Almost there. A little more distance only.

I reached the atrium and placed myself at an angle.

This is where he said I should meet him.

He told me what color he would be wearing, where he would stand and what he would do to make me sure it was him.

I was early, my normal practice. I always reach a place ahead of time so I could take note of everything.

It’s past the time we had agreed upon.

I glance around, trying to see through the crowds.

I sense him behind me.

I turn.

Oh, oh, oh…

  1. Oh dear…sounds like the encounter is not going to plan. I hope she comes out of the encounter unscathed. BTW I like the title very much, with its play on ‘Met’.


  2. And she is overcome by his beauty/ ugliness. Great ending leaving the reader to think and decide.


  3. I think she is instantly attracted and she sees he feels the same about her but then remembers she is there to arrest him in a quite different way πŸ™‚


  4. These Oh, ohs provoke a mental ‘Aaaaah’ in me. I don’t think it’s a good meeting, and the crowd is good for anonymity.
