Now for my next excerpt.
A tiny green sign flashed by so fast, she didn’t get the chance to read it. Hitting the brakes, she put the car into reverse and backed up until she could see it again in her headlights.
Itsy 14 mi.
By God, there really was a place called Itsy. “My cup runneth over,” she dryly murmured.
The fourteen miles seemed endless. At last, she caught the faint glimmer of light on the horizon. As she drew nearer, the lights of the town became more focused. There weren’t many of them, she noted. “Probably trying to save on their electric bill.”
The city limits sign passed by.
“Oh, wow, Milton. You guys really had to scrounge to find this place, didn’t you?”
But she knew there was more to the stats than just this town. There were all the other little towns and burgs in this county, and within the surrounding counties, that the company considered. It wasn’t just the immediate population. It was the combined population that made the executives determine whether to build a RiteCost at that location or not.
Whether the locals wanted a RiteCost built in their back yards or not.
