And the Words: “OK,” I said. “Let’s go meet your chief.” It was the first time I’d spoken since ordering breakfast. – Killing Floor by Lee Child.

I planned on enjoying my first visit to London. But the day I arrived, the lockdown was announced. All my plans to visit my favorite places were ruined. But I was sure I could find a way around it. I had spent my vacation time and a lot of money to come here. How could I spend all my time locked inside my hotel room? I searched on the internet and found a tour company that was willing to show me around. I got the call around mid-day. The guy had arranged everything and wanted me to meet the head of their organization. “OK,” I said. “Let’s go meet your chief.” It was the first time I’d spoken since ordering breakfast.

They took me sightseeing in a car to all the places I wanted to visit. I’d to stay in the car and could only take pictures from inside.

Word count; 150

  1. This almost happened to me, Sadje! We were supposed to spend a week in London at the beginning of May. I am sooooo glad we hadn’t booked plane tickets or our apartment just yet. Then again, it wouldn’t have been like your story, since our flight would have been canceled.

      1. Yes, we feel super lucky about that! We got quite a treat before having to spend all that time at home 😉 Let’s just hope that it will not take too long before people can travel again safely…
