The kidnapper

Only one man stood at the midway point of the bridge. As Patricia approached with the rolling cooler she started to sweat.

“Where’s the money,” said the kidnapper?

“Where’s Henry? I want proof he’s alive,” said Patricia.

The kidnapper handed Patricia an iPhone. “Hit redial.”

The call picked up on the first ring. Seconds later came Henry’s hoarse voice, “Hello.”

“Henry, don’t worry….,” the call dropped.

“The money’s in the cooler,” said Patricia.

A van speed up the bridge. Tires squealed, the door opened and Henry dropped out of the van. As Henry and Patricia embraced, two gunshots rang out.

  1. I so hoped for a good ending that I’m thinking that there was a police back-up team at the transfer, which has now shot the kidnappers!! Thank you for a great read! Alex

  2. Dear Cole, You wrote this so good! I love it and it’s scary – my gosh, there’s no honor among kidnappers anymore. She paid the money and then two gunshots rang out. Not fair! Good job with the prompt! Nan 🙂
