Lauren McAllen wrapped her hands around the steering wheel and held on tight.
Raindrops splattered the windshield while the wipers furiously knocked them away.
"You may think you're getting him back, Ashely," she hissed through clenched teeth, "but trust me, it'll never happen because he's all mine now." A defiant smiled broke out across her face, but it instantly turned into a look of sheer panic and terror as she frantically yanked the steering wheel back and forth. Unable to regain control of the car, she threw her arms across her face and braced herself for impact.
"Cut!" shouted a man's voice. "And that's a wrap."
As Lauren relaxed, she turned her head and smiled. "So, we got it?"
"Perfectly," he replied, "but if you wouldn't mind waiting here, the director would like to speak with you for a moment."
Lauren patiently waited for the rain machine to shut down. A moment later a production assistant walked up to the car and extended his hand. A serious look came over her face as she took his hand and allowed him to pull her out. Before walking away, she turned and looked back at the prop car, placed in front of a green screen.
"And so it ends for Hayley Ann Lancaster Wright Sweeney Mason, as her car crashes off the bridge and plunges deep into the bay, but at least she went out with a bang."
