Joseph pounded the wheel, glaring at the black screen on his phone.
The car cost a fortune, and it breaks down in the middle of nowhere!?
A man with matted hair limped towards the car from below the bridge.
He’s going to ask for money, he’s even carrying a cup!
The man knocked on Joseph’s window.
“Wanna cuppa coffee? I can fix your car.”
What choice do I have?
Setting down the steaming mug, the man bent over the engine.
“Try it now.”
The car started.
Maybe he’ll take some cash?
Before Joseph could retrieve his wallet, the man disappeared.
