The Abduction


This post is in response to the Trifextra Weekend Challenge. They asked us to write a 33-word explanation of what scares us. So many choices, so little time.


The Abduction

Footsteps from behind matched hers, followed by a loud crack. Darkness. Her eyes shot open. A strong smell of pine wood and dirt. Tightly fit. 
Her pleas absorbed by six feet of earth.
