99 Words #31 – No Escape

I’m staring out the window watching the plane taxi to the terminal and my mind starts to wander. Soon my days will be filled with palm trees, bikinis, and warm sun on my skin. I’m so close.

I don’t notice she’s slipped up behind me until she loops her arm through mine. She sets her lips close to my ear. “Come with me please.”

I feel a sharp pain in my side. I turned to look but she warns against it.

“It won’t hurt much, but you’ll bleed like the dickens.” The sweetness in her tone disappears. “Let’s go.”
