“We can chase him,” Annie said. “The key‟s in the ignition.” Then she saw that Harold had left them a message, tucked under the windshield wiper. Jeremy retrieved it from the rain, and handed it to Annie, who read aloud:

“I reckon y‟all three have a journey to make. Long distances may not be at stake, but the van sleeps three with real ease. So take it please. Besides, I‟m done touring for a while and an old man‟s car suits my new style. Meet me here in just one year -- in this same lane -

  • -

    and if you want we‟ll trade again.”

“He‟s signed it „Love Harold‟. And there‟s a postscript with his phone number.”
