I’ve played a little fast and loose with the rally’s
timeline in this part; this year, it took the driving teams and the rest of the
retinue two days to get from the actual finish to Essaouira, where they had the
closing celebratory ceremonies. I plead
particularly how I left things at the end of part 1. Mostly, though, I just
wanted to get them to lovely Essaouira. Because everyone should have some
“Et maintenant?” Driss asks.
And now? It is late in the day, this last day, and he
and Myka are driving their last drive together, towards the finish. The finish

any and all details regarding what she has got up to with women.

Surely you already know of Kiwi but if you don’t, damn dude!! Go check out their speedpaints and art in general, it is all TOP-NOTCH!
Also btw here’s my speedpaint of this angsty ocean gem:
