There are many superstitions about late night rides.
But Nic wasn’t thinking about them as he waited for his ride-hailing car.
The driver was prompt, friendly, and very cheeky.
They traded scary stories throughout the ride; tall tales and folklore about the horror that roams after midnight.
It was all spooky fun and games until Nic learns there’s a kernel of truth behind these stories.
A lesson learned perhaps too late. But better than never.
