Note to recorder:

Better with American or Canadian accent. For A2 level students. It would be nice to speak rather slowly (as if telling the story). Thanks !

One night a woman went out for drinks with her girlfriends. She left the bar late at night. When she got in her car, she saw someone smoking in a pick-up.
She was driving on the deserted highway when she noticed she was law on gas. She was irritated because there was no sign of civilization anywhere.
As she drove, she noticed a lone pair of headlights in her rear-view mirror, approaching fast. The car pulled up behind her, dangerously close to her car, and the brights flashed.
Now she was getting nervous. The car behind her kept flashing the lights on and off and the driver seemed to be shouting and making signs with his hands.
It followed her until she reached home and pulled into her driveway. Terrified, she made a mad dash into her house and called the police. As she ran from the car, so did the driver of the car behind her - and he screamed "Lock the door and call the police ! Call 911!"
When the police arrived the horrible truth was finally revealed to the woman. The man in the car had been trying to save her. As he pulled up behind her and his headlights illuminated her car, he saw the silhouette of a man with an axe rising up from the back seat behind her, so he flashed his brights to warn her.
The police arrested the killer in the back seat who turned out to be an escaped mental patient.
