BlogFlash 2012 Day Fourteen: Children

“Where am I?” Eliza said, looking around the room.

“You’re safe, at home,” Rowland’s soothing voice said. He was sitting on the edge of her bed, holding her hand in his.

“What happened?”

“I found you passed out in the woods and carried you home. You’ve been out for a whole day.”

“My class!” Eliza shot up, but immediately laid back down.

“The children are fine. I called the school and they got a substitute.”

“In the woods…There was someone there. I heard a voice, but I blacked out before I saw anyone.”

Then it hit Eliza why the voice in the woods sounded so familiar. It belonged to Vick, the man she met at Rowland’s birthday celebration.

“What did the voice say?” Rowland asked.

“I… don’t remember,” she lied.

    Apparently I was the only one not super smart enough to make a single story out of all the posts — this is terrific.

    Great stuff, as usual! We’re still none the wiser really on who Vick is and what he’s up to, but I’m intrigued why Eliza is lying to Rowland. Has the seed of doubt taken route?
