Caius’ Hot Rod Racer

In the wee hours of the day, when his family turns to bed, Caius goes to his little shed in the garden. He has been doing this for a few years now, and no one knows why.

Neighbors hear all kinds of sounds and someone even tried to take a sneak peak, unfortunately Caius’ big dog ran him off the property. Finally on a Saturday morning, it’s early, the neighbors hear a rumbling sound get louder and louder. The sounds of a twelve cylinder engine fills the usually quiet neighborhood. The roar gets bigger and bigger, people rush outside, the shed doors open and Caius drives his Hot Rod Racer for the first time out of the shed.

Under the watchful eyes of all he burns rubber on his street with a smile from ear to ear.
