 I think Harry said 640 when I asked him. Six-hundred-and-forty.

My jeans squeak against the seat as I wriggle in the expensive leather upholstery. Eyes scan a horizon of gadgets. I flick a nervous look at Harry in the passenger seat, try and look confident, and forget this stallion is literally ten times more powerful than my little Peugeot pony at home.

Greased palms slide around the steering wheel. The Mercedes emblem glares at me from its centre. “I hope you know what you’re doing” it seems to say. I push the button and she roars. She’s awake.

Purring as I pull away, the sound of the engine stutters as it reflects off the pines lining the lay-by.

I’m on the slip. My foot goes down, my weight thrown back, adrenaline surges, ocean of sound.

My turn.
