king of the road, part eleven


it's been awhile since we last updated our story.

if you need a refresher, the first ten segments of king of the road are all over here.



When the helicopters started showing up, they had to wait until Jasper stacked some of the flattened cars to the side to land. “What a waste,” you said, but you kept on working. I tried to remember if we had left that fifth in the freezer last night.

Even after Jasper had finished cleaning things up, there still wasn’t enough room for all of the news crews to land. About five of six ended up just circling the interstate, filming the gridlock and the fires.

Jasper came back over and sat on the partition, watching the helicopters land and camera crews pile out.
