(In Korea, today is known as Buddha’s Birthday. While I am not a follower of Buddha, I am thankful that the Koreans gives a national holiday off. Now if only they could give tomorrow off…but that’s asking too much. Here’s today’s fictioneers.)

Brock ran into the portico, looking around quickly.
The vacation was supposed to be a dream. Perth, Australia was to be a dream for Brock Adamson. A dual citizen of France and Canada, he was easily waved into the country on his tourist visa.
And after only a couple days, on the run due to his past. A past that had two men following him and nearly taking off one of his legs.
He ran inside the building, and looked at the receptionist.
“Mademoiselle, I need safety. I’m being chased.”
“We know. We’ve been waiting.”
Oh dear! That click–camera, I hope, not a gun!
Oooo. I knnow what the click meant. Nice twist.
Click, bang, dead. Oops.
Oh… who should you trust in the end…
That was brutal. He must have done something truly awful.
She opens a door to hide him😉
Ouuuu, what an ominous *click*. Good story, well told. Left all all hanging on the edge of our seats.
So now is it ” Eeeek!” or is it “Thank goodness!”? Stay tuned… 😊
So much for paradise? Good story!
Poor Brock, although we don’t know what he did, maybe he deserved that end. Nice story that lets me fill in the blanks.
Looks like he walked right into a trap. That must be a “click here to read the rest of the story” 😉
Oh, oh, oh. How fickle! No one is trustworthy! Like it that you triggered our imagination with that click, pun intended!☺
Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide, nicely atmospheric
