“Uh, uh, uh…”
“What gimp?” Timothy spat at me.
“You killed Bonnie,” I blurted out.
“Who the hell are you talking about?”
Timothy was still talking tough, but I could tell my question rattled him. His posture tightened. He started to blink rapidly as he stared at me.
“Bonnie Bagwell. You met her in this casino. Three years ago, in July. She was never seen again.”
Timothy let out a single laugh. He was out of breath.
“What did you do to her?” I yelled.
“Does it really matter,” He muttered under his breath. “She was a whore just like this one right here.”
I rolled off of the bed and onto the floor. Timothy went for the door, but Bobbi sealed it off.
“You shouldn’t have said that,” Bobbi screamed in Timothy’s face.
Bobbi pushed Timothy. His slender frame fell over mine on the floor and he fell between me and the bed.
I pushed myself around and came face-to-face with his dark eyes. I closed mine.
I opened my eyes in a dark tent. The air was unbearable hot. I could feel my clothes had already been sweated through. I couldn’t see a thing, but I could feel that someone was in there with me.
My senses were confirmed when I felt the cold blade of a knife slash across my arm. I screamed out and recoiled until I was stopped by the thin plastic of the wall of the tent.
“Who is there?” I screamed into the dark.
“Ah fuck, I was just trying get that fuckin camel spider that got in here,” a raspy voice I didn’t not recognize answered back.
I felt the wind of the knife swipe at me before I could react. It seemed it barely missed the bridge of my nose.
I dropped down and put my hands out, reverted to my high school wrestling skills. I grabbed the dark assailant around the waste. I felt the knife flail over my shoulder. I had him in a hold which would prevent him from getting fatal leverage with his weapon.
My attacker gave me a hard kick in the gut, but I didn’t flinch. I drove my shoulder into him until I pummeled the wind out of of him and was lying on top of his panicking body.
I felt the knife fall out of his grasp and slide down my back. I grabbed the six-inch blade from behind me and wrapped it up in my hand, poised it at my side.
