As a long haul trucker, I’m used to being by myself with just the open road and my thoughts spinning through my mind entertaining myself with stories.
I generally don’t like having a rider along as they interrupt my thinking and is somewhat dangerous, but when a middle age woman came up and asked for a ride at the truck stop, I was intrigued.
She didn’t look like the typical truck stop groupie that is usually grungy or have excess make up, instead she was dressed in blue jeans and a plaid shirt with a simple backpack.
I knew I was taking a chance, but I threw caution to the wind and nodded yes to her.
She thanked me but not overly so and said her name was Harmony.
It’s been six months now and I still don’t know anything about her, but I enjoy the company.
