It’s Friday, time for another of Alice’s stories with Friday Fictioneers. Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the weekly Friday Fictioneers challenge and for her photograph. This week the prompt has taken me to a crime story. Alice’s parents have inherited a mansion and a great deal of money from Alice’s grandmother, but as a result, she is in danger.
‘Let me go!’ Alice struggled against her captor.
‘How much is she worth?’ he asked.
The driver turned towards them in the back seat. ‘Dimitrov’s following us. Keep her head down.’
They were the last words Alice heard before the car swerved, scraped the guardrails and overturned. The noise was deafening, then silence as she crawled out, blood trickling down her face.
‘I’ll take her to the hospital.’ said a smartly dressed man picking her up. ‘Call an ambulance for them.’ He nodded at the unconscious men inside the car.
‘You’re safe now, Alice,’ he said as they drove away.
Is Alice safe? Who is Dimitrov? Who were her captors? We’ll see where the following prompts lead Alice.
All my ‘Alice’ flash fiction written for the Friday Fictioneers Challenge can be read as standalones, but if you’re interested in reading previous stories of Alice’s adventures, here they are!
