Deb Whitman is the host of 50 Words Thursday this week.
I’m looking forward to what these prompts inspire, so here’s the picture:
And the words:
“She had thought it a game.” – Madeline Hunter’s A Devil of a Duke.
She woke up feeling dizzy. The discomfort of being in the same position for a long time gradually faded as she got up and moved around.
What a trick Doug had played on her. Pretending to like her and asking her for a home-cooked meal at his place. She wasn’t sure but she thought that the wine tasted funny and here she was, in a seemingly abandoned warehouse. She had thought it a game at first but now when she had come to her senses she was afraid. He must have some plan that she didn’t know about.
Walking towards the wooden door, she gave it a push and was surprised when it gave. The scene outside was very familiar. It was the warehouse near the quay. She snuck out, trying to remain hidden. But he was standing there waiting for her.
“Meg, my darling you’re awake “
“What is this Doug, Why am I here?”
He replied with a nervous laugh, “I wanted to give you a surprise. Come here and look at this boat. I’m calling it Meg!”
“You didn’t have to drug and abduct me to do that, I’d have come willingly to see it,” she said angrily.
“I know I’ve made a big mistake. I hope you will forgive me but I wasn’t sure that you liked me enough to come with me on this cruise”
“For your information, the only place I am going is to the police station to report this crime” she said.
