The Abduction (IV) by CpSingleton © 2016

The graceful lady, who introduced herself as Misha, sat across from the man she knew for a fact went under the name Richard and watched him squirm, impassively.

Even as she heard him stammer and stutter several apologies, while he mopped up his tepid beverage with the stack of paper napkins he wouldn’t have needed otherwise, she still didn’t waiver from the idea that he was the right choice.

‘Should I order another drink for us both?’ She asked.

‘No, let me,’ he replied quickly. ‘What can I get you?’

‘I’ll have a glass of H2O, please,’ she asked with a smile.

‘Erm…okay,’ he replied with a frown.

She could sense that he wondered if she was being, what his kind called, silly. She decided to allow him to reason that out for himself.

‘Erm…would that be still or sparkling H2O?’ 

‘Still, please.’

‘Still it is,’ he replied and trotted over to the counter like a new born gazelle.

She liked gazelles.

She also liked the fact that due to the way she had asked for her drink his nerves had calmed down a little.

This was never going to work if he remained on edge.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. Why can’t she just ask for water? How pretentious. by the way, pretentious is our word of the day. Anyway, you have a real knack for fiction. I guess that’s why your insults to me are so believable, when we all know you think I’m adorable. And by all. I mean ME
