The driver screamed curses at me in angry counterpoint to the dingus’s mad beeping. We came to a stop with a thump as the front right tire and most of the caravan behind landed in the ditch, nearly jackknifed in two. I glanced back; my little house was tipped, but not going over as yet.

“Right. That’s it for you.”

I stopped the engine, snatched up the dingus, and popped the boot. I wrapped the blanket around it and stuffed it into the already full space—my winter gear mostly, so it had a soft nest. I shoved it deep and cursed myself for not leaving it to its own fate. I unhitched the caravan, and after a brief tussle, heave-ho’d it back onto the road, straightened out the Penelope, and got the two hitched back together again.

  1. Some seriously intense scene setting here. Not sure what the dingus actually thinks about its fate, but… I do know there’s more trouble ahead.
