Happy Sunday. I’m continuing with my WIP, another Alinta Bay story.
Jonah and Maddie are still stuck in the lift.
It took Jonah a moment to figure out what had happened. His legs had given way by the yank and he momentarily had lost his balance, he was now holding on for life on wooden railing. Maddie’s groans got his attention, and he instantly knelt in front of her when he saw her holding her hand against her forehead.
Carefully, he moved her hand aside. She was bleeding from a little cut. “Shit.”
“You’re not wrong,” she muttered.
He reached for his phone in his pocket and switched on the torch to check the wound.
“Hold this and point it towards your head.”
Without looking, she held up her other hand, and he placed the phone into her hand before positioning it to have the light on her forehead.
“If you keep saying this, I will divorce you.”
Unable to hold back his laugh, he replied, “I will keep that in mind.” He looked around. “Got a tissue or something?”
“Maddie, you’re not making this easy. The quicker I can cover the wound, the quicker I can tell the technician what’s happened.”
She moved her head slightly, but stopped with a groan, and without any hesitation he pulled the edge of his shirt from his pants and ripped off a corner.
“My hero,” she said just above a whisper. He placed it on her forehead and was about to stand when he saw the colour drain from her face. She was about to faint.
