2 "Centance" Story

Post  TOvA~ on Tue Jan 18, 2011 1:07 am

Let's start a little improv writing project here, you know, to get our juices flowing again.
Let's post only 2 sentences at a time and no posting 2 times in a row


When Gerald saw her, he went a sickly pale, like the color of thrown up rice.
He really believed he buried her half way to China.

"I should have checked the body more throughly" he thought. That was over ten years ago.

He rapidly paged through his memory to the moment he buried her. Like an old worn book with fading words, he could no longer see if she was dead or just unconscious.

She walked right past him without any sign of recognition. "She didn't know me." He thought, but she had glanced back at him when he wasn't looking.

"How can she not recognize me" he raged within. "That simply can't be 'her' then" he thought, trying to sooth himself from the horror of seeing someone so striking like Ana.

He turned back and saw her staring at him; or was she, it was hard to be sure at this distance. He wracked his brain trying to remember if she ever mentioned having a twin.

A twin, he thought, that MUST be it... Because Ana was worm food, that much he was 100% sure of.

He slipped out of the terminal with only his carry on and headed for the parking garage. He didn't notice the petite blonde woman who followed him out taking care not to be seen by him.

He was too busy checking his phone, to see that he was being followed.
Ana moved like water around corners & stairwells, until she was able to see him get into his car so she could jot down his license plate number.

It was sloppy of him, and he should have known better considering his extensive covert training. But he was shaken and stirred by the sight of a resurrected "project."

Once she got the number, she returned to the terminal, grabbed her own baggage and quickly headed back home, anxious to do some research. While it was pure dumb luck she saw him at the airport, she somehow always knew, this day would come.

And come it did. Now the only question was what to do about it.

Ana rushed home so quickly, she was stopped my the best looking cop she has ever seen, for speeding. There was something about him, something very familiar she couldn't quite put her finger on. He took his own sweet time checking her out, all the while smiling like a cat that just found a canary, but not in a hungry way. Eventually he let her off with a stern & lengthy warning that culminated with a final haunting question..."Ana, don't you recognize me?"

There was a familiarness about him but she could't put her finger on it. She looked closer but to no avail. "It seems to me that I should recognize you but there are no bells ringing." He smiled slightly and started to answer when his radio sounded.

"Well, if any of your 'bells' go off... here is my card, ring me up" he said using a more personal tone.
"Why officer Grady, are you flirting with me?"
"Yes mam, as I recall, you always enjoyed a good flirt" he replied shyly as he turned to leave.
Now that is strange Ana thought, I can even recall the last time I flirted, nor do I remember even liking it....

Suddenly she panicked. How do I not know someone who knows me, yet think I know someone I have never seen before... or have I? I know who I am; she continued in her thought, I know this is my car, but I don't know where I have been or have any memory of knowing anyone. Then she realized that she was missing 10 years.

Could it be? 10 years gone? She knew her name, and was able to recognize 2 people today, but had no idea from where or why. The only thing knew for sure, was how she felt....and she feel sick to her stomach when she saw the man in the airport, and she felt kinda giddy around the cop just now.
She sat down at her computer and thought, well, at least I remember how to do 'this', as she logged on.

As she gazed at her monitor she noticed another confusing anomaly. There it was glowing back at her from computer screen. 'Last log on Mar 10 2011 7:56 AM.' That was only a week ago she thought, how can that be if I'm missing 10 years she wondered.

What would account for missing time she continued as she google disorders that might explain it to her. Is it possible, that I am missing time all the time she asked herself? Just then, the house phone rang in the boarding house lobby. She heard Mama Jones call her name... it was for her?

When she heard the voice on the other end a chill went up her spine. She knew that voice. Then suddenly she had a face and a name to go with it. It was Gerald that creepy guy she passed earlier, the one who pretended not to know her.

Her mind started racing, she closed her eyes rubbing at the scar on the side of her neck. She opened her eyes but there was something covering them, she tried to move but her body wouldn't budge. All she could see in her mind was the face of her captor, Gerald. She could feel his breath and his scratchy voice against her ear.

Sam, who was bucking to get off the traffic beat and get into investigations, knew something was off with Ana. He had a Detectives instincts and talk about bells going off! It had only been a year since she had broken up with him, but she seemed like a completely different person. Something wasn't right... he could smell it. It was as if... she didn't even 'know' him and they had spent 2 of the happiest years of his life together.
