“I’m beginning to worry that we’re not going to be transported to Hell,” Emmer said sarcastically from the backseat.

“It’s too bad we couldn’t bring Casey,” Greg lamented, referring to the feral coydog The Fallen had adopted a few months earlier. “She would know if there were any Hell hounds lurking around here.”

Mike sighed deeply as the forest became denser and an overgrown railroad bridge came into view in the Corolla’s headlights. It was obvious from first glance that this bridge hadn’t been in use for a long time. The steel rails of the railroad tracks, if they were still there, were hidden under a layer of dirt and weeds. Small bushes and saplings grew on top of the bridge.

Suddenly, as they slowly crept through the tunnel, a sharp BANG pierced the air and Mike briefly lost control of the vehicle. “Crowley’s ass!” he swore. “I think we blew a tire!” He guided the Toyota out of the tunnel and pulled to the side of the road.

Cutting the ignition, Mike stepped out of the car along with his four friends, who each examined one of the four tires using small electric torches. After a moment, they discovered that it was the rear, passenger side tire that had blown.

“Well, we’re screwed now,” Emmer joked. “We’ll never get to Hell!”
