    Summary

    "Where’re you headed next?" Maggie asks.

    "Omaha for a drop-off," the girl says, "then Des Moines for a pickup. Not sure where after that, just hoping to stay on the road for awhile." She hands over a visa, and Maggie takes it to the till just a couple of feet away.

    Maggie cocks an eyebrow while she runs the card. "Where's home?"

    "National City. Well, the suburbs."

    Maggie whistles. "Long haul indeed."

    The girl shrugs. "I didn't take this job because I wanted to be home."

    Summary

    Alex’s skin is icy cold to the touch when Maggie wraps her arms around her. God knows how long she’s been standing there looking out into the city, eerily silent amidst the lockdown.

    “I couldn’t sleep.” Alex murmurs, an unnecessary apology in her voice.

    “I know.” Maggie drops a kiss to Alex’s shoulder, willing her own warmth to seep into the body in her arms. “Why didn’t you wake me?”

    “You’re exhausted, Mags. You deserve to rest.”

    “So do you.”

    Summary

    The car’s engine roars loudly as she presses down on the gas pedal. She can feel the car rumbling, its wheels turning. For a moment she thinks they’re starting to move forward but then the noise gets shriller, the car unmoving as the wheels spin, unable to find grip in the deep snow. She steps on the brake to avoid slithering off to the side and further into the deep snow and kills the engine. Alex curses under her breath resisting the urge to hit her steering wheel to vent her anger. They're stuck.
