Parallel Lives chapter 67
The journey to Bristol had proven to be more pleasant than
any of the three had expected. Despite taking opposite directions after leaving
the car park, within twenty minutes Alan had found himself about seven cars
behind Jack on a major 'A' road running South, and had soon caught up with him.
It had been clear that Sam Jackson and his entourage had been unable to keep up
and to Alan's untutored eyes there didn't appear to be any cars tailing him.
Within another twelve minutes all but one of the intervening vehicles had
turned off the main road and there wasn't another car behind him anywhere in view.
Eventually the intervening car decided that Jack was travelling too slow for
the winding and undulating country road, certainly by local driving standards,
and took an opportunity to overtake and pull away rapidly into the distance.
There was enough light left for Jack to recognise Alan's car, so at the next
lay-by both cars pulled up.
Jack approached Alan's window, stretching as he walked.
'Looks like we got clear then,' he said, looking at his
watch, 'and I reckon another hour should do it.' Alan remained seated while
Karen took the opportunity to walk around the car.
'I hope we have something to find when we get down there,'
he said, 'still, nothing ventured.' They all stopped to watch a saloon car

'Your guess is as good as mine,' replied Jack, 'are we
going in convoy now?' Alan nodded, it seemed reasonable. 'Karen might as well
stay with you, in case we get separated. It can be a nightmare in Bristol and
the outskirts.' Karen agreed, they all returned to their seats and continued on
