Kidnapped

Suddenly

A hand

Clamps over my mouth.

I squirm and then kick --

Hard.

The kidnapper cries out

In pain

But doesn’t let go.

I try to remember my last lesson

With my mom

But nothing comes to mind.

For the first time in my life

I panic.

Time passes

As I kick and wrestle

To break free.

In the end,

The kidnapper

Throws me

In the back of a car

And drives away.

We go over speed bumps

And through long passageways.

The whole time I'm

Thinking

I should know what to do.

This is what I’ve been trained for

My whole life.

And then

Everything

Goes

Black.

The End
