The Hitch-Hikers by Eudora Welty

Tom Harris, a travelling salesman decides to pick up a couple of hitch hikers one day. One of the hitch hikers has a guitar with him. When they get to town, Tom goes into the motel for them to get them a room. When he comes back, the man with the guitar is badly wounded. The man does not make it through the night and his co-hitch hiker confesses to the killing. This story is an intense one, but must be read slowly to catch the story between the lines...

I'm thinking you like these really intense stories! Sounds very interesting... but would it give me nightmares?

I don't think that any of these stories would give you nightmares, they would more likely just give you a slight headache...

You don't know how easily I have nightmares....Last night I was in Africa - in quite the situation! I think I would rather have a headache!

Just have to tell you - I just put a hold on the book that these stories are from - so I'll be able to READ them! I'm really excited - and I'll let you know about the nightmares....
