Tuesday Tales - CORN - Where #Authors #Write to a #prompt ~ #romance #mustread




Welcome to Tuesday ... Welcome to Tuesday Tales ...

I continue with  Rachel's story. I introduced her in "I think I love you", the third book in the "Australian Sports Stars Series". She's Sarah's sister.
 
Today's prompt is  CORN .

Harris nodded. “Thomas Terrill was charged with possession of drugs last year. You are noted as a witness.” He paused, checked his little notepad, and continued. “He’s also known as Frank.”

Leaning her head against the door, Rachel took a deep breaths to steady herself.

“Are you okay, Miss Winter?” Harris asked.

“Please open the door,” Jones requested.

Holding up her hand, she replied, “I haven’t seen him since then. I have nothing to do with whatever trouble he’s in.” Tears started to trickle down her cheeks, and she took another two deep breaths before standing straight and meeting Harris’ gaze. He held up a corn-coloured business card.

“We need to talk to you. You’re not in trouble, but we need your help.” Then he squeezed the card into the small gap of the door frame. “This is my number. Please call us when you have somebody with you and we can have a talk.”

She nodded, appreciating him leaving the card in the door and not asking her to open up.

“Will you be okay, Miss Winter?” Jones asked again.

The simple answer was no, but again, she nodded, hoping for this nightmare to end soon.

Senior Constable Jones and Sergeant Harris left, and Rachel watched them leave in their car. Only then did she close the door, leaned against it, and slid down, not able to hold back the flood of tears and the uncontrollable sobs that shook her body.

Rachel wasn’t sure how long she sat there before she was finally able to get up and reach the phone in the kitchen. Dialling the familiar number, it didn’t take long for someone to answer.”

    1. Hahaha ... a bit of cheating with the prompt, I suppose. Thanks Joselyn :-)
