Complications – Part 6

Part 6

The commotion on the street is bringing people out onto their porches. “Someone please call 911!” I plead.

I take off running again. Donna, her face twisted in rage, is brandishing the bloody knife in my direction as she takes off behind me.

In the distance I hear sirens and relief floods through me. Please let them be coming here!

I glance back and notice she isn’t far behind me now. I have to keep her running long enough for the police to get here.

I never see the foot that trips me and sends me head over heels.

    Well, that wasn’t nice to leave me hanging like that…I even scrolled down to make sure I didn’t miss anything 🙂 Someone’s either going to help him, or hand him over to the knife…looking forward to seeing which it is.

      Uh, well, uh, I don’t know yet! 🙂 I am in suspense myself. Oh yeah, that’s right, I am the creator and therefore I need to break the suspense. LOL! I need some sleep. Thank you for stopping by.
