_Roxane groaned, "Un...cool..."

_Indeed hours went by and the duo on the tractor had moved barely a mile. Without the current of speed to cool them, they were beginning to feel the heat of the sun. Sweat beaded across Roxane's forehead, and she had tied her shirt into a tight knot. Knowing traffic wasn't going to move anytime soon, she laid horizontally across her seat. She stretched a bit and complained, "Hooooot...!!! Andrew...! It's hoooot!!"

"You think I don't know that?" Andrew barked. He laid spread out atop the caboose of the tractor, feeling himself bake in the sun like an egg. Each passing minute was like an hour in an oven. Even the fields of his home farm weren't as horrible as the heat of the thousand of cars surrounding him.

_"I'm going to die..." Roxane groaned. She sat up for a moment to see if the line of cars had moved yet. Staring for a moment in disbelief, her eyes widened and her pupils dilated. The roads were beginning to bend in the waves of the heat, creating strange illusions that Roxane found funny. "Heh heh heh... Whooo~"

"Get a hold of yourself, Roxy!" Andrew shouted, sitting up and shaking her. He then wiped his forehead, looking up towards the sky. It was so hot, and they had no air conditioner like the other lucky drivers. He dug through Roxane's knapsack for her umbrella then opened it. He dragged Roxane out of the driver's seat and onto the caboose, where he had covered the burning metal with a blanket. He held the umbrella up, providing shade for Roxane and him.
Traffic began to move and Andrew started up the tractor again, only to move it about ten feet. When he stopped, he blinked, unable to grasp the fact of how little distance was gained. Grinding his teeth, he stuck the handle of the umbrella between the seat and the caboose so that it stood on its own above Roxane's body. He then hoped off the tractor and kicked the rear of the car in front of them.
"Get a move on! What's the hold up?! Are you guys taking naps or something!? This isn't funny," he shouted. "We're dying out here!"

_"Mmm... I feel better. Why?" Roxane opened her eyes to see the umbrella over her head. She sat up and felt her forehead, it was a bit cooler with the sweat and the shade keeping it from evaporating. She looked over at Andrew and frowned, seeing that he was loosing his temper in the heat. She hopped off the caboose of the tractor and pulled him away from the car. "Calm down, hothead. If you keep this up, you'll faint like I did. Don't waste your energy on these knucklehead. Come on."
_She helped him under the shade of the umbrella. Cocking her head, she spotted the left over soda cups from their stop earlier. She picked it up and removed the lid to see if there was any ice left. She frowned, finding the ice had all melted and sigh. She swirled the water around in disappointed then came to realization. She took a sip of the water to find it still cold. Smiling, she held it to Andrew, "Here, all the ice melted, but the water's still cold!"

Andrew closed one eye to look into the cup better. He shrugged then took a sip, finding the water indeed ice cold. He smiled at Roxane, took another sip and handed her the cup, stating, "Here, you have the rest. Heh. You look terrible in this heat. Not use to it, sweetheart?"

_"Yeah," Roxane rolled her eyes, taking a sip from the cool water. "I haven't had the luxury of working in the heat. Just freezing winter with nothing but a tiny fire for me." She shrugged then finished off the water. Looking over her shoulder, she watched as the car started moving again. Without hesitation, she jumped into the driver's seat and moved the tractor forward. She didn't want to risk losing their spot, because it would be easy to slip in front of them. There were a lot of jerks in the traffic.
_"We'll be there.. eventually," she sighed, leaning back. She could feel her back sticking to the seat, but she was thankful for the umbrella. More than one use, who would've thunk it.

Andrew frowned, staring hard at the traffic in front of him. He felt he was going to go mad, if they stayed any longer in this heat with all these cars absorbing it. Finally sicks of it, he slide into the driver's seat, stating, "Scoot over, sweetheart, we're taking a detour!" He then started up the tractor again and revved the engine. Concentrating like crazy, he waited for the opportunity to arise. As soon as traffic began moving again, he slammed his foot on the gas and turned sharply.
He was able to cross four lanes and get the tractor onto the grass. They were now driving alongside the highway. Tugging on the sides of his mouth, Andrew made a face at the other drivers, "Neeeh...!"

_Laughing hysterically, Roxane waved her arms at the other drivers, "Ha! Eat your heart out, suckers!" She then blew a few kisses at the peeved vehiclists. Sitting back down next to Andrew, she gave him a large grin of satisfaction. She couldn't remember the last time she had so much fun without-
_Her happy train of thought was cut off by the sound of siren closing in from behind. Turning around, she saw the police closely pursuing the tractor. She tapped Andrew's shoulder and exclaimed, "We've got the fuzz after us! Step on it!"

"Shit!" Andrew cursed under his breath. He lifted his head to get a better look and saw the highway ending at a bridge crossing a large body of water. Pressing his foot against the gas, he shouted, "Hold on, babe!" He then fastened the first button of his jean jacket and leaned forward, wrapping one arm around Roxane. He then took a sharp turn just before the green came to a sudden drop into the blue. He managed to place the right set of wheels on the sidewalk of the bridge. The left side of the tractor rushed past the others cars, brushing them ever so slightly.
Straining his neck around, Andrew grinned as he watched the siren lights of the police cruiser slowly disappear in the distance. He then turned back to look ahead and chuckled wholeheartedly to himself.
"I've never done something so stupid!" he exclaimed happily. The tractor bounced violently as the duo made their way across the bridge. Andrew absentmindedly kept his arm tightly wrapped around Roxane.

_Roxane, clearly shaken up by the near fall into the ocean, had her arms wrapped tightly around Andrew's waist. She had her cheek pushed against his chest as she stared ahead towards the Big Apple. The happiness she felt was not shown on her lips; it was a quiet joy that she simply wanted to enjoy in silence with Andrew.

[Um, I don't know. =\ One of us have to tell her we're waiting or whatever. But really I'm more interested in Cat's Escape and Immune right now]
