FLY WITH ME
This is Tiffany’s story, who receives a call from the police one morning forcing her to deal with a chapter from her past, which she is unhappy to revisit. When she calls her friend Dylan, it’s Mat from New Zealand she ends up talking to.
This is still a WIP, so critique away. It’s set partly in Melbourne, Australia, and in New Zealand.
Thanks … and enjoy 🙂
Twenty minutes later, Tiffany and Dylan sat in a small, barren room opposite Senior Constable Jones and Sergeant Harris. She tried hard controlling her shaking body with a few slow and deep breaths, but to no avail. Her skin was cold and clammy making her shiver uncontrollably and hard to calm her nerves.
The officers introduced themselves to Dylan.
“Good meeting you,” Dylan said. “I’m Dylan Casey and a good friend of Tiffany’s.”
Tiffany looked over to him, grateful for his company
Harris nodded as he leaned forward, placing his elbows onto the table. “I’d like to clarify again this is purely a conversation to collect information. Miss Cahill is free to reply to answers at her will. Nothing will be recorded.”
Dylan looked at Tiffany giving her an almost imperceptible nod.
“Okay,” she replied to Harris.
“You knew Thomas Terrill as Josh,” Jones asked as she slid a photo across the table towards Tiffany.
“You were in a relationship at the time?”
“A brief encounter is what I’d call it.”
Harris gave a slow nod, then asked, “When did you see him last?”
“About a year ago.”
“Why did you stop the contact?”
“The evil bastard beat me to unconsciousness.”
Although both Harris and Jones kept their expressions straight, Tiffany was sure she saw something like surprise and sympathy on Jones’ face.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Good Lord. I didn’t expect her to say that. No wonder she doesn’t want to revisit the past.
Thank you, Karen 🙂 Glad you liked it.
Very dramatic revelation – excellent snippet!
Aww – thank you, Veronica 🙂
That explains why she’s been so unnerved about all this.
Yu 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, PT
Okay – that’s a good reason to leave a relationship!
Yes, it is. Thanks, Aurora.
That last line came as a real shocker — even to the police.
Glad you liked, it, Ed.
Whoa! Way to drop a line. Nice snippet.
LOL … Thanks, Janell 🙂
I thought that might be the reason. Still, good reveal.
Thank you. Glad you liked it 🙂
Good grief! No wonder she’s shaking.
🙂 Thanks, Elaine.
Horrible as the incident was, I’m glad she didn’t try to minimize or sugar coat her answer.
That’s a damn good reason to stop all contact.
No wonder the poor girl is frightened beyond comprehension! Evil bastard feels like too…easy a title for him now. I’m glad she has someone with her, but I wonder why they cops are looking for this somewhat ex of hers. Hopefully Jones, at the very least, will be easier toward her after that confession.
We’ll find out soon why she is asked all those questions … and I can say, the police are “on her side”. Thanks for stopping by, daelyn!
