The tunnel was nearing, car lights glaring, she couldn’t see a thing, but she stayed calm, steady foot on accelarator. It’s ok, you’ve done this many times, you can do this, stay calm. She entered the tunnel. She felt the gloom of the darkness overwhelm. Soon the entrance to the tunnel was disappearing in the rear view. She couldn’t see where she was before the tunnel. It all seemed dark now. Sweaty palms, sore muscles, heavy breathing, she knew all the signs now. She couldn’t see the end. It had happenned so many times, yet she feared everytime that this time, this tunnel, wouldn’t end. She began to tell herself she had to get used to the dark. She squinted, refocussed, still nothing. Keep driving till you get to the other side. You will get to the other side. You will.
