_"NO!' Roxanne screamed, flailing her arms. Her bike wobbled a bit and she grabbed the left handle bar the pointed with her right. "A cow!"

"Huh?" Andrew followed the tip of her finger with his eyes until he saw what she was pointing at was indeed a cow. Clenching his teeth, eyes wide as dinner plates, Andrew switched his foot from the gas to the brakes and came to a screeching skid. He turned the wheel as far as it would go. The tractor slid sideways toward the cow, stopping only when it gently touched the bovine.
The cow turned its head and gave an annoyed "moo" at Andrew, who smiled sheepishly with a shrug. As the cow made its way sluggishly to the other side of the road, he gave a loud sigh and let his forehead hit against the wheel.

_Roxanne gripped the brakes on her handlebars mere seconds after Andrew had stopped his tractor. the front tire of her bike stopped immediately and she was sent out of her seat. She flew through the air and crashed into Andrew's lap, her bike hitting the tractor and only missing them by inches. She frowned forcibly up at Andrew and mumbled, "Er... sorry..."

"Um... not a problem," Andrew smiled, helping her to sit upright. He sat there a moment, staring at her bike. Scratching the back of his neck, he asked, "So... you're running away from home...?"

_Roxanne quickly hopped off the tractor and backed away from it. She curled her fists and she replied, "Yeah, what's it to ya?" She obviously wasn't about to give up her newly found freedom. Her stance suggested to would fight Andrew until her dying breath before letting least of all him from stopping her.

Andrew held his hands up to show he meant no harm, "Easy, sweetheart. I was just asking. Besides, I know how it feels. I just broke free myself not too long ago. Why else do you think I'm driving this?" He patted the hood of the tractor, which gave a loud whistle afterwards.

_Grinning slyly, Roxanne shrugged, "I thought you were some whack-job, honestly." She kicked her bike so that it stood on its own two wheels for a moment before it began to tip over. She caught it before it could fall and mounted its seat. She pushed off the pavement with her toes to get a rolling start then placed her feet on the pedals.
_Waving at Andrew, she stated, "Well, it was nice meeting you, farm-boy. Maybe we'll catch one another in the wild again later." She then turned a small dial on her handlebar and began to ride away from Andrew.

Roxane's wild hair flowing in the wind once again hypnotized Andrew as he watched her ride away. Shaking his head to regain focus, he started up his tractor and rode after her. Waving his hand, he shouted after her, "Wait!" When she stopped, raising an eyebrow at him he swallowed his shyness and stopped beside her.
"You know, if you're not really planning on a place to go, we could just travel together," he stated with a charming smile. He nodded towards her bike, "You won't get far with that thing. You're fast, but you're gonna get tired quick. If you still want to keep it, though, you can just hook it to the back. There's some rope to help secure it, too."

_Roxane stared at the farm boy, scanning his face for worthiness. She puckered her orange lips to the side and looked over the tractor. Finally, she gave a shrug and replied, "Sure, what the hay." She walked to the back of the tractor and placed the bike standing on the two hooks on the bumper. She tied the rope on the front and back wheels of her bike to the tractor. Smiling to herself, she hopped onto the caboose of the tractor and slid her knapsack off her back.
_Banging the metal of the tractor, back to Andrew, she stated, "So whatcha running from, farm boy?"

"Promise not to laugh?" Andrew smirked as he gently pressed the gas of the tractor. He felt her gaze on the back of his head, but he kept his eyes on the road. He didn't wait for answer, "Ever since I was little I wanted to go into show business and sing. Living on a farm, I didn't have much money to be spending on movies, so the ones I've seen aren't very good and are really old, but I loved them all the same. No matter how corny the plot was, the characters were always the best and there was always at least one good scene that made it memorable.
"That's what I want, see? To be remembered, even its by only a few," he stared off into the distance with soft sadness. The wind picked up and used his free hand to close his leather jacket over his bare chest. With a shiver, he added, "Plus, my uncle wasn't too good to me. I was more of a burden to him and if I didn't do my work right..." His voice trailed as the tractor continued its way down the never-ending road.
Turning to looked back at Roxane over his shoulder, he gave well-pasted smile and asked, "Well, what about you? What's your story, sweetheart?"

_Roxane frowned, turning her back to Andrew and crossing her arms. She stared at the skies, which were starting to turn grey with clouds. She sighed and said, "My parents wanted to send me to military school. I haven't been the best kid to have... but they never even talked to me, ya know? I was just doing whatever I wanted, because I thought they didn't care what I did. Now I know they do, but I also know they don't care about.... well, about just me in general. Ya know?
_"I've got dreams, too, farm-boy..." she tilted her head back, her eyes softening a bit. Then, more to herself than to Andrew, she whispered, "I want to fly..." The sound of raindrops hitting the pavement emerged from afar. Roxane rummaged through her knapsack and pulled out something long and blue. She held its hooked end and struggled with trying to open it. When the umbrella finally blossomed like a flower, the rain reached them and she held the umbrella over her and Andrew. She scotched back and squeezed herself next to him, smiling a bit stupidly.
_"Lucky thing I remembered to bring this," she said. "I'm good at guessing."

Andrew moved over to make room for Roxane. He smiled softly at her, appreciating she had brought the umbrella. He didn't really understand what she meant about her parents, but the fire from her was gone for the moment as if the rain itself were putting it out. Grinning like a movie star, he said, "Well, guess what? I'll help you make your dream come true, if you help me with mine. What do you say, sweetheart? Is it a deal?" He held his hand out to her for a handshake.

_Roxane brightened and she took Andrew's hand in hers, shaking it firmly. "You got a deal." She then let go of his hand and poked his chest roughly, "But stop calling me sweetheart! We're not in Hollywood yet!" She gave a sly grin and turned the umbrella a bit in her hand.

Andrew smirked a bit, "I think I have the right to call you Sweetheart, sweetheart. I did see your orange panties~" He bounced his eyebrows a bit at her then laughed. The looked on her face was absolutely priceless; however, he had no idea why he enjoyed it so much.

_Roxane's cheeks turned bright red, making her look strange with that fact that she wore orange lipstick. Nervously brushing her hair behind her ear, she mumbled, "Shut up." Then smiled, "I was just being an ass." She turned away when Andrew looked at her in disbelief then the two shared a good laugh.
_"Heheheh~ So... where we heading? I figure we could just go sight-seeing since we have no idea where to start. I mean, its only natural for guys like you to want to start in Hollywood. But... that doesn't really work in the real world. Usually you have to be discovered by some agent that's traveling the place for fresh talent," she said.
