As she pulled up behind the white sedan, she noticed a little silver emblem on the trunk of the car ahead of her which looked like a tiny little stretched out window, and something told her that meant the car was a Lincoln, not that it mattered, because a lot of things she thought didn't matter.
But it itched to suppose that it might really be a little window with the shades drawn tight, and she wondered if there could be anyone trapped in the trunk and if they could somehow see out, but of course she knew they could not see out since the window was made of metal and it made her wonder if she had an ice pick somewhere in the car, to punch a hole in the window to let in some air, just in case someone was indeed in the trunk, and then she realized this way of thinking was what her doctor termed irrational.
So, instead, she followed the man in the sedan for a while, thinking he might pull into the Sav a Lot parking lot, in which case she could park next to him and wait for him to go into the store and then get out and just knock on the trunk lid to see if anyone was in there.
But he passed the Sav a Lot, so she quickly maneuvered to the man's left, and she looked at him sidelong, and saw his graying hair and dark glasses. The dark glasses were what gave him away - there was someone in the trunk, and as the man turned to the right, in her heart she admitted he was going free.
Then a song came on the radio, and she knew all the words, and she sang them until she returned home, where her Brazilian begonias were so much larger than she realized, thickly pressing themselves against the window screen, their wings spotted and dark, their heavy pink blooms blessing her like so much sacred wisteria.
