SOMEWHERE IN THE SHADOWS…

Somewhere in the shadows ahead, a door squealed open and closed but of course, she couldn’t see anyone.

The lights suddenly sprang on, so bright she was temporarily blinded. She raised her hand to shield her eyes and felt a cold hand touch her shoulder…

THE STRANGER…

Diane had no idea where he had come from. But, whoever he was, he was charming.

He was short, stocky and handsome.

It was a friend who suggested she met him. She had been looking for a while.

She knew that once she met him, she would have to have him.

He was nothing like Jack though, this poodle was very well trained….

THE BIG PEAR…

Something terrible has happened. I can scarcely bring myself to write the words. I just can’t believe it. I mean who would have thought she would have gone ahead with it.

Time to leave, anchors up !

I sat in the forward lounge with a glass of something congenial in my hand. I’d taken the usual pills to stop me from being sea sick.

There were people passing and some traffic.

And then she heard a noise, footsteps along the wide entrance hall outside her door.

Her heart was beating fast.

But, the footsteps carried on past her door again.

THE JOB…

Did you get my emails?

I hope so, I’d hate to think of those hours in the internet cafe as wasted.

Perhaps the flowers have arrived. I know you got my calls. I would have sent you more, but I’m by no means rich, like you, as I no longer work.

You’re my job now….

THE INJECTION…

I felt the needle go in but this time it felt different.

I am gasping for breath.

My room is full of Doctors and nurses.

I dont want to die ! I try to speak but I cannot.

Someone is telling me things will be alright.

A cannula is fitted and hitched up to a machine.

I took in what I thought was my last breath…
