FFfAW-The Red Tiger

She told me to meet her at the Red Tiger at 6:30 pm. I was there at the right time but she never showed up.

After an hour, I paid my tab and left the restaurant. As I was walking down the sidewalk I noticed him following me.

I ran around the corner and into a building, running up the stairs to get away. I watched from a window and the man starting running trying to find me.

What is going on?

Then I remembered. She had told me she had something to tell me.

Now I must find her.

  1. Oh no, I have a feeling she was cheating on him or she’s in a group or something. Whatever it is, I don’t think it’ll end well for him. Great suspense.

  2. Ooh, what a great mystery you have there! It sounds like what she had to tell the narrator was something pretty dangerous, and that she might be in a lot of trouble — I can feel the anxiety. Great writing!

  3. PJ, you have provided all the ingredients for mystery and suspense, and now I want to know more, thats not fair.πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚

  4. eerie hide and seek – and in broad daylight too! love the suspense and the ideas going through my head – nice writing PJ! Not a sad one this time – a great exciting one!

  5. Great suspense, leaving lots of questions! I hope the follower doesn’t find her. She will have to be very careful when looking for her friend. Hopefully, he has done nothing to her friend. Apparently she doesn’t know who this guy is, but he knows who she is! This story can go in all different directions….great job on this, Joy.

  6. Yikes! Now I’m left hanging!

    I’m so impressed with how your writing style is progressing, PJ…and that you offer us this forum to grow and expand our own styles.


  7. The beginning of an interesting adventure, perhaps a thriller? I wonder what she was going to tell him? It must have been important if she’s gone now and some guy is following the narrator. He needs to find out fast! Loved this PJ. Great job!

  8. Great suspense built up in this one, PJ. I think she’s right to be worried for the friend who didn’t turn up. I like the way you leave us all wondering how it will all end. Well written!

  9. Oh this is good….first I love the name of the restaurant and second what was it that she had to tell you??? Wondering minds want to know!! Such intrigue, I think this one needs to be continued!! Please? πŸ˜‰ xo

I would love to read your thoughts...
