Weekend Writing Warriors – Nina’s Caught, but for What?
This week, I’m continuing on with Nina’s confrontation with bad guys. You don’t need to have read my previous WWW entries in order to get the gist of this. Basically, Nina has chosen to go down a dark alley after grocery shopping. Here’s what happens:
“Sorry, lady, but we’re not interested in groceries,” the headman said. “And you couldn’t possibly have enough credits.” He nodded, and the three thugs behind her grabbed for Nina.
Her scream echoed in the tunnel, making the headman cringe, but he didn’t move. She swung her grocery bags, hoping forlornly they’d do some damage to any of the three who reached for her arms. Milk splattered all over the nearest tunnel wall and ran down into a puddle, and rice spilled onto the concrete, making Nina’s feet slip around, but the thugs weren’t slowed at all. She struggled against their hands, kicked at their shins, and tried to stomp on their feet. There were just too many of them, and their preparation far outweighed her old military training.
What do you think their nefarious plans are for her? I think it’s safe to say, it doesn’t look good.
