It’s Friday, time for another Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction story!
Last week, Alice and her mother caught Kevin on a date with another woman. When Alice confronted Kevin, she discovered the woman was her father’s half-sister, Clara, who is in serious trouble.
This week something dreadful will happen to Alice as a result…
Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the challenge, and Jill Wisoff for today’s photo prompt, which led me directly to this weeks’ 100-word story.

Alice pulled her bound arms and stretched her neck towards the window.
The last thing she remembered was meeting Clara, hers father’s step-sister. Then came gunshots, cries, darkness and finally silence.
‘Who are you?’ She screamed as a masked man pulled the duct tape off her mouth and freed her arms.
‘Where are my parents?’
‘Right here,’ he said handing her the phone. ‘You have ten seconds to tell them you’re alive.’
‘Mom, Dad, tell Bill I’m on the top floor of a low-rise in Brooklyn Heights.’
The man grabbed the phone. ‘That was mistake,’ he said, as his fist smashed into her face.
To be continued…
