The Rush

I just hope he keeps following me. He’ll never suspect that Rick took the other car.

On reflection I wonder that we didn’t start this earlier but we were too busy conforming to societal standards. It all started when we couldn’t afford the best treatment for little James.

Is he still following me, better slow down a bit?

Now it’s the excitement as the adrenaline rush has really kicked in. We could retire comfortably but what for. Rick and I love these mind games then the chase. 

Shame James isn’t here to share the fun of ‘acquiring’ their identities.

 

Carrot Ranch Challenge, January 3, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a character who looks back. It can be a metaphorical reflection or a glance in the rear-view mirror. Who is looking back, and why? Go where the prompt leads.

  1. Interesting how differently folks cope with loss… Sounds to me like this game of cat and mouse is one ‘they’ who are missing little ‘James’ actually want to lose.
