Crystalline doilies, one by one, fall in muted perfection, dancing as diamonds in the silvery moonlight.

I turn the starter several times. Grinding but no action. Get out. Raise the hood. Someone will stop to help.

Distant headlights, blinding me as they advance. A silhouette car and man stand idle behind the glare.

"Come here, Barbara. It's over."

"No. I just need a boost. It's the battery. It's dead."

"Dead, yes. Not it. You." He reaches for my hand but I repulse his advance.

The snowflakes dull in an extinguished moon. The frosted doilies lay as a shroud over me.
