Why not?

This week's submission for The 100 Word Stories Podcast:

Around the bend came the first set of headlights I’d seen since starting this late night hours journey. 
The unknown Packard slowed beside me.  Yelling out, he called: “Hey, Buddy, need a lift?”

My socks - no dryer than a used kitchen sponge and the blisters about to pop before completing my walk ahead.  “Sure,” I said, “why not?

Then did I notice poking my right hip a bulge in the map holder. “What’s this?” I asked.

“Oh, that pistol it’s just in case I run into trouble.”

I wonder what sort of trouble we were now looking to find.

Thanks for reading and listening (11:20)!
