The GPS wasn't working anymore, but my sister insisted she knew where we were going.
We had been driving forever. The GPS wasn't working anymore, but my sister insisted she knew where we were going. I thought we should just stop and ask for directions. With our phones totally out of battery and no signal up here, there was no way we'd get out of this mountain. My brain decided this was the perfect time for a head ache as it thought the altitude was too much. I laid my head down on the window and buried my face in my arms as I tried to imagine we were out of this situation.
"Ah, I think I've got it now," I heard my sister say as I jerked my head up to see where we were now at. Suddenly I got a spark of deja vu and for some reason I thought I'd seen the same pattern of trees before that were standing outside the car window now. Groaning, I announced I was pretty sure we were going around in circles. She laughed and reassured me we were on the right road now. I heavily doubted that, but nonetheless my head went back to resting on the window.
Eventually, I tried again. "Don't you think we should ask someone where the main road is?"
"Nah, don't worry, I know where we're going. I've been down here before," she reassured me even though I didn't have anymore confidence in her directional skills than I had had before.
A few minutes later she made the same exclamation and again I looked up. This time a spark of hope filled me as I noticed a row of houses down the way. Wait, this was where we came in from! "Just keep going straight, I know it's this way," I spouted out overly excited to be getting out of here. Deja vu stayed with me the entire way back to civilization as we passed buildings, fences, and forests I remembered heading back down the mountain.
