Interiors

She was lying face-down behind the front seats of the dilapidated car.

The seats’ backside was shorn down to steel railings covered with rust which kept bumping into her as the car moved.

The tyre kept on the other side adding to her feeling of being crushed.

She lifted her head slightly to see that the kidnapper had gone out of the car, leaving his cap on the passenger seat, his goggles hanging on what could be called a dashboard had it been in a normal car.

And the only thing she could think was – Is this vehicle going to survive this kidnapping?

  1. This kidnapper is a few loaves short of a baker’s dozen. He is not being inconspicuous, the kidnapped is where others can see and the “car” certainly is doubtful to make the trip.

  2. excellent last line. well done.

    in this sentence, “The seats’ backside was shorn down to steel railings covered with rust which kept bumping into her as the car moved.” by using the word “which,” it means that the rust kept bumping into her. using “which” usually refers to the previous noun, right before it, which was rust. it might be better to use “and” instead.

  3. That’s a strong lady. She is thinking all the right things in the hour of distress. Wondering what the context could be. Reminded me of this character – Fiona in a TV series called Burn Notice
