A Reasonable Plan And A Narrow Escape

Admittedly, Sara had been distracted by his charming accent and boyish grin, but in her defense, the bulge in his front pocket did suggest a USB drive. Joining him in his room overlooking the Bellagio fountains seemed like a reasonable plan until he captured her mouth and pawed at her zipper. Seductively slipping her hand into his empty pocket it became clear that he was not her intended contact.

Making her escape, Sara untangled herself from his slobbering and shimmied out the bathroom window. It occurred to her, looking down at her shoe on the Vegas Strip, “Hotel ledges always look wider on the big screen”.

    1. Don’t you think Roxy should go to Vegas? She’d be hilarious in big hair, sequins and stilettos. Shaz in a mini-maternity dress would be a riot.

  2. Very good reason to drop a shoe somewhere I think. Nice story.

    1. Poor Sara. She always seems to have the wrong shoes for her mission.

    1. Me neither. Sara is my alter ego, although I would hope that I could tell the difference between a USB and a “man’s calling card”. Ha ha, I just made that phrase up. Thanks Courtney.

  4. That hasn’t worked for her. That usb drive must be veeery important. Fun vignette.

    1. Probably critical international secrets. Too bad she missed her real contact. Poor Sara, bless her heart.

    That made me laugh. She must be very focused to associate a bulge in a man’s front pocket with a usb drive. Fun story.

    1. She’s a little naive if she can’t tell the difference at a glance. Back to anatomy class.

  7. Dear Tracey,

    Oops. Perhaps there should’ve been a code word. I’m terrified of heights so being out on that ledge looking down at Las Vegas got to me.
    A word of C if I may. I don’t think you need “Making her escape” in the last paragraph. We know from the action and the title. That will give you three extra words to play with. No need to thank me. πŸ˜‰
    Good one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    1. I will always thank you my Dear and I see your point. Her action speaks for itself. Also, I’m probably over by at least 3 words anyway. I start with 120 words, cut to 100 then tweak to 106. Ha ha

    Is that a USB drive or are you just pleased to see me?

    Darn, I was grinning in anticipation of writing exactly what micklively just wrote, word for word πŸ™‚
    Sara seems to be taking all this in her stride. I’m sure when you’re actually on a ledge high above the street, it does suddenly seem smaller.
    Great story!

    I hope she wasn’t in high heels up on that ledge. Something tells me she was way up there, too. A charming accent will get you anytime. Nice one, Tracey!

    1. Of course she was in high heels.

    I’ve just seen the latest James Bond movie, and I think he could teach Sara a thing or two about leaping about on rooftops – probably he could also teach her how to recognise a USB drive. Love your story, Tracey.

    1. I haven’t seen the new movie but James Bond always makes me want to be a spy. I think Sara is closer in nature to Agent Cooper -Melissa McCarthy in “Spy” than to Ms. Money Penny. Actually I created Sara before I saw “Spy”. Thanks Margaret.

    Oh, the Perils of Sara. I have a feeling she gets herself in these predicaments regularly. What a fun piece.

    1. oh la la, was it the flash drive that interested you or the thrill of hanging from a precarious ledge? I think I would have stayed inside with the boyish grin personally.
