DAMSEL IN DISTRESS
Everything hurt. Her eyes and nose were still on fire. Her ears were clogged. The very act of breathing was torture. And she couldn’t tell if she still had arms and legs. Dara had never been one to give in to self pity, but she was hopeless. No one knew where she was. She didn’t know where she was. It felt like she’d been trapped for days, but she knew that couldn’t be right. When was someone going to find her? Was anyone even looking for her? The only thing she clung to was the text message she’d sent to Chuck. When he saw her number, she was positive he’d read and understand it. She was positive he was on his way to save her.
