Defying All Laws of Nature

The old man glanced at the gas gauge and realized it would be touch and go if he could make it to the service station before running out of fuel.  

@BatteredHope Unbelievable miracle while traveling
How can this be happening?

Unfortunately, the inevitable happened and that awful sputtering forced him to pull over to the side of the road.  He didn't know how his age and disability would allow him to walk the three miles to the closest station.  Breathing a silent prayer and taking a moment to consider his options, it happened.  

What in the world.....?????

There was a sudden jolt and the car lunged forward.  Looking in the rear view mirror he saw no one or any thing that could have caused that jolt but the car was definitely being pushed ahead and he grabbed the steering wheel to steer the car carefully.  It was difficult to steer as the car was not running so the power steering was not working a well.  He didn't have time to question what was happening as he was concentrating on steering towards the gas station he could now see getting closer.

Totally remarkable and unexplainable.....

It made absolutely no sense and defied all laws of nature but his car stopped within inches of the gas pump as he breathed a prayer of thanksgiving in total astonishment.

The Write Tribe Festival of Words challenge for today was to write a story in exactly nine sentences.  We were asked to write fiction but truth is better than fiction and this actually happened to my father-in-law!
