For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 20 September 2019

It was early morning. Anna woke up to find herself bruised and locked inside a house.

The last thing Anna remembered, she was walking alone in the park when somebody grabbed her from behind and kidnapped her.

Anna knew she must find a way to escape while her abductor was gone. But how? After scouting the place, the window above the kitchen sink seemed to be her only option.

Anna knew time was of the essence. Gingerly, she made her move and started climbing.

Suddenly, Anna heard loud knocks on the door. It was the police coming to rescue her.

    Dear Plaridel,

    That knock at the door is a relief. Nicely done.

    Shalom,

    I thought the knock at the door was going to be bad news, fortunately it seems to be a happy ending this time!

    Makes me wonder how the police knew and if they are in on it? The story would make a great longer piece πŸ˜€.

      due to the 100-word limit, the writer sometimes gets sloppy and forces the readers to use their imagination to fill up the missing details. πŸ™‚

    That’s a stroke of luck! I hope she doesn’t fall trying to get back down.

    I enjoyed the story, Plaridel. It’s great the police found her before her kidnapper returned or she risked climbing out the overhead window. Well done. —- Suzanne

    Thank goodness! I feared for her being able to open that window.
    Made me think of “Room”.

    The police will be a safer option than that window.

    So glad the police saved her! That skylight looks a little challenging to reach.

      as daunting as it might be, she didn’t have any other if the police didn’t come.

    Good police came. She would have got out otherwise also. May be getting out would have been a little less easy.

      escaping through the window would prove to be very challenging indeed.

    If this were a TV program, that knock on the door would be followed immediately to a cut to a commercial πŸ™‚

    What a relief!
