The ghost car


Seamus, a university student, was walking along the side of the road hitchhiking on a very dark and stormy  night. The night was rolling on and no cars in sight, with very little visibility due to the heavy rain, Seamus kept on walking as best he could.

Suddenly, a car came into view and coming to a stop right next to him without a sound.  Seamus not thinking just opened the door and jumped in, glad to be out of the rain. As he shut the door and turned around, he was terrified to find there was no one at the wheel and the engine wasn't on.  The car started to move again and Seamus terrified out of his wits began to pray, begging for his life. Then just as the car approached a curve in the road up ahead he saw a hand come through the car window, but never touched him nor harm him, it just turned the steering wheel.

Even though Seamus was gripped by fear, he saw the pub lights up ahead, knowing he will be safe, gathering his strength, he quickly threw open the car door and  jumped from the car. Made a perfect roll and got to his feet quickly. He ran into the pub, shaking and hysterical as he told everyone what had just happened.

There was an eerie silence for a minute and then suddenly to door was flung open. In walked two men soaking wet, out of breath,  just like Seamus. Looking around the room one man turned to the other said Look Mick there's that flaming idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it!
