Troublesome City Folk?

I'm reading House by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. To be honest, I bought it solely on the basis of it's cover (mostly black, with a few bits of green thrown in, with a dark, gloomy house as the central image). It's your standard "couple (or in this case, couples) get stranded in the backwoods of the American south, find a seemingly conforting inn, only to get tortured by the demented Christians that run the inn."

And honestly, I'm a little weary of reading horror stories about demented Christians living in the backwoods of the American south torturing the shit out of scared city folk.

So, Tainted Tea readers, here's your challenge: Reverse it. Write a story about nice, smart country folk who get lost in the middle of the city, get seemingly saved by liberal, athesistic city folk, with trouble ensuing later.

Until then, I'm going to finish reading House.
