Happy Sunday. I’m continuing with my WIP, another Alinta Bay story.
Jonah and Maddie are still stuck in the lift.
Maddie thought about it for a beat. “I suppose it wouldn’t hurt if you’d let Maria know. She should be in the hotel waiting for me.”
“Would you have her number?”
Maddie nodded and gave him the contact details. She looked at Jonah. “What about you?”
He shook his head. “Nah, I’m fine. In all honesty, it’s not life threatening. By the time the message gets to my parents, we’re hopefully out of here.”
“I like your optimism.”
The static voice interrupted them again. “I’ll be back in about fifteen minutes. By then we should have you moving along nicely. The technicians are about to start in two minutes. Hang in there.”
Maddie raked her hands through her hair and held it at the back of her head, a small wave of anxiety washing through her. Desperate, she tried to think of something else to ask when she remembered he’d never really answered her initial question in the first place.
As she was about to sit down again, she asked, “So what is this fine specimen of a man doing for money in Taupo?”
He chuckled as he stepped closer, hopefully to sit next to her and hold her hand again.
Yet, he didn’t get the chance, when a sudden jolt yanked the lift, leaving it lopsided.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Being lopsided in the close confines of an elevator shaft sounds serious indeed!
I would go as far as scary 😉
Uh oh, doesn’t sounds like these technicians are going to be too helpful! Enjoying the story, another great snippet!
Thank you Veronica.
Oh crap! Elevators freak me out, so I can empathize with her.
Thank you 🙂
