The early morning sun was already well risen by the time Riley and Lucas pulled into the parking lot of a Starbucks, leaving the ground smoldered in a disoriented haze. Even the birds stood silent as if it was too hot to move, the first heat wave of the summer showing no mercy to it’s New York inhabitants.
Much to Lucas’ dismay the AC in his car had finally bit the dust, leaving the two newly graduated seniors to sweat in the unforgiving heat. The plan was to spend the summer before their freshman year of college going on adventures together. First on their list was a road trip to Niagara Falls but now that the air conditioner was a no go, Lucas was starting to have his doubts.
“Maybe it’s a sign.” He frowns, feeling the hot air being released from the vents. Riley smiles at him, reaching her hand out to see for herself. She didn’t think it was possible but it seemed the air blowing into their faces was hotter than the actual outside air.
“Why don’t we just drive with the windows down? Once we pick up speed it shouldn’t be that bad.” She tried to remain as optimistic as possible. She had been looking forward to this road trip since Lucas mentioned it last summer and she hated the thought of having to call it off just because of a little hot air. Okay, a lot of hot air. But still, she wasn’t ready to give up just yet.
