This man’s hands were sitting idly at his hips, just sort of hanging there. “Can I please sit down with you for a few minutes of your time? ” His voice, she was sure, was supposed to convey trustworthiness.

By the time he was done, she’d want to die. There was no going back now. There was no need to. She had everything she needed in this little car, her escape a couple of days early, but well planned out.
