New! Booky Noise VI
While I am gone, would you all take a look at Jeannie's opening to her book "No Apologies" and give her some feedback. Does it float your boat? Tickle your twines? Get your toes acurling?
Okay, talk amongst yourselves until I get home Sunday!
“Take your clothes off.”
“Take them off.”
Ephraim pointed his really big gun at me as I stood on Gunnison Beach. A crisp October breeze cut across the sand and maked me shiver. The soft shimmer of moonlight cast an eerie silver glow across the water, making it seem like a mocking entity ready to pounce, but the real threat stood before me.
“You have what you came for, just leave.”
“Strip, damn it.” Ephraim took a step forward and aimed that gun at my heart. “Now.”
“Please, you don’t have to do this.” Thinking rape and murder and everything in between I kept inching back, away from the gun. “Take the money, it’s yours. Please just leave.”
“I want your clothes.”
“But why? I’ve done what you said. You have the money.”
“I want you naked so you don’t get any ideas about following me.”
“Oh, no.” A sense of relief, “I won’t follow you. I’ll just sit here and count to a hundred or something.”
“Sorry dear, but I have no reason to trust you. Now give me your clothes before I put a bullet in between those pretty green eyes.” The gun came up to give me a good look down its long barrel.
Gathering all the courage in my soul I raised my chin defiantly and said, “No. I refuse.”
“Then I’ll have to shoot you.” Ephraim said. I backed up a step, legs shaking and thought of Judy. It was all I could do not to look up to the dune where she was hidden video taping this exchange. She told me this would be an easy drop. Just hand off the money and leave, she just needed proof, that’s all.
Ephraim pulled the little thingy back on the top of the gun with an ominous click.
I flung off my denim jacket, ripped my t-shirt over my head and kicked off my shoes and jeans. It was a no choice situation and as much as I didn’t want to do this, even more I didn’t want to get shot. As I stood there in my bra and panties Ephraim said, “Everything.”
