Moved over from Six Short of a Dozen…
It’s time for another A’Muse” Me Monday from Four Fantabulous Females. I’m going to play along with both Fact and Fiction this week:
Fact: What’s your favorite way to relax?
I love to relax with some hot tea and a great book under a cozy blanket and my kitty, Lady Muse tucked beside me. Or maybe snuggling with King Dude while we watch a movie.
Fiction: I’m going to write a small part of a story and you have to fill in the blanks!
Susan Parker strolled down the street enjoying the sunshine. The smell of fresh bread wafted out from a nearby bakery and her tummy rumbled reminding her she hadn’t eaten for a couple of hours. She turned to walk into the little shop when Lean on Me rang out. She yanked her cell phone out of her pocket.
“Hey, Lisa, did you get the job?”
“Who’s this?” A man’s voice growled over the line causing the hairs to rise on the nape of her neck.
“Uh, it’s, uh, Susan.” She glanced at her phone displaying Lisa’s goofy grin. It was her phone, but who had it? “Is Lisa there?”
“Lisa? No, she’s been detained. This is Officer Moore. We need to talk to you, Susan. Can you stay where you are?”
Susan glanced around. She couldn’t help feeling like someone was watching her. “Why don’t I come down to the station?”
“No, we’re almost to your location. Stay put!” The voice barked at her and the line went dead.
It didn’t make sense. The whole thing felt off. Should she wait?
A black sedan cruised slowly down the street. Fear snaked through her. She ducked into the bakery and glanced back to see two men get out of the car. A third man pulled away and appeared to be searching for someone. Not someone. Her!
That was fun. If you’d like to play along, find out how to join in on A’Muse’ Me Monday over at Four Fantabulous Females.
