The Van Helsing Impetus – Excerpt No. 342

Clara switched vehicles twice in the last few hours. She figured it would throw off potential pursuers, assuming anyone was following her at all. Now that she had some breathing room, Clara pulled into a remote motel lot.

She parked in an isolated space and killed the engine. Once the interior lights faded away, it was just her, the sound of the pinging engine, and the night sky. Alas, her view of the stars were drowned out by the ‘No Vacancy’ sign flickering in and out of existence.

After twenty minutes, the sky took on shades of purple and red as a precursor to the rising sun. Shortly thereafter, a man left his room with a bag in hand. He tossed it onto the passenger seat of his truck and drove off.
