Hello, dear Readers! Is it really Friday already? This week has flown by! Time again for Friday Fictioneers, picking up Nick and Emmeline’s story where we left off last week with mysterious messages, someone named Constantine, and chatty receptionists.
Are You With Me?
“Who’s Constantine?” The question was out of Nick’s mouth the moment he and Emmeline were in the elevator. “Em? Are you alright? Don’t say yes; you’re white as a ghost.”
Emmeline didn’t answer. She was staring up at the elevator’s ceiling, her lips moving in soundless words.
Nick frowned. “Em?”
Her hands clenched around the unread messages in her hands.
“Talk to me Em. What’s going on? Who is Constantine?”
Finally Emmeline looked at Nick, her face grave. “I’m very sorry Nicholas, but my life is about to get complicated and dangerous. I need to know. Are you with me?”
