With no phone reception and unknown dangers lurking, can these two alpha personalities work together to survive the night?

This is a good story, but I'm bummed that I already read it in a compilation of short stories. At least it was only a dollar that I threw away.
Great reading for under a dollar, all 20 pages of it. Why read and buy a portion of a story?
What a fun little dose of John Corey
This was a great way to kill 20 minutes on a Monday night.
