Almost didn’t make it. Then suddenly an idea came to me and off I went with it. Crispina’s CCC challenge has seduced me once again!
Catriona ran like the hounds of hell were after her. She could not believe she was going to be late today, of all days. Everything went wrong. Her alarm didn’t go off. She got a run in her stockings and had to search for a replacement pair. She missed the bus so took the subway, which took her three blocks away from where she had to be. Was the Universe trying to tell her something?
She kept repeating: “Please wait, please wait, please wait!” knowing there was no possibility of a second chance. He had warned her he was done waiting for her.
Catriona finally arrived at the staircase to find Sam taking the first step to the last section.
“Sam!” she yelled. Stop! “I’m here! I’m sorry I’m late! Please, wait!”
No hesitation. No look in her direction. He continued climbing. Away from her. Out of her life.
