Stranded in the Wilderness/Rabbit

From Create Your Own Story

You slump down sheepishly in the driver's seat, eyebrows furrowing in worry, long ears set back. You already miss the warmth of the car's jenky heater, however broken it may have been. Rubbing your paws together, you flip the switch toggling the emergency lights and try to steel yourself. Outside of the windows, white plains of snow blind your vision.

Out of all the things... the one most important thing, at least in this weather... You cross your arms, and slowly turn your head out to the snow-capped pines lining the road. There's no way anybody's going to drive by in this weather, or on this road, and no way they'll even find your car (or you) after another few hours of this ferocious storm. You hate for the options to be so limited, but you already know what your decision must be.
