#FiveSentenceFiction: Blush

 It has to happen sometime: it was pitch dark on that lonely road, it was raining, and the flap-flap of the tyre I recognised for what it was, a very flat puncher, bad luck, so had to stop.

The road side was narrow, and there was a wide, deep ditch, with the rain now falling hard, I would have to be careful, the punched tyre was on the kerb side.

I got the kit out of the trunk, already drenched, and started on the nuts with the short spanner, soon realising the tyre had been last changed by Hercules himself or a bloke with some power wrench at his disposal: the nuts did not bulge, I just sweated under my wet clothes.

I saw the headlights, the approaching 4×4, and, ignoring it, I continued with my vain efforts, swearing under my beard, but being aware of someone now standing just behind me.

“Looks as if you could do with some help, sunshine” a clear voice said – and as I looked up I could not help admiring the angel face, under the hood, the blond hair, the fine gloved hands holding a fearsome looking wrench, the beautiful smile and laughing eyes of my female rescuer.

« Je ne plierai pas, je ne m’en irai pas en silence. Je ne me soumettrai pas. Je ne me retournerai pas. Je ne me conformerai pas. Je ne me coucherai pas. Je ne me tairai pas. Le courage, c’est de chercher la vérité et de la dire ; ce n’est pas subir la loi du mensonge triomphant » (Jean Jaurès).
