“Wind Shear” by Bruce Henderson

John and Benny had known each other since elementary school. John became the quiet dependable family man while Benny continued his childlike life of adventure. While they kept in contact, their interaction diminished a little more as each year passed.  

One day everything changed. John, his wife, and grandmother had traveled to Missouri to meet his new boss and look for housing to go with his new job. They were finishing up visiting the last house with the realtor when a gust of wind split a tree in half and blocked the road. John quickly pulled the car to a complete stop. He started to get out of the car, but something changed his mind. All of a sudden a huge face appeared at the front of the car. It moved over to where it was directly in front of the driver’s side of the car and paused as if it was trying to look at John face to face. What he saw was not flesh and blood, but it was floating in the air as if it was riding the wind. The speckled gray hair it had looked almost human, but its face looked like it was part man and part beast. Suddenly, his mouth opened and out if it came winds that felt like it was ripping the car apart. John yelled, “Does anyone see what I’m seeing”, but no one answered. He was directed to back up to find an alternate route when he found a side road that took them around the tree. As soon as they took the road the face disappeared and the winds died.    

The next day John arrived back at his office from his trip intent on at least working the remaining half of the day. He was surprised to find out that Benny had called and left a message about a major discovery he wanted to share with him during an impromptu visit tomorrow.  Neither of them knew how the two events would shape their lives.
