“I’m so tired we’ve been driving for hours,” Luc muttered to Felicia.
“Well there’s a motel up ahead. No nevermind. We’re not staying here honey.”
Luc yawned. “I can’t drive anymore tonight. It’s 12:30 a.m.”
“This motel has dusty rooms crawling with roaches and resembles the Bate’s Motel.”
“It’ll be fine you’ll see.” Luc said. He parked the car infront of Reception and came back with a key card. He showed Felicia the key card.
“I’ll sleep in the damn car. If you’re still alive in the morning I’ll come in and shower.”
“If you’re sure,” Luc said. “Want to see it first?” Felicia remained mute.
Luc opened room 62 which was surprisingly clean and modern. The beds and linens were new and the bathroom had been renovated.
He thought about getting Felicia but Luc was also fond of stretching out in a bed to himself.
It was 8:00 am when Luc received a knock on his room door. “Sir are you Luc Rareson?” A grisly state trooper asked.
“Yes,” Luc said tentivily.
“Is this your car?” The trooper pointed to a black SUV, half covered up.
“Yes, my girlfriend was sleeping in there. She refused to sleep in the room.”Luc said ashen.
“What’s your girlfriend’s name Mr. Rareson?”
“Felicia Mayer, where is she? What happened to her?”
“I’m sorry to tell you this sir but Felicia Mayer was murdered in your car last night.” The trooper said gently.
Tears leaked out Luc’s eyes.”I should’ve made her stay inside the room. I should’ve insisted.”
“We have the individual who murdered Felicia in custody. He won’t tell us his real name. He was wearing an old goalie mask from hockey and says his name is Jason Voorhees.”
“Are you kidding me?” Luc sobbed.
“No,” the state trooper said.”Ironically enough, today is Friday May 13.”
