pause @AprilA2Z @AtoZChallenge #AtoZChallenge

When I woke up and realized that he wasn’t in the vacation house, I breathed a sigh of relief.

But when I realized that the front door had a double deadbolt, that he had locked me in and that I had no key, I thought that I would never breathe again.

It was at that very instant that everything my gut had been telling me for months became crystal clear…

***********************************************

This is not part of my A to Z Challenge posts.

A reader asked how I got the idea for this A to Z Challenge story and that was the incident that sparked the story idea.

I wanted to speak to the red flags that we often choose to ignore when we don’t follow our gut feelings.

When I rewrite the story into a fuller length piece, I will share the outcome of this incident with my readers but not right now.

Sometimes sharing a few real experiences weaved into fiction can open the eyes of those with theirs tightly shut.

Hindsight is 20/20 and that your gut never lies.

Stay home, stay safe, stay health, stay strong.

  1. I may be wrong … but I think you might have been the very first person I pushed the ‘follow’ button for. And it was (and remains) because you are not predictable – you let your ideas loose and allow them to follow their own path.
    Thank you.
