“I heard something,” he says and tries to peek through the foggy windows of his car. But she will not have any of this nonsense, and takes his face and guides it towards her open blouse, giggling with anticipation.
It is winter, the snowy landscape tranquil. But Marc and Sarah are not cold, their cheeks are flushed, their breath is heated. And so they do not notice the car crashing nearby. The driver is hurt badly; she barely makes it out of the wreck.
