“I suddenly realized I was lost on the long dirt road, more lost than I’d ever been before,” wrote Ree. “The more twists and turns I took in my attempt to find my bearings, the worse my situation became. It was almost midnight, and it was cold, and each intersection looked like the same one repeating over and over.” Ree says she started to panic and have irrational ideas. She began excited about characters from horror motion pictures coming to get her.

As I drove, I remembered each horror film I’d ever watched that had taken place in a rural setting. Children of the Corn. The kids of the corn had been lurking on the market within the tall grass, I simply knew it. Friday the 13th. Sure, it had taken place at a summer season camp, however the identical factor may occur on a cattle ranch. And The Texas Chain Saw Massacre? Oh no. I used to be useless. Leatherface was coming—and even worse, his freaky, emaciated, misanthropic brother.

Ree determined to ask Ladd for assist

After driving round, Drummond determined to cease and provides Ladd a name. She says she was embarrassed to ask Ladd for assist so quickly after their date, however she didn’t have an alternative choice.

“I watched out for Leatherface while dialing Marlboro Man on my car phone,” wrote Ree. “I had no other option, short of continuing to drive aimlessly down one generic road after another or parking on the side of the road and going to sleep, which really wasn’t an option at all, considering Norman Bates was likely wandering around the area. With Ted Bundy. And Charles Manson. And Grendel.”

Ladd arrived in lower than 5 minutes and helped Ree discover her means

Ladd arrived rapidly and confirmed Ree the best way again house. The Accidental Country Girl says she was going to drive away in disgrace after Ladd gave her instructions, however he had different concepts. It looks as if getting misplaced wasn’t so unhealthy in spite of everything.

I noticed Marlboro Man strolling towards my automotive. Staring at his Wranglers, I rolled down my window once more so I may hear what he needed to say. He didn’t say something in any respect. He opened my automotive door, pulled me out of the automotive, and kissed me as I’d by no means been kissed earlier than.

And there we had been. Making out wildly on the intersection of a county highway and a rural freeway, mud particles within the air mixing with the glow of my headlights to create a cattle ranch model of London fog.
