Sample text

The Jeep was still drivable and the following day we took the Beast back to the car lot where Dana had purchased it. I told the owner of the car lot that he needed to take care of all the problems with the car or return Dana’s money. The owner told us to leave the Jeep and he would see that the problems were addressed. The dealer never repaired anything on the jeep and then refused to return Dana’s money. Dana ended up with no car and no two thousand dollars, which he had used for the down payment on the jeep, and he still had the bank loan on the car.

No phone call, no notice just rang my doorbell one night and said hi, I’m moving out here. They moved in with us until her boyfriend found a job and they were able to get their own place. At least by the time my sister joined us I had bought a five-bedroom house. With all the company and family staying with us, we needed the five bedrooms. Living in Las Vegas people were always coming out to visit for a week or two, not that I minded. It was always nice to have a house full of people. In the summer when school let out, Dana and Kelly would go back East.

When it started getting dark, he walked back to the car thinking that maybe they hiked out another way. As I am listening to his story, I could not believe Dana was in the desert somewhere lost and it was now dark. I left work and drove out toward Boulder Dam. Just as you pass a small casino before the dam, you have to drive off the road down a steep hill into the desert. If you have never been in the desert at night, let me tell you it is so black out there, you can’t see two feet in front of you, and it is creepy.
