Red to green

She spied him from her rear view mirror. Their eyes met - mirror to window as they abided for the red light to turn green. They stuck to their lane cruising slowly behind a bevy of cars. He was still behind her as she patiently waited for the frequent right turning stretch of road to end. The slow traffic gave their eyes the opportunity to meet again, occasionally for a split second before it went back to the traffic in front.

The moment the stretch cleared, she steered into the clear lane and sped of with a twinkle in her eye. She knew he would give chase. And he did, trying to gain in speed, trying to beat her at her game. He was still behind her, she softly hitting her brakes as the van in front of started halting. He immediately changed lanes thinking he'd won the game, thinking he was the speed champ. She smiled at his reaction, she knew the roads better after all she was the queen. She was still cruising slowly when he came to a halt as the other lane had stopped way before them. The van you see had blocked the view of the long queue. She had won, as always. Still at the traffic light, he's lane started moving as it cleared to the left.

He turned towards her with an exasperasted look as he peeked into see who had won. She chuckled out loud having won, having predicted the win!

Ps : ok this one is not fiction like rogue. This one really happened a few days back. I kinda like this game and hold your horses on speeding - I wasn't doing F1 speed and this wasn't my first time. ;p
