Damon was looking at the gigantic fish tank that was in the hotel cafe.  He was thinking how carefree the fish looked as they glided through the water effortlessly.

The man he had seen before was sitting behind him with his newspaper. He was salivating as he looked toward the door.  Damon followed the direction of the man’s eyes and saw DeeGee. She was wearing a sundress, her auburn hair was flowing over her shoulders in waves, her eyes were sparkling, and her skin looked like silk.  She had a very radiant glow on her face. He swallowed hard and stood up to go to her.

Damon paid the bill while DeeGee went back to her room for her cell phone. The man with the newspaper had gone.  Damon decided to wait until they were alone before telling her that they were brother and sister.

DeeGee thought the elevator was too slow so she decided to take the stairs back down.

Damon notified hotel security when DeeGee never showed up!

  1. I don’t trust the man with the newspaper. However in mysterious disappearances there often is the “red herring” that leads down the wrong path.
    Hope DeeGee is alright, your writing is more than alright!


  2. Hi Jessie ~
    Oh no! This was a face paced piece. Loved the description of DeeGee as she was entering the room. I hope there was a security camera aimed at the icky man with the newspaper. This is really working out – your series and the photo prompts!


  3. Thank you Ellespeth! I’m so glad you are enjoying it. The series has gone on longer than I had planned and now it keeps evolving. I enjoy adding to it each week and usually write more than I’m allowed so I always have to decide what part I want to exclude…which isn’t easy.


  4. The man with the newspaper would definitely be the one I’d suspect here – although that does seem a bit obvious. I suppose I’ll have to just be patient and find out next week. A good development, Jessie – it adds a little more suspense. 🙂
