Fleeting are the moments,

Between each breath,

That are wasted on hesitation,

Between life and death….by Laura Osterfeld

Chapter One: The Arrival

Death came to town driving a 1969, black Cadillac hearse. He pulled up in front of the aged motel and stepped from the vehicle. As he emerged from the driver's seat, he stood up and took a dire look around. He was tall and had a head of dark shoulder-length hair that blew in the wind as he pulled the collar of his worn duster up around his neck. He strode around the vehicle and into the lobby of the dated and well used building.

There was no desk clerk to greet him. He looked at the bell.

I hate these damn bells, he mumbled to himself. Hell must be full of these annoying damn things.

Just as he reached out to hit the bell, a young man ran around the corner blabbering something about where he had been and sorry he was not at the desk.

Ok, said the desk clerk, out of breath. His hands were flailing in the air like one of those inflatable thingies.

I take it you need a room! We have two beds or one bed to a room. No fancy stuff like 'fridges or coffee pots or microwaves. Coffee is always in the lobby if you want it. The Pit Stop has some pretty good food if your standards ain't too high. So what'le it be? he finally paused for another breath.

One bed, I won't be staying long and I pay cash, Stated the man.

Your address and phone number, sir. the desk clerk never looked up from the registration sheet.
