Kenny took his cap off and scratched his bald head. "What's it been now, twenty years since the last car went down that road? Been a long time, I know."
"April 22nd, 2016, at one thirty-five in the afternoon. One of those new fangled Fords. As I remember it, the two kids driving it were drunk as skunks. Probably stole the damned thing anyway. They staggered up to the door and demanded food. I never seen a woman lose her temper so fast. Audrey laid into them and gave them an ear full. Danged fool ended up giving them something to eat, anyway. That's what done her in, you know. Too damned kind hearted for her own good," Norville said in a low voice.
"Yeah, she was a mighty good woman. I remember the two of you used to fight like cats and dogs all the time. The day those two bums killed her for no reason was the first and only time I ever saw you cry. I only wish we had caught the sons-a-bitches. It just wasn't right. Audrey was such a good, kind hearted woman," Kenny said in a heated voice.
Down the road around the bend, they heard a woman's voice singing. The sound was horrendous. It sounded like someone scraping long fingernails across a blackboard.
