Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your post must include a speeding car, a phone call, and a crisp, bright morning. (Wildcard: you can swap any of the above for a good joke.)
There I was watching the sun rise from my balcony as I sipped my first cup of coffee in the morning. No indications of the kind of day that I was going to have. I showered and shaved and got dressed and stepped out into the crisp, bright morning – the kind of morning that was sunny and yet it was so fresh and cool breezes flowing throughout the day that the air felt just like champagne. Ah, drink in that freshness.
As I was walking on by to do my errands for the day – go to the bank, collect some money and then perhaps do some shopping and then find some nice bistro to have a leisurely lunch, I notice a bright red sports car that just speed past me. Two minutes later, it passed me again from the opposite direction, the unseen driver slowing down briefly near me (as if to take a good look at me) before speeding off again. “One of my fans” I laughed to no one in particular and went to the bank. My wallet fat with cash I walked to the nearby mall and did my shopping. I came out, a few bags in my hands when my phone rang. I could only hear breathing for about 30 seconds and then a woman’s voice said “They’re coming for you. Be careful!” before it got cut off.
I didn’t know what to think of it and was about to walk to get some lunch when the red car screeched in front of me and the passenger side swung open as if for me to enter. I looked inside to see a woman in jeans and a leather jacket brandishing a gun with a large silencer in my direction and motioning for me to get into the car. “Co-operate if you value your life” and so I got and the doors closed as she drove us off as fast as possible. To where, I could only guess!
