Oh no, not again! she thought, feeling the boy who she loved like her own child that she’d never had start to slump behind her wheel. He had driven too long tonight, gone too far, and, as always, endured too much. His eyes were starting to slip closed despite the rock and roll music he kept pumping out of her stereo system.
That’s all right, Dean. I’ve got you. His eyes closed; his hands relaxed on her wheel. His brother was already fast asleep, his snores having punctuated the rock ballads for the last three miles. Baby drove smoothly and quietly for the rest of the night.
By morning’s dawning light, she pulled over into a parking lot and shifted her own self into park. They were all still sitting there when Dean’s eyes finally cracked open again. He looked blearily around him but, as always, didn’t question how they’d made it there. Instead he reached over and poked at his brother, interrupting his bearlike snores. “Hey, Sammy. Come on. We’re here.”
Baby watched as her boys climbed out and stumbled toward the hotel. They fell asleep with the door open, still under her protective gaze.
