Ruthie On The Road, Update

"I can only drive you to the County Line," he said and never told me why.

After about twenty-minutes or so, that Kansas State Trooper dropped me off on a dark ramp in a very isolated area.

Cold rain was coming down in sheets when he drove off and left me there.

I looked around and noticed a motel at the bottom of the hill and a truck fueling station on the other side of the overpass.

Before I decided which way to go, a big truck came roaring across the overpass and almost hit me.

"Whoa!" I said and jumped out of the way.

A minute later, a young woman with a little boy in a car, spotted me and turned around and stopped.

"Do you need help?!" she shouted out the window.

"Yeah!" I answered and sloshed through the puddles to her car.
