Daniel, Kerry, and their two boys were on a trip to see Daniel’s grandmother (They all called her granny). She lived in a remote area of east Texas and the trip from their home in Ft Worth took around three hours to drive. Once through the bustling city, the landscape became rural, and the closer they got to Granny’s place, the more dense the trees became. Going down the last tree-lined road before arriving at her house, Kerry noticed how peaceful it looked during the daytime, compared to how scary it looked at night.
She recalled one such trip when they arrived on this road in the dark, their nerves had been shattered by everything from a sick, crying baby, to crazy traffic…she was just ready to BE there already! As they slowly drove down the same road, their headlights illuminated the trees, making them seem frightening, Daniel said they must go slow for fear of wildlife darting out in the road. Just then, a rabbit’s eyes became visible, or was it a cat? Chupacabra? Their minds went crazy at the possibilities, and then the trees parted and Granny’s house thankfully came into view. Kerry decided right then and there, she’d rather make this trip in the daytime from now on!
