The Story: (Excerpt from "Ladies Start Your Engines that I'm working on with
A few minutes later Dave's sedan pulled in to the garage. “I got all the parts Steve!”
“Cool! One more thing off the to-do list.” Steve opened Dave's trunk and got out the box of parts it contained. “Ah, finally, those gaskets for the Barrister's wagon, we've been waiting on these!”
“Heh, I love working on that thing, it is so huge! There's so much space in the engine compartment, you can practically live in there!” Dave hefted another box out of his trunk.
“Oh, speaking about vehicles you love to work on...” Steve had a crooked grin splitting his muzzle.
“I think you're in trouble!”
Dave blinked. “What do you mean, did something go wrong?” His tail dropped to the ground.
“A certain little bunny hopped by before you got here. Apparently, a careless fox with a dart gun was not truly forthcoming with the total facts of the situation.”
Dave's ears went scarlet and collapsed to his head. “But I...”
“Oh, no need to explain to me,” Steve held up a paw. “But you should be prepared to see her sometime tomorrow!”
“Oh.” was all Dave could muster.
Sandelle stood by the side of the road, contemplating what she was about to do. She looked around herself. The road was deserted this early in the morning. “This is crazy!” She thought to herself. “Oh, well, I guess I should get moving now.”
As she entered her car, she heard the approach of another vehicle. She froze when she recognized Dave's blue sedan.
Dave yawned as he rode in to work. He'd had a hard night's sleep, and the early hour didn't help things at all. He rounded a bend and saw a car off in the distance idling beside he road. In a moment, he recognized Nurse Sandelle's convertible. Immediately, he pulled over to see what might be wrong.
A little nervous he got out of his car and walked up to her door. “Hello, Nurse Sandelle, Good morning!”
“Good morning, Dave, uh it is ok just to call me Sandy...” Her ears flushed and collapsed.
“Oh, ok, thanks! Is there something wrong?”
Sandy's mind raced. “Uh, I'm not sure, I think I thought I heard a funny sound.”
“Oh, really?” Dave cocked one ear over Sandy's hood. “She seems to be running fine, perhaps I could follow you in to the garage and we could look her over a little more thoroughly?”
“I would like that very much!” Sandy smiled.
Dave felt as though a huge weight had been lifted from his chest when he saw Sandy smiling at him.
“Uh, we can start when you're done leaning on my car?”
“Oh, uh, right, yeah, heh...” Dave scampered back to his car as Sandy started moving forward.
In a few minutes they were back at the garage. Steve greeted them, a large tub of popcorn held under his arm.
Dave exited his car here first. “Steve, you're here early! What on earth is that?”
Steve grinned from ear to ear “Oh, what can I say? Bachelor's breakfast! I see the good nurse is here as well, what a coincidence! Is there any problem?”
Dave shrugged. “I dunno, she said the car was making a funny noise, and wanted me to check her out.”
Steve found this to be very entertaining. “Well then by all means, check her out and see if she can make any funny noises!”
“Ok, uh I will...” Dave let fall one ear in confusion. He walked over to Sandy's car, and then he heard it, a steady hissing surrounded the small tan convertible.
Sandy saw Steve already there. At first she flushed a little in embarassment, but then she thought to herself, “No this is good, it will serve that nasty coyote right.”
Dave approached her in the car. “Sandy? I think I see the source of the noise?”
Sandy looked at Dave innocently. “Really? That was fast!”
Dave pointed down at her rear tires.
“Oh my!” Sandy looked, her car began to sink as the left rear tire deflated. She scooted to the other side, both right tires were softening and sagging as well. Sandy gave a sidewise glance at Steve, and looked straight at Dave. “Wow, it looks like all my tires have sprung a leak, except for the one that you fixed. Dave, could you patch me and pump me up?”
Dave blinked. Sandy's eyes were almost hypnotic, his head swam an his tongue felt thick in his mouth. Somewhere behind him, he thought he heard Steve choking on a piece of popcorn.
“Sandy, I would consider it an honor to perform this service for you!”
Sandy smiled brightly. “Thank you Dave, it is good to know that there are a few, good, honest, reliable men out there!”
Dave's ears flushed scarlet and colapsed to his head, but he wore a huge smile.
Steve nearly fell over choking on his popcorn.
