100-Word Challenge, Day 004


“Well then what do we do now?”  Julia asked. Her voice flat, but the way her eyes searched out every shadow told me that she was scared.  She had been dragged into this life less than a year ago and had learned well the danger of exposing your fear, but this was the first time she was in a spot she couldn’t talk or fuck her way out of.

“We run.  We keep running until we feel safe and then run a little more.”  She was really lucky to be paired with me tonight.  I had an escape plan ready.
