think is wrapped up in a fast car, a coast to reach, and a woman at the end of the road.”
- Jack Kerouac, On the Road, 1957 (p. 209 in Penguin Modern Classics)

The nameless protagonist drives with his white car through the empty streets of the 60s. He is sweating for it is a sunny and hot day in an unknown village. Suddenly another car appears behind him and starts following him without an apparant reason.
A dangerous race develops.
But actually our protagonist does not have time for this...he has to take care of another business. There is a dark secret hidden...somewhere.
