Sash will presume I’ve abandoned her again. She’ll be pissed.
The car jerks around a corner, flinging me against the locked door, bound hands useless. Wish I could see. Fabric coarse against my face. Air growing heavy. Head spiralling.
How long will Sash wait before she gives up on me? How long before she braves the streets, cursing me all the way to the hostel? And how long before anger turns to worry?
Too long, I’m thinking.
Too long for me.
If I’m going to get out of this, I’m going to need to rescue myself.
